What I did was to pair the movie stills (facts, quotes, whatever) as a Q and an A, like so...
Q3 (a movie fact)
Q3A (a movie still)
The only bummer is that you're not getting a true random assortment; the non-trivia slides always come in pairs.
Your slide looks great, by the way.

Thanks! i was worried that would happen, I don't actually have my slides ready to go just started working on them this evening, so i couldn't test anything yet lol.
Maybe going forward with new versions something for quotes/facts etc could be worked into the script? (I am NOT a coder so I have no idea if i just asked the equivalent of having you digitize mars and put it on a 5 1/2in floppy!!)

Does anyone know of a good site to download trivia slides? I've found a few on line but would like a bunch more without spending hours creating my own.
We could make a thread for custom slides, so that we could share our hard earned work!

There was also an earlier post in this thread by someone working on their own slides.

can some one help me to get this to work. I copied all of my slides off the CD I bought into the directory I wanted. Do I have to take all the images out of the containing folders and place them in the root of the slides folder?
Also I read that you cant get them to show randomly? Is this right? Seems silly to watch the same trivia every time.

frankly mccorkled i'm getting tired of you posting. start at the first page and start reading!
no where did i say slides don't play random. everythings been explained more than once in some cases.

I saw those but didn't want to pay for it. And aren't they all Coca-Cola related? I would prefer not having that. I was able to link my apple trailers folder and HTE folders. Everything works great. While in apple trailers, if I want to save one, I just change the viewing type from "streaming" to "download and save" I can now choose which trailers HTE will display for my kids. Also, I found on youtube a bunch of pre-show clips. I liked the AMC ones so now it has their coming attractions, feature presentation, and most of all, the cell phone interruption trailer spoofs! Love it!
I'm working on a couple of photoshop templates to make my own trivia slides. will share when I'm done.

whats your problem with me? always with the snide sarcastic remarks.
I got my slides ready but before renaming over 1300 slide I would like to be sure Im doing it right.
I started with this...
so far so good right?
but in editing the xml file is where I get lost. Also should I rename my files...

Just read your original unedited post mccorkled. congratulations you've just closed this thread. i won't post the dribble here, but i hope others understand i'm sick of assholes signing up, not reading and asking the same questions over and over and then making snide inaccurate remarks.
i know you don't read as you posted about getting weather fanart to work in confluence, when confluence has a sticky on the subject.
i will reopen, when/if i make any updates to the script.
- Nuka1195 - 2009-12-05 07:19
reopened as mccorkled has his own thread.
i ask all people especially new people to thouroghly read the first post and better the whole thread as most questions have been answered.
i'm gaining some strangth so i am slowly going to add these features/changes.
please feel free to suggest.
1. 5 minute option to trivia.
2. check m3u playlist support (may be xbmc issue with queuing a playlist)
3. run script before videos start (homeseer)
4. random trivia, mix in single slides (you MUST still keep your different slide types in separate folders) i have an idea and if it works it shouldn't be difficult.
