Let me introduce you to the team building Xperience:

Rocky5:

Without this dude Xperience wouldn't even exist to be honest, the skin started out with a bit of coding from an individual who has moved on to a clone skin of Xperience. Rocky5 has busted his ass with the coding to an extent I can't even explain. Working with Rocky5 has taught me a lot about coding but his knowledge of coding and of this skin is above and beyond any other I have ever seen.

Arcanthur:

Arc is now our lead designer, originally he has worked on a couple of skins from here, but his work with Xperience has surpassed anything skin-wise he has ever done. Thankfully Arc's skills get some use with Xperience as he has some of the best ideas I have ever seen, and usually takes ideas Rocky5, or I might have and makes them better.

XBMCG33K:

The Xperience concept was originally my idea and ever since meeting Rocky5, and Arc, this concept has turned into a reality that's evolved into something much much more.

Lookin Nice!
I would love to see a skin made for XBMC inspired by NXE. NO CLONES! The interface could be so much better than MS's

That actually looks very nice. The only suggestion that I would make is losing the "A" and "B" buttons as there are fewer and fewer XBOX users and more and more HTPC users. Great mockups. Cheers.

BTW- If it becomes fruitful, I would suggest you consider MXE (Media Xperience Enhanced or something similar)

My goal was to make it as simple a version of their UI as possible. I like MXE Was also thinking of JUST Xperience. Smile

I hope there is a coder out there to help I know nothing of it. I'm much better with GFX than I am with coding.

Good suggestion. I like the buttons alot for the Xbox. I believe it's possible to have HTPC and Xbox Versions, right? something like Jezz_X's 101 skin?

Thank you so much!

djh_'s skin seems to incorporate the round edges. Smile Hopefully a coder will be able to figure it out. I'll post a Home windows with and without button's soon.

It can be easily done using diffuse texture.

The mockups look great. You should create a complete texture pack for coders. I am sure someone will give it a go.Wink

That looks like it has a lot of potential Smile I also agree, I'd love to see something INSPIRED by microsoft's dash, but really have no interest in seeing a clone (which it doesn't look like you're doing, i'm just saying). To be honest, I find their dash rather unintuitive

Yeah this is inspired for sure. Smile My goal is by far not to do an MC360 type clone (No offense TB I loved the skin always) But to more put my own spin on it if it were maybe my own idea, and was for XBMC not the 360. Whis is why my goal is to keep everything simple. I'm in no way going to make it cluttered with 10 different view types and so on and so forth. I want this baby to be simple, clean and nice on the eye.
