I'll trust you.
But what about leaving the backdrop until it has to be changed to a new one?
And what happened to the cycling backdrops when there's no fanart available?
The following is a matter of taste, but I think the layer to create an illusion of a highlight is too opaque.
I'm talking about the elliptical gray smudge beneath the title of the movie....
Something more transparent, lighter a bit blue-ish.
Maybe that illusion of a stage-light wasn't intended, if it wasn't it might be a good idea
As I said before... Have a nice holiday and DON'T DARE to answer this post immediately

Great Mod...X...I've been trying it and I like it a lot. The ONLY thing that bugs me is the TV shows "filmstrip" image that surrounds each thumbnail...I dont think from a design perspective that it fits the smoothness of the rest of the skin.

review... yippee... great words there... i'm real happy someone took the time to write a detailed review without pointing out the flaws this skin clearly has... but thank you, i'll remember those king words for ages...
nyways... i'd like my own forum as well... makes sense... this mod has been running for quite some time... and with aeon changing to stark... i think its only fair that this mod gets recognised as a continuation of classic... no idea how to go about it though... guess, i'm happy someone says something, but i'm not going to be the one to stir the boiling pot which is aeon's progress...but thanks, guess i'll send someone a message...

well, thats two people supporting the mod, to become a skin of its own... guess no one else cares... but we'll see... maybe i'll stop production and dissapear like djh_... hehehe...

no problem.. . happy u like it... its good to hear positivity wherever it is... thanks... and yes, this forum shouldn't be so hidden away... wish i had the power to change the way it is...
takagen Wrote:Hi, a little contribution for xbox users.
thanks for that man... will definately add this in come Volume IV... change a few things to go with the skin better... but thanks a lot, it's good when people help out sorting issues i don't have the time to deal with... i'll probably pass my code and graphics i've created ur way when i get to it, so u can test the result (no xbox to play around with it anymore)... nyways... anything else u sort out that i can't test, pass it on ok...
markiz Wrote:Thanks for fulfilling my request. The skin looks awsome!
didn't know it was that easy to change the sections... and all that... haven't even wiffed in that direction during the creation process, so thanks for letting me know its not that hard... about the time panel... i'm using the same one in library and file mode... its no different to the way it was in volume 2... didn't want to change it, because the home screen is a different element to the sections it links to... didn't want a uniform feel between the two... wanted it to be two seperate feels... hope that makes sense... may add an option to disable it on the other sections besides the main page... look into it when i get the time ok...

I agree with the three other people who mentioned this topic.
I think HORIZONZ has found a new light and has moved in a completely different direction to Aeon, and with Aeon changing to Stark, maybe it's time Horizonz be given it's own forum with XB2IRIS as the admin.
I've noticed so many people posting help topics about Horizonz in this forum, and I don't think DJH would appreciate it having to look at topics about a completely different skin or whats its called at present a mod.
Show me a single mod with +-500 posts and 3 versions. That doesn't exist! So, how would we go about getting Horizonz its own skin topic? XB2IRIS, have you looked into it yet?

+1 on Horizonz having it's own sub-forum. I agree with everything BlackRose said.

that leaving the backdrop idea, is a bit impossible to implement because backdrop cycling is based off a timer and changes after that timer is complete... wish it were possible, because that would make showcase so much more stable in my opinion... if fanart isn't used, disable the use fanart for movies option is aeon feature settings... thats should sort the issue out i hope... about the highlight in showcase... yeah, was thinking of changing the color, but we'll see what happens when i start editing again...
will enjoy the holiday, i leave this week... but i'll be around here until then to help out as best as i can... and to add stuff to my todo list... l8r dude...

very true... but we'll see... i'll send the admin a message and see what he says... maybe we're being illogical... but maybe, someone has a soft spot for this mod...
