So what is this free pre MB3 code you speak of cause all my Themes are pre MB3. Doing a simple comparison between the MCML the code is identical even down to the spaces with the only difference being one name really. There's even MCML code in there which Chocolate never had nor any of the other themes. So that's all just coincidence?

The code I'm referring too is the old google code, diamond or vanilla or something like that, but only as a way of learning mcml, and some code from stackoverflow or at the time expersexchange when i still had a subscription, of some of the old themes that where available, which went into my old personal themes that I've never released, since i don't have the original throg mcml, I can't do a direct comparison, but my theme, is basically the new chocolate with a bunch of views that I edited to mimic some of the throg views, in fact all of the management is basic chocolate, the rest is custom code, with api calls and a bunch of other stuff from kodi views, i'd bet there is still some mcml in my resources file that isn't even used from my old Manhattan theme which is why its so bloated, and even some code where i'm trying to read the old throg config files so i didn't have to re-do all my settings from scratch. The original Throg themes where excellent, and i only created mine so i could still use media center the way i wanted too, until a better theme came along.

Quite honestly that is laughable you didn't even change the names of half the things...  What you have MicrosoftSucksTimer as well???  WallBounces??? Hell on one page you just stripped out all the license blocking stuff except the LicenseTimer, and you even left in my Debug UI in too boot which no other seems had.  Image reference names are common even all the of my menu interfaces functions in the MyConfig.cs.  Do you even know why there is a function called TestThumbSize???  You have funcitions in your MCML which you don't even have in your MyConfig.cs so the program will just crash because you stripped things out until your "ready too implement" them...  There are so many numerous things I could point to  such as off screen images in identical locations, even your Plugin.cs is a copy of my skinning and sound changing (which BTW I got uproar from the community about).

 

So your basically telling me all these things are just coincidence and that you got all this from old code,  I find it really hard to believe...

Interestingly if i search "wallbounce mcml" in google i get an interesting hit, in fact depending on what i type in, based off that search, i get quite a lot more info, in fact if the code wasn't archived by google code, it would be a lot more visible, so i could see how a few years back someone looking at mcml info would come across this.

in fact... https://code.google..../default/source isn't that your entire source code ready to download? and even export out to git-hub?

 

Took me 2 mins to find this just by googling the bits of code you've highlighted and mcml, its been in the wild since before September 2011.

Exactly my code, and all he did was strip out the licensing portion of the code and make a few tweaks, so this BS that it was from other projects other than mine was complete non-sense, and his "re-implementation" is basically  just un-commenting sections of my code which he just understand.

 

My issue as I have told ebr is that charging for it as a premium plugin is wrong.  Making themes that look like mine I have no issue with, hell many of mine were inspired by XBMC but I didn't go blatanly take there code.  I wrote it up myself to look similar.

And the code he took was from a much later date anyways and I've already send @ebr the proof (more like a 2013ish) probably decompiled from one my latest DLLs.
