i dont think you understand the reason for the strings section. no offense.
If you get a basic strings section with those strings, other people would help
out to create other languages.
This is not something you do "just for you"
When a complete english string section is in place its easy for about anyone to do translations later.

I'm not sure what words you're referring too. But the words in the menu should be a good start. If you want to add more words, that's fine with me. I will help out with translating to Swedish.
Oh. And another thing: If you're planning on adding "Kids" to the menu some day - then maby you could add "KIDS" to the strings.xml as well...

actually, this mod was made for myself, someone convinced me to share it with you... but yeah, i get the idea... and it's a mod, not a skin... so, to my defence, i didn't quite think translations would be important... so, relax... take it easy... and rest assured... i'll do something about it when i get the time...
no problemo... will add the menu items to the strings.xml... as for the other things... going through the entire skin looking for non-hardcoded labels would be mission, with my social life and other updates i'm busy sorting out at the moment... but, as a basis, the menu should be sorted out by next release...

Translations are for skins, not mods. On many occasions, XB2IRIS has said that this mod was for personal use, but decided to share it with the public out of the goodness of his heart.
After all, he decided to take suggestions and requests and modify the mod to suit others' needs, again out of the goodness of his heart. Such suggestions can obviously hinder his personal preference, and on almost every occation has added a feature even though he never uses it or doesn't see the point of it. This mod was never meant to replace AEON, yet everyone is treating him as if that's the case. Will you still download Horizonz, when a new Aeon version comes out. Maybe, maybe not. This is a mod, but so many of you treat it elsewise.
And lately, some of you are forcing suggestions. If you want something, he doesn't feel is important, don't force it, do it yourself. What is a few minutes, knowing he has spent months putting this together. Lord, what's wrong with some of you people. If he says he'll think about it, leave it at that, don't force the topic.
Haven't you noticed, that if he thinks its important enough, he does it. C'mon, stop harrassing the guy. A simple thank you isn't enough for the forceful nature of some of the suggestions i've seen of this forum.
Anyways, just thought i'd voice my opinion.

I completely agree. Unlike some other skin creator's, XB2IRIS has been nothing but great towards everyone using his mod. A few, have helped out where they could, offered encouragement and congratulations about this miraculous mod, and suggested things with understanding, rather than forcing ideas and pushing the bracket.
HORIZONZ is the best mod I've ever used, and obviously I'm excited about what's coming next. But I've been supportive rather than throwing my two sense around trying to get things done for me. While your relaxing waiting for things to happen, the skinner is spending hours and hours trying to get those things done. They don't just get done, time is spent getting them done.
So, everybody, if something is noted by the mod's creator, there is a big chance it'll be done one day. Look at the strike rate for suggestions versus features. It's close to 100%, and that's only due to XB2IRIS's commitement to helping out.
I don't see too many of the suggestions panel dropping in to offer encouragement and insight into what you like that's been done already. XB2IRIS isn't a team, it's an individual! So, be thoughtful and stop forcing ideas! Rectifier, good on you for bringing it up!

What I'd like to know is, when's the next release coming out? What the heck is taking so long?? Stop hanging out in the forums and get this thing moving already!
Actually, I don't see what the rush is about.. Just about everything that was either not working or missing, is good now.. I'm pretty happy with the way Horizonz is currently..
As more of a learning experience, I've been messing around with the rss feeds.. I somewhat have it working with the lowered scroller, but not really.. Few other things I'd like to add as well.. Maybe someday I'll make the Horizonz mod mod.. But for now, I think he did a great job on this and I'm looking forward to see what else he has planned..

offcourse my post was misunderstood....
I know it's a mod, and yes i know that xb2iris created it for personal use.
i didnt mean anything pushy about my post. i simply said
that maybe x2biris might had misunderstood the reason about strings.. thats
all. dont get this to be a flame about my intentions.
I have created skins myself and know the work and dedication that it takes so dont try and learn me something i know.
damn you guys can be itchy sometimes

Wow, this skin looks really nice!
But will support for 4:3 be added? As it is now, it's quite hard for me to read much of the text.

This is not a skin, this is a mod. Aeon is the skin, and afaik it was meant from the beginning for 720p and 1080p resolution only. Also I believe the original developer never finished it and is working on something else, so you're unlikely to see changes beyond the scope of this mod.

hmmm... thanks for the backup and acknowledging the effort it takes to put a mod this magnitude together... but like so many skinners or modders before me, perfection is the name of the game, so whatever i can do to make the mod better... yeah, sometimes people don't take no for an answer and they are persistent as hell... but that's the way they are, and i'll do what i always do... if i don't have the time or will to do it, i won't... can't make everone happy, can i... but dude... thanks for the big brother approach... ur comments are always welcome...

wow... a big brother and a big sister... hmmm... thanks as well for all the backup and encouragement... nice to have a fan... but yeah, like i said to rectifier, i'm well aware of the pressure some people put on me to get a certain this or that done, but i'll do what suits me for the time i have available... there will always be time in the future to do something... so i just add it to my to-do list... rest assured though... i really appreciate everything u say... but i'm a big boy... can take anything anyone dishes out... but yeah, thanks for everything...
