subject is, game previews like you see in UnleashX
when selecting a game, it plays a small WMV file of the game playing ..

now ToBeHonest im not sure if XBMC supports this feature AtTheMoment, does it ??
if so will MC360 support it ?

if it does not, could MC360 support in future !

cheers Mick ...

that is an xbmc issue, since it doesn't support it now.. but if xbmc would support it.. naturally mc360 would.

The "Game Preview" crap with UnleashX is the most useless thing I've seen. I mean it's cool and all that you can do that, but who the hell would want to spend countless hours searching/downloading/uploading/setting up "Game Previews" only to waste space?

Not this man anyways..

You would thonk so!
However I beg to differ..once all done its amazing how much gratified u will be seriously. Half the customisation we do are just for fun rather than functionality. Its always about the kind of end result.

Unleash does it for you automatically. You just push a button...

Well if you got that attitude then so is this skin for you Its nothing more than eye candy on top of XBMC and you may as well stick to the default skin

That's not a fair representation of the skin. It just so happens to not only look good, but have quiet a bit of functionality to it. To say it's simply "eye candy" is ignorant. It will have features that the XBMC of the past didn't.

Try making a valid point.

Please, stop posting in this forum. Please.

About the game previews, I doubt that they will be built into XBMC anytime soon. If there isn't a script for that already, there will probably be one eventually (or you could code it yourself.)

Too much bitching going on in here, xomp can post as much as he wants, he is a good guy.

Jezz-X has full access to the skin, so he knows what the skin is and has been using it for a while now.

I'm sorry, although I respect your opinions, I kinda agree a bit with xomp here... Game previews aren't very useful or functional, I mean, it's not like you're setting up a kiosk xbox or something, they're game previews for yourself, from games you already know...
