Full Version: Fanart and dvd/bluray cases question
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
When I browse my "tv shows" folder on "videos" i can see the fan art and thumbs but when i browse my "bluray" folder on "videos" it doesn't show fanart, only shows the dvd case. is there a way to get the fanart to show on my "bluray" folder on "videos" just like it does for the tv shows?

2nd. When browsing my "bluray" folder under "videos" it shows dvd cases but if i go on "movies" on the home screen it shows bluray cases for the same movies. Is there a way to get it to show bluray cases when browsing under "videos" just like it does under "movies"?

Thanks

if you want fanart in filemode, best is to store a fanart.jpg image in each movie folder (assuming every movie is in it's own folder).

nope, bluray cases will only work in library mode, not in filemode.

i do have a fanart.jpg in each movie folder, is there anything i have to do to enable it?

Ok, is this something that could somehow be enabled in the future?

strange....i need a Debug Log of you browsing your bluray folder to see what's going wrong.

nope, the skin needs the 'video resolution' info to decide whether to show a dvd case or a bluray case.
this info is not available in filemode.

Will do when I get back.

Could i just change the dvd image to a bluray image so it always shows a bluray case? since all i have in that folder are blurays. If so where is that image stored?

all skin images are compiled into one file, Textures.xbt
the image sources are available in the T! svn.

How would I go about replacing that image in textures.xbt? It sounds like its something out of my skills level Big Grin I'm probably just gonna have to leave it like that.
ok so i figured it out lol. the fanart was in each folder with the movie but it was named moviename-fanart.jpg so i renamed it to just fanart.jpg and now it shows up. Nod

Now if i could just figure out how to default to bluray cases instead of dvds... Big Grin

Any help on that matter would be greatly appreciated.

thanks again.
instructions on how to checkout the T! source from svn are in here:
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=83643

after downloading, check the media directory and replace:
- case-dvd-inside.png
- case-dvd.png
- disc-dvd.png
with their bluray equivalents.

last step in to run Texturepacker on the media folder:
TexturePacker.exe -i media -o media\Textures.xbt
and replace the Textures.xbt file in the skin with the newly created one.
Awesome... Thanks a lot!
