    Sorry, I honestly do not know. I have seen posts here and there having problems getting the album art to update, so there definitely seems to be something causing it, I just do not know what. Sorry.....

    It just doesn't make any sense honestly. The tags update fine, and the art will update if you don't change the screens, so obviously it's not a matter of RR reading the info. Maybe something in RR v.12/06/07 (and prior?) that doesn't allow the indicator to update?

    What about setting up a custom indicator in exectbl.ini? Maybe
    Code:
    "MAINART","$songpath$folder.jpg"
    Not sure if the above code will work or not...

    Or something to that effect.
    That way the indicators are independent of each other and thus will update independently...

    tride the list in the main menu as well, but same result, no improvement.

    The sollution would be in reloading the albumart when switching frome one skinpage to the other.

    First i had pictures in the folders, and didn't install the plugin. That worked. When changing from menu to mp3 player it changed with it. Only problem, imbeded art wasn't showing.

    should somthing like CLEARLIST||RELOADLIST work, anly than with clearalbumart||reloadalbumart?

    Still no update?

    It would be nice to have albumart on more than one screen.

    Has anyone tried to have an indicator with the code:

    "$songpath$*.jpg"

    I might try that later tonight when I get to that computer.

    just did, doesn't work for my skin.

    Funny think is when you change to the next song, you for a moment you see the art that belonged to the song that was playing.

    Maybe found something that would get it working...

    something along the lines of this:

    I think we just need the FILE; added to it. We'd need something to update the indicator on screen and song change though. I'm going to try this out later, and report my results.

    further villification:

    then use commands like:

    This would change on the fly without even needing to reload anything.
    We would just change it to

    I01,xx,xx,xx,xx,"FILE;$myart$"

    "SETVAR;myart;$songpath$folder.jpg"
    or
    "SETVAR;myart;$songpath$*.jpg"

    I tried songpath, trackpath, filepath, etc. and nothing seemed to show the image on the indicator...

    I tried making a variable out of the info above, I tried SETVAR onskinstart, onsongstart, and had a timer set up too.

    What am I missing? what do we need to do to get this to work right?

    Think the easiest solution would be to have a few different mp3art plugins with a different name in them lets say albumart1 for mp3art1, albumart2 for mp3art2, etc...
    I have tried to rename and register it again, but that doesn't do it either. It sees the same art. In the above way it might see it as different art, only problem, you need to know how to alter the dll

    Another solution is to close the screen when your done with it put /DISCARDABLE in that skin-page and it will unload . Only thing, it only works with an “end” screen
    So the audio player no solution. But the albumlist it might be a solution

    For an and-page this works: ad /DISCARDABLE to the and skin, and it wil close this page when you exit.
    To bad it doesn.t work for the menu and the album-player, ther not and pages, so when you use it there, you end up with an empty screen.

    One warning, when you edit the skin in the skineditor, the /DISCARDABLE disapeers, so you have to put it back with a text editor.

    The code of the album info page:

    MEDIACAR Skin

    album day.jpg,album day.jpg,album on.jpg,album night.jpg
