First off, thanks for the skin!! After being unhappy with how much of the fanart the default skin covered, and being unable to get Aeon working how I like, I found this skin, and find it perfect! Big Grin

I only have 2 small requests:

-Option for 10 movie titles at a time instead of 15 in fanart view

-Option for wide banner to show at TV show selection in fanart view (in upper right hand corner... maybe even an option for 50 percent transpency?)

may i ask why you would like this option?
do you think the list covers too much of the fanart or is something else ?

yeah, currently it's only at season level in fanart view.
i'll try if i can squeeze it in at tv show level too.

Yeah, I like to see more fanart... the DVD cover image and the flags are perfect, but I'd rather see a bit more art than 5 more movies...

Just me though.

fair enough. i don't like the idea of making an option for 'just 5 movies', but maybe i should make the list a bit shorter by default.

i'll think it over. ;-)

5 more movies... ie, 10 vs 15... I agree 5 wouldn't be enough!

My opinion would be that you leave it 15.I personally like to view more movies (don't see that as a request ).And with the Transparency look you still see
more fanart than normal

Personally I like the more the better since I'm scrolling through movies to find what I want to watch not enjoying the beauty of the fan art and believe me I worked hard to find what I have and do enjoy the effect just the same. However thats just my opinion.

To get more Fanart use a differnt view like the one that scrolls the DVD cases across the screen on the bottom.

[quote=clock2113]-Option for wide banner to show at TV show selection in fanart view QUOTE]

Mine already shows the wide banner if I have it in the folder. Actually it will show poster, wide banner or fanart if I want it to. Has this already been implamented awhile ago and I missed the post?

I hate it when I miss something on here and I am already screwing around with it in the skin. Better not be hiding any wargames blow up the world stuff in here, or I will find it and kill us all. Sad
