I was messing around with the skins today and after I changed to one almost everything went black on my Mac expect the titles for Videos and Music and such went black. I tried to cycle through System to get back to the settings but I cannot see anything after that. I deleted the program and reinstalled it and it still just comes up like this now even though I thought I wiped everything out.

Remove ~/Library/Application Support/XBMC/skins/<the skin> or ~/Library/Application Support/XBMC/userdata/guisettings.xml

Note the path I gave you. I did not say to look inside XBMC.app.

If you've deleted the skin then it'll automatically switch back to using Confluence.

Sorry for all the questions. I did realize that I used the XBMC.app because I could not find anything else. I was in, like you said, Library>Application Support but the XBMC file wasn't there. Do you know if it could be anywhere else or anything? Sorry that I am so lost, thanks so much for the help.

Click on your home directory. Then Library. Then Application Support. Then XBMC. Then userdata etc.

You were missing the first step I suspect? Note that ~/ is shorthand for "home directory".
