    Hi! Thank you for an excellent theme!

    I prefer browsing my media in "wall mode", it looks good and there's a bit of space between the posters so the background images are still visible, not all blocked like in "small icons". But, quick question: is it possible to customize the tile/poster sizes? The current view is about 2 x 6 posters. I would prefer something like 3 x 9 probably, as it gives a better overview of a large collection on a large screen :)

    Maybe its just me who is an idiot, but how do I get the skin? there is no link to any download?

    Well since I already had the previous version, that auto download function was not available for me, because it does not update through that.

    How do I enable imdb ratings support?

    I've always had difficulty with this - I could never get rotten tomatoes to work either. Currently it just says something like '6 rating' with no logo at all - no idea where it is getting that from.

    Awesome skin btw. Agree with earlier poster - this skin and OpenPHT are the best things about Plex these days, sadly. Great work.

    EDIT: Never mind, I did a final refresh all and it worked! Done that a million times over the months, the second I post for help it works lol

    @SteveMcNally

    I like issues that I don't have to do anything to resolve the best. :)

    @tapomirbowles

    Are you on OpenPHT 1.7.0 (Official Release, not the preview release by @bkury released a few weeks ago) or OpenPHT 1.7.1? The preview release wasn't connected to the skin repos, so it won't download Aeon Nox 5.3.2.

    If you are on the official OpenPHT 1.7.1 and Aeon Nox 5.3.2 still doesn't show in the updates, then you can download it manually here:

    I'll definitely look into this in the future, but it'll be months away. Working on a pretty huge update right now that will take some time to finish (basically bringing over the Aeon Nox 5 home menu customizer functionality ala Kodi Aeon Nox 5 -- do to the differences in how the two work, I'm not really porting anything, but rather writing it all from scratch, will be very cool when it's done). Revamps of each of the viewtypes are planned (already did the List Viewtype), and eventually I'll get back to that, and will include your suggestions for the Wall Viewtype (and actually your suggestion was already on my todo list for that -- basically viewtypes with posters will get size options).

    This stuff is very time consuming, I work on Aeon Nox everyday (usually for many hours), and the todo list instead of getting shorter just gets longer and longer. So, I'll add your suggestion, but have patience, it'll be a while.

    A well deserved compliment from my side. Yesterday I updated OpenPHT to 1.7.1 and the skin had some small issues, just a few hours later I see that there is an update for Aeon already... Amazing! Everything looks perfect again.

    Keep on the great work mate !

  • tapomirbowlestapomirbowles Posts: 81Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    And we all appreciate the work you are doing. Your skin is the best out there hands down. So keep it up, and let me know if I can help out. I am photographer and graphics work, so if you need logos, graphics or something for the skin, just let me know, and I´ll be happy to help out (other textures for the home menu bar as an example haha, since it bothers me that there is not 50 different ones :))

  • MagnumDoomguyMagnumDoomguy Posts: 488Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    I'd like that. As I've said many times in the forums here, I'm not a graphics guy, and can only handle the most basic of graphics tasks. I'll send you a PM.

    OpenPHT just updated to 1.7.1, but the skin is still 5.2.3. How do I update it without losing my current settings?

  • MagnumDoomguyMagnumDoomguy Posts: 488Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    @krad23,

    You can manually download here: https://github.com/magnumdoomguy/skin.aeon.nox.5/releases/tag/v5.3.2

    The settings are stored separately from the skin (the settings are located in guisettings.xml, outside of the skins/addons folder).

    The manual update process depends on the system you have.

    I seem to unable to use "circles" for the unwatched indicators, it uses the colored circles regardless. I can swap to ribbons just fine, but the white circles don't seem to work. Any ideas?

    @bucketachicken, (what an awesome handle)

    I just tested and you are correct. I'll fix that for the next release. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    @MagnumDoomguy thanks for the quick response! Sorry to immediately ask something else, but is there any way to get the "Hide Suspend/Shutdown" style options that I've seen in other skins? My Mac just crashes any time those are pressed (on any skin) so I try to keep them away from visitor's tempted eyes, lol.

    Really enjoying the skin btw! With the OpenPHT update figured I'd try a new skin, and glad I did!

    Actually, something along those lines is exactly what I've been working on as the main theme for the next update -- a massive fine-tuned home menu customizer, basically allows user control of what the home menu contains. Would allow what you asked above.

    Am I going crazy or the "icons" view (with two rows) is no more, and instead there's a "small icons" view with three rows? How can I change the icon size?

  • MagnumDoomguyMagnumDoomguy Posts: 488Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    @zpaolo11x,

    Both should still be there. Can you provide a screenshot of the viewtype selector in the leftside menu in a place in the skin where you expect to see small icons?

    There's also an options button on the bottom for the viewtype selector which allows you to disable viewtypes (to make the list shorter and easier to navigate). Is there a chance you have small icons disabled in there?
