    Hello

    I've adjusted the TVMiniGuide. The logos and font bigger. The three files in the Maya HD skins folder move.

    TVMiniGuide for MP 1.3 Alpha.

    Would it be possible to re-name this thread to "community mods" instead of "skin mods" in line with other threads?

    Regards.

    i loved the cdart and clearart a lot since i saw it on some xbmc screenshots some time ago and i still wonder why the adoption in mp skins is so slow, only few use them already. so i decided to add some more "eyecandy" to the already awesome maya myself and changed some other minor things to better suit my needs...

    the mod is based on mayahd for mp 1.3a, haven't tested 1.2.x...

    setup:
    ! it's recommended that you backup your files before copying the zipped ones over in case you want to reverse a change!

    all files must be placed in the appropriate subfolders of your mediaportal user files folder.
    download, unzip and place the files in your skin/MayaHD folder.

    ! remember that, if you change the fanart settings in your MayaHD BasicHome Configuration afterwards, these modified files will possibly be overwritten with the originals. so do all configuration before copying the files over...

    place your cdart and clearart in the appropriate folders and watch the naming so it matches your id3 tag data. a very good source for artwork is fanart.tv. feel free to support them and donate!

    cdart: thumbs/music/cdart
    filenaming: artist-album.png e.g.: foo fighters-echoes, silence, patience & grace.png

    clearart: thumbs/music/clearart
    filenaming: artist.png e.g.: foo figters.png


    since some pictures were changed, you have to delete cache/MayaHD before starting mp the next time for the mod to work correctly.


    preview:
    music playing now - what it looked like before and after:
    stock maya.jpg playingnow.jpg

    clearart of the albumartist:
    music_list.jpg music_bigicons.jpg music_coverflow.jpg

    redesigned infoservice layout with more focus on the news:
    infoservice_rss.jpg infoservice_twitter.jpg


    changes:
    Show Spoiler

    nowplaying music
    - added spinning cdart with slide in/out animation, clearart and rounded corners to albumcover
    - adjusted the displayed information to compensate the less space due to above changes
    - added love/ban buttons to menu
    - adjusted menubuttons in size to fit to the limited space and customized menustyling to better incorporate with hiddenmenustyle
    - fixed the forward/rewind labels overlapping each other and flashing after resume from pause

    mymusic
    - added clearart, depending on the layout (is it possible in any way to have mp read out the artistinfo of the selected album like #music.artist does with selected tracks? would be nice to have the clearart throughout this section, not only in the last level when selecting tracks)
    - why is mymusic titled "music-genre" instead of just music? changed it :)

    infoservice
    - it wasn't possible to read the newsfeeds/tweets while mediaoverlay was visible, changed that to listen to music while reading the news :)
    - new layout to set the focus more on the feed, not the listing
    - slightly modified menu to fit mayastyle
    - added jump to feeds/twitter buttons to menu

    other
    - fixed some "bugs" in hiddenmenues (mymusic, myvideos, mypictures, mytvseries) where you could not correctly navigate up/down in some views
    - replaced lowres "defaultFolderBack.png" with already existing hires "defaultSubtitlesFolderBack.png" in musiclayout: cover-list (haven't found it being used elsewhere which could be distorted now, in case report back)
    - small overlays for music got cdart aswell, got a bit bigger in size than before, added transparency to the background like in now playing screen, removed blue backgroundimage, disabled mediaoverlay in coverflow view
    - tvseries: if a video was playing, only half of the videooverlayframe was shown because the items in wide banner view etc were laying on top of it, fixed this


    thx to Shangostar/Mr V whose post & code lead me to begin with customizing maya...

    Use the album artist property rather than artist.

    If historic code... music genres us tee database code and skin files

    The mini OSD when switching channels is too small, therefore the title was often cut off.

    In the example below, the title should be "Elisabeth Taylor gegen Richard Burton", but as you can see some parts were missing.

    Therefore I decided to patch the display and let it look like the normal Info-Display:

    [​IMG]

    Extract the ZIP-file and put the xml files into the Maya HD folder and the png image into the Media folder.
    And don't forget to delete the Maya HD folder in the Cache before starting MediaPortal again.

    The progress bar was a bit too wide left. I fixed it.
