Holy macaroni!!! The skin's shaping up hella nice!!! Everything looks so polished. And the animations IMO is a great touch. To bad ur not supporting the nightly builds with the initial release. Hope u add support soon. Real soon.

Wuav! Really nice! And nice to see some in-action footage. I can agree with the other comments, classic border and few less animations as big_noid suggested, or at least more subtle animations, ie on the low list view when navigating. But that's just my opinion, you seem to be very creative in your skin, so who am I to question your decisions
Keep it up

Wow, so far I am really impressed with how this skin is looking. I am really eager to try it out. It looks like a lot of attention has been put in every detail. Lovely.

this could really end up being the skin I use

Thanks everyone. I'm glad that other XBMC users have interest in Metropolis. Sorry about it not being available for Eden initially but I'm wary of messing up my HTPC at this point, at least until Eden is a lot closer to release. I currently use OpenELEC with Dharma and everything just runs perfectly right now, no problems whatsoever. I want to at least get this skin a lot farther along before playing with Eden. It will eventually be Eden compatible, though.
Regarding the animations, I'm going to play around with different ones at some point to see what the skin looks like. I'll also look at some other skins to see what is being used on them. To be honest, though, when I am using it I tend not to notice the bounce that much.
Yes, I tried the latest beta (v2.20 beta 5) and double checked that I had all the options set right but no luck on the sound. It could be something with my old main computer's hardware. Either way, it's still a great program for the price. Thanks again.

Just a quick update on the previously mentioned clear cases & animations. I have removed all the clear cases in favor of the classic cases (see the preview below). I've also removed a lot of the "bounce" animations and reworked various other animations that, I think, makes the skin a little smoother. Obviously, I will post an updated video when possible.
Note that the image below shows one of several different themes I am working on that I hope to include with Metropolis. The skin should be very easy to create alternate themes for, just as can be done with Alaska Revisited.

In the top picture, where you have title, runtime and genres on the same line, what does it look like with a movie with plenty of genres and a long title so the text have to be cropped? I hope it doesn't look too "crowded".
