Alaska Revised have the option , but no way for me to learn how to transfer ...Sad(

and this mood is like dream comes true !!
i used Mini media jsut for my funart , but now this is ...like im not even watching movies now , all i don is watching the great skin and fun art.

also is there a way in TV show to have in Funart option flat Baners ? its will be nice if You can put them alla way up , or all away down so the funart is almost visible in 100%.

any way thank You one more time !

I was going to mention wide icon logos might be ideal for this view, but only for the darker background colours (Orange, Night etc.).

Here are a few screenshots of a reworked Panel View (with larger more visible posters) and the optional Mixed Image Banner View previously mentioned.

I added an option to use a text only now playing notification. When that is activated then various views will utilize the formerly reserved space in the lower left of the screen by either allowing more plot text, listing the genre, number of episodes, or by showing video source & closed captioning flags for movies. That was obviously turned on for the previews.

I'm going to double check for problems tomorrow & hope to post an update either late Friday or over the weekend. I'll sign up at github & see if I can figure it out in order to post this as a fork of Alaska. I'll also still upload it to mediafire, of course.

Thanks & sure, I'll take a look at making an option to use Banners in the Fanart view today before I upload the new version. It shouldn't be too difficult.

It's been a while so I can't really remember but I think I had made it from a poster graphic I found online. It's not part of this mod though. It's just an image file that I overlay on top of a poster in PSP for a bluray movie then I use the modified jpg. Let me know if you want it & I can post it here.

After strip out thousands of glyphs I didn't need from the fonts and packing the textures into an .xpr, I've got the memory usage for this skin working on my xbox with 30mb of free ram to spare. It looks frigggin-fantastic! Thanks Amra!

Cool. It will be included with the big update I will post this weekend (maybe very late tonight). I want to test things out on my TV first by actually watching something instead of just tweaking the skin. Rolleyes

You're welcome but big thanks need to go to Hitcher for all the hard work he did (WAY more than any little tweaking I've done). Thanks again Hitcher!
