Lock home menu selector - dascmo - 2010-12-31 20:25

Seems to work well thank you for sharing. I would love to see a banner view available for TV shows and a way to disable studio flags in the list view but all in all It runs very smooth.Smile

Question:
Is there a way to lock the home menu selector? I like mine on the bottom but I keep pressing up and moving it.

You can change it by editing home.xml and IncludesHomeRecentlyAdded.xml
do a search and replace of
Code:
Skin.HasSetting(lowermainmenu)

with
Code:
true
that way it will always be lower menu.

I don't use banners for tv shows. I can make option to disable list flags though.

Thanks that worked perfect.Smile I love that I get the aeon home screen but without all the bloat in the other aeon versions.

Great work.

The skin is light on resources, without losing the identity of Aeon.Btw, Banner view for TV shows will make the skin more versatile. Please include banner view


- ubuntuf4n - 2011-01-02 14:26

Really nice skin.
I am also going to use a lower home menu view.
+1 banner view.


- bandelguy - 2011-01-06 06:18

Kindly tell me whether banner view will be supported in future or not. Some TV shows in tvdb database lack posters, so I do have to use banners.

My new favorite skin! Thank you!

I am working on a banner view. Still work in progress, so maybe it will change, but expect something like this:

The banner view looks cool, however, there's lot of empty space on the right hand sight, which i think u will address to. Will the banner view be there with all infos like studio and desciption, etc., on pressing " i "?

Yeah it's work in progress, I the changed screen above. Info screen will be the same as poster view only with a banner instead of poster.

Why can't I see my mouse pointer?

I just registered to let you know I'm loving this skin. It's so smooth and lightweight and still has that Aeon look. Keep up the good work!
