I'm trying to add custom boxart to all my homebrew applications but it wont let me, in FSindexer I select add and then it lets me select my graphic but then it does nothing. I've tried it with a game and it work fine but it just wont let me do it with homebrew. I'm trying right now to add a custom graphic to xm360 and I just can't get it to work, any suggestions?

Just try to save the xml file several times in a row, sometimes it works.
Or just edit it, it's quite straightforward. Merge this content with your original content.xml.

CODE
<game type='3'>
    <id></id>
    <title>XM360</title>
    <path>hdd1:\applications\XM360\XM360.xex</path>
    <desc></desc>
    <imgpath>XM360</imgpath>
    <images sscount='1' icon='0' boxart='1' background='0' />
    <mediaid>1074729264</mediaid>
    <manufacturer></manufacturer>
    <disks no='0' count='0' />
    <version>0</version>
    <custom c_type='3' />
    <genres>
        <genre>Homebrew</genre>
    </genres>
</game>


Game type = 3, means that's a Homebrew.
Title, well it's obvious.
Path, check it out since it's gonna be used to load the file.
Desc, whathever you want or leave empty
Imgpath, folder's name.
Images tags are important, 1 = file exist, and 0 = file doesn't exist.
But screenshots are dealt in another way,so if you have 5 screenshots (named ss-1.jpg and so on), just edit it to sscount='5'. If you have 4, sscount='4'
if you have an 'icon.png' in your folder, set icon='0' otherwise to '1'.
The same goes for boxart.jpg and background.jpg

The mediaid is generated by Freestyle, there might be a way to get it but i didn't look after... so just get it from your original content.xml.

Hope it helps. biggrin.gif
