Keep in mind that I have each movie in their own folder
1) Whoa…First, having each movie in it’s own folder is going to make this much more complicated. You are only going to get the linksheets when you are in the folder that actually contains the movie. This and other themes are not really designed to be used this way. For this reason, most people use “Genre Folders” that contain many movies. You can make sheets for folders, but this is a whole different issue and I would suggest that you get your sheets working for your movies first before dealing with this.
So: Do your linksheets work when you go into the individual folders that have the movie? To see the linksheet, you have to be inside the folder that has the movie. The way you are setup with individual folders, you are not going to get a thumbnail for each folder. You would have to make a thumbnail, name it folder.jpg and put it in the folder.
2) Noting that you mention that a slide starts to play, did you setup the slideshow transition under photo setup like it is displayed on page 3 of the PDF that comes with the theme? It is critical that you have the interval set to 5 minutes
I am unclear from your post how many views you are able to see. Sounds like just three. You should be able to get the five following views by cycling through with the yellow button. If you dont get all five, I am guessing there is a real issue with the install
Gallery View for Linksheet (thumbnails on bottom)
Preview Mode (TV Screen on the right)
Video Browse Mode (2 Rows of each 8 thumbnails)
Large Video Browse (1 Row of thumbnails with reflections
List View Mode (looks like a folder structure)
4) Read Both Manuals that come with the Theme:
The theme has two PDFs that come with it. One is the v1.9 user guide, and one is the linksheet guide. You need to read these several times and make sure you have installed the theme correctly and understand the sheets. DeVicious wrote out step by step how to install, how to setup the HUB, and how to use Thumbgen. You need to follow the steps EXACTLY for the install. If you are getting nowhere, I would even try deleting the theme and starting from scratch just to make sure it has been done correctly.
5) Do the Demo:
When you unpacked “goodbye Black Mamba Theme Pack.rar” to get theme, you got a folder called “Demo (look inside first)”. Try the demo to see if you can get that to work. There is a folder full of linksheets that you copy to the root of the theme, and Movie and TV demos that you can copy onto your HUBs root like you would for a folder of movies of your own. When the demo is installed, you will have a folder of movies and tv shows on your hub, and they should show the linksheets. Get the demo up and working, and you will see what you need to do to get your own setup working.
If you cannot get the demo working, I am not sure where to go from there. Sure you could have a bad install of the theme. You could delete it an reinstall. I also would full reboot the HUB from powered down after you build a bunch of linksheets. Sometimes this helps.
That’s about the best I can tell you with the info posted. I would get the demo working, and you will be able to see how the files are supposed to be setup and working.
Good luck, hopefully some of this info helps.
