OK First Of, Hello Everyone, Have Decided After A Long time Of Being A Guest In These Here Boards to finally Register, Quick Intro To Me:

Modding Boxes For About 2/3 Years
Not A Coding/Photoshop Design Guru
Mostly Customization Work
First Ever Customization Was A Few Megadrive Game Skins For UnleashX, Built & Written In UnleashX (yeah in the text editor with the controller)

I Love XBMC, And As Soon As I Got A Decent Net Connection (About 6 Months Ago) Have Been Seeing This App At Its full Potentiel (My Spelling/ Grammar Sucks, Forgive:sadSmile.

Anyways Back To the point;

I Have An Idea For A Skin For XBMC, Which i Have "Dubbed" XMC.

It Will Be A Hommage (in a sense) To where this all started, "Ye Olde Xbox" And Will Be Primarily For Gamers, But Hopefully Suit The Needs Of Movie/Music Users

Basically A Bit Like A Good Cross Between The Stock MS Dash, UIX And The Default Orb Skin For UnleashX,

Hopefully I'll Have Some Mockups Done Soon, (like i say my photoshop skills arent brilliant, there ok, but not brilliant so for now i may have to use paint) Which Ill Upload soon, But Basically Im Looking for Some Help Coding Wise.

Awsome, Splendid, Bobs-your-uncle...

Now To Wait...

Ok, Well Its A Bit Like The Xbox Classic, But Has The Orb And Styles Of The Stock XBox Dash,

My Friend NickyZero Is Currently Making Up Some Mocks For Me, He Should Be Registering Here Later Today;

Imagine The Home Screen From "Containment"; But With The Xbox Orb, And Menus Around It... If That Helps

Home Screen, A Big Orb/Ball/Globe Thing,

Simmilar To How The "carrosel" (spelling?) mod works for xTv, but the ball rotates with the menu... and thats as far as i can figure, mostly because im not even sure how easily that can be coded... But lets see
