XBMC Stargate Animated Home Screen
#1
Any Stargate fans out there:



This is done completely within the XBMC skinning engine. This is just something I threw together in a short evening. The animations aren't exactly right and the event horizon texture isn't perfect either but I'd say it's good enough for a proof of concept.

If anyone wants to add this to their home screen here are the files needed:

I would say long live Stargate but SGU is pretty lame Smile the first two were great though and nice effect I assume its just a couple of rotating textures right ?

I'm kind of liking SGU. It's not as campy as the first two and the characters seem a bit more interesting. Though it's definitely not action packed.

It is a single image twice. One is flipped on it's y axis and they rotate opposite of each other and there is a pulsed zoom animation to try and mask it. Not perfect yet but I'm proud of what I got done in an evening.

You know, you combine that with an "entering the stargate" animation when clicking a menu item, and you've got a real winner right there. I'd sure as heck use it.

Surely as you flick between videos/tv/movies etc the chevrons should rotate?

There's a whole skin in this...
Sorry, no help w/out a *full debug log*

Technically no since the worm hole is already established. Though as an intro screen there could be rotating chevrons and the splash when it connects but I think that would take too long to get to the home screen if done right.

If you're talking about the wormhole then yes I've started that already.

Yeah Intergalactic travel is too much for XBMC to handle right now. We have to stay within the milky way due to technical limitations... Yeah... that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

I'm going to go ahead and assume you're a woman... Otherwise... well lets not go there.

ha ha. (ok, crap joke)

Tried to get the misses into SG1 She was really enjoying it as she is not a sci fi and SG1 does have quite abit of humour and its based on egyptian history, so abit of facts there. Then the gould lava pops out of Teal'c stomach and that was the death for stargate for her. Sad

this is awesome!!!!Big Grin
Id love to have this, or any other coll looking video animation in the home screen, in my htpc. Is this something that we have to mod our way to achieve? or are there already plugins that will let us do this?
- newbie here. thanks!
