To add a counter argument. XBMC needs skins like this. The boundaries have to be touched and passed otherwise whats the point.
I am not a coder and don't have blacklists artistic skills either, but these two things need to come together otherwise we land up with yet another variant on confluence.
If it won't run on old computers and XBOX, well tough frankly.

Ah I see. Well.. by "check it out", I meant actually install it on my system. But since I couldn't find a link on any of the pages, I guess you don't want to have it accessible yet.
You could work via github for instance - that would certainly speed up development/bugfixing.
I've got a question about a technical aspect though: These additional scripts to gather information, how do they run? Are they running all the time in the background, or are they executed on certain events (i.e. like addons).
In case you need some more manpower for python, your best best is to hook me up on freenode (online 24/7 unless server/inet breaks)

Thank god xmas is over lol
I honestly wish that I could help with those chores, but sadly things have moved on since peek and poke days.
I could help pestering the XBMC staff, I'm very good at annoying people lol
As I said before, you are an artist, a true genius but you cannot pour an ocean into a pond.

Yes, like add ons. We have modified some existing scripts (random items and recently added) and are adding a couple more. Some are like tsr and are always running, but most just fire when called.
And no, the skin is not even remotely ready for consumption by the masses yet!

Boo! How can you stomp on my hopes and dreams this way?
I've got an alternative plan.

I'm very excited for this one. My girlfriend is too. We can't wait until this comes to fruition.

This is the single most amazing looking skin for XBMC ever conceived!
If you need any help bug testing, I was a game tester for Mindscape years ago and work in IT currently. And I'm happy to help!
Regardless, this skin looks unbelievable. Kudos.
