Also added a 2nd Icon Panel now. Should be enough.

Long time user (and massive fan) of Aeon nox, just testing the WIP version now and liking what I am seeing. The new menu customization options are huge! Seems really fast and smooth too…
I know it's a WIP and nowhere near finished (so please don't hit me!), but I wanted to share a couple of requests:
- I would love to see an option to use the 'original' nox font for the main menu (Ubuntu Sans?), I am not personally a fan of the old Aeon font.
- A shortcut to the main menu options from the shutdown menu à la 2.0 would be very useful (maybe already planned?)
- An option to hide the tooltip on the left for the sake of tidiness (at the expense of WAF)
My only negative feedback, and again only my opinion, would be that I find the 3.0 episodes view inferior to the 2.0 version. I can't quite put my finger on why, maybe because it seems shifted a bit too far to the right?
Otherwise loving it and looking forward to the official release!

1) the only font i could imagine would be roboto condensed bold. most other fonts do not fit imo.
2) probably not, one of main aims was to remove cluttering and not having that much buttons visible at once. you can add a shortcut to a icon panel for example if you want quick access.
3) also not too sure about that one, i think that the vast majority will find it very useful. it´s only a few lines to remove from code though, so easy to do that yourself.
4) yes, seems as if we cannot satisfy everyone´s wishes with episode view. try background 2, that´s why it was shifted. it´s much more of a fanart view now.

Are the video playlist and favourite options working for custom selections yet? When I go to select a playlist nothing shows up even though I definitely have some created, whereas when selecting favourite as an option nothing happens at all, no menu prompts me to select a favourite...
Sorry if this has been mentioned, tried searching but couldn't find anything concrete.
Thanks and love the direction of the skin!

Hi there. First of all i'd like to say that i love the skin and appreciate all the work you guys put in this to make it better and better every time!
I got one question/remark regarding 3.0 though. In 2.0 the trailer "button" (in movie view ofc) is at the top of the screen and you can watch a trailer by selecting a movie and then pressing up and then left (if i'm not mistaken). In 3.0 however, the button is hidden in the menu on the side of the screen. So if i want to watch a trailer i'd have to open up that menu and then click the trailer.
However, and please tell me if you think i'm wrong , the whole purpose of that menu is to adjust the current view settings and things like that. It's for configuration, while the trailer is in a way a part of the whole "Media PC experience". It doesn't feel right (to me) that when browsing the movies, if i want to watch a trailer of a movie i have to open up the "configuration menu" first.
I know 3.0 is a WIP, i'm just wondering if this will change back to the way it was handled in 2.0 and if there are others out there who share my take on this.
Again, this is my view and in no way do i intend to offend anyone working on this great skin (or XBMC for that matter)

I kind of agree. How do you supposed to play a trailer straight from a view if you have kiosk mode to hide the media menu (except from pulling up the info window and then scroll to play trailer)?
RE: [WIP] Aeon Nox 3.0 - BigNoid - 2012-04-19 19:12
Imo it's much more intuitive this way. That section is not for settings actually. That part has been moved to the viewtype settings. All buttons that are initially visible (minus the viewtype settings button) are part of the 'XBMC Media experience'. Having a trailer button there is a perfect match.

I believe if you have the kiosk mode enabled that hides the media menu you just have to accept that the trailers are only available in the info window, like it is in the default skin. After all, that functionality is still a hack and the trailer button in video info is superior to the way we handle trailers in library, because the one in video info can play locally stored trailers without having them scanned in the library.

is there any chance to become a option to put the "standard" submenu to custom submenu ? Or how could i get the same effect like Genre or newest in custom submenu ?
