This is a continuation of the skin Mustayaluca orginally started by macardi and development now taken over by Psycho Reptile, trevor and ltfearme over dlarge500.
The best description is a quote from macardi inital post. "The inspiration comes from various sources as you can see. Some parts are more or less rip off´s from other skins like the home screen which orgins from djh's AEON over at XBMC. Other inspirations comes from crj's work over at Meedios and some inspiration have been taken from joostzilla and his Maya skin. So basically its a blend from various sources combined with my own ideas."

I've spent the last two days setting up the program after not using it for a long time, and I decided to go from the Maya skin I had used before to this. And I must say, this is better in every way. The skin has been the least of my problems in the setting up, but there's one thing I miss.
You only have support for myEmulators in basic home, but I'd rather use myEmulators 2. If you could point me somewhere where I could get help making it work, that'd be great, otherwise, I would like to make a rquest that you add it.
It took me a fair while to get this skin working properly, but boy, was it worth it! Everything flows beautifully, and even the most infrequently used screens look amazingly well polished!.
I was running MP1.2.2, installed the skin on an existing install, and i ended up with MP crashing every 5 minutes. Completely uninstalled, reinstalled MP1.2.3, installed the skin FIRST (and let it install the plugins for me), then updated the plugins from extension manager, and now its running fantastically.
I'm not sure exactly what in the skin package caused all the crashes (possibly because i was running newer versions of the plugins it has bundled), but i will say again, this skin is definately worth your time.
PS: the music now playing screen on this one isnt crap!!!
Crashed twice on installation, had to kill the installer to continue. MP 1.2.2. Gave up after that and moved on to Streamed MP which worked without any problems. So please, realize that this isn't really a review of the skin itself, as I never managed to get it working.
I didn't think it was possible, but this skin stunned me the little necessary bit more than Maya.
Once I installed a pre-version at 8 p.m. and went to bed at 2 o'clock in the morning...
First of all: This skin needs a fast system to be installed for a most convincing experience and usage!
Second: Take your time to test the whole variety of configurations.
Third: Enjoy smooth running, (imo) best-looking and most delightful skins!
The installer is complete and easy to understand. Hint for the installation: Install al plug-ins.
It was a bit touchy when I once did not install all recommended plug-ins, but that was easy to solve.
Elegant colours and blending paired with less bling-bling and the smooth Ken Burns effect on the back ground allow you a totally customized skin with just a few clicks.
