Cant make this to work *sigh*. Either fanart slide or cd art doesnt show up.
Here i my set up:
aeon auriga/media/backdrops/artist_fanart/whitesnake/restless heart.jpg (cdart) and 2 whitesnake.jpg (fanart)
First I named folder & jpgs after album name in Library mode but with no luck and after that changed whitesnake (foldername) to WHITESNAKE,Whitesnake,whitesnake same tried the same with restless Heart.
What do I do wrong?
I have the latest Auriga and XBMC win32...

first the cd art need to be .png with no background that means restless heart.png after you edit it the art.
structure would be like
files inside <artist/band name folder>
fanart images whatever name/whatever extension(.jpg, .jpeg, .png, ......)

Which menu? The one popping up when pressing "S" like in this screenshot?
As you can see in the background of the screenshot music is playing. I have also activated the "Home Visualizer" option in the menu but nothing happens. Do I need another mod to get this working?

you can do 3 things
1. Edit the code to only display one static fanart and loose the slideshow
2. make another folder for the cdArt and put all the cdArts there but if you have one or more albums named the same you will have problems
3. make a subfolder inside the artist/band folder and put the cdArt there this is the code to edit
