Ok, I think it’s time for a first release.
Vinci was made as an answer to all dark graphics/skins we see these days.
I wanted to create a classy timeless skin without too many web2.0 influences.

Some Stuff:
  • Only 720p is supported at the moment, I have no intention to create a 4:3 version.
  • As my xbox is broken I haven’t seen Vinci on a real television, so report readability issues.
  • The video-OSD is not yet finished and playing DVD’s will show parts of the original PMII skin.
  • I’ve included weathericons. To use them, put the .rar in the xbmc media-folder. Don’t forget to backup the original weather.rar!
  • I think the most essential functions are skinned. But I’m not a xbmc poweruser so let me know if I forgot some really important stuff.
  • The xml is an absolute mess. I wouldn’t advice looking at the code. tongue.gif It also contains a lot of unused PMII xml. (Vinci is based on PMII)
  • If you want to help create/update this skin, please contact me by sending a PM/email.
  • Skincredits are in the skin.xml file.
  • It’s not my homecinema you see in the picture, it’s property of Mauce, a Dutch guy living in France.smile.gif

I'm not sure how it looks in 16:9.
I only tested 720p and 720p is the only supported resolution at the moment.

720p is a 16:9 resolution. 1280 x 780 pixels. Unfortunately, my TV is only 480p and 1080i so I am probably not seeing as good as it really is. Oh well, its still pretty nice.

Word of warning guys the skin has no Login screen xml file so you wont be able to get into xbmc without reseting the default skin unless you turn off login screen before using this skin

Looking nice so far. biggrin.gif

I didnt get the hour part of the time though?, and I thought the black bar at the bottom was going to have the visulisation in, but it doesnt on mine.. could be my load.. or you havent done that bit? Whatever it does look refreshing.

ps. Im running 720p biggrin.gif if that helps?

No offence....But weak skin. Doesn't work on basic tv. Should scrap it.

I wouldn't create a skin here If it wasn't compatable for all user. & If I had the coding experience I could do better.

skin looks nice from the picture but it would be cool if it was compatible with regular 4:3 TVs. I realize the designer has no intention of making it for regular TVs but hopefully that will change.

There he goes again, talking shit about stuff. It's Le0n's skin, so if he doesn't want to make a 4:3 version he doesn't have to. We are lucky he shared what he had with us.

If everyone here used 16:9 and only you used 4:3, I definitely wouldn't make a 4:3 compatible skin wink.gif

When I get a 720p TV (sooner than later I hope) thats all my next skin will probably support too. And as far as I know thats the main resolution that eX will support when it first comes out 4x3 is an after thought
