that's the widescreen that is not finished yet.
only 4/3 sorry.
there is a small bug in the ntsc version too, i'll fix it tomorrow sorry.
if somebody want to do it by himself, look in the ntsc folder and edit the font.xml
the first font set need to be replaced by this:
<fonts>
<fontset id="default">

<font>
<name>font34</name>
<filename>common-font34.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>font18</name>
<filename>common-font18.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>font13</name>
<filename>common-font13.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>font14</name>
<filename>common-font14.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>font64</name>
<filename>common-font64.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>matrix8</name>
<filename>matrix8.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>font04</name>
<filename>common-font14.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>font12</name>
<filename>common-font12.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>font10</name>
<filename>common-font10.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>font15</name>
<filename>common-font15.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>fontkb</name>
<filename>common-font13.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>font101</name>
<filename>common-font10.xpr</filename>
</font>

<font>
<name>timefont</name>
<filename>time-font.xpr</filename>
</font>

</fontset>

right now on allxboxskins there is the february 26 release and on xbox-skins.net the february 27.
the difference between them is the fix for the ntsc submenu.

kotix,

great skin! i have been fighting with my gf over which skin we are going to permanently use. i love yours! she however prefers project mayhem iii ce 2. we agreed to the famous "compromise." i agreed to switch to pm iii ce 2 but she must let me use your dvd, program, music, etc images and sizing (i love the cases so much!Wink.

however trying to incorporate it i have just messed everything up--i have tried several times. as it is, our compromise has turned in us using pm iii....which i am none too happy about.

any advice/help on how i can merge the two skins?

thanks and keep up the great effort!

here is an explanation how to incorporate "myprograms" dvd covers to pm3:
http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.p....3&st=15

look for xr8d post.

for other sections like music or videos you need to edit in the same way the thumbpanel in the respective xml and add the png file in pm3 media folder (folder-cd-focus, folder-dvd-focus, etc.)

i hope this help you out Smile

I use to use The Orbs and really liked how it looked, could someone tell me how I could go about making it compatible with a newer version of xbmc?
