    Thanks Attila... Means a lot!

    Thanx TST! Glad to inspire!! And the frontend is quite easy to use. I got help from a guide in swedish, but I guess there´s a lot of tutorials on youtube. It was quite tricky with all the the joysticks button configs for interface commands, so use keyboard/mouse if you can. Best of luck!

    Thanks RedManc. I do enjoy it!! About the cables, I´m no sleever maaaaaan :lol::lol::lol:

    Hehe.. Geeee thanks Nutman!! That scratch could be gone in an instant with some of that good ol danish oil, but I think(I think) that it fits with the overall concept.

    :blush::blush::blush:

    Thank you Angel! It has everything to do with blueberry, since it so YUM YUM :lol::lol::lol:

    Thanks mate!! Thanks for following...

    Zankz duuuuuuude :D

    Thank you!

    I agree - don't make it TOO perfect. Leave some small things that COULD be improved. Or something.... (Ok, GO ON and FIX IT NOW, will ya? It's hurting my eyes and my SOUL!!!!) :D

    Simply fantastic work.

    In case no one has mentioned it, you can get rid of the windows screen thingie by customizing it (i.e. you will see it but it cane be an image of something else, like r-kaid 6 loading please wait kind of stuff by using bootsking ( http://www.stardock.com/products/bootskin/ ) hope this helps mate : )

    What program are you using for your menus in your video, because i quite like the look of it.
    I was going to get maximus arcade, but i don't like the look of the menus.

    Thanks again Waynio :lol:

    Thank you, and thanks for the tip... Sounds like a great solotion and gonna look into it :thumb:

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Thank you friend. Glad to inspire!! :lol: But Gnu ditchin' the alu?? mmmpffff!!! But of course, it would be very interesting to see you making a wood piece :rock::rock::rock:


    I am using Maximus acctually. But I didn't care much for the standard menus either, so I made my own modified skin. It was tricky though since there´s no good tutorials out there :(

    Don't try to build something from scratch. In the skin editor, open one of the pre-made skins, like Maximus Sunrise, and just play around with it. That´s how I did it. Test and preview, over and over, that´s my only tip. Maybe you can find a tutorial out there somewhere. Best of luck mate!
