i'm here to support this project.

like the blurb explains, this skin highly depends upon high resolution folder.jpg/poster images. i've also expressed my interest in a skin that really takes advantage of screen size when displaying posters.

i've already stopped using the small "tilted dvd box" images for my movies; i've started getting the really high resolution posters in hopes that there will be a skin that takes advantage of it.

unfortunately, i don't use library mode as much as others; but i hope the info button can bring up a screen similar to those 2 first mockups. i feel the image size in the 4th mockup could even be a bit larger and also proves that you don't even have to have text to point out what movie it is; it should all be understood from the poster.

i really do hope this skin becomes realized.

Could you put a 3d dvd box behind the poster?

I just got a chubby...

Very elegant skin my friend... Excellent concept, its not just another regurgitation of another skin or plat form. (at least on the surface)

This is one I am going to be excited about!

Thanks,

Tickethead

Can I suggest (for the time being) that people dont start asking for things that may detract from theDeviL's original concept of the skin. No disrespect to anyone, but djh has not even finished taking Xephyr from alpha to beta and already people are modding it.

Again, no disrespect intended...it's a classic looking skin and I would hate to see this one 'pimped'...if you get what I mean!

I absolutely agree with this, I feel the skin has a very professional clean look to it, now to get it on my box.

I agree, sometimes less is more...

I have seen many great looking skins come out lately that could have used the philosophy of "less is more"...
