Weather FanArt Pack (Backdrops with different weather conditions)
#96
Nazgulled Wrote:I fixed my problem, not sure if it helps others or not but let us recapitulate what to do to make this work:

1) Place your weather fanart folders (00, 01, 02...) somewhere you like, ie: D:\Backdrops\Weather.

2) Open PM3.HD Home.xml and search for the "Skin.HasSetting(Home_Enable_Custom_Back_Weather)" string inside a "multiimage" control.

3) Add an <imagepath> tag with "D:\Backdrops\Weather\$INFO[Weather.FanartCode]" (without the quotes). And comment the <info> tag, this is what solved it for me. Save the file.

4) Open XBMC, go to skin settings and enable the custom weather backgrounds. There's not need to sepecify a folder here.

As an example, here's the default "multiimage" control on the PM3.HD default Home.xml file:
And here's the changes as explained above:
Note the bold lines...

This has worked for me Big Grin I tried to understand what the <info> label does exactly but was not able too, but without it, it solved the problem for me.

Hopefully, this will help others having the same problem... What would be nice is to have proper support for this on the PM3.HD skin, without having the need to do manual changes to .xml files. This sucks because when we update XBMC, these changes will be overwritten No

Were you working with pm3 earlier? This whole discussion before was about mediastream, unless i was completely misunderstanding. Anyway, glad to see you got it working. The info tag is essentially the same as the multiimage tag in this case, but you can use it with infolabels.

Also, home.xml in pm3 isn't likely to change much in the near future. I think you'd be perfectly fine just making sure to save a copy of your home.xml and copying over with it each time you update xbmc. It may be a bother to have to do this everytime...but hey, its a mod.

And I wouldn't really call this a hack or tweak so much....It is a feature that was added by an xbmc team member to serve this very purpose (it is however a hack/tweak of the pm3 skin). But, those seriously interested in the feature seem to be a rather small percentage of xbmc users and one of xbmc's main goals it to keep things simple. They really like to keep things like skin settings to a bare minimum. I'm guessing this is why it hasn't been added. If more people showed interest in weather fanart, that might change. Then again I could be way off here, but thats my opinion on the matter.
