Trust me, its WAY better for the project that the team isn't up here posting all day like they used to.

Just wait until it's released, it's better not to see screenshots or any videos.

Peace

It would be nice if the team did an announcement on a monday to the effect there will be no release this week, it would save me from checking everyday.

Then dont check every day... I used to too, but having seen all the hysteria that was caused earler in the month, realised that this aint exactly going to change my life (sorry blackbolt). It is a skin, we can use XBMC quite well without it, other skins are pretty cool too - just relax, keep doing what you do (when not worrying about this skin) and when it's out, then download it, donate to blackbolt and the team if you like and enjoy!

I use XBMC lots of the time, and think it's great - I am looking forwards to using MC360 when it is realeased, but am not going to lose any sleep over a delay - if it came out today and had problems then how many posts would be here saying that this bit doesnt work, or that bit isnt right... We dont even know what stage it is in - maybe it works, but there are a couple of bugs, maybe there is a big part of it that is not yet implemented... just relax and let the devs get on with it.

Sorry if this is a bit of a rant - getting fed up reading some of the posts lately biggrin.gif

I'm trying to figure out if people are just that dumb when they say "Gimme gimme gimme" settle down and go watch grass grow or something. Honestly I'm pretty sure you have more important things to do then spam this site waiting for a skin. I'm personally awaiting XBMC 2.0 a bit more, the skin is quite the perk on that note.

So just untangle them whitey-tighties and wait it out like the rest of us

i was going through my xbmc...and i figured out that its 2.0.....cuz i have this so call skin 360...(its like tabs at the left side) and i select that one...and it said that xbmc only supported skins for versions 2.0 and up...and this is a new xbmc..i got it like 5 days ago....well the point is that i think i have xbmc 2.0, but not from the original makers, from tech..or cvs..idk...but the screens have like animation...i think it would be perfectly compatible for mc360

Reminder about MC360 Release Date

Just a quick reminder to those that don't visit the site often, MC360 was delayed, almost 2 weeks ago now, the delay isnt that great, probably only a few extra weeks, but just a heads up for those that come visiting still expecting a release tomorrow. We won't set a new date, but we will tell you at least a few days before its going to be out. So keep checking back soon, it can be anytime now..


Taken from his site. So why wouldn't guys keep checking? Obviously he doesn't have to give us an update, but it seems like the courteous thing to do.

That isn't XBMC V2.0 - T3CH is just the name of the guy who compiles the code.

k3n85: As TeonHarasymiv is saying what you've got at the moment is the latest BETA of XBMC v2.0 compiled by a person called T3CH who isn't the only one, but is certainly the best known person who goes to the trouble of compiling the XMBC source code on a regular basis (many thanks to him for making our lives easier love.gif ! )

Yes, if you've got the latest T3CH build then effectively you do have an almost complete v2.0 beta version of XBMC, including enhancements that the programmers have made specifically to support some of the requirements for mc360.

There's been an amazingly close collaboration between XBMC and mc360 people (some actively work on both) which is one of the reasons that this skin is able to do soo much more than previous skins (as well as the fact that this is a 'team' built skin, not just a single person...although Blackbolt is kind of chairman, and started the work, hence the prominence of his name.)

If you read around this and the main XBMC forum you'll find that officially XBMC is in feature freeze, so the beta you've got should run mc360 now (subject to bugs or things we don't know about...but that build is what Blackbolt and co will be testing on atm)

Saying that though it's always hard to feature freeze XBMC when there are soo many good ideas floating around, hence things like a new Python library sneaking in there on latest T3CH build...which they've admitted is likely to initially break some existing scripts.

XBMC people really do have a hard choice as they want as many features cleared off the wishlists, but as stable as possible release, so that people who don't upgrade their XBMC that often can stay with this version for a long time. Officially everyone is still recommended to be using the v1.1.0 which was released in October 2004!!! (without DVD Player)

XBMC v2.0 isn't even NEAR ready? I was under the impression it could be released almost any time....
