You know what, I was thinking that same thing too, as I'm pretty bad when it comes to drawing up my own images, and I encourage anyone that uses my skins to do what it takes to make them better for their application. Drawing buttons is finally getting easier, but I kinda wish I could do my own menu icons.

I'm now cleaning up the navigation, deleting all the extra screens not required, and all the extra events. Trying to get it down from a 15meg file to around 10 meg.

Also have to finish off the user manual, as it will be required for understanding the menu system.

Expect some teasers in the next couple of days, with a release most likely by next weekend, if all goes well.

Very nice work Grooby!!! Wow...I'm very impressed with the Techno skin so far.

This may bring back some of the key people that were lost. Colby, Baddabing and such...

This is a fantastic skin.

Please excuse the noob question, but how do I use the search window? The search function finds the titles of the movies I search for, but when I close the window I either get an empty list or an unfiltered one.

Click on the name of the film you have just searched for at the top while still in the search screen, it will then jump to the film you want.

I tried that, clicking on the name of the film in the top window. Nothing happens. The search screen remains active, and there are no changes in the screen itself. Used both the touchscreen and the mouse.

On my system, the Category tab is empty, and I'm unable to edit it. Something wrong in my configuration? I'm using latest download (March 4, 2007).
