Night started as a project for myself to learn skinning but quickly evolved into a full skin. It's main features include: TV Show Logos, Bigger Episode thumbs, more realistic 3D thumbs in some views, and keeping fanart complimentary rather than the focus. Amongst other features just a skin that tries to do things differently...ENJOY!

The Devs would like us to wait one week before Repo upload so this should be available maybe next Monday - October 11th

So for this week I'm at a feature freeze. Only bugs or small changes/fixes...

Git as always is up to date. For those that don't like GIT here is a regular DOWNLOAD

Please if you notice anything let me know, I don't want something dumb like a broken subtitle button to get by me...

There's a slight glitch in the Movie Wall View, nothing major, just the watched overlay on the bottom row disappears when a film is highlighted.

This skin is many shades of awesome!!!

Also you still have a typo in the "Skin settings - Movies / TV" screen (in screenshot above too). Currently says "Use local a landcape.jpg....." should be "Use local a landscape.jpg....."

A grep for the string <label> should give you similar results.

True, it looks like I missed alot of strings but script-Rom_Collection_Browser-gameinfo.xml doesnt count, in my eyes, as it a supplemental script. And Includes_Next_Aired.xml isn't officially in Night yet, but thats just a simple 'find and replace all' to localize those....

i used notepad++ and find in files for <label> and copied the result i could spot that had hardcoded strings. i would just try to make it a general coding habit to use strings.xml for labels. makes it easier when putting the file out to the public.

So the extrafanart when enabled... Will it only use the fanart in the extrafanart folder or will it also use the fanart in the movie folder itself as well?

Asking because it I want my default fanart for a movie to be in the rotation does it also need to be in the extrafanart folder as well?

Either/or...You can have just 1 movie with extarfanart and the rest will use the default fanart.

Not sure if you already put it back, but on the previous release, the first Button (from the left) when displaying the Menu, was mapped to the Settings screen, you may want to map it back to the Subtitle Download Script

Thanks.. for clarification, for a movie that is using extrafanart... will the fanart in the movie folder itself also be used in conjunction with the fanart in the extrafanart folder?
