I know MS doesn't want the skin to be released with their logo or startup animation, but could the two be released with replacement instructions somewhere else or seperate? I mean the original look for XBMC looked identicle to Win XP MCE's little media thing.

just a suggestion. btw, what ever happened to Britneyspairs?

leeloo5,

i understand your yearning to replicate the startup on the X360 for MC360, but a lot of effort has gone into creating a startup animation, and although I am not aware of the specifics of what was changed after the e-mail from MS was received, it would be courteous to Team Blackbolt (TB), and "creatively correct" shall we state, not to ask how to replace the stamp of this team's great effort. No disrespect intended - I understand your "creative" outlook and personal preference to emulate as close as possible the actual startup, but it just seems "unjust" to the team this early in the stages of pre-release. I personally am proud of Team Blackbolt's efforts and will be more than happy to be reminded of their countless efforts as their logo is displayed, and of the greatest XBMC skin is loading. smile.gif

STOP!
Although I'm planning too to investigate if it's possible or not to 'adapt' the default MC360 skin/sounds I would avoid to discuss this topic here.
We don't want to block the skin development due to copyright issues, don't we? rolleyes.gif
Someone better locks this...

For anyone wanting to change / add anything it will be just as easy as doing it to PM3 you just won't have the original graphics to modify. So don't panic if you know how to skin you will be fine.
@Cr4z33 havn't you even seen the option to change sounds in the settings menu

Sounds are easy, but I don't see what everyone is all worked up around. The whole issue of moding the xbox is that "hey this cool stuff exists, but were not going to tell you where to get it, but if you do get it, heres how to use it." Its not hard to find an image of the 360 logo on the web, and it'd be easy to swap it in. It'd be one thing if it was the XBMC logo (which I might put instead of the blackbolt one), but I went to lengths to remove xecuter from my x2 bios because it looks kind of dumb.

I'm sure XBMC skin editor will be able to do this, but if its as easy as changing the startup logo in XBMC, that would be even better.

leeloo5,

i concur with "personalization" regarding skins and icons and sounds - i use the icons for games that i've read on this forum, they're great! And they will sooooo nice with MC360! I honestly like your idea, I would just think that asking to change TB's startup logo would make it seem awkward for them, since it can be misinterpreted as "Thanks for the skin, but how do I take out your watermark?" Again, it's just a thought, and no disrespect intended.

Btw, you are using the new icons......right? smile.gif

what icons? I make my own icons for each game by putting the box cover art on a green xbox case template i made in photoshop and putting the thumbnail in the directory as default.tbn.

I don't know what icons you're refering to. I don't really hang around the boards, just a little on the AV area a while back.

leeloo5,

you make your own icons? Very cool. smile.gif

The link listed below is in xbmc forum. I put this link not as "off-topic" but a compliment to TB skin. They can be viewed it's in ActionCorp's "trailer 2" presentation.

http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=492450

There was also an action for Photoshop that was availble to download to make icons. Very nice of the person to make that available for others to contribute.

Let me know if this info helps.

I liked what kotix did with the orbs skin, so i made something similar (with an action in photoshop too) to put the covers on green dvd cases.

here is an example, i like how it works:
