INTRO
It was innevitable! I had to do a Vision2! So Microsoft inspired Vision1, This time around Sony inspired Vision2. I'm a big fag of Sony products. They are all black, sleek, shiny, simple and all around sexy. So I kept that in mind the whole time while coming up with ideas for Vision2.

FEATURES/IDEAS:
720p HD This skin was made for 720p from scratch. 4:3 will not be focused on. Simply because Jezz_X and I dont feel the need to focus on 4:3 since HDTV's are so common now (Both Jezz_X and I have one)
Navigation The one thing I concentrated on most was navigation & layout... You will notice this anywhere from Home, to Views, and all the way to the Keyboard.
Library Mode Library Mode has been kept in mind while designing the skin. So the layout will take advantage of all Library Mode has to offer.
FanArt (As I like to put it: Super Duper FullHD Wide Icons!). Skin will support FanArt, and future Music FanArt (Please Agathorn!)


VIEWS:
Note: These are Library Mode views. Offline views look more simple.

Custom Background

DVD, Pictures, Games, Music

These links couldn't make it because Xbox-Scene only allows 10 pictures to be shown in a thread biggrin.gif So click the links to see the pic
Music OSD This is the PM3 OSD. Re-Done to Hi-Def and ultra sexy
Music Info This shows information gathered from Library Mode


MISC:
Note: No pic for these next ones, sorry!
Keyboard Took a lot of time to think of the idea, but the layout is really good on navigation
MythTV Not sure if it will get added (Since neither Jezz_X or I use it), but I do want to support it for those that use it!
AMT I have a basic idea of the layout, not final yet...


PHASES:
There won't be any phases like Vision1. There will be no 'Beta', 'Alpha', or 'Final' build of Project Vision2. All minor & major updates will be done via SVN unless Jezz_X & I die

FEEDBACK:
I didn't want anyone to really know about this skin until I was comfortable enough to know it will be finished soon... Which is where we are at now. We still have things to do with the skin, but we are at the point where we need feedback from you guys. Let us know what we're doing wrong, what we're doing right...Both negative and positive feedback is wanted. So, what do you think?

Looks very nice, as expected man... funny how your views with the wide icon on top and the text on the bottom like the games view can be so simple and yet totally different than any other skin... Good work. I like it alot. I think that your video info and picture views are especially well done.

I just got a macbook and as much as I love it, for the life of me I can't get any svn client to work... so for the first time in my life I'm seconding the direct download link idea...

Ok let me step in here with all the talk of downloads this skin is only about 50% to 70% finshed (I havn't actually checked) first thing that will probably happen is it will go in the SVN (at some point not now)uncomplete but useable (for most stuff) so if people really want to try it they can.
If someone wants to zip it up for other people (non windows users) thats fine but I won't be providing an official download link until it is finished completely (execpt KAI tongue.gif ).

That's gorgeous!

If I had to critique it, I'd say a couple of your gradients are a little off (the tv show view with the Battlestar Galactica banner, the dialog looks like it bends at the bottom about 3/4 of the way across) and in the music info view there is no artist thumb but I'm really searching hard for things to pick on to come up with those.

I love the main menu idea, it's really original!

The one thing about PMIII that I don't like is the OSD (it seems kinda cartoony in comparison with the rest of the skin), so it's a shame you decided to keep it (I can totally understand why though, recoding that thing is a bitch!)
