    Sorry, I have no idea how to do that. I've just used the "hard coded" ones i.e. Skin root\Media\Animations\"Folder name" that were in the .xml that I have edited. Those do work for you, right?

    You should download 1.01 and do the update and you'll notice that it's MUCH improved over 1.0. Unless you're using SVN versions, updating will only take you 20 minutes.


    Also, I did a custom splashscreen as I'm not a big fan of FOX.

    I already have run an upgrade and tried a fresh install of 1.0.1. The dvb viewing is completely broken for me so have had to go back to v1.0.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I've (mostly) had a very nice experience with 1.01.

    Hi,

    Thank you all for your feedback. I will make a new release of the skin at the end of this week so please keep the bug reports coming.

    A few answers and comments;
    ************************************************
    I will add the tv series count to the next release, thank you happy.
    ************************************************
    I will change the import order in basichome and other skin files so the now playing "window" is below the header part. Thank you emphatic.
    ************************************************
    Question; One question: where do you put the list of modules to be used in the menu generator? Is it in the .dll itself? Where can I add a module if I design the skin for it?
    Answer: You cannot add your own skin files. You are more than welcome to mod this skin but the menu editor supports only the x-factor skin. If any of you make a mod that fits into the x-factor style I would be more than happy to include it in the x-factor release and then I would also add it to the menu editor.
    ************************************************
    I will try your tvgemist file and see if we can include it in the next release, thank you GrinRoth. I have never used tvgemist.
    ************************************************
    In next release the "blue dot" is correctly aligned in TV Series, thank you explodedk.
    ************************************************
    I will try to modify the menu in picture so all fits, thank you explodedk.
    ************************************************
    Finally I would ask everyone not to post any more mods in this thread. I have a hard time to keep track of your requests and bug reports and if you start adding your own mods here it is really hard for me to keep up. I really like that you are allready making mods and I hope that some of them can find a way into the x-factor skin. If this skin get into the hot skin section we can setup a separate area for mods but until then (if ever) please keep this thread to comments/reports about the "official" x-factor skin. Hope you all understand.

    best regards
    cul8er
