No seb, i'm an IT man! Used to make my own dvd covers so had plenty of practise with photoshop! Wink

Anyway, i wouldn't give to much praise... you haven't seen my coding yet!!!

I love the look of this skin, however the gap between poster and reflection in this image is a bit large: http://i.imgur.com/AzwEZ.jpg

I know what you mean. It's the slightly transparent black backing to the posters that has caused the gap. The black backing lines up however the white outline shows more. I'll change it!

cheers

Edit:
I got question, does the icons moves or the cross?
becase in the images the TV and the Movies are at the same place of the media bar (if you can understand me...)

Ill try to make it easy:
there is sort of cross at the left which the thing you viewing placed there (at the images there is the moveis and tv shows). My question is wether the cross moving like the PS3 etc.. or the icons moving whcih mean the thing you viewig always will be at the left??

Sorry for long questing as well for my English (I am from Isreal and currently learn English =])

Good Luck.Laugh

I didnt understand what you mean ("mile better than my Israeli!!! ") ?

Actually, i should have typed 'miles better' (i did a typing mistake!)... was just a joke! Ignore me!! Laugh

Just looked at my ps3 and see what you mean. Problem with that would be the vertical bar moving will most likely get in the way of the 'now playing' window and 'recently added' window. There isn't many places i can put those windows.

Besides, i'm not sure it be a good idea to exactly copy the ps3... never know, Sony might get the hump!

Thanks

Ohhh. ok. I understood the problem.
But you can also put the logo of the current icon you viewing under the icon and instead of the big logo put the 'Now Playing'.
If you started and named the skin as XMB do it as it should be =] (moving bar and not icons )

this is example for the logo under the icons, look below the music icon..

and look at yours : http://imgur.com/cICCO.jpg
you placed the 'Movies' logo at the top left corner as result it will be blocked by the media bar (Cross)...

thanks for your patience =]
