First let me just say thanks to mcborzu for a great skin and eckstheory for providing the inspiration for my little mod. I made a sort of clone of the original Diamond theme in Media Browser.

I know this style is not strictly the same as the other views in Night but let me know what you think anyway. Night has been and will be for the foreseeable future, my skin of choice and my favorite sandbox. This is my first attempt so be gentle. Add the following download to your skin.night folder.

I do like it, one thing I always think is hard to come up with is a good idea for Poster covers. I really like those poster covers! The covers seem a little too tall vertically though, unless that was taken on a 16:10 moniter, those screen ratios always stretch things vertically...

I cannot take credit for those covers. I just tried to get as close to that Diamond theme as possible because I liked that look.

Yes to the 16:10 monitor but I don't think that I changed your original fixed list height. I do remember tweaking the Focus height and width though. I'll take another look. This is trial and error for me but I'm starting to get addicted.

ohh good one. never seen diamond so no clue how close it is. i would love to see that with maybe runtime, year and imdb rating as numbers under the title. maybe smaller covers for more fanartview and covers a bit closer maybe. what u reckon?

The runtime should be ok to do. Do you have an example of a skin or view that does the imdb rating the way you like?

I should be able to post it in the next couple of days. I am tidying up some of the code as I made a mess when I started changing things.

I just added the Download link for the MOD in the first post.

@Zwat...for now the imdb ratings are still on the movie info screen. mcborzu added a remove info button so I may include that in the views that I am playing with.

tested this on my netbook and it looks good. what do you think of moving the title a bit higher so both the title and the white line is on top of the black bar. then maybe make the black background oval so it cover the playtime. gonna try ur mod on newest xbmc and skin version and 1080p resolution to see how it looks like.

omg just had a great idea. i luv fanart and flags. the way u display the title is the best i've seen. how about just having 3 posters. center is the movie you have in focus and left is half of the poster of movie before and right is half of the poster of next movie. there is like no point in showing more the these three movies since it's not a clickable selection. what u reckon?

I placed the title for the Movie poster where it is because it is also part of the movie poster view for TV Shows. I included the space for the logo in place of the title. I have been thinking of another view for TV Shows but I have not come up with an alternative yet.

I just played around with it and it didn't look good to me and I think that people using a poster/fanart view want to see several movies ahead. If I can fade with a gradient the outer two movies on either side that might look interesting. Wink
