Just thought i would share a sneak peek of my new skin Nova with everyone still lots to do as you can see in the video but its getting there.

recently added almost finished wall view also almost finished

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vh_ikY10axE Frown

I am desperately after a skin logo i have tried multiple times to create one but am not happy with anything that i have created my photoshop/illustrator skills are not very good if anyone is keen on creating a very simple Nova logo it would be much appreciated kind of like the one in the video when i go into settings on the video there is a nova logo that i placed there just to fill the gap until i come up with a proper logo

This started as a night mod but turned into something else let me know what you think i have some time to work on this at the moment so things should progress at a good pace i am hoping for a beta release some time in the near future.

Dude, can I recommend you keep the development of this to yourself until its done. The sneek peak looks great, but make the skin how you want it and then release it.

I'm sick of skin threads full of "Can you make the font this" or "Can you make the home scrren look like this" blah blah blah.

Looks great so far, last thing you need is a bunch of amatuers asking you to make them a skin they want!

Make it how you want and then let us live with it!

I was in the same spot what I did was googled "Photoshop Text Effects" and found a tutorial that I liked a used that as a reference. I couldn't think of anything of the top of my head...

EDIT: i subscribed to you and then was I able to watch your video looks good i like it

is your video public or private?

I did a search on youtube for XBMC Skin Nova and got 2 results and neither were your video. I manually typed in the address in my moto droid and ended up with
"video not available"
