Which menu? The one popping up when pressing "S" like in this screenshot?

As you can see in the background of the screenshot music is playing. I have also activated the "Home Visualizer" option in the menu but nothing happens. Do I need another mod to get this working?

yep because is in the same folder as the fanart!

you can do 3 things
1. Edit the code to only display one static fanart and loose the slideshow
2. make another folder for the cdArt and put all the cdArts there but if you have one or more albums named the same you will have problems
3. make a subfolder inside the artist/band folder and put the cdArt there this is the code to edit
Code:
<control type="image">
            <description>Cd overlay</description>
            <width>270</width>
            <height>228</height>
            <posx>112</posx>
            <posy>-143</posy>
            <texture diffuse="home/disc_mask.png">[color=Red]backdrops/artist_fanart/$INFO[MusicPlayer.Artist][/color]/$INFO[MusicPlayer.Album].png</texture>
            <!--<texture>home/cd_overlay.png</texture>-->
            <aspectratio align="bottom">keep</aspectratio>
        </control>
the part in red is the path to the artist/band folder just add another folder and add the name to the path like this
Code:
backdrops/artist_fanart/$INFO[MusicPlayer.Artist]/<new_folder_name>

Then I only get
[Image: musicvisualization2.th.jpg]
which still has the Aeon menu and no artist fanart and all the OSD information isn't there either which leads me to the conclusion that I'm either totally stupid on this one Oo or I'm missing some mod/tweak Confused

Btw these are the ones I did for testing:

Kelly Clarkson - Breakaway: [Image: breakaway.th.png]
Kelly Clarkson - My December: [Image: mydecember.th.png]
Kelly Clarkson - Thankful: [Image: thankful.th.png]

am not at home but my version of auriga is the one before the current one(june 8,09) and my version of XBMC is RC1 so its related to something else.

whats exactly your problem now Viking ?


and Montellese your problem is you can get to the Visualisation screen ? if its enable under settings your suppose to get there pressing menu or back from the Home screen in my case on a Mac I can accessed pressing back or menu because is the same button.

http://www.xbmc.org/wiki/?title=Music

*weird it is Visualization or Visualisation ? the xml filename is MusicVisualisation but in the wiki said Visualization.
