Multiple Genre Fields In NFO?
#1
Is it possible to use Multiple Genre Fields in a nfo file?

i.e.
Code:
<movie>Event Horizon</movie>
   ..
   ..
   ..
   <genre>Sci-Fi</genre>
   <genre>Thriller</genre>
   <genre>Horror</genre>
   ..
   ..
</movie>

Right now I believe multiple Genre fields are handles as this:
Code:
<genre>Sci-Fi / Thriller / Horror</genre>

And that seems to work with XBMC Media Companion.

Although multiple genre fields would be a better solution and more standard XML.

Cause sometimes i can be real stupid!!!

I actualy did try it as soon as i got home, I'm working on a program similar to XBMC Media Companion at the moment which acesses the Video Libraries themselves, updates info from from NFO's & And acts as a middle ground for media managers Like Ant Movie Catalog, eXtreme Movie Manager, and so forth, basically it translates the tags from the XML and ties the data to XBMC tags, uses that information to write the nfo's and from there can either update the database(without launching XBMC - which i find useful forthe fact that i run my XBMC from my server on all my HTPCs in my home, and they use the same video/music databases, in essence updating all 3 libraries at once). I just needed to know hat fact so that i could know if itwas feasible to write out to nfo in that way. Was writing some code to output the XML at work when i asked, didn't have XBMC available. just a case of impatience i guess

hehe okay you are forgiven Wink

eggman, then xbmc companion does it wrong. while that works i believe it wont get the movie properly registered in each genre. i might be wrong long time since i wrote that code

I will update MC,
When I frst wrote the program I based my nfo files on the exported XML, which output the genre as "<genre>Sci-Fi / Thriller / Horror</genre>"

At least it did when I last used it.

billy,

possibly it did. however, that is only the internal representation, users might want to change the separator etc (configurable through advancedsettings), so i believe we changed it

Is this still the case - .nfo files have to devide genres into elements like
Code:
<genre>genre1</genre>
<genre>genre2</genre>
<genre>genre3</genre>

instead of storing them in one tag
Code:
<genre>genre1 / genre2 / genre3</genre>

Emer still uses one tag and XBMC does not have a problem with it or it does?
