I just finished the first try at doing a theme for MC360 from the original concept art:

So any ideas?

Looks sweet smile.gif

Perhaps you could give the active blade a more "opaque" look?
I dunno...

Not bad so far. Maybe a different color outside of the blades. Couldnt say darker or lighter though. Quick question though: Is this going to delay v1.0? Or will this be a theme for later on down the road?

BB this is looking awsome, something tells me those stars in the background are doing more than justing making the background look sweet. wink.gif

Only thing I would suggest is making the colors match as close to the original concept art as you can, ie. the blue could be more saturated/darker to add more depth like in the original.

That sure is looking sweet. ! smile.gif

My 360 just ring of death'd on me so I am back in black, and not missing it at the moment due to the fine work carried out by Team black bolt.. The old brick sure plays divx much better wink.gif but the games are now a bit retro..

With so many skins on the go at the moment its a great time for everybody, as long as we all have the patience to wait.... any ideas when blackbolt?? tongue.gif

Sorry I can wait, if I have to wait for my 360 then I can wait for my MC360.. Love the new theme, take it this will be for the new release and not for the current version..

Question: Is it a seperate theme like "Glass" or are u simply using a wallpaper on "Default" theme?

Item selector[panel selector], needs to be inverted I guess as in concept art(2nd one).

Oh, hence the delay for mc360 1.0?

http://www.maj.com/c...ry.cgi?i=375520 --- Can it be made to look just like this --- same fonts & colors!

No this theme is not delaying MC360. MC360 is NOT delayed, because we don't have a release date to delay it to. When we have finished what needs doing, MC360 1.0 will be released and as I promised, seriously, there wont be a release date untill its 100% finished and ready to release.

I cannot use the original fonts. Remember this is just a theme, not a full blown skin, so I cannot change everything. I might be able to start adding previous items in, but that will delay mc60 THEME, not the skin. This theme is going to be one of the first available from Team Blackbolt in XBMC Live Place.

I do agree the colours could be a bit richer and darker, I will take alook at them the nex time I work on the theme.

I'm not too fond of the stars either (even if they're animated), I think they they look a bit cheesy (they remind me a bit of the american flag stars, I don't know why). I think that the stars look misplaced and unconnected to the overall Xbox theme, but the theme looks great anyway. If you need anything else to be animated, I suggest you animate the background light rays, which shouldn't be a problem doing that with some editing/color brightness cycling.
I really love those mixed color gradients, like that blue/brighter cyan gradient in the media tab (and probably the xbmc live tab will be orange/brighter yellow). I really like that, it makes the skin look brighter and modern.

Great work! biggrin.gif

Only things I would suggest is maybe the R button at the bottom, unless this is modified to look nicer (the button may be a bit protrusive) The gamercard might be a little less opaque. and the Icons for Music, Videos, Etc. are different. Those are my thoughts. But besides that I think it looks really nice and clean!
