      Have they shown off this new style so we can try make an icon to match?

      I'm glad hes finished the new UI was waiting for this ever since I heard of it. Although I don't know what it looks like either. Andoma call the current UI "ugly" so its probably going to be something completely different and not just a different skin or a tweaked UI. I'm guessing something along the lines of a desktop like UI similar to Multiman's.

      I really love the current UI, its different from anything i've seen before, slick, practical and thus very cool.
      But looking forward to the new Showtime 4.0 for whatever bugfixes or new feautures it will have.

      I quite like the GUI of showtime and i also like the icon, andoma is the best dev in the PS3 scene, he hasn't let the money get in his ass, he just keeps working, plus Showtime is multiplatform, it could end up being quite an awesome alternative to XBMC

      Are you suffering from a retarded moment, i never said it had anything to do with money, i was saying that andoma is a top dev,because he hasn't sold out like others, hence me stating that Showtime has nothing to do with money.

      You should have gone to spec savers bro.

      true ,i thought even multiman without cobra worked for other dongless ps3 .
      except the features that cobra created for their dongle.
      in any case the dude who did showtime is a ****ing genius ,never seen in my life an interface so slick ,smooth and fluid .
      got deserve huge respect .if only we have more dev like him...

      I don't know but for me I have a winner right now and is my friend Glowball. He did one amazing animated icon for this tool months ago and looks so cool. I vote for this icon to be the default icon for this great tool.

      Here is the video preview for the icon i talk about for those don't know :

      The builds under the Testing category use the new interface (anything listed 3.99.344 or higher)
      https://www.lonelycoder.com/showtime/download

      As you can tell from the commit log, he's working on it a lot so the testing builds will likely be updated frequently

      I hope there is a movie backup manager integrated. But anyway, this is very good news!

      ShowTime is one of the best homebrew apps on the PS3, I do hope he has incorporated the navigation through the analog sticks like you can on the XMB itself, it's one of those things that I hate about ShowTime (only being able to navigate using the joypad). Also I hope he's gotten better on SPU/GPU usage so we might enjoy more real HD content without the message 'this cpu is too slow'.. But even with those shortcommings it's still a f-ing great application, and I hope he continues on it with much pleasure..

      I dont use showtime myself but my GF uses it on her ps and a new ui has her all excited, she says thanks [MENTION=30251]Andreas[/MENTION] and co. She cant wait.

      Its the "ONLY" thing she does use and its quite funny watching her use a controller. She presses the buttons like the controller is gonna bite her lol and she has to look down at the controller for every button press. Unlike me I press it like a "MAN", "have that and that and that". Ah well keeps her quiet I guess.

      I may have rambled on a little lol.

      So I tried out showtime's latest build "showtime-3.99.425-g848947f.pkg" : https://www.lonelycoder.com/doozer/b.../download/1246

      IT BLEW ME AWAY! it scrapes covers, reviews and info from somewhere! It's an amazing improvement! I had to post about it for those who haven't updated yet!!

      It's not a huge overhaul in terms of looks, which is a good thing.

      Looking forward to seeing some cool logos for this.
