    I preffer to include stable files to Titan Extended, and to be shure everyone is using always the latest version of skinfiles for Titan, include them also to the installer of browsetheweb..

    It's not clear now wich files are been developed by the team, and wich skinfiles need to be done by the plugin developers.. By example; movingpictures is done by the team.. Don't know how they think about browsetheweb.. For some plugins, the team will also update Titan skinfiles after a plugin update. But for browsetheweb I think that only the plugindeveloper and/or comunity is responsible for the right skinfiles, also after a plugin-update.

    So there need to come a clear policy about this.. :)
    Good point. If skin files was done by skin they should included in Titan Extended. If skinnig is done by community it could be shipped with plugin/

    Attached is my first attempt at a 15 row TV guide. It also contains a fix/alternate for the video overlay.
    Included is the skinsettings.gui.xml file so you can change to the guide of your choice. Works with Default and Christmas theme.
    Remember to backup any new files.

    I also made a couple of small changes to the visibility of the overall skin. I found the TitanLight fonts to be a little hard to read on my 42 inch TV, so I changed them all to <bold>yes</bold> in font.xml
    Included in visibility.zip is references.xml with watched and unwatched colours swapped.
    Hope you like.

    Regards
    Was I the person who said that a 15 row option would not been possible with keeping the nice look and feel of Titan?? Aaaaaaargh, stuppid me!!! It's looking awesome!!! Thanks :)

    Yep, and this is what seems to happen now.

    My reluctance to include it as part of the skin is that I have chosen skins that have all died and when new plugins came out I was stuck as no further development of the skin was done. This happened to me with Maya, Mustayaluca, and now Avalon.

    With the above said, I totally agree that the skin designers should have full control of how their skin should look and feel.

    With the skins Default, Default Wide and Titan being base skins I can see that this shouldn't be an issue.

    True, but on the other hand, I think it's quite a challenge keeping 3 skins up to date with all plugins...

    That's why there is a Team behind these skin's, and with user participation, no skins die anyway ;)

    As always we get out of something that we also contribute too, good will to everyone type of thing guys'n'girls :D

    I feel its up to the plugin developer to do the skin file, Once done it should be kept up to date by the skin developer. IMO who ever updates their product first.
    If the plugin changes the skin needs to be updated with all controls, so could be up to the plugin developer. But when the skin changes that should be up the skin developer. I don't really want a skin designed by a plugin developer nor do I want controls missing from the plugin if the skin designer skins the plugin.

    I don't know the best way. think there should be some clear rules about it to be honest.
