And Microsoft will sue the crap out of you the moment you release it just like they set the lawers onto blackbolt until he proved he made it all from scratch

I don't really see how extracting assets from illegally obtained software is a path to inspiration. You've got screenshots, you've got videos, and soon you'll have hands-on experience - what more do you need? I've never quite got the whole thing about assets having legal protection while the design itself doesn't. Surely Microsoft's beef is with the cloning of its IP, not the manner by which it's done. Presumably, the deciding factor is what will stand and fall in court.

I am not dead.
I don't come here any more, because I don't have Xbox anymore, I have moved on to 360 and enjoying the games.

Anyway, you guys must be aware of the 360's dashboard, the Blades.
Team Blackbolts created a version of the Blade for XBMC called MC360.

To tell you the truth, I really hated the Blade, I won't say I hate it, I will just say, I am so freaking bored of it! Especially when you compare it to PS3's menu theme.


ANYWAY...onto the subject.
I dunno what's in you guys mind, but in my mind. I say:
Why Microsoft couldn't allow you guys xbmc for 360!? XBMC is truely an awesome program.

E3 2008, Microsoft announced that, there will be a new dashboard redesign.
It will look exactly like XBMC theme feature.

With the scrolling menu, ability to burn 360 games to the hdd and play them, plus you can view the games boxart on hdd just like you view them on xbmc. The interface looks similar to most xbmc themes, with the transparent look, and scrolling menu.


I just wanted to know how you guys feel about Microsoft using you guys idea.
Microsoft really did it, stole Mii's idea, Home's feature and xbmc theme design.

What a load of bullshit

Ok guys here's the dealio with what happened to me concerning MC360.

Microsoft's European legal team contacted me via email with a 20 page pdf document that detailed every usage of their xbox 360 logo and the word 'xbox' on my website and in the skins screenshots. They asked that I immediatly take the site down till I could make the necessary changes. I acted on that immediatly and took it down. The didn't want their 'x' on anything, which is why I changed it to the 'bolt' logo. I changed all instances of 'xbox' like 'xbox live' and 'xbox 360' to 'xbmc live' and 'xbmc 360'.

Once I had done this, they approved it and allowed me to continue aswell as sending me a very nice letter of approval of what I was doing. I did not have to prove I had made all my textures myself, infact my original 'x globe' was made by myself, but because it was 'in the image' of their original x globe logo for the 360, they wouldn't allow it.

My advice to anyone making this new Xbox experience dash is to make all the textures yourself, make them different enough that they aren't mistaken for being ripped and also don't use any official logos, even if you do create them yourself.

So there you have it, the actual true story of what happened when Microsoft served notice to Team Blackbolt back in March 2006. I'd also like to point out that while I don't share Jezz_X's entire thoughts on the new dash, I don't deem it so great that I'd drop everything I'm doing to re-create it, but good luck to whoever tries it as Team Blackbolt won't be going there.

Continued from this thread....[url=http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=656078]Over @ Xbox-Scene url]

I got some stuff going on but I am slowly getting things done here, and there.

This is a screenshot of the Netflix screen on the new 360 dash......[Image: xbox360_newx_05.jpg]

This is the work I have done for that same screen for XBMC......[Image: screenshot001.jpg]

Still need to work on skewing the dvd wrap view to look more like how it's supposed to.

Feedback and/or help welcomed.

and NO,,,,,Ive not added the stupid avatars (as of yet).

Fourtwenty....looks promising mate. It's always refreshing to see people grabbing inspiration and trying to do something with it. I know that Duncan has just posted a link to his latest mocks, but dont let that deter you from moving along with this skin.

You have a small ways to go with regards to the design, but keep at it mate.

Here's a fairly accurate positioning if you want:
[Image: x360.jpg]
Code:
<control type="image">
      <posx>1122</posx>
      <posy>319</posy>
      <width>430</width>
      <height>322.5</height>
      <texture>test.png</texture>
      <animation effect="zoom" end="39" time="0" condition="true">Conditional</animation>
    </control>
    <control type="image">
      <posx>956</posx>
      <posy>313</posy>
      <width>430</width>
      <height>322.5</height>
      <texture>test.png</texture>
      <animation effect="zoom" end="47" time="0" condition="true">Conditional</animation>
    </control>
    <control type="image">
      <posx>762</posx>
      <posy>302</posy>

Here's a full demo Home.xml. Scrolling right works with animation
This one is nearly perfect.

download and unrar to your skindir
I've used aeon as a base so if you want to switch back to another skin select Appearance and choose your skin instead.

It is just a base for a home menu! not a complete skin.
