Loving the look of this theme. Hopefully once you've finished off the final polish it will be in the plugin catalogue, it could be one of the best looking themes.

Bravo...  Looking really sharp.  Haven't had a chance to really put this through it's paces, but it seems like a solid performer while still looking really sharp.

Please try to ignore the sound of the clock, for some reason it's really loud in the video.

This is my work in progress thumb view, the animations are supposed to behave a bit differently, but I'm just learning how to get them to work right, I'm starting to implemnt progress bars for how much you've warched for shows in progress, like chocolate does but still tweaking it to get it to look right.

Really like how the thumb view looks.  Plenty of info, but you still get a simple look and the background isn't completely obscured, which is always a plus for me.  Comparing the theme to the functionality and inclusion of features that chocolate has is a really good approach.

BeppoMonkeyBoy your doing a great job. I love MBC and run it fairly basic but some more themes are always a bonus. Look forward to the completed theme.

Oh WOW.  My fav already!

 

I have discovered a possible glitch?

 

When in the EHS menu and I scroll over to "Music Albums" and select it, the program crashes.  When I scroll over to it, the most recently added display at the bottom, but I cannot actually go into the Music Albums view.  I can however go into the Music view.

I love the fact that MBC has such an active development team, plugins, themes and a responsive community. I relish new theme devs and hope it continues, shame M$ dont relish the same love.

Well done Beppo

Hopefully the theme devs can carry the look of their themes over to MBT when that reaches maturity.

Something with the files dates 25 and 26 make MBC crash. Using the file dated 24 is OK. I had never used the plugin before trying the newest files.

 

This is an error I find in the log when running.

2015-02-28 09:41:52.7711,Info,,Prometheus (version 15.2.26.2152) Initializing.,1,Application
2015-02-28 09:41:52.8311,Error,,Error writing resource: C:\ProgramData\MediaBrowser-Classic\Plugins\Prometheus\backdrop\backdrop.png  ( Exception.  Type=System.InvalidCastException Msg=Unable to cast object of type 'System.Drawing.Bitmap' to type 'System.Byte[]'. Src=Prometheus Method=WriteResourceToFile Line=0 Col=0 [n] StackTrace= [n]    at Prometheus.Plugin.WriteResourceToFile(String resource,, String fileName,, FileMode create) ),1,Application

That file was however there, so not sure if that is a red herring.

That's odd, the resource to file stuff is for skinning, and should ignore it if it's already there, i,ll do a quick change to fix that to see if it is indeed a red herring, it's very odd, but I know that no two installations are the same so I'll get right on it.

I know its still a work in progress but I love the look so far.

 

Can there be an option to remove the synopsis box from poster view, I can get that info once I enter into the details screen. I prefer just a screen full of images, also a way to resize them to fit more or less on screen.

As I don't use coverart when in the details screen there is no padding around the cover image so it doesn't look as nice as in your example with coverart.

When you are scrolling through the list of cast the disk art doesn't vanish, not sure if this was intentional but it doesn't seem right.

 

As I've said before this is one of the best looking themes I've seen. Congrats on the work, can't wait for it to be finished.

I've uploaded a new version, I think the resource thing was a red herring as the error trapping was correct, had a call to the old method and then the new one which was why the image was there, but try it anyway, and if it didn't work post the log again. And yes you can resize the poster view, use the configure menu and the poster size options up down, I need to do the grid spacing option, and info box on off to do what you want the options are there but those don't work in all the views (yet) and I'm aware that I need to have a look at setups that don't use cover art, as some of my views don't look right if you don't use it

Getting the crash with this version, however don't see the error in the log anymore so guessing it was a red herring.

 

Where does that backdrop.png appear in the theme anyway?

The backdrop is used as a mask on some of the screens it's the theme backdrop which I turn off on my own system anyway, :). Is there any more info in the crash log? Might be something that I havnt coded for yet.

Still getting the crash. The MB log doesn't identify anything but I decided to look at the Windows event logs. This seems to present what the potential issue is.

Just upped a new version, looks like it was referencing throgs original style sheet, as I was trying to replicate some styles, it's odd really because the weather bit dosnt work right, and I don't really like it at all on the ehs, so it's supposed to be disabled, also fixed an anchor error on list view when using banners, the whole thing needs more work

Love this theme.

 

I noticed that on my machine when I try and view the Music Albums view, the program crashes.  I can go into any of the other views with no issue (Movies, Music Files, TV Shows...).  Something about Music Albums.  I can go into it with the other themes though (Subdue and Chocolate).
