Will be released Sunday November 14th

Was nice working in quiet on it, Just add some scrollbars and little minor things need done.

I wanted a cool, fast cutting trailer so I'll throw some pics up after work so you can get a better sense of it...

I can't wait.. Night is my "Go To" skin but this looks nice, I showed my wife and she said "But I like the one we have now" LOL

this might be new new "go to" skin I like how fanart is displayed in full with no poster or cd covers blocking part of it.

as always very creative work from you Smile

Like the way u use screen realestate and not crowding it to much. Didn't like the
homescreen bars tough but can't expect to please everyone Wink

Definitly gonna try this one out.

Some of these youtoube skin previews are a little "over the top", hey almost would bellive it's trailers for movies Wink

I got inspiration from this image from like a lifehacker article or something and branched out from there. I wanted a skin that a unified feel, unified look thoughout all views. The top fanart half is the "parent" section, and the bottom "child" section is the navigation section...

Skin has all the fun stuff:
1. extrafanart
2. Custom Home (10)
3. Logos, clearart, cdART
4. TvTunes
5. One click trailers

HOME

Episode View

Grid Episodes

Same Look thoughout skin

This is 16x9 fanart, I chopped the bottom 20% to give it that movie widescreen ratio. Really makes the fanart 'pop' at that ratio.

cheers Tongue
its in development i know that but it says it has
extrafanart
logo's
clearview

so why is it a dumb question if he intends to include media and or studio flags. kinda rude tbh and uncalled for.

a simple yes or no or dont know yet would have done.

What a wonderful addition to the xbmc skin collection! I love the unified look, makes the whole thing easier to use and understand.

If you're not taking suggestions/critique yet then forget this next paragraph:
Might just be because its not fully done yet, but the xbmc logo looks a little streched and a bit cramped in its current spot. Secondly I'm not too sure about the top most black bar, maybe put the information from there in the clock/logo-bar?
