Thanks to schimi2k for his continued support in enhancing this skin. He spent numerous hours testing for bugs. He also developed new textures for the skin as he discovered there were images that were
sized incorrectly and pixelated; as a result he did a complete re-design of those images. He also made numerous suggestions on how to improve the skin.

Thanks to R3N3 for implementing his mod based off of Maniac’s LiveTV mod.

Thanks to manfeed for his great Alternative layout for Music Visualization+Lyrics mod.

Thanks to twolaw for updating all language files and grammar correction to DialogSeekBar.xml

A Big Thank You to XBMCMANIA!
Quote:Our neighbors at xbmcmania are in support of having Shednox use a revised version of Phil65’s extendedinfo script which is now called moreinfo. This script no
longer uses Phil65’s API keys and will no longer conflict with Phil65’s extendedinfo script.

With the use of this new script, Shednox required some fine tuning; several files had to be modified in order to accommodate this new script. Brimstone made the
required changes to the xml files. Brimstone and schimi2k also discovered that the Youtube search strings in various screens were broken due to the revised version
of the Youtube plugin. As a result, additional xml files had to be adjusted by Brimstone.

Thanks to our friends at XBMCMANIA tocinillo and R91g for supporting the use of the moreinfo script.
Brimstone and I will be around to provide responses to issues; however, I will not be providing any further enhancements in the near future.

Would be nice if you could keep discussion about your mod in one single thread to have things bit more organized. Thx.

I would think that would be more confusing to users when they start asking questions. They would have to state which version of the mod they are referring to every time.

Visually it may be more organized, but logically it doesn't make sense to me.

@Edworld - Please let me know if you find any bugs.

Thanks,

Shedrock

people will have to seek through every single thread if they want to read up concerning problems etc. why should anyone use an old version of your mod?
There is a reason why everbody else does it the way I describe (including me). Wink

Nice Skin.

I have a little problem with the german mpaa-ratings:

The logo doesn't fit to the others:

In the Info-View it's OK:

Maybe you can put the rating-logos in the same style as the others?

Thanks for the effort on getting this out for Helix. +1 for PVR screens though or unfortunately for me personally its no goer as I use XBMC for my main TV box.

Slight error im getting when playing movies and TV shows is that when info is selected during the movie the Clear Art is displayed halfway up the right of the screen rather than at the bottom right where I assume its supposed to be.

Hopefully someone can help out with the German mpaa flags. I only did the US ones,

Fixed. Coming soon.

This was done that way because of the Plot and Cast info. However, I will make some changes for this.
