    I agree with pRoFiT.
    I saw that video too and i also have a wii, you can download the emulator also, its pretty cool. I think you still have a way to go. The wii ui is pretty basic so it shouldnt be hard to outdo them.


    I think you should change the number of buttons from 9 to 6 that will allow you a lot more room for other controls. I wouldnt stick buttons inbetween bigger buttons like you are now, it just looks like the ui wasnt planned out and your just sticking stuff where you can.

    IMO i think you should think about what it is you really want to achieve.

    Emulate the wii menu 100% - you'll be stuck trying to adjust the layout to adapt to carpc needs and end up with a bastard version of the wii menu.

    Emulate the theme of the wii - here you have the most control as it isnt looked apon as being and exact copy of the wii menu and you have the freedom to change the layout to what you need it to be.

    Here is a skin that emulates the theme of the wii menu, but yet doesn't use any actual elements from the wii.

    Here are some beta wii menus when it was still called the Nintendo Revolution.
    Just posting them cuz i think they are cool and way better looking that what Nintendo actually ended up going with. And they would make some cool skins for RR. Not sure why they went with what they have now if they had way better stuff before. I think the wii menu looks a lot better in those youtube videos than in person. Its just too simple with really no details anywhere, but i think they wanted something a 4ry old could navigate. In that aspect i think they succeeded cuz my 4yr old daughter can get around it with no problems.

    Damn, almost makes me want to buy a wii. Damn PS3 multi cell CPU and sleek black design. I only have one game Call Of Duty 3. And that was available for PC, XBOX360, wii and PS2. oh well. UT3 and Motor Storm will be kewl when they come out. They better have keyboard and mouse support for UT3 on the PS3 or im going to be ****ed!

    Anyways, Nice start, keep up the good work. The more skins the better! Im trying to get better at photoshop so i can contribute, but so far nothing "frontendable".

    hey liquid, see on those screen shots, how the list is kinda greyed out, but the center selection is brighter & larger... when you scroll the list moves up & down, but the highlighted item is always in the center & bolder & larger..

    is that possible in roadrunner? kinda like media center menus were I think...

    Dude! You paid THAT for a PS3??? Just don't buy any Blue Ray DVD's! If you do, I can send you some old Betamax tapes to store them with

    Personally, I think you should lay off the Photoshop stuff. We need you WAY to much to keep working on the skin editor

    Anyhow, the button in the top right, in the image above, should not link to that. I think it needs to link to something else (Maybe swap it with the link in the bottom center button)

    The editor is working GREAT by the way! Just downloaded the latest version a couple days ago... keep up the great work!

    What you dont think blue ray will win? They will at least last 6-7 years until the PS4 comes out My father inlaw purchased a blueray player for like $1000.00 and i think hes crazy at least my blueray plays games movies mp3s linux(everthing linux) plus the internet. Almost a perfect setup for a HTPC. Too bad i dont have a HDTV yet

    Dude, betamax ruled. I will take all your beta max! let me know how much shipping is to fresno, california.

    i already have Star Trek wrath of kahn on beta so you can keep that one if you have it too

    I heard somewhere that one of the big reasons VHS won over betamax was the porn industry. Beta was better but VHS had the entire porn industry backing them up. Thats just what i heard it could be wrong.

    My photoshoping skillz suck? Guess i will go program something, maybe an auto photoshoping tool for the skineditor.

    I removed 3 of the buttons and added a bar at the top. Let me know what you think. I am not sure the Wii text at the top fit, but I couldn't think of anything else to put there. Also, the box in the top right is for the current time.
