Lightbulb  [MEDIA CASE] Aeon MQ 5
Post: #1
In this tutorial I will teach you how to create your own media case package for video.

1 - Open the MediaCase_MQ5.PSD file and create the boxes respecting the models - dimensions and colors: HERE

2 - You need to create all 24 boxes.

3 - Save the boxes, 1 by 1 in PNG format respecting the names: thumb_box_0.png .... until thumb_box_23.png

You created a cool Media Case pack and want to share? You can.
See THIS TOPIC 'HOW TO CREATE THE XBT FILE'

Theme by devilshura HERE

I have 2 style to share.For uses new cases,move the download .xbt to your Aeon MQ5 media folder.

Simplecase.xbt or highqualitycase.xbt) and place alongside the original textures.xbt in aeonmq5's media folder. You can then go to "Appearance" under "Settings" (where you change skins) and change the "Theme" setting from "Default" to whatever you called your new xbt file. After a slight pause you'll find your new cases loaded. This allows you to have several case designs (simply add another xbt) and keeps the original xbt in place aswell.

*update both with new color flags
Gloss_color flags_R3
Glass_color flags_R3




Recomment for Glass case in show case view.You will need to fix poster overlap by edit "ViewsShowCase.xml" in "C:\Users\your username\AppData\Roaming\xbmc\addons\skin.aeonmq5\720p" from line 60-66 like this.

So It will be fixed

As promised (although somewhat later than planned) I attach my custom textures.xbt which includes the media cases I designed last year.

I hope you all like them. Feel free to share, I only ask that you credit me and link to this post if you do.

Here's a preview of my amended original design, so that it can be used with MQ5.

I'll post the full png collection once I've been able to test it out within the skin.

Any chance of being able to use our own media flags too?

Not for this build, maybe later.

OK, thank you. It would be great if you could as the design above places the flags behind the casing.

Dear users,

I had a new idea and I will change the format of this feature. The new format will bring back the themes of texture as it was in Aeon MQ 2, this will allow each one to change all the textures you want, including, boxes, flags and everything.

Soon I will give more news about it, stay tuned.

No problem, for transparent cases I have to make some minor adjustments.

@all, to use external cases will need to create an XBT file as I mentioned in another topic. This file may be included in the official skin, if it is popular.

Another option is to implement the external cases in extrapack, do not know if it is necessary.

Please let me know your opinion.
