Hello Jurialmunkey! Thank you for a fantastic skin and very good support.

I want to introduce my "little" modification "Glass" by Eminence. One thing it is very important to me; The typical appearance of Eminence must always be recognizable. All I am presenting in this forum is only my suggestion, nothing more or less, just a suggestion.

Please excuse my English, it's not perfect but I try to give my best. And I hope I did not forget anything important.

The following information have helped me with these changes:

http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~webteam/readme/hexdec.html

http://www.color-hex.com/

http://redinput.com/en/colors-generator/


The following things I have changed.

1. New color scheme "Green-Orange Glass" including new color with transparency for "TopBarDark", "Head-Tile" and "Tiles".

2. New Shapes of "Tile" (4 variations for Tile.png) and "Head-Tile" (2 variations for Head-Tile.png)

3. New additional colors for "Tiles" with transparency.

4. New colors for TopBarDark with transparency in combination with the new colors of "Tiles" (see point 3).



1. New color scheme "Green-Orange Glass" (my favorite !!!) plus:

- New Tile and Head-Tile Shape (tile.png and Head-Tile.png)

- New Tile color "gray" with 15% transparency

- And new color "black" of TopBarDark with 10% transparency.


Code: color scheme "Green-Orange Glass" with 10% transparency for "TopBarDark"
Code:
<? xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
<colors>

     <- Highlight Colors ->
     <color name = "highlight"> FFA37700 </ color>
     <color name = "Posters highlight"> FF896000 </ color>
    
     <- Keyboard ->
     <color name = "Keyboard"> FF6D4C00 </ color>

     <- Main Colors ->
     <color name = "background"> ff070707 </ color>
     <color name = "TopBar"> 3e888888 </ color>
     <color name = "TopBarDark"> E5000000 </ color>
</ colors>


Code: Tile (tile.png), color: "gray", with 15% transparency, Code-Line 61 "Includes_Home.xml"
Code:
<texturenofocus border = "50" color diffuse = "26888888"> Home / tile.png </ texturenofocus>


watch gallery


Extra suggestion: Even variations for "Tile" and TopBarDark " with 15%, 20%, 25% transparency are too interesting.



2. New Shapes of "Tile" (4 variations for Tile.png) and "Head-Tile" (2 variations for Head-Tile.png)

watch gallery



Point 3 and 4 of my changes will follow soon

3. New additional colors for "Tiles" with transparency.
4. New colors for TopBarDark with transparency in combination with the new colors of "Tiles"

Hello!

This is the third point of my suggestions for Eminence.


3. New colors (Blue, Green, Orange, Red-Brown and Red) for "Tiles" (Tile.png) with 15% transparency, Code-Line 61 "Includes_Home.xml" (my favorite is Blue!)

Extra suggestion: Variants with 10%, 20% and 25% transparency are also interesting.

Code: Color "Blue"
Code:
<texturenofocus border = "50" color = diffuse "267B96CE"> Home / tile.png </ texturenofocus>

Code: Color "Green"
Code:
<texturenofocus border = "50" color = diffuse "2699B737"> Home / tile.png </ texturenofocus>

Code: Color "Orange"
Code:
<texturenofocus border = "50" color = diffuse "26FCAE4E"> Home / tile.png </ texturenofocus>

Code: Color "Red-Brown"
Code:
<texturenofocus border = "50" color = diffuse "26AD5E39"> Home / tile.png </ texturenofocus>

Code: Color "Red"
Code:
<texturenofocus border = "50" color = diffuse "26D83131"> Home / tile.png </ texturenofocus>

i kinda like the transparent Tiles. not crazy about the shape.

@jurialmunkey, is there a way to do this within the color XML files?

@orionics -- i like the suggestion of adding transparency to the Tiles.

@orionics - looks good Smile

@locomot1f - On latest git I added a new colour definition TileDefault which will change the default unfocused colour of tiles (note, only works when "use theme colour for focused tiles" is enabled).

I always wanted a slightly transparent home panel but it isn't possible because the next tile just off screen would peek an edge through the side and so there needs to be opaque pieces the same colour as the bar to mask them.

Hello!

This proposal is only for people, who like colors and colors need.Wink

The last point (point 4) of my suggestions Big Grin for the colors with transparency for the "TopBarDark". To better see the effect of each color I have chosen the same background.

The "Tiles" are gray with 15% transparency and color scheme is my unofficial "Green-Orange" (see point 1 above, my first post here).


