Once i increase the BG size to 576... I'll need to create a new Scroll fader too. So, when that is complete it will auto size correctly and not look out of place.

One little error is the positioning of the Kai link symbol on the 4th button instead of the 3rd (as seen in your image).

It appears that it was using the PMIII posx and posy settings so I've changed them to line up properly for you and also fixed the onup settings for buttons 1 and 4. Just copy and paste this into wordpad, save as MyPrograms.xml then replace the old one found in the Media Center 2006/NTSC folder.

The problem is that he is using overlay images to fade out the button scoller instead of using the inbuilt fade for it.   And when viewed in pal the screen res is 576 high instead of 480 like it in in NTSC so when everything gets scaled up to fit into pal the background images is getting stretched out to fit it but the location of the overlay images are staying pretty much the same so they no longer line up.

Perfectly. Does XBMC have a built-in fader for menu's? Sorry, I never looked extensively at the skinning engine of XBMC.

Awsome improvements. Hades. Good work.
Add the Movie Trailer secton to your To-do list. It shows PMIII skin when accessed. Maybe its just my box.

XBMC's built-in fader did not quite achieve the effect we were looking for, so I created an overlay image to do it instead. If there's a better way to do this, please tell me!
