Film studio Flag Icons - Post new ones here! - Halibutt - 2009-04-05 12:42

Get the latest versions from FernFerret's site:
How-to
  1. Download the latest version of the pack
  2. Unzip it to your main directory for each skin (for example "..\XBMC\skin\Aeon\")
  3. When prompted to overwrite files chose yes. This mod doesn't delete any code, what it does is to add studio logos and some code to make them display properly


FAQ
Q1: Why do I still see question marks instead of my movie producers' logo?
A1: There are two possible explanations. Either the pack doesn't include the logo, or there's no info on film studio in the .nfo file for that film.

Q2: How do I add the producer's name to the .nfo file?
A2: The easiest way is to use Media Info Plus. Just install, run, scan your media and voila. Be sure to check the option named "Support Skin Based Flagging" (Settings/General tab).

Q3: Where do I request new labels to be added?
A3: Here. Posting a link to a logo to be used would simplify things a lot.

Q4: Why do I see two logos displayed, one over another?
A4: The MIP solution is kind of simplistic. What it does is to make Aeon display all flags that fit the keywords stored in the .nfo files. If there is more than one production company mentioned in the file, all will be displayed - one over another. To prevent that either edit the relevant .nfo file by hand and leave only one company there, or use MIP for that.

Q5: What if I need only one particular logo?
A5: No problem: just go to this site and look for it there\

Q6: Is there a way to make MediaInfoPlus show the media icons I chose for my films?
A6: Sure, just copy the flag pack to MIP's directory: ..\MediaInfoPlus\customimages\media\flags. That's it!

No problem. Newmarket logo is too tiny though, it doesn't look that nice IMO. Got any better image to work on?

This any better?

i went through my library yesterday and found some missing studios:
Imagine Entertainment
Lakeshore Entertainment
Marvel Enterprises and/or Marvel Studios
Village Roadshow Pictures

these are tiny production companies so it might not be easy/worth it to add:
Andreevsky Flag Film Company
Ascension Pictures
Les Chauves-Souris
Picture Farm

Actually this is the one I used. However, it's a matter of proportions: in order for the logo to be displayed properly I have to resize it to some 120 pixels in width. And then the letters become too small. Don't they have a squarish logo design as well?

Four more: Buena Vista and two versions of Lakeshore. And a Polish defunct studio Czołówka (crappy logo, will have to rework it).

Enjoy. PS, they are slightly different, though it seems on this background the differences are invisible.

EDIT: Working Title added

Does anyone know if we can change icons for coloured ones or has the skin been written to only use minimal bitp deaths.


- pletopia - 2009-04-05 17:38

i think there just b&w cause of asthetic choice .. to match the skin


- MrTourettes - 2009-04-05 17:41

Shame. it would be nice to add some colour to them.


- pletopia - 2009-04-05 18:28
