Vinci is a complete overhaul of the skin I made way back in 2007.
It was a small success as it looked a bit different than most skins. It was also one of the first skins to be developed for 720p and make use of fanart & colors.
More info about the old version in this thread.

Some differences compared to the old Vinci:
A consistent flow, the skin works more as a whole.
Simple navigation. No hidden dialogboxes. It will make full use of two main changing buttons per window.
1080p graphics.

Early preview at youtube The compression doesn't do the graphics justice though.

I just watch the video preview and I must say that it looks indeed very very nice Smile
It looks quite different from other skins I have seen or tried and I am pretty sure it will add a nice diversity to the current skins catalogue.

Thanks for the responses guys!

A lot of progress has been made in the mean time. The more I work on Vinci, the more excited I get Smile
I'm deliberate not showing new content. There will be another video that shows all features close to the first release.
I do however have set up a feed of the development GIT on my site http://vinci.tera-source.com/ that tracks the latest changes.
So whenever you are wondering if the project is dead, check the feed Tongue

I mainly test on my PC which has an i7 cpu and Radeon HD6900 card and my HTPC (intel E8200 / Nvidia 9400GT) so I have absolutely no idea how it performs on ATV2, sorry. When it's released you can always give feedback and i'll see what I can do performance wise Smile

Just found this thread, and watched the video, this looks to be head and shoulders above the other skins to date. Great work, hope it makes it to full release.
