This skin-idea is made by theboxhead at media portal how i took by his word
Evereyone is free to edit this skin as they like, so just go ahead !

So i did...
The dragon is from a free wallpaper from the net, author unknown.

I made it for my personal use so it´s all in Swedish. (Language file in english futher down)
This skin is only 1024x768 and i have only used it with mouse.

Big thanks to baddabing hows skins are the base for this. And offcourse thanks to theboxhead at media portal for a great skin idea.
Also thanks to the french team for all the the great plugins and sheared skins.

Steven as sayed before" Your my hero!!"

Some of the icons in the skin are built from the noia icons for KDE.
Made by Carlitus (Carles Carbonell Bernado)
http://www.carlitus.net
But most of the buttons are made from scrath with fireworks.

Some features:
From the menu you can see your collages from an info button. When you que some music in the playlist some info will be shown in the main menu screen
The "now/next bar" will be shown until you clear the playlist.
From music,radio,movies andgames you can add user favourites and in some databases set ratings
This can be used to find your favourites. You can update all your databases in the skin.
From settings you can change the backgrounds to black and from automation you can control your favourite robot.
from pictures screen you can change the name of your pics.
And more...


Ok now for the downloads:

Here (Latest update 2006 02 19 )
you will find the skin. Extract in your skin folder.

You will also need this fonts (in c:\windows\fonts) and this radio genre pics. (in c:\programfiles\xlobbyapps).
If you want a english translation dowload this
language file. (c:\......\xlobbyfolder\language
Start the skin and chose dragoneng as language file and reboot the skin.
If you want this skin in swedish, change the menu database to "menuswe" and reboot the skin.
If you want to make your own language file then just translate the english words in the language file to your own.
The menu database must be translated in the event manager. (edit menu database)
If you get a blank screen in the skin hit pause/break to see what plugin you are missing.
The TV screens are just a rip off from the French team’s skin (xltv plugin) and could use some tweaking to your own likings.
My next thing is to tweak those tv screens to match the skin better (all the dark screens by default)

If you want to tweak this skin to your own likings you are totaly free to do soo.
You could usethis layerd png if you use Fireworks orthis .psd if you use Photoshop.
If you come up with something good, shear it with us here! :wink:


Have fun and tell me what you think...

Looks fantastic Rika, I am very interested in the way you have done the 'favourites' I was thinking about trying to implement something similar in my setup. I look forward to seeing the finished article.

I second that... why don't you improve your Sage STV skills :lol:

Actually, I was expecting someone to bypass Sage's UI all together once they released studio. At least for watching recordings anyway. All we need is a way to export the sage database and feed back the watch, like/don't like status and maybe a delete. Oh, and a way for the player from Xlobby to work with comskip files. How hard can that be?

Rika,

The skin looks sharp. Very well done. Skins like this makes me want to pack in skinning attempts altogether...but it's just too much fun.

Rika,
if you build a language file, it will be easy for us to translate your skin into every language we want...
