Nice one. Should have read the user manual
Working Well - twotime - 2011-05-17 00:53
Running beta3 on my Windows 7 ion box with xbmc 10.1. It works great. Can't wait to see this integrated into a few skins.
I would love a hi-res version. Why not default to the Fan Art when there are no hi-res images available?

it might be possible, but someone already requested *not* to filter out low-res images.
so to suit everyone's needs it'd have to make it user configurable.
but then the next question is, will there be any consensus on what would qualify as high-res?

Why not let the user adjust a minimum width and/or height of images to be shown?
As divingmule stated here, width and height is returned by last.fm API within the URL.

That seems to make the most sense.
Is the plan to turn this into a vis that can be enabled and disabled so the user can switch between milkdrop/etc and the slideshow?

nope, not by me anyway.
i haven't got the slightest idea how to code a vis.
maybe someone else will pick it up at some point...

yeah...why not ;-)
you can configure the minimal width and height on the addon settings page.
you'll have to delete the old cached images if you want to get rid of the low-res ones you've previously downloaded:

Just tested v4 on Windows XP with XBMC 10.1.
Nothing wrong with this one. Simply does what it shoul do!
Excellent work, Ronie Thank you.
Now I´ve got to find a good compromise between quality and quantity...

Looking awesome Ronie..thank you so much.
Now just waiting to see this fully integrated into skins as a visualisation replacement! I know Sharpe was waiting for this to be completed before doing that for Backrow...

the artist slideshow script is now available in the addon repo (both dharma and eden-pre)
if you're using T! svn and previously installed the skin mod,
please remove it and put the unmodified file back in place
before updating the skin (if you use the T! svn googlecode repo).
thanx to all for testing it. :-)
