I doing some mods in Alaska and right now I'm stumped. What I'm trying to do is to remove the dimming affect from the movie poster view, tv shows landscape view, music wall view and settings view. Things I've tried, changing the color codes in the colors.xml file. Removing the filter and masks files from the back drops folder all of which have been unsuccessful. So any help would be appreciated.

thanks

Thanks that worked. However, I do have another question. How do I do the same to the settings wall view?

Settings.xml -

PHP Code:
        <control type="image">
            <include>
Dimensions_Fullscreen</include>
            <
texture diffuse="special://skin/backdrops/mask_settings.png">common/white.png</texture>
            <
colordiffuse>BackgroundColor</colordiffuse>
        </
control>
        <
control type="image">

            <
texture diffuse="special://skin/backdrops/mask_settings.png">special://skin/backdrops/filter.png</texture>
            
<colordiffuse>BackgroundFilterColor</colordiffuse>

I have another question. I add the movie duration to the poster view but it's acting funny. The code I'm using is listed below and and it's working but as you can see the "MIN" is showing up twice. However, (This is the funny part) after I watch the movie the duration shows up correctly. I have tried removing "MIN" from the code but it goes from showing correctly to just showing only the time "115" and no "MIN".

I hope this make since.

Thanks

Code:
<control type="label">
<posx>345</posx>
<posy>460</posy>
<width>428</width>
<height>50</height>
<aligny>center</aligny>
<font>Font_Date</font>
<textcolor>PosterTitle</textcolor>
<label>$INFO[ListItem.Duration,] min</label>
<visible>Container.Content(movies)</visible>
<include>Animation_HiddenByInfo</include>
</control>

XBMC has probably scrapped the duration previously but now when you play the file it gets the correct duration (minus the MIN label).

Yes. I'm not exactly sure what's causing it. I ended up borrowing this code from Amra's Big Alaska mod and it seems to be working now.

Code:
            <control type="label">
                <posx>345</posx>
                <posy>460</posy>
                <width>428</width>
                <height>50</height>
                <aligny>center</aligny>
                <font>Font_Date</font>
                <textcolor>PosterTitle</textcolor>
                <label>[b]$INFO[ListItem.Duration][/b]</label>
                <visible>substring(listitem.Duration,hrs)</visible>
                <visible>Container.Content(movies) + !IsEmpty(listitem.Duration)</visible>
                <include>Animation_HiddenByInfo</include>
            </control>
            <control type="label">
                <posx>345</posx>
                <posy>460</posy>
                <width>428</width>
                <height>50</height>
                <aligny>center</aligny>
                <font>Font_Date</font>
                <textcolor>PosterTitle</textcolor>
                <label>[b]$INFO[ListItem.Duration][/b]</label>
                <visible>substring(listitem.Duration,min)</visible>
                <visible>!substring(listitem.Duration,hrs)</visible>
                <visible>Container.Content(movies) + !IsEmpty(listitem.Duration)</visible>
                <include>Animation_HiddenByInfo</include>
            </control>
            <control type="label">
                <posx>345</posx>
                <posy>460</posy>
                <width>428</width>
                <height>50</height>
                <aligny>center</aligny>
                <font>Font_Date</font>
                <textcolor>PosterTitle</textcolor>
                <label>[b]$INFO[ListItem.Duration,, min][/b]</label>
                <visible>!substring(listitem.Duration,min)</visible>
                <visible>Container.Content(movies) + !IsEmpty(listitem.Duration)</visible>
                <include>Animation_HiddenByInfo</include>
            </control>
