adding support for trilogies/quadrilogies etc..

Jan 17, 2010 at 1:54 PM

A neat feature should be de support for trilogies.

now movie1 movie2 movie3 etc.. are all apart from eachother, i like to have these movies combined (like TheTVDB).

Ive also seen that some of the graphics in the tvixie templates arent generated in MSG (like mirrorglass).

what so you guys (or girls) think of these things?

Hmm, not so sure on this.

For TV series it makes sense, but for movies some people will want them together, others separate.

Personally I keep them separate, so there is a different moviesheet for each movie in the trilogy, so I can see their individual runtimes/ratings/summary etc.

i was more thinking about this:

trilogy sheet
|_movie1 sheet
|_movie2 sheet
|_movie3 sheet

each having their own sheet but are combined by 1 main sheet

You can already do this, eg create the following folders :

trilogy, trilogy/movie1, trilogy/movie2, trilogy/movie3

Then run WDTV-MSG over the trilogy folder and it will generate the sheets for movie1,movie2 and movie3. You can then manually create a moviesheet for the "trilogy" folder by dowloading a poster and backdrop (maybe use google images?) and put the text in yourself.

Theres no way the WDTV-MSG program will be able to generate this sheet for you since there will be no movie on IMDB called "trilogy", so no posters/backdrops/summary will be available.
