Is it currently possible to make the video files have transparency? If not, is that a future possibility? I think that would be awesome... I started making a few skins, but haven't been pleased with anything yet so I haven't released anything.

A few suggestions on what I would like to see on that skin, but they probably aren't best for the skin... but hey, it's an open forum, right?
I'd move the circle and list up a bit, move the time and date to above the hard drive free space box, then stretch the music box out like you originally had it on the ConsoleUI skin. I loved that design! Also, maybe a cool clock or calendar "bubble" for the date/time? Dunno.
Another awesome looking skin! I can't wait

One more... don't know if this is possible or not, but I'd replace subnet under network settings with some type of "status" indicator. Don't know if there is a variable for that or not, but it'd be great. I can't tell you how often I'm transferring something from the computer to the box, and I'll go downstairs to the tv and think "I wonder if it's done yet so I can play a friggin game"
Anyway, that's all I got.

Ok. lol. I've been working on my own skins for a few days now, most look like something my dog just ate and didnt like. So i gotta ask, where are you guys/girls (in case their are any here) getting the icons your using? By icons i mean the little xbox, head w/ ear phones, those kind of things. lol. i got some good ideas, but without any icons the skin looks like shite.
Jan 4 2004, 05:40 PM
like this? I cant find any better variables then subnet atm.
added to AXSOriginal Blue Version
& Above Green Version

There are quite a few sources for icons on the internet. You can even download tons of PNGs for some PC utils ( something like YZ DOCK or MOBYDOCK ) and you can use those rather nicely in Photoshop and change the color etc.
What I love about PNG ICONS is that they are already with a transperant background - so alot of work for cutting out the icons is already done.

dunny another great skin, i like the time and music box adjustments. would it be possible to add video previews in the cirlcle where the game icons are displayed?

Dunny, simply awesome!!! Can't wait to get it on my box!
Edit: I know that somewhere in the system information there's a line that is something like a network status. It may be like bytes recieved and sent. Don't think that there's a variable for the skin tho. Thanks again!
Jan 4 2004, 11:42 PM
DF99: Thanks for the input. I found a good number of nice .png's.
Dunny: Nice skin.. lovin it.
As for this skin. Well it's my first that's been posted online. I usually get dissatisfied with them before their finished and hock 'em. This one in my opinion is ok. As you can see it's very basic. Let me know what ya'll think.
Game List has 1 backed up game because this is my new box, still stock hd.
Also it hasn't been uploaded to AXS yet. We'll see how it goes here.

I put the skin Chromulus on my xbox and everything works fine, except the menu doesn't spell out the selections. It will have the first 2 or 3 letters and then ..., for example my games list looks like:
Anyone know how to fix that?
Jan 5 2004, 01:42 AM
Reboot your xbox.
Jan 5 2004, 03:35 AM
rebooting the xbox wont work with the new version you have to fix the width attribute
it should be like this for Chromulus
<Position Top="120" Left="120" Width="400" Height="275" Fixed="False" FixAt="1" MaxItem="8" />

just working on some loading screens.
Jan 5 2004, 05:16 AM
Thanks tweagr, I figured that was the problem. I tried adjusting those numbers, but i only changed them a little bit, so it didn't do much.
Jan 5 2004, 08:05 AM
sorry sleepinginmyhead, my mistake.
Jan 5 2004, 08:31 AM
I've added loading screens to my Green, Blue and Red Athloni skins so they match the skin colour. The updated zipfiles are on AXS now

other than that kick ass.
I thought the same thing, hope you don't mind Dragonforce99, only updated one file >HERE<
I could clean it up but I just wanted to see it.
Jan 6 2004, 04:34 AM
heres a place to get some icons
looks good but i think it would look better if the info spots were darkend rether then lightend and the wite text seems a little out of place mabe a light brown or dirty yellow would be better.

Nahh I don't mind. Actually that is pretty nifty, I like the result.
Jan 6 2004, 12:17 PM
I just made my first skin ever, and as anyone else - im proud and wants some feedback!
I got my inspiration from a skin posted on allxboxskins.com so if you have seen a similar skin - its there, and I would have credited the man who made it, if I could remember his name!
Well, here it is... hope you like it!
Jan 6 2004, 12:44 PM
Just upped my first UX skin to AXS...it's called "New Project" (they're an Aussie industrial metal band)...should be up there soon. Any input appreciated!
Let me know if you want more, I like skinning and I've got a few kool designs I could polish up and get onto AXS...
Jan 6 2004, 03:23 PM
Isn't it Gloria GaynOr?
Skin looks nice; very utilitarian.
Jan 6 2004, 03:31 PM
great skin ... do you mind if I make one similar?
Jan 6 2004, 03:51 PM
You go ahead dunny, i'll give you permission this time.
Jan 6 2004, 06:00 PM
Well, go ahead... but use your own graphics!
Jan 6 2004, 06:02 PM
Jan 6 2004, 06:07 PM
people who uses others graphics should be stoned...not by smoking
with actual rocks...maybe it will knock somthing into place in their retarted heads...
Jan 6 2004, 11:05 PM
very nice skin, i think i might put it on my box
Jan 7 2004, 12:13 AM
Great job Dunn...what the.... hmm... i see...

Please stop stealing.....
We need a sticky in this forum or something
Jan 7 2004, 05:55 AM
I have just made a great skin even better... but if people dont apreciate my work, i can just keep it for myself!
Jan 7 2004, 06:20 AM
well i have to agree yours is much cleaner looking but you should ask the Original auther befor posting anything about it and make sure the credits are clear as to who the Original auther was.
Jan 7 2004, 06:54 AM
ive got some skins i was working on as well but it dosen't look like im going to be able to finnish them anytime soon, if anyone is interested in finnishing them look me up on msn or aol and i'll send them to ya,
Jan 7 2004, 07:06 AM
Here is another ICON resource page. I love this funky stuff!http://www.foood.net/icons/index.htm
Actually, they look very different to me. Sure, it follows the same theme, but (as far as I can tell) all of the graphics are original. He hasn't simply plagiarised, like some others do.
Give credit where credit is due, but in this case, I think you guys are giving him more flack than is warranted.
Oh, I forgot to mention... The skin looks great! But you should post your skins in the pinned 'UnleashX Skins' topic.

WHY WHY WHY CANT YOU PEOPLE BE ORIGINAL!!!!!! this is dunnys skin no matter how much it is changed.

|WHY WHY WHY CANT YOU PEOPLE BE ORIGINAL!!!!!! this is dunnys skin no matter how much it is changed.|
The way Dunny have arranged the text and icons are very good... which is the reason why I used the very same layout - but ALL graphics are made by me from scratch, so its not just a replica of the original skin!!

one question, what dash is it for??

Jan 7 2004, 06:50 PM
great site, I grabbed that UK Flag wallpaper too which looks ace!
Jan 7 2004, 07:52 PM
I was just wondering if there is anything I can do to keep the skins from being cut off. I know tv's usually cut off some of the picture, but from the preview pics there's a lot of space between the edge of the skin and any text. Yet, most of the skins I have the first/last letter or so gets cut off, and I was just wondering if there is a fix for that besides going in and changing the position of the text manually. I know XBMC has a screen size adjuster, is there one for unleashx?
Jan 7 2004, 07:54 PM
nope thats all you can do at the moment
