I have been developing on the XBOX for many years, longer than anyone else I see around these days...most of my time was spent in XBMC but I am approaching the same amount of time now in CoinOPS....im going back to my roots at present and it feels great....Source
I once helped develop feature after feature within XBMC and believed in it.....modding then took off and when I saw what the general users really wanted and all the real problems they had the products around, I became aware that most people wanted something different....they wanted something that just work...looked great and was easy to use....
I realised that just because you can add stuff doesnt mean you should.....apple created the ipad and this did less than what was out before it....but it succeeded. Why? well this is simple really....it preformed what people wanted in a way that people loved....it didnt try to do everything....it was designed around the user and not around technical ability...for years adding features was what people wanted but when tested really they wanted a producted that did what they like in the easiest and most stylish way....
This is now my focus and has been for years...many people I know now love this focus...
Ive heard alot about me and why I do stuff....I do it because ive observed the common user...I used to think adding everything was the way to go myself and clearly I was wrong....I do this for myself, my family and friends....ive seen many come to believe in this way forward by the praise I get from around the community, with nearly every site saying CoinOPS is the best emulator on the XBOX and in truth it pretty much does everything...
Alot of people question me or my skills...I know what I can do...I did all the new videos....I did all the graphic design...alot of the coding(95 percent) and achieved what I setout to do....I do what I feel like at the time and its more than most...I do packages...skins...icons....coding, you name it, I do it....most people that question my skills are the type of people that fail cause they dont know its a matter of focus and drive....im not scare of my skills or lack of them...if I really want to do something I would learn....
My passion now is in updating my dashboard solution.....and will be for a while....and im betting ill achieve this and others will be questioning how or why I did this a certain way...but it will meet my vision and this is why it is done the way it is....
This is my vision now for DRAGON....turn on the power and you will see the beauty that is at your fingertips...never knowing the powerhouse that is driving it....feel secure that you can leave it with anyone without getting any questions and knowing they wont break anything no matter how hard they try....
Onwards and Upwards......
Peace all..........in the end no one will tell you if your right or wrong (only a few will) the real vote is when your not around and chatting at the water cooler....this is where I listen the most....
