i don't think so....

With the ability to have a custom logo... What to do.

I suppose you could use it if for multiple front ends.. XBMC-1 XBMC-2 etc.

What other imaginative ideas come to mind?

How to transfer my settings (customized menus, submenus and options) from T! 3.11.1 to T! svn 3.11.4. I get svn installed like separated skin with default settings without my menus and other custom stuff

you settings will never change when you update your skin,
they are saved outside the skin directory.

this doens't mean you may have to reconfigure a few small things,
due to me having changed some things in the skin.

I have T! 3.11 fully customized how I like and haw I want to be, there is many new folders, subfolders, manus and submenus... Nod

...after I instaled last T! svn I get it without my customization settings it has only default settings... Shocked
[INDENT][Image: screenshot001.jpg] [/INDENT]

...when I open skin menu of XBMC, T! svn 3.11.4 is instaled like new skin beside T! 3.11 and it didnt overwrite T! what I expected. Thaking that into account it just cant get my old settings...

...and when I look in XBMC user folder T!svn have separated folder beside T!3.11 ...
[INDENT][Image: 2011-02-20095147.jpg][/INDENT]

After I make backup of everything first what I tried is to copy new T!svn over old T! and of course that didnt work. I get new settings again.
I just dont want to spend hours on setup things witch I make before.

Quote:you settings are saved outside the skin directory.

Pls, where is that place? If u dont have any other solution I will try to overwrite that settings

where did you download T! svn 3.11.4?

passionxbmc.org or the T! svn on google-code?


- Zrino - 2011-02-21 12:01

Hi Ronie,
T! is by far my favorite skin, appreciate all your work and creativity. I have the 893 SVN version installed with the weather plus addon and just noticed that on the "Hourly" weather screen the times throughout the entire day are all shown as AM (i.e. even the afternoon/evening ones').

you should download the latest version of the weather.com plus addon,
it's now available through the third-party repository.googlecode.xbmc-addons repo

i believe this was a bug in previous versions of the script...

if you still have issues after the update, ask for help in the weather.com plus thread:

Hi Ronie !

From changelog i can see that under T!svn 3.11.4 we get new futures like:
Quote:- added video as background
Is that mean that I can put video fanart instead of jpeg fanart for movie?
If so where is that function in skin setup, I cant find it
When I turn on Use Video Background nothing happens. I suposse that I must insert viddeo file in movie dir?
What correctly i need to do?

it means, if you play a video, it will be used as a background everywhere in the skin.

The latest update of Cinema Experience has changed how things are handled, with a new button on the home page.

Before it was

* Click on "Movies" (your movie library is shown then)
* Search your movie in the library
* click "info"
* choose run cinema experience

--> playback starts

Now it´s like this (if you configured the skin with giftie´s files):

* Click on "Cinema" (Cinema experience starts and movie library is shown)
* search your movie in the library
* click "Q" or "0"

--> the playback starts

The skin is patched... would this break on update? Any thoughts to support? I'm wondering if I should update here... along with patches for other skins.

I'm still smarting from Weather-Plus, the update breaks my current version, so auto-updates is turned off at the moment.

stable or svn?

stable won't break as it will delete the entire skin, before installing the updated one.

svn...you may run into merge issues yes.

PatK Wrote:Any thoughts to support?

i'll have to look into it. creating a menu/submenu for it is not something i'd like to do, so i may just mod the existing movie menu button.

and that's just what i did...


edit:
the old way of starting cinema experience from the movie info dialog is back now.


Yes I'm running the SVN version. - PatK - 2011-02-22 20:05

Think I'll wait for the dust to settle.... wouldn't this invalidate the Cinema Experience logo click? Where do trailers fit into this.. a lot of questions and questionable gain. I did like how it was working (although I had my issues with triva), this new method seems less flexible and more of a hack.
