black mamba, lstar are Thumbgen created Moviesheets with Information Hardcoded on them.
This Work in progress Does Not.
It uses 'Fanart' Image Generated Automatically from the Hub's Internal Scraper and Movie Info Generated Automatically from Hub's created Metadata all generated 'On the fly in Engine"
Aeonish not considered for this as the 'Reflections' code does not work with scale_type="x" which is featured predominantly throughout the Aeonish Hub Theme.
There is no cross-compatibly for existing Themes or Moviesheets ... This works with just standard Hub Generated Posters, Backdrops and Metadata (ie. the movie.xml)
This is a Theme design for a person/people who have never used (or don't have the time to create) Moviesheets.

Hi Joey, I would love to use this version. For me it is just too much work creating moviesheets. Getting the look you showed above without moviesheets is awesome.
Thanks for sharing all your efforts!!
One question - does this method have the delay in showing the background when browsing?

I think this theme will be useful for a lot of users who don't like doing the full moviesheets, just a couple questions tho
Although I don't do the moviesheet thing I have been making the thumbnail covers with either the DVD box art or the BluRay box art. I have been using Tinwarble's template but it uses the png to .jpg trick on firmware 2.07, and most template packages I have used have the transparency of a png image. (I'm not looking to keep the reflection as I know this will be done within the code of the new theme)
What I'm looking for is a boxart template for DVD and BluRay that is saved as the native .jpg so that I could just use the cover Thumbs that Thumbgen can create with the new themese for 3.03 fw.
Also I saw on your Aeonish Revision theme that for the TV shows you had a cover thumb that had a picture form the episode and the episode description underneith, is there a template to get this item and does thumbgen scrape the data for these thumbs somehow.
So will basically use your new "No moviesheet" theme when it is released but create my own thumbs (if i can get the right templates) for each movie and each tv show.
Thanks again for the work on the themes
