Update from Team Blackbolt: Ellipsis (EX) Skin for XBMC
Posted by XanTium | November 4 00:48 EST | News Category: Xbox
 
From Team Blackbolt:


Well its approaching the end of 2008 and Team Blackbolt looks back on what might not be an eventful year for us, but it's certainly been interesting. We recently topped 3 Million user visits, which is staggering. We've had some website issues and we've suffered with lack of updates.

Well moving into 2009, this website will be revamped and made more simple, both to use and update from our end. Also coming relatively soon is the new skin Ellipsis for Xbox exclusive to XBMC, see image below. The skin formally known only as EX (Ellipsis for Xbox) WILL be made, WILL come out and WILL be amazing. While it's still early in development, as it's mainly a solo project by myself as the other team members are off busy with their own projects, I do plan on finishing it and giving it a proper release. So keep checking the site and hopefully as soon as the blog system is implimented I can start to keep you guys updated more often.

Too f*cking late. We already have MediaStream that kicks ass.
You should have released this a lot sooner, or at least delay its inicial presentation. grr.gif

That is a bit of a negative comment, at least he is having a go at making a skin unlike a lot of people who reply to this thread. Even if it's to late, I still give him a thumbs up for trying and releasing it for free.

pffft... If you've not got anything constructive to say about the subject, then please don't bother flaming. Team Blackbolt have done some quality work with XBMC skinning, and they seem to be able to spell as well... rolleyes.gif
Myself and many others look forward to their future efforts. Keep up the good work Blackbolt! cool.gif

hell yeah. I have an xbox hooked up to every TV in the apartment!

50 bucks for a DVD player/media streamer?

So yeah, the work is still appreciated, at least by some of us.

MediaStream is gonna take some beating. I trust this will do just that.

I'm so glad this hasn't been scraped.

i welcome another entry in the xbmc skinning area but do wonder with others how this can compete with MediaStream and Aeon.

i have also taken quite a liking to Boxee as well...but xbmc is still my primary av source hands down...
