so to start the discussion... i was wondering if xbmc skin updates on my site are still needed, since its comming with xbmc now anyways...

please let me know what u think about this.

do you still get xbmc skin updates off my site? and if so, what is the reason for not using the one from the cvs?

the only reason i would envisage that you would need to keep a copy on your site is the numerous people who get builds from the usual places and for whatever reason have incomplete or out of date skins.

having an up to date skin on your site would be alot more efficent than expecting people to all install somthing like wincvs or similar (downloading so many xml's and the textures.png would be quite tiresome.

i personally compile my own so its not an issue for me, but i do think the need for an rar'ed/ zipped copy of the latest version is handy for those that don't compile their own

the number of incompatible/out of date skin posts there have been recently is unbeievable even with jaydee/dday's sticky topic at the top of the x-s board explaining the situation :bomb:

keep up the good work on the skin Smile

having the skin on your site is a good idea "just in case"

although i have another ?
on your screenshot page, i see that your game icons look like the case for them would, did you make those yourself or is there somewhere i can find something similar to them, or should i just do a google search for replacement icons?

here you have the direct link http://www.digitalpropulsion.org/_cover_blank.psd

chokey are you sure than only one thread is enough for all of your work ?
its important to keep the changelog of your skin inside the main page but the link for download the last skin will pertube some personne who don't want to read your warning message about the last necessary cvs needed

xbmc.fr

i dont have enough time anymore to moderate a full forum

i dont really understand what you mean with your issue
the updates page is for the changelog - to download you must go to the downloadsection, where the warning is placed in bold letters...

hello chokemaniac,

first i didn't use the skin in the cvs release because i like the skin with the sub panel more but since you change that again to v2 (and it looks now even better!Wink and both the cvs release as on your site are the same skins. it isn't really necensary...

but i also agree what nimbles said.

Quote:chokey are you sure than only one thread is enough for all of your work ?

i also think that one thread don't gonna be enought

hi !

the skin is really fantastic, but i´d like to change the background picture.

i used old versions of xbmc & skin, where i could replace the default background image with an additional file "background.png".

this doesn´t work in the new versions of xbmc and the pm skin.

can someone help me and tell me how to replace the background image ? and by the way, no i don´t have xbmctex or any tools the extract the textures.xpr.

thanx & great work !
