Xetasoft tries out new XBMC skin
#1
xetasoft has developed a new skin for xbmc. this skin, is the first official skin from a developer and will be upgraded continually until, xbmc is officially released.

this current skins version is a simple variant on the xbmc original skin, however in an attempt to try multiple skins the xetasoft team is hoping to help the xbmc team better develop its skin chooser.

a more intricate design is currently being developed with animations etc. stay tuned to xetasoft for more details and updates....long live xbmc.

the new skin can be downloaded at http://www.xetasoft.com/

i've been trying to get the download modules up as of late but, the download should be available regardless. thanks, any feedback is appreciated.

i have about 300 skins for download (from evoxx to mediaxmenu to all the others) if i can get it working.

also, is it illegal to allow people to download instruction manuals or cd covers? just asking before i go ahead and try to add it to the list.

i am running the xbmc.alpha.cvs.10-10-03 build.

downloaded the xetasoft skin and upacked and copied the entire folder to the skin directory on xbmc.

if i try to select the xetasoft skin the screen goes black and the xbox crashes.

i had to go into the ms dash and delete the xbmc save game settings to allow xbmc to start normally again.

not sure if its a problem of the latest build or the skin.

i think it has to do with this issue from the "bugs" forum:

Quote:also make sure that theres only 1 subdirectory in skin
called mediacenter
i've seen ppl copying the cvs folder also;-)
so if you got
skin/mediacenter
skin/cvs

then delete skin/cvs
it should not b there!

i was able to duplicate the issue on my xbox (xbmc.alpha.cvs.10-10-03 build) as well. to test the skin, i backed up my "media center" skin and then deleted it from my xbox and then renamed the xetasoft directory to "media center". it allows you to view the skin/try it out. hopefully the skin change problem is a simple bug and can be worked out in the next build.  Image

there's a bug in the xetasoft skin!
look in the xeta/ subdirectory
there's
- xml files
- a directory called fonts
- a directory called xmedia

rename the xmedia directory -> media
and then it works

there are two xml files (settingsfilter and myscripts) not working with the current build (10-10-03) of xbmc. you can download a fixed version of the xetasoft skin here.

edit: updated url to a working host



read the xbmc online-manual, faq and search the forums before posting! do not e-mail the xbmc-team asking for support!
read/follow the forum rules! note! team-xbmc never have and never will host or distribute ms-xdk binaries/executables!
