WHAT'S NEW IN AEON MQ 5?


REPLACE MENU

Right now you can forget everything that you ever saw about main menu customization.
In Aeon MQ 5 the new resource REPLACE do not only do the reorganization of the items but also do it as a complete integration betwen menu and submenu.
You can change any item of your submenu directly to the main menu or the reverse operation, this is the dream of any user.
The reorder as it is know on Aeon MQ 4 is also available. However is much better and simpler to use.


CLONE SUBMENU

Besides being able to reorganize the submenu in however way you like, you can also personalize this submenu with the items that you want or then clone other items in any other submenu.
Create a Playlist menu and clone the Movies submenu in just a few seconds, all very simple and effective.


SUBMENU AND MORE SUBMENUS

The Aeon MQ 5 holds all the submenus in an individual way, the total number of supported submenus is bigger than 2400 itens!
Each menu has its own set of submenus, some menus allow up to 20 customizable submenus.


MAIN MENU PRESETS

Organize the main menu the way you wish, then save these settings as a preset. Reorder the main menu for your wife or your kids and save it as another preset.
You can also arrange a menu fully optimized for video, one for music and so on, you can have up to 10 presets independently of each other.
So with just two clicks you can switch between the pre-saved settings, very fast and convenient.


REORDER MENU

A resource from Aeon MQ 4, now even more powerful and easier to use. You can create a totally customized menu of your personal way.
Which menu do you want to put as the main focus? Movies, Series, or any other? In Aeon MQ 5 you can do whatever you want.


MY MENU 1 and MENU 2

Now you have got the double of items to customize, every My Menu supports a total of 12 items.
Dozens of menus scattered around? Not anymore!
Concentrate all your Playlists or emulators in a single list.


THE SUPER SKIN THAT WORKS LIKE A LITE SKIN

The Aeon MQ 5 uses in the base the Ace Skin code, with this was possible to include many resources in the code without sacrificing performance.
The Aeon MQ 5 has a performance a lot superior compared to its predecessor Aeon MQ 4.


EXTRA PACKAGE

Would not be great to acquire all the themes, background images for the weather, icons and logotypes with only a click?
In Aeon MQ 5 this actually exists, you download only one package and gain access to all the extra package.


NEW STANDARD THEME

Rubro, is the name of the new theme. New background images with red colors for a impacting visual.
Besides the new theme, trough the extra package you still have 5 other themes available or can create your own theme.

I just had to do a double take, because when I saw the title, I could not believe my eyes! You've done a great job. Honestly. The interface is so clean and smooth yet more options are available. Great skin. I echo Wanilton. Congrats.

I was testing this skin with Gotham since a few weeks and i must say ii's by far the best skin i ever used (and i used *A LOT* of skins). More, it's incredibly fast and really an huge improvement upon AEON MQ4. I can even say it's nothing comparable to AEON MQ4, it's like a brand new, shiny and gorgeous skin, with absolutely all the whistles and the bells that XBMC can brings.

So, thanks a million for this incredible piece of work MarcosQui!

Thanks for this fine release.

So lets start with the suggestions:


1.the NR (not rated) Movie Flag is missing.

2. the movie Posters should all have the same size, stretch when necessary would be nice.

[Image: vAP26tc.png]

3. when movie file name contains "AC3D" ( i have some of those) the 3D icon is displayed, but these are not 3D Movies.

4. HDDVD is showing DVD flag

still testing.....

Just a little thing: with Gotham, widgets for video playlist doesn't seem to work, message: script failed, random and last items (or maybe i'm doing something wrong)

How do I access view types? I can't get there from either movies or tv, also the default fonts seem just a hair too small but that might be my old eyes

Double tap up, like you would to view trailers in MQ4, I had to figure that out as well.

Looking nice I switched to Nox when MQ was pretty much unuseable with Frodo but the shiny glass look of MQ looks so nice.

Trying to get back in to the different style now Wink
