Very quick hackjob for those who want access to Settings. Uncommented & unformatted code, and some average looking button controls, but it's better than nothing ATM.

After downloading place files in folders indicated. Please let me know if it works for you (but also understand it's not by any means a final commit).

Mediafire: Alaska with Settings Menus


Edit: I know I should probably put this up on github or something, but I should be asleep so I thought I'd throw it out there anyway.

How do I create my own viewtype...right now the landscape thumbs look great, or will when completly finished, but this obviously ruins the view for movie posters.

Don't judge the pic and the positioning of the focused thumb, I'm 80% done just thought I'd ask my question now so when I finish the view is good to go....

I've merged 'Empty' with this now so it's completely functional, if it little sparse.

Does that mean that the "Videos" view work?

Could you upload it here or on github...

I tried to add a MyVideo.xml myself but that didn't go too well Confused

I can see the list browser but can't move up or down... hehe

I just did a fresh git checkout and it seems you already fixed it, thanks!

I was watching the commit history on github and it wasn't updated, so I guess I can't trust that?

Thanks! I was hoping someone would implement the landscape thumbs for TV view.

I've got that problem aswell, fixed it by changing Includes.xml at line 45 from:
Code:
    <include name="Dimensions_Fullscreen">
        <posx>0</posx>
        <posy>0</posy>
        <width>1280</width>
        <height>720</height>
    </include>
to
Code:
    <include name="Dimensions_Fullscreen">
        <posx>0</posx>
        <posy>0</posy>
        <width>1280</width>
        <height>720</height>
        <aspectratio>stretch</aspectratio>
    </include>
