Reason for the skin:
I've decided to expand the amount of zones in my house, allow for syncing of the upstairs and syncing the whole house. So I'm looking at 7 zones and three synced zones...which is too much for Zoneskin2 to display properly, unless it underwent some large modifications. I also wasn't totally fond of the flow of Zoneskin2. Finally, I feel that the most attractive thing to Zoneskin2, meaning the zonemap, should be brought to the forfront and utlilized.
Here are some updated screen shots:
Album select (*UPDATED 16/7/07*):
House Sync view:
Multiple PPC screens:
New PPCAlbum select (*ADDED 16/7/07*)
Also that can be found in the .zip file is a PDF document on requirements and setting up the skin.
There is also a FONT directory with required fonts, applications directory with PervHub and kXd with example .ini files to use, and a plugins diretory with Xpert.dll plugin. These all require relocations to proper places as defined in the document.
Decompress the .zip within the Xlobby/skins directory. There are some small bugs, and the spider overlay remains to be completed, but overall it is functional.

-added alphabeticallized categories from 0 to 9 and A to Z. Databases are to be named group#, where # is either a number or letter (from 0-9, a-z). All music files are to be in their own alphabetical directories. Both album pages and ppc pages have been updated.
**FINAL UPDATE 12/9/07**
-This will be the final release of this skin. I am now putting a halt on all development of this skin as I am deciding on a newer version, and I'm thinking about how to make it all flow currently.
New to this version:
-Taken out all the Now Playing screensaver functionality. Though I think it cool, what Buddabing has done, for my use, it was rather impratical, so I took them out.
-Added additional music selection/playlist control in the PPC screens, since the PPC is my primary access point. Clicking on "Function" when selecting album tracks will open a small window, which will allow the user to either play/que tracks and play/que albums. In the playlist screen, I added a small overlay which allow the user to delete tracks from a playlist, move tracks up/down etc. I've also allowed users to rename playlists to their own liking.
-Attempted to add a new plugin/function called xMusicovery, developed by Dgemily. I haven't played around with it for a while, so it is very early in the development stage when concerning my setup. It could work very well in a dedicate HTPC though. The main files reside in the applications directory. View the skin events for details on how the buttons operate.
-Started the preliminaries of adding ShoutCastPLS control. Files reside in the applications directory.
