Weather skin teaser

Postby rika on Fri Apr 17, 2009 12:52 pm

Thanks Steven for all the bug fixes lately!
I´m on skining patrol again. Here are some teasers for you all...again :) (Big weather png:s runing as background that changes with the weather and day or night.)
Comments are always wellcome ;-)

Some new features are fanart backdrops that are grabed from http://www.themoviedb.org/movie

Image

I also found an easy way to set all the databases depending to the user. Ex. I just click my name and all my favorite movies are filterd (the blue heart in img.). My wife and kids do the same to music, movies and so on. Four different user name can be changed in the setup screen. (More info on this later)

More later... :D

Pure class, very polished!
I sat here wondering how u did the DVD case but just figured it out...nice idea.

Fanart, been watching the guys over a meedios with their Fanart importer, do you manually add them to your database or have you written a plugin?

Wow xLobby users just keep raising the bar.......there is another effect to mention, the windows media player used in the videos multi menu can also take advantage of the new reflections skewing tools, so real video can also change perspective.

Thanks! :D
As it is now i just grab the fanart with the google spider (i just specifiy the search a bit more) actualy works rather good.
Maby we could upload fanart to the xlobby server and grab them from there (Wes? Steven?).

Yes, add Fanart to the xlobby movie spider as an option would be great...opens up nice skinning possibilities!

Rika,

Next week I will have some updates on the integration of the fanart into the current V3 spider system. Are you going to complete this skin concept. :)
