Ayla Wrote:Hitcher,

Thanks for the first commit fixes.

Have you fixed "Videos" yet?

Is it an easy fix?
I've got it sort of working.

No matter how temporary the gfx or text may bey those are what I would concentrate on first.

Smile Enjoy
Thanks for the input; that's exactly what I'm hoping to do but I might have to borrow from other skins (PM3.HD properly) to start with as long as no-one has any objects.

Great, thanks!

As soon as "Videos" is working, I will switch to this skin...

And then start to improve it, I hope.

Is there a simple way to change the icons in the menu, to somewhat resemble his original vision?

Is this done by editing an .xml file and simply changing the path to an icon of my choosing? If so, where would I find this xml file?

The images are still there so could be used but I'm not sure about their permission status.

NICE! I have much to learn from you master...

Last noob question for you...When I change the icon in the menu, it is still surrounded by the clear square window. How do I remove that square window to only show the icon in all its glory?

You mean the original icons or the fanart type pictures he later showed? If you mean the original icons I would remove them from github as I recall Duncan saying he had not asked for permission to use them yet.

Nice job on getting the placeholder ones in there. This is exactly what we need for the short term, quick win fixes to get at least a mostly functioning skin.
