Fan Art - Digitalhour - 2008-10-07 05:24

I just started using fan art and i was wondering how come it take so long to load it via my xbox and my PC is this an XBMC problem or a skin problem??

With loading do you mean the time it takes before the fanart shows up while browsing your movies or the time it takes to scrape for fanart?

The Time it takes to load the fanart when browsing my flixs..

What is the resolution of your FanArt images? and at what resolution are you outputting your Xbox to your display?

If they are in high-definition then they will slow down the Xbox tremendously as the Xbox only have 64MB of shared RAM which limit the Xbox.

You will want to run your Xbox in no higher than 720p, and also scale down your images to even lower resolution than that, (like for example 720x480 or maybe 960x540)

The skin loads the fanart after 2 seconds, so if it's taking longer the problem lies elsewhere like big images as Gamester17 mentioned for example.

anyway of making the fan art show faster then 2 sec? like as soon as you roll over the movie it shows?

look for these two pieces of code in the file includes.xml:
(Should be around line 720)
PHP Code:
<control type="largeimage">
            <
description>fanart image (movies viewtype)</description>
            <include>
screentype</include>
            <
texture>$INFO[listitem.property(fanart_image)]</texture>
            <
aspectratio>scale</aspectratio>
            <
visible>System.IdleTime(2) + Control.IsVisible(54) + !Skin.HasSetting(MovieFanartViewEnable) + Container.Content(movies)</visible>
            <
animation effect="fade" start="0" end="100" time="300">Visible</animation>
            <
animation effect="fade" start="100" end="0" time="0">Hidden</animation
        </
control>
        
        <
control type="largeimage">
            <
description>fanart overlay (movies viewtype)</description>
            <include>
screentype</include>
            <
texture>fanart-overlay.png</texture>
            <
aspectratio>scale</aspectratio>
            <
visible>System.IdleTime(2) + Control.IsVisible(54) + !Skin.HasSetting(MovieFanartViewEnable) + Container.Content(movies) + !IsEmpty(listitem.property(fanart_image))</visible>
            <
animation effect="fade" start="0" end="100" time="300">Visible</animation>
            <
animation effect="fade" start="100" end="0" time="0">Hidden</animation
        </
control

and lower the System.IdleTime(2) to 1 or remove that condition for no delay.
You could also lower the fade in animation time (value 300) or remove it to speed things up.
