I got it working so that it made a bunch of html files, but do i need to do anything else. Do i just upload those to my web space?

Yep!

Also where does it get the images?

At the moment, here.

Quote:

I dont have that large collection, so an ability to choose the image size would be great

Good things come to those who wait.  (for version 0.5)

Quote:

The current images are smaller then the ones on the thumbnails folder.

See the reply to "where does it get the images"

Also while i was watching DVDP's image folder, i saw loads of "Image Not Available" pictures, eventhough every profile on my collection has cover o_O

Mith,

The companion program kept crashing when trying to process 1038 profiles using your DVD-Live skin.  The most I was able to process was 4. 

This is fun! 


I send you the updated skin vie e-Mail. The other one will not work correctly...
Best regards,

Mithirandir

DVD Profiler only gives you the choice of All, Owned, Ordered, Wishlist.

Mithirandir,

Got your email and will play with it.  In the meantime I found a skin that is very light looks very good on a website.  It's the Canadian skin and a little over 1000 profiles weigh in at a total of 19.9MB.  The results can be seen here.
Gotta nip it in the bud, Andy!

These are very old stuff. In the old days, DVDP would crate one of these for each missing image. At some point Ken decided it's easier to have one image at a different location (forgot where, \media maybe...) for all missing images together.

It is safe to delete all of them, they are just a relict.

Mithirandir,

Ran the companion.exe with the skin.html you sent me and it appears to be working, actually made it past three profiles. 

However, processing over 1000 profiles is taking some time so I won't know if it completed until I get back from work, which is in about seven hours from now.    So, here I sit at the office, wondering if all is well with my computer.

Quite the busy bee aren't you. 

Of course this means I've got to generate all those pages again.    Something to do while I'm sleeping tonight I guess.

Yes, flying around from blossom to blossom and powdering them.

Yes, it could take a little bit longer. 
Im very curious how it works for you and how it will look in the end.

Gonna take me a little bit of time to upload 2500+ headshots to my server. 

EDIT: Ok, appears I had more than 2500 headshots.  My ftp program is telling me close to ~4900.

Ok,

The xlrunner program crashed after doing 288 profiles of my 1036 profile xml file.  This is consistent.  Crashed three times in a row with 288 profiles.  Using Mithirandir's skin those came out to around ~69MB.

Right now I am still uploading headshots to my webserver.  Once those are uploaded I'll upload the 288 profiles that did get done to my website to see how it works.
