    I've made an initial conversion of the main wide screen (1280 x 720) xmls to full HD (thanks @m3rcury for the link to your converter). Only a couple items have been tweaked, on first inspection, (the zoom values for big covers) that didn't convert properly. There is a lot more that will need to be identified and corrected. I know the fonts will need to be fine tuned (I used font size 15).

    The preliminary (alpha) aMPed HD xmls are available below. To install, create an aMPed HD folder in your skins folder, copy all the aMPed folders (you will need aMPed installed beforehand) into the aMPed HD folder, then put all the aMPed HD xmls into the aMPed HD folder.

    The aMPed Config utility will NOT work with aMPed HD (although it is possible some settings may transfer over), so you get to play with the menu that I started with, until a new aMPedHDConfig is delivered ... or a skin-based menu editor can be made. I will keep my own mods as (alpha) until it gets an official release from Dadeo.



    Thanks for any assistance.

    revised aMPed HD skin xmls zip 27 Oct 2015.

    Hi 2Bit,
    Better use the attached skin converter made by Bavarian and the COMPLETE tag list by me ;)
    If you have questions about the usage, don´t dare to ask ;)

    I liked the results of the first conversion better.

    btw, I'm using the aMPed HD skin files on my HTPC.

    I've gone as far as I can, as I don't use any other skin settings, plugins, nor play any of the games..

    :)

    Need to go line-by-line in references, and compare the HD to the 16x9 values show the x1.5 increase... I found many width labels did not show the change.... I corrected the ones for the screens I use, but did not go through the whole xml

    Some more changes, a little more consistent. I will keep my own mods as (alpha) until it gets an official release from Dadeo.

    New Zip in first post.
