Aeon MQ3. Library scrolling issues aside, it is the only skin that gives me the wow factor.

hentai23 Wrote:for real...wmc ...once again youre joking right? wmc is utter crap ..xbmc all the way , library isnt good for movies thou exspecially if you have lots of asian movies that dont get picked up by the moviesdb scraper , half of youre collection wont show up in library -.-', hence files mode xD
Three tipps for you, 'bro':
1) Clear out your library, if it is indeed so over-blown.
2) Use a scraper for asian-stuff and not use TMDB's-scraper? What about pushing the missing movies to TMDB as it is open to everyone?
3) NFOs?

Quote:exspecially if you have tons of movies ,and you want the watched movie completely removed once youre finished watching it , library mode will leave the movie folder with the jpegs , subs etc on youre drive ...go ahead bro , give it a whirl if you dont believe me , delete a movie from within library and delete a movie from within file mode , then check youre hdd for the folder , that should make you see the usefullness of files mode
Okay, 'bro' - that is right, if I delete a movie from the library, the movie-file and only the movie-file will be deleted. If I delete the folder in the File-View, of course the whole folder will be deleted. Isn't that obvious?

Quote:not to mention in files mode you get to choose the according file you want to watch not like in library where the thumb is attached to some file , maybe even a sample movie file or whatnot, very problematic with blueray folders or video_ts , once again you do not seem to have ever used files mode -.-'
Never had the issue that it started playing a sample-files, bluray-folders get played back correctly, no hassle whats-o-ever. Also: The Thumb is not tied to some file but can very well be tied to some files... You do not seem to have ever used library mode " -.-' ".

Quote:not to mention you can fav each source say you have a source animes and another the movies then set theyre according scrappers and category and then you fav both rename each accordingly as custom menu item and you have yourself a nicely sorted collection ...not possible with library mode.....
? What? The exact same setup is possible with the library. Heck... you can even go a lot further with the help of the library (you could, for instance, create a smart-playlist for genres which wouldn't be possible in file-mode without the library being used), file-mode is where it falls flat.

Heck - the whole purpose of XBMC is to have a library...

hentai23 Wrote:or simply use search mode wich actually brings you to the exact movie ,btw you use a keyboard for navigation? -.-'.....Laugh ,i use a xbox 360 wifi controller with custom xpadder profile Wink
There is no such thing as a "xbox 360 wifi controller". And additionally: You wouldn't need xpadder...you could just configure a correct keymap for XBMC.

Quote:hell for fsd theres been insane skins comin out , xbmc skinners gotta up theyre game in the guis department theyre getting old fast for a couple of fresh ideas check out my requests in the skins support section Nod
You mean such posts as
Quote:well anybody yall happy with the lameass skins for xbmc?
? I foresee the following thing: Noone will build that skin for you, if you ask like that.
Or as coupas said it:
Quote:I would do it. If it wasn't requested by you. You suck at being polite and helpful at the internetz.

If you compare your posting style to pretty much anyone else you will see that you come across as a rude impatient child with no respect for anyone else.

I hope that noone helps you. With anything.

Why don't you jump in and help then? This is completely community-driven (on a side note: What the heck is fsd?) and there are a lot of great skins out there... I for one enjoy Neon. It is such a great, flawless and literally perfect skin for me, everything I ever hoped for with a lot more.

For me it is all about the tv-show section, you have the logo-view in neon (you only see the logo of the tv-show with the background being the fanart of the specific show).

Just let me know how I can make it better! I may be working on Metropolis (next best skin) but Neon is still in progress!

Great Smile I really, really love neon. The only thing missing for me is the AdvancedLauncher-support. But you already list it as a feature-request, so I thought you are aware of it Smile

My favorite by far right now is Glass! With that said there are several that I like a lot. But hate many with a passion. Those that are not developed for mouse use are amoung them. When I come across one of them, I delete it right away, and make a mental note to not check it out in the future.)
I use XBMC on 7 PC's throughout my home, and all of them use a mouse!

Being a fanart junkie, I'm all about Aeon Nox. It's just awesome. May be a little heavy for your system though... That being said, I am running it on 3 AppleTVs with no issues whatsoever. =)

*If I helped, please +rep below*
Windows Media Center PVR add-on (pvr.wmc) and Server (ServerWMC)
The XBMC team, plug-in devs, skinners, etc. do this for us for FREE in their spare time because they want to. Think about that for a second before you start bitching...

Must say Neon , mq3 , and one of the modded confluence skins.. But there is one thing that all skins are missing.. So for me the one thing that would make neon better it would be the ability to control volume level without a keyboard while playing music.. Does this make any sense ?

I am changing my pick. I come across Convergence, and like it much much better then any other skin hands down.
