$if($strcmp(%album artist%,Various Artists),%artist%,%album artist%)
The corresponding part of the API was changed/shut down. I'd suggest using WSH Panel Mod and one of marc2003's scripts which uses a different method to get the images.
Check the readme marc2003 wrote for it (should come with the zip file). If it's more of a question of 'fitting it in' rather than just 'getting it work at all', you might be better asking the creator of that skin.
How do i avoid this picture from showing up ever again?
Anyone know of a way to make the images load faster? =P Sometimes they don't change for 10 seconds or more. I tried using WSH via that guys post very early in the thread but the file didnt contain anything foralbum art, which is all I care about. WSH makes me crazy too. Are there any other alternatives? been searching google all night and this seems to be the only result besides WSH :\
