Version 8.3 of the skin LCARS (wide screen 16:9; 1920x1080) for MP 1.7.x (or higher) with BasicHome Editor in GUI
The LCARS skin displays all information in the style of the LCARS GUI (Library Computer Access and Retrieval System) known from the TV series Star Trek - The Next Generation.
Therefore it offers amazing animations, and with the original sound it gives you the real Star Trek feeling.
On BasicHome you have direct access to all latest media supported by the actual Latest Media Handler.
LCARS 8.3 supports the use of mouse, remote and touchscreen.
As always, a BIG THX to all MP developers who made a BIG work, to all MP skinners (especially to Harley, cul8er, tgx, joz, joostzilla and PsychoReptile) and of course to all the contributors/testers on the LCARS forum who helped me to improve this skin (too many to name them all...).
Enjoy it - and please feel free to comment on it - especially errors!!!
And now: Engage!

Everything is working greate. I use it with the Mediaportal V1.6 and have no Problems. Only for the stardate plugin you must replace one file due to incompatibilities of the Version 1.6.
The support for other plugins is also greate.
