You have to create shortcuts (.lnk files) of your PC games, put them into the same directory and use them as roms. You will found more information on the corresponding WIKI page here : http://www.gwenael.org/xbmc/index.php?ti..._shortcuts and the corresponding youtube tutorial here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyfRa7gygEc

This tutorial is for internet browsers, but it is the same way to proceed for games (internet browsers and games are all applications) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyfRa7gygEc

Post here the content of your launchers.xml file. So, I will know how do you have setup your PC game launcher and maybe understand why it is not able to found your games.

Advanced Launcher is not dependent of any skin and skins, normally, works all the same way. So I will not make tutorial specifically for Aeon Nox. If you are not able to use Advanced Launcher using Aeon Nox, use another skin.

The launchers.xml file is the file where Advanced Launcher store all the launchers and item information (setup, paths, data, images, etc...). You will found it normally here :

Code:
C:/Users/USER_NAME/AppData/Roaming/XBMC/userdata/addon_data/plugin.program.advanced.launcher/launchers.xml file

That is the settings.xml file not the launchers.xml file.
