Hi everybody, I'm already sorry in advance if this has already been covered or discussed somewhere but if it did I'm unable to find it nowhere on the forum,

I would like to center the flags,

Does anybody have a clue what I can fix and/or modify please ? Thank you in advance

You want to be looking at the Includes_MediaFlags.xml.

Hi Hitcher, thanks already, I took a wide look, either I'm ignorant either I can't see any specific entry which specifies that they should be aligned to the right, expect perhaps with absolute positioning values.

It looks to me that this xml file has only instructions on how to construct the flags themselves but that another file calls the include with the alignment setting, or perhaps I should add something... I'm kind of lost my bad Sad

come on man if the person that took the skin and complete it told you is there, well is there. take a good look at the xml you would not find the specific posx and posy with every flag construct because they are in group like in <!-- Subtitle Panel ->, <!-- Language Panel -->,<!-- Year Panel -->,<!-- Rating Panel -->,<!-- Video Panel --> and <!-- Studio Panel -->

posx - left and right

I think this control all the groups
Code:
<include name="PosterMediaFlags">
        <control type="group">
            <include>Animation_SlideUpFadeOut</include>
            <include>Animation_HiddenByInfo</include>
            <posx>494</posx>
            <posy>632</posy>
            <width>418</width>
........excerpt

Thank you reaven you are completely right, and I never doubted Hitcher's knowledge (I known he's the person who put together Alaska), I only doubted again my own knowledge. I am still new with skins & XML and will try to improve my knowledge.

Two thumbs up nevertheless and thanks again Smile

Here is the correct values that works for me to center the flags (if it may helps others, 1080p)

Code:
            <posx>131</posx>
            <posy>633</posy>

Here is a sshot of the result (still working on the layout never mind the bugs)
