Hi Billy,

One feature that is being implemented in alot of new skins (besides TV show logos) is the ability to scroll through extra fanart images stored with the movie/tv show.

Basically how it works is that the skin will look for a folder called 'extrathumbs' in the root directory of either the movie or TV show, and then have each jpg named as thumb1.jpg, thumb2.jpg, etc.

Here is a sample directory tree:

moviefolder
- movie.avi
- movie.tbn
- fanart.jpg
- extratfanart (folder)
- fanart1.jpg
- fanart2.jpg



tvshowfolder
- folder.jpg
- fanart.jpg
- clearart.png
- logo.png
- extrafanart (Folder)
- fanart1.jpg
- fanart2.jpg
- season 1 (folder)
- season 2 (folder)

i think that this addition, plus the addition of a logo download browser from the below site would make MC perfect

Looks interesting. What are the images in the extrafanart folder? Are they backdrops, or stills from the movie/TV show?

Also: What are fanart1.jpg and fanart2.jpg used for?

Hmm, well first, fanart1 and fanart2 were supposed to be inside the extrafanart folder, but I guess I didn't make that very clear.

I guess you could have the images inside the extra fanart folder be either other fanart images, or screencaps from whatever movie/tv show you are going to watch.

Thanks very much for explaining. Do you know which skins support extrafanart at the moment?

as far as I know just Night and a modded confluence.

There is a new skin called Cirrus which is still in development which I am trying to get the author to add support.
