Hi Everyone,

I've been an XBMC user for nearly as long as XBMC has existed (XBOX1) but I'm a C#.NET/Java developer and I have avoided extensions/addons/plugins mostly because I'm not the world's biggest Python fan.

Anyways, many thanks to developer iZE for his great GameTrailers.com script. As good as it is, I really wanted a way to jump directly to my favorite GT shows and specials so I created a script to fetch my personal favorite programs.

Wow, thanks soooo muchBig Grin I was so saddened by the untimely demise of Dan Dare's add-onSad If this one works then I am indeed in your debt.

One feature request though, would it be possible to add GTtv to this as well?

It seems to work really well at the moment; I've been using it (in testing) for a few weeks now. I had some issues spoofing the iTunes headers but once I got that correct everything seems to run smoothly.

Yea, I'm looking into that as well as GT Retrospectives, ScrewAttack, and Countdowns specials. For the initial release I just wanted to be able to scrape the things I follow religiously (GT Reviews and the Bonus Round). Now that I know how it all works I can dig into some more meaty extensions.

Create a folder in: %APPDATA%\XBMC\addons called plugin.video.gametrailers.exclusives and unzip the files into it.

Cheers!

--EDIT--

I've updated the v1.0.1 version to include the root folder so it should install OK now.

Try renaming Default.py to default.py (with the lowercase d). Worked for me.

Wonderful addon!

Maybe I'm hogging everyone's bandwidth Wink

I seriously must have watched 4 hours of GT non-stop last night! Sorry you're having trouble zidewinder. Working great over here.

Hi there,
I know you said to download it from the original repo, is that the standard XBMC one? I don't seem to be able to find it in there. Or is it because I have Eden installed I can't find it? TIA

Really happy to see GameTrailers usable again on xbmc. Been without it for a while... used to use it daily... reverted to using the html site but it's so flash-heavy it eats my cpu for breakfast. Going to give this a try now, thanks!
