I've done a Blue3wide skin that is included in the latest version. It has some flaws, so if anyone wants to improve it feel free to post it here.

    Well, I've not read all about this new version (3.0) but as far as I know a few new things have been added and there's an id-change. Will the new version work with the old skin file for Aeon? Is there just the id that I need to change or are there more cool things?

    If not, then I'm requesting a new xml for Aeon. I will not give that high WAF skin yet :)

    Basically two things are new: the id have changed and I've added a button. That means that you can use the old skin if you change the id, but you won't get access to the sorting options that are made available from the new button.

    Could you please make a sticky with everything that the skin files can lift from the myemulators database file? And of course most importantly, keep it updated if you change anything?

    Good idea. I'm on vacation, but please remind me again if I haven't updated this post in two weeks time :)

    I'm back again using MediaPortal and I still would like meta data like genre (and other stuff from MyEmulators database, too) to be displayed inside my games list. How can I do that? Does anybody have a skin / skinfile where something similar is implemented?
    In this thread https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/my-emulators-247/genre-display-xface-53812/ I've asked this already but couldn't get it to work as described.

    Also I would like to sort by genre. Possible? I was longtime absent from MediaPortal so I'm a total newb again.

    That is a good idea and would certainly help, though again, I would have no idea how to implement it. Label with ID didn't work, for whatever reason.

    I think you should update your 1st post and add:

    ID=46 - Selected game cover art
    #selecteditem - Selected game title

    Maybe they're obvious for a experienced skinner, but i remember i had to figure them out myself the hard way a while back when i was working on a StremdMP skin for this plug-in. There's also a lot of things i never found out, and gave up on :p

    Hi
    First, a big thanks for Chreekar !
    It's my cocktail of hulkhaugen's and thagerty's ideas for StreamedMP (My Emulators 3.2) :D
    Backgrounds have to be saved into folder \ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\thumbs\myEmulators\screenshots in .jpg format. Since Rev. 750 also in StreamedMP , The StreamedMP installer automatically change the path of thumb folder in ID 1001 on the right one





    Code:
    <control>
                         <description>screenshot background</description>
                         <type>image</type>
                         <id>1001</id>
                         <posX>0</posX>
                         <posY>0</posY>
                         <width>1280</width>
                         <height>720</height>
                         <!--Updated by setup (Ensure ID is unique)-->
                         <texture>C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\thumbs\myEmulators\screenshots\#selecteditem.jpg</texture>
                         <keepaspectratio>yes</keepaspectratio>
                         <zoom>yes</zoom>
                         <visible>yes</visible>
                  </control>
    I notice also some visibility problems with ID 40-45 in thumbs and filmstrip view .

    Thanks Losttown

    Wow, nice work losttown :) Does it pick fanart based on rom title, or is it just a "coincidence". If so, is it possible to alter it to use fanart based on emulator title?

    EDIT: I guess not, afaik there is no such thing as #selectedemulator or similar feature in this plugin. Now, back to work Chreekar :p
