Very nice addition, as a new user of XBMC I found it all to easy to get lost in the original MediaStream menus

looks good.

one thing about picture window image wrap. the original would show the thumb (guessing) of the highlited picture, then background load the image. this worked well for picasa plugin.

your version does not do that. it stays on the image that loaded until the new one is finished loading. is this the way the new image loading works?

For python coding questions first see http://mirrors.xbmc.org/docs/python-docs/

I am not using a mouse, using a remote. I did work out that a blue glowing arrow means a "hidden" menu. So that works. FYI: I am using a CRT so some things on the edge can be difficult to see depending how good you have things setup.

Haha... OK, I did not notice the "move right" on the Settings menu, honestly I didn't.

Thanks heaps for that info, it seems like I may be able to do whatever I need in that bit.

Yep ok, I am using 9.04 on Gentoo Linux.

Looks great. Looking very forward to getting off of work and trying this. One thing I was wondering. I see you have fanart for "Fanart in Video Files Mode". Does this also include fanart for music in file mode? If so maybe you can add it to you list of new features. Thanks!

Jezz this is amazing. As much as I love the eye candy of Aeon, it always just didn't feel as "functional" as PM3 or MediaStream. This is the perfect blend of functionality, simplicity and eye candy. Nod Thank you for releasing this, you are truly one talented guy.

Jezz_X,
Do you want bug reports or is this a take it or leave it type thing?

If so, Ive had this skin exit out of XBMC and return to the desktop for no reason 4 times now in the past 10 mins of playing with it. Just let me know if you want logs or situations.

If you can figure out the reason sure. our at least provide a glimmer of reason. I have been having problems with the latest svn on windows crashing out on me. but revision 21257 (and lower) has no issues at all. Its odd though that linux has no issues.

But anyway the issues I had was the Infowrap view in the video library It just didn't seem to like that anymore

"image removed"

I personally hate all the only a few items visible on the screen ones. yes I know it shows more fanart but I wont be adding that, but like I said in the first post. "feel free to mod the crap out of it" yourself

Same here, I thought I was just me. Actually I've been having problems with Aeon too, I'm thinking it *might* be related to the Recently Added script.
