So....again.............. i release "X"......... i finaly added the 16x9.. i only still have some trouble with
my wrap view 3 it seems to strech the picks... not sure why...

And if someone could have a look at the code.....and just please tell me why i can't properly add a Network location ...
I would like to get some feed back please.....
I'm busy with 720p and 1080i code....
But I would like to get it perfect before i start new code
For now I will clean some code , and try to sort out the problem, with the network , and some other stuff,

I hope you all enjoy this skin.... pop.gif

Why do you keep making new topics for revisions of the same skin?

nice skin. Seems things have slowed down a lot here lately, so dont take the lack of comments personally. As far as some feedback goes, I am happy to give you some, of course, just my personal thoughts on it....

I like the colourscheme, a lot. Works very well. The icons are nice too, along with the fonts. So far so good. The thing i am not too keen on however, is the big x in the top corner. Its a nice enough icon, I just feel it doesnt fit a modern looking skin like this. Its a bit of a retro icon and makes me think of the old skins on evox and unleash. In addition to its styling, I think the icon is a little out of proportion with the rest of the skin. Personally, I prefer the focus to be on functional icons, and not cosmetic ones, and with the size of yours it draws my eye too much, I would probs prefer the text bar to simply run across the top with a more subtle icon, if any at all.

Hope that gives you something to think about, like I say, just my thoughts on it.

I think it looks nice, but the Big X puts me off. Gonna try it out anyway though.

I think you COULD leave the 'X' icon there,i just think everyone is saying to just resize it....make it more proportional to the rest of the skin.....as for changing it altogather there is alot of icons on the web of couse...I dont know....think i would jes resize it a bit other than that though I think the skin is GREAT and I also agree that the color scheem is AWSOME .......deff my default skin on xbmc.....oh yeah and like JezzX said Im jes a leecher rarely do i post anything anywhere.....iv been on the hacking scene with my ps2, xbox ,360,and my psp and i read all the posts and comments....usually jes a bunch of whiners so I dont bother posting....well that and i cant spell!!!! I dont whine about this or that jes sit here reading and quietly enjoying what the scene has so gratiously offered me from thier hard work and spare time.....sorry abit off topic....anyway as you can see by my post count i dont post but i must say great work...oh yeah you too JezzX and all of Team Blackbolt and XBMC

two things I don't like about the X is the fact it looks stretched and the fact that it's a different color blue than the rest of the skin. it really just doesan't go... but anyhow keep up the hard work.

As a thought...why not release it into the SVN, so that other people can take your vision on and improve on it? Just a thought!
