Great Work Ronie, a few Suggestions/corrections
#1
Hello Ronie,

first of all thankyou for the great work !

Ronie, as I use the SVN version of your skin , I noticed that while using Bold Fonts, the Label/Messages Allingment/Positioning in meny menues (for ex. Wheather forecast, Settings, etc.) is not correct, either values are overlaping Labels, or Values get truncated, or are misspositioned.
I fixed a lot of them, but the problem is that with each new SVN Version I use, I have to redo all again.

Futher I would like to suggest the following :

1) to make the Path to the Contitional Weather Pictures configurable (Like in the Neon Skin), I use hunderds of own Pictures for that and after a new Skin Update the changes are gone...

2) In the Settings Menue, the Focused (Selected) Item is imho not really obvious from a certain distance,
would it be posible to change the following (or perhaps make it configurable)?: <focusedcolor>red</focusedcolor>

Thankyou and kindest regards,

there's only so much room for text on labels, so i'm not sure if there's anything i can do about it....
but if you post some screenshots i will see what can be done.

as far as i know they are configurable:
Skin Settings > Backgrounds > Weather > Conditional > Options > Path

but i guess you're referring to the weather backdrops on the home screen ?

not sure what's different in settings compared to the rest of the skin,
i'm using the same way all over the skin.
maybe you can play around with the 'I hate T!' settings and decrease the overall transparency level with 100%.
this should make the focused item 'stand out' a bit more.

Hello Ronie,

thankyou for your Answer.

1) following the Links to the Uncorrected/Corrected Weather Forecast Screenshots:

http://www.grsnet.net/xbmc/Weather_corrected.png
and the code:
http://www.grsnet.net/xbmc/Includes_Weather.xml

2) Yes, i was reffering to the HomeWeather Backdrops, can you make the Path configurable, like in :
Skin Settings > Backgrounds > Weather > Conditional > Options > Path

3) following a Screenshot of what I mean with the SettingsItem Highlighting, its is much easyer to see what is Selected imho.

Ahh you removed the nice sunshine images from the code.
I got it to work with mine but then again I can't remember what I
did.. I believe I went into the code and redirected the image directory
to another because after an update my images in the default folder
got deleted and I had a heck of a time getting all the images again.

Hello,
well I didn't removed the Animated Icons, it's just that the Path has changed, cause the code I uploaded is from SVN 569....
If you correct the Paths the Images will be visible again.

1) should be fixed in svn now.
2) will add it to my todo list
3) don't think a red font color will go with the overall skin design.
