That did the trick. Thanks.

Ahh, saw that now after reading the whole thread... thanks.
Looking forward to Eventghost integration! Nod

Another thing, could we get the option whether tokens like "the" should be ignored or not?
I really like my "the" in sorting of movies/audio... Wink

Sure we will add a option to settings to disable the 'THE' ignoring in sorting.

Hi Dawid,

I seem to be having some problem with transparent backgrounds on my custom thumb covers, On some occasions but not always the transparent backgrounds appear white in xbmc constellation, but I have no problems with them in XBMC
the thumb are saved as .png's and if I flush the cache in constellation they show ok for a while

I here is a picture of what I mean

seems that constellation cant deal with a transparent background when displaying your movie case ... i would swap the image and not have a transparent base if you know what i mean or edit the image you have with paint program on windows and get rid of the transparent border

Hi formula

Yes I know that would be the ideal solution for now, But I am not graphic expert No
will see if Google can help Smile

thanks guys for your replies

I brought this up with the png's awhile back. It is slightly annoying, but it's not that bad knowing it will be in a future version so not really worth redoing all the images.

Yes I know the images I used look smaller in Constellation then the normal ones, but looks fine in XBMC anyway. Smile

Yes nice to know it will be fixed

I wanted a different colour case for collections and it would seem that is not an option at moment, So I have had to switch off the case mode in xbmc and integrate them into the thumbnail, a bit of a pain but think it will be better in the end, also a lot of my bluray that are in .ts folder format don't show the proper cover in xbmc and I have tried everything, so seem like this is the only solution

here is when it is working right

Do you have those covers ? I think it would be a grate idea to add them as a option so constellation would apply them automatically.

That'd be great if they were part of Constellation, then my bonehead (lazy) friend will stop begging me to create set icons for "My Little Pony", "Dora", and other children shows. (Note, I have NO problems with kids, wish I had some, but since I don't, it feels weird to be trolling little kids sites for usable images especially since I just turned 31 last week)
