I've been testing out the Emulators Digital had put on the homescreen via the Launcher plugin, with mixed results, some of my emulators seem to work while others don't, and I get some errors when adding new launch items that I have to click "OK" on the dialog quiclky, or the xbox seems to lock up on me. Although, this has nothing to do with the skin. Maybe when this hits public we can get some people motivated to get Launcher to play a little more nice with Xbox.

Very nice. Thank you. I threw it in and tried it once, and I can only see a few areas where there are going to be problems...

Namely, "AFBEELDINGEN" is too big for the menu, so maybe you have another word that is shorter but means the same thing?

I will PM you in a moment with a link that for the new build that includes your strings. I'll be trying stuff out now to see how it looks, if you can see any places where shorter strings are needed, feel free to re-edit your strings.xml file to reflect these changes.

You know...I really think I've got something here. Every damned screen is just breathtaking...

No, that's just for debugging purposes. It's useful when designing new views to know what viewmode is being displayed if something *doesnt* show up. I'll remove it presently. Wink

Digtial one request and to me its rather simple, but for others and myself it might not be.

Can You/I/We post up whatever version of Windows, Mac, Xbox or whatever is required to run this skin. The reason I ask is because when I was testing it a while back my Xbox didn't run right simply because I needed a newer version and felt like an idiot until I figured it out. Now that there has been a release or two since then I might be out of wack again.

Now I know when I updated my windows version it ran a bit better, but I haven't kept up with verisons lately and don't know where I am in the scheme of things.

TBH, I think that anything after rev 18627 will work. Any of the new features are just clever coding, it's nothing that requires bleeding-edge stuff.

On the serenity page, I have links to all of the various 3rd party release threads under the downloads section.

I'd suggest you make your 'official' requirement recommend Babylon alpha 1 or higher, for those who don't understand svn revisions or how to build them.

Yeah...that's probably a lot easier than telling people to scour the forums for the most recent build. That's why I keep you around, you know. Cuz you're a thinker. Wink

Is the serenity skin out of beta and either way can it be downloaded from somewhere? , not seeing it.

Does one need Babylon 9.04 to run it?

thanks

I would recommend Babylon.

The skin is not availble yet. I'm currently in the process of finalizing it for release, and anticipate being done by this Sunday. Well...I have to be done, as I'll be going back to work next Monday and won't have the free time like I did to work on this badboy.


So yeah...the new "for sure" release date is gonna be...oh wow...easter sunday. Lol.


THIS EASTER...SERENITY WILL RISE. Wink


So, I'm trying to upload a new update for all of you out there in testerland. I went through and fixed several bugs pointed out by Joebrady.

The noteworthy result of this fixing spree is that the fanart now works universally throughout the skin.

This means that every window uses the customized fadetimes (instead of just home), and every window will show the global art image if there isn't an area-specific fanart path specified.

I've also included the new Portugese pr language file provided courtesy of xbs08 and the Dutch file provided by Baukeko. If anybody else out there speaks another language, please, feel free to help out. The string file can be found here:

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=48546

Other than that...yep. Things are coming along nicely.

Oh...I'm also working with krypt2nite to include his iconsets for media flagging so that everybody gets the most bang for their proverbial buck, and I'm pretty sure that asphinx is working on a TV genre poster pack, so that'll be another nice touch.

So set your clocks for the 12th. The easter bunny is gonna bring you something special.

Thanks for the update, I have been working on my movie collection for awhile now, gathering better 1080p versions and better fanart for them, with your new skin they should really shine.
