Lately I have been working on porting PM3.HD to Boxee.
http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/1883/screenshotresurgence3.png

It is still pretty early in development, In the end it will look kinda different and feel kinda different, but still be pretty familiar as much will be essentially the same.

TO DO:
*Port all windows <--DONE!
*Add boxee windows <--In Progress
*PM3ify all new windows
*Rearrange the settings window
*Integrate social stuff
*Take out all non-boxee functions

I will update this thread as progress is made.;)

There doesn't seem to be much traffic through here, but I think there may be a few who'd like to be updated as progress is made.
I am giving my brain a break from xml for a day and I decided to whip up some boxified graphics.
So here it is. this is the way I am going to make it look by default...

I know a lot of people don't like the green in boxees default skin so those people may be disappointed to see that I am making my skin pretty green. On an upside, once themes are usable in boxee PM3.HD themes will be pretty much 100% compatible with Resurgence.

Oh BTW, I am working on replacing the background images too (like the little kitties).

Lumi,

Awesome work. Any suggestions for others to modify or create their own skins?

Well, when it comes to porting an xbmc skin the only words of wisdom I have is, if you know how to code for xbmc skins then you know how to code for boxee too. For the most part the old windows(xmls) can be copied and pasted from the xbmc version.
I am sure if others where to take on the task of porting a XBMC skin it would prolly take less than a month, depending on skill level and time available, and I guess if you are planning on making it much different than the original.
Then there is the task of cleaning up, and there will be LOTS of that.
If anyone has a specific question about porting a xbmc skin feel free to PM me.

BTW
I am making this one a bit different than the original so don't expect this to be out in a month. As it is boxee doesn't even have the ability to switch to another skin, so I think I have quite some time before I can realistically even release this.
Soon I will be working on social stuff so stay tuned for more screenshots.
Thanks for the kind comments:)

I definately will get in touch with you and maybe others on the team as it is ready to be rolled out. A few things need to be done to Boxee itself before this could see a proper release.

Also, I will let people know when I need some testers, just know that it will probably be at LEAST 1-2 months from now.

When the skin is released it will come with 3 colors to choose from. yellow, orange, and green (default). I am not willing to make others just because someone doesn't like their choices. The reason I chose these colors is because they are the colors I have seen the Boxee logo in.

I cooled it down a little on the amount of color...

The orange looks pretty good in ubuntu.
Yellow hasn't even been started.

I hope this satisfies the green haters enough.lol.

Illuminaughty
April 6th, 2009, 03:09 PM
I personally have never been interested in Aeon at all. I am also not too into media stream. My favorites are PMIII PM3.HD and when I am feeling nostalgic maybe MC360. Maybe when I am close to finished with PM3 Resurgence I will help someone if anyone else wants to take on another port.

I was just talking to someone about how I would prefer the PM3 skin to the current boxee skin. It's damn near flawless. I just with they hadn't moved the file manager from the main page, it took me a little while to find. Anyway, thanks a ton for doing this, it looks great, and I love the green, especially the toned down version.

Illuminaughty

Yeah, I completely agree with you. I have a hard time with the default skin, this will sound kinda weird but I do like the way it looks, I just dont like the way it feels. It just doesn't suit me.

As for the PM3 Resurgence, the reason I have not posted any updates is because real life is temporarily REALLY in the way. Tonight I'll get a chance to do some work on it though.
Long story short, I have had people stalking me at my house and everytime I go outside. I been in car chases with these crazy people. And I've been getting all kinds of hate mail from them. So now I am gonna move across the country for that and a few other reasons (roadtrip). LOL I know that sounds nuts, and like gang or mob crap but it is far from that. So as for this skin, it is a priority but the last couple weeks got so out of control that I have little time for it.

I may have some updates and screenshots of the some of the social features on the homescreen.
And I have put back in a slideshow into the homescreen ala PMIII! I missed that.

Ha.
That is close enough, 2 chicks and 2 dudes.
Complicated long drawn out problem for over 2 years now built up into WAY too much to handle. 2000+ mile drive for me!

