pretty neat, looks like it's going to be a good skin
i think i know what you mean by animations, but it would help seeing that in action

by animations i mean an intro movie for each section, as you see in the first 3 shots there are 3 frames of the small halo2 movie for "myprograms" section.
animations are avi files converted to gif images.
i'm still looking for small avi to use in myfiles, mypictures and settings, if anybody have an idea or a link for something usefull please let me know.
cheers. :thumbsup:

nice, though suggest you add much stonger high-lights on the item selected or one won't be able to clearly see which item you're on when scrolling/browsing on some tv's

the only suggestion i'd have is that having the rss feed inside the orb may make it difficult to read since the ares is so small in length... you may want to move the feed to th ebottom of the screen where you can scroll it the full length.

Smile hahaha, is there anybody outthere who doesn't know angus? (just kidding)
i used those animations because they were the first avi files i found or i have at home, i'm still looking for something to use for myfiles and mypictures.(helps are appreciated)
for settings i'd like to use the original ms startup animation, what do you think??
the rss feed is not that much shorter then the project mayhem one.
does anybody think it's too bright?? on my tv the home page is fine but the other sections with almost the same background become almost unreadable.
p.s. i'm really happy that gif images don't take so much resouces now, you've got to see them! Smile
