I can't tell at all what skin. The pictures are extremely blurry.

I'll have a look through my skin collection tomorrow but, likewise, I don't recognise it from those pictures.

It’s Rapier, it’s in th skin section. It also maybe a modified version, but it’s been so long since I used it I can’t remember.

As usual Rocky5 knows his stuff.

I'm 99% sure it is based on the Rapier Clarity Mod. Its certainly not vanilla Rapier and the Qualar and Elite mods don't have quite the same text backgrounds, they seem to use slightly more transparency and there are other significant differences too.

This how it looks on XMC4Xbox 3.5.3 in its commonly supplied form:-

The background must be a custom one replacing, I think, the Images > backgrounds: "background-system.jpg" and the Theme/Colours do not match any of those that came with my copy of the skin: Themes(1/4): Default (as shown), Lime, Orange, Crimson and Colours(1/6): Default (as shown). Lime, Orange, Crimson, Brown. Blue.

There is also some extra system info displayed at the top under the main header which the skin version I have does not include. So there is more to it than just an additional theme/colour and background image.

BTW the vanilla Rapier skin version I have has a small display problem. When exiting the Appearance > Skins screen if you use the 'B' button you'll end up with a blank screen but press it again you'll be back on the main menu. Just thought I would mention that if the OP decides to check out the other Rapier versions.

Is there a skin repository or large collection available? Someone in another forum claimed he had 700 skins, but was unable to upload.

Funny, I am doing a 2TB build myself. I haven't decided on XBMC4XBOX (great interface, LCD support, love the wide icons), Or UnleashX (great array of themes, video previews, fast/stable FTP transfers)...

For now i go with the confluence lite theme using the latest XBMC Build.
My build is almost finished. Just have to fix some things and i have to add about 250 thumbnails for all the stuff thats there. My Seagae HDD is 97% full now.

After im done i will try other skins for xbmc and see how that will look like. And i will definitely try this clarity rapier skin too
