You need to change/add tags twice in the file.

**Wow Search FAIL, Apparently searching for Europa didn't return this topic, that I had ironically posted in... *facepalm* oh well.
In other thought, which is correct, white or black images?
I also threw together a small script that could be used to keep track of all of these rather than a forum post, it's just an idea:
It has the one I made on it.
Presuming other others don't have a problem with it, i'll start adding more as they appear here, and eventually add a user add button.

haha i've been messing with it for a bit, as in now it actually has more than one image, I have added a add page for users to upload (not enabled, i dont have captcha on it yet )
Basically right now it's too tough, I feel to find these images in a forum. I could totally see this thread used for requests, then they all get posted to this script for all to download.
Eventually (next week) I hope to have something like a checkbox system, for example:
You need image X,Y,S,P,T but none others, so with some clever ajax magic, you check boxes next to those images, and a single zip file is presented to you with all the images you requested, and the xml in 2 seperate files. Another option would be to upload your current xml file, and have the script modify it.
Also, maybe i'll but a b/w tag in the xml file so the script can handle either black or white images (i'll actually do that now)

The idea seems nice, though downloading a single zip from the forum seems like a better option, as it's pretty much a one-size-fits-all solution: you don't have to pick the flags you think you might need - all are there, including the ones you don't know yet you'll need.
As to black versus white images, both are fine and both work exactly the same. IMHO there's absolutely no difference for end-user, so there's really no need to use the white version anywhere.

Well it's just a little project that i've already started so I might as well finish it, i'll at least try to keep it updated.
The thing is that there are a LOT of obscure studios out there, and I guess there could be a zip of them all, but when does that get updated? When it does, I don't want to get them all again, especially sorting through the XML code for 200 or so studios when I picked up a copy just the other day, and found out I needed one more. Basically I'm just bored and thought it would be something cool to do.
Also: no reason the script woulden't have a "Download all" once i get the zipping working
Since I set this up using XML, i'm thinking i'm gonna just have mine auto download images, that way I would never have to update, but that is a little while down the road...

could the "packed" zip your site would provide also contain code that you just could cut and paste into the media flags xml ?? cause if it did that would be kewl
- FernFerret - 2009-04-09 10:08
I was thinking that you would just upload YOUR .xml file, and it would modify it, and include a new one in the .zip. The issue with doing it your way (not really an issue as your way would be much easier ) is that you would have to paste twice.
- pletopia - 2009-04-09 11:47
yeah .. twice .. but youdon't have to deal with uploading a file and then downloading it

Hmmm. The latest .xml file by Stagecrew is somehow broken, my labels do not show up properly any more. Anyone spotted where the problem is?
Speaking of which: how does Aeon know which gfx to display? If the xml file is the key, then perhaps we should use the names that are used by MIP - that is the names taken from the IMDB database. However, it also appears to be coping quite well with shortened names as well, while IMDB uses full names at all times (like Kamera Film Studio instead of just Kamera). Anyone?
