    Re: AW: BleazleWide V8

    Hello Bleazle,

    can you please take a look on the screenshot in this link?
    OnlineVideos

    Have you any idea where this "RSS" logo comes from?

    Thanks alot

    greetings
    Hi cerberus!

    I don't know anything about the Online Videos plugin - I only installed it for the first time yesterday and I noticed a similar thing - when I was downloading a file from YouTube the YouTube logo was in the top left corner (where the RSS image is in you screenshot) skin wide even if I changed skins (to B3W :eek: for example). I don't like that idea and there must be a way to stop it happening but I haven't had a chance to look at it yet.

    If someone gives you the answer on your other post can you let me know? That will save me from having to work it out :) :D

    BleazleWide V8.1

    Hi All

    I've just released BleazleWide V8.1 (see the first post for info)

    Apart from working on BleazleWide I've been playing around with a new skin for the touchscreen HTPC I'm going to put in my kitchen/dining area. I love BleazleWide but (in my opinion) that skin is more suited to a dedicated "formal" TV room. The skin I'm working on now will be lighter to suit the more "social" area. I don't plan on releasing this skin - I don't have time to support two skins properly but I thought I'd post some screenshots since I was here :D

    The background "space" image is just a space filler - it won't be there when I'm finished. The idea is to keep the skin simple - since I'm not going to release it I don't need to give buttons "titles" because I'll know what they're for (unless I've had too much to drink while cooking... :D )

    This is the touchscreen I'm going to use install: HP TouchSmart 600 Desktop reviews - CNET Reviews

    Can't wait :D just need someone to go to the States and pick it up for me :mad: Actually that's arranged, but it probably won't happen for a couple of months :(

    Love the idea of the Touchscreen skin. Even though you are not releasing the skin would it be possible to get a copy of it when it is complete that I could then support and modify myself.:D

    It doesn't work for me :( While running MP it writes "Current skin is outdated" and after a second just disappear.
    Any advices would be very appreciable.

    Wow. It's looking good again. I'll try this weekend.
    There is only one little thing I miss. In Moving Pictures I would like to display the alternate title. (Got a lot of chinese and korean movies)
    Is there a way to add this to this fantastic skin?

    Re: BleazleWide V8.1

    Hmm, was looking forward to giving this a go, but when i try to run the package i get 'invalid package'? Im running it as an upgrade to V7.1 on MP1.0.1, any ideas?

    EDIT: I think its because i dont have MPEI installed. The version in the link on your download page doesnt seem to work, does anyone have another link to a working version?

    mmm.. I'll see how it progresses but to be honest I'm not sure that it would be a good place for you to start from because I'm really going to make it do what I want so there won't be any allowances for "someone else might prefer that option". If you want to have a go at putting something together yourself I recommend looking at Black & White 1080 - the BasicHome screen there gave me the idea for the new BleazleWide BasicHome + as always Monochrome is worth a look, it has a lot of great features some of which are used in BleazleWide or have been used as an inspiration for BleazleWide (eg the "hidden" buttons in the new BasicHome screen)

    It doesn't work for me :( While running MP it writes "Current skin is outdated" and after a second just disappear.

    If you're running MP 1.1 RC1 you'll still get the "Current skin is outdated" message - you get it for B3W too, I don't know why because the skin versions are correct so maybe it has something to do with the MP core (or something). I'm sure that will be sorted for RC2 though (hopefully).

    Apart from that I've got no idea why the skin won't run for you. I've tested it on an XP and a Vista setup and it runs perfectly. Maybe someone else will have an idea...

    I didn't know there was an "alternate title" option - can you point me to any info on it? I'll have a look over the weekend and see what can be done....

    Maybe the installer won't run in MP 1.0.1? Did you install the installer properly? All you do is drop all of the files contained in the zip file into you MP directory, and then run the MPE1 installer .exe file from there.

    Let us know if that works.

    AW: BleazleWide V8.1

    olinevideos

    The RSS image was set to the GUI property #header.image if you switch to the onlinevideos-plugin. To his opinion within the Bleazle-Skin this property is not resettable at the TV window. If anyone can give a better explanation, please help me out - my English isn’t good enough.

    Hi Bleazle,

    many thanks for the updates .. huge thanks for bringin back "MY" basic home screen. you see, it goes nice with my wall unit :D
    I really like the install selections.. very profesional... (You found help, did you?)

    I did get the skin version issue and had to change the reference file (maybe RC2 will fix this ?)

    1 minor issue I've found is with Lyrics is when select next page and then try to go back to previous lyric page.. I lost control for selections and have to back to previous screen (leaving lyric)
    btw.. love the lyric shortcut in music screen (I must of missed this one)

    loving your weather backdrop addon !!

    Vff
