Hi all dune users.
I've adapted and created 3 new templates for the dune index export.
first, let's start by the "How to" :
1. dowload the .zip that you want. unzip it, it will contain a .xml as well as some .png files
XP user need to go to
"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\My Movies\FileStorage\User Customization\Meta Data\Dune Templates"
Win7 user go to :
"C:\ProgramData\My Movies\FileStorage\User Customization\Meta Data\Dune Templates"
3. in "..\Dune Templates", create a new folder with exact same name as the .xml file in the zip (for "Template 2.xml" create a "Template 2" folder, with same capital "T"). If you want to install the 3 templates, you will need to create 3 new folders.
4. copy/paste in this new folder everything you will find in the "..\Dune Templates\My Movies Default" folder
5. copy/paste in new folder the .png files corresponding and that you found in the .zip (.png in "Template 2.zip" in "Template 2" folder, say OK for overwriting files)
6 copy paste the .xml file in "..\Dune Templates" (next to "My Movies Default.xml")
7. go to CM/Options/metadata/dune config and voilą, you will find in the "template" the new templates you just installed along with the My Movie Default. Select the one you want and run a full update of your index to recreate the backdrops.
The templates :
"Template 2" : based on the MM Default, but this is a condensed version with bigger view of the backdrop and a dimmed overlay (I really hate the default one that takes too much place...) invisible on black backdrops, but usefull for reading on white backdrop. Changes apply for movies, template for episodes is MM default (but with the new overlay).

"Template 3" : adapted from "Glass" template for Yadis by user DonJuan2000 (you can say "thank you" to him here : http://www.mpcclub.com/forum/showpos...&postcount=284
). Black overlay, easy to read, large backdrop. I mixed both Glass and only kept the poster for cover (no DVD/HDDVD/BR cover). This time I also adapted it for episodes (also from DonJuan)

"Template 4" : also from DonJuan "Polar" work ("thank you" here : http://www.mpcclub.com/forum/showpos...&postcount=254
Very different from the normal one, very big description easy to read on smaller screen. Episodes adapted as well.

I hope you will enjoy it, and that there'are the first of a long list (mpcclub is full of very beautifull templates if you need some inspiration...).
If you find any bug (text too long that doesn't fit in a window for example), just post here and I will correct it. If you want to make changes, just remember that Template 3 and 4 are an original creation from DonJuan2000 on mpcc, it would be fair to ask him if you can change it (that's what I did, and it was not a problem).
