[MOD] cdArt (MusicVisualisation) - D0nR0s4 - 2010-01-31 07:37
Ok, I really like the idea of the rotating cd of the cdart mod for aeon, so I thought I should mod this for alaska (my fav. skin btw). You have to replace a few files, so you should back them up first but you should be able to switch by the setting toggle.To install cdarts copy them into the album folder and to install cleararts into the tvshow folder.
I hope you like it, feedback is appreciated and credit for the idea goes to reaven and of course thanks to hitcher for his great skin.
New link, old one broke after forum was down:

so you port my Aeon cdArt mod to Alaska, or plan to ?

Yeah, I changed a bit stuff but mainly it's still pretty much yours

Thanks for your work. I wanted this (as i want the clear art too )
I don`t know if i`ve messed my the skin but i seems that the visualization doesn`t work... have i done something wrong or that`s how it`s supposed to work ?

That's how its supposed to be, but I'll change it tomorrow(or better today) with a toggle in settings.

Nice work, included your tape reel, for update see first post.

played with the musicvisualization.xml
now the tapes (or cd whatever, but it looks so much more awesome with my tape graphic :rolleyes rotating speed correspondents to the speed your forwarding or rewindig with.
e.g with FF2x its faster, and gets faster with every step, 4x, 8x.....
and with RW its the same but the tape rotates backwards.
MusicVisualization.xml download here: http://www.mediafire.com/?ny5deyt45l1
btw: these two "mods" (graphics+new .xml) are the first time i added something to xbmc myself. yehaaw :-D

Same over here mate xD this is the fist time I played with the xmls at all, oh and I implemented the different rotating speeds to the uploaded version, looks great your right.

after updating the with the new version it doesnt work anymore at all!
now Cover, no cdart now fanart no nothing!!
did some trial&error, and im pretty certain its the customsetting.xml.
for now i stick to the version before customsettings.xml was added + my mods, though i'm sure its fixed by tommorow ;-)

Instead of "Current, Prev and Next Tracks" can I request Artist, Album and Title Instead?
I tried combining this with reaven's static info mod to no avail.
