Rapier - XBMC by tvnca Rapier - XBMC by tvnca
The goal is to provide a simple to use but clean and elegant interface that focuses on efficiency when browsing your media. Important considerations are put on usability, performance, and providing the user with flexibility when it comes to customization. Rapier tries to support all the latest features XBMC has to offer as long as it fits in with the skin's design goals.


Rapier v4.00 RC1 (16-Aug-11)

This will probably be a quick RC before it goes final. If you find any bugs/inconsistencies please let me know.

If you have a previous version of Rapier installed, it is recommended that you reset the skin settings by going to System->Skin Settings->Reset Skin. You might also want to delete the Textures.db file in userdata->database of your XBMC profile directory.

Check out the readme.txt for full installation instructions.

For a full list of changes, check the changelog.


If you have any support questions post them in the forums.

Awsome work, I was wondering though any chance of supplying the background and colour codes used when taking the screen shots displayed on the xbmc website?

For some reason on Xbox, version 3.06 and others doesn't give me that 'wall view' that i see on the screenshots. I only have three views for all of my categories.

Ok, I've read in another forum that Library Mode is how you get those other views. Any chance you could add them to the regular file views because Library isn't working out for some of us. I mainly want the extra views for my games and pictures.

Hey man, love the skin. Been using it for about 4-5 months now. The main view that I use is "Wall". In the last version, you had the rating at the bottom, but not the name of the movie. In this version (V4.00 BETA 2), you added the names of the movie to the bottom, but removed the rating. Can I please see this in the future? I will be using your skin regardless, just wanted to see if you could implement this. Anyway, thanks for the awesome skin!

Just gotta say that this skin is amazing. It's so much better than the default themes and I was so glad to see that you'd updated it! Also - the change from grey to blue is very welcome!

Honestly, this skin is what makes XBMC's otherwise clunky interface tolerable. I want to see this in Dharma!

This really is an amazing theme (mostly because it is so functional) and even thou I try other themes, this is the one I am coming back to. Thanks a lot.
I do have a request if it's possible. Can you upload the source file (psd probably) for the home category text? I want to add another category and it would be very useful.
Thank again!
