    This skin comes from a concept i was developing for Mediaportal 2.0 using vector graphics.
    It seemed a good starting point and worth of publishing for Mediaportal 1.2.x.
    Development was very fast and took less than a month during my little spare time.
    Optimized for Full HD resolution.
    The skin is meant to be used from a remote or keyboard. Mouse is partially supported.
    Fanart supported in every screen.
    Different color themes are available (Lime/Default, Amber, Indigo, Fuchsia, Titanium).


    Download - Initial set up

    Use TortoiseSVN to download the latest in-development version of the skin:

    Skin Updates

    If you want to update the skin, right click on "Chroma" folder and select "SVN Update"
    Remember to delete the Mediaportal cache folder (usually "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Cache") every time you update the skin. Use this guide to clear the Mediaportal cache folder.


    Extras:
    • HD Ready support. If you need to run the skin using HD Ready resolutions (1280x720 or 1366x768), you need to download and install in the skin folder this package: Patch Hd Ready.rar
    • TV Mini Guide 3 Rows. If you prefer more visible screen with the tv mini guide, install this file: Patch TV Mini Guide 3 Rows.rar
    • TV Mini Guide 6 Rows. If you prefer a full screen tv mini guide, install this file: Patch TV Mini Guide 6 Rows.rar

    Testing it now, initial thoughts:

    * Could use some fresh artwork pictures (the Dexter one for TV-Series is incredibly overused IMHO) to give it a bit more WOW! factor
    * Moving Pictures doesn't use the plugin's custom naming that you can setup in Moving Pictures configuration but just a text label?
    * The MePo logo at the top of each screen, perhaps add a Theme that hides this to prevent burn-in on Plasma TVs?
    * It's a very fast and nice skin - top notch!

    I'm running 1.3 Alpha, so I can't test it much more than what I'm doing now, but I look forward to it being available for 1.3 Beta. :)

    Cheers

    AWESOME LOOK!

    Going through the install procedure as I spe... type.

    [edit]
    Aww... cr*p. After reading emphatics reply I understands why I get a warning about outdated plugins.
    Im on 1.3a as well.
    I'll report my findings

    I see in the googlecode folder you're planning a 1.3 version as well. Hope its soon so my testing can be more effecient.
