DO NOT DOWNLOAD AS CURRENTLY NOT COMPATIBLE WITH 0.8.7 RELEASE

Here is is, My horizontal home menu mod, It's the first thing i've attempted to do with skinning so it's probably full of bugs and poorly coded but seems to work alright for me. The mod includes the following:

-Horizontal home menu
-Accessible recently added TV and Moves (via up key on Tv Shows/Movies)
-Menu position adjustment (bottom or middle of screen)
-Accessible Now Playing (via down key on menu)
-iplayer in home menu

to Use the mod enable it under home screen settings and to use recently added enable TV and movies under Main menu settings

Looks nice, I would also prefer 2 options (one for centered and one for the bottom).

Btw: Is there a animation or transition while scrolling to left/right?

Hi,

very good work. But what about submenu options (genres, recently added, etc)? Are you planing on showing under this menu or in a new one or what?

Keep like this Tongue

PS: Dinamically spacel labels aren't possible if there's an image?

I hadn't really thought about submenus but I should be able to implement them using the horizontal menu i've got at the moment, i'll post my progress tomorrow.

Jep, very much so even. Looking for a menu that gets me where i need to go with as few clicks as possible Big Grin (so the original menu doesn't suffice :p)
