Dummies Guide to Extended Artwork doesn't seem to be working for me...

@Karellen

I've followed your Guide at the top, I've created the "Artist Info" folder outside of where my Music files are. I've exported the library, and it created 2000+ folders with the following files in each folder (artist.nfo, fanart.jpg, folder.jpg).

You then say to "Refresh an Artist for additional online information, the NFO File will block the attempt. Delete the NFO File for that Artist, (or all Artists depending on your requirement) to access online scraping." How are you going about "Refreshing Artists to download additional Online Information"?

I've also created the advancedsettings.xml file (just like yours at the bottom), and made changes to the Universal Artist and Album scrapers, yet I don't download any additional Artwork, and neither is the Artist.NFO file contain anything other than the Name of the Group, (Which is weird because the Artist.nfo files I get from using MediaElch have tons of information on the Artist in them).

I see your example of a Music folder with lots of Artwork (banner, fanart, logo, folder, etc), but I believe you say at the very last line of your post that "4. The Universal Artist Scraper does not download extra fanart. The extra fanart must be manually sourced." So did you just copy all those artwork into the folder, or did you use some program to download them for you (ArtworkBeef maybe?).

Also, you list Artist Slideshow add-on, which I'ved used in the past, but when you configure it to use the "Artist Info" folder, it downloads all the extra artwork into the Extrafanart folder folder under each Artist in the "Artist Info" folder. Perhaps you can share you settings with Artist Slideshow to fix this issue.

Thanks for you help with this.
