Hello! Just one question. The HTML Cards do not show Actors' Pictures for each episode of tv show, though they are included in the cast. Could you work on the card that would show such actor photos for each episod?

That is a special XMM function. This function is only on the main movie card available at the moment.

On the Episode Card XMM only adds one text field with all Actors/Roles.

I already requested this addition to the Episode Card a few times in the past...

So no hope for a quick fix?

No. Only Ale can add this function.

There has to be additional variables for the Episode Card and a code inside XMM that replicates the HTML-Code part for each Actor just like on the Main Card.

Since this function isn't that easily done in XMM I can somehow understand that Ale isn't eager to add this...

Well, the current situation is even worse. I have added the tv show "Game of Thrones". And the software added only four actors! I have used IMDB.COM (TVSeries) For Rel.7.txt. But if you look at the IDMB page, the cast includes only 4 actors but you can go for a full cast and crew. Unfortunately the software inludes only 4 actors and ignores the other actors ...

That I did on purpose, because the in the TV Show itself should only be the regular Main Cast like on the Main IMDB.COM Page. The Rest of Cast (Guest Stars,...) should only go into the appropriate Episodes and that is the way I programmed the Script.

But this does not make sense because these 4 actors are not the main actors of the tv show. So for example, Sean Bean is not listed, though he is the main actor of the show ... Afterwards when you click at his Actor Card, there is no information that he plays in this TV show.

Then the data on IMDB.COM is wrong and that problem should be reported to that site (IMDB.COM)... So that the site can be corrected.

Just look at some most popular tv shows , there it's correct. I'm not responsible for wrong data on some sites...

I can't say anything to that particular show, I don't know this tv show.

imdb.com shows only 4 actors on their info page to the show.
Normally there are the main actors of the show - but not in this case.
So like Prinz has said: it's a bug / wrong information on their site!

In order to achieve what is possible, you have to try the impossible over and over again.

I understand your reasoning for making this script only add characters from the main page, but some shows like "Charmed" have more than 4 main characters. Would it be possible to change the script so that you could select the number of cast to download, like in the movie scripts?

Would be complicated, because the rest of Cast is on a subsite with different layout...

But I think the Actors are sorted automatically on IMDB.COM, on the objective reason in how many Episodes there were. That probably the reason that new Shows with few Episodes aren't correctly sorted.

Ok, I understand. I download any of the extra actors that I need using thetvdb.com script. Thank you for explaining.
