<texture border="1">nav/barbg.png</texture> in Includes_Nav.xml ... but thats not enough, the image needs to be resized, I think width of 3 pixels should be enough.

I think 8x8 is the smallest recommended size for textures.

`Black Wrote:Some textures, e.g. the nav bar on top seem to fade out when using textures.xbt. This can be fixed by adding border="1" to the affected textures.
So does this replace <texture>nav/barbg.png</texture> or does it have to go elsewhere?

Replace. But as the textures have to be resized anyway, it's maybe not needed.

Hi aracnthur. Not sure if this has been asked before but are there any plans to add custom home items for plugins. i can access what i use now but i feel it would be better with custom items on the submenus. Nod

I would like to see the following:

  1. Party Mode button on Music Sub Menu
  2. Weather to be displayed in sub Menu
  3. Custom Menu Items
  4. Favourites Menu Item with a sub menu showing your favourites
  5. Studio Flags
  6. TV Logo Finder script in skin settings
  7. Cinema Experience
  8. Trailers Function in Movie Views
  9. Shorter delay in Plot Scrolling
  10. Wall View for Music
  11. Last.Fm Option in Music Sub Menu
  12. HD Movies Option in Submenu


This skin is now my default skins and these tweaks would make it even better.

I'll glad to see switch for music home to go directly into albums not artists, sure it can be done by mod, but if you want to put this into release what will be great.

I'll have custom home items by the time 1.0 hits. It's on my list of things to add.

  • Some of those things could be added with the addition of custom home items when I support that.
  • Studio flags will come eventually as a separate download.
  • Cinema Experience support is planned.
  • I have something planned for weather on home.

Yes please to Custom Home items..

One other thing.. as XBMC frequently is running on machines that rarely if ever get rebooted.. any chance of updating the "random episode" and "random movie" and "random music" on returning to home? or?

Arcanthur, you should also improve wall view performance because it runs very very slow even on my C2D on my notebook, but for example Rapier 4 beta runs mega fast even on ION.

And there is strange effect when using music > albums and icon view, when I press down key and next row is showing there is some jitter/jagging, I don't know how to say it, see yourself

Edit: Sorry, it should be in Bug Reports thread.
