Is anyone else have problems getting both Filemanager and weather icons to work?

Nothing happens when I click...I'm using XBOX version!

Well I have made changes to the SVN to make those links the same as PM3 (should work for you) but If the ones I had didn't work then that means your XBMC is out of date even if you think its not. jmarshall added the support for the lines I used over a month ago.
I suggest you go into PM3 then check system info for the compile date of your xbe.
But basically if those buttons don't work other things will not work properly either like the media info views will be all wrong
Great skin.. I just love it!.. Running the blue media version..

It's now my default skin!

Keep up the great work..
I am liking this skin very much -- clean, elegant, simple.

Although I am experiencing some problems: XBMC locks up when I try to change to a different skin, and occasionally it will lock up when I am playing media in the background and navigate to other folders. I am using this week's T3CH release of XBMC, and not getting these lockups with other skins.

So not my default skin yet, but it's looking good.
I was looking through the keymap.xml and didn't see anything special for the mouse, how can I adjust what the mouse buttons do
i.e. Button2 = ParentDir, Button3=PreviousMenu, Button4 = Up, Button5 = Down

awesome skin It's now my default on linux.
stupid no edit button.

There are a few other things I found while playing with the skin. Could a button be added to the music and video screens to go fullscreen also for car pc use could a back/menu button be added to the skin? Also the hotspot media controls only work in the videos not the fullscreen audio.

Again awesome work.
Here is an updated version for the latest t3ch and up I recomend UP it fixed a small error in text
The Color themes have been removed and need to be updated you can now download the updated versions from in the skin (go to settings then left so the menu opens and select skin settings its the first option)

The skin is pretty much the same just a few new features for people in skin settings

2007-12-03 1047 Fixed : Invalid old image from pm3 copy and paste
2007-12-03 1046 Fixed : inbuilt theme downloader now properly deletes partially downloaded themes if you cancel half way through so you don't end up with corrupt themes in your media dir.
2007-12-03 1045 Added : border around Album and Video cover art in fullscreen media info and now playing info in non fullscreen Changed : Pictures media info view big side image to listitem.icon and added a border around it (you need a big thumb cache for this skin to look decent anyway so it should still look ok and load faster) Fixed : possible path issue in the get themes python script
2007-12-02 1044 Fixed : Movie Title in AMT list view side was too long
2007-11-20 1011 Changed : Added Command line parameter support to the build.bat file so you can script skin build with no user interaction Options are 1 and 2 1 = Xbox version 2 = Media only version. Thanks to juju2 of XBMC Skin Manager for the code (

2007-11-19 1007 Changed : Added a new .BAT file for building the skin ( BUILD_SKIN.BAT ) thanks to nuka1195. when run offers you a choice of Xbox or Media Center versions and now creates a file to add the skins revision number into systeminfo in the skin (so if you have problems I know what version you are using).
2007-11-18 1005 Updated : language/French/strings.xml so it contains the strings needed for the download theme script Smile Thanks again Modhack
2007-11-18 1004 Updated : Download theme script now uses Localization strings so should translate well Added : Updated French file by modhack big thanks

2007-11-18 1001 Updated : Basics-101 now use the new way of string localization which is the same as XBMC you will need revision 10780 or higher of XBMC for this to work. No more copying over translate.xml files to get your own custom language you just need to make a file in the language did of the skin and translate it (when XBMC changes language so does the skin if the translated file exists). I also added a test french translation. Its probably 100% wrong because I used bablefish on the net. If you have translations get in contact with me on XBMC or xbox-scene forums so I can add them to SVN Sorry linux guys you will have to wait until the next merge for it to work

2007-10-22 961 Initial Commit of the Basics-101 skin
Just added to the SVN
Quote:Revision: 1053
Author: jezz_x
Date: 7:56:54 PM, Wednesday, 5 December 2007
Changed : for want of a better word Media Info 2 view in library is now "Anamorphic" meaning that the layout of the view depends on what the content type is Movies is how it used to be TVShows are wide icons and the default is a square thumbnail useful for music videos and episodes (XBMC SVN 10911 or higher needed to work)

Changed : added a Large icon to the file browser dialog for better being able to see what is there when selecting icons and other images
Modified : /Basics-101/720p/CommonLibraryViewTypes.xml
Modified : /Basics-101/720p/FileBrowser.xml

Here are some screen shots bare in mind this is all 1 view type not 3 seperate ones

Image Image Image

And the Filebrowser


Big Big thanks to jmarshall for implimenting the ability to do it for me
Hello, forgive me is there a setting to change the background image?
