i just got MXM .9i very nice work

I just have a few questions

1)Where do i get the generator skin? (if this is a legal Question)

2)Is generator the only one that plays movies?

3)Do it play em automatically or do i have to turn on a setting? (if so, where?)

(sorry for so many Q's)

4)Does MXM find the movies from games or do we get em from the net and put them somewhere? (if so, where?)

No, all of them play movies. Generator is a skin that uses movies in the background, for a trippy look.

The upcoming skin (released with "K") will also make extensive use of video backgrounds.

It's in the user's guide. The primary method is to create or copy a valid WM8 file into the game directory and name it MXM_SS.wmv, though there are also ways to specify the location, if they are stored elsewhere or under a different name.

It depends. The requirement is Windows Media 8 encoded video (WMV) with an audio channel (must have audio, even if it's silent). This is because it's the video format supported by the XDK libraries I use.
