    Hi all,



    i´m now in final stage with the skinwork for the upcomming version of Fidelity skin for MP 1.2.0 Beta
    It is in the line with all changes of MP for 1.2.0 Beta

    The goal of the skin is to have a clean gui as possible, by a modern proffesional look.
    The new version is a complete overworked one, that means nearly all stuff is done new and used all the new cool stuff we have now inside Mp skinengine. Special thanks here to ajp and marvman for the fantastic new skinengine improvements, besides all the other developer of MP what have done a great Job there.

    The skin uses now in all views and relevated gfx the new maskstuff, that means no fake gfx are longer needed to make rounded edges or else there.
    With that overwork the skin has now the possibility to easy change the design with other colours, means you can now self choose how the skin should look like, Blue, green, red or what you want.
    The Skinpackage will come with a customizefolder, where you can chosse the colour you like best.
    For now the skin customize is possible for Blue, red, green and purple colour and also for the time of the day Colourchange.
    Skin supports now also fanarthandlerplugin, so you will see fanartbackdrops now in filmstrip and coverflow views in Music and Video parts, also the Nowplaying screen supports now fanart. Nowplaying screen will come also as a customize version, so you can chosse there three different styles for.
    The new Listview in the skin uses now also mask stuff for the preview of selected item, so the preview is now inside the background with a smooth fade and fits to all backgroundcolours self.


    Skin Colours:

    ..but there are much more Colours possible, because i use there no different Backgroundpictures for the colours. It is only one Picture and the colour change is done with collordiffusestuff. With that we can hold the skinfilesize smal, so the skin will also run well on slower sysems.

    Time of the daycolour:

    ..with "time of the day colour" the skin changes self the backgroundcolour in 24 steps over the day, each hour it changes the colour

    Listview with maskpreview:

    Re: Upcomming Version 1.2 of Fidelity Skin !

    as the new thumbmask stuff is add now to svn for Mp 1.2.0.
    I have now overworked all views to use the new maskstuff there, with that we not need anymore now the fake gfx in front of the thumbs in the views to get there rounded adges.
    With that new funktion there we can now use also different backgrounds, because there are no backgroundparts anymore in thumbs gfx because of the fakegfx.
    The complete views i have now overworked again, so they look much nicer then in the first screenshots.

    So the new Version of fidelity will come then with the possibilty to use different colours themes not only black then. ;):)
    ..it will have some more new "wow" effects inside. :D

    Greetings Harley

    Re: Upcomming Version 1.2 of Fidelity Skin !

    Hallo Harley,

    first i want to say HOW MUCH I LIKE THIS SKIN!!!
    Its the first time that i use another Skin than the Standard (and i use MP since some Years!)

    I´ve a short question; will the upcoming Version of Fidelity support the Fanart-Handler Plugin?

    cu
    merci1983
