Movie Template PEGGIE (with fanart)!

On the aniversary of my late Mother's passing, I dedicate this template to her memory and offer it for download.

PEGGIE now comes in five formats
v1 in English with field results marked in text
v2 in international format with icons instead of text headers
v3 in international format with text headers
v3 for tvixie v1.3.1+ added 18/07/10
v3 for tvixie v1.3.1+ (1080p) version for Mede8er and HTPC added 23/08/10
v3 for tvixie v1.3.1+ CERTIFICATION and COUNTRY data added added 25/08/10
v4 for DiVX - an adaptation of v3
v5 for DVD - an adaptation of v3 (added 10/12/09)

PEGGIE sees an innovation on my part, the removal of stars for ratings and the introduction of an easier to read Ratings Meter. The Ratings Meter shows one continuous line along with the score shown as a percentage. To further aid viewing of the score, low ratings will show more red in the background. (Try it yourself by manually adjusting a score!). The rating is automatically converted to a percentage from the score which is obtained in your TViXiE search!

PEGGIE also introduces an automatic case effect to the album cover and includes the ability to use fanart as a background and if you don't use fanart, PEGGIE will render your tvix.jpg in the style of a conventional TViX background with all data on black which in itself can also look quite stylish!

v1 Allows long movie titles to be spread over two lines whilst v2 allows for inclusion of Title and Original title which has been requested in the forums for non-English speaking users.

About fanart
The concept is to take a shot from the movie or use your own artwork and use this as a basis for your finished tvix.jpg. It might sound like a daunting proposistion but many have been doing this for a long time. PEGGIE makes this procedure easier for you.

How to use PEGGIE
    1 Prepare your movie as you would normally do
    2 Go HERE and enter the movie name in the grey box at TOP RIGHT
    3 Select a screenshot from the result page and open it
    4 When the new page opens RIGHT CLICK and select copy
    5 If neccessary, PASTE the image into your image editor and resize/resample it to 1280x720
    6 SAVE it to your movie folder as fanart.jpg
    7 Run TViXiE as normal selecting PEGGIE as your template.
Congratulations! You have now have created your new tvix.jpg!

I have now created a batchfile to make creation of fanart easier. Details and Download HERE

Really like your rating meter, very creative way of doing it!
Oh and never noticed you could put in the path of the movie as a variable.. doh

nice work, coolstream.

I'm not getting the case effect on the folder.jpg though, does something special have to be done?

Thanks, xnr.

Did you try manually lowering the rating in | Movie Information | Edit Movie Information... | to see the gradual red background? I think it really makes low scores stand out more.

I agree that the introduction of %TITLEPATH% was very useful! More info here

Mike, no extra work is required. Let me check the templates and I will report back.

Did you try both templates?

UPDATE:
I have tested the two versions and cannot see any error. I have however cleaned up the folder names because the originals were using my working titles. Apologies to those who have already downloaded them.

I will monitor this thread for any further error reports.

That's weird, I still can't get the folder effect on folder.jpg

I tried doing a new movie, in case just changing the template on a current one was the problem, but it still didn't put any effect on folder.jpg

I've only tried the english one.

EDIT: Tried Peggie v2, same thing. No effect on folder.jpg

The 'problem' appears to have come from from a misunderstanding of what PEGGIE actually does, so the description will be updated.

PEGGIE is working 100% :)

Coolstream,

just a minor glitch: if you have a rating of 6.92 over 10 the percentage of the meter is broken, it reports "69, %".

The problem seems to be the second digit of the decimal number. With a 6.9 rating it seems to work fine.

Hi Axel,

I haven't found a rating that had 2 decimal places, so I thought that my placing of the digits was optimal.

I had to get a balance between the amount of decimal places and the space between the score and the % sign. I could have allowed up to 7 decimal places but this would have resulted in the % sign being right at the RIGHT side of the meter window :shock:

If you prefer, I could remove the % sign altogether which would allow for a rating of 69.12345678 :lol:

In reality, I'd be happy to upload a tweaked template if you think it necessary or alternatively advise you of the variables requiring a tweak :)

Keep up the bug hunting!
