JezzX commented Apr 6, 2012

You can see visual differences here
but main differences are

  • Removed the background for each section in favor of a single background (and option to change them)
  • Changed the default font used to androids 4.0.0 Roboto font
  • Added recently Added albums to home
  • Bumped up the recently added in home to 10 of each (scroll-able)
  • Added the "global search" to home (this means that that script will also need to be shipped with XBMC right?)
  • Bumped up the weather forecast to 10 days (if the weather add-on fills it default does 6 currently)
  • Added a little |> play icon next to list items to say that you are currently watching a video file but not finished it (where the watched tick is)

this also takes care of

Problems are

  • There is a issue with scroll bars not updating and static content pieh was looking into it
  • The ListItem.IsResumable condition to show the little |> icon next to items not watching is buggy again pieh was looking into it

Comment away

Hey Jezz,

really nice additions...
I will close the other PR in favor your "monster" :D
Unfortunately I can't see if there are string changes as my browser always crashes by attempting to view the diff...
If there are string changes I can take care of...


JezzX commented Apr 6, 2012

Max no point translating it until it gets but in anyway I may have to just pick and choose bits that go in (I hope not) but all I did was add one string and remove one


jmarshallnz commented Apr 14, 2012

@JezzX Perhaps a download of the skin might make it one step easier for those that want to test it out. Perhaps it's identical to the confluence_lite already available?


JezzX commented Apr 14, 2012

Its had a few updates but yeah I'll make a new build of it and upload it as a different skin to my Google code account so people can just install it separately and try it


JezzX commented Apr 14, 2012

Ok here you go for all the slackers out there (obviously not for pvr since its a pull request for master) you can use the install from zip for it
And jut for kicks here is 2 themes for it "Fire" (red) and "Kryptonite" (green) these you will have to manually extract I guess since it probably wont do a install from zip with no addon.xml

P.S the themes are not part of the pull request because they double the size of the skin to 8mb

Will Kiosk mode finaly be implemented?


JezzX commented Apr 14, 2012

nope because its confusing and really does not translate well. I'm more for the ship default with limited stuff available and then let users turn on an advanced setting than make it impossible for users to change anything at all
