What did you two define as "MyCountry" in settings. Try setting that to "USA" to locate the problem. 


As German citizen I wrote "Deutschland" as "MyCountry" in settings.

With "USA" the flag is visible...

Doh!

I understand the confusion. I think Oliver should have named this variable "USA_Flag" and than false or true...

Yes, thought that it may lead to confusion. This is only used for switching between the US or UK flag for the English language. 

Excerpt from ReadMe: 
Currently supported are "USA" and "United Kingdom".

Ok, I have one! 
What about adding a new tab-page like "details" where you can put some additional text-info about the movie like "trivia" "goofs", "reviews", "quotes" etc.

This will be included into version v1.52 of my skin. 
I always wanted to do that (especiallly when I see that this information has been entered into the overview or easter egg field of a DVD), but have forgotten it until you remembered me...

I could do a download, but there will be trouble in including that into the skin, so I fear you will have to add this manually to the notes field similar to the details tag.

This will unfortunately not be supported as these information are part of the tag system, which could only be completely enabled/disabled. It will behave like the details tag!

Oliver, I am very interested in adding the Saturn Awards (Academy of Science Fiction,Fantasy and Horror films, Click Here For More Info)

If you have no problems with this, please send me a templete excel sheet to get started with, and before too long (a month or 2 or 6  ,) I will have it ready.

Doug, basically you have the template already 

Just use the file I have previously sent you for creating the Golden Globe list... If the format stays the same, it will be fairly easy for Oliver to this to the skin.

(Hmmm, Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, sounds interesting.)

BTW, the Golden Globe list is coming along slower than expected, as John was having computer trouble. I hope he is up and running now and will send me the missing part soon.

Right my dear. Very interesting! 

By the way, I'm currently busy to develop the v.152 version with some little improvements...

How clumsy of me to forget, yes I do have the template, so my work will begin soon.

A little bug to correct for V1.52:

The line

var INCLUDETITLE  = false;    // include title.gif in Gallery Overview display

in the settings has no effect on the gallery. The title.gif is still shown in the gallery with both: "false" and "true"...

Optionally selected in the settings-file... 


Sounds nice. But this will take some time, David. 


Tags processing is implemented for "trivia" "goofs", "reviews" and "quotes". Perhaps, download is also possible; perhaps, I will use links to the IMDb pages.

I will rethink this for v1.52, folks as there are too many people, who cannot read!

Ok, I am going to begin work on the saturn awards tonight, but I have a question first. FTM, can I just include the award that apply to films and leave the others out (i.e. Best Publicist, Special Awards, Etc.), unless of course there is much demand for a complete listing. Let me know what you guys think.

Glad to hear that as for me the DVDP-Database i also a movie- and not only a DVD-archive  .

IMDb auto-download IMO is not a must because all that trivia etc. stuff can be copied from other good movie-sites, too (and not only in english which is a disadvantage of IMDb)...

Personally I wopuld prefer a complete list. Similar to what I have done (and am doing) with the Academy Awards list. That way the list can also be used for general "browsing of the Awards". It could be made available for others through Doug's Resource Centre as well as my website.

Of course, that means quite some more work for you and I'd understand if you would rather not do it. Then it would basically only apply as award data for the skin.

I would also prefer a complete list, Doug. 

Meanwhile, I'm busy with creating v1.52 which will feature up to now:

- Revised Themes Feature (for common Background Themes)
- Details (aka EPG's) read in from Files
- Support for Quotes, Trivia, Reviews and Goofs Tags
- All new Tag's optionally read in from files
- Direct Links to the IMDb Quotes, Trivia, Reviews, Goofs and Soundtracks 

Additionally, I'm developing a possibility to create a detailed list of each movie in your collection, which received an award to have a better overview. What will follow is a kind of award statistics I'm currently not knowing what it may look like. 
Best regards,

Mithirandir
