This is a new panel viewtype for tv show level and episode level:
DOWNLOAD the modified .xml's and install in your Xperience/720 folder

See in action - Youtube Link *notice it automatically adjusts to whether you have a logo or not.

I really like the logo concept and would like to see it catch on, luckily YRUSirius created the good amount of the Xperience work mostly just a 30 minute mod from there...

So I suppose I could use the series fanart as the series panel, like in your first screenshot, eh? Might look alright, you think? (size?)

I was already thinking about combining that with the posterview for a DVD like selection for the seasons. But might just use this perhaps instead.

I'm not sure if i've done anything wrong, but I cannot get the logos to display. I have placed all of the files in their root folders as logo.png in each folder on my server, when I use the mod the viewtypes change but no logos.

1. So your folder structure looks like this?

2. And you also grabbed the modified Xperience .xml's - HERE

3. It's only for that view, called Panels, not any other regular Xperience views...

Yep, followed your instructions and added the XML's it displays the fanart across the panels but it treats all the tv shows as items with no logo. Does it have anything to do with the fact that my files are on a network server and not on the local machine?

Well I figured out why it screwed up file-mode:

If you don't want to redownload just delete bolded line, line 54 from Includes_Views.xml
Quote:<include name="Other-Views">
<include>Viewtype-File Mode</include>
<include>Viewtype-Walls</include>
<include>Viewtype-Program Panels</include>
</include>

I'll 2x check logo code, now...You guys using regular Xpirence Beta 2 not Black's mod?

What system and build?
Im W7 and 28202 though it's the same code as extrathumbs so if extrathumbs show these logos should also?

I just 2x checked everything, redownloaded a fresh copy of Xperience Bravo and reapplied the mod. Everything worked for me...

I'm using:
W7
28202
Xpirence Bravo, not Black's mod

What you guys using? and if you want paste a debug log...
