lol.. they are all gorgeous.. and personally I do really like posters, but I just like being able to see more fan art too... and specially when there is extra fanart rotating in the background, having a significant part of the fanart covered by the poster to me kind of takes away from the advantage of having the extra fanart rotation

In the info panel for TV Shows, for the episode count, if the number of episodes is large, then the test gets cut off and is replaced by "...". All other fields seem to fit properly except that one.

Maybe have that one scrolling if its longer than a specific size just like the scrolling plot?

EDIT: Only an issue when the unwatched count is larger than two characters, AND the episode could is also larger than two characters

EDIT/EDIT: You know what would be super super cool? If the fanart inside the info panel could also rotate the extra fanart!!! But this would probably be too much work for too little benefit Sad

two quick questions:

- is the cut-off transparent rss panel background intentional when rss is at the bottom of the home screen, even though the rss text runs the entire length of the screen?

- is there a way to disable the tinted overlay on the home screen?

1) not tested yet. homescreen is wip.

2) yes, disable glow mode. (settings-->home style --> select main menu --> color options )

Final word: from the looks of it too much is being added to this skin, and with this version seems to have picked up too much bloat like the other aeon skins have. Since nox is suppose to be light and fast, this seems to be going in the wrong direction.

I asked phil to work on Nox 3.0 with me. He wanted to do his own mod first but I could talk him out of it Smile
I'm very thankful for that, cause phil has had the most innovative ideas I've seen in a long time and I'm positive the end result will be unlike any Aeon version you've seen. Definitely not bloated. It's way lighter then 2.x.x.

Hmm...

Problem with Aeon Nox:
When I browse through my movies, with viewtype: Wall, the "Thumbnails", sometimes gets "bigger"?

Example:

Bad 2:

Is there any way to enable/disable "Clear Cases", like Aeon Nox?

Do keep the good bits and the purity of vision eh? Change for changes sake is not always the best thing. Building on strengths is important and one of the strongest things Nox has as an Aeon riff is the attention to detail that's been shown, along with it's continuity. As a WIP it's easy for us who watch to make spur of the moment comments and judgements (whilst being grateful we can watch!). I've held fire on a couple myself until its out of WIP status.

It's good to hear that all is happy in house Nox Smile

of course beta testing is also for discussing design decisions, but only when feedback is constructive. yours isn´t.

Here's constructive: don't add bloat, lol. Extra stuff like sub menu stuff taking up the screen, using a bigger font etc to me is bloat. Since the skin is for end users, feedback is feedback.

in the landscape view of tvshows it shows a larger banner/smaller poster. can't really figure out where it pulls these images from... on http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=75710&lid=7 *criminal minds* this is not shown, and correct me if im wrong, but isn't fanart, posters and banners pulled from here?

how ever, it would be nice if for some reason there is no banner/poster it had fanart or the show title shown (e.g Americas next top model is to the left of american idol, but imposible to see without moving to it.)
