XBOX 360 Style

Postby dwpoyner » Wed Dec 13, 2006 9:14 pm

Anyone have, or able to create an XBOX360 contact list style and possible growl notification? I would love to have the growl notification that looks like the 360 popup notifications for friends and invites and such. Thanks!

There are 2 options for creating Growl notifications:

* full display style - you code a full-blown view that properly draws as you desire, which gives the most power [and requires the most knowledge/work.]

* WebKit display style - you write relevant HTML+CSS to emulate the look you are going for and the WebKit display will handle all the details for you. [less work, less flexibility]
Try my software!

I don't know how to do anything with Growl. I wonder if it's hard? ... But that's an awesome idea! As for the contact list, shouldn't that be fairly straight forward?

Right (I know this is double posting ... but hmmm).

This is what I came up with:

If you clicky that you should see my first attempt at a growl style. Also if this is what you are looking for?

Btw, I'm generally pathetic in Photoshop (or the GIMP in my case)

The CSS needs to be touched up and the actual image is pretty bad imo. As this was just a quick test. So I call it "v1.0".

Anyway, hope you like it. :D

Since I could only make this using CSS ... could anyone direct me to learning the full-display-style? (I am also searching how to learn) Thanks.

Great job Yoh,

Hopefully someone can adopt that to a "real" [non-webkit] display style though. That way it can have the animation and everything.

Yeah, I wasn't too sure on that. Since this stays fixed. i.e. it doesn't change depending on how much text you have it's just the image. (Also, maybe a mod would like to move this to the Growl forum?)
