Windows 7: Don't like the old boring Media Center?

29 Mar 2010   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
Don't like the old boring Media Center?

Hello Guys

I've been watching a lot of movies lately, and started thinking "oh man, boring old media center" it was just.. too average.
A couple of days later i found some beautiful skins for windows media center, they are some dark, good-looking, minimalistic skins by the creators of "Token". (look up some of their stuff!)
The skins by it self is VERY easy to install, you have to replace ONE .dll file, and you're ready to go!.
Instructions comes with the skins. its packed with WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files

1st skin is for Win7 Ultimate 32 & 64bit. (the one i use)
-- Token V2 MediaCenter Skin by ~Mr-Ragnarok on deviantART

2nd skin should work for all flavours of Win7.
-- Carbon Windows Media Center by ~Mr-Ragnarok on deviantART

3rd skin is for Win7 32bit.
-- Black Windows Media Center by ~Mr-Ragnarok on deviantART

Here you go guys, a new look for your media center.. all credits goes to Mr. Ragnarok and the Token team.
