This was already covered by Rocky.

then it will use whatever files are in there instaed of the default ones.

Rocky5 Wrote:No you just change it to New Frames in the settings menu.

Kind of a silly idea, but here's a preview for kicks. Just FYI this probably won't work if you just threw the frame in there since one frame might be used for multiple things. It's possible to do something like this I imagine though.

Blueray Style

DVD Style

Note: This isn't my work I only cropped, fitted, and modded it to work with xbmc. Basically it's just a "port" but if there is any use for an idea like this I know the author and would be glad to ask for permission.

OK this texture (videos_bigframe2) is used in nearly all menus with the poster view.

posterwallframe2 i haven't seen where this is used yet though i may have missed it.

also here is what the frames will look like if there black.

I'm liking the black look. It draws less attention away from the posters.

Also Rocky5, noticed with some of my Movie / TV posters and your frames, I'm seeing a small gap between the top of the poster and the frame. Anyone else getting this?

The black is little dark, but I kind of like that. I'd have to try it out on my TV.

Here's a screenshot of the DVD style sleeve in XBMC, still need to slightly bump it down and it'll work perfect.

@neurosis13: If you want you can easily transfer those frames over to IV. I think rocky might have even posted an xpr for it.

Something must be wrong with me as the old frames are the only reason I never used Horizons.

I am re-doing them all lol fixing all the inconsistencies and gaps so it may be tomorrow there released as i am going to a my m8s gig tonight.

ok here is the new version it removes all gaps in the frames also here is what it would look like if i added some sort of outlet for the watched / not watched as you can see the frame is used in more than just movies and tv shows so it look off and i personally don't like it so i wont be adding it in sorry..
