Show "Plot Outline" instead of "Plot" for movies
#1
This feature seems to be in demand, but Kodi and Skin makers alike keep refusing to include it as a setting. Luckily, it is easily accomplished by editing a file yourself. There are some old threads about this already, but below is an instruction for Aeon MQ 6, as it is a bit different.

1. Make a backup of the file IncludesVariables.xml in folder %AppData%\Roaming\Kodi\addons\skin.aeonmq6\720p

The %AppData% folder is found in your C:\Users folder for the current user. It is hidden, so you need to show hidden files/folders.

2. Edit the file, and search for "value_plot". You will find an xml element like below:

<variable name="value_plot">
<value condition="![Container.Content(files) | Container.Content(addons) | Window.IsActive(pictures) | SubString(ListItem.Path,videodb://movies/sets,left) | Window.IsActive(500) | Window.IsActive(501) | Window.IsActive(502) + [Container.Content(albums) | Container.Content(artists)]]">$INFO[ListItem.Plot]</value>

3. I have marked in bold where you need to edit. Change the text "ListItem.Plot" to "ListItem.PlotOutline". The xml element should now be:

<variable name="value_plot">
<value condition="![Container.Content(files) | Container.Content(addons) | Window.IsActive(pictures) | SubString(ListItem.Path,videodb://movies/sets,left) | Window.IsActive(500) | Window.IsActive(501) | Window.IsActive(502) + [Container.Content(albums) | Container.Content(artists)]]">$INFO[ListItem.PlotOutline]</value>

4. Save the file. Start Kodi, and enjoy! Smile


Oh, and one more thing: You must enable "Show plot for unwatched items" in the video settings, of course.

Thank you. But do you know how to make this possible for the Aeon Nox Skin?
