I now use this option in the advacedsetting.xml and I must say that it is amasing. Im on a Eee Box1012 so the diferens was lika day and night..
Is there any way of adding this option for all other images like movie-posters, cd-albumcover and all others?

I have read that you can include it by compiling XBMC with a patch. I havent tried it as yet however.

Well I mean the function must be in xbmc today because of the working fanart dds conversion. Is there no easy way of getting a function in there for all images that you tell it in the advancedsetting.xml file or am I wrong? It rely is the best function with a slow computer =)

The advanced setting applies to all images.

^^ Even backdrops used in skins? If it does, this means that as long as a DDS version exists it will load it instead?

Sorry if this has already been answered, but real quick:
The advancedsettings tag works GREAT on my Zotac ION setup, but is there a way to tell XBMC to create the DDS for all the items in the currently displayed library? Like how the codec information is downloaded as long as you leave the library open long enough? From my observations (and if I understand the wiki entry) the DDS is only generated AFTER viewing the image. I assume that means I need to scroll through my entire library slow enough for the DDS file to be generated for each library entry?
Great work, this makes fanart actually usable now!

Ok i have notised that it works for fanart and backdrops but not for cdcovers and movieposters. But if it does that means its all great. I will see if I missed something. Thanks

The attached zipfile in the firstpost is gone. I'd like to try this! (Ati 780G/3200 on WinXP SP3, rev32969) Could you post it again?
BTW will this be used by default with the Dharma release?

Thanks for that - I've read the article and it's not clear (to me anyway) how we can then transition to using the dds files once we've already scanned the library and then added the settings in advancedsetting.xml without carrying out an offline process of converting the file - if at possible.
