Hi.
I've encountered a problem since one of the new versions I've installed.
Don't ask me which update that was, because lately I'm just listening to the music and didn't bother to check the "Now Playing" or the "Theater Mode", but when I did, I noticed that my artwork was out of place.
It's way bigger than it used to be.
The artwork images are 1000x1000 and scaled down by the XML file, embedded artwork is 450x450.
My notebook resolution hasn't changed, it's still 1920x1080
It used to be all good, but not anymore and I don't want to start from scratch again and hope somebody of you guys can give me a hint why that is and what to do.
The XML files are included in this post, hopefully somebody cares to have a look at it and put me back on track.
If you need further info, please let me know.
Thanks in advance.

I've encountered a problem since one of the new versions I've installed.
Don't ask me which update that was, because lately I'm just listening to the music and didn't bother to check the "Now Playing" or the "Theater Mode"
One of the new versions of what? MB? A Theatre Mode?
I'll ask what version of MB you're using as it's very easy to provide that information. And could very well be helpful in addressing your issue.
What version of MB are you using? (Help > About)
In which Theatre Mode(s) are you seeing this? All? Some? One? If one you'd be much better off posting your issue on its related thread.

And just a point of information, if you're looking for help, you should be providing as much specific information as possible. Such as the things I asked that you didn't include.

It would probably be good to dissect and isolate a clearer example of what you believe the issue is.

Your screenshots show four different albums/tracks.
Even with the two screenshots of Supertramp, one screenshot shows a rating, the other one doesn't.
Were you maybe using different tracks from that album?

If you could narrow things down more clearly and precisely, by using two exact same tracks/albums, specifying precisely what differences you are observing, between what exact versions of MB, that might help.

Thanks for both of your replies.
I probably haven't been specific enough or unclear.
The thing is that my settings haven't been changed at all, the thing is that my XML files are not honored like they used to be before (scaling of album artwork).
It got nothing to do with album or album track what's of ever, these were just samples of the artwork scaling before and now. (some I got from my previous posts on this forum)
If you have a look at my XML files you'll see the resolution of the album artwork scaling, but one of the previous version updates broke that, don't ask me why because I wasn't screwing around with any of my setting as for my needs I was happy as it was (took me hours to get there a couple of years ago).
It would be very much appreciated if you have any ideas or suggestions.

It seems to be working fine for me (although it's hard to tell without having the BlackBee images files).

Try checking your DPI settings and make sure they're still set to 100%
