Hey guys,

Mc360 is still my skin of choice, its so rock solid and customisable.

I was just looking at the MediaPortal development (linux xbmc port) page, here:


and noticed what an awesome view they have going in MyPictures mode.
The current image highlighted in the 'filmstrip' is displayed above in a bigger size, in a frame.

It looks very complimentary to the image, and gives you a nice idea of the image before you hit go and get it full-screen. Not that I'm complaining.. but this is a nice idea I think, because xbmc tends to load images (depending on size of course), averagely, a bit slow and you're waiting a second - 1.5 sec before the image fades onto screen (full-screen).

Are there any plans for such a view in Mc360 skin?

Same answer as always.

MC360 was designed to mimmick the Xbox 360 Dashboard. Since MC360 has passed its final stage, design changes will not occur. MC360 will only be maintained as to work with the latest versions of XBMC. The look of MC360 remains the same as the Xbox 360's look. I don't want to compromise the layout by adding every new feature other skins come up with. Our next skin 'eX' is the main focus and thus all new ideas will be considered during its development. Thank you.

title: ??
subtitle: MC360 will not be changed to look different than the XBOX 360.

post: what you said above, + "if you'd like to see something that isn't a regular part of the xbox 360 gui, ask about it in the MOD section."

or something like that.
