I've tried to implement that in Maya too last year but it wasnt possible back than :(.
How did you pull this off. :D
He pulled it of by incorporating it into his own plug; fanarthandler.
It still isn't possible directly from a bare MP, the plug adds the functionality.

Re: 2Level Skin (New Skin In Design Stage)

Hi,

I was playing around a bit yesterday and wanted to see how the skin looks like in black. I will still use the blue color but will perhaps add an option in the menu editor so that you can choose between the blue or the black.

best regards
cul8er
black is better ;)

add an option :D

    As I mentioned long ago I think black would be better to enhance the contrast for better readability ;) +1!

    But not too black though. Too high a contrast will result in 'glowing' text. Thats why windows mediacenter is blue. The contrast between white text and a blue background is an ideal combination. :D

    Blue is also a nice balanced color to minimize brightness bloom/distortion on CRT TVs.

    Besides, Blue compliments my living room colors. :D

    ... any chance you can add a weather thumb for radar/satellite image next to the today weather on the Basic Home Weather screen?

    regards,

    Chuck

    Re: 2Level Skin (New Skin In Design Stage)

    On the "Latest Series/Recordings" thumbs, a light image makes the labels unreadable. Is it possible to add a dark (transparent) bar behind the thumb labels?

    regards,

    Chuck

    Re: 2Level Skin (New Skin In Design Stage)

    Hi,

    Most things are now ready for a first release of this new skin. I have just released a test version (Beta) of the fanart handler plugin. As soon as that plugin is properly tested and works without problems I will release version one of this skin.

    I'l get back with more information as soon as I release Fanart Handler 2.2.

    Best Regards
