UPDATED 5/5/11 DOWNLOAD LINKS REMOVED AS THIS IS NOW THE DEFAULT SKIN FOR XBMC

This is a mod of the current git master confluence skin to have a horizontal home menu (in the AEON style) instead of a vertical one and looks like this
(THIS WILL NOT WORK WITH DHARMA XBMC)

(click the images to get a 720p screenshot)

Changes in this version Include

More Recently added Items (they slide in and out depending on what has focus)

Redid all the coded flagging images to a unified style and added HD SD indicators to the list in the video library

Made the Thumbnail View a 3x5 grid instead of a 2x4 one

You will need at least XBMC compiled on Apr 19 2011 (Git:20110418-42298b8) it wont work with dharma builds

Known issue is until you have at least one add-on for each section in home going down from the main submenu will get the cursor lost on nothing. just keep pressing down or up and it will navigate past it

It looks really refreshing. It should be the default confluence, or you can add the option to select either vertical/ horizontal home menu in your next releases.

As I explained HERE

Quote:I started working on one again today (more AEON Syle) for fun no promises it will make it into main xbmc though because it will have to replace the current one they really can't live together easy and its a big change I will however release it as a mod when I finish doing it so you can play

but thats not too say if the team agrees enough it won't become the default.

Is it possible for them to live together? YES
Will it drive me crazy trying to maintain both in 1 skin? Definitely Smile

Agreed. That looks amazing. Makes me want to switch back to confluence.

Set this up last night and LOVE it.

I certainly hope the team agrees to make it the default.....

(but even if they dont, I have a copy of it now and you'd have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands....)

anyone think less (recently added) for better looking is a good trade off ? Not committed to this yet but was going to put a "More" button at either end to take you to the main recently added windows

I think the default number of movies, tv shows, albums should be kept as it is.

Jezz, one more thing, there is a large blank space between the background picture and the RSS feed. Is it going to stay as it is or you will stretch the background to the RSS feed.

Hey Jezz_x. Sorry to barge in but I was hoping to talk to you about a interface design job and can't figure out how else to contact you. I don't want to get kicked off for spamming but you can direct message me or look me up on my site http://www.perfectpixels.com.

Thanks! Jason.

Skin is great, thanks a lot.
There is one thing,
in Movie and Music Fanart view, the Fanart is covered by an ugly Info Page. As I remember, there was Option for disabling this Info Page, but I can't find it any more :-(
