    Hi rekenaar,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Sorry, I forgot this one. Will fix and post a fix very soon.

    I will investigate if this is possible and get back to you.



    best regards

    Great skin! it's my new favorite.

    One quick question, with my not so great eyesight (getting old sucks), I have a hard time distinguishing between the white and light blue color for watched and unwatched.

    Any way to change the color settings? I remember long ago when I first started using streamedmp you could manually edit some files to accomplish this. Can the same be done with backdrop?

    Thanks for your great work.

    the colors for watched status in moving pictures are the opposite of the ones in tv series

    Hi sanderson,

    Thank for your feedback. What do you mean by no volume OSD. Is this when playing a movie or tv? I have volume OSD when playing movies or tv here. Located at the top of the screen. Do anyone else have this problem?

    best regards

    @cul8er: Thanks for another release to test :D

    I've had a quick look and here's what I've noticed:

    -Weather 5 day forecast is still "broken" - no wheather information appears now :( It was OK in version 1, the only problem was that the menu overlaid the information slightly, but now no information shows when the menu is showing :mad:

    - MyPics: I like the full definition pics in the background (Filmstrip & Coverflow views) but they take too long to load (about 3 seconds) and when they load the Coverflow menu "jumps" for some reason. This could just be my test system but it's a Core2 Duo so it should have enough power to show a few pics...

    - Music - When I first go into Music the "genre" lable shows as #AlbumInfo.Genre - doesn't go away until I scroll onto a song title - I'm pretty sure this wasn't the case previously?

    I've had a few issues with MP jamming up a bit but that could just be my test setup - I'm pretty close to trying MP1.2 and Backdrop on my live HTPC... :D

    Great work :D

    Hi Bleazle,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    This is how I want it to work ;) It is consistent with other screens where views and information are hidden when the menu is activated. Sorry that you do not like it. Perhaps someone will post a mod for it...

    I will look into this but currently I don't see this behavior on my system. Will try again.

    This is a MP bug and I think and hope it will be fixed for MP1.2 RC

    Thanks for helping to improve the skin with all your feedback, much appreciated.

    best regards

    ScreenSaver Setup

    @CypherMK (and anyone else using Backdrop who wants a screensaver that uses pics)

    I've added a "Screen Saver" button to the "NowPlaying" screen (it's hidden unless the plugin is enabled).

    How to setup the screensaver:

    1. Download Nostalgic and follow the installation instructions from that website (very easy)

    2. Download the Multishortcut plugin - MP 1.2b compatible version below.

    3. Install the plugin as per the instructions included. Make sure you rename the MultiShortcut00.dll file to ScreenSaver.dll. THEN run DLLFix.exe (as per the install instructions)

    4. Open MP Config -> Plugins, setup the ScreenSaver plugin as per the attached screenshot. Make sure the Plugin ID is 3876111

    Note: The Exefile path shown is for Vista; for W7 it will be in the SysWOW directory (so obviously you need to make sure you know the path to Nostalgic.exe)

    5. Drop the attached MyMusicPlayingNow.xml file into the Backdrop directory (over write the existing file - make a backup copy of that file first just to be safe :) )

    5. Open MP - Play a song - go to the Now Playing Screen, open the menu, select "Screen Saver" (I didn't use a skin translation for this label because there probably isn't one - open the MyMusicPlayingNow.xml file and edit "Screen Saver" if you don't want it in English)

    If you've done everything correctly you should have a screen saver with random pics :)
