Temporary Fixes for Older XBMC Builds
#1
If you can't update your build of XBMC (or are running PLEX) then the following changes should (hopefully) allow you to use the skin properly:

In Includes.xml remove the following line:
Code:
<include file="IncludesImages.xml" />

This will get rid of the 'cloud' of images on the right hand side of list views and info dialogs.

To fix the lack of backgrounds on the Home screen, remove the following lines from near the top of Home.xml:

Code:
<control type="multiimage">
      <description>Background image</description>
      <imagepath background="true">$INFO[Container(300).ListItem.Icon]</imagepath>
      <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
    </control>

and replace them with these lines:

Code:
<include>BaseBackground</include>

    <control type="group">
      <visible>![Container(300).OnNext | Container(300).OnPrevious]</visible>
      <include>HomeBGFade</include>

      <control type="multiimage">
        <description>Movies BG</description>
        <info>Skin.String(CustomMoviesBGFolder)</info>
        <visible>Container(300).HasFocus(9)</visible>
        <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
      </control>

      <control type="multiimage">
        <description>TV Shows BG</description>
        <info>Skin.String(CustomTVShowsBGFolder)</info>
        <visible>Container(300).HasFocus(8)</visible>
        <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
      </control>

      <control type="multiimage">
        <description>Videos BG</description>
        <info>Skin.String(CustomVideosBGFolder)</info>
        <visible>Container(300).HasFocus(1)</visible>
        <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
      </control>

      <control type="multiimage">
        <description>Music BG</description>
        <info>Skin.String(CustomMusicBGFolder)</info>
        <visible>Container(300).HasFocus(2)</visible>
        <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
      </control>

      <control type="multiimage">
        <description>System BG</description>
        <info>Skin.String(CustomSystemBGFolder)</info>
        <visible>Container(300).HasFocus(6)</visible>
        <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
      </control>

      <control type="multiimage">
        <description>Power BG</description>
        <info>Skin.String(CustomPowerBGFolder)</info>
        <visible>Container(300).HasFocus(7)</visible>
        <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
      </control>

      <control type="multiimage">
        <description>Programs BG</description>
        <info>Skin.String(CustomProgramsBGFolder)</info>
        <visible>Container(300).HasFocus(4)</visible>
        <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
      </control>

      <control type="multiimage">
        <description>Pictures BG</description>
        <info>Skin.String(CustomPicturesBGFolder)</info>
        <visible>Container(300).HasFocus(3)</visible>
        <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
      </control>

      <control type="multiimage">
        <description>Weather BG</description>
        <imagepath>$INFO[Skin.String(CustomWeatherBGFolder)]$INFO[Weather.FanartCode]</imagepath>
        <visible>Container(300).HasFocus(5)</visible>
        <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
      </control>

      <control type="multiimage">
        <description>DVD BG</description>
        <info>Skin.String(CustomDVDBGFolder)</info>
        <visible>Container(300).HasFocus(10)</visible>
        <include>HomeBackgroundImage</include>
      </control>
    </control>

I haven't tested it but I think that should get it working.

Good luck and let me know if you have any other issues.

Working great here. I'd gladly update to SVN, but the wife (and kids) acceptance factor would drop dramatically with the crashes and so on.

Thanks a lot.
