High Definition Skinning
Posted 15 November 2005 - 08:18 AM
But no matter how I try, making all images bigger like Width="1920" Height="1080" for the background and such plus adding this tag to the skin.xml
<ScreenSize Width="1920" Height="1080"/>
The skin will always act like its in 640x480 mode and then streach the skin items such as the menu and images out and if I try to put the menu at something like Top="600" Left="700" Unleash will just display them off the screen even though I am running in a screen rez of Width="1920" Height="1080" so it should display it in the middle somewhere.
I can confirm that I am running in that rez by looking at the system info when I press the Y button and also my TV tells me so
So I ask
Is it even possible to make a native Hidef skin ???
has anyone ever made one that works properly ???
If the answer is yes can someone give me a link to it so I can see how it works for myself

Nope looks like UXArchietect can't make a proper 1080i skin either

I finally got my cables (bought them from Sticky_Bud) and tested my skins out. The menu filled just about the whole screen! I enlarged it to fit nicely inside UXA, but it's gotten kinda fucked. I guess it's trial and error getting it working.
So I got a little confused there does that mean you can't get it to work too ?

I put the DVDtitle in the upper left hand corner, and it ended up in the middle of the screen. Guess I need to learn to do it manually.

This is what's happening with my personal one:
Even when I do it manually!
This is what it should be like:
Except the menu should self stretch and the preview videos should too.

If you wanna test my theory then move /resize everything in the skin into the first 640x480 of the image and they will all display fine
Oh and ever heard of clickable thumbnails =)

I feel sorry for anyone running any resolution lower than 1280x1024. Those screens are gunna kil.
Any ideas as to how to fix this problem? I'm sure I saw a 720p skin out there before. I'll grab it, see if it works, and if it does, I'll dissect it.

From the skin .xml compare to the actual image above (Allow some pixels for me inaccurate measures)
Main Menu is like 45 pixels wider than set in the skin
<Preview EnableAudio="True" Top="13" Left="342" Width="220" Height="153" />
<Position Top="50" Left="15" Width="323" Height="149" Fixed="True" FixAt="1" MaxItem="6" />
Game Icon and this is the big one we can all see whats going on in is like 50 pixels more to the right than the xml says and 20+ pixels wider
Oh and just to set some things straight with the post above
the skin is made for 480p mode and has a rez of 720x480 UnleashX usually displays in 640x480 thus the widescreen tag on the skin
Overlay Images are not a problem they will always display in the right size if you put width / height tags in them but like this skin will be drawn off the screen in 640x480 mode
Things that always get treated like 640x480 are
- background image/video
- preview videos
- game icons
- main menu
- Anything past the 640x480 in xpos and ypos will be drawn off the screen
