I installed MP 1.8, aMPed and MyFilms on a new machine. I use Spanish as MP language and there has always been a small translation issue in the context menu for movie titles: the option "Play random movie" is still in English. I'm obsessive enough to want it in Spanish like the other ones and I remember in the previous install (6 years ago or so) I was able to find the right xml file and the right spot in it to translate that option myself. I guess I'm getting older, because I can't find that xml file any more. Any hint would be much appreciated.

    there has always been a small translation issue in the context menu for movie titles: the option "Play random movie" is still in English.
    Translateable language strings are found in the "Language" folder in the "MediaPortal" folder. There is a different language file for each of the supported languages. However, I just scanned the one for English, and the string "Play random movie" does not occur there, or in the Spanish language file.

    As it happens, I have the source files for the Amped skin on my system, and scanning those reveals that the file "mvCentral.xml" has this line:

    <label>#mvCentral.Translation.PlayAllRandom.Label</label>​

    So it looks as though that string is specific to the Movies plugin, and is therefore defined in one of the definition files for the Movies plugin. I don't have those on my system, so I cannot tell you where to look. If you cannot find where that skin variable is defined, you can change the <label> tag in "mvCentral.xml" so that it specifies the string that you want in Spanish (i.e. don't use the skin variable).

    The string I was looking for is located in ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\language\MyFilms\strings_es
    Thank you CyberSimian for the hint.

    Then you didn’t use Nereus Skin in MP2. tMM does a great job in combination with MP2 it’s the best, if you ask me.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply. My point is that after the new install ALL movies show up as watched. Even the 20-25 movies I haven't watched yet. This happens regardless of the watched/unwatched status set on the movie catalog (xml). So I guess it has nothing to do with the catalog itself but with the MyFilms plugin.
