I dont seem to be able to set a background folder for weather, it just shows up black when i set a folder. All other backgrounds work ok, but setting one for weather including one that is known to work in other categories doesn't seem to work.

In log this shows up:
21:59:42 T:2696393952 M:2491183104 ERROR: GetDirectory - Error getting /Users/Chris/Pictures/Background/Weather/27/
21:59:48 T:2696393952 M:2490269696 ERROR: GetDirectory - Error getting /Users/Chris/Pictures/Background/Weather/27/
the folder i set though, and tried setting again is "/Users/Chris/Pictures/Background/Weather/" i.e. not with "27/" on the end.

i think this is why it isn't working, Have i done something wrong in a setting?

p.s. and if i make a folder called "27" and put a picture in it tis does not work either

You need to set weather fanart folder. Or set settings / skin / general / hide weather fanart.
And you can set a normal weather background folder Wink

p.s. weather fanart/27/ could work you just need to be lucky that it is that kind of weather Laugh

Hey Waffa!

What do i adjust in "includes.xml" so that the video playing sets itself as a background (rather than fanart or custom back ground). It happens in confluence but i dont understand what to change to make it like that.

I only ask as i like to see who is in the film i am watching and what other films they are in whilst watching it and the small box in the corner is a little small to carry on watching whilst checking that.

Many thanks

You can find that peace of code in Includes.xml line 1016
<include name="VideoOverlayUI">

I suggest you make it bigger, I quickly tried fullscreen and then it will cover everything.

But if you really want to, it is possible fullscreen, sorry I'm not going to I like it this way.

Thanks for the speedy reply, i tried your suggestion but it didn't quite achieve the result i wanted.
I want the video to go behind all menus etc and replace fan art like in confluence, here is an example:
http://picasaweb.google.co.uk/pseudo7/XB...7847145426

Here beerfest is playing in place of fan art.

Is there a line or two to replace or is it much harder?

I know what you mean Smile

It's a little harder.
VideoOverlayUi is now top, try to get it only on top of the backgrounds.

And no it doesn't work if you place VideoOverlayUi higher in includes.No
You need to call VideoOverlayUi before commonviews and commenforegrounds.

ok will give it a try!

Thanks Waffa!

Im getting blank default screens for all BG.I see that you can customize all pages which is a cool feature.But Im just wantin to test on my Xbox and see how smooth it acts. I read you had added some BG around 1.7 or 1.8 but how do I enable it? Some of the SS you posted looked very good.
Thx

Nope there are no default backgrounds, you need to set your own.

To let it run smootly on your xbox you need !!! To hide some views.

Got to system/settings/skin/backgrounds to set your backgrounds folders
And see all other tabs to hide views for each section, how more you hide the smoother the skin gets.

Edit:
See here first post for downloading backgrounds.

thx for quick response. I saw you got some of the BG from PDM because they looked good and loaded quick. I will look around and see if I find some. I do need to have a separate folder for each of those groups in skin settings?
Anyone have a pack of BG that you know of?

TY I grabbin them atm.. I will mess with it a bit today and see how it feels and if my wife can handle changing the skin again.LoL
I will also look at the Genre pack and see if I can sort it out too.
thx
