Rainbow  [MOD] Another Aeon Night Version (Update 03-08-2009)
Post: #1
Udpate: Anacotic asked me for the source files, so here is the source file of the multiplex_tablet: download

So here is my Aeon night mod. You get a full themed Aeon with the following mods:
  • Complete (1080p optimized) night theme (no light theme available)
  • New Multiwall view (screenshots below)
  • DVD cases
  • Watched overlays
  • Trailers in Multiplex & Multiwall view
  • Flow for multiplex
  • Conditional Weather Backdrops (has to be fixed)
  • Latest added on home screen (has to be fixed with now playing panel)
  • Slider dialog
  • New now playing panel

Next update will have:
  • File manager
  • Smart playlist editor
  • Low list
  • fixes for conditional weather & latest added

Some advices to the native flagging which is included in this mod:

  1. Enable "extract media metadata information" in settings -> video -> general
  2. In the studio tag of your nfo has to be only the studio name, e.g.
    Code:
    <studio>Walt Disney Pictures</studio>
  3. XBMC can't extract the meta informations from .isos or .vob files, so you have to add them manually or use an app like ember media manager


Download aeon night mod on github

Nice job, 'black! I like this much better than the "standard" night textures.

No, you must have folder.jpg for main season image and seasonXX.tbn (X = number of the season, e.g. season01.tbn for season 1) for season thumbnails in the folder of the actual tv show. There is no option in Aeon to use the fanart.jpg as thumbnail, but you can simply take the same image for folder.jpg or seasonXX.tbn.

Yes, I'll add it as an option after I've finished the night theme for all system elements.

Here are some more screens (alomst everything is done except system settings):

Lasted a little longer than I thought but here is the update with full night mod (almost... some dialogs which I've never seen are not skinned) including title mod & dvd cases (just a test and only for multiplex now). I've also tweaked some images (8 -> 16bit for better gradient quality).

If you want to use your own Includes_Mediaflags.xml (the one for native flagging is included), see first post for instructions.

did a fresh aeon to try this and erm not sure..... got my flags working no problem
when I press "s" the menu is messed up it's like got a wave effect in it lol tbh I don't like it, vizulisation option won't stay "on"

[Image: screenshot003.jpg]

love the dvd covers would love it even more if you would add them to showcase aswell and do the same for audio cds alot to ask i know but think it's worth it

or can you break the dvd cover mod down so you can install just that alone (and showcase and audio cd's) <----- if you did that you would be my hero Tongue
