Today we bring you the first of hopefully many XBMC skins created by users outside of Team Blackbolt but hosted here on our site. 'Vision' is a sleak, dark, glassy skin that uses many new ideas never tried before in XBMC. It is a truley unique skin, through navigation and layout. The author NineT9Mustang, has worked with our own Jezz_X since October 2006 to bring you this first beta.
NineT9Mustang has a solid development plan ahead of him, this being stage 4, the first Beta stage. He plans to take as much feedback as possible through emails and the forums to help make vision better for his next stage, Beta 2. You can read more about the features of Vision by visiting the Vision page in the XBMC Skins section or you can click the thumbnail below.

I'd like to thank everyone for all the great feedback I got from the screenshots I released a few weeks ago (Feb 26th). Jezz_X and I feel comfortable enough to let the public try this skin out. The sole reason for this beta release is to get feedback on this skin. Try it out, let us know what you loved or hated. This mostly what the skin will look like in the end, We will work hard in implementing what ideas are feasable, and change what needs to be changed for the better.
All information about this skin can be found at Team Blackbolts Website, everything you need to know, so I will keep this thread as simple & short as possible.
For those that followed my previous thread here your probably wondering what the suprise is that comes with this release, well here it is (Like I said, its small, nothing big, hopefully some of you guys will like it):
Icon Pack (DVD Posters)
Information: With the release of this beta comes a pack of DVD Posters! 500+ of them. I personally grabbed 500+ posters: Changed its dimensions to fit into xbmc perfectly. I also edited all of them, I took away small fonts you wouldn’t be able to read (Like critic reviews), Quotes from Movie, Enlarged the Movie Title if necessary, etc.
Icon Pack (TV Episodes)
Information: Another Icon pack! This pack includes hundreds episode thumbnails to use with your TV Shows. The pack contains around 1,000 Episode Thumbnails from over 15 popular TV Shows. Every Season, Every Episode. All renamed correctly with season numbers, episode numbers & the full-correct episode name . If you plan on using these thumbs Vision, make sure you have your ‘TV Shows’ in Wide Icon View, and your ‘Episodes’ in View2 (Movie Poster View)… Because they look slick with these settings
This is just the beginning of these packs. I will be creating icon packs for a lot more TV Shows (Next will be ALL 18 Seasons of The Simpsons, Friends, etc). I will be releasing a DVD Poster pack with 1,000+ DVD Posters. So check back in this thread for more information.
Well try out the skin guys, a lot of work has been put into this project, and I hope it shows
