i'm just saying what i think based on my experience with xbmc. i'm more of a fanart guy, but use wallview for actors and some other stuff. i guess that view would be pointless without the name showing as maybe 10% of actors get a picture and many actors u probably can't recognize by face. what about doing the title as redd's poster mod? he have it top centered (with a line under). i think that looks awesome.

Hey how do you get logos to show up in that view?!? I can get logos to show up in Landscape view, but not in bannerpanel view. Is your setup looking for a different naming system than the way landscape is doing it or what?

But otherwise everything else looks and works the way you have shown, and congrats to making the first (as far as I know) animated XBMC skin!!!! I just can't wait to see this skin complete and all flowing together and drift further away from the original night skin.

And in poster view I would love for the top and bottom to be there and when you pause on a movie it would just add the little bit to slide on top of it. Here is a picture to get an idea..

Anyway I hope this makes sense Wink.

I didnt add in the logo option to the release yet. I was planning to add it in a couple of weeks ago but Ive kinda stalled working on this Im trying get back into now so Ill put up a new build in a couple of hours with the little Ive done since 0.12. It will include the logo option on banner veiw and a minimalist OSD for playback, pause, ff, rw ect. For the osd I did away with the screen shot and just used clearart with the shows poster as backup should clearart be absent.

Question  Looks great, just one thing....font size
Post: #72
I am enjoying searching through all the new skins that are coming along, but my one gripe above all is font size....
either it is my old eyes or bad resolution (I'm gonna go with the former, much more plausable) but if I can't read all the neat stuff that I scrape about my movies and music, next.... no matter how pretty it is...
I write this here with the intention of modifying the tiny fonts in those screenshots I see (or kinda see...)

Am I in need of glasses, or does anyone else agree?

thanks...

everything else looks amazing....this is my favourite skin..anxious to see more

Youre not wrong, I did choose to go with smaller fonts as I felt they suited the style of the skin more. I suppose I never considered other peoples eyesight when working on this. Maybe at some ponit in the future Ill find a bigger font that works. Right now getting all the textures in place is the big job. Once I finish off the basic stuff depending on how much interest there is I may put in options for different colours and font sizes.

Is this not in its own section yet someone find me a moderator Right now......
Anyway i am LOVING the way this is progressing a couple of things I thought I would share,
There is no Music Fanart I hate the viz screen (why theres never been a good one created for XBMC ill never now) Will you be adding back the Music fanart option ? (I like to have mine feeding from a Highdef Scenic folder rather then artist level fanart)
I understand why you feel the need to add Flashy buttons but i would suggest trying to stay away from them.
Esp on the settings and yes no boxs theres really no need as long as you can see its highlighted I think ALska has got the best setup for this.
I also noticed when playing a movie the paused screen is all new I like it alot Please keep up the good work.
