Backdrop - Skin (RELEASED!!!)

Discussion in 'MediaPortal 1 Skins' started by cul8er, January 4, 2011.

    I have no time to Work on this skin and have decided that keeping the fanarthandler plugin, the latestmediahandler plugin, the Avallonis skin up to date is all I can manage. If someone want's to take over this skin, please let me know.

    Best regards


    The concept of this skin (as the name suggests ;) ) is to display as much as possible of available backdrops (fanart). The skin uses very smooth and nice animations (menu's, facades, images and so on) to make use of the new MP1.2 possibilities. The skin will only display a limited amount of information on each screen to keep it as simple as possible (less is more). Navigation will follow a very strict schema so all screens work in the same way thus making it easy for new users. Hope you will enjoy this as much as I currently do;)

    And I forgot to mention one thing... the skin is fast. Switching back to basichome from another page is instant (less than one second) and this with full fanart support for all menu items;)

    The menu in basichome will automatically fade if a user is idle for five seconds. And then only the backdrop, time (and if media is played the now playing overlay) is shown. Turns the basichome into a screensaver;)

    This skin will only support MP1.2 RC or later. The skin is my first full HD (1920x1080) skin.

    Ghehe.. Love the menu layout Cul8er :)

    Youve gotten me interessted.
    Man, can you time-warp or something. Your doing everything at the same time... LOL

    But as a feedback on the mockup. To me it looks VERY similar to x-factor. Why not push this one within x-factor?
    There are already 3 or 4 different ones in there, or is this style too different?
