Beta Artwork Beef - automatically add extended artwork
@SteveSmith  @Karellen 

"characterart" folder is not officially supported in kodi or ArtworkBeef or anywhere else, or any kind of convention.

It was integrated to my idea as a kind of experimental Easteregg for movies to display multiple characterart in a sideshow. Latts made it available to TvShows as well.

It works my knowledge only in AeonMQ7 Krypton and Leia Mod in the RightListView.

You have to copy the. Png files yourself into the characterart folder!
For TvShows take the characterarts of fanart.tv
If you also want to experiment with movies you will find here a characterart starter pack for movies collected myself:

In the meantime, I have changed the code for myself so that the characterarts alternatively works with ArtworkBeef system directly via the TvShow root folder, not the characterart subfolder.
It is limited in AB to 10 characterarts, if you want to expand you can do it yourself in AB in "ADDITIONAL ART TYPES FOR TV SHOWS (COMMA SEPERATED)

If you want the same system for movies you have to name your characterarts the same like TvShow if you have your Movies in folders and using not a Moviename suffix, if you are using Moviename suffix, then Moviename-characterart.png, the same way you also name you other arttypes (clearlogo, clearart...) but that you have to do all manually!

I will suggest to @latts9923 to make the feature available through the ArtworkBeef system. If you want to implement it yourself you have to change the following code:
ViewsRightList.xml:

Change
Quote:<imagepath background="true">$INFO[ListItem.Path,,characterart/]</imagepath>
to
Quote:<imagepath background="true">plugin://script.artwork.helper/multiimage/listitem/?refresh=$INFO[ListItem.DBID]&amp;&amp;arttype=characterart</imagepath>

Ignore my folder extracharacterart and not characterart (I just adjusted the naming to extrafanart and extrathumbs):

TvShows without ArtworkBeef
-> $INFO[ListItem.Path,,extracharacterart/]
Image
TvShows with ArtworkBeef (up to 10 can be set to download in AB - more manually download and set in Additional Artwork Types)
-> plugin://script.artwork.helper/multiimage/listitem/?refresh=$INFO[ListItem.DBID]&amp;&amp;arttype=characterart
Image
Movies without ArtworkBeef
-> $INFO[ListItem.Path,,extracharacterart/]
Image
Movies with ArtworkBeef (all download manually and set manually in AB in Additional Artwork Types)
-> plugin://script.artwork.helper/multiimage/listitem/?refresh=$INFO[ListItem.DBID]&amp;&amp;arttype=characterart
