Hi guys,

I'm a huge fan of the tilted xbox game box icons for XBMC. I was wondering if someone with the skills to make titled icons, could help me out.

These games do not have tilted xbox icons for xbmc.

Jacked

Star Wars: starfigheter - special edition

Marvel Ultimate Alliance

Jacked especially has no icon, in fact I'm not sure if anyone has done an icon whatsoever in any format for that game. Box art is available online though. This game was canned for north america, however it did come out in europe.

I would really appreciate any help from the pros.

These are examples of the tilted icons I am talking about. Also, this site is great if you want to use tilted xbox game box icons for xbmc.

Sorry that this is a little off topic. But I was looking into using these tilted icons with the Xtv skin, which I think would look great but the icons are far too small to actually look good. I was wondering if any of you guys have any bigger versions of these icons?

Actually they do have these icons with a more viewable picture, but the box art is stretched to fit in the square perfectly, but you do see the box art completely I guess.

As for size if you have get the covers yourself and use modify the action you can make them any size you want like so. (I made this one 512x512 instead of 128x128 )

Woops, also forgot to mention...

The following tilted icons are currently not consistent with the retail box art.

Metal Arms: Glitch in the System

Timesplitters 2

Gun Metal

Yager (The one out right now is the Pal E retail box art)

May I request these in Ntsc U retail box art form?

I apologize if this makes me look like a ####, but its really exciting seeing all these icons perfectly line up on my massive projector screen. pop.gif

Thanks for the site.

The only one I could find with ntsc u retail box is Timesplitters 2.

Yager

Metal Arms

Gun Metal

Are in custom or Pal E retail box form.

These games are not very well known so I can see why the icon selection for them is bleh.

The ntsc u box art for those games are superior. Also, the European rating system logos look terrible on box art.

Thank god the ESRB made their logo somewhat stylish. I think the euro rating logos are bland on purpose because they are doled out by the government. So they have to look bureacratic, whereas the ESRB can make their logos look good.

I forgot to mention, does anyone here remember the Dreamcast pal cases LOL. Absolutely terrible. The instructions were massive books because of the multi langauges haha.

At least Sega spared US gamers by just using regular cd cases. Which they should have done with the Sega CD and Saturn all along... grr.gif I dont think I have seen one sega cd/Saturn game case that isnt broken in some way. Thanks Sega mad.gif

Sorry if this is off topic. I'm just glad we dont have pal in the US. Cant stand the thought of mandatory 50hz screen refresh. UGH! I also remember that the first two years of the n64 release required pal games to have black borders on the screen. Imagine playing didy kong for the first time, with black borders jester.gif

Now you know why importing is so popular in Europe wink.gif
