To those of you who aren't familiar with it, this is the reFocus welcome screen. (Please see below)

nightd.jpg

The image and message change along with the time of day. There's morning, afternoon and evening, each showing a random image from a selection that represents that time. What I think would be an awesome idea is if we as a community were to add our own images and photos and really make the skin our own. What better way to be greeted than to photos of the things that make us up as a community, right?

If you have an image you'd like added, please upload it to imageshack and post a link in this topic. I'll add it to the skin ASAP. (Any that are posted before 1st September WILL be added for release but there's no deadline so keep 'em comin')

They can be anything, pets, nature etc... All I ask is that they are of a high quality, decent resolution and at least semi-represent a time of day. :)

Thank you kindly,

Marc

    Out of interest can we turn off the welcome screen?
  • El MassmanEl Massman Members, Plex Pass Posts: 585
    These are all awesome guys. Thanks a lot. It's very much appreciated. I'll add them in when I get home.

    @muckyfingers, I guess I could add an option too if you really wanted. It is quite literally the best thing ever though so I really can't see why you'd want to turn it off. :D

    I can understand why some (most) would like it.

    I'm just really not a fan of welcome/splash screens. I wouln't really want you to spend time coding something if the demand isn't there, but I'd certainly turn it off given the option :D

    I like the reFocus welcome screen on XBMC a lot, but there the images are selected with care by Jeroen.
    I really hope there will be an option to only use those...

    Thanks a lot for that! I am really glad to see this skin in Plex, because it's such a beautiful skin.

    Why not download them to a local folder, and set the folder as a custom slideshow?

    Those are awesome, are you the author? If so, would you mind if I include them in reFocus for XBMC?
