i'd like to thank chokemaniac for all his advise during the build of this skin. i'd also like to thank chaninja for a few of the icons. thanks guys...

updates will be available soon. i just need to come up with a good way of providing them to you all. dedicated site would be great, i'll see what i can do.

known bugs in current release:

1. system info - doesn't work

i spotted this 5 mins after uploading release lol... oh well...
(quick fix: copy settingssysteminfo.xml from skin\project mayhem\pal16x9 into skin\project helix\pal16x9) - i'm sure chokemaniac won't mind.

2. that's about it (i hope)...

i hope you all enjoy this skin,

foxtc.

thanks for the feedback so far guys! :thumbsup:

i will be launching a site for the skin soon and will post a new version with all these issues fixed.

i might need to contact some of you to help me reproduce some of these issues... i'm quite new to xbmc and i obviously haven't covered all the functionality yet.

thanks again...

hi,

very nice skin. i have release101.

i had to delete the ntsc folder so it would scale properly.

i have a ntsc 4x3 tv.

one suggestion, you might want to add your skin name to your downloads filename. Smile

thanks,

edit: i'm using xbmc cvs jan 7, 2005.

For python coding questions first see http://mirrors.xbmc.org/docs/python-docs/
