How Do I create this view ?

I searched "logo" in the Episode view I found this :
Code:
- <control type="image" id="7016">
  <posx>20</posx>
  <posy>35</posy>
  <width>300</width>
  <height>116</height>
  <texture background="true">$INFO[ListItem.path]logo.png</texture>
  <fadetime>100</fadetime>
  <aspectratio scalediffuse="false">stretch</aspectratio>
  <include>Animation_HiddenByInfo</include>
  <include>Animation_Viewtype_Episode_LeftSide</include>
  <visible>Control.IsVisible(51) + [Container.Content(episodes) | Window.IsActive(videoplaylist)]</visible>
  </control>
- <control type="image" id="9016">
  <posx>20</posx>
  <posy>35</posy>
  <width>300</width>
  <height>116</height>
  <texture background="true">$INFO[ListItem.path]../logo.png</texture>
  <fadetime>100</fadetime>
  <aspectratio scalediffuse="false">stretch</aspectratio>
  <include>Animation_HiddenByInfo</include>
  <include>Animation_Viewtype_Episode_LeftSide</include>
  <visible>Control.IsVisible(51) + [Container.Content(episodes) | Window.IsActive(videoplaylist)]</visible>
  </control>
I simply change "logo.png" by "character.png" and the position (posx and posy) and that'a all !
Code:
- <control type="image" id="7016">
  <posx>50</posx>
  <posy>510</posy>
  <width>200</width>
  <height>200</height>
  <texture background="true">$INFO[ListItem.path]character.png</texture>
  <fadetime>100</fadetime>
  <aspectratio scalediffuse="false">stretch</aspectratio>
  <include>Animation_HiddenByInfo</include>
  <include>Animation_Viewtype_Episode_LeftSide</include>
  <visible>Control.IsVisible(51) + [Container.Content(episodes) | Window.IsActive(videoplaylist)]</visible>
  </control>
- <control type="image" id="9016">
  <posx>50</posx>
  <posy>510</posy>
  <width>200</width>
  <height>200</height>
  <texture background="true">$INFO[ListItem.path]../character.png</texture>
  <fadetime>100</fadetime>
  <aspectratio scalediffuse="false">stretch</aspectratio>
  <include>Animation_HiddenByInfo</include>
  <include>Animation_Viewtype_Episode_LeftSide</include>
  <visible>Control.IsVisible(51) + [Container.Content(episodes) | Window.IsActive(videoplaylist)]</visible>
  </control>

RE: [MOD] CharacterArt support inthe Episode View - Steve_ - 2012-04-27 20:57

The Razieal's Landscape view Smile


RE: [MOD] CharacterArt support inthe Episode View - Razieal - 2012-04-27 21:00

hahha @ razieal's landscape view

lemme try it n give u feedback Smile


RE: [MOD] CharacterArt support inthe Episode View - Razieal - 2012-04-27 21:16

copied file but getting strange behaviour when i switch to landscape view characterart appears just for a sec then disappers happening in all tv shows.......any reason or solution ?
restarted and refreshed xbmc library as well

actually problem is tvtunes when theme is playing the characterart doesnt show in landscape i just stopped theme music and characterart appears so here is our problem mate...can you please look into it thanks


RE: [MOD] CharacterArt support inthe Episode View - Razieal - 2012-04-27 21:35

yeah its conflicting with tvtunes just double checked..hope there is a solution to this its weird tho

btw characterart looks great in landscape perfect positioning mateSmile


RE: [MOD] CharacterArt support inthe Episode View - Steve_ - 2012-04-30 13:47

Ok , I fixed it
=> http://www.mediafire.com/?ndps7pxus51f8w3

Razieal, I've got an idea :
I would like to create a rule. This rule is character.png = a group of character and create character1.png, character2.png ......
In this way :
In the razieal landscape view, we could have a lot of characters ( for example : Kyle, Kenny, Cartman and Stan)
In the episode view, we could have the group !
Tell me what do you think about it !


RE: [MOD] CharacterArt support inthe Episode View - Razieal - 2012-05-01 16:12

steve really thanks for fixing that issue its working fine nowSmile

as for new idea really i think its brilliant idea my only concern is do we have enough characters on fanart.tv for tv shows?

but still you should work on it and demo it
i was thinking i dont know if its possible but can we make character art show in shows landscape mode just like in episode landscape mode?
