on movies top level... or tv top level.. any of those "library screens" PLEASE PLEASE give us paging/skipping ....  maybe pgup/pgdn keys on kb and something equivalent on remote.. "channel" or "page" whatever...


This is one of my most wanted features as well. I'm not sure I have access to all of the keymappings to do this properly, and due to the responsive nature of skins in ET it might be near on impossible for me to count the number of rows of media items currently on screen so that I can scroll the correct Sumner of rows.

I'll certainly look into it, I may be able to come up with a middle ground, but I'd sure like to see something to handle this in the ET core.

likely related to resolution
 
on my surface pro 4..  100% dpi set.. windows 10.. res is full res for this device - 2736x1824  (yea i know i know.. my poor eyes)
 
et is "full screen" taking entire display
 
https://www.dropbox....-06-07.png?dl=0
 
 
see the "crowding" on the left bar.. and the 3 icons top left... doesnt match the intended look im sure..


Thanks for the screen cap! It helps!

This first release was mainly built for 16:9 HD resolutions, as I imagine ET as more of a living room client. But ill see if I can make it play nicer

I've put together a Kodi UI Sounds plugin to go along with this skin.

 

If you want to give it a try, just choose install plugin from url and use this: https://flexage.gith...di/package.json

 

I'll update the original post with this as well to keep things in one place.

The detail screens seem to be lacking the back arrow so I have to use the escape button on my keyboard to go back. Can't use a mouse.

 

Nice work though.

 

Ok, those back arrows have been restored to the detail screens. If ET is running, it'll need restarting to get the update.

Howdy!

 

I just tried installing this and its not working for me :(

 

I point ET @ the link you provided, and then it sits there with the spinning circle for a bit.....

 

It shows then the plugin is installed, but when i restart ET, it's missing again.... Did that 3 times in a row....

 

Is there something I'm overlooking?

I could only get it to install on ET for Windows, not the Windows 10 app.

Bummer, if it doesn't work with the Windows Store one, does that mean it won't work on the Xbox1?

I get the same spinning circle when installing the picture screen saver plugin in the UWP app and then when I close the app the plugin is gone also.  They may not be compatible with the UWP apps

I'll do some digging and see if there's anything on my end that's preventing it from working on the UWP app

Are you planning to add different skin colors/themes?

 

I've just released v1.1.0 which adds a selection of colour schemes to the skin

 

If you need instructions I've updated the change log on the OP with some details

Quick question about this feature, and also themes in general. Is it possible to have different themes/theme settings for each user?

Just wondering, on the Home screen, there's Genres etc across the top, then Latest Movies, then Continue Watching. Should there be any more under this ? if not, seems a bit unnecessary to have the items shown in Continue Watching disappearing off the bottom of the screen.

To be honest, I'm not sure, I think that type of stuff resides in the Emby core, not in the skin.

Saying that, from what I've seen whilst building the skin I think you can at least have different skin settings for each user. For example, both Bob and Mary use the Flextuary skin, but Bob has a blue colour scheme and Mary has a green one.

If you mean why are there both a Latest Movies item in the top bar and a latest movies row on the home screen, then it was more of a personal decision.

We like to be able to quickly see at a glance the last few movies added but also like to go to a fuller view with the textual overview and runtime.

On the other hand if you're asking whether there should be any more rows off the bottom of the movies home screen then maybe in the future... The default ET skin also shows movie recommendations, which I may bring back once I get round to skinning that part :)

@Luke is this more of an ET core issue as opposed to a skin issue?

It was your 'On the other hand' bit. If your adding more rows its fine as it is, if not then no need, I guess, to cut off the bottom bit of movie posters.
