Rainbow  [WIP] Avalon
Post: #1
Avalon a skin from MediaPortal

A project from reazorFX and wileecoyote

Original description of Avalon:
The team that brought you "Maya" is proud to annouce a brand new skin called Avalon!
We have been designing and developing for about one year on a 1920x1080 skin that will offer a clean
and simple layout without compromising the ever growing need for information at a glance.
You will have the choice between several layouts to suit your needs. All configurable from within MP.
(A special thanks to the StreamedMP Team for sharing their code and inspiration)
As you all know from "Maya" we hold on to the concept of making all screens as consistent as possible
for a better user interface experience. (should also enhance the WAF)

ToDo:
-PVR support
-Personalize the widget aera (sort and place)
-Ability to have Music directly go to Playlists.
-Custom menus (go to specific addon or path)
-More views
-Font with accent's
-Audio track LED
-Homemenu fanart whit the new movies like in Nox


Thanks to:
- Many thanks to the XBMC-Nerds: mad-max, don and all the other great guys from xbmc-nerds.
- joostzilla and Team Mediaportal for the great Skin!
- Hitcher for Foundation and Repo support
- Shinu for support, suggestion, ideas, icon and fanart
- vicmanpergar for Spanish translation
- sling for Dutch translation
- ElPolo for French translation
- donabi for Qlock2

this should be a problem when I porting the skin? Know the makers of the mediastream or focus their skins to Media Portal port? There are any copyright problems?

So this was the author of Avalon!
I'll wait what this says about the porting before I go on.

I hope this is not a problem for the guys of mediaportal..

I was just teasing a bit Smile We dont have any problem with your port.
XBMC skins have been ported to MediaPortal so often i am glad it happens the other way around for once Smile

Skinning engine is similar mediaportal is Frodo's work when mediaportal started Frodo used xbmc and built on top of that a lot has changed since but its easy to pick up.

Also see the new skin they are working on called Titan its based around Avalon looks fantastic i actually use Avalon

Titan mediaportal skin

Great news! Big Grin I thought when I read gnu on the Mediaportal-Side. And Hitcher it also say. Wink

I think that is just great to have AVALON on XBMC.

Then I can continue. Notepad on and go.
