Nice Views, sincerely i don't like font on the Home Menu. You're are thinking to bring this skin in 720p resolution or higher? Keep it up, good work!

I do most of my viewing on a PC and have no trouble seeing anything clear no matter what skin so I would like to do a version without focusing on everything being so large. From the start I have been working in 720p in anticipation of that.
But it has been very time consuming getting the SD version finished.
I like the blocky font for the main menu. I am in the process of adding an alternative font set to the skin though.
I have a few color sets now working on a couple of alternative font sets
After adding a new standard fontset I am starting to agree with you
I made the other main menu font with a fontcreator prog from scratch so I am a bit invested

Lookin pretty good.
Some of those views are crazy! Not in a bad way, it's just creative. Seems like it would be good for the XBMC4Xbox project.
