Not sure if anyone has noticed yet, but local fanart has now been added to music.

added: ticket #4834 - Local Music Fanart. stick fanart.jpg in the artist folder. we assume some/path/artist/album/

I will probably put up another version of my old aeonmod that incorporates this if I get time this weekend. No promises though as I am quite busy.


Huge thanks to Spiff for this one. That guy is pretty damn amazing.

So, the file just needs to be called "fanart.jpg"?

That's freaking sweet. That grumpy bastard did it again. Big Grin

Now if only there were a website that they could be scraped from.

They look very nice. I haven't had a chance to use them yet because I've been so busy working on the set I just finished. But from what I've seen, they're really good. Big Grin

You know, I thought the same thing. Like, I just downloaded Wrong Turn so I could use the new art, and I'm really thinking about getting the Reaping. Big Grin

What pack do you guys recommend me to get.I want any backdrops that don't have to be changed to work in bigger skins like MediaStream and Aeon.

I use Xbox to run my XBMC and have it set at 720p.I use the lighter Mediastream mod for less ram usage just so I can change my backdrops on my home screen.

Well, Theoretically you could use all the packs posted here at 720p. But I have been using the xbox untill last month and it's my experience that using backdrops and fanart at 720p in combination with a fairly large DB is a no-go. I only used Aeon, but Mediastream is no difference.
So I think you gonna have to resize the 720p pictures you can download here. I resized all the backdrops for the Xbox with about 20%. You can do it in bulk with the tool Irfanview

Hope this helps you.

I have the same with Pulse. And Soulsurvivors. And I think I'm gonna rip my Cube DVD's just for the hell of it. Cool
