    1.5 looks great. Thanks a lot. I've noticed something that may be a bug, but before filing a full bug report on the AKAIO forums, I want to see if anybody else has the same issue.

    I blew out my __aio folder (after I backed it up) and copied the new one from 1.5 to my uSD card. I then copied over all my themes into the new UI folder. When I go to select a theme in AKAIO 1.5, instead of showing the full names for the themes, I am getting old dos-style names. For example, instead of seeing "New Super Mario", it shows "NEWSUP~1". GlobalSettings.ini is also using the "NEWSUP~1" nomenclature.

    Can I have a few people check out how this is behaving for them and reply back to this thread. If everyone is having this problem, then I'll file a bug report. If some are and some aren't, then we'll see if we can't figure out what's causing the problem for those that have it (like me).

    I got the same thing, but its fine. It doesn't cause any problems when using the skin.

    But it does make it difficult when you have a few themes with similar names.

    Correct me if I'm wrong here, but is this different from AKAIO 1.4? Did 1.4 show the theme/skin names a little better? Looking at my old GlobalSettings.ini would imply that 1.4 used the full theme names.

    It is because the name is too long. If the name is, I believe under 8 letters then it is fine.

    I know that it is truncating to old DOS style 8.3 naming convention because the folders are longer than 8 characters. My point was that AKAIO 1.4 didn't do this. I just downgraded and confirmed that AKAIO 1.4 showed the full folder name for the themes.

    I'll go file a bug report on the AKAIO forums.

    It's not a bug.

    Get used to it.

    It's not too big of a problem for me. Looks like I'll just have to rename some of the folders, that's all. [​IMG]

    If you want to see the full name of your UI folder by all means downgrade back to 1.4.1. I'll just stick with my plan. [​IMG]

    I agree to this new themes naming, long names don't fit in the little box anyway.

    I pretty sure it has always been that way. If its under 8 characters then it shouldn't do that.

    As I stated in my OP, it wasn't always that way. It's changed since AKAIO 1.4.1. If this is how Normmatt intended it, then so be it, but it is a change in behavior from the previous version.
