Would love to do some custom themes for this one, do you accept that ?


Boxhead.

Not really excepting anything at the moment (themes, language files, etc) because they are probably all bound to change and break before I make a version for the addon repo.

That being said I'm happy if people want to do them now for personal use and keep updating them so when the official "DONE" version is out they can quickly pass them on to me. I just don't want them yet Wink

Guys, adding the skins on the repo as a separate addon is a nice thought.The size of several skins would be reduced to a considerable extent. Hope this idea of Sharpe is discussed by one and all and a decision is taken by the XBMC team. I will be looking forward to this proposition with great interest. Keep up the good work..and stay cool....

Ok Jezz im back on topic Wink

Have a few questions... :
1.
been playing around with your skin and have a question, i know you're not finished but wanted to ask anyhow.

Have a few questions... :
On the homescreen, the black box which stands above the image scroller..... with sub items in it. In my mind it doesent "blend" in with the rest of the skin and seems to be more in line with the confluence style. For me that was one of the design elements that screamed back at me Smile

Maybe im just weired but wanted to know your take on it....

2.
The large dark bottom panel when in settings, more or less same thing here, this is only minor but anyhow... seems a bit to confluence again.

3.
When inside any of the settings submenus or in videos you have the same black panel for showing menutext. Still bellive that could be tweakend some more. Same goes for the selected item blue square...

4.
The Black and White colors looks perfect on my laptop screen. However on my 42 inch LCD the black is to black and the white is to white. Okay maybe i could tweak my settings on the TV but i use those settings for movies. Maybe a little less black and white ?

Hope it's okay to give my 1cent on the desgins Jezz, dont get me wrong i absolutely love the overall look for this skin !!

The-Boxhead I also agree with room for improvement with stuff, But I have to refer you too my feelings in this post http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=630316&postcount=4 Smile
That being said please feel free to mockup or make up with a better solutions I'm all for it

Personally I would remove the whole sub bar in home all together but these days seems everyone wants quick access to every section from home

Haven't tried it yet but from the looks I would say I could see this being the default skin to replace Confluence in future packages. Love the idea about studio flags being a separate add-on.

Only thing i'd change is the navigation on home...
Pressing left on a submenu would take you back to main menu... this would avoid going thru the whole submenu items.
On the recently added, i would make it cycle when left/right is pressed... pressing up goes back to submenu... down back to main menu.

I am loving this skin, very clean and polished, I haven't poked in the code yet but is there a way to add the shutdown timer option to the pop-up shutdown menu (press 's'). I'm probably a minority in this but I use that almost every day.

Quick question

I think you may have covered this but do you plan on having different color themes and user wallpaper?

Jezz_x :

I hope you don't mind, but i was bored and had some spare time and had a little play with a screenshot of your skin. I made a few slight/minor tweaks that i thought might look good.

Here's what i came up with. In my opinion it looks a bit cleaner/polished.
I realise you are far from finished. But just wanted to see your thoughts.

P.S
I see you're a Melbournian just like me! :-)
