Maybe a complete-guide is not needed. Even a single task and how you solve it might be worth for a wiki page. This way it is easier for others to write a similar one and if there are several single-task-guides, somebody else might pick them up to make a complete one out of it.

Thanks for those new suggestions! For splash screen, I would suggest a more subtle one, like the one suggested by kcosta. We had some internal discussions where we choose the current icon which you can see as icon of the EXE file. It's not so easy to change it because many things have to be discussed. The icon must fit to the...

Hello All, Like the OP I am no skin designer and do not have skills. However Ive come upon an idea that am hoping would inspire someone like the developers of Maya skin (my favorite MP skin thus far) or Backdrop or StreamedMP. The idea of the skin is coverflow. All elements including the menu items in classic home (or basic home)...

This is no longer the case: the thumbnail creation is done in two ways. For server import of shares all thumbs are created and stored in the media library. The client-only browsing does only use the existing thumbs from windows 7 thumb cache. Sent from my GT-I9000 using Tapatalk

AW: Separation of menu items Smeulf, the "display category" is just a simple string which is defined as an XML attribute of a workflow action declaration.

AW: Upcoming Skinning Contest yes, I saw it already, too :P But this is a complete framework and so you can't use it with MPF, because MPF is in some points very different to WPF... Another point is that some things are just not implemented in MPF yet, like <Viewport3D..>. I'm not an expert, but I think it is at the moment more...

Re: AW: Re: MP2 Theme: Dark Silver That is really interesting, I had no idea that could be done with the new skin engine (but to be fair, I haven't read up on everything in the Wiki yet). Sounds like skin designers and their users are going to have a very productive time once they get their heads round the concept.

Re: AW: MP2 Theme: Black Backdrop Actually I've already written the particle system control. There are some technical reasons why I haven't posted it yet but I'll send you a PM shortly and you can try it out. It's really easy to add stuff like this to the SkinEngine so I expect there will be other eye-candy stuff in the future too.

You should install Visual Studio 2010(Express) and just play a bit with WPF in the Visual Designer... to see some good result you don't need any code in the project but you are able to get a good view on how to design with WPF. If you've done that the step to Media Portals MPF is not that big...
