I realise I never finished off that skin I was working on a few months ago, and in some ways I didn't complete it simply because I wasn't all that happy with it.

I started over new a few months ago and just recently picked it up again when nes asked me if he could have it. Hopefully everyone likes this.

As it is, this will appear in the next release, however there is still time to change some things if everyone tells me they absolutely hate it or have any suggestions.

Here's a look

Main menu--

The cartridges are the zooming animated logo

Rom browser--

You'll notice the brightness of the blue lines shifts from the right (main menu) to the left. With the fade effect this looks pretty cool, like turning on or off a switch. Also, The bar at the bottom where the full name text appears is the 'character animation'. It 'ejects' from the bottom when you go to the rombrowser.

Here is what the rombrowser looks like with preview image--

I still don't have a music track picked out, so any suggestions (with some possible links) would be great.

Thoughts, suggestions, love it's, hate it's-Always welcome.

(Also, here's a sample preview of a mario and metroid version I've done as well, which will come out in a bit if people like them).

Mario-- (the menu selections will go in the biggest star and the mushroom will be the animated logo).

Metroid-- (the menu selections will go in the largest orb of the charging blast, the metroid will be the animated logo)

I realise people might be sick of the characters haha, but I couldn't help myself, I thought these turned out well.

If you can point me in the direction of some images, I could do that. I have no idea what the jap carts look like. I'll check out google and see what I can find.

Japenese carts and euro carts have the same design same thing goes for the console.

I was hoping to find some images showing carts from different angles but it's not easy. sad.gif

I really like this, but I also really recall liking the last version you were working on.

Any chance you might release both?

I love the first one. It's clean, and number-crunchy yet stylish. It's also Generic in the good sense that you can play one game without launching it off of the skin representing another game. A skin that looks like a computerised interface for this rather than a single game. I love that sort of thing in a skin. The complex touches set it over the edge in more than one way. This is actually probably the best skin I've seen in a long time, exactly the way it's shown here. If you modify it in any way I request to also keep this version.

The others are superb examples of your favorite and popular themes here too. They're all fresh and clean looking, with a pop to them. Try not to change them too much if you don't have to. From an onlookers point of view the art looks completely crisp and finished for all of these. I second the japanese cartridge thing if it's possible, since it looks cool... But only if it doesn't break the exact look that any of these already have. Thanks again for providing us with fabulous art designs for our classics

Very very hotsex skins man. Thanks so much.

Is there a reason that the Metroid skin has 3 notches next to the logo in the upper right corner? I don't really mind it, but it just doesn't match the way that the other 2 skins are.

maybe you could put in a little cameo of the lesser known Super Nintendo 2?

No reason, it's a work in progress image. Some things that have been changed on the other skins haven't been changed on that one yet.

@ Rotfloljfk, super nintendo 2?
