How about something a little different here.

I really love keyboard UI in this theme. Makes this theme a great option for tablets or other touch devices. Even on my non-touch PC and TV, it still looks great. But one thing I really can't stand, is the ABCD layout. So, rather than settle with it, or worse yet, complain about it - I did something constructive instead! I modded the keyboard into a good old QWERTY layout!

Unfortunately, the symbols got a bit messed up, but there's nothing I could do about it since the symbols are hard-binded to their corresponding keys. At least that's the impression I get, unless I'm overlooking something? If so, which file? I can try to fix it if possible.

In any case, if you wish this theme had QWERTY, wish no more.

@jurialmunkey, if you wish to include this as a selectable keyboard layout in the next version (if that's even possible), feel free.

Tested with Eminence v1.0.9

A little background on my Teal-Orange-Black theme. A while ago I read about the ubiquitousness of the colors teal and orange in the motion pictures. After I made my theme it came as no surprise that after fiddling with the settings, the theme fit in like a glove. Every movie or series poster has at least on of these colors and if not then the color black, It works really well (I mean the colors, the theme still needs some testing)!

Nice work. I had been meaning to change the layout, but with Helix there are considerable changes to the keyboard which makes it possible to actually switch the layout based on user settings so I have been holding off until then.

Hi,

After the last changes in Eminence 1.0.11 it is almost impossible to see the side label in my White or Light color scheme.
That is because the side label is now using color name "PosterBorder" which is used for a lot of other things also.
So i decided to change the color name "PosterBorder" from RGB color '9f9f9f' to 'ffffff'.
That was the best i could do but it will not be the same as before and no longer fits my aim with dark texts on light background.

Regards

Jorgen

Yes I also found the same, had to darken quite a few things again for legibility against the White background.

Everything is a compromise !

Have you tried these ?

1. Select Skin > Theme > Glass
2. Another option you may like to consider is Fanart fading into the background. Least = show more Fanart.

Settings > Skin Settings > Fanart > Fanart fade amount > least

Yeah, that's actually my current settings. The fanart colors still look gray though and I want it to pop more.

Ok try this Combo called Transparent Plus...


1. Select Skin > Theme > Glass
( Kodi/Helix users will have to copy the Glass.xbt textures file from the Gotham folder - XBMC/addons/skin.eminence/media to Kodi/addons/skin.eminence/media )

2. Settings > Skin Settings > Fanart > Fanart fade amount > least (= show more Fanart.)

3. Please tick this as well: Settings > Appearance > Skin > Settings > Home screen > use theme color for focused tiles > tick

4. You may also like to try the option "Alt Style" which removes the remaining viewable glass. This option is shown by clicking or pushing in the right direction on the keyboard/remote when viewing in Library mode.

Highlight and Keyboard colors are changed via the specific text below:

All sorts of color codes here (replace last six digits in code below)

@wrxtasy
Thanks! Judging by the screenshots, it looks like the thing I've been looking for! I'm looking forward to setting up your code tomorrow. Smile

Cheers.
I've always been a fan of Glass panels and showing lots if Fanart.
Jurialmunkey's Eminence Skin had me hooked when I first saw the alternating Fanart in the background of the Home Screen.

Its been fun to contribute. Big Grin
