I really like this Skin.
thanks
shuvro,

In skins setting menu navigate to "Custom Favourites" menu (or "Home Screen" if using 1.4.6 development branch of skin), you will see a setting at the top of each sub menu that will allow you to select what type of shelf icon to use.

Now just a few gotcha's, these settings will only show on the Horizontal or Icon home menu types, will not show on Vertical home menu type as it makes no sense to do so. Also you will not be able to change from "Icon" as a shelf image type if you don't have service.skin.widgets installed on your system (should be there as it is a skin requirement, but just in case it's not that is why you only see Icon).

Also just to warn people, I have relayed out some of the skins settings menus to make the layout more logical. As a result, depending on which version of the skin you are using will determine exactly where in the skin settings menus you need to look for things.

Most of all, take five minutes to take a look thru the skins Settings menus, as there are a pile of customisations available there and hopefully my descriptions of each setting should make it clear what each of them do.

shuvro,

Sorry, have been a bit ill with Man Flu (ok, I've been as sick as a parrot ), so will make this relatively short for the moment. Can't do what you ask at this time. You can select either icon, recently added or recomended content to the shelf area. This only applies to Movies, TV Shows or Music. You can add favourites to the submenu of each of these headings, but that is at the current time the limit of the customisation that you can do on the home screen (other than removing menu headings that aren't required). See the replies to your previous posts for details on how this is done. This might change in the future, but for the time being that's it.

As to your original question (before you edited it away), 1.4.6 is the current development stream if you want to try this out see the first post of this thread for details on how to install the Passion repo. Development build is available there, but be warned there might be dragons (or at least bugs), but these should only be small ones (I think).

Now back to bed to cough up a lung.

No icons are as you set them, that is in Movies, Icon just shows a Movie icon on the shelf. Recently added shows the 10 most recently added movie posters, Recomended shows 10 random movie posters and All shows Recently added and Recomended posters (so 20 posters in total). Shelf icons have nothing to do with the Custom favourites at all (and is part of the reason why the settings for shelf icons was moved to "Home Screen" menu instead of the "Custom favourites" menu). I guess there is no real reason why I can't give the option to use favourite addon icons on the Addons shelf, might investigate how much work that will involve.

Maybe you should take a look at the Gen 3 Icon style home screen. Setting is the first entry in the "Home menu" skin setting menu, as this sounds more like the sort of thing that you are chasing.

BTW, your screen grab skirted very close to breaking the XBMC forum rule about discussing pirate software (last icon is a forbidden addon in this forum). Be very careful about what you discuss here as you risk having your posts binned if the site mods think they talk about pirate software.

irish66,

Ok,

it's been a while and things appear quiet, but I have been rather busy with the skin. I have been doing a lot of work on the navigation within the skin (trying to make things more consistent and logical). One of the things that I have added is to not allow wrap in the horizontal home menu, and as a result of this I have added a "bump" sound to alert the user that they have reached the limit of navigation on their current side of the menu.

I have included a placeholder sound file until I can find something that sounds more to my liking, if anyone can point me at a source of opensource sound file for a new "bump" and "click" sound that would be greatly appreciated.

At this stage I am adding things and cleaning up code and graphics files (skin zip file at this stage should be about 2M smaller that 1.4.5). I'm not sure if the skin is any quicker, but it should have less of an impact on system resources. I will probably release the skin to the main repo when XBMC Gotham 13.2 is released, but the current development version is available via the Passion repo as listed in the first post of this thread.
