In need of your opinions again

Ok everythings getting close now but i still need an opening menu screen so i have been dabbling again

This was based on a kind of Crypt idea but i dont know whether it works ???
So do YOU like it or hate it

I dont know about other people but I think it looks good, however from looking at other shots you have posted of the DVD it doesn't really look like it 'fits in' with some of the other shots.

Ye...I liked it but had the same feeling that it didnt fit but i thought it may just be me. I think i will try something else

I still do like it though...Perhaps another project later !!

Hmmmm..howabout changing the crypt in favour of a metallic look? Hmm.... similiar in vain to the Bitmap Brothers graphics..

I'm not sure how it would work, but maybe having yellow lettering with metallic undertones. Making the Alien Breed picture come to life...like give it a shadowing effect. You could have bolts and screws that fit into the buttons. Possibly have the buttons rollover once clicked....just an idea.

Whatever you do Synchro I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

I was thinking like the XBOX....it is metallic..maybe alittle future tech looking...just a thought.. You could even have like bullet holes on the screen to simulate..hmmm...action..or maybe the bullet holes could do something else....

The alien may also look better with more colour. Maybe the alien could have arms at the side and reach out for the xbox.

PS: Keep up the good work.

Ok im not really an artist but i try to copy what i visualise in my head soooo!!
By using some of your previous ideas and making it look more like the rest of the menu i came up with this.....Any better ????

I know at the end of the day i can do what i like but i do value your input.
Not sure about the AMIGA text...Perhaps i should put the winuae logo back.

Personally, I LIKE the Amiga text, the alien claws look naff, though. Better without.

Amiga text is the best thing here.

I like it, the slots look like the old ventilation slots of the Amiga. The Amiga text is good too. I agree with the arms....maybe better trying to grab the xbox...but...hmmm....come to think of it...it does look quite good because it looks like the alien is trying to break through....like through a sheet of glass. Synchro, maybe you can make the claws look alittle more life like. Like...give them some knuckles and fade them. similiar to the way the teeth are done. just make them alittle 3Dish...but,

Yeah, I like it. Good work Synchro!!

- Hillsy.

PS: Nice touch with the Amiga lights

Personally...

Remove the wire and Alien hands.

Job done then - think it looks great otherwise - Amiga text is nice and the buttons look neat and functional - can't ask for more than that!
