Lately I've been getting into some modding on XBMC skins, which although no programming experience at all, is a lot of fun for me. It gives me the option to adjust skins to my personal preferences.

The last few months Cirrus has been my default skin, because it is very fast, slick and functional on my Asrock ION. Then I came across Simplicity which pointed me towards some nice-to-haves, like the tv-guide and some great views. This skin was also very smooth on my Asrock.

So I decided to see if I could mix my preferences in one mashup skin, with simplicity being the base code (although there already are quite a few differences). I still have a lot of tweaking to do, before i can put up I download. Nevertheless I wanted to share some screenshots to see if some other people would warm up for this skin. Suggestions ofcourse are very welcome!

Credits and thanks for this mod of course go to:

Igotdvds - Simplicity XBMC skin
Crookas - Cirrus XBMC skin
Arcanthur - Fusion XBMC skin
Omardude - Background image

And ofcourse everyone else contributing to the XBMC community with scripting and skinning!

I have put a beta download up for testing purposes:
download!



Let's start with a screenshot from the homescreen (more will follow):

Hey guys, I have put up a beta download for testing purposes, conveniently called Simplicity Mashup. Still have some tweaking to do, but I think it should still make a decent build thusfar. Let me know what you think and enjoy.

Download!

To-do's:
- adding rightlist view (similar to the Cirrus rightside view)
- expanding skin settings, so some stuff can be turned on and off
- syncing with new simplicity stuff (like new views)
- expanding pause osd with info (like info osd)

Nice mod, I really like it. One thing I would like is to have the pause OSD made up of the same elements as the info OSD (for videos). I never understood why pause would bring up such minimal info, I find I usually pause and then press info to bring up the details.
