Post by: Maasbommel on November 19, 2011, 12:53:41 pm
@,

As the X2 with 2.0.0 firmware now has a custom backdrop feature, we can start sharing them.....

Lets give me a kick off.
Attached is my favorite background the moment.

Cheers,
Maasbommel

PS. reboot your mede8er after loading a new backdrop or skin.

will there be more skins provided by mede8er? or is this only supported by users?

We will release the skin info soon together with a competition with some prizes for the best skins. This will really be a community project. Our role will be to assist those with support and I can see us opening a new a New User Group for that.

@Mede8er1 , won't more skins become available if the tools are available to everyone? If everyone can tinker and make their skins available even if they don't have the skills to enter the competition?  ;)

I am happy to release some info so that the 'not so serious' can do the backdrop and changes to the Home Page. If they then feel more confident they can then join the Skin Group.

Cheers Mede8er1,

I'm using this skin, but changed the backdrop photo to one of my own by renaming it the same as the original backdrop image.

Thanks again  and loving my 400x2.

The size of the backdrop is that the correct one?
On my TV it is falling a bit of the screen, the mede8er logo on top, also the Merry Christmas on the left.

Post by: GlynRS2 on November 30, 2011, 06:09:29 pm
I have been playing around a bit more with some festive skins. ;D

I realised that some of the aspects of the Christmas cat skin were too close to the edge, so that they could be cropped if you use the zoom feature. I have therfore modified this skin too.

First up I did a minor tweak of the Christmas present skin:
