tazman Wrote:Hi Reaven, i would like to know if there is a howto for your wonderfull mod because in the rar link you provide there is no such info ?? Actually i can't manage it to work. Sorry for my bad english. Taz
inside the rar exactly inside the \media\backdrops\artist_fanart\ folder is a readme and inside \media\backdrops\artist_fanart\cd\
there are the only 2 places you need to put/create things the rest is merge/replace.
inside the \media\backdrops\artist_fanart\<artist name folder>
you create a folder per artist with the name of the artist as the folder name, inside you drop all the images you have of the artist.
inside \media\backdrops\artist_fanart\cd\ you drop all your cdArts
and that info is inside the rar, you wont see anything if you dont drop any image in those folder (the only thing you are suppose to see without images is the default cdArt a blank disc )

I have a few CD arts
how does one submit them to the site?
- ppic - 2009-10-25 14:34
just create an account on xbmc stuff, and then u can upload them

I had already created an account but couldn't find anything on the site that allowed me to upload them.
I just tried to log in again today, but am having trouble with my login.
EDIT: Created a new login and had another look around the site. Still can't find it. Some pages aren't displaying correctly here, so I might try again later from home. Or maybe I'm just blind and can't see it.

when you're logged, you should see "upload" under tvshow info.

Go to Cdarts, click the letter of the band you are wanting to add cdarts for, from there you can add new cdarts.
If the band doesn't exist yet, you can create that also.

ho yes, that was for cd art, sorry !

Ah got it all worked out now after a bit of hunting.
I've managed to upload a few CDArts.
I had to create a "creator" account before that option turned up. And the link to do that is under your "profile" which is under "home".

First of all; nice mod man!! This is so cool!!
Second my fan art is not working I dunno why all I get is a black screen, cdArt and album are appearing fine but my fanArt is not working and I have the folder with the name of the artist like it should be. Does it has to do with the resolution I'm on 1920 x 1200 but yea it's not working pretty frustrating .
By the way how does you guys make the cdArt from scratch, you guys scan the cd as an image and then do the cutting?
I'm using Linux and ill be using the gimp to do all this i saw one of the posts on how to cut it. Hope somebody can help me out. Thanks
