How Do I Make Custom Thumbnails Display On Xbmc?
Posted 27 July 2011 - 11:35 AM
I'm trying to place thumbnails in picture folders "within" picture folders. I know how to create folders within the root of my pix folder tree but for some reason when I try and create them from inside the folders subfolder it just generates 4 random thumbnails. For instance, say I wanted to create an SNK vs. Capcom gallery based on the artists name. I make two folders, one containing all of Falcoon's art the other has Nona with the artwork stored in various sub locations based on games or CG galleries (keep things more organized, I want to avoid throwing them together in the same folder). Say I start with Falcoon, the first picture I want to introduce the folder to is Mai Shiranui vs. Chun-Li. All I have to do is press the white button and highlight the option "Choose a Thumbnail" and I'll grab it from any place in the hard drive and plaster it.
However, if I try to do this from one of the initial folders subs. All the menu shows is "Generate Thumb". The folder interior displays nothing but 4 random thumbs when I want it to show a picture I personally picked out. According to wiki placing a folder in there that reads folder.jpg is supposed to fix this problem. They also said it's possible to place a tbn of the folder name within the folder or at the same level of the folder tree. I tried them both nothing works. I even tried replacing the tbn files in userdata which actuallly shows those folders cursed by multiple thumbs and it was still a no go.
Is there an option I must tinker with in the settings? I've surfed through the set-up but didn't find anything. Where did I go wrong?

in my experience naming a picture "cover.jpg" works as well. at least it does for my music library.
Awesome! Will keep that in mind when I get around to My Music.
