    I guess my point is there is rarely a messenger ;)

    Aeon works fine in the default 720p display.

    When i change the resolution to 1920x1200, i lose the text in the GUI.

    I fixed this before by copying over something to a different folder. I can't remember what i did. Can anyone help?

    Is anyone seeing this 'Not available in this build' problem? I can't get my beloved 'Wide' icon view for TV.

    Hello, if anyone can confirm that AEON skin is not showing “Now Playing” in Music category correctly in OSXBMC….for some reason I’m getting black screen instead of Now playing window. http://idisk.mac.com/sebastianzz/Public/xbmc.jpg

    I wonder if it fixes the problem I've seen with the last few versions I've tried where bringing up the OSD when playing video shows a single-line of corrupted pixels across the middle of the screen (GMA950). Anyone else noticed this?

    Anybody else having problems with the font sizes in this skin?
    Sometimes they get very large (when switching between normal and full screen for instance)

    Also, it tells me to use a newer build of xbmc? Maybe that has something to do with it?
  • ChoccyHobNobChoccyHobNob Posts: 270Members
    I get the font size issues as well, only happens when switching between windowed and full screen and then back again. You have to remember this skin is still only alpha, it hasn't made it to beta yet even.

    You can report it here if you want. djh_ the author is in active development at the moment so you stand a good chance of it being dealt with.

    Well first off, wanted to thank AEON developers for creating such an awesome interface. I hope this becomes the ultimate interface for xbmc, since i just got on the bandwagon and started using OSXBMC.

    A quick suggest to the developer for backdrops. Since i read on the blog that all the backdrops for AEON were converted into UHQ-JPG's for solving bandwidth costs. I was wondering what if the backdrops could be provided in .TIFF format, since we would have to convert each .JPG into .BMP for smooth transitions and as JPG is a lossy compression format. It does reduce the file size significantly based on the amount of compression, but converting it into .BMP format would be like up-scaling SD to HD. Contrary to this, .TIFF format is considered is a lossless format just like .BMP but the file size is very comparable to .JPG and can be easily converted to .BMP without any loss in quality while maintaining bandwidth savvy file size.

    If possible i can convert all the original .BMP files to .TIFF format ready to be uploaded if someone can email or fileshare me the original .BMP backdrops. I have all the movie backdrops in their .BMP format that i will be converting to .TIFF format and uploading the link to them. I will really appreciate if someone can upload the .BMP backdrops for music, pictures, tv shows and games to rapidshare or torrents and notify me.

    I want everyone to have as pleasant experience with xbmc as the developers intended.

    I agree this skin is looking very beautiful. I am new to all of this, but hey we all start somewhere. :)

    Do check out the AEON [ALPHA] (formerly "Xephyr"): Skin Release Thread over at xbmc.org.

    for 175+ pages of discussion. djh_ (the creator of this skin) has loads and loads of responses and effort he is pouring into this.

    ON another note, thanks for the porting xbmc to OS X. I was excited to see this. :)

    Trying to get this skin to work right but it just wont.
    List view just does not look good and the info screen is all screwed up. Very different from what the screenshots at aeoncentral show.

    Any help?

    Try setting "Force GPU Fix" or something like that under Aeon->Features settings.

    I get the same line of corrupted pixels, not too bothered about it, but yeah it's there. I do remember it not being there in a few versions back, but don't know if it's earlier versions of Aeon or OSXBMC.

    Thanks, that did help with the list view issue. Though it does show a 1pixel line through it but I can live with that.

    Still waiting for that skin that beats all skins. One that works seamlessly on a Mac mini...
    I would love to create a theme but do not have the resources and time to go digg in to the whole programming bit of it. (The design I can do though.)
