This is the next step from clearity-remix to X-cite..

IPB Image
This is X-cite with no gadgets on, Nice and plain huh.gif
The clearity-remix background is default ( its kinda my thing )
But you can pick your custom background anyway...


IPB Image
O.k all the feature are on,...
The image for the ID card comes from your profile so make sure you have a photo set for your profile
The RSS feeds are Dual feeds, so to add the second feed,
Just add this to your Rssfeeds.xml in xbmc / userdata
CODE

<set id="2">
    <feed updateinterval="10">http://news.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonline_world_edition/front_page/rss.xml</feed>
  </set>
</rssfeeds>

Or what ever Link you want, id has to be "2" though.

I have added a Vista like slideshow frame for the homepage,
just select your custom photos folder that you want to view - take In Mind Viewing Large photos files will
make the RSS feeds pause for a second while the photos transition form 1 to another

IPB Image
I kinda of glassed up some of the textures so there looking much better now
xlink-kai also got a going over, It was pretty bad in remix

Also theres more than 1 skin theme, The first photo is the skin default icons..
and you could easily make your own - Check deviantart.com for .png docking icons and XPRexpress to compress them

IPB Image

I probable wont be as active in the forum as usual, have to get back to studying Java...
Was on a bit of a break, Some break rolleyes.gif , at least I can relax a bit now
will still be on the forum from time to time, but skinning will have to take a back seat for a bit...

nice skin but i think your older skin Clearity-Remix was better i mean the home page this new one just looks to messy and also Concept who you are helping as a better pro feel about it the home page i mean i liked that better than the new X-cite skin sorry

the only diffrence is the home page i just dont like it so i`ll stick to Clearity-Remix skin and i might even start using the Concept skin as that is looking good but the X-cite skin just to poor the main page is not very good

i dont mean to be nasty i just hope you keep on working on it and make it better but i would rethink the home page

I've always wanted to try Remix and this skin, unfortunately when I do attempt it the skin loads but then the fonts blank out and so I'm lost. Happens in XBMC_PC and with my xbox... sure looks purdy but it wont run.

Yep had that problem as well. by default the font of choice is called default. go to the fonts dir and you will see there is no font called default! doh! I copied one of the other fonts and called it default. and every thing worked.. I also had to copy the media folder in as well as this wasnt in the build dir.

Hope this helps.

A few updates coming - slowly thought not in a rush Just doing bits an pieces in my spare time...
Making a few more few types for videos and music
Probable have an enable/disable text under Home icons switch because its looks pretty nice without text...

Still have to get some dialog work done, and maybe get on to library views and stuff which I don't use myself....

Any suggestion welcome,

Cant say that I'll use them all but definitely think about it
