i've noticed a better way for visualisation visibility:
use this property, it's set to true when active:

Whaaaaaaa?? That's a pretty cool sounding new function. I love it. Thanks ppic for making that. And Sharpe for adding it so quickly. That makes for a nice new addition to Back Row. Such a nice new touch.

It's great isn't it? This is the one thing I missed from Plex when I switched back to XBMC - many thanks ppic.
Also another very quick update thanks to a bit of help from mcborzu and ronie I've altered how the skin uses the favourites script so that playlists can be added as home shortcuts that you can open up and view rather than it playing them automatically.

In the last pushed update the check mark on watched items in fan art view is gone. However the check mark still works on individual items such as episodes.

Hello - thanks for the info
Just to narrow this down - you say it's fine for episodes - where doesn't it show you for you? At TV show level it's not there as I use the Unwatched label in the description to show if there are any not watched episodes. Is it working for Movies and TV Seasons for you?

I do not have anything under movies so I can not say anything about that. As for seasons all of my content is Anime and thus there is only 1 season for everything.
It does show in the description as 0 unwatched.
Yea before it would say in the description 0 unwatched but also have a check on the cover, this made panning very convenient.
Personally I would rather you make it so the check is there all the time verses only when the images is selected like before assuming you are going to bring it back. You could always make an option for the check if people do not like having it on the series. It is just that while we can just filter by watched and unwatched it is nice to be able to scroll though and see everything at once and also if it has been watched without needing to move your eyes up to the description. (more important for large screens vs small ones)
From your response it appears it is not a glitch but you just removed that feature and so I would like to ask that the feature be re-added with some changes. Instead of just having a check or no check or no check it would be better to have 3 levels instead of 2:
Checked: If everything has been watched
Dashed: If not all of it was been watched (great for identifying series that your still finishing)
Nothing: If you have not watched any of this item.
Doing this will make browsing though the current interface much easier. If people do not want these options there could just be a setting to disable them.

Cool - okay I've not consciously removed any watched overlays - but perhaps it's something that came about when I re-did all the view ids? Something that was possibly in the TV poster views.
Just to confirm - you're talking about TV show level, which view in particular is it and are you using banners or posters for tv shows?
Let me know and I'll see what I can do - Thanks
#Edit - I've fixed a watched overlay visibility condition for TV show level (posters option) in the Fanart view that may have been what you were talking about.
