So the trade-off is you get something that’s guaranteed to fit immediately from scrape, anything you put there just works because you get the image intended by the creator. But then you lose that nice big zoomed image on those fanarts it does actually work for.

I can get you the previous Spotlight corner info later unless Achilles comes back to you sooner.

I changed the diffuse overlay because it was also obscuring too much of the fanart but it definitely needs some work to hide the borders a little better. I’ll look at that tomorrow.

Yes please, I'd like to try it out. The previous diffuse overlay and fanart size before looks way much better.

I'm not convinced with that at all to be honest.  As I mentioned, for those few fanart it does work for, it works really well with a nice big focus on the top centre.  But mostly, it's just cutting off the bottom half of the fanart as well as the left and right sides which tends not to work well.

Also, having the bottom of the fanart hiding behind the poster really isn't a good look with it being visible between the poster gaps. For clearart that could work quite well I'd imagine but not poster/landscape. Also, the black space with clearlogo, spotlight row details, plot etc, work so much better with a spotlight image that doesn't encroach on it's space so much. Netflix just get's this right so it made sense to copy it.

Here's a classic example of it not working well vs the update:

And here's the original diffuse I had to to improve (that still needs a little improvement) vs the update, although I think the mod is still using the incorrect version at the moment.

I have been a long time Bingie user and was disheartened when Cartman moved on to better things. I have been paying attention to this thread and just kind of waiting until most of the bugs have been worked out before switching over. The overlay and and zoomed in spotlight image size was the one thing Cartman changed that I didn't agree with. You guys are awesome for taking the reins on an already awesome skin and making it better will be testing it soon.
