I really like it. Especially the views, I think the home screen could look better.
I hope you are going to develop it =).

the goal for me was to create a skin with simplicity and uniformity (something i've been trying to do for some years now). I planned on achieving this by burying all the complex xbmc features and bringing only the essential media stuff to the forefront.

One problem I've had with fanart, ever since it's introduction to xbmc is that it tends to look quite distracting with all the different colors and such. So I decided to diffuse all art with a color and desaturate it a bit in order to unify the look. (this, I think, can be done from within XBMC).

Good job with this mockup, yes you can diffuse the fanart as that's what we do with Xperience. It does work quite well to unify the design.

one thing i'd like to mention if someone is trying to code this is, that atm there is no way to display episode lengths of tv-show content other than for playing media, so something like in that mockups imho is not doable yet.

cheers,azido :;):

Emilio, I can say from the aforementioned experience (and others) that no one can build on this master's work but the master himself. If ever you decide to finish what you've started, I'll do my damnedest to put it together. But having tried it before and failed, I wouldn't dare try to finish it (the design) myself.

thanks djh, I will try hard to jump back into this xbmc stuff, it's been on my mind for some time now! and you're certainly the person I want working on this skin Wink. Your skills are unparalleled given your development track record. From the youtube video I saw, Alaska is closer to the idea I had Big Grin
