Lightbulb  [THEMES] Aeon MQ 5
Post: #1
In this topic I'll explain how to create your own Image Theme for Aeon MQ 5 skin:

1. Create a root folder with any name like MY THEME.

2. Inside this folder create 21 folders with the following names:


addons (with pictures about addons and applications)
aplaylist (with pictures about music playlist)
autumn (with pictures about Autumn season)
concerts (with pictures about music shows)
disc (with pictures about CD, DVD and the like)
favourites (with pictures about favorites)
games (with pictures about games and emulators)
livetv (with pictures about TV reception and the like)
movies (with pictures about movies, HTPC, etc ...)
music (with pictures about music)
mymenu (with personal pictures about theme, abstract)
pictures (with pictures about photos)
programs (with pictures about apps)
settings (with pictures about settings or system)
shutdown (with pictures about shutdown)
spring (with pictures about spring season)
summer (with pictures about summer season)
tvshows (with pictures about of TVShows)
vnodes (with pictures about playlist video or something similar)
vplaylist (with pictures about playlist video)
winter (with pictures about winter season)

* Folder names must be exactly like these otherwise the corresponding image will not be loaded.

3. Within each of these folders created above you can put one image or multiple images on the same topic, the Aeon MQ 5 will display images in slideshow form.

4. Basically any type of image is accepted, I recommend using JPG with resolution 1920x1080 pixels.

5. After you have created your theme, go to SETTINGS/settings skin/THEMES. Set MY THEME and then enter the path of the root folder MY THEME we created in step 1.

Done, your images will be shown immediately.

You did a very nice theme and would like to share? You can.
Create your theme, put some pictures in this thread and leave the link to the package in zip format so it can be downloaded by anyone interested.

.. and Good themes. Wink

I have created a holiday theme if anyone is interested.

[Image: P3GcpRI.jpg]

Here is the thematic style I created for the theme.

Let me know what you think.

Download

I have found that when you create your own theme the default images still appear when entering certain menu items. To fix this you can replace the originals in addons\skin.aeonmq5\backgrounds(I left the Extras folder alone). I have just backed up and deleted them and it defaults to a black background. There is also a folder for Kids Movies and Kids TV if you have created those items in the main menu. Just point your background folder to the corresponding named folder.
