I was wondering if one of the creators of this skin can help me out, and other with a few answers to sound questions? This will help me, and others create sound packs for the skin.
Whats the animation transition time for the following please?
Opening sequence (Where the blades show and seperate?)
Moving from one blade to another, example Games to Media. To the Right
Moving from media back to games. to the left
Mc360 Blade showing up
Mc360 Blade disappearing
Shutdown menu showing up
Shutdown menu disappearing
Going into tab from blade EXAMPLE from media blade to music tab.
Going from the tab back to the blade EXAMPLE music tab to Media Blade
EDIT I`ve already got a sound pack, but they just need tweeking to the exact timing. But I cant release the sound pack here. Think you`ve worked out what it is lol

You cannot apply sounds to the blade slides correctly in XBMC's current sound engine for the GUI. Unfortunatly there is no way at this point in time to apply sounds to the events you mentioned above.
We will look into this once 2.0 is out and we can work on XBMC more then.

well the sounds I`ve got a pretty close already,and they do match almost, just need a tiny bit of timing doing to them. But at the moment, all of the above have sounds, and they sounds are just slightly out.

Thats great, but as they are illegally obtained and not licenced by MS, the minute you try to distribute them through these forums, link to them or anything similar, we will ban you and remove the links.
MS already been in touch once, I don't want any more corrispondence with them over any copyright issues.

Well BlackBolt I've noticed one thing. I don't know if my other post made it up but I obtained sounds and the origional M$ logo from your April 7th build you just released. I think it'd be a good idea to change those files in that release so they don't give you any trouble. I love the work you and your team has done and would hate to see M$ interfearence in it. I have deleted them from my hdd so they dont get distributed. Just wanted to bring it to your attention

I wasnt gonna post them! I`ve manager to do it anyway. All of the above now have the correct sounds. I had to remap nearly every button, but it works better than the standard buttons and sounds. I had to remap mc360 blade to left thumbstick, and left thumbstick to exit instead of back. B now returns you to the blades from the tabs. Right thumbstick brings up shutdown blade, and right thumbstick now exits it again. I now navigate the blades with the shoulder buttons (L+R) with the correct sounds and timing. I had to edit the keymap.xml and sound.xml a lot to manage this, and I mentioned to a xbmc dev. that maybe if a button isnt mappen then the noise it makes is disabled, so the sound of the dash is conplete. All the timing is spot on as well now, and matches the dash perfectly.
