Broken in latest SD
Anyone else notice this mod crashes SD in the latest 188.8.131.52? It was working fine prior to that in 184.108.40.206. Now it just seems to crash SD when you tell it to refresh the movies.
- load SD
- go to other programs
- click Movie plugin
- click refresh times
- SD crashes, goes into XP, puts up big gray dialog box with "OK"
There's no "error" per se. And I checked the logs and don't see anything interesting.
Yeah... Weird... I wonder if it is some strange skinning issue, are you using the default skin?
Yes sir. In fact, I've NEVER gotten any skins to work. They always seem to crash SD. lame. Are you seeing this behavior too?

Anyway, it is fixed. Updated on my site and MP3CAR wiki.
I don't suppose you'd like to make this for Centrafuse? Given the state of SD these days, I've started to use CF more and more. I really would love this as a plugin.
Well... I used to use CF/SD 50-50, but it's been months since CF ran on my PC it crashed long ago and I never was able to get it back :(. I am thinking of buying a new PC, which will hopefully make it better (i am pretty sure it's my video chipset that's the issue). So I can reevaluate then...
Marchello, don't know if you're still there, but I tested Movie Theater Showtimes DigitalMod and want to thank you for putting it together! As others have stated, you are one of the very few who promises a product and actually delivers! I would like to ask if you can possibly do a couple of things though, to make it more useful:
1. After you search by theaters, and find one you like, you can click on it to view movies that will be playing, as well as their respective showtimes. However, you can't always see the showtimes, because sometimes movies play in the late morning, afternoon, evening, and late night. Unfortunately, if there are too many movies playing, you can't view the showtimes for anything later at night. I was wondering if you can create some kind of button which allows you to click on one particular movie, and then it gives you ALL the showtimes on a new screen for that particular selection? Right now the button is clickeable, but it doesn't take you anywhere. It would be great if you can click on it and then view detailed information about showtimes that you can't neccessarily see on the button/list. On this new screen, you can possibly also include artwork, synopsis, and/or ratings from the site you are downloading from?
2. Can you also put a search by city/state? I don't have internet connection, so I want to be able to download information about movie theaters around the city I will be visiting. Unfortunately sometimes I know the city name, but not the zip code. I know there is the option to search based on GPS location, but once I'm away from home, I can't access the internet and therefore cannot download data. So a search based on city/state would be helpful too. I think you can put it on the same screen as where you put in zip, but give users the option to search by city/state OR zip.
Thanks again for contributing! :D
Also, one more small thing. Can you rename this module from "MovieScout" to "Movie Scout" (with a space in between)? Right now, when SD voice reads it, it sounds very awkward. Or if you know how I can rename it, let me know, and I'll go ahead and change mine! Thanks again!
Good suggestions. I will add it to my list!
