Is this the new skin you mentioned that you were working on when you released "Final" version of Alaska Revisited or is that still to come?

No that's on-hold for now, I'm working on something else.

Hitcher,

Let me add my thanks to the many already posted. Your skin has given me itchy fingers and set my mind off wandering to maybe have another go, and maybe this time even finish a skin.

Thank you for taking the time to release this skin. Finally gave me a reason to create a skin for the family. Surprisingly it even got grandma approval.

Hitch, one suggestion if you don't mind:

<viewtype label="535">list</viewtype> instead of hardwired one in View_50_List.xml, so it can be localized.

My skins:

Amber
Quartz

Done.

Also added a txt file that contains a list of all the XMLs for use as a checklist.

Here's a suggestion for MyPic.xml


PHP Code:
<control type="button" id="6" description="Slideshow">
                            <
width>300</width>
                            <
align>left</align>
                            <
label>108</label>
                            <
texturenofocus>-</texturenofocus>
                            <
disabledcolor>Grey</disabledcolor>
                            <
enable>!ListItem.IsFolder</enable>
                        </
control>
            
                        <
control type="button" id="7" description="Recursive slideshow">
                            <
width>300</width>
                            <
align>left</align>
                            <
label>13318</label>
                            <
texturenofocus>-</texturenofocus>
                            <
enable>ListItem.IsFolder</enable>
                            <
disabledcolor>Grey</disabledcolor>
                        </
control

My skins:

So I installed your repo and downloaded and installed your skin and it works great but I don't see it under my addons folder. Am I missing something? Where are the XML files for editing?

It's found in your userdata/addons folder not the XBMC one.
