not sure if it's the correct way since i don't use games..but it seems to work.
Wow, that was a quick turnaround, thanks Ronie. I'll give it a try and see how it works! I spent ages collecting fanart for each game so I'm looking forward to seeing it in action. Thanks again.
Hmm... just tried it out and I'm not sure it's working the way I was expecting. But this would be because I don't think I explained it very well.
For movies there is an extra fanart folder where each movie is (if the user elects to have one) and that's where the 'use extra fanart' is taking it from, right? (I think this is how it works, correct me if I'm wrong as I don't actually use the function for film)
Within the Advanced Launcher, each 'Launcher' can be edited with an Extra Fanart directory. When activating the 'Enable Extra Fanart' from within Transparency! Settings, would it be possible for it to be 'activating' the Launchers to go to that folder for extra fanart, similar to how it is 'activating' to check for that ExtraFanart directory for movies?
To try and help explain, here's a thread in which Angelscry explains:

I don't know if what I'm saying makes any sense so feel free to tell me I'm crazy if it doesn't. I really appreciate your efforts no matter the outcome.
EDIT: Nevermind, I figured it out now. Thanks Ronie!
For those that are wondering: The directory you set for where the Extra Fanart will be will have to contain folders with the exact same titles of the games. Within these folders you will need an 'extrafanart' folder in which all images can be kept.
So as an example, let's say the Extra Fanart Path in the Settings of the skin is set to C:\
if the Launcher is titled 'Super's Game', the folder structure would be like so:
(it seems the name of the images doesn't matter, so it does not need to be titled Folder.jpg or fanart.jpg)
Be aware though that if you have a game that has a : in the title, then it will have to be renamed to something that the Windows explorer structure allows. Example:
Launcher is for game titled "Super's Game: The Revenge".
Edit Launcher and modify title of game to something like "Super's Game The Revenge"
c:\Super's Game The Revenge\extrafanart\img1.jpg
c:\Super's Game The Revenge\extrafanart\img2.jpg
and so on.
Again, thanks for your help with this Ronie
One last request Ronie - at the moment I have the extrafanart directory address (so "C:\Super's Game\Extrafanart/") appearing in the lower left hand corner of the screen when I'm going through my games - is this happening to you too or am I isolated with this issue?
