Yes indeed, thank you Stoli for doing this for us. Looks good so far!

And to Amra, thank you very much for not only the work you did on Metropolis but Big Alaska as well. Two of my favorite skins.

Life does come first.

It was just some quick hacks to get it up and running under Eden.

I invite anyone to test away but please don't start posting about 'This is broken' or 'that isn working" in the forum until Zep and I at least get it to a beta level. If you want to contribute in that manner, add to the git issue list where it is more manageable.

Thanks,

I guess downloading the git is the best way for future updates, isn't it?

Until it is added to a repository, yes.

I rarely do this, but I wanted to comment that since i found this skin a few months ago, it's been my instant favorite on both my ATV2 and my HTPC. It runs quite well on an ATV2 and I love the Movie "Files" view as it has a large list, a picture of the box, and the plot all on the same screen. I also love the Banner Poster view in TV shows. The main menu is great also.

While lots of the other great skins have great eye candy with all the different coverflow and poster type layouts, I find most of those layouts difficult to quickly find what you want to watch. As you can probably tell, i like ordered lists of things with the "pictures and info" on the side and this skin is great for that.

Big thanks to both Amra for bringing it this far and to Stoli for not letting it die. Making these skins must take a ton of time and you guys do it in your "spare" time.

No - that will get you the Dharma alpha version.

Here's a current Eden/Nightly link: Metropolis Download for Eden
