    Great work guys. Still requires the following (I think)......

    1. Option to use own folder.jpg and backdrop.jpg if theses files are present within the movie folder. If not, use downloaded graphics.
    2. Automatic sorting and grouping (such as IMDB+).

    Other than that, great as far as I can see.

    Thanks @Iceman89610!
    1. You can use folder.jpg - see Picture Handling in AMCU settings, or you can use it with NFO grabber (selectable in Setup Wizard now) I will try to make that a bit more 'obvious' in the wiki ;)
    2. You can also use fanart in your movie folder using NFO grabber script - see Fanart Handling in AMCU settings - especially 'use Script for Fanart' (e.g. NFO grabber) - although I would appreciate if you would add that to the tracker because imo it is not exactly what you want yet. Also, I think users name fanart in their movie folder in many different ways, so that has to be considered as well.
    3. Automatic sorting and grouping - You can also do this in several ways - you don't need an add on - see Box Sets, Series, Groups - best of all in My Films you can even create or change Groups in the GUI!
    If those features don't meet your needs, please provide a bit more detail what you wish to achieve and we'll see what can be done. Thanks!

    Nice job (y)

    From a quick look, it seems that you've eliminated those nasty double negatives and the Wiki's a lot clearer about the Import Modes now. :)

    Thanks doveman - an early Christmas present for you :p Guzzi and I spent the last two days working it out to squeeze it in 6.0.1 final! As you will see in the Issue Tracker, we still want to move the 'Import Behaviour in My Films' setting to My Films setup (where it really belongs!), and add the option in GUI > Global settings as well, but that was a bit more risky change :eek: and we did not want to delay release. So we'll try to do that for 6.0.2 or 6.1.

    The worst part was finding and editing 20+ pages in wiki where it was mentioned :cry:

    Well I do appreciate my early Christmas present from Guzzi and yourself. No longer will I go half-mad trying to work out what the settings do :p

    I dare say you need a well-deserved lie-down after all that though :sleep:

    Definitely the right call to not try and fix everything at once though. Always best to leave major/risky changes until everything's settled down a bit and Christmas isn't rapidly approaching as no-one wants to be faced with loads of "help!" messages if something doesn't work as it should at that time of year.

    Hell, I was talking about my brother's PC I was building for him last Christmas and I still haven't got it done :oops: I nearly managed it for his birthday in September until the motherboard died on me and I lost the will to live :cry: but I'm sure I'll get it done one day, hopefully before his clapped out P3 completely dies on him!

    Thanks doveman - yes we want to focus on solving any issues that arise in My Films 6 over the next month or so, especially as users 'grow into' using all the new features. I think we caught most of them during the beta and all the testing our testers did! But you know how it is ;) - hard to catch every possible issue especially when My Films supports so many different use cases and setups (just like MP does!)

    Of course there may also be changes with MP 1.3.0 beta soon to be released - at least skin changes to support the new Default skin and the great new skin features beta supports. And everyone will be busy playing with beta anyways. ;)

    I think you should wait till your brother's P3 craps out - I don't think it even meets the hardware requirements for MP! :p Then you can tell him it was a planned strategy, not your tardiness ;) Better yet, buy him something for Christmas (and save yourself the time) - the money will be worth it! LOL

    Do you think that the "enable trakt" checkbox is necessary? It´s redundant, because in the trakt config there is already a checkbox for myfilms.

    Hi, yes, this is needed, because: If users do have multiple configs, they can enable and disable the trakt support PER config.
    Example:
    config A: movies (trakt enabled)
    config B: documentation (trakt disabled)
    config C: private movies (trakt disabled)
    For single config users, it is of course a "redundant" setting, yes...
