No, and i don't think all the windows would be compatible.

And tnx guys Smile

Edit: I tested and it is possible, so i will add it in the next update.

judging by the screens this would make a good touchscreen skin with some modifications (back and home buttons)

I'd like to be able to support tablets. There are optional back, previous and home buttons in the left (main) menu already, you can turn them on in the skin settings. It is probably windows like SettingsCategory and VideoOSDSettings that need an extra button.
I'm not sure how well the main menu would respond to touch, because of it's sub menus, as i don't have a tablet.
Stretching to real 4:3 doesn't look that pretty though, so that depends on your screen i guess.

Sidemenu now hides if not in focus. Can be locked as visible in skin settings.
Viewtypes animated to match.

Hi, the skin looks great and I'd like to try it but I get a "Dependencies not met"-error even though I installed the latest monthly build and updated all addons. Does anyone have any idea why this happens?

Probably script.grab.fanart.
I moved it to required when it was accepted to the official repo.
Updated OP to reflect changes.

Also just uploaded some additional changes, so best to re-download.

Thanks for the reply but installing grab fanart didn't help. I even uninstalled Xbmc and tried the latest nightly but I still have the same problem.

Should be fixed now. If you get a black screen longer then a minute or so just restart.
It should start in Metroid, if not go to system -> appearance and see if you can select it.

Alternatively:
That .zip you downloaded, the folder that is in there called skin.metroid-master.
Copy that to your folder ~\XBMC\addons\
Just drop it in there with your other addons, go to system -> appearance and see if you can select it.
