Xbox 360 themes for your cabinet's pleasure

Post by emphatic » December 2nd, 2010, 2:32 pm

At first I was kinda bored and made a background image for my Dashboard. Came out pretty nice.

Now it's grown into a service for you other cab owners running a 360 with your arcade ports.

Installation: put it in a shared folder on a networked computer and browse to that from your 360's Picture archive, select it and press Y

New Astro City:

Since I snapped this picture, the Yen-sticker has been resized to fit better.

I'm not a huge fan of NAC artwork, so I didn't have much to work with. :awe:

For NAOMI and Blast City, what colors, styles would make it most awesome?

Edit: Here's a NAOMI theme: http://www.emphatic.se/NAOMI_theme.png"

Here's a Blast City theme: http://www.emphatic.se/blast_city.png"

No preview for these as for some reason my 360 won't update the shared folder on my laptop right now. These last ones turned out really nice. Btw, the bottom of the screen might seem a bit sloppy, but that won't be showing in the 360 so not to worry.

Enjoy, folks! I found out that once you've applied a custom background, it's saved as a "theme" in your profile so you can select it from a list.
