[MOD] BIG Alaska
Rename poster.jgp to folder.jgp, that should fix it. You'll have to rescan everything though, If you don't select the thumbs manually.

coregis Wrote:My TV posters are showing up as vertically stretched banners. Movie posters are just fine.

I have posters by default checked in the TVDB.com settings, and I manually put a landscape.jpg and banner.jpg in each folder. There is also the poster.jpg file as well.

I then tried rebuilding the entire database by scratch, by erasing MyVideos.db and Textures.db from the userdata/databases folder, as well as the entire thumbs directory.

I still get the stretched banners.

Any ideas? Search finds one person with the same issue on another skin but no answers.



EDIT:
Ok, of course I figured it out.

I had "banner" images as my folder.jpg files from a previous scrape or something. Manually renaming a "poster" image to folder.jpg fixed it.

No, sorry but those items haven't been localized and will have to wait for a future update.

Hi Amra,

First of all, thanks for your wonderful job with BIG Alaska. I cannot user another skin now that I have this one.

I am currently running XBMC 9.11. I've seen that you have posted a new version of the skin, but only for Dharma.

Are you planning to backport this latest release to Camelot? I can't wait for the latest changes you have implemented, and I don't really want to come back to git and compilations to see it live.

Many thanks!

Amra, could you give me some pointers to make submenus in home style 4 always visible? (so i don't have to click on down to see the submenu)

I've already modified the includes to always show the background image for the sub menus but it seems to me i have to modify the layout of the wraplist for the main menu. Am I correct?

regarding home style 4.
Is it possible to have seperate background images depending on section, if thshows is focused then 1 image, if movies are focused, then another etc ?

Can't seem to find out how, i can add a dir, but that will affect all sections ?

Otherwise, homestyle 4 is really nice !

Edit your Includes_Home_4.xml file (back it up first, just in case) and search for "<!-- Submenus -->" to take you to the relevant code. Next (It sounds like you've already done this, but in case anyone else wants to), go about 10 or 11 lines down and find:
Code:
<visible>Skin.HasSetting(HomeClearOverlay) + ControlGroup(9001).HasFocus</visible>
change this to:
Code:
<visible>Skin.HasSetting(HomeClearOverlay)</visible>
Now for what you asked, keep looking lower and in each submenu section you will find a line of code similar to this from the programs/addons submenu section:
Code:
<visible>Container(300).HasFocus(1)</visible>
Just delete this line to make the sumenu buttons always visible. The only thing that will change for each submenu section will be the "HasFocus() number.

Stop when you reach the "<!-- Clear Overlay Home Stats - Videos -->" section.

Let me know if that works.

[EDIT] It didn't. Confused

I'll have to see how easy that would be since some of the new changes include code for Addons, etc. I'll get back to you...


@gekados
Thanks & I originally tried to do it that way (like Aeon) but was doing something wrong with the code to where there would not be a smooth transition of the fanart between menu items so I ended up going the easier route like I've done which I tend to personally like anyway.

Just for you, though, I can take another look at and if successful, post the changed files here. Big Grin

Nope, it doesn't work... if i do that when i press down i see all submenus at once, all on top of each others.
The fact that i don't understand is why i have to press down to show the submenus, since the visible condition is
Code:
<visible>Container(300).HasFocus(1)</visible>
it shoud be only necessary to have focused the first element of the container with id 300.... Am I right?

Whoops, I didn't think about that happening.

I hate to say it but I'm not sure if I know how to do what you are asking. Sad I just figured out how to do the submenus the way I did (still learning so I'm happy I got that far). Perhaps someone else who may be reading this can chime in with a solution.

Hi Amra.

Aprreciate it, you're always trying to fix everything people requests Smile
Was just wondering if the option was there and I'd missed it. Don't spend time on this, i'll just change the pics in media/home4 manually to suit me Smile
Seperat artwork folders/section would be really nice though Rolleyes

New update is rad!!! Smile

A couple of things:

1. Media Info List seems to hide the very last item on the list. Maybe the media flags at the bottom are cutting it off?

2. In the options for Homestyle 3, there's a misspelling close to the bottom: "Hode Suspend". No biggie.

3. Hitting Exit from Tv Shows or Movies used to take you back to the home screen, but now it jumps up levels (TV Shows > Exit, and you see Genres, Titles, etc as opposed to the home menu). Is this intentional, or is there a way I can change it?

Still playing around, but I love it! Homestyle 3 isthe new hotness. Smile

1. Good catch, I hadn't noticed that before. I'll work on a fix.

2. Whooops, sumtimez I'mm all thumbss. Big Grin I'll check it out.

3. Which home style are you talking about? I'm guessing Home3. If that is the case, you can change that by editing the Includes_Home_3.xml file. Go down to about line#128 and you will find the code for all the menu items.

If you want to change Movies to return back to the main menu, then look for this block of code:
Code:
<item id="4">
                    <description>Movies</description>
                    <label>$LOCALIZE[342]</label>
                    <icon>home4/movies.jpg</icon>
                    <onclick>ActivateWindow(VideoLibrary,movietitles)</onclick>
                    <visible>!Skin.HasSetting(nomovies)</visible>
                </item>
and change "ActivateWindow(VideoLibrary,movietitles)" to "ActivateWindow(VideoLibrary,movietitles,return)"

basically, any menu item you want to make return back to the main menu, just add ",return" as in the example given.

That's it & thanks for the kind words.
