    cul8er: I also noticed that the little lamp for the playlist control "Repeat" is broken. Try it and you'll know what I mean. :D



    Also, +1 for hoping this'll get a "Hot Skin" status soon!

    Edit: Automerged doublepost + I remembered that the album title label on the now playing screen is wider than the player and also should be a "fade label". Perhaps this is only true on one of the different pages with the "audio player" visible, lyrics?

    Hi etagure,

    You cannot add you own folders in animations. You can only use existing folders. For games this is: emulator, games, tetris and suduko. I must limit the number of folders used as otherwise the skin would become to heavy in the home screen.

    So in short;
    * Suduko will show the pictures you put in suduko folder (in random order)
    * Tetris will show the pictures you put in tetris folder (in random order)
    * Emulators will show the pictures you put in emulator folder (in random order)
    * Games will show the pictures you put in games folder (in random order)

    Future versions may support adding dedicated images to submenues but this is not possible in the current version.

    cheers

    cul8er. could you make a button in your menu editor that allow people to see all unsuported xml files in the x-factor directory ?


    also could be nice if you leave and option to rename the default name (e.g i want Moving Pictures to be shown as My Movies)

    Hi explodedk,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    This is allready possible. Select Moving Pictures in the list and then change the name before adding it to a submenu ;)

    No. The menu editor is for x-factor. Mods must handle this themself. I want a clear difference between x-factor and user mods.

    best regards
    cul8er

    Wow seems like this skin is VERY popular.

    One thing I have noticed, could be me having a bad day. In TV series I cant select any other view than list. Is it not possible to have banner view etc?

    Also could you PLEASE add a skin file for My programs alt. It doesnt have to be to fancy. Maybe just a view with DVD boxes that the cover art will go in from myprogramsalt. At present it is the only pluggin that I use for PC games for various reasons. I know there is my emulators and multi shortcut but they just don't do it for me for the PC games :( (they are great for what they are designed for though). There is a new pluggin being developed but it is no where near finished yet.

    I was also wondering about no quit button but reading back you have fixed that already :)
    To be honest I am going to leave mine without, if poss, as there is LESS temptation to quit out and fiddle with things (not me the wife).

    It would be nice in the future to alter/ change any backdrop for any of the menu items.

    Many thanks for the links to where to get the photos from. looks like someone registered with my username as it is taken :( never mind lol. I bet they are doing a roaring trade now and you should be on commision :D

    I have been using your skin all easter holidays and I can only say GREAT WORK TO A TRULY GREAT LOOKING SKIN.
    I am sure your skin is going to be around for some time now so :D

    Regards

    Kev