Color "Tiles": Gray, with 15% transparency, Code-Line 61 "Includes_Home.xml"
Code:
Code:
<texturenofocus border = "50" color diffuse = "26888888"> Home / tile.png </ texturenofocus>



All colors for "TopBarDark" have 10% transparency, the codes are here:

Color: "Blue"
Code:
Code:
<color name="TopBarDark">E50b1728</color>


Color:"Green"
Code:
Code:
<color name="TopBarDark">E522280b</color>


Color: "Green-Old"
Code:
Code:
<color name="TopBarDark">E52b2200</color>


Color: "Blue-Green"
Code:
Code:
<color name="TopBarDark">E500222b</color>


Color: "Red-Brown"
Code:
Code:
<color name="TopBarDark">E5280b0b</color>


Color: "Brown"
Code:
Code:
<color name="TopBarDark">E52b1100</color>


Color: "Violet"
Code:
Code:
<color name="TopBarDark">E52B0C21</color>

i'm not getting it...
when i set that option, how then do I set the Tile Default?

nevermind.. I found it. :-)

didn't realize there was a new option in xml files.

this skin just keeps getting better and better!!!

Would be nice if it are ready to download files instead of making a mixture of different settings.

Anyone to create the correct xml files?

?uestion...

you say that:
jurialmunkey Wrote:I always wanted a slightly transparent home panel but it isn't possible because the next tile just off screen would peek an edge through the side and so there needs to be opaque pieces the same colour as the bar to mask them.

now that you have it set to center, when there are fewer tiles, are those "next tiles" even necessary?

keep answering my own questions... now i see what the peek does. it hides the tile edge...
so, i guess my next question is... is that a bad thing?

@schumi2004, yes, you're right but Jurialmunkey must analyze the proposals and decide what is right and possible.
I trusted, Jurialmunkey. Smile Thanks Jurialmunkey for your great work.

Regards for all XBMC (Kodi) and Eminence user.

The headings white and black color was too strong for my taste so i created a more softer version (including the Home screen and OSD).

I have also fixed the orders of the colors in the code the same as the default.xml.

This is using the color Teal (RGB=008080):
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<colors>
        <!-- Home Header And Panels -->
    <color name="MainLabel">FFb9b9b9</color>
    <color name="SubLabel">BFb9b9b9</color>
    <color name="MainLabel2">FF5f5f5f</color>
    <color name="SubLabel2">BF5f5f5f</color>
    <color name="OSD-NF">6Fb9b9b9</color>
    <color name="TopBar">FFe8e8e8</color>
    <color name="TopBarDark">FF181818</color>
    <color name="TopBarDarkIcon">FFb9b9b9</color>
    <color name="TopBarIcon">FF5f5f5f</color>
        <!-- Highlight Colors -->
    <color name="Highlight">FF008080</color>
    <color name="PosterHighlight">DF008080</color>
        <!-- Keyboard -->
    <color name="Keyboard">FF008080</color>
    <color name="Keyboard-BG">FFc9c9c9</color>
    <color name="Keyboard-Keys">9Ffffafa</color>
        <!-- Main Colors -->
    <color name="Background">CCffffff</color>
    <color name="Selected">FF151515</color>
    <color name="Selected2">FF2f2f2f</color>
    <color name="PosterBorder">66008080</color>
    <color name="PosterBorder-NF">66008080</color>
    <color name="PanelBG">FFe8e8e8</color>
    <color name="PanelBG2">FFe8e8e8</color>
    <color name="RadioFO">FF000000</color>
    <color name="PanelFG">FF1f1f1f</color>
    <color name="PanelFG-NF">9F1f1f1f</color>
    <color name="Disabled">3F1f1f1f</color>
</colors>

I have also tested the following colors (RGB) that works (on both versions of the White theme):

Chocolate (D2691E)
Crimson (DC143C)
Forrest Green (228B22)
Olive (808000)

I tested this white version but how come that in main menu all is back to normal? (running today's github version)

No HomeBarBG colour definition so it takes defaults.

jurialmunkey is correct, I did not want to mess around with the main menu.
The only thing i did in the main menu was to soften the header texts (it was too bright white for my taste).

If you have used the White theme i have created (see my previous posts) and want it less colorful e.g. more like the default theme then you can change the code as follows:

Code:
<color name="PosterBorder">669f9f9f</color>
<color name="PosterBorder-NF">669f9f9f</color>

This will instead give a light grey color that fits the White theme.
