Any modern looking game launcher dashboards with game covers

Postby JTagged » Thu Aug 17, 2017 12:28 am

I am currently using UnleashX as my dashboard game launcher and as much as I really like it, I would prefer something more modern looking that has game covers like Aurora on the 360, even the PS2 has something similar with OPL. I know there is XBMC but I would prefare something more leaner and meaner like a dedicated game launcher similar to UnleasX but more modern looking, does anyone know if there is any such thing.

as far as I know there arent many "modern" looking dedicated launchers, but with xbmc it can be skinned quite heavily to look exactly like what you want, coverflow, modern feel etc, a great example of this is a skin recently made by an xbmc4xbox user which he called xbmc origins, ill pm you the link cus Im not sure if it violates any rules etc

I 2nd that one. If you need any assistance setting it up, double check the XBMC thread, and don't forget to check out Rocky5's sweet addition to make it "minimal" (also on the same forum).Little thread I made here on the skin. I'll admit it does take a few to get it setup, but IMO, one of the cleanest setups I've done.

Any chance of you uploading a version that has all the different tweaks already done to Origin? Or have they already been done, and it's just the map files that need to be sorted out?

Check Rocky5's latest XBMC-EmuStation and rebranded XBMC4Kids now XBMC4Gamers at https://github.com/Rocky5/

XBMC-EmuStation YouTube Update (however, this video is a 1 week old; and as its a WIP, some updates/changes have probably been made)
