I don't seem to be able to find a way to see the movie certification (age rating) when viewing a film in Moving Pictures.

When looking at the screenshots for skins for download, it seems to be available for the Mustayaluca skin (see last screenshot), but not any others. Have I missed something, or is there anything I can do to get the certificate rating to show on other skins?

Thanks!

    I'm using Titan (since I went to 1.4), and was using BlueWide and haven't seen it in either. Will have another look later to see if I am just blind ;)

    Thanks for the quick replies, looking forward to checking when I get home!

    It could also be a matter of missing images (I had to add aspectratio\fullscreen.png, logos\audio\7.1.png + ac3.png + dtshd.png + mono.png a long time ago).

    MovPic obtains the info during import and the skin media folder for logos has to match that verbatum (with extension .PNG added by skin).

    Lot of times the folder with images already contains one that you need, but it has a different name, so you have to copy+rename.

    To find out what 'image filenames' you need, open MovPic configuration (use direct shortcut) -> "Movie Manager" tab -> select a movie -> look for "Certification" row. If your movie shows "R" then you need to have a corresponding:

    "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\<SKIN NAME>\Media\certification\R.png"​

    The same goes for mediainfo logos on resolution, codec, etc. Switch from "Movie Details" to "File Details" in the drop down box.

    And then look for "Video Codec", "Audio Codec", "Audio Channels", "Video Aspect Ratio", etc. This also has to match the filenames as per the following example:

    "Video Aspect Ratio" = 'Fullscreen' = "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\<SKIN NAME>\Media\Logos\aspectratio\Fullscreen.png"​

    I like the MPAA certifications myself, so I've modified the Titan skin to show them, as per:

    3.MovingPictures.MPAA.ratings.and.CC.icon.png

    Hope that explains it.

    That's great info. First up it turns out I am blind, they do exist in Titan as default. I was just looking in the wrong place (expecting to see it as a line with Date, Runtime, etc as shown above).

    Secondly, that's great info on the modding. I quite like the look of the MPAA wide logo, but when time allows will be trying to convert to the UK ratings so will also be looking to use the BBFC versions. Lots to play with there :)

    Why are they not showing to begin with, can you please tell me all the certifications so I can make sure they are included in the titan skin by default.

    Hi Kiwi,
    They are showing, the films I checked last night were PG-13 and R, indeed there they were as described. I think my issue in not seeing them was:

    a) Expecting to see them in a different area of the screen (i.e. alongside Runtime/Genre/Director/Etc), in my mind I expected the data in that group
    b) The logos did not look like 'official' logos (as per the MPAA one above), and hence did not register with me

    It looks to me now that I am looking in the right place that it all appears fine, however I will report back if any of the UK ratings are missing when I test.

    It appears the issue is with my eyes/brain, not the skin :oops:

    I've added support for BBFC and a few other English-language rating systems to the IMDb+ scraper enhancement for MovPic. Have a post as well showing all the rating images @ https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/skins-information-for-skin-developers.103590/

    PS: I got the MPAA images originally from StreamedMP skin, but then did end up modifying them a bit. You are welcome to try out my fling at Titan skin editing, 7-zip file contains all you need at: http://blixy.net/mp/Titan+/ and the other screenshots show you all the modifications I've made. Was not able to make all the modifications to the Titan Extended theme, so it is a little hacked mess. Not sure it is still valid for the latest update to Titan Extended, but it does still work for me.
