I was around wayyy back when Cinema Experience was being developed. I was the original developer of the HTPC MEGA Pack with free updates. I was selling the crap out of them and then people started to get jealous and I was banned from AVSForum, XBMC forum, and all of the other places where I was adding content to help people build their home theaters. After no mods would hear me out I basically gave up on this entire hobby and got into game emulation.
Fast forward 7 years or so and I came across Cinema Vision. I decided to get back into the HTPC club and I am glad I did. I have so far incorporated my emulators with my HTPC experience. We are running a 72TB Synology server. 30,000 games or so including Xbox360, PS3, and WiiU. We decided that we were tired of paying bills so we made the first steps towards complete freedom and bought a 2003 Thomas school bus that we are going to turn into a tiny, smart home. The home will include voice commands for our home automation. We also recently got a rooftop deck made so that we can watch movies on the roof where ever we go.
