Question  Help with some adjustments?
Post: #1
Would someone be so kind to point me to WHERE in the code I can make adjustments?

Sorry - I am brand-new to xbmc skins. I can read the wiki and the docs on editing the files and I don't mind playing around until I get it the way I want... I just can't find out WHERE the code is.

Thanks in advance.

I want to do two things:
1) Adjust the time of the 'auto-transition' from view "A" to "B" - it goes a bit quick for me
2) Adjust the location, size, and content of the PLOT area of view "B" (yes, I realize there's probably a diffuse graphic that also might have to be adjusted...)

Hi DigitalAuto

Okay you need to edit the includes.xml file located in the PAL folder.

Search for <include name="MovieInfo"> at line 1126

Beneath that line are a series of "largeimage" and "image" controls moving down to eventually a "group" control at line 1236.

If you want to delay the transition change the delay="2500" to a higher number for all those controls.

Lines 1236 - 1442 deal with the Plot info box.

Hope that helps

Thanks so much. I was able to do EXACTLY what I wanted to do. Smile

Now all I have to do is the menu/icon thingies on the 'home' menu and I will have the ultimate skin.
