Very nice! Im at work right now, so I cant download it, but do the icons move side to side in response to your selection? I have thought about implementing that before, but I never knew if it was possible.

Either way.....great lookin skin. good job beerchug.gif

I absolutely love the horizontal menu, jooks awesome.
really like the font too.

I just find the background a little boring, it isn't bad it's I just personally prefer themed backgrounds with cool art... I think Koldfusion's Punisher skin is the best out there.

I noticed my soundtrack title is too big for the window but that's no biggie I guess.

I hope more people use these horizontal menus, looks ace smile.gif

Dude. If THIS isn't cool art, I don't know WHAT is.

There's a little bug in the skin, or with MXM in the way it renders or something. My menu, has 5 submenu's, then 4 little commonly used actions for me. So it goes:

Applications
Homebrew
Emulators
Retail Games
Misc
----Dash
----Action Scripts
Shutdown
Reboot
Power Cycle
Reset Menu Cache

Ok, so when I scroll through to the bottom, the icons for those last 4 actions get extremely fucked up. They are off center, and somehow manage to take up all 5 slots on the skin (If I remember right, folder Icons in the skin disappear when going to those actions aswell). But, it only happens if I go to those first, and not into say, the games subdir. I got pics on the xbox of it, I'll FTP and up 'em to my site when I can bit later tonight.

EDIT: I forgot to say how much I love this skin, the icon idea is fantastic, and KF did a great job on the BG and intro..

I know about that bug with some types of icons getting messed up.

That's why I removed the folder icons, because they showed up the same way.

A possible workaround for this is to have atleast one app/game in the main menu.

To BenJeremy: Can you see why it is doing this?
I' using <Primary source="verified"> for each of the small thumbnails (those are actually 5-item menus with the rest of the stuff hidden behind the image) I'm using "verified" to get constant menu width so scaling works as expected, and thumbnails line up. However, in main menus, if there are no "items" present, this causes scaling to mess up. Going into a sub menu and back out to the main menu fixes it. Try looking at this "debug" skin to get an idea of what's going on.

Dunno... but I'm going to soon include a menu scroller gadget, and allow indexed references to the images (previews, thumbnails, etc...)

I also have something special planned for the menus that will be very slick indeed.

In the meantime, I'm working on the new input system, for inclusion of a real virtual keyboard (oxymoron, heh) and possible mouse support. I might even play with voice input, but at the very least, all the keys will be assignable.

OK, no worries, this is just a hack anyway, until the new menus are implemented.

Ok, well meh lazy. So, I wont bother posting the pics, unless you want me to, since you already know of this bug.

thx, might have been a little better if geniusalz wasnt rushing me wink.gif

G actually did the intro, plus a few tweaks on the background and I agree, the intro turned out awesome. Goes to show the ease of use with After Effects if your a current photoshop user.
