Looks great. Downloaded and removed old skin folder to make room for the new one. Then I almost stroked out :shocked:because I spent all day yesterday getting my games extrafanart and extrathumbs organized. Thank god there is a trash bin in Ubuntu!Laugh

It looks great. I'll have to play around w/ the game trailers. It looks like it only utilizes locally saved files. Is there a way to do this with the trailers saved to a smb or windows share? Or better yet Streaming them? Would a .txt/.xml/.nfo file with a url work?

I'll PM you guys w/ some other thoughts.

Yes i know we need to handle all the games stuff in a different way. The idea is to let choose path for extrathumbs, extrafanart and trailers. I've noticed some bugs as i didn't realise that malexx adjusted some allignments in rightlist view. Malexx is working hard to get his own repo, when's done things will be easier to update.
About trailer in launcher, i wrote a little readme inside extras folder.

Would it be possible to add a an option for videos to default to files mode instead of library. I believe it's used in transparency!. Thanks.

Just downloaded. Still 8 playlists allowed as custom items on the home menu though. Not that I'm complaining, but I sure would appreciate it if you could tell me how (if) I can increase this. Smile

Malexx, any chance you can help me extend the number of playlists allowed on the home menu? I've been having a play around with some of the xml files but nothing I've done has had any effect. Sad

Personally I could do with 12 at the moment. The "libraries" I'd like to separate on the home menu are:

Movies
Kids Movies
Christmas Movies
TV
Kids TV
Documentaries
Music Shows
Concerts
Stage Shows
Stand-up
Rugby
Home Movies

ATTENTION

This is important for people using the Features of the Advnaced Launcher!!!!

Since we do our updates over the repo we had to do a layout change.

Please backup ALL your Game Stuff in /extras/Games.

These Pathno longer has a function.

In the next Update you have to place the extrathumbs and fanart folders in the root of your installed game.

A detailed Howto will be included in the Readme.

For now you just have to backup your Gamestuff,otherwise it will be overwritten.
