Release [beta] reFred - 1.2.0 Beta 1 released

it's ready to be shared and I need your help for bug fixes Smile

watch gallery

About the skin:
The skin was based on a dev reFocus Gotham version (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=191491) by Jeroen. I never did XBMC skinning before and had no idea what I'm doing there. All I wanted to do.. was to change the vertical home menu to horizontal but everything was gettin' out of control. The code base of reFocus was so damn clear and easy to understand that I moved on and on and on and now.... It's no reFocus anymore Smile I kept what I liked and improved it to fit the rest of the new layout, but there is still a lot of the reFocus left, which I hadn't change yet (still WIP).

To Jeroen: Thank you! I hope you won't hate me that I did so painful things to your work and castrated it Smile

Please let me know If you find layout glitches. The best way is to provide me screenshots with a detail explanation when and how the bug appears.

- Please do a local backup of your skin!
- Maybe you have to delete your guisettings.xml! (a backup won't hurt)
- Please be sure to have the latest skinshortcuts add-on installed

Change log:
Added: Positioning of home menu items
Added: Unlimited custom home menu items
Added: Overwriting backgrounds (single/multi images) for each main menu item, even if a widget is displayed (eg own artwork downloader slideshow for movies instead of the focused widget item)
Added: Custom positioning of available widgets (eg: Latest Movies can be displayed on multiple home items)
Added: Up to 10 custom widget groups
Changed: Widgets will be displayed even if the "currently playing" widget is active (only in classic home menu)
Changed: Much more userfriendly menu management for menus/custom widgets
Changed: PVR recording schedule information widget will be displayed even no recording is scheduled.
Removed: Widgets are centered by default. The option to display it in the top of the screen is removed. Was forced to it, because of animation and positioning issues with some new features and conditional situations. Sry, you have to deal with it Wink (only in classic home menu)
Removed: Widget based fanart slideshow for the menu thumbs (WMC like home menu)

From the screenshots it looks like a great mod of reFocus. Without trying to sound patronising, well done on such an excellent job.
Please read the online manual (wiki) & FAQ (wiki) before posting.

I would like to change the recently added movie fanart in the main menu to a randomized rotation. Any help?


I like the additions, keeps getting better!

How can I turn off the fanart backgrounds on movies/tv/music. I dont use fanart and would like to remove it from the background all together.

(no need to make a fix or anything, just point me towards which xml i need to edit, i cant seem to find)
Maybe I will add this functionality in the future. But currently I'll get the other things done.
You will find the parts in the includeshome.xml.

congratulation, 2 beautiful new view. I wished also added the discarts, but I was not able to add to it with! Maybe you could help me understand how. I am a beginner; and I also Mod to refocus, as I like to see
Take a look into view_leftlist.xml and search for "discart". But dont wonder, there is still a lot of garbage inside that view file.
