I know you lose branding (game art) with clear tiles but it looks so cool when you scroll clear tiles (especially when you have a mix of transparent and opaque tiles because it's as if you're peeking or exposing the background as you scroll) and it shows so much more wallpaper:

Reminded me of Boom Boom Rocket but with more of a story line. Needless to say I think I am going to have to get this. Not to mention you will get a good arm work out. Kinect tracks damn well with it too.

Make a feature suggestion on the Windows Preview App (though I think it easier online since we can use a keyboard) and see what happens!

Sounds like a lot of people were having trouble getting pictures thru the Media Player Preview application. To fix the problem, completely uninstall the old one then install the new Media Player.

Tampabuc...those are pretty cool. (Especially the Avengers one.) Are they stock photos from somewhere?

Not sure, I pulled them from threads about how to make templates, reading up on file types/sizes, etc., mainly from Reditt.

I'm trying to find options that will allow a nice custom banner on top, something like "Greatness is here..." (couldn't resist), nothing in the center, and short detail at the bottom.

Some good gaming wallpapers here...

I wasn't talking about him. Dude is obviously having troubles and people he calls 'friend' are talking about him like that behind his back? Wow. It's sad.

Sorry I meant the Dashboard Preview app. I'm assuming you are in the beta release pool for updates for the X1. I thought you were at one time.
