Question  URL Picture in Visualization?
Post: #1
I want my Xbox 360 GamerCard to be displayed on my visualization screen. So I need to load an .png image from a URL. Is this possible within a visualization? I only started modding visualizations yesterday and so far to add images I have used <texture>Localfileaddress</texture>.

How can i display that image in a visualization? http://card.mygamercard.net/nxe/DannyBres.png

Does anyone know how to do this? or on any work arounds?!

Thanks

if it is, you probably need background="true"

For python coding questions first see http://mirrors.xbmc.org/docs/python-docs/

sorry what?

I do not understand.

Oo

EDIT: Just read the guide and i see what background means.....

I was to know if it is possible to say do something like

Quote:<texture>http://www.somewhere.com/my.png</texture>

and load that image

How come this is not in the manual?

Because you haven't added it?

And no, there's no way to request a refresh, other than altering it via a skin variable or something (you'll need to use a different URL)
