I just learned how to make the topbar transparant the same way the bottom bar is...

I added <colordiffuse>cdffffff</colordiffuse> into

Code:
<!-- Top title bar -->
<control type="group">
    <description>top controls</description>     
    <control type="image">
        <description>Panel</description>
        <posx>0</posx>
        <posy>-630</posy>
        <height>109</height>
        <width>1280</width>
        <texture>osd/osd_back.png</texture>
        <include>Animation_CommonFade</include>
        <colordiffuse>cdffffff</colordiffuse>
    </control>

Looks nicer IMHO.

I also made the Paused and Info (I on the keyboard) screens look exactly the same.
Quote:Its kinda cool I thought, but probably wouldn't work with a lot of the art. In any case I think I'll package clearArt with the new revision of my mod if thats alright with you Reaven.

Bring it on..!
just remember to credit.

BTW could you do what you told me in the pm about switching panels
BTW I made a new thread to get season specific tvshow thumbs here
Imaginos Wrote:Hello !
I come with a little idea...
what about making seasons specific cleararts ?
The code would look like :
Code:
<control type ="image">  
    <posx>1049</posx>    
    <posy>-176</posy>    
    <width>230</width>    
    <height>184</height>
    <texture>cleararts/$INFO[VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle].season$INFO[VideoPlayer.season].png</texture>
    <aspectratio align="right" aligny="bottom">keep</aspectratio>  
    <visible>VideoPlayer.Content(episodes) + Skin.HasSetting(episodecoveronseekbar) + Skin.HasSetting(episodeclearartonseekbar)</visible>
</control>
and the file is named like this : "show_name.seasonX.png"
for example : "The simpsons.season4.png"

I'm trying to come up with a way for it to fall back if the season-specific image doesn't exisit. Here's what I have so far. It works fine for the seasons available but never fallsback.

Code:
    <control type ="image">
        <description>tv show image</description>
        <posx>1049</posx>
        <posy>-108</posy>
        <width>230</width>
        <height>115</height>
        <texture fallback="clearart/$INFO[VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle].png">clearart/$INFO[VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle].season$INFO[VideoPlayer.season].png</texture>
        <aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>
        <visible>VideoPlayer.Content(episodes) + !Skin.HasSetting(yesclearart)</visible>
    </control>

it seems a very cool idea I remember when Imaginos propose that but it seems like a hell of a project making all those season specific clearArt but ITS NOT IMPOSSIBLE.

BTW you'll need svn r21336 or up to the fallback to work

I was thinking of using it mainly for series that change drastically between seasons (Digimon, Super Sentai aka Power Rangers, etc) with completely different casts.

I'm trying with r24675, but not from SVN, would that be my problem?

I will thanks !


reaven Wrote:BTW could you do what you told me in the pm about switching panels

No not yet, I got that c-thru mod on and everything but it was working pretty buggy. I noticed that with the original viewtype multi I sent you the panel actually changes to thin for movies, it's just hard to see because there isn't much difference. Can't get it working at all for tv shows yet.

I know at first i change the alpha a little and end replacing the panel completely for one of my own.

BTW, what a pain to have two RSS to scroll at the same time.
I know its not full body but I like it so thought I would share with you all.

Tried again for this one.

Tried yet again I like this one better

my first one:

Very nice !
but 2 things :
- try to put the caracter on the right (horizontal symetry) so that he is not cut off on the left of the pictures, it's always strange at the screen
- try to make the title a little bit bigger

It will be perfect !
i read this from your site, i thought that was the good one Sad

which résolution should I make?
