the real problem with that is that I dont even know how to test it.

questions
1. your xbmc is in Hebrew?
2. you show info is scrape in Hebrew, so your .nfo are in Hebrew
3. your machine OS is in Hebrew?
4. you have filenames in Hebrew in your OS ?
5. is Windows, linux, mac ?

can you send me any show .nfo ?
This project needs a multi-lingual mastermind to help test Laugh

Hello !
I come with a little idea...
what about making seasons specific cleararts ?
The code would look like :
Code:
<control type ="image">  
    <posx>1049</posx>    
    <posy>-176</posy>    
    <width>230</width>    
    <height>184</height>
    <texture>cleararts/$INFO[VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle].season$INFO[VideoPlayer.season].png</texture>
    <aspectratio align="right" aligny="bottom">keep</aspectratio>  
    <visible>VideoPlayer.Content(episodes) + Skin.HasSetting(episodecoveronseekbar) + Skin.HasSetting(episodeclearartonseekbar)</visible>
</control>
and the file is named like this : "show_name.seasonX.png"
for example : "The simpsons.season4.png"
Talk for the new stuff is here now.

Having the season too would be cool, a lot more photoshopping though, unless it was the clearArt with just a season number on it, that could be done pretty easy.

I like the idea but don't follow the code.. where the images are suppose to be ? in the same folder as the clearArts
Here's another...

Image
add it
Do you mean for me to add it...I read the first post and didn't see anything or we're you just meaning "added" it.


***Find me an image you'd like to see as a clearart and I'll cut it up in Photoshop***
sorry already added to the gallery

sorry for bumping this - but i really really want to use this mod Nod
Imaginos may be able to help you as he uses french.


Just a quick side-note for anyone photoshopping clearArt:

Please preview your images on both a black and white layer and remove as much traces of colour from the edges as possible with your eraser tool before uploading, to ensure highest quality, thanks.
the problem is french use characters, hebrew they are like symbols.

BTW in thetvdb.com those shows are not in hebrew do you edit those .nfo manually
