    Agreed...it still needs a lot of work.



    I would like to get it looking like the original layout...... Screenshot_1.png ...... Screenshot_2.png ...... Screenshot_3.png ......which I think looks better and gives a lot more room for info.

    Odd thing is that if you now copy the "mvCentral.xml" from the "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\Avallonis" folder and paste it into the "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\Avallonis\Themes\Avallanche" folder while MP is still running you will get the above view.

    However, if you then shut down MP and run it again mvCentral doesn't load properly...so there's obviously something wrong somewhere. If you (or anyone else) knows the reason for this it could save me a lot of time...there's quite a few files to sift through.

    I'll have to load mvCentral with loads of videos to replicate the problem you have with the "icon" view.

    I have now added the letters of the Nordic and German-speaking countries.
    You have to install the font manually until I have found why the installation of the font becomes corrupt when installing it using mpe1

    Now there is a normal and a bold font.[DOUBLEPOST=1361627523][/DOUBLEPOST]
    Done :)

    There is a problem with the text (filename under the icons) now in icon view (myVideo) the text is placed all the way to the right so that it's only the first letters in the filename that shows, could you plaese try to fix that?

    About the infopane in TV - plans to rework this too? I know it's anoying always to reffer to XBMC (but they do a lot things right) - but having the info more like they do would be sort of nice. Is this info a specific XML - I wanted to have a look but could find it ...

    And - Generall - since avallonis the Homemenue Items are shifted to the left (so the active menue is not in center)

    Thanks, new clear art looks awesome, there are some tiny issues with the dvd logo being behind the show summary, and the show summary sometimes overlapping the right hand side art, but nothing major. Thanks so much for this the it makes everthing so much more awesome!

    Hi @pur_berger,

    Being loyal to MediaPortal it's hard to visualize what you'd like to change in the infopanel without a graphic or screenshot.

    I remember you mentioning the Home menu items being off-center before (I never took much notice of it until you mentioned it and then it started annoying the hell out of me) and I did play around with it but without much success because of the way the xml is written at present. However, I do have a "workaround" that I am using presently that is more "tricking the eye" into thinking everything is central rather than it being so and I'm pretty happy with the results for now. I've attached the xml...so give it a go and see what you think.

    Regards.

    ;) sorry for pointing your eye to this ...

    There is the MP vs XBMC thread where a screeshot is posted - and - I'm loyal too - but have the Rasbmc running to see what others an do ;)

    maybe it's my setup - but now the info pane uses much space for little info

    something else - any idea why the first time I open your XML with notepad its without any formating so I need to open it one time in wordpad and save it and afterwards it's fine in notepad again?

    Has anyone taken a look at the skin mod for RadioTime that I posted in the Avallonis thread? It needs something to get it to work with Avalanche properly. The hidden menu items don't all display the correct button texture on my system, and I am stumped. I think it would look good in Avallanche, except for that one thing. It also doesn't have the sliding buttons that Avallonis uses in other screens. Go ahead and use it as a starting point if you want to finish the mod.

    I'm either getting old or my eyes need testing!

    I've learned something new...never knew that was out there...interesting.

    Doubt it...unless you have some odd screen resolution setup...otherwise they should all be the same.

    Must have something to do with the software (Liquid XML) I use for editing.

    P.S. Without going through all the files I don't know which specific one is for the infopane...maybe @corporate_gadfly can give you this info as they are his files.[DOUBLEPOST=1361734230][/DOUBLEPOST]
    Hi @2BitSculptor,

    Can you post a link to the file and I'll have a go after I've finished the xmls for mvCentral...which is a bit of a mess at the moment and taking far longer to sort than I thought.

    Also @Micropolis has very kindly updated Screen Control this weekend after I requested him to include more voice recognition commands for the "home menu" items and a hyperlink for voice recognition system training...so hopefully Avallanche will be one of the first skins to be (almost) fully controlled by voice commands...but I obviously have to modify the xmls to suit...so I'm being kept busy this week.
