so i've given up my mod as i change the code so much and it got to hard to implement mcborzu's changes. and it didn't help much that i didn't understood what i was doing Big Grin

so my new tactics is to just do small changes to the code to make it work for how i like it. gonna share my code here in case there are one or two here that like the way i do stuff. i'm just gonna change code for the exact view i use and will not check other settings within the view. example i use the poster view for movies and only the show fanart setting will be worked on and aligned more or less correctly. Big Grin the dark view would probably still work, but probably not align correctly. also i would mostly just comment out the code not used for easier comparing the code to mcborzu's changes.

gonna try pastebin for the xml files for quicker updates and share images on mediafire.

current views i use is:
movies: poster with show fanart setting
tvhsows: landscape fanart

my vision is showing fanart and displaying flags

resized and moved the poster to show more of the fanart. removed reflections from poster. added imdb rating and genre lable.

!! i've concentrated my changes on the show fanart option of this viewtype so dark view with or without posterplus option is not checked.

pushed in studiosflag under videotypehack setting so viewtypes didn't need to be edited. might cause too many flags to show on some views. Also fixed so u only need to change the flagsize on one place for all the flags, except the flags for ratings which is different size then the rest (only work for my monochrome flags). these are flags with no background so might not work good with nights default views.

download Monochrome flag pack [updated: 2010-10-09]

IncludesCodecFlagging.xml on pastebin [updated: 2010-10-09]
* different icon for hdtv and pdtv\dsr
* imax studio flag showing for imax movies even if made by other studios. both imax and studio flag will show
* added support for switching between gray and color flags. my monochrome flags with no background and mcborzu's colored flags with background. default code for color and my code for monochrome.

Hello, first thank you for the excellent looking flags.

How do I get the proper flags to show up? I am using BDMV format... so Movies/Title/BDMV structure. Is it pulling info from the folder names? .nfo files? My dolby truehd movies are showing the correct flags for example, but DTS HD are not. Thanks again.

it's the same flags from the other mediaprogram just without background. and the hdtv and d-theater flag someone else made and posted here. (i forget names easily). did some changes on the aspect flags to combine square with common aspectratio (4:3 instead of 1,33:1) and the official 1080p and 720p icons. made a 3d and sd flag. think that is all i did extra.

to use my flags u need to use my includescodecflagging cause of my filenames. it pulls info from the file so the path have nothing to do with it. i don't have any sources that are dts-hd so no idea what it outputs. my code looks for dtsma and 6 channels so that might be a problem?

I am using your includescodecflagging file.

So it pulls the information directly from the file, the m2ts file in my example?

An example of this is Avatar; it shows no audio codec (nor Studio) for Avatar.

I am using Total Media Theater 3 to play my movies, so I assume you mean to press "O" as if I was playing the movies straight from XBMC. Sorry.
