    THANK YOU for listening to our bitching and including the original MPTV Series skins, they're SO much easier to use than the "new" design :) once again, thank you for your great work - this skin is by far the superior skin for MP :)



    EDIT: If there's no fanart for a series background, the background is just plain black in both show and season view, is it possible to use the default monochrome background for these - and how?

    Undefined variables in Original Filmstrip & WideBanners

    :D First off, let me give a huge thanks for bringing back the original TVSeries layout with 2.6. Now the bad news.

    Can't believe this hasn't been brought up yet, but the season/episode lists for TVSeries' Original layout is screwed up.

    Luckily, I have found the problem: the variables SeriesIcons, SeriesEpCount, SeasonIcons, and SeasonEpCount are not defined in the Original TVSeries.SkinSettings.xml for Filmstrip and WideBanners. Consequently, these variable names are appearing in the list instead of the intended formatted output. It's especially bad for the icon variables, as these also aren't positioned correctly and thus overwrite the first part of the label.

    I tried fixing them by grabbing Default's nice watched/unwatched layout, but I can't figure out how to reposition list items so I can't get the icons (i.e., the watched/unwatched counts) positioned correctly. I also can't figure out how the cool watched/unwatched eye icons are referenced & positioned; the icon filenames (tvseries_Watched.png, et al.) aren't used anywhere except partially in Default's TVSeries.xml as "<define>#tvseries_Watched:-</define>", which in turn doesn't seem to be referenced anywhere else.

    These XML layout files are sweet, but they're so damn confusing. If someone can point me in the right direction to position list items, which I assume is somewhere in TVSeries.xml, I'll tweak and post the corrected files. The best I've been able to do right now is to hide the icons and setup item3 as "<Unwatched> of <EpisodeCount>" at the far right. I can post those if someone wants them, but I'd prefer to wait and post the complete fix rather than a bunch of partial fixes.

    Image Background?

    First of all, thanks for the great skin!

    I'd love to make some custom "hover" button images, for plugins and what not, but lack the skills necessary to match the background you've used for all the default icons. Is there any chance you could include a "blank" hover image with the skin? It would be great to have a good-looking starting point.

    In any case, your work on this skin is very appreciated!
