Sorry for the false start guys. Work and life has thrown up some delays! Doing some renovations on my house (yesterday, this weekend, and Monday), so will try and wrap things in the evenings, or early next week.

Cheers for being patient. Wink

whens the newest release rolling out?

LOVE LOVE this skin... just wish

a) option for bigger fonts... / better use of real estate so all text wasn't tiny. it looks good close but impractical in living rooms.. i think a lot of skins these days could offer this just to make sure space is used well and not too cluttered as if everyone uses this just for their pc.

b) visible volume up+down

c) if possible a custom submenu... maybe a more larger display of fan art background but thats not a must.

a + b would make me very very happy.

marker for watched episodes and extra colour schemes would be very nice too...


optional home screen (aka for anime) would be wonderful.



but yeah honestly SICK SKIN, lovely concept, so minimal yet fast and responsive whilst still looking very professional!

Major Props Poofy and Eskro! Check out their sigs for the best help/advice.

Hey aoaaron,

Regarding fonts, it's a tricky one (and a general common complaint on the skin forums!!). I can only push the font size to a certain limit before areas of the design goes out the window. I'll be reviewing them again at some point. Wink However as a note, on my 40" from 3m, the font sizes are ok. And i don't have amazing eye sight! Big Grin

To keep the skin clean, the volume bar is only visible when turning up or down. As mouse use isn't supported, the need for it to be visible all the time isn't necessary i believe.

Custom menu items and different colour themes are on the to-do list!

Cheers Wink
