@ axmbmcuser
- just found this, and its a great skin!!!
- keep up the good work.

Would it be possible to add "visualization background: artist slideshow" as an option for music playback?
Not only does it look better than the one fanart pic when playing albums/party mode, it also acts like a screensaver for people of the olden days with plasma TVs... :>
Thanks for all the work, really like this skin and the updates
The option to "remove floor graphics" is not working on the homescreen. Also, previously when it did, removing floor graphics left a gradient at the bottom which exhibited severe banding on a plain, bright background
Hope you are enjoying the updates. Don't have that much free time atm, but managed to put out some updates for Jarvis and Krypton Skin versions.

I optimized many graphics regarding banding. It's quite impossible to avoid banding for all situations, since we're dealing with a media center, which is used with Limited RGB GUI and 8bit graphics by design (typical problems - that's why we at least have a (video playback) dithering option in Krypton now)

I don't really use or like the option "remove floor graphics". It was a user request and test. Smile
Since i get messages about ppl liking it, i kept it.
The Floor on the homescreen is intentional. Main menu items without submenu just look too empty without any floor. i may take another look!

Thanks for the feedback.
- text removed - not needed anymore -
Q: Is it possible to make the floor.png more transparant or even delete is because I want to put some text in the backgrond image at the bottom.
Next (Krypton) version will have an updated option to remove the floor.

Thanks, can I do this hardcoded myself in Jarvis?
The almost ready next skin version for Krypton has so many changes that it will take a while to backport them to the Jarvis version. Of course you may feel free to backport parts of it yourself before that. But it's not changing only one line, so there is no simple advice. Maybe it's best just to wait for the Jarvis version?
