Nice look. But I feel xbmc has been missing something special since it all started. & that is animated icons, instead of boring old jpg, bmp,png. Wouldn't it be sweet to have animated "GIF" files in the place of your movie icons or game icons? I know I can't be the only explorer here? I am not a programmer, but I am considered gifted when it comes to customizing my skins, & modding xboxs. As for me, Im into presentation.
Good job guys on all your hard work. But until media files or gif's are implemented into xbmc UnleashX will still rule. rolleyes.gif

you can use gif's if you want, but they use up too much memory which is why too many people don't use them.

Also it would make the screen WAY too busy.

thats a good idea, the animated icons... but not "animated" but like the mac dock that when you select it it will bounce or something like that

Makes me feel better, but, you really shouldn't have killed BB that wasn't very nice.

Just out of curiosity, how do you guys afford all this? i mean the work on the skins the man hours and other stuff? Does your team get paid or they just do it b/c they cool like that?

You guys rule, without you the xbox would suck. biggrin.gif blink.gif

What do you mean afford? There is nothing to afford. Everything we do is free. Its a hobby for us all, the only thing I could say was a gain financially is the donations, which was very sub par considering the coverage the website has had and the download numbers, we barely have enough to buy our own domain, which I hope to do soon.

As I mentioned previously, we don't need to pay for anything at this point. We are a team of dedicated coders and artists that do what we do because we love doing it, we don't do it for gain and we certainly don't do it for money. Yes it has taken alot of our free time up, but its happily spent. I admit its been a pain in the arse sometimes, especially before we released our very first beta, but its totally been worth it and I am happy I ever did it.

Thus is the reason I like TeamBlackbolt. Takes their own time and effort to please themselves and the community and isn't in it for such material things such as money and being famous. I'm glad guys like you exist. Don't change this aspect. I appreciate it.
