Hello @ all

Because the old XBMC Marketplace ist down i had the idea to build a new one.
Martomo and i have collect already many stuff.
timdog82001 will make the xml coding.
Martomo know about the PHP and HTML coding and will help where he can because he dont know if he have the time.

The idea is to make one big Live Place out of timdogs Video Markplace, the Team Blackbolt Live Place and the unofficel XBMC Live Marketplace?
timdog says that its totally possible.
Enough Webspace will be there without any expenses.
Because here in Germany we have many Free Web Hoster with no Trafic or File size Limit and the Servers are very stable.

So if anybody want to help us he can contact me:
MSN: nimrod@psai.de
ICQ: 273717021
or with PM

At the moment I have gathered around 2-3 GB of customized stuff for MC360, checking what themes are working at the moment, allot of them are copies and some are broken or just wallpaper packs as theme.

The plan is that we post all the themes in one section, so you can access them if you want no matter how messed up they are happy.gif
And in the other section we post the themes that will be working for the current/latest version, those will also be available for download at XBMC Live Place through a script.

After searching the web and sorting themes for 2 days, I've come up with around 200 themes, which is 785 MB, anyway I'm uploading as I speak, might take awhile, my upload isn't that fast unsure.gif
Hoping to announce the link for all themes tomorrow or maybe even tonight.

P.S. Why is that stupid edit button only valid for 30 seconds _

Finally after some upload problems they are online, a total of 212 theme files are available!
I've changed the theme filenames to more readable names, for selecting them in MC360, also there some old versions marked with an "_old_" prefix.

Anyway help you self out at http://xbmc.kilu.de/themes/

Stay tuned for more updates...

there will also be an XBMC script to access this ?

would be nice if there would be skin/theme sections on the site, and skin makers would be able to customize the directory's in the script, so they can include it with their skin.
So when people use the marketplace with their skin, the right directory's are allready set, and someone using the Vision skin doesnt start downloading an mc360 theme.

Do you mean something like this?

http://xbmc.kilu.de/...ts/allthemes.py (right click, save as...)

If you want it to replace the current theme downloader rename it with get_tbb_themes.py and put it in Q:\skin\MC360\extras\XBMCLivePlace

Also the only skin that supports XBMC Live is MC360 at the moment as far I know, but there is a web interface planned for the future, for now we're trying to gather as much content as we can, before we run into more broken links.

i know mc360 is the only one to use the marketplace, but with populair skins like vision and Xtv around the corner, people are making themes and such for those to.
so giving the makers of other skins the possibility to have their own marketplace would be great.
i know for sure that the skin i'm working on will need/have one.

My skin being XMBox, a PS3 style skin. working on it together with MacGyver

Its a great idea.
But the biggest problem is not to built it in the skin.
Its the Webspace.
So when you would add stuff for every skin or just a few, you need many Webspace.
And pay Space is expansive.
But the idea is to keep all of this for free.
We use some Free Webspace but its only 1GB and i am not shure iff the hoster would double it.
But when they do, we will need it only for MC360.

allright, i see the problem with webspace.
but still, it would be great if you guys were willing to share your sources so that someone else can put up their own marketplace if they want.

like, if you guys make a site in PHP, you would be sharing the files of the area XBMC browses (you dont have to share the entire site ofcourse tongue.gif) so that other people can easely implement it for themselfs.

ofcourse mc360 is an exception, there are ALLOT of theme's for it.
other skins wont have 1 GB of theme's for quite some time, so for them webspace isnt that big of a problem wink.gif

I really hope you guys will make this mc360 marketplace, but also keep other skins in mind.
either share your sources so others can set it up, or maintain a few other sites (different domains) for other skins.
I'm sure it wont be That much work to maintain other theme sites, but that's all up to you tongue.gif

I proposed the same thing to him earlier....Perhaps if we contacted a couple of people about it we could see if they'd be willing to contribute a little money to the project to allow for purchasing some extra space. Like blaize said, most skins really have very few mods or themes available for them, so I imagine it wouldn't be that big of a deal to add that possibility. Really, I think the only other skins with anything to host other than minor skin mods (which take up essentially no space) are vision and xtv, and a little bit for containment.

Maybe paid hosting is needed for the mc360 skin, but not for the others.
they currently have a free 1 GB host.. 1 GB tongue.gif
just setup multiple sites on the free hosts, and if needed.. a paid host for the mc360.

what do you think about it N1mrod ?
if you want to make this happen, the marketplace for XMBox will really be something great, and it would be a great addition to other skins also
