Does anyone think there should be a repository for "dead" skins. Skins that people have started working on then for one reason or another never got finished. I have seen heaps of cool skins started, but quite a few never make it into production. Maybe someone else can take them up and finish them off. Or if they are just static screenshots then maybe someone can actually "skin" them.
Just an idea, but I am about as artistic as a small house brick and would love to use some of the skins I have seen started over the last year or so.

sounds like a good idea maybe those people can make their files available for others to continue on with or update also could put in outdated skins that the author won't be continuing to update

    I, also, really like the ButcherBoy skin, and am using it now. First, I downloaded the skin from a German site, and then I used files from it to replace some files in the MCE skin. Through trial and error, I have the skin working for me for tv, radio and weather, the things that I use MediaPortal for.

    the skin is very old and need a complete update and some facelifting! maybe i will spend some time on it and give the new skin editor a try. but i can't say when it will be ready. at the moment i'm really busy at work.

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...

    That's fun. I shattered my kneecap on one of those e-scooters. I'm terribly out of shape from the months of being bedridden. I didn't get fat, at least, but a walk in the park is not an expression of something being easy anymore.

    There is currently only the reimport function, that can be used individually for media items, that were wrongly found or updated. There is no function yet to check, if the nfo content changed, it would take far too much time. But I'd also like a function to generally reimport all media items once again.

    There was no change obviously related to it, but maybe something as the fixed user management or similar made it.
