Are you planning on any updates soon? Thanks!
Yes, an update is planned for release soon.
As it's been over a year since an update was issued and there are numerous features of MMUI+ no longer working (moods from right side of information screen, RT scores, weather, sports etc) can we assume the project is finished?

Is development ended for this?
Is it worth the $15 or is a bunch of stuff broken in it?

The elements which rely on online data feeds seem very fragile and require frequent maintenance updates. Unfortunately that doesn’t appear to happen.

It is also a concern that the installer needs to download a resource file at installation time from a remote server. So future installations are reliant on that server being maintained.

Good to know, thank you.

I have no interest in data feeds.
I'm more interested in menu customization and menu timeout options.
So, I'll research to see if it meets my needs.

It is still maintained and supported. A future update is planned to restore broken data feeds for weather, sports, RT scores, etc. All other features are fully functional.

Does this include any options to customize the guide?

Like, remove some or all of the dynamic-based guide favorites.
Or rename them.

MMUI+ has its own guide that's quite different to the WMC one. For customisation of the normal guide epg123's tweak features are probably the easiest currently supported way.
But for renaming things you'll probably want to edit strings in something like 'media center themer' but that starts to get more in depth.

There are no specific options in UI+ to customize the guide beyond the provided modern theme and various metadata settings. However, you can use Media Center Themer to modify text in WMC.
