metropolis 2.0 - Windows Media Center Mod by octogonpc metropolis 2.0 - Windows Media Center Mod by octogonpc
This is version 2.0 of my customized Windows Media Center, codename METROPOLIS. The original design can be found on my blog ([link]). These are all screenshots from my working version on Windows 7 SP1 Home Edition (x86).

Version 1.0
Media Center Theme: "Metropolis" by OCTOGONPC - coming soon
- METRO UI inspired buttons, and custom start sound
- features Different Backgrounds for Media Types - [link]

Version 2.0 incorporates all the items from version 1.0, plus new mods for each of the categories:
- Main WMC Screen
- Movies
- Music
- Pictures
- Video
- Recorded TV (not seen in the screenshots)
- Media Library (not seen in the screenshots)

- PLUS Customized Start-up sound.
- Images were developed by me on Microsoft PhotoDraw v2.0.

Other inspirations go to the following ideas / designs / concepts:
Zune Media Center 3.1 (by ~Bonkietje) - [link]

Metro Media Zone : Movies (by =Silviu-Eduard) - [link]

Windows 8 Wallpaper (by ~PureSlurpee) - [link]

UPDATE: Well, Windows 8 (RP) will not work COMPLETELY with the theme, so I will have to offer just Windows 7 (x86). Sorry to disappoint anyone who actually planned to use this theme...I'm kinda disappointed myself (about the whole course of Windows 8 MC...made me contemplate even releasing this).
