3.3.3 to 3.5.3 skin changes

Post by PrimusZa1 »

I'm not looking for allot of detail but was there a major skin change format from 3.3.3 to 3.5.3? I have a custom PMIII skin with fanart view for games,tvshows,movies and music and it will not show the view in anything other than 4:3 standard on 3.5.3. If I revert back to 3.3.3 it works on all others 4:3,widescreen, 720,1080i. So I'm just wanting to get a little idea if there was allot of changes between these 2 releases before I jump back in to see if I can correct it for this release. Also is the PMIII included with 3.5.3 updated for 3.5.3? If it is it would make a better starting point for me to move the views into the updated skin.

If I was to suggest something is to transfer you existing skin through FTP (from Q:\skin\) and Project Mayhem III from SVN sources (e.g. TortoiseSVN > checkout sources) and compare them on your PC with file compare tools (like KDiff or WinMerge on Windows, entire folders). I would start by comparing skin.xml and trying things out.
