Loving the Neon skin :

Where would I put movie genre icons and fanart in the skin folder?

Thanks

The genre icons should be there... The folder structure for genre stuff is:

skin.neon/media/extras/genrefanart
skin.neon/media/extras/moviegenres
skin.neon/media/extras/musicgenres
skin.neon/media/extras/Studios

Thanks,

Let's say you wanted to use your own custom genre icons? Is there a way to get them to show?

I believe if you place them in the folder mentioned they will take precedence over those included by default.

Hi !

first of all, thank you for this skin: it's marvelous !

I put my custom icons in the "skins.neon/media/extras/moviegenres" folder and named them as the genre name they have to replace...

Neon loads the right icons for my "translated-into-italian" genres ("Commedia" in place of "Comedy", for example), but it won't replace it's stock icons for "english-named" ones...

in other words: custom icons won't take precedence over embedded ones...

Is there a solution ?

P.S. It's not a caching problem... Neon acts the same even if you delete the XBMC cached thumbs

Sounds like you'll have to use the version from Git that doesn't get compiled into an xbt file and then replace the images. http://github.com/stoli

Thank you very much...

I'm not using the XBMC Nightly Builds, just the 10.1 stable relase... can I still use a Neon developing package ?

No, the skin has too many changes specific to Eden to use on Dharma. Take the jump to the nightlies! Smile

How do i differentiate between icons and backdrops though?

Soory, It's been a while i know, might not even be relevant anymore.
