Title: media.<filetype>
Post by: firewater on January 27, 2019, 08:34:49 AM
I'm looking to modify the medium_artwork path for a collection, but I've been unsuccessful so far. The documentation says to modify "media.<filetype>" (, but I've tried:
Code: [Select]
media.medium_artwork = M:/Media/Games/Metadata/Super Nintendo/medium_artwork
media.<filetype> = M:/Media/Games/Metadata/Super Nintendo/medium_artwork
meda.medium_artwork = M:/Media/Games/Metadata/Super Nintendo/medium_artwork
meda.<filetype> = M:/Media/Games/Metadata/Super Nintendo/medium_artwork
all without success.

Those paths are per filetype (and per collection), so you need to set one for each type (logo, video, etc.). What exactly are you trying to do?

I'm loading screenshot_1, screenshot_2, and fanart placed in "metadata/<collection>/medium_artwork/" with this:
Code: [Select]
<reloadableImage type="screenshot_1" x="370" y="780" xOrigin="center" yOrigin="center" height="200" layer="4">It works for all collections beacuse the collection name always matches a folder in "metadata", but this one doesn't. So I want to load "metadata/Super Nintendo/medium_artwork/fanart" images for a collection called"Super Nintendo Alternative".

edit: aaaand like you say, I have to do it per type, so "M:/Media/Games/Metadata/Super Nintendo/medium_artwork/screenshot_2" is the complete path, thanks !
