I like the approach of only showing an icon for the selected item and using text for the rest. It looks a bit more simplistic, less cluttered.

Hello, where can I look at the Xperience XBMC skin for my download? Can you help me I will necessarily have this skin. It is very nice. Thank you :-)

Seriously if everyone keeps posting the same thing twice in this and the Xperience thread I'm just going to merge them and be done with it

To those that are confused, this is not xperience. Beyond the two structurally similar screens (home and movie view...where I left off), it is different, especially in craft and execution. To those that pay attention to the details, you'll understand. Lastly, it's beyond the mockup stage and has been in development for several months.

Skin Concept has my vote too....I'd really love that to be develloped further. On the other hand.....i'm also eager to see what's coming a.t.m.

AGREED!

Now, Those Concepts are something NEW! I Mean, Something NEW! Not something that is... Not new. We've only seen one screenshot of your "surface" but that, and the history with the xperience project, both claim that it will be similar to Xperience. And both are inspired by a GUI from Microsoft, One that I've been using a lot, and doesn't even work that well. All in all: it's not new. Laugh And I remember seeing the concepts Kobe is referring to. That was a "WOW" and goosebumps on places you don't wanna know. Wink
So, Wouldn't it be interesting for all those involved, from creator, co-creator, ex-partner to audience to users, to create something "NEW"?

Just my thoughts. I Know you all work hard on something, I don't wanna step on something that doesn't belong to me.

Didn't see this one. I Pay attention to detail.
So i'm.... Intreeeked. (Dunno how to spell it, so it's fonetic... Damit!)

Never mind my other post here... Well do mind it off course. You're other concepts are still far more interesting I think. Rofl

Batemann, I think those "goosebumps on places you don't wanna know" are not normal and should be examined by a doctor. Also I think someone has some explaining to do as to how they gave them to you Smile

I'd much prefer you work on this:

No offense intended but I REALLY love your concept work on that. Laugh

While I really like the textures you came up with for Xperience I can't help but feel like maybe it's a duplication of effort. Perhaps an alternate texture pack for Xperience when it's done? Up to you obviously, and I must reiterate I love the work done by both yourself and Ancarthur.

Go with this one that design is sweet. Feels a bit like aeon at the moment but I'm sure with enough time put in to it this could be an amazing theme.
