If you just want to copy the movie screen and use the new screen for home videos. Goto the movie screen and press Pause/break, click screen and in "New screen" type your new name for the copyed sceen, press clone. Done. (if the name turns red it´s allready taken)
You vill have to change the category name from movies to eg. home video and change your database form movies to home video
You vill also need some new events like goto home video and so on to use from your menus.
But i vill try to guide you throgh some more advanced stuff.
Ok. what we vill try to do is to show tree different databases in your movie screen from only one button.
First, make three new databases; movies, homevideo and musicvideos and don´t mix them (no music videos in your movies database
Goto your movie screen and hit Pause/break.
Now select your "home video"-button.
delete any text you have set to the button and also delete any events set to this button.
If your don´t have a home video button just make a new one and place it right in your movie screen.
Now ad an id to your button, i will use movietoggle as id:
Now select events in skin editor
Add three new toggle states to your button, i will use movies (defalt), musicvideo and homevideo. See img:
Close your skin editor and press f2
Under events add three new ones, i will use movietogglemovie, movietogglehomevideo and movietogglemusicvideo.
Add three new commands to your events:
1. button state set
3:button set text
and set the commands as shown in img:
(the category name should only be movies if this is the correct category that you are using in your movie screen)
Now open skin editor again and select your homevideo button.
From event (img 2) assign click events to your different toggle states.
toggle state movies: set click event movietogglemovie, to state musicvideo set movietogglemusicvideo and state homevideo set movietogglehomevideo.
Now when you click your home video button in movie sceen the databases vill toggle betven the three states above.
The cool thing with xlobby is that you can do the same thing in many different ways. Check this tutorial: http://www.xlobby.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4778
If you use this you can folder your home videos in eg. vaccation, home, the girls, contry house, and so on.
Any chance of talking me through creating a new screen eg for home movies with the same kind of format as Movies, so I could have screenshots instead of movie covers to identify my ever growing collection of home movies of my 2 little girls?
I don´t understad what you want to do here, a movie cover is the same as a screenshot... If your home video dont show a "movie cover" it´s because you don´t have your folders right. Do you have screenshots for every singel homevideo in your homevideo folders?
can you instruct xlobby to use a particular program eg VLC to play a single particular movie
First make a event in event manager that would launch a movie with eg. VLC
(eg. command:execute file , File :C:\Program Files\VLC\vlc.exe, Arguments: %movies>parameter% )
Now you have to edit your movie database, click on the movie that you want to launch with VLC and click advanced and assign your new VLC event to your singel movie.[/quote]
Hope You find some thing usefull
