I's time for a new thread with a new version of the WDTV MSG ; version 1.7.x  ;)

The source code can be found here.
Feel free to download and improve/enhance the code. If you feel you have made worthwhile additions to the application let me know ; I can add you as a developer to the project.

Previous versions can be found here :

v1.5.x : http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=1349.0
v1.6.x : http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=4256.0

WDTV Movie Sheet Generator v1.7.1.  (11 aug 2012)
It can be downloaded here :http://wdtvmsg.codeplex.com/downloads/get/469056

WDTV Movie Sheet Generator v1.7.0.
It can be downloaded here : http://www.mediafire.com/?ggkrwjnbxlngvia


Release notes v.1.7.1
---------------------------

- BUGS FIXED
-- If more studio names are collected, only the first 1 was processed for %STUDIOS%. So if the first studio mentioned did not have a png file, the other ones were not checked (which maybe do have a png)
-- Template file name needed to be called Template.xml, anything different from that (like template.xml) made the program stop and give error messages.
-- Trailing comma in actors field on GUI when IMDB was selected
-- Several tagline issues ; Not showing on GUI, Not written to xml file, %TAGLINE% not working
-- rating shows correctly again
-- Big improvements in the logic of automatic mode (regarding quality/resolution) in the way backdrops and posters are downloaded.


- NEW FEATURES
-- Template support added for %VIDEOFORMAT% (already added in 1.7.0 but not mentioned)
-- The section of templates where template specific icons are mentioned like sound formats, video formats and media formats are read so these icons will be placed on moviesheet.
-- VC-1 detection implemented
-- Template support added for %DURATION%, %DURATIONSEC% AND %DURATIONTEXT%

BTW : I removed manual selection of audio/video icons from GUI, as no longer needed imho.

Please feel free to try and share your comments here.

Release notes v.1.7.0
---------------------------

- BUGS FIXED
-- %TITLEPATH% variable no longer stops moviesheet processing
-- MSG didn't show ratingstars correctly if star_yellow_24x24.png contained more than 1 star
-- Program no longer stops processing sheet, if star_yellow_24x24.png is not found at location specified in template

- NEW FEATURES
-- MSG now creates moviesheet according to size specified in template
-- More movie info downloaded and written to Movie_Info.xml.
-- Template support added for %RESOLUTION%, %MEDIAFORMAT%, %SOUNDFORMAT% and %SOUNDFORMAT2%
-- Template support added for %ORIGINALTITLE%, %STUDIOS% and %COUNTRIES%
-- Template support added for %RATINGPERCENT%, %MPAA%, %CERTIFICATION%, %TAGLINE%
-- Template support added for {TITLECASE}, {UPPER}, {LOWER}
-- Template support added for %FRAMERATETEXT%, %ASPECTRATIOTEXT%, %FILESIZETEXT%, %VIDEORESOLUTION%

it is good, I just wish there was the ability to extract it to a folder of my choosing and not have to install it with every release, that is the main reason I use ThumbGen for most of my sheets..
You laugh because Iím different, I laugh because youíre all the same.

I agree. It's annoying to do that over and over. Shall look into that someday.

Nice work Ron!! Glad to see you keep up with such a good work!!!!

Just notice it is not creating the _sheet anymore.

Even though I select the Cylent option.

Just a heads up.

EDIT:

Sorry man forgot it saved outside the folder.

Eveything is fine.

Hello Ron,

I register on this forum only to thank you for your tool. It's really a nice tool, very efficient, without any error.

I've tried previously Thumbgen, each time i'm trying to process datasheet, i've got a fatal error (and my computer is up to date). So boring.

Your tool is definitely a great tool, and i would like to thank you for this.

By the way, as a n00b, I still have some question (of course):

I'm using the REEL template, which created inside each movies folders:

backdrop.jpg
movieexample.avi
cover.jpg
movie_info.xml
thumb.db
wd_tv.jpg

But i don't understand how to display the datasheet with the movie picture and summary of my movies on my tv. My firmware is the latest WDLXTV version.

If my template is the REEL one (selected in WDTV MSG), which osd mod must i choose? I'm a bit lost...

@Mydriaze,
You are posting in the gen1 forum, so I assume you have a gen1, correct ?
What have you selected on the settings2 tab?
I only have gen1 so don't know much about other players.

Hi Ron,

first of all, thanks for your answer.

Yes, i own a WDTV Gen1.

I'm currently a bit lost concerning how to display my movies like this: http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=5915.0

My firmware is the latest WDLXTV. But i don't understand how to choose and install an osd mod, like the REELTAKE 2 from the above link.

I'm probably doing something wrong. I know this is not the best place to discuss of this, but i appreciate to discuss with someone, as i'm feeling a bit lonely on the Gen1 forum...

Cheers.

I've been trying out this and it's great!
My thanks to beanian and the rest of the developers who have taken his work and continued to develop it.

But...... The command line doesn't work for me. Win 7 32bit. When trying the following bat file,

Code: [Select]
set folder="C:\Users\Scott\Videos\13 Assassins (2011)\"
set name="13 Assassins (2011)"
cd C:\Program Files\WDTV MSG 1.7.0\
WDTVMovieDBGenerator.exe %name% %folder%

I get the error
Quote
Arithmetic operation resulted in an overflow.

Am I doing something wrong, or is the command line not working properly?

Never tried commandline and Beanian probably neither. Doubt it is programmed to work via commandline.

I downloaded/installed it, but it just says "Unable to connect to the remote server" over and over, no matter which movie title I click on.

The command line was (allegedly) available from v1.5

I have also included a batch mode and command line mode.
In order to use the command line mode you need to run the .exe and pass 2 parameters (1) the movie name (2) the directory you want the generated files to be put in.

Looking at the source code from wdtvmsg-69321.zip in form1.vb
Code: [Select]
            If Environment.GetCommandLineArgs.Length > 1 Then
                Dim retValue = Environment.GetCommandLineArgs
                Dim sMovieName = retValue(1)
                Dim sDirectory = retValue(2)
                'silent mode
                Me.Visible = False
                generateSilent(sDirectory, sMovieName)
                Application.Exit()
            Else


That's the full knowledge of my programming. The command line option seems to be incorporated, just broken  :'(

@ nallen1 ; imdb or themoviedb site is having issues is you get a message like that. Nothing MSG can do about that. Try again later.

@ Eejit01 ; I'll see if I have some time to look into that commandline thing. Thx for reporting.

Thanks very much Ron. It was the cmd line that drew my attention to this software. I was hoping to call it from SABnzbd.
