UPDATE (download link at bottom updated):
--Add Views_MusicBiglist2.xml
--Fix subtitles support in VideoOSD.xml
--Added better OSD buttons (thanks to Paul)

Like everyone one else I've been looking forward to a new release of fusion and while I've been waiting I've been tweaking the old version more to my liking. I've now merged my mods with the latest (0.8.8) version of fusion. Here's a mod pack you may like to check out - main mods are the OSD and the video info screen. Fortunately the textures for the OSD are already in the skin.

In the download I've included a text file which outlines everything I've changed so you don't need to use all of my mods - you can pick and choose. Also included are backups of the original xml files. Enjoy.

Music OSD/visualization:

Video Info:

Music Albums biglist:

Home Recently Added Years + Borders/shadows:

Video OSD/seekbar/fullscreeninfo:

Complete list of mods:
  • OSD changed to similar to original design
  • Play and pause swapped (ie play shows when paused, pause shows when playing)
  • Music OSD changed to similar to original design
  • Rearranged things a bit on video info screen and included mpaa icons
  • Recently added - Add borders/shadows to RA pictures (tv, movies, music), change RA movie poster to fanart (poster too small to see)
  • Recently added - Add year to RA for all (movies, music, tv)
  • Add BigListView2 to music albums
  • Add shortcuts to "update library" on submenus, and remove a couple things I don't use
  • Add library totals to settings screen
  • Change skin settings menu 'Behaviours>music goes to artists' to 'Behaviours>music goes to albums'
  • Bugfix - Allow Back from settings screens
  • Bugfix - Problems with textures appearing in Linux - linux is case sensitive so had to change references to some textures

Very nice. I'll have a look at this once i get home. I've been happy with this skin with the exception of the osd. This will surely fix that.

Good job with the mod! Fusion will have the option for the old style OSD eventually, but this will hopefully keep those who desperately want it happy in the meantime. Wink

No bannerview and studio logos in this mod pack. But I guesss Arcanthur will include them in future, till then no complaints. It is one of the most stylished skin yet light on resources.

I like it. Unfortunately, the subtitles add-on won't work for me after installing it. The button I suppose is meant to call the script (second one from the right with the three lines) shows the info, the button with the i does nothing.

Nice! Thanks. I like the recently added, shortcuts and info screen stuff.

But I miss the extrathumb support for the info screen. If you could add this I would be very pleased Smile

Nice job Crookas am using these mods now, one thing i did notice in your help file was it stated you need the studios folder. This implies your going to add them at some point.
Is this the case? either way I still love the mod.
Many thanks Big Grin

Have just created a new set of Player Buttons from the xperience skin.
I made them purely for this mod but can be used with the original 0.8.5 or 0.8.8
Just unzip and place all files in skin.fusion/media/osd overwriting the exsisting
Textures.

Great job! Couple of questions:

Which viz are you using one the bottom picture below?

I can't seem to find the BigListView2 for music albums?

And I fixed the info-bar for watching episodes (episode thumb not longer streched): DialogFullScreenInfo.xml

I also did a couple of modifications for home screen that others might want:

  1. More recently added items (8 to be exact)
  2. Random songs instead of recently added albums
  3. More consistent featured song look
  4. Fanart instead of thumb for featured episode (doesn't always work)
  5. Changed various information in recently added items
  6. Links to some smart playlists in movies section
  7. Featured items updating every 10 minutes

If you want to fix it yourself - open VideoOSD.xml and scroll down to around line 245

CHANGE
Code:
<onclick>XBMC.RunScript($INFO[Skin.String(SubtitleScript_Path)])</onclick>
TO
Code:
<onclick>XBMC.RunScript(script.xbmc.subtitles)</onclick>

I have a fix for that as i had the same problem.

Look in VideOSD.xml and look for this line
<onclick>XBMC.RunScript($INFO[Skin.String(SubtitleScript_Path)])</onclick>

And replace with
<onclick>XBMC.RunScript(script.xbmc.subtitles)</onclick>

That sorted it for me.Smile

oops did not see crookas had replied with the same fix

Jaypeg, how did you get the recently added to say "season 1 episode 3" rather than s01e08?
