If you are talking about your folder.jpg ... getting 'Duplicated Twice' ?
If so, please read again the part "Important Note About List View"
The Original post is on Page 7.

yeah i did see that sorry, is there a workaround? also on previous page i noted that some of the film titles are cut off on the moviesheet due to their length, is there a way to remedy this? thanks again for great theme

Hey, I really love the theme. I am having troubles with some items as well though. First, it would be great if there were some workaround for making a thumbnail or movie sheet for folders that looks good. Everything I try makes them look terrible and it really detracts from the theme. Second, when using playon through DLNA the icons and such aren't customisable so it would be awesome if the view could be only active on local content or network shares and it would default to a standard thumbnail view for media servers. I don't know if either of those things is possible but the problems with some of the content looking bad makes the whole theme lose a lot of polish.
BTW, what are the proper dimensions for folder thumbnails? I can't get them to even fit the box right...even if they don't show up like moviesheets it would look much better if they weren't chopped in half.
Anyway, thanks for all the hard work. I love were this particular theme is heading. I like the idea of keeping it simple and that is the main draw for me. I don't want individual folders with multiple structures. I wish the people at WD would change the automated tool to create a similar setup to this without the backdrops slowing everything down.

I redid my folder icons, delete the thumbnail folder from the live, reboot, replace and then they looked fine. I also found that the size really didnt matter, seems the Live resizes it anyway. I was using 120x180 but then I switched to something like 326x500, they look crisp and clear. I also put a glass overlay on them to make them look a bit nicer.
I wish we could use a 'folder.png' file for the folder.jpg . I put this in as a request so if you'd care to give me a thumbs up it'd be appreciated.

Hey Joey, Just loaded yours last night. I have now modified your TG Template to fit my likings a little more, Thanks for the theme and the base template.
I will be modifying again to match but to support TV and post later.
Two problems I am having with the actual theme though.
1. When viewing music and seeing all the music in a folder
Music [viewing this folder is fine]
--- OST [viewing this folder shows the images but the image is cut in half and the top half is duplicated in the top and bottom]
------ nightmare before xmas [viewing this folder shows the big image to the right but the image is cut in half and the top half is duplicated in the top and bottom... except the bottom one is in the middle of the screen instead to the right]
------ corpse bride
2. Once opening "Videos" I have my folders... Movies, HD Movies, Exercise, TV Series, Kids Movies, Temp Movies
Above these folders is a giant image of a folder... any way to remove this?

Been away for just over a week only to come back to find this release.
I am truely speechless Joey, this is an amazing piece of work. Your theme is going to be popular thats for sure.......
Only limitation for me personally is that it doesn't work for movies in individual folders. Otherwise i might have even switched from using my own theme to yours its that good.
Keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing more of your work.
You certainly have pushed the boundaries of what i was thought was possible at the time i discovered the moviesheet trick and along with firetix worked on.
Kudos to you Joey........
Funny thing is that one of your views is very similar to an idea i had whilst sitting on the plane about using wide thumbnails to solve the 'no thumbnail' issue. i will post more about my idea on my thread.

My slight modifications for Joeys templates
If anyone is interested in them, they can be found here.
*Update*: If you are missing the IMDB and runtime images its because they are located in the "common" folder and you do not have the latest ExtremeMix Mega Hub Theme Pack 3.0 installed to your templates directory. Another alternative for these 2 files is extract this and place in ThumbGen\Templates\Common\Images\ folder. If you dont have these folders, create them. [thanks mbyte]
