Well I say it's perfect, there's just one little bug I seem to have...
When trying to add a custom script/plugin to the home screen it asks where the file is, I can browse to the correct folders but it doesn't show any filenames - only lists folders. Unfortunately this means I can't select the file to launch. Does anyone know of a fix for this? Sorry if this has been posted before - I did check through about 30 pages but couldn't find anything so gave up.
If nobody knows of a fix maybe someone could point me in the right direction of hardcoding it? All I want is to have an "Update Addons" option on the homepage which links to "addons4xbox installer" (found in programs>plugins). Trying to get my parents xbox setup as user friendly as possible, at the moment I have to try and talk the old folkes through it over the phone... not easy! Thanks in advance.
First of all plugins are different to scripts, the skin is setup to allow custom scripts, not plugins. It is possible to also allow plugins to run from the home menu via the custom script mechanism that I have provided, but I don't use this and I would need someone to provide feedback on if it was working properly.
But, there was also something else that you mentioned in your post that I would like to follow up. You mention that you see folders but no files. Have you drilled all the way down into the required folder. You should if you have a script called foo go into the foo folder and then see a default.py file. This is the file you need to select to have the custom script attached to the button on the home page (called foo as in the previous example).
Let me know what you see from the above points ,and I might be able to help. Failing that you could try over at the xbmc4xbox forums. There is a guy over there (xbs) who seems to be the main person converting xbmc skins to run on the xbox.
When postings problems, please provide build and system details.
If required a FULL debug log can now be submitted from the skin in settings->appearance->skin->settings->support.
