Hi everybody!

I have been watching MediaPortal closely for a while now. Been wanting to contribute with something, but unfortunatly my busy schedule doesn't allow me to do any hardcore programming. However, as I had the day off (sick) I've been messing around with the BlueTwo skin which is by far my favorite skin and I wanted to make a variation of it. I did and I think it turned out pretty good 8)

I feel that the skins now available for MediaPortal don't really have that slick professional look that makes people go WOW!!

I haven't asked for permission to use any graphics from the creator of BlueTwo (awesome job BTW!), if you read this and wan't me to remove my version of your skin let me know.

I haven't changed any of the seperate graphic-files, only the compressed "packedgfx" files. Hopefully it will work anyway. I also have no idea what the TV section looks like as I don't have a TV-card.

Enough talk, here are the sceenshots:

Hope you guys like it!

    nice work...my tv tends to be a bit washed out and the white just doesnt look quite white to me in the bluetwo skin...hope the contrast difference between black and white in this skin will make this look better :)



    jontaz1000...if u like u can upload this new skin onto the new www.team-mediaportal.com site ....so others can find it and u dont need to waste your bandwidth :)

    Every new skin for MP, is a good skin. We need more of them.
    And this one looks really nice! :D

    Thanks for the response!

    I have now polished the skin a little bit. Found out I forgot to alter a few things like the myTetris buddy icon and a couple of other things. If your myTetris icon is blue instead of gray, just download the skin again.

    I will make a 16x9 version of the skin early january.

    If you have any suggestion how to improve the skin please write!

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...

    I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...
