I like Freestyle very much and I don't like Aurora's interface... So I've spent some days to understand how Freestyle works and let it download covers and description again (and avoid crash errors!).
So I've created a script that modify Freestyle XEX to let anyone set another URL (localy or remotely, as you wish). I take my inspiration from this old project : https://github.com/Gualdimar/fsd4ever
Then I've created API to return all descriptions and images, which can be hosted on a Apache server.
I have now a hosted version of my code, which propose a lot of covers and descriptions in several languages, but I don't know if people here are always interested by Freestyle and if I can propose it here. I don't know if it is legal too...
Now my Freestyle version works well, with no crash. Images are better compressed too and Freestyle seems to be fast than before to display pictures.
Let me know if you are interested.
