  • Fixed recently added script error (note - this will now only work for dharma builds)

  • Added ClearArt toggle to skin settings - enables clearart on both video seekbar and videoinfo (TV Shows only)

Changelog: 21-08-2010
  • Added ability to select custom background for custom home menu items
  • Reduced transparency of recently added boxes.

Changelog: 10-08-2010

Fantastic work - looks beautiful. Congrats on the subforum!

Have a question? First try the XBMC online-manual and FAQ. Also: How to submit a debug log

First of all well done on the skin it is great as it is.

just a couple of things,

when playing music the cdart overlaps with the music info, can you make that music info is moved a bit to the right so they dont overlap

also can you add an option so that you can make the font a bit bolder like add two gradients of bold in the option screen

then i noticed that the clearart does not show in pause, can that be fixed.

and when you press i for movie info the cast button is not there, if you see big cirrus it is there , and more slick in that department, also if you press left during the movie list you can see the movie info ext, whcih is a nice addition

lastly when you view the music info can you make it with animation that the cdart is shown

thanks

This is a great looking skin, very well done mate!
Have noticed that in Music Viz. the background screen is black, it would be nice to see Random Fanart Backdrops choosen from Music Home Menu. That would be just great.
Anyway grandious skin, compliments.

Glad you like it! As for music backdrops I'll look at that for the next update - if you point me in the direction of a skin that already does that would be helpful so I can see how its done. Cheers.

Here is what i found in RAM2000's MOD for Aeon Showmix ... MusicVisualisation.xml

Code:
!--artist slideshow if fanart exist in define folder -->
    <control type="multiimage">
      <description>artist slideshow</description>
      <posx>0</posx>
      <posy>-</posy>
      <width>1980</width>
      <height>1080</height>
      <imagepath>[b]backdrops/artist_fanart/Random[/b]</imagepath>
      <timeperimage>5000</timeperimage>
      <fadetime>8000</fadetime>
      <pauseatend>4000</pauseatend>
      <randomize>true</randomize>
      <loop>yes</loop>
     <aspectratio>scale</aspectratio>  
      <visible>!Visualisation.Enabled + Player.HasAudio</visible>
    </control>
   <!-- end artist slideshow -->

I think the path could be modified, but creating a Random Folder is great, then you could put every picture you want inside ... no special naming rules.

Cheers

I'm wanting to try this out, but how do you get it to work in Dharma? I saw it has addon.xml and figured that I could just put it in the addon folder, but it doesn't show in the skins list.

You can zip the skin folder, throw it in your Home folder, and install it via the Add-Ons menu. "Install from zip" or somesuch.

Wow, this is an astonishing skin!!! Very nice work!

The only thing that keeps me from using it is, that I am using a TV card and tvheadend to stream television. In XBMC i access TV through 'Videos' and the TV stream as a separate share. The channels and the shows' titles are then simply displayed like this 'CHANNELNAME - SHOWTITLE'. This skin however overlaps the two, so they become unreadable. If there is any chance for you to fix this in the near future, I would be most grateful.

Otherwise congratulations to this piece of art and keep up with it!

You mean that you have tvcard in and through XBMC you watching TV channels?
You have Windows?
