Is it safe to assume there is a newer version of MiniMeedia lurking in the horizon with all the recent posts in this thread as of late?

Im just curious as this is a pretty nice skin, that just needs a bit of tweaking and updating.

MiniMeedia never bored me.....
Flashiest skin there is, looks always different Rofl (got a lot of backgrounds/fanart.)
Menu is simpel and perfect ! (including left submenuLaugh)
It just let me see what I want to see : Fanart - Poster - Flags - (minimal) Info.
If I want to see an compleet info, I use the info screen (it's made for that)

Imo Best skin there is !!!
Thanks! Flattery will get you everywhere! Wink

I definitely do like that. I'm not totally happy with the Waterfall view as it is and always meant to do something else with it. Maybe this is the answer/inspiration I've been looking for. Big Grin

The only thing I have missing is that I am not able to Localize the temperature so i have hard-coded the degrees C. Anyone know how to get the region based temperature scale?

Thanks for that but I'm reluctant to add any more settings to the skin at the moment so I think that will have to be your own mod for now. Sorry. Frown

Your wish is my command. Wink

It now wraps properly and I've also tweaked the animations when moving between the items to make it look a bit smoother.

Yep, I'll look into adding those changes the next time I'm able to dive into the code. Hopefully sometime in the next couple of days. Wink

This way I do like the waterfall view.

Btw why not add an extra view, I've got 10 different views in MiniMeedia Tongue

MiniMeedia got default 6 views,
One extra view is locked in skin called "exposure" did unlock it.(7)
First custom view, you did see already.(8)
Here are number 9 and 10
[Image: screenshot038f.jpg]

[Image: screenshot040.jpg]

Did create these views a while ago, stopped because wanted to wait until version 1 or when added to SVN.
Now it is !!! It's time to apply al my personal mods and views to the latest SVN.
