You guys do some of the sickest animations!!! Even that simple kind of circular pulse animation that you get when you press down to focus on that mini menubar is sweet.

This is great skin, but needs UNICODE(!) fonts... Devs, please don't forget about non English users.

I think he's seeking a licence to redistribute the skin as part of a Media Center bundle (hardware and software)

Depends on what licence (if any) you want to release your skin under... but most OSS allow for redistribution, so long as they also include the license.
They can usually charge for it too... i.e. It's perfectly legal to SELL XBMC even though it's open source.

i'd like to see the whole root in the left corner of the screen and not only the folder i'm using.

Hi @all,

first...this is a amazing Mod of xbox...unbelivable Big Grin (this icons are great too)

I have updated my XBMC to the newest Version and use your Skin...works perfekt.

But one question, how do i get the Cover in the "Glass Placeholder"? Confused

Best regards
AMG Design

P.S. Sorry for my bad english...Frown

P.P.S. The Cover/Vinyl in Musik is working fine.

Think I may have found a bug.

I think it's Ellipsis breaking it. but TWC Supplemental script fails to load on my computer. and locks the display of xbmc up. Music will keep playing in the background. even an entire list of music. The interface just locks up.

I am using the latest camelot release. Beta 1 i believe.

Just wanted to take the time to congratulate Team Blackbolt for this VERY slick skin. My previous favorable skins was xTV and Aeon Auriga (and I've tried most other skins out there at some time or another). Ellipsis has been a long wait, but from you first screendump of then-called EX to now - I've silently been following the progress. I must say that the result of your great effort is the best skin my custom built media center has yet tasted Smile

Your skin is great for my living room big screen since it's so clean but at the same time rich with functions.

Thanks again, this is the best Christmas gift yet Wink

Hats off to Team Blackbolt! Ellipsis looks great and it's very ease to use Big Grin

Some thoughts:
- The timecolor-background is on top of background fanart or the currently playing video. I'd rather have that stuff shown when selecting an episode and have the nifty colors when there's nothing to see (i.e. instead of the standard black background with timecolor turned off).
- Switching between shows/movies is seems to lock the GUI up for a second when fanart is enabled. Confluence seems to hide the loading time for fanart by showing it a second later, while having the GUI remain snappy at all times.
- There's no way to access the video library context menu from the dock to mark stuff as watched or update the library.
- In the video settings screen, the first 'tab' about the video library disappears when it's not active.
- From the settings screen, select profiles and press left or right. The previously selected profile 'jumps' in like when you first loaded up the profile settings screen.
- This seems so simple so it's probably me looking in the wrong place: there's no way to go back to the currently playing video? I was looking for something like a 'now playing' button in the dock and/or the main menu.
- Has been mentioned before: TV shows display a piece of a banner instead of a poster and that can be changed in the scraper settings... but it would be great if Ellipsis could use the right sized images by itself. Is that possible?

Running XBMC rev25142 (DSPlayer build) on a Asrock Ion 330HT (Atom 330/2GB/Nvidia Ion) with Windows 7. I'm only using XBMC for video playback btw.

Great work blackbolt. Looks very smooth and its just a good, easy to use, fast skin.

Im on apple tv with ther latest svn and have no problems running it.
2 problems what ive got on this machine is:

- When in "set content" you have the options bla bla and the extra settings for that scraper. When i am in that screen its impossible to go to the OK button, so it means ive cant enable/disable the scraper seetings in that panel.
- when trying to op navigation pane, error status 6.

- One thing i personally mis is a extra function to add your own menu-items.


Thanls for the hard work, it really looks great!
