will Basics-vision get custom background in the future?

My dirty little secret is I added it then removed it because none of the images I added made it look anygood this was the only decent looking (another vista one) of all I tried all the transperant black made them look funny

So I guess down the track I might be convinced to re add it but too busy doing 4x3 now

hope once you're free you be able to re-add the feature. biggrin.gif
Then we can see theme ported from vision to BV.. or all new themes

Awesome work with the skin Jezz_X! I love it. Looks like it will beat Vision as my primary.

I have some suggestions though.

1. An option to set clock or icon in the middle of homescreen. the orb looks unfinished. Or is it just that I'm not used to it just being black yet. But an option would be great.

2. And if the option is to set clock in the middle, there might have to be an option to disable clock/date on top. The same below, if you have RSS disabled, I would like the two graphic elements below to disappear.

3. The most important suggestion, please create a basic list option. The list2 that is now is useless with the GIANT icon to the right, making my filenames scroll. So it would be awesome with an ordinary list option aswell.

Hmm, that's all for now. As I said earlier, great job.. it looks great. Love the background and that it feels more HD than the orig. Vision.

Thanks.

EDIT: Just have to add that I the new menuanimation in home screen is way better than orig Vision. The OSD menu when playing video is also much nicer now!

I use a custom background and I think it looks quite nice. IPB Image

I just replaced the background.png from the SVN with my own before I compiled it.
It would be nice to see a custom background option in the future though.

1) OK I might make it so if the time goes in the middle the date stays up the top I agree about it lookign empty but I just had no idea wht to put in there
2) disable rss in the xbmc settings you mean ?
3) hrmm really not to sure about this one it makes sense to me but I have never had a problem do you use 720p because it fits lots more text in or some other rez ?. I know this maybe be a problem in 4x3

2. Yeah, when I disable RSS in the xbmc settings, then it would be nice if those bars would disappear smile.gif

3. I use 720p. And with that huge ass icon to the right it looks like 640x480 res smile.gif I would like regular list, like in all others skins. Is it hard to implement?

Ah. but please do it. the List2 just gives the text like 40-45% of the total area of my TV. that is a waste smile.gif

Hehe I like all those things, but I see so gawd damn much, that I don't have time to set icons/screenshots on all. I have made custom folder graphics that I use for my Movie dir and TVseries dir. But that is about it.

But even if I have episode screens, the with that the text is allowed to have is still to narrow smile.gif The beauty of vision was that I get lots of space so that I can see my items to the fullest smile.gif

Really enjoying this skin, customizing a little. Agree with the use of custom backgrounds. Thought I'd share a look at mine. IPB Image
