I am trying to add HyperSpin w/ Advanced Launcher to the Main Menu in Aeon Nox. After setting up HS in Advanced Launcher I selected it as a Favorite. When I go to the Main Menu customizer I selected HS from the programs menu, but when I Choose Favourite nothing happens. Isn't this button suppose to take me to my Favorites? Is the different spellings the reason why this isn't working correctly? What's going on, ack! Please help, ty.

probably also related to the bug in script.favourites (see our FAQ for a fix)

Ok, I found this:

Q: Adding favourites as home menu entries does not seem to work. only a weird cluttered window appears:
A: look for something like
Code:
<setting type="string" name="skin.aeon.nox.Nox.CustomHomeItem1.Path">ActivateWindow(10025,&quot;W:\Musikvideos\&quot;,return)</setting>
in guisettings.xml in your userdata folder.

and remove the 2
Code:
&quot;

Only problem is I don't have a guisettings.xml in my userdata folder. There is a Picture Icon folder, and a LCD, Modelines Template, and RssFeeds xml's. Any suggestions?

This still doesn't help me, when I follow this path: Vista/Windows 7: Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata\ I don't have an app data folder. I do have a Roaming folder, but XBMC isn't in it.

Why other skins are able to manage favorites paths including &quot; but not Aeon NOX?

perhaps some have still outdated scripts (script.favourites) installed? i don´t think it´s some $INFO / $ESCINFO stuff. will investigate that.

But normally skins include minimum version script requirements :

Code:
..
<import addon="script.favourites" version="3.2.2"/>
...

Dependant scripts are not automatically updated?

just tested, i cannot recreate the bug anymore (also had it some time ago but didn´t test for a long time since almost everything can be chosen directly in nox without the need to use favs)
that makes me think that the script version is the cause for those problems.

it should, but people use GIT versions without taking care of those stuff etc...
stuff only gets updated / installed when the skin is downloaded from a repo.

You MUST have a guisettings.xml file :
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\%userprofile%\Application Data\XBMC\userdata\guisettings.xml
  • Vista/Windows 7: Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata\guisettings.xml
  • Mac OS X: /Users/<your_user_name>/Library/Application Support/XBMC/userdata/guisettings.xml
  • iOS: /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/guisettings.xml
  • Linux: $HOME/.xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml

You MUST have a guisettings.xml file :
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\%userprofile%\Application Data\XBMC\userdata\guisettings.xml
  • Vista/Windows 7: Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata\guisettings.xml
  • Mac OS X: /Users/<your_user_name>/Library/Application Support/XBMC/userdata/guisettings.xml
  • iOS: /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/guisettings.xml
  • Linux: $HOME/.xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml

only exception is windows in portable mode, then you can find it somewhere in your xbmc installation directory.
