damn ronie, i think you nailed that baby!
using folder level sorting is just what needed to be done, and plain logical, if you think about how everything else is being handled. did you talk with reaven about that? it even solves the multi-language issue as well!
would love to see a preview, though.
now what else could i badger you with today?

yes, i mentioned it to reaven, i think in his cdart thread...
i also think this way is best, specially if you want some kinda cross-skin support for it.
if you store all images in some Aeon subfolder, like reaven is doing, then it won't work anymore as soon as you switch to a different skin.

don't bother, there's already more ideas in my head then i can possibly ever implement ;-)
currently i'm working on a fanart view for games.
now there's not really much to display since there's currently no games library in xbmc, but it does look nice imo.
since i'm no gamer, let me know if someone's got some ideas one what else to display in this view.

yeah, i think a strong support for pvr and a games library is what xbmc is missing right now to become the do-it-all in the living room.
I think there's a thread going on about a game library, talking about what should be in, which site to scrape, and how to handle native (windows/linux/mac/xbox) and emulated games (mame/zsnes/whatever else). worth a watch.
but the pvr branch is probably the next "big" thing that's gonna hit the screens.

pang Wrote:I need to make cd art for my singles music, i don't have albums, is that possible?. all music have the album image inside their tag, so if i add the cd art to each single music it would be great, all music are in one folder.
i haven't tried it myself, but i think it should be possible. You'll have to modify some code though. In MusicVisualisation.xml change this line:
<texture diffuse="disc_mask.png">$INFO[Skin.String(Music_Folder_Path)]$INFO[MusicPlayer.Artist] - $INFO[MusicPlayer.Title].png</texture>
then create your cdart images with this name: Artist - Title.png and store them all in one directory.
pang Wrote:Also would it be possible to add fanart to singles music too?
since you keep all your music in one folder, it will not work in filemode.
it may work in library mode, but you'll have to test it yourself.
scan all your music using one of the build-in scrapers and see if it works.
maybe you'll have to manually add the fanart for each artist using the artist info menu in xbmc.
pang Wrote:Secondly, the only thing that sucks a bit in your skin are the images, if you could change them would be great, some are nice but most are horrible.
there all gone now, the next release will come with a new set of background images.
you can also select your own backgrounds if you go to Settings > Skin Settings > Backgrounds
pang Wrote:EDveryone concentrates on music and video but forget about pictures, if you could add some cool views for pictures. I saw a program which had some great views, it was like horizontal rectangles, with the tite being the folder name, usually the album description and pictures that can be browed horizontally or you can select the album, and you can browse all albums moving vertically through the horizonal recxtangles.
certainly agree with you there. i've got one or two ideas for new picture views already,
but if you can provide a link or screenshot of what you're looking, for i'll see if i can add that one too.
Wide Buttons + Horizontal Home = crash - Kryspy - 2009-07-12 19:56
As stated using the horizontal menu and wide buttons gives a crash to desktop when trying to enter the programs menu.
As soon as I go back to standard buttons and horizontal menu everything is fine.
- ronie - 2009-07-12 21:09
thanx for the report.
could you please try this:
1) select horizontal home menu
2) enable debug log (Settings > System > Hardware > Enable debug logging)
3) quit xbmc
4) start xbmc
5) enter the programs menu
if it still crashes please post your debug log to pastebin.com and post a link here.

could you replace MyPrograms.xml (in the 720p folder) with this one: MyPrograms.xml
restart xbmc and please let me know if it fixes the crash.
- Kryspy - 2009-07-13 02:04
Still crashes the same.
- ronie - 2009-07-13 02:17
pfff....suddenly i remember, it happened to me too once.
i rember fixing it for the normal menu and the horizontal menu,
but forgot to do it for the horizontal wide buttons menu.
this should fix it: Home.xml
...i hope ;-)
