    I'm not sure. I entered via the XFactor Menu Editor a menu option called 'INFO' which will contain weather, scores, etc. I didn't edit any xml files manually. Other than copying images into the animations folder I've changed nothing outside of what's being done with the xfactor menu editor.



    I think I will just start over. Thanks for all your help.

    Just remember to do the following after each edit in the menu editor:
    1. Generate
    2. Save (this should always ensure that your xfactor.xml file contains your latest settings)

    I seem to have found the problem. When I entered the location of the backdrops I was entering the full path - for example: C:/Program Files/etc/etc as opposed to movies/default.jpg. When I enter the full path I get nothing, when I enter (I figured the setup is written to recognize the animations folder as the root) just the file name and/or source folder + filename then it works perfectly.

    If this was covered previously I apologize for missing it.
