dont worry, someoen will come along for you guys and get it done Smile Hopefully they can pull it off

Thanks for the great response, NineT9mustang. That all makes good sense except the last part, quoted above. 480p is widescreen mode, the same as 720p and 1080i. This means it can fit the exact same information as 720p as long as everything is scaled properly. My TV can display 480p and 1080i, but has no automatic conversion from 720p. This is common in older HD tv's. I've been able to get Aeon looking 99% correct by just adjusting the sizes in Fonts.xml, since it's really just scaling things differently.

In an ideal world, XBMC would automatically scale widescreen fonts the same as it does the images. But alas, it's not there yet. Smile

Umm yeah it does here is a screenshot taken in 480p with xbmc auto scaling the font since the skin only has a 720p dir (bare in mind I didn't rescale the image to the correct aspect ratio)

Damn nice looking skin NineT9, if i could produce anything near this quality, I'd be happy!

As someone who uses "Vision", Im really looking forward to seeing how this turns out,

Shame im a 4:3 user, oh well should be starting new job soon, and this seems like a good initiative for a better TV!

The only thing I am noticing is that the OSD doesnt really fit the design of the skin. Something similar to the layout of the skin would be MUCH MUCH nicer.

Yes I'm 360_Hax on X-S.
