I get an error when i click on the xTV themes link, it says "The folder xTV_Themes does not exist."
Did you delete them ? or am i doing something wrong
Keep in mind this thread hasn't active since April, also with FileEden you can't really share your folders, only direct links. So when it says "The folder xTV_Themes does not exist.", it means that you don't have that folder on your account.
If you want to download themes you can use the built in theme downloader in xTV which can be found under:System > Download Themes
Or if you like to download them from the web and preview them before downloading, please check out the mirror on XBMC Black Market

Hey guys, this a forum. 1) Use fora to distribute ?
Is this a convenient (i.e. reliable) way to distribute themes ?
All these RapidShare and FilEden links are down when you need them.
Not to mention the blocks after a few uses :-(.
For the moment you can download themes from http://blackmarket.ictcsc.net/index.php
It works but it is stupid that you have to click each individually.
I used Teleport, a leecher, to get them in one go :-). 2) From the XBMX ?
The distribution from the xbox using an option in system is not too bad.
stop multiplying 1 theme into many for just a change of colour, background, sound, font.
These can be changed from within the skin: Settings, skin settings, font|colour|sound
are we as stupid as MS that is doing this to fill up its marketplace (user icons, game videos).
Finally resulting in a mess where most people simply don't look anymore. Takes too much time
to filter the few goodies from all the crap. Come on, we're wiser than that. Aren't we ? P.S.
Thanx to blackbolt for having started the interest in skinning the XBMC with his MC360.
Thanx to all the pioneers in skinning. It's to them we are now receiving an (almost) original skin
as Vison. I say "almost" as it should get rid of this image looking like an iTV in the start menu.
Vision with theme Blaze is 99% original !
If you have a better way to distribute themes then besides a forum, please tell us.
Also like we mentioned before, XBMC Black Market is just a mirror/host, for all the themes that has been posted in the past, we don't take any credit for it, we just want to provide you with as much choice to customize the current skin and/or XBMC.
Besides we've added previews to all the themes so you don't have to download them all and complain how ugly or wrong you think they are.2)
Why should we stop making different things, it's not like you have to pay for it, like the Xbox Live Marketplace and besides, it only offers you more options to customize your XBMC, it also gives the people who are not so good at XML or GFX the opportunity to change it to there flavor without having to split there minds into coding and tutorials, but it seems you know so well and so much better, why don't you make some 'awesome' skins or themes for the community.
Just stop complaining about the skins and themes, it's not all about you, there more people in the world that like the other skins and themes, besides you can only really use one skin and/or theme.
