    that gui KICKS ASS!

    I'm sure the GUI on the R4 can be redone in future updates, but i'm not so sure that the R4 team will actually go that far.

    When the review of the R4 came out and i read that one of the cons is the outdated/boring gui or whatever i wasn't at all convinced. but now it's like moving from Windows 95 to Windows Vista!

    then again, you spend like 20 secs in the gui, what matters the most is what you spend hours playing with... games!

    lmao, yeah. Let's all keep in mind that these are just GUI designs done in an image editor. There's no guarantee they will look as clean and crisp in the real thing as they do now. ;o

    That GUI was purely a graphical design.
    They had a competition to design a GUI, wonder if Ninjapass team will
    actually make that GUI design to actually a working one....
    ATM Ninjapass has THE worst GUI of them all...

    If they let some source for the R4 GUI out then yeah it can easily look like that if your willing to do a little work. I'm doubtful that the R4 team will be doing that anytime soon though.

    However the network settings not sure thats easy to do i don't know if anyone has figured out how to alter the firmware settings....least i haven't seen it..

    The whole thing looks photoshoped.

    As in, is the X9's GUI really capable of being totally redone like that?

    Apparently the artist designs the entire GUI, then the team is left to code for all the buttons, tabs, etc. That one looks ridiculously complex, but if they can do it, go for it.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I am happy with the current GUI and must ask why some are so desperate to change, or rather "jazz up" their GUI which does it's job perfectly.

    Sure, I'm not denying that prototype system looks very stylish but what would you prefer?.... a super stylish, wonderful GUI that looks the business but drains extra power and takes longer to load. Or a simple, cut down GUI (like we have), allowing you to load what you want fast and easily with minimal fuss?

    At the end of the day, the GUI only serves as a middle ground to select the rom to play, to load moonshell, or initialise slot 2.... not to leave running for people to gawk at!

    Im not saying we need to change it im just saying if it can be done then why not??
    Personally a better GUI will make the R4 a better,more attractive and a more professional looking Flash kit [​IMG] (I personally dislike the simple GUI when i know better can be achieved [​IMG] ) And do good looking GUIs suck more power?? [​IMG]
