Extrafanart, Tv Tunes Support, maybe movie sets addon support, extrathumb support and cd art and clearart supprt.

then a a view for music library were it showls a list as follows

Artists - title

no track number together with fanart, case imagae and cd image if available.

Your skin has become my number one and with these it will be ultimate.

I dont know if they are easy or difficult to add but i will wait for perfection to become even better

pang,

Quote:If you think of any other simple fixes that need addressing post them here and I will add to the list what I think needs done before the next release.

Your suggestions, while helpful, seem to belong in the other "Feature Requests" thread.

Arcanthur, I didn't see any other quick fixes in the "Bug List" thread other than the ones you have pointed out and modified.

Adding a 'logoff' option to the shutdown menu (alongside exit/shutdown when you press the 'power' button so that you don't need to navigate to: home screen->settings->select logoff from the submenu) would be extremely useful.

It should only require a few lines in DialogButtonMenu to add this.

Alot of the top menu (ie changing views) jump around when you change view because of the different options. Any way to make them static?

Also, in recently added for tv shows, it shows the episode number, season number in bottom right corner, but no show name anywhere.

Finally alot of the dialogs that normally close with back seem to require an escape in this skin.

Thanks for all the hard work and lot forward to it becoming even more fantastic.

EDIT: To add another one. The ability on the home screen to press up so it goes to the bottom of the sub menu list. So i can press up once on movies to get to recently added, same for tv. Rather than pressing down however many times. This is because i plan to use the go straight to titles for tv and movie when you add it.

+1 for both suggestions

This is why I made Alaska take you simply to Music [ActivateWindow(Music)] so the user can then set their own default (Albums, Artists, etc) and the next time they enter Music it will be their default choice. Much easier than lots of options when XBMC allows this anyway.

I would love to see a sleep timer button in the 'S' menu.

Also the wall view for movies seems laggy. A similar view from rapier mikoto build run really smooth.

Nice to see that you're implementing cinema experience!

I will glad if you create another option in settings to remove top bar and also put alternative black version (something like inversion of current). For my taste it is too bright and hit my eyes, that's why I remove it all.

If someone want to remove this top bar here are files, extract and replace. Based on version 0.8.5.
