Ah, now I got what u mean... SHEET mode... I guess the template is made for STD mode and can't be used without major modifs as SHEET.
Get ThumbGen!
If you like ThumbGen then buy me a coffee

Hi all...

I have made some variations to the Ultimate Glass series of sheets (originally created by Dribbler1, and later updated by Diviance) to maximise the use of SHEET mode and, as such, are designed for use with SHEET mode only.  I use these sheets with a set of media icons created by A.D. that are included in the pack.
Also, my movies are stored in individual movie folders that all reside in a MOVIES folder.  An example of my folder structure is below:

- MOVIES
--  Avatar
-----  1. Avatar 1080p.jpg
-----  1. Avatar 1080p.mkv
-----  1. Avatar 1080p.mkv.tgmd
-----  1. Avatar 1080p.mkv_sheet.jpg
-----  2. Trailer1 1080p - Avatar.jpg
-----  2. Trailer1 1080p - Avatar.mov
-----  2. Trailer1 1080p - Avatar.mov.tgmd
-----  2. Trailer1 1080p - Avatar.mov_sheet.jpg
-----  3. Trailer2 1080p - Avatar.jpg
-----  3. Trailer2 1080p - Avatar.mov
-----  3. Trailer2 1080p - Avatar.mov.tgmd
-----  3. Trailer2 1080p - Avatar.mov_sheet.jpg
-----  4. Featurette - Creating the World of Pandora.jpg
-----  4. Featurette - Creating the World of Pandora.mov

--  Terminator, The
-----  1. The Terminator 1080p.jpg
-----  1. The Terminator 1080p.m2ts

-----  Terminator, The_sheet.jpg



I recommend numbering the media files contained within the folders for a couple of reasons... firstly, if you intend to contain multiple media items in a folder, it is an easy way to keep them displayed in the order you wish; and secondly, quite often a foldersheet can be replaced with the last moviesheet (in alphabetical order) contained within the folder.  Numbering the media files themselves will guarantee that this won't be an issue, as long as you don't number the folder itself.  Check the Avatar folder structure above for an example.



Examples:

Clemery's Custom FOLDER SHEET:


Clemery's Ultimate MOVIE SHEET:


These sheets allow me to have up to four separate media files contained within.  Look at my Avatar folder structure above, and the 'sheets with thumbs' below for a clear example.  If you would like to have more media files contained within your folder, you can use the Trailers sheet below, which pretty much just removes the screenshots and subtitle panels and expands the thumbnail panel.


Clemery's Ultimate TRAILER SHEET:


Clemery's Ultimate TV SHEETS (Folder/Season/Episode):



Here are some screenshots of these sheets with Thumbs:




A special thanks to A.D. for creating the icons for me (I hope you can see how invaluable they were to my overall theme)... and of course to Dribbler for creating the original (and awesome) Ultimate Glass templates.


Peace out,
Clemery.

Hi everyone

Heres some template I've been working on... it still not completed.. but I got the TV series almost done...
there's still some alingment issue with the title list...
And the only difference between the "No back" version and the other, is that the "No back" will have a black background. even if the metada does contain a background.

Theres a couple of requirement for my sheets to work as intended:
1. It works best for a movie in each folder
2.  you need to have a file named "folder.jpg" inside each folders
3. For the TV Series, you need a jpg file with the exact same name as the movie

Buhric - CoverTrickle - TV - Season( - NoBack)


Buhric - CoverTrickle - TV - Episode( - NoBack)


Buhric - CoverTrickle - Parent Folder( - NoBack)

I love this template and I have been trying to use it all day but with no luck. Can you help me? I have all the movie sheets showing, but the thumbnails were at the bottom of the screen and covering the ones on the sheets. I edited the files as posted above and re created the sheets but that just created sheets without your fancy looking thumbnails but still showed the default ones. Can you give me a step by step guide to get this working please as im baffled

@Buhric

HI, I'm new here, I have a question, I was able to install 1.02.21_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE_MINIMAL-0.4.2 and I created some thumbnails and movie sheets but for some reason the movie sheets don't pop up at all, I was wondering if I can use your template with this firmware and if I can, how do I install it? I downloaded the file but I'm not sure how to install it....Thank you in advance

you need to change your moviesheet mode to STD
telnet into the WDTV and type in
Code: [Select]
config_tool -c MSHEETMODE=std
config_tool -s

Or use ThumbGen v1.1.2 and go to the "Tools" tab and click on the "Change to STD Mode"
then power cyle the WDTV...

Well, it should automaticaly take the season # from the Tokens "ThumbGen" generates
But you could alway edit the Template.xml file and delete it out...

If you are trying to generate for a movie... use  the "Buhric - CoverTrickle - Parent Folder( - NoBack)"

I hope this is not a stupid question, but I've looked and googled like crazy. I'm hoping it's something simple!

I'm editing a template to my tastes, and I want to change the color of the title. I know where to edit it in the xml file, but what I can't figure out is where is that color code coming from? How do you determine the number to put in for the color you want?
