    im using the default layout from aj1405 as basic and changed it with the options i like to have in it

    Be aware this mod is for now only for the LISTVIEW option
    i will release an updated release for the other view options in future also

    Any suggestions for upcoming releases are very welcome :)

    @SilentExcept currentmovieindex / totalmoviesindex will be added in a future release i created a ticket in moving pictures google code and the moving pictures team is gonna add it in the future :)

    CHANGES:



    Ready For Moving Pictures 0.7.2
    time at top of the screen
    movie count at top of screen ( displays your total movie in movingpictures :) )
    Movie Release year is now behind movie titel

    Hi,

    looks good. Have a look at my take on the Moving Pictures design in b&w.
    Notable changes:
    - Replaced Writer with Actors
    - Moved Year to the top (more important for me)
    - Clock still missing

    Feel free to ignore it or to take whichever ideas you like. I will not publish the xml files, though. Much too messy.

    well since you asked :)

    i would loose "movie plot" and "movie details" text.. not really needed :)

    i also like the idea of having the year on top but don't really wanna loose any other stuff like rating or tagline there.. maybe it could all fit somehow..

    clock is nice to have..i like that :) and i also like the dvd case touch

    i would loose the text "Total movies" too and replace it with counter like this currentmovieindex / totalmoviesindex if possible that is..

    keep up the good work!

    i checked with the currentmovieindex / totalmovie index

    but has to be changed also with the facade view
    i dont know how to change that i am a newby in skinning

    this is what the mp skindesigners guide says

    Two new labels have been added to indicate the number of movies in the users movie collection, and the number of movies currently listed in the facade based on filtering. See the Labels section below for details.

    i tried changing #MovingPictures.general.totalmoviecount to #MovingPictures.general.filteredmoviecount

    but it still displays the same so only total movies
    im gonna ask in mp forum thread if someone can help me with that index cause i want it also :)


    also removed the details and plot bar and gonna replace the stars at top with the year and move the stars to the details label

    great job!

    i had an idea about the release year.. maybe it would be best to put it in the same line as movie title, in this format:
    Title (Year)

    that way everything could fit nicely on top of the screen..

    what do you think?

    its an idea

    but i prefer the release year under the title :)
    cause in my eyes it looks better :)

    otherwise the title gets in some case to long and to messy ;)

    I would also prefer the Title (Year) construct, the IMDB also uses this notation. Example: Awake (2007).
    This method doesn't consume as much space as your method, allowing one extra field in the title list.

    Anyway, very nice work!
    I would be glad to use your layout, since it is much better than the default (B&W) one....

    Thanks for all the work!
