The final babylon releases are not new enough.

Cheers,
Jonathan

Just upgraded to the latest SVN build of 20439. Everything is working now. Thanks for the heads up.

I'll look into adding player controls (at the very least stop/pause buttons).

For those that want to keep right up to date with the development of the skin, I try to post updates to twitter whenever I make any changes so follow me on there for the latest news. (I do post everything in here eventually but it may only be when I do a release that some developments are mentioned)

Hope some can help out a total noob, it's my first time using linux. How do l upgrade to the latest svn version if i'm running live cd version from hard drive. l have looked all over the forums but can't find an easy way to do it.

By the way skunkm0nkee, your skin is fantastic, just what l was looking for.

Thanks

Fuzz

skunkm0nkee have a look to scripts there isn't a background.

Again this skin with new build is incredible, my xbox has never run so smooth.

And using all features of xbmc. Thought this was never going to happen and you did it.

thx

Thank you Big Grin

It wasn't my original intention to create a slim skin for the xbox at all. I intended to create a more minimal skin that would allow the media fanart, posters and other images to take centre stage and it just so happens that seems to work very well on the xbox (especially when compared to memory hungry, and texture intensive, skins like MediaStream and Aeon).

It works fantastically well (and very smooth with the new background stuff JM did) on my PC at home too. Still a few things I want to do with it but it's definitely getting there Nod

I found a weird bug, TV fanart doesn't show up on episodes missing cached thumbnails. If you assign a thumb the fanart will show, but only for episodes with cached thumbs.

Some pictures to show what I mean:

episode with auto generated thumb and a random TV background appears instead of current show's fanart
[Image: fanartbug1j.th.jpg]

previous screen shot assigned as episode thumbnail and the show's appropriate fanart appears
[Image: fanartbug2b.th.jpg]

Hi skunkm0nkee, the skin is truly remarkable.

It totally fits all my needs but alas i am still stuck with a CRT 4:3 TV. Please please please with sugar on top, is there any chance there could be an option to enlarge the fonts a bit (preferably the Arial fonts)?
Right now the fonts are just readable (it does train my eyes constantly...hey maybe my optometrist would approve... Smile) and i think that just a step or two in font size would do wonders.
If not then ill have to use my Uni tuition money to buy an LCD TV Wink...

thx again for all your awesome work!

Zeltak

I'll look into it.

Off the top of my head I think I just display the fanart if it exists so it could be that XBMC doesn't assign the fanart image to the episode until the episode gets a thumbnail? Will have a play about and see if I can track it down

Hehe, thanks for signing up and using your first post for that opinion. It's not one I share or I wouldn't have used the font in the first place but thanks anwyay.
