Hi Yall. im Lovin' the new default skin (props Jezz)

the thumbs view displays 8 items (4x2). this is prime for small lists (<20).
for larger lists however it would be nice to use small thumb view (6x3=18).

BEFORE >>

AFTER >>

any suggestions on how to add 3.row view (& keep 2.row as the default) ?
this will make the default biew 3.row (SOURCE: /skin/Confluence/720p/ViewsFileMode.xml )

happy holidays

I agree this would be nice for us with larger video/movie libraries.

@zosky,

thanks for the modification !! Nod Nod
That is what I needed. For a larger music collection this is a must.
Would be nice if there would be a "Small Thumbnail view" option officially in the future.

Thanks,
Marc

One thing I would like to do is to change the transparency of the black background that the video covers are on top of. I would like to be able to see the fan art a little more clearly through it.

Any pointers on where to look to make the change?

Thanks

I used this mod for a long time and loved it but have now run in to an issue since upgrading to beta 4.
Since the upgrade my confluence is back to displaying only 8 thumbnails.
I redid the mod by going to the link above and downloading the xml file and replacing the viewsfilemode.xml under c/program files/xbmc/skin/confluence/720p with the one from above.
Still, only 8 thumbnails.

What am I doing wrong?
Thanks......
