New Mac-inspired skin preview

Thanks for the post. Is it mainly the red text or do you have trouble with the white as well. Pretty much anything red means I haven't gotten around to editing it yet. Red is nice in Back-Row but it doesn't match leo.

The play pause thing is easy to fix. The options are behind the semi-transparent background instead of in front of it. That whole thing will be eventually changed to look more like vlc or quicktime controls on a mac, so I hadn't bothered to fix it. If it makes it more useable I'll go ahead and fix that

Maccabbi, I only tested the skin in XBMC_4_Windows, but I got one word for it:

"SWEET"

I think next to PMIII, MC360 and AEON it is one of the best looking skins sofar!

I'll be checking in frequently, keep it up!

XBMC is probably the best thing that ever happened to me...!!! You people Rock!!!

The experience on the xbox is much improved on this version. In the last one backgrounds kept not showing up but that seems to be fixed in this revision There are some really great views in this skin and it looks good all round.

The only issues I had with it is that in the home window the pop-up icons didn't all show up. The setting icon didn't pop up at all and the tv and photos icons were occasional. These problems don't seem to exist in the "window" version so I assume that its a memory usage problem.

The interchange between screens wasn't what I'd call snappy but then again it isn't in Back row ether. The last thing is personal preference I think it would be better to have the dark mask in the home screen of by default

I'm looking forward to seeing how this skin progresses keep up the good work

I've downloaded the zip file but there's no build.bat.

I'm just using the Leo folder from inside the Zip I'm not sure what the __MACOSX folders for as it seems to be an additional osx focused build. It seem a wast of bandwidth to include it, maybe just for developers Huh

I modified the xTV build.bat and XBMCTex.bat files. Using those I created a build of Leo with textures.xpr and it works fine in XBMC win32. I haven't tried it on the xbox yet.

Will you add an option to turn off all the skin transitions?

I'll be speeding up the transitions and trying to optimize memory usage. The dock is a real memory hog so I rewrote it and still have a few more things to change on it to make it's foot print smaller. I plan to add an option to turn it off but I am not sure how that will affect its memory footprint. I may add an option to turn of transitions if people want it.

texture files can now be made on os x so I will be trying that out for the next update.
