Hi,

There's a few clearArts I'm missing, and they're almost all British comedies lol....if anyone would be kind enough to make them for me I'd very much appreciate it. Or if someone could give me a link containing a guide or something on how to make them yourself, I would happily give it a go Smile

These are the shows;
  • Blackadder
  • I'm Alan Partridge
  • Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere
  • One Foot in the Grave
  • Outnumbered
  • Peep Show
  • Phoenix Nights
  • Robin Hood
  • The Inbetweeners

Thanks.

Thanks for all your hardwork guys, much appreciated!

Quick question, is this only for TV shows or can this also be done for movies?

Actually I try to find out a way how to upload some cleart that I have made but I can not figure out how. Is that feature only visible if you got an account and have signed in to it or why can´t I see any way to upload?

Thanks for any info on that. Would be a waste if I use what I have created only on my XBMC, right?

....and one more question! I have created a clearart for use on my pc. It appears on the show on pause but now I recreated it but the old version still is showing up. How that? What do I have to do to get my recreated clearart? I am sure it is something about an cache or so but don´t know how to handle it. Any help out there? Thanks.

Having this for movies would be a sweet idea. It would enhance the main & pause menus.

Did you find a solution to this? I too am having this problem.

I downloaded the TopCat logo, but apparently that one is not properly transparent. I've deleted logo.png from the actual directory...but it has not helped. I've removed TopCat from the database and then re-added it, but no luck. I've also refreshed, but it is still there.

Can someone point me in the proper direction?

How do you mean? Is this why my seem to randomly logos disappear from the TV Show listings when my drives have been disconnected a few days?

Thanks! Smile

Wish there was a version of confluence setup for the ClearArt that keeps the modded 7 icons at the bottom for addons. ClearArt seems like a decent, fun, interesting idea. Kind of like to see it become common place. Reminds me of the kind of thing tv stations do have done for a while.
