With the first release for Jarvis, SexyCirrus development has moved to the following thread: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=272285
This thread is now closed.
Work still continues on the series with more views, more options, and more smooth transitions and animations. Screens can be seen here: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=...pid2214442
The preview edition is still available from the link in the update post directly below.
A preview release of SexyCirrus Expanded 3.3.X is now available to be downloaded. Please read the post here: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=...id2148203. This will be the final posting of binaries on this thread, the full SexyCirrus Expanded 3.3.X will be posted
Above is a tiny update to the ViewsGamesBigTitan view to make it compliant with Kodi 14.2 and correct the alignment issues with the labels plus fix the search activator. This will be the last update in any form for the WIP release as these were initially developed for Cirrus Extended 3.1.2 / XBMC 13.2 and focus shifted solely toward clean rewrites and new viewtypes for Kodi using the current Helix build of Cirrus shortly after the initial WIP posting. The release of which, is still coming.
** Antiquated Original WIP Release for Cirrus Extended 3.1.X / XBMC 12.X Frodo / XBMC 13.X Gotham **
NOTE: Information and screenshots in the following post are for the original WIP release ONLY.
SexyCirrus Expanded - WIP version 09/12/2014 + KODI FIX for ViewGamesBigTitan
ViewsGamesBigTitan - KODI FIX <-- For KODI Only! (Not for XBMC)
Unzip the contents of the archive to your skin.cirrus.extended directory (usually located C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\skin.cirrus.extended\ on Windows based machines). You may be prompted to overwrite various elements.
10 new views that don't interfere with the pre-existing ones!
These are Mini Poster, Mini Square, Mini Wide, Wall Poster, Wall Square, Wall Wide, Big Poster, Big Slim, Big Square, and Big Titan. It also includes a modified includes.xml, myprograms.xml, and strings.po (English only) and in order for the skin to recognise these new views, these three files must be overwritten.
Keep in mind this is not an officially endorsed item by the Cirrus Extended team and if your XBMC install is setup to automatically update then any proper releases from the Cirrus Extended team will overwrite your current SexyCirrus install and the views will no longer work. Furthermore, the views are using IDs which are currently left vacant by Cirrus Extended at the moment and this could change at anytime.
Most things as they should. This has been made using Cirrus Extended 3.1.1 and 3.1.2 and thusly is confirmed to work with these versions.
There are a few new views of much greater complexity being worked on as well as many sub-options to augment the viewtypes and allow for far more versatility which will be selectable from the slideout menu. The information window (typically accessed by pressing down) is being expanded to accomodate the relevant types of box art for the associated view (currently in Cirrus' default state they all show posters only). The current set of viewtypes will be expanded to also cater for other types of box art, particularly 7th and 8th generation consoles which have the Blu-Ray / stubby DVD case style type.
Enjoy and please feel free to let me know you thoughts. But please keep it constructive.
BIG THANKS to the XBMC and Cirrus Extended teams. None of this would have been done without your amazing work.
