Looks great, is there an option for a horizontal homescreen?

Also is this for Dharma or Eden?

If I've been helpful, add a reputation point.

Horizontal homescreen can be selected as all the homescreens availables in alaska.

Horizontal homescreen is modified:

menu is not in the middle of the screen but at the bottom, I added text shadows (texts can be seen with all fanarts if you choose multipictures)

I also added media statistics on homescreen, you can know now how many movies you have and how many are unwatched (same thing for tvshow and music).

My mod is based on Hitcher's Alaska 3.0.10. So it works great on xbmc nightlies (pre-eden) but I think it will not work correctly on dharma.

You might want to put it as one file, I had to download HJSplit just to get the files to work, also the menu is in French.

Apart from that lovely work!

I know, but these two files where uploaded on xbmc passion web site and I didn't upload a single file version. If you have 7zip, you can extract the files.

About french version, I forgot to change, I will do it soon, I have to look in all modified xml to make the changes...

This is the most beautiful Alaska mod I've seen! But I too am stymied by the two files needing to be joined together and the lack of an English version.

I'd love to give it a shot though. Love the first color combination, in particular!

Thank you very much.

Hitcher is the person to congratulate, I've just mod his skin because I wanted some features.

Here is the link to my mod:

-1 file archive
-English translation
-French translation

Follow installtion notes above

I am looking for new changes: home menu multipicture. I wish to add this mod to my skin home default.

Thanks so much for the unified file!

It's not displaying correctly on the latest nightly build, though (the menu's font doesn't show as orange) - which build are you using to make it show up so beautifully?

Can you tell me more about this ? I don't know where is there orange. Maybe you choose quantic colors ? I prefer black and white of default theme.

I can't tell you know the build number, I just know that I installed a new build a few days ago.

I did some changes in weather menu (location can not be seen) I will release a new correction soon. I just want to try multipicture mod, if it take too much time, there will be only weather changes.
