Hi there!

I already asked elsewhere in this forum, but they told me to ask here:

I have a minor problem dealing with XBMC´s features.
I cant get the wide option for icons working except for the
Videos folder. For example when i switch to music only
small icons / big icons, but no wide or wide2. Hope someone
can help on this.

Thanks for your time,
Bye

probably because wide icons aren't an option for music, because nobody really does that....I think most people's music libraries are a bit too big to find and add wide icons for every single artist and album they have, and I've never even seen wide icons for music, so you'd probably have to make them all yourself. I think you can only do it for videos and apps/games/emulators right now

timdog is right... Wide Icons in Music is just silly because of the amount of Music Albums out there (Compared to only 1,000 Xbox Games and 300~+ TV Shows)... But hey, if you want to go through the effort and create Wide Icons for your albums, not a problem, this is how:

You'd have to edit the views in MyMusic.xml

Just go to MyVideos.xml and look for the Wide Icon view and thats the control your looking for biggrin.gif

Good luck

I dont want to use a wide icon for every album but i want to use this:
IPB Image
And this:
IPB Image

But thats not possible, because i cant chose "wide" as list method.... its only working in "Videos"

By the way, i dont have a "MyMusic.xml" and there is not "MyVideos.xml" either sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif
I only have "MyMusicNav.xml", but i cant find the correct point to insert the wide view.

Hope someone can help!!!

I'm not sure exactly what file to edit (I haven't edited xml files for a while since Wide Icons were implemented into programs/videos)...

But here are some guesses

Maybe its in the CommonViewTypes.xml?

In that screenshot above with the Wide Icons for the whole Programs section, that is possible now. Because its in MyPrograms, which has Wide Icons implemented, if you need to find out how to implement them, check the tutorial on it here http://www.xboxmedia...XBMC_Wide_Icons

Hope this helps... Good luck with the Music implementation

Hmm, i changed the "myMusicNav.xml" but with no effect.....
It still looks like this: IPB Image

Same for Games.... I would love to use alle the cool WideIcons for the Games section.

I edited this:

<include>OldCommonListView</include>
<include>NewMusicListView</include>
<include>CommonThumbnailPanel</include>
<include>CommonBigThumbnailPanel</include>
<include>WideIcon_Small</include>
<include>WideIcon_Big</include>

<include>MusicViewCommons_BigList</include>
<include>AllViewCommonPageControls</include>
<include>MediaCommonsKeymaps</include>
<include>MediaCommonsBlades</include>

but no effect!
