That's weird, I think I have another WipEout HD theme. Are there two themes? Mine is just the classic XMB with the WOHD style borders around (The four square corners only)...
I'll check that one out, maybe I'm mistaken and the theme I have is not HD...

9th October 2008, 04:52 PM
one is the official theme. the other is not (older one)

9th October 2008, 05:49 PM
Cool, but it's taking ages to download atm....... But I can play LBP beta instead!

Swedish store didnt get the Making of video. Hate when they have different content on all stores. -_-

The new theme looks great, and it was nice to see that there were several wallpapers included (I've seen three so far, don't know if there are more?).
I'm about to watch the video now.

9th October 2008, 07:49 PM
I somehow managed to grow a full beard in that video in the space of 10 seconds...

Finally, I get to see the man who is so amazing

<3 paul ripley's work.

Thanks SL! The Wipeout HD theme 2 is so awesome. Different ships for all the items on the XMB, and everything is so very Wipeout-i-fied (yeah, I just created a word to describe it)

Very cool.

10th October 2008, 11:46 PM
yes, thank you so so much SL for the theme and the making of - loving them both!

nice to see the people who make our lives complete lol.

These themes are so cool! I was going whooo.... what is that? I didn't see that wallpaper before! I didn't download that one. This happend to me two times. Really nice that the wallpapers are changing.:+

12th October 2008, 07:01 PM
I really wish they had the making of video on the US store!!!

Maybe I'm looking too hard into it, but I think there was actually alot of thought put into the creation of the WipEout HD Theme 2.

Here's my guess as to why they picked the icons they did for each column in the XMB:
*EGX is friends column, because EG.R and XIOS became friends and merged ;P
*QIREX-RD is the internet column, because they are all about the research and development :)
*Piranha is game data, FEED ME! Downloads, installs, save games are all food for the PS3 :D
*GOTEKI45 for movies! Because movies are pictures that GO!
*FEISAR for music, FEISAR has been in every game and wipeout is strongly associated with its music.
*ASSEGAI for Photo, because its just so damn sexy.
*AG-SYS for the System Settings Column, obviously because SYSTEM is in the name, and also because AG-SYSTEMS is the CORE OF THE AG RACING LEAGUE!!
*TRIAKIS for Users tab, which also makes sense since triakis is all about mutiplicity. Multiple hulls, multiple users.

Am I reading too much into this, or do you guys think I'm right? Maybe it was unintentional and just happened to make sense... or maybe they did it intentionally like that.

12th October 2008, 07:03 PM
Yeah, got my theme! Hurts my eyes a little but it is very nice looking.

Cheers Wipeout creators, good work as usual!

12th October 2008, 07:31 PM
Same here: Love the fact that the theme is changing! Unfortunately, it can be difficult to read a few lines of the XMB (size of installed Game Data, for instance), but it sure makes the menu as slick as they get. :)


12th October 2008, 08:03 PM
Wip3ou7, you may be right :) That makes sense hahaha :D
Making of video coming up on Filefront ;) EDIT: If I can upload it. FF is 1GB max, and the video is 1GB :O

12th October 2008, 10:15 PM
hmmmm, just watched the 'making of' video on youtube, it's a good showcase for the game, but that's all it is, here's our game this is what we put in it...it's no 'making of' video in the slightest!!! still if you don't own the game it's a good watch to see what's on offer.

12th October 2008, 10:38 PM
Yeah, I`ve seen this video and it`s really good stuff and also, met few of these guys! but I`m more curious about Mr Berry, Did he shave before these videos?! :P


13th October 2008, 12:57 AM
I agree with dragoon...this was more a promo video than a 'making of'...I was crying for shots on the craft designer's screens of the 3D models to try and see what software they were using...eheheh...

Still...it was fun to watch the different players in the anti-gravity game...

The theme download was much appreciated though...

Thanks for the upload, mate! :)

13th October 2008, 12:09 PM
That was very cool to see faces you already know, there was also few sec in that conference room we were last year with few members from here.
I really enjoyed watching those 8 min
SL you rock :+

14th October 2008, 05:03 PM
Nice! I didn't know, just went and got it. :+

I love the icons, that is what I got it for. I still like to use my own pics from the game as wallpapers :)

There is no video though :( and I am biased against .rar files lol.

14th October 2008, 05:27 PM
There is no video though :( and I am biased against .rar files lol.Well that's too bad because I won't be uploading for another five hours and searching for a way to compress 1027MB of HD video under 1024MB for an hour prior to that. :P Enjoy the non-video ;)

(Hint: get winrar, you won't regret it for this file).

Did I hear someone on the vid say all the stuff was unlocked from the get go and there was no need to unlock anything :P

14th October 2008, 10:09 PM
Yes I was bemused by that comment despite after finishing a grid, it says 'Sebenco Climb unlocked for Racebox'.
