Not sure but i think it's this portion of code...

Code: Select all

<control type="group">
	<visible>Container.Content(Albums) + Control.IsVisible(552)</visible>
	<control type="image">
		<posx>80</posx>
		<posy>470</posy>
		<width>266</width>
		<height>150</height>
		<texture background="true" fallback="Fanart_Fallback_Music_Small.jpg">$INFO[ListItem.Property(Fanart_Image)]</texture>
		<bordertexture border="5">white-back.png</bordertexture>
		<bordersize>2</bordersize>
		<fadetime>FanartCrossfadeTime</fadetime>
	</control>
	<control type="textbox">
		<posx>360</posx>
		<posy>510</posy>
		<width>840</width>
		<height>105</height>
		<font>font11</font>
		<textcolor>grey2</textcolor>
		<scroll>true</scroll>
		<align>justify</align>
		<label>$INFO[ListItem.Property(Album_Description)]</label>
	</control>
</control>

Iplayed around within that code, but no succes I have no idea what I'm doing.
What I want to achieve is the following.

This is the situation now:

This is what I had in mind (pay no attention to my amateuristic paint job):

There should be a review of the album there...

Anyway try this:

Code: Select all

<label>$INFO[ListItem.Artist] - $INFO[ListItem.Property(Album_Description)]</label>

I know that the review should be there, but all music scrapers are broken and Buzz is working on something else that will fix that issue.
What I meant was that instead of only the album title you should see the artist name and than the album titles next to it.

this skin is lovely and quick, i'm just not sure i'm seeing it right.. white bars everywhere? are there any more screenshots of this around? also fonts very small? (for 720p on smal screen).
has anyone made any themes for it?

hi again. love everything about this skin except the video OSD menu. just a row of square buttons, no progress bar! sometimes you get progress bar if seeking, usually not? seems buggy. if i get time might try to hack the menu bar or OSD from another skin into this.

edit: Oops! my bad, skin has nice info screen, i just wasn't seeing it with button mapping i normally use. ok i just need to change my mapping or maybe combine the details stats screen with the normal once.

apart from that, love:

- speed and low ram use
- icons for plugins etc (xTV is missing this)
- on screen display of ram and cpu helps know if box is freezing

i have most of the views disabled because like all skins i sometimes get the wrong view shown randomly which really confuses users, default List and Thumbnails are fine.

Hi, great skin, thank you ! This is my main skin right now...

Is it possible to increase font size, without zooming whole interface ? I use CRT TV and sometimes it is really difficult to read RSS feeds, and files names...

Thanks !

yeah fonts are too small for me on an LCD as well!

normally a case of hacking font.xml in the appropriate folder, but this can cause weird effects, so needs trying out. i will try bumping all sizes by 2 pts to start with..

skin needs a large font option imho! :)

I've finally found this tweak on this thread : http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=56438

It works really well with SLik, I used 8 as increase number.

you don't notice any cutoff with 8? that's a big jump :)

Weather Fix on start up

add this in your IncludeOrigHome.xml and IncludeAltHome.xml

Code: Select all

<item id="5">
                                                <label>8</label>
                                                <onclick>ActivateWindow(Weather)</onclick>
                                                <icon>thumbs/Weather.png</icon>
                                                <thumb>special://skin/backgrounds/weather.jpg</thumb>
                                                <visible>!Skin.HasSetting(HomeMenuNoWeatherButton) | Weather.IsFetched</visible>
                                        </item>
go to your FIND in your notepade or wordpad, search for Weather.jpg it should bring you to this area of your .xml
copy and paste

this fixes your weather when slik starts with xbmc4xbox 3.5 beta 2 :) enjoy
