Hi Guys, first post ever here.

Well I have gotten myself a Raspberry Pi, have had it for maybe 2 months. Using Xbian on it. Its been great.

I'm sort of a graphic design person, have do some logos and personal web site.

Although I like many skins, some don't work great on the Pi, and as we all know we cant please everyone. So I want start a skin for my XBMC.

What I want to achieve:
  • I'm looking to learn how to skin code. Xml. Scripts, and others.
  • I want this Skin to look great on a TV.
  • Fast and fluid
  • Beautiful skin

--------------------------------------------------------
DESIGN LANGUAGE:

I like the METRO design language. I'm a fan on MS windows phone and windows 8. So I will probably try and add some of its characteristics on this skin. I won't make the layout exactly like MS designs, but some of the ideas of it.

--------------------------------------------------------

MOCKUPS

Here's one image I have of a library view.

> Library view - v1 - a mock up I made, I want to have a view like this.

--------------------------------------------------------

I would like to know if any one knows how to make the view on my concept, is it possible to have the Poster come in at an angle?

Please if you could give me a hand would be great.

Looks nice but when I was testing my rpi I found that all the posters was the thing that made it go slow all the time not to mention fanart I would of thought a rpi skin should use less art work.

But maybe that's just me

I was able to download the skin from the super repo website without having to create an account.

@MYEtro: You might wanna change the icon of the skin to something else than "Confluence Horizontal".

Sorry if didn't work fast enough. Works fine in mine, I have XBian on it though.

This is really early build. I will keep making it lighter. When you say all the posters, do you mean in the home screen? I noticed when you go over to movies, and theres recently added movie, the menu gets a bit slow, but only on the first time you do it.

@j1nx Thanks. Yep, I should had done before. will update it this weekend. Did you like it? was is slow for you?


I'm thinking maybe the font rendering in the Media Info view makes it slower, as the size is 60. Might need to change that, any suggestions please let me know.

Thank you guy for downloading.

Sorry I didn't actually try your skin I was just saying while I was trying confluence on my rpi I found that the media graphics took the longest to load and removing them all and making a default icon only skin it went way smoother Smile

Everything is greyed out, besides the login button!

Anyway, hope it evolves in a sexy, but light weigth skin. We need more of those now we have hitted the ARM market.

Thank you for your feedback.
> small fonts, where? the only place i have changed the font sizes is the media info library view. I will work on other views and windows, i do plan to make fonts bigger as i have problems reading on my TV.

> agree with you, i will try and not use dark colours. I kinda want to do a dark/light version, not sure how yet.
Can't wait for more feedback. Thanks

Guys next version is shaping up nicely. Unfortunately haven't got much time lately, hopefully will have something by next w/end. There are so many things still to be changed. Once I get everything changed to the way I want, I will be adding features and fine tuning the design more.
