    Thank you for the reply. I completely understand, I am very excited about updating to 1.2, but cannot until I have a skin that supports the plug-in's I use the most.

    I will try to persevere.

    AW: PureVision 4:3

    Updated to version 5.0.0.1 ;)
    Corrected some glitches with stretched recording GFX, Extensions, MovingPictures, TVSeries, Teletext (now centered and a bit transparent), updated images on Server so you now have the screenshots in the MPEI iInstaller and in Extensions GUI.
    Hope you´ll like it :D

    Thank you very much for the work you have done to give us another 4:3 skin.

    I must say, though (I know and appreciate how much goes into skinning), that the smaller font sizes used are nearly unrecognizable on a standard analog NTSC TV. They look quite acceptable on a multi-sinc or digital monitor, but 480 vertical lines (720 x 480 NTSC screen dimension) limits the pixels needed to assemble a font11 character legibly. The thin strokes of even the font13 and font14 sizes get smeared against the background noise and chroma-bleed inherent in analog NTSC TVs.

    I realize that there is not much real estate to work with in a 4x3 skin, and I can guess that is the reason it is avoided by most skinners (and the fact that there are fewer and fewer people with SD TVs).

    I'm not ranting, just making an observation.
