Thanks for the update. I found your skin yesterday while researching the blades dashboard on RGH. I was extremely excited. I copied it over immediately and applied it. I thought  to myself if it had a way to scroll up like on NXE and scrolling sounds it would be perfection. Came back to this post and scrolled down and viola. You are very talented my friend. This is amazing work. It will be my default skin for a very, very long time.

thank you ;)

just a heads up though there doesn’t seem to be a possible way to make the vertical scrolling like NXE (always there/switchable) and update covers as you switch   

Simply this is the quickview switcher, which you invoke with RB/LB, then you can scroll up and down, and hit A to select, then the coverflow refreshes. 
I can’t map to thumb UP or down because coverflow uses these already 😕

 

Not much I can do to get around this limitation unfortunately but it’s a cool party trick I suppose :)

Translate: 

What to do when the game title is cut off / overlapped by the description of the buttons? seems to be in low resolution or something

 

Which buttons? They don’t overlay the title. We can make game title field wider, for long titles, but it still will be fixed to a max width. 
 

attach picture of issue if you can

Thanks for the update. I ran the official NXE dash on my RGH a few days ago and your skin feels very close to the original. Amazing work. I wonder if it would be possible to make the game covers resemble the flat style of the dashboard? Any plans to add the Xbox Avatar?

I’ve looked into this quite a bit. The original NXE tiles could be represented in a whole new scene - however the main display scene of Aurora is the coverflow, which displays game covers.
So I had taken the only NXE layout that is similar (browsing marketplace) so the covers match those position exactly. 

I could scale covers to be wide, but then the images are incorrect aspect ratio. 
 

Could add avatar but it would be fixed in 1 Place and not attached to a card like it is here. So I had no plans of adding it to keep it clean. 
 

thanks for the support - need to post a newer version soon. :)

@jveda Can I just say how fantastic this skin is!

As someone who has always liked 'stealth' or 'tasteful' mods, be that in game consoles or cars etc, I've always gone for something that increased the original functionality of a device but not at the cost of it looking OEM in design. for those reasons this skin feels perfect! I always loved the original blades and I didn't dislike the NXE menu, but the final menu MS put out just never sat right with me as something I enjoyed navigating or interacting with visually. with an RGH 360 Aurora and your skin, I think I've found the perfect balance of increased functionality (playing game backups) whilst keeping an OEM looking interface! the subtle xbox loading animations/icons are just perfect.

I'm not sure if it's limited to just my install, but I did find a graphical glitch in a double loading bar on the title update page if you scroll between title updates when one is downloading - it seems to use the default animation and I'm guessing a newer one?

I'd love to see this skin fully polished as much as possible, I'd happily make a small donation towards the project in hope of keeping your momentum up to really make this something special.

Thanks!
