I noticed it doesn't happen with the unmodified version of the skin
I really want to fix it because it just looks like crap
here is a log launching an app that causes it with the original skin
and here is a log launching your modded version:
Sadly, the logs don't really help, since the skins code can vary. Best I can figure, the problem is somewhere in the chain of the skin and the way it perceives the empty space that is there while the add-on loads. It probably has to do with the way the viewtypes were coded, since that's substantially different between the skins. Tracking down what specifically causes it would require massive research and a lot of time, which is in high demand for me at the moment. I'll put it on my list, of course.

I have a question.. Somtimes, the text in the uppest part of the homescreen is hard to read as the color of the background/fanart image is the same as the fonts.. Here is an example:
I thought there was as option called: 'background overlay image'. But this doesn't do anything in my case.. I made a semi transparant image of something, and I would like to insert that over the current backgrounds, so that the fonts are always good to read..
Can you fix this?
Oh, and euuuh.. I do not want to be impatient.. But when can we expect an update again..?
Previously, there were several folks that complained about the overzealous darkening effect that the home screen had. For those reasons I lightened everything up some time ago. However, there's already a skin setting for these exact scenarios, it's called "Dim home". It should add a thin film that will darken the backgrounds, preventing such situations.
As far as updates go, there's an upcoming one, with some bug-fixes and a small number of minor features that folks requested over the thread. It will come round soon enough. I've got a lot of stuff that's been slowing me down. My MA has been taking away a lot of my time, then I have this PC switch-up, and I've also been trying to reproduce some of the previously mentioned bugs (with little success), and also to try to work on the vertical menu, so I'm a bit overstretched.
I've always had a list of things I wanted to add to the skin, but over the updates it's gotten smaller and smaller. The more I think about it all, the more I believe that after a point, optimisation is the way forward. That's also one of the reasons why I'm not in too great a hurry to churn out updates like I used to.
