Let me know what you think.

I like it personally, although I'm not so sure on the background - it seems a little to dark and dull.

Yeah, at first glance it gives the impression that a texture didn't load in the background. Some stronger gradation would hopefully fix that, though. It would be *neat* if it supported conditional weather fanart as well, but that's a very easy thing to mod in if it's not something these guys are interested in.

I absolutely love it.

I love fanart, and so many skins fill up the fanart with crap I don't need like
Xvid logo's or starts and so on.

Finally a skin which leaves the fanart full!
I absolutely love the fact that the covers and logo's are at the bottom.

Video OSD needs some work though Smile I love AEON's homepage, somehow the titlebar looks very very good. But the list view in music and views in movies are crap.

Am curious what you will do with the music view, so many list views are cluttered and block the fanart. Hope you can figure that one out too! Nod

There won't be a music view.

Also we have changed the OSD, I just haven't updated it yet. I wanted to make it full screen but keep the style I had so this is what we came up with.

Sorry but why ? I personally loved the first one. Now it's like in any other skin.

Well, after seeing it working, neither of us really cared for it. Because it wasn't very tall, to make text larger and easy to read on it wasn't possible without it looking bad. Doing it this way, we have more room and can have larger text.

I also think its more stylish than the other one, even if other skins have something similar.
