I think you can find all the images in the media folder of the Github Repository here: https://github.com/stoli/Metropolis

Hi
And thank you for this awesome skin.

I have a problem with movie covers though: since i use confluence skin (on openelec and raspberrypi) the cover scratched from imdb are displayed fine, but when i turn to metropolis instead of the cover i get a screenshot of the movie.

Tryed with all views.
Anyway to fix this?

Thank you for helping me out

@paso75, what version of XBMC and Metropolis are you using? This issue was sorted out in the last release; however, some users reported having to re-scrape the problematic entries.

Hi jingai and thank you for replying.
I have the latest xbmc version 12.2 openelec with the latest metropolis skin.
I'm rescraping all files too.

Tryed to edit the db file (in table art i query to change all mediatype to "poster") but it fixed for some but not for all.

I'm not really sure then. Have you tried running Artwork Downloader?

Sorry maybe its a silly question, can i work on pc xbmc files and then copy them to userdata on raspberrypi?
Its much much faster...

There's a shortcut to get what Metropolis needs via Settings->Metropolis->Scripts/Extras->Download Extra TV Show Artwork.

Possibly, if the source paths are all the same.. but I haven't tried it personally.

Hey guys, new to XBMC and loving it - and loving Metropolis skin.

Question - I have a ton of MMA videos that are scrapped nice using the sherdog scraper, but they show up as movies. Is there a way to give them their own menu item, and NOT show up as a movie? They are really sports PPV events.

Thanks guys!!

BigOldBoy, you could put them into a Playlist and add it to Favourites, which would allow you to add it as a custom submenu item. They would still show in the main Movies library, but at least you'd have a way of looking at only the MMA videos.
