help .py file to show image

Post by NOTTHESAME »

hey guys i was working on this rom launcher which is a .py file.
can some help me out here please, i been trying to add a code for getting a image to show, i cant seem to find the right code, or i cant seem to place it, heck i the truth is i dont know what im doing.

basicly i want the game console to show when selecting a game, this is for the sega genesis.

this code brings up this image with a list heres a preview.

Image

Code: Select all

import xbmc
import xbmcgui
import os

	
emu = "E:\\Emulators\\Genesis\\default.xbe"
emu = "E:\\Emulators\\Genesis\\gensx_mk.xbe"
dir = "E:\\Roms\\Sega Genesis\\"



def savecut(name):
  f = open("z:\\emu.cut","w")
  d = "<shortcut><path>%s</path><custom><game>%s</game></custom></shortcut>" % (emu,name)
  f.write(d)
  f.close()

def checkdir(tdir):
  dl = os.listdir(tdir)
  ret = xbmcgui.Dialog().select("choose",dl)
  if os.path.isdir(tdir+dl[ret]):
    checkdir(tdir+dl[ret])
  else:
    savecut(tdir+dl[ret])
    xbmc.executebuiltin('xbmc.runxbe(z:\\emu.cut)')

checkdir(dir)

I don't think you can display an image using xbmcgui.Dialog().select(), that just displays a list of options to choose, in your case it's read with os.listdir() - i don't know what that image control does in there, if it's standard or skin specific. http://mirrors.xbmc.org/docs/python-doc ... log-select

You could change to using xbmcgui.Dialog().browse() instead and point it to the directory you want, might get thumbs for folders and files if they have them built in (e.g. xbe) or you define one of those custom XBMC thumb icons. Limitations include not being able to select folders (it will navigate into them) if you need to or you will be able to navigate anywhere from the starting position. Link below to documentation, trying to find XBMC4Xbox specific one, this is XBMC and might contain parameters that we don't support. http://mirrors.xbmc.org/docs/python-doc ... log-browse
