2.2.50 Release

Visual Studio 2012, Windows 8, WiX Toolset FTW!
Added by fatal about 4 years ago

Please check your settings after update, as some might have changed or reset.

WiX Toolset

I've been wanting to switch my installer to the WiX Toolset for a while now and finally got a reason to do so. Upgraded to Windows 8 (yes, I'm liking it) and Visual Studio 2012 (still on .NET 4.0 Framework) and didn't realize that VS2012 killed off Visual Studio setup projects, so I kind of had to switch my installer.

The update to WiX had a little learning curve as everything is setup through a XML configuration file, but you get the hang of it after playing around with it. The new installer adds a "Launch meta<browser/>" checkbox at end of install/update and also takes care of adding permissions to the ProgramData\MetaBrowser 2.0 folder, although you still need to run as administrator if you are using the web service.

XBMC Frodo

With the release of XBMC Frodo comes a new local/saver plugin (available through Auto Update) to read/save metadata compatible with Frodo. Use the following steps to easily convert your existing Eden metadata to Frodo. The steps are the same whenever you want to convert metadata from one format to another.

  • Set XBMC - Eden as your Primary Local in Settings->Movies->Locals and Settings->TV->Locals
  • Disable (uncheck) XBMC - Eden Saver in Settings->Movies->Savers and Settings->TV->Savers
  • Enabled (check) XBMC - Frodo Saver in Settings->Movies->Savers and Settings->TV->Savers
  • Press Process All
  • Uncheck all checkboxes in all four tabs (Movies/Series/Season/Episode) under the Settings tab
  • Check "Include locked items"
  • Click on the "Generate" button and wait for it to finish generating your list
  • Check "Process locked items"
  • Check "Force save images" (not Force update images)
  • Click on "Process" and wait for it to finish processing
  • Set XBMC - Frodo as your Primary Local in Settings->Movies->Locals and Settings->TV->Locals
  • Click "Rebuild" to rebuild your media collection list

Please note that currently there is no way to delete/remove Eden level metadata, so both will remain.

TMDb 3.0

The TMDb plugin has been updated to use their v3.0 API. v2.1 is not being developed anymore and will eventually be phased out and v3.0 adds some niceties such as ordering posters based on your preferred language...no more posters in different languages popping up b/c they are higher rated.

Read here about TMDb API 3 which also lists some differences from v2.1.

%eval()

A new %eval() function is now available in mappings. This will only apply to Regex mappings and you can only put the %eval() in the replacement value. This function will be most useful for Sorting (Filename) mapping, basically the %eval() function allows you to evaluate mathematical expressions..ie, subtract one from a particular season/episode number.

Here are two examples (Sorting Filename Mapping) a user is using and may be of help to others who watch American Dad or Portlandia:

For Portlandia season 3, we need to subtract 1 from the episode number:

Type:        Regex
Pattern:     ^(Portlandia.S03E)([0-9]{2})
Replacement: $1%eval($2-1)

For American Dad we always need to add 1 to the season number (it's been like this for the last couple of seasons):

Type:        Regex
Pattern:     ^(American.Dad.S)([0-9]{2})
Replacement: $1%eval($2+1)
