PostSubject: Fan-made "ultimate" Xbox One UI video gets MS's attention   Wed Apr 30, 2014 11:49 pm

Adds swappable backgrounds, colours schemes, see-through tiles and more!!

Have you got time in your life for some thumping rock music and a range of charming transparency effects? Then gaze in awe and consternation at this "Ultimate Xbox One UI" video mock-up from PrimeGhost Gaming.

Knocked together using Adobe Flash, it's a bit rough and ready in places, but the idea of being able to switch in different backgrounds care of a sidebar seems very worthwhile. The video appears to have impressed Microsoft PR man Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb. More to follow?

There continues to be upset about the discrepancy between Xbox One and Xbox 360's user interface and dashboard functionality. Nelson has claimed that it's unrealistic to expect feature parity between an eight year old console and a machine with completely different processing architecture that's only been on sale for months - according to he, Microsoft "can't just plop Xbox 360 features into the code base of Xbox One".

I don't know if making the x1 dashboard like the 360 is possible or not but they created it so you know they can fix it. As for all the things that are shown in the video that would be cool but I'm much more interested in other things being fixed. The chat still only seems to work when it wants to. My x1 has a life of its own. It'll flip to my friends list in the middle of a game and do other things like that. It doesn't happen every time we play but it does happen.

I wouldn't want to go back to the 360 dashboard, new system new look, I liked some of the old features which they've took out but slowly putting what's needed back in!

That's a strange one, never heard of anyone's xbox doing that, have you contacted xbox support because it might be a fault with your xbox or even your controller if it's snapping or switching windows.

Do you have your Kinect plugged in? The Kinect pick up all sorts of background noise and can mistake them for commands. I turned my Kinect off and didn't have any more issues like that.

Yes, it is plugged in. I'll unplug it and see how it goes. I hadn't thought about the Kinect hearing things being the issue.
