Not surprising really as we did a lot of work to get the textures scaled properly and used a lot of border attributes to stretch and scale images where possible (saves on memory usage).

Textures that don't have a border applied to them can be reduced a bit more easily but since there are a lot of gradients and drop-shadows then some of these will be off depending on the differences between the original image and the scaled up version.

People will be able to experiment to find what works best for them and I really hope that people can find ways of optimising it further but it won't be a simple case of just reducing textures in the media folder. Frown

Hi, I'm using the latest Atlantis XBMC TECH-Build on a XBOX (PAL) and the latest Mediastream Skin 0.99 (lite Textures) and I have a bug, when I am trying to access Trainer-Settings for games (it also occures when I use the Standard Texturepack):
[Image: screenshot0f36.png]
This bug has been there since I am using Mediastream (0.90+) - any idea to fix this?

Ok, that looks like a context menu or something that's not been prooperly skinned. Will probably have to ask Jezz which file it is we're missing (don't have any Xbox games so can't test it)

i havent seen any other posts about this so not sure if im alone somehow with this problem...with this newest release i no longer have my movies media count label. in all previous releases it was there, but for some reason it is not there anymore when in movies library. there was somethign about media count fixed in AMT in first post, i have no idea waht thats about or related to this problem.

p.s. i know option requests are closed, but any chance of adding an option to not show status bar when pausing, forwarding or rewinding while watching a movie as it sux to know how much of the movie is left sometimes.

also i had to edit some xml files as you have a switch for textures if using lite.xpr i resized all though textures and the skin looks alot better and runs silky smooth.

Pretty much all those images are already reduced in the lite theme or not shown at all (other than the amt ones) or are you saying that you've reduced them further than in the lite theme?

If you're just reducing them in the default theme then that doesn't really help as all that will do is reduce the quality for all users (even the ones who have no memory problems such as those on Windows/Linux/Mac).

Hi skunkm0nkee,

here are 3 things for mediastream (Thanks again for your work, team razorfish !)

First is : It seems theres is a little bug with "special characters" they are not align with others letters (this bug is everywhere on all pages in the skin) :

[Image: screenshot005.jpg]

the second thing, is an asking Smile : Could you add same informations between these two views ?

[Image: screenshot008.jpg]

[Image: screenshot007.jpg]

The last thing is : possibility to remove "ALL SEASONS" like here in all view modes ? :

[Image: screenshot009.jpg]

Many thanks in advance. If you would like me to make some tests with special characters for example, you're welcome, just PM me.

Good night ! Smile

I think you can disable the all seasons option in the advancedsettings.xml file, you can find out about it in the wiki.

Yes, you can! I have done that... Wink

Have look at: http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Advancedsett...library.3E

And to specific the part that says:
Code:
<hideallitems>true</hideallitems>  <!-- removes the "*All" items from the video library -->

Actually, I was curious how to do this myself, so I checked out the wiki. Here's how you remove the All Seasons option, add this to advancedsettings.xml, between the <AdvancedSettings> and </AdvancedSettings> tags:

Quote: <videolibrary>
<hideallitems>true</hideallitems>
</videolibrary>

What I'd really like to see is a way to get rid of individual season links, so that when you click on a show, you are taken directly into a list of all your episodes ("All Seasons"). I'm sure that's beyond the scope of this skin, though, and more a request for the XBMC devs. Unless this is already possible and someone knows how?

I think that´s possible aswell. Have a look at: http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Videos_Settings#Library

Set "Flatten TV Shows" to "Always". Hopefully that´s what you want. Smile
