what about movies with two audio streams? which one is recognized? the primary, i guess?! couldnt you allow to add two flags to appear? like ENG and DEU!?? That would be really nice, cause at the moment i have the language flags disabled, cause there are too many movies with two languages and if it shows only one i am confused^^


but, i understand if these would make too many flags. and too many flags seem ugly to me as well

Well there are 2 reasons why this is not implemented (although I'd like it as well):

1. As you already noticed there would be too many flags showing. What if a movie had 3 languages or even 4 (yes I have a movie with 4 audio sources)?
2. As far as I know there is currently no way of determining whether a movie has more than one audio source in the skin engine. There only is this ony item which returns the primary audio source language and nothing else.

What colour scheme are you using? Please tell me that's not "Night", because mine just does NOT look as hot as that. You saving all the best stuff for yourself?

Seriously, you do fantastic work, sir. I'm in awe, and back and forth between Alaska and Aeon (the current Aeon65 release).

I seriously can not decide which one to use. Daily! Like, every single day, I swap themes, and look, and enjoy, and watch. I think Alaska superior in its menus and layout options, while Aeon has a bit nicer (sorry) main menu choice. I just can't get past the blue squares on Alaska, and I dislike the PNGs (maybe I haven't found a set I want) and I can't use vertical text...

BUT, when I get inside the skin, I see the layouts like above that simply DECIMATE the Aeon views (I liked Multiplex, but had to switch to Showcase for easier readability) and then you see almost a FULL SCREEN representation of the box art in Alaska - it takes your breath away. Everything is so much smoother, and faster, and nicer... It shows how much of your own personal level of quality that you have put into it, and we all appreciate you for it.

Dammit. Why must you make me choose?

Subtitle language support has been added for the next release.

I've just asked but currently we can only use the first subtitle language but as soon as multiple languages can be used I'll simply use a fadelabel to show each one consecutively in the same panel.

The language flag is in the code for a while now. But you have to enable it in Alaska's customization settings.