And when I get there no internet for a while so it may be a bit longer before I end up releasing this skin.:mad:
But I can assure you guys this is getting closer and closer to being good enough for a release. I'd say no more than 3-4 months considering what all is going on with me.

To all that were following this thread and are wondering whats going on with this skin.
Project Mayhem Resurgence is still being worked on. Looks a little different. Lots of work was lost on a bad HDD, SOME was not lost. So now I have it on an open SVN. Lots of the views have to be reimplemented. LOTS still needs to be properly converted. LOTS of boxee specific windows still needs to be done.

(colorful themes will be available within the skin too)
After losing a bit of progress I decided to SVN the skin so maybe somebody who knows about XBMC skinning will come along and lend a hand in things.
So please, if you feel like you are qualified in helping to get this any closer to a finished product, drop me a PM.

BTW- Keep in mind that this is not a direct port of PM3.HD to boxee, it's more like another Project Mayhem flavor.

I like the black...really suits my personality for sure :)

Some questions:

1) Is there going to be fanart support?
2) Are all the internet apps still going to be present with the AppBox?
3) Are you going to incorporate HD flagging?
4) Will there be an option to have social networking on or off?
5) Will there be a "Recently Added?" I personally love that!

Thanks for any replies :) I would also love to test it for you on my Mac Mini!

Illuminaughty

1) Is there support for that in boxee right now? I am pretty sure that it has not made it's way into boxee as of yet. Lots of views and stuff like fanart is really on the backburner right this moment. (focus on that more when it is closer to fin)
2) Yes they should work just fine. Each app is skinned so when an app is created the creator can choose to design the looks to their personal preference. Hasn't been tested, but it should work.
3) Once again, when boxee supports this it will be added. (the work is already done by jezz_x for PM3HD, just waiting for boxee)
4) That is already somewhat implemented. (still havent finished the 'social guide')
5) 'Recently Added' will definately be there.

On a side note, I wish boxees skinning engine stayed up to par with XBMCs, makes things a bit tougher. More regular updates would be sweet!

I will need testers when it gets to a point where I am comfortable with releasing Project Mayhem Resurgence, but in the mean time I am looking for a coder that can help to see what needs to be done/fixed/added/converted and help to do them. I need alot of the boxee_windows redone:(

EDIT- right after I say something about updates, there is a new version out! And windows looks like it is finally public. No more Hardy Heron support! I also didn't see anything about media flagging support or fanart support. People need to go to getsatisfaction and let it be known that WE ALL want support for both of those.

Are media flagging and fanart not supported in boxee or in boxees default skin? If someone can take the guesswork out of that it would be appreciated.

People that want to test this should PM me now, I already have 3 testers lined up and I would like about 7 more. Only PM me about this if you are serious and would/WILL give some feedback.

Not much has been done since my last post, but I figure I would throw a few more screenies at the boxee fans anyway.

NOTE: every image I post is and always will be screen captures from Boxee NOT XBMC

I am working out the problems with thumbnails thats why the thumb isn't appearing:)
I'd bet that media flagging is also in there just waiting to be taken advantage of!

@ unisonband- for the past week and a half or so I have not had internet access because I moved (again) and have been VERY tired getting this new house in order, got my baby boy on his way (about 7 weeks away). So I haven't done squat for that week or two. Today is the first day I can really get back to coding:)

@ huck2332- Patience. Things are still missing and I took the skin off SVN until I get the keyboard dialog finished along with adding sources the boxee way, and get the few new view modes finished. Will prolly go back to SVN in a week or so, then anyone can download and use it (and when that happens it still wont be at a point where I'd want feedback for bugs, but it will be prematurely available).

Just for shits and giggles, right now I am using the local laundromat for their free wifi to type this, lol.

Thanks for kind comments guys!

What an amazing design... One of the reasons I loved XBMC was for the amazing skinz people made and only switched to Boxee because of the centralization and community support... I would love to see some skinz... I just hope there is some centralization of all this as well... Because some XBMC skins are just well... Silly... LOL AMAZING LOOK... Keep it up...

All, the OP hasn't posted since July and has since become a new father; also I believe re-skinning the beta version would require the work done so far to be scrapped and for him to start again from scratch.
