It's already a feature in XBMC which can be done through the pictures window.. This mod just adds a seconds pictures tab labeled 'comics' and points the window to a different source that you specify in settings. So that way pictures will use the square frames and comics will use the dvd style frames.. (and because having comic backdrops on the main menu is cool) Big Grin

Can a cbr reader be used at all here to play back cbr files?

Or do you have to have all teh comics stored as seperate images?

This is probably goign to sound stupid to some and is probably obvious but I have not worked it out yet Smile

OK.. my son has loads of cbr comics and I have installed the comic stuff. It shows cover art etc and allows me to select a cbr comic. HOW though do you change page Smile

Could someone explain how the artwork works.

I have my cbr's in one directory and another directory structure for artwork.

- do I create an identicle directoty structure for artwork as comic cbr's

- do I name cover art as the same name as the comic cbr files or just folder

- is it possible to have fanart for actual comic in background when browsing comics

just a couple of questions Smile

Main one though is an explination of how the artwork is stored.
