These haven't worked for a long time. iirc they are no longer provided by omdbapi so there is no source for them unless someone has the $60K or so necessary for a rottentomatoes API key.
@marcelveldt - Posted an issue on skin helper backup some months ago about it not backing up and restoring skin shortcuts setup -- seems the issue is still there, and have had a few reports from other users about it not working. I couldn't see anything useful in the log, but I can get you one if you would like (not sure if I need to turn some other add-on debugging on somewhere?)

EDIT: Btw, looking at the backup zip it looks like the skinshortcuts settings are saved, but they aren't restored when using the restore function.
@jurialmonkey - can u answer this q for me please?

Is there a way to save the metacritic ratings/ revenue/ budget details so that I dont have to wait for the info to load everytime I run kodi?
Hi Marcel,

I'm just posting it here too, because I dunno if you track the issues on GitHub:

Quote:Hey Marcel,
This function seems to be broken.
In my case I'm calling it with:
Code:
<onclick>RunScript(script.skin.helper.service,action=setkodisetting,setting=videolibrary.tvshowsselectfirstunwatcheditem,value=2)</onclick>

But nothing is going to be changed and the log throws an error

Hi Marcel,

I'm scraping art for the tvshow "Me, Myself & I" and I'm not getting any art from tvdb for this show for some reason. I am getting art for this show from other sites. And my other tvshows are scraping tvdb just fine. I'm not sure what is happening? Thanks.
Hi,

using the script with OMDb and TMDb API. I get budget, revenue, rotten tomatoes rating and metacritis all shown correctly.
'Awards' still don't seem to work. Am I something missing or is this feature gone for now?

If you enable to grab artwork from local folders (in the addon settings) it will use that data. Only if there are no images locally and if it's enabled it will use the scraper to get the images.
You can check whatever it collected if you press the contextmenu. Also note that I fixed a bug yesterday where the local image was never getting overwritten by the selected image. And another note is that the Kodi image system can sometimes confuse you if the same filename is replaced by another image.

It maybe sounds crazy but using the online sources (not saving locally) works best. The image is in that case also cached locally so it really doesn't matter.


I am having a problem that for some shows I have content in an /extrafanart folder.

It never loads the images in this folder.

I noticed in the above post it was stated that for it to do this I must select the option "to grab artwork from local folders (in the addon settings) " I do not see this option anywhere. Where should it be? (When I look at the Skin Helper Service Addon it does not give me an option to configure anything, using version 1.1.23)

I have series recordings and I just want the widget to search in the folder with the name of the recordings that have included my own poster or folder.jpg. I don't get this to work and the pvr widget keeps showing black thumbs most of the time.

Open the settings for Sin Helper Widgets add-on and make sure that artwork retrieval is enabled for the per widgets.

That was already enabled.
When I set "Download artwork to my custom folder" and I replace the downloaded images with my own images should the PVR widget pick up the replaced images the next time or not. Or does it download and overwrite the existing images in the custom folders?

I found out that when I add my own images to the custom folders that were automaticly generated in my custom folder only become visible when I delete the simplecache database and let it rebuild the next time I open Kodi. Is there a way that this database updates itself with the new added images or do I need to delete it everytime new images are added?
Is it possible to get the no.of critics from metacritic.com?
yes.... but need Marcel to include info from this Api (with permision of owner ) Smile

This is basic info , Api have more but need Api Key
