As someone who's gone through and changed just about everything in their Kodi library to support the Australian Classification System, it's pretty upsetting to find out that CinemaVision only supports a handful of rating systems. I'm sure i'm not the only one who'd like support for the Australian Rating system, to make their experience much better if they live in Australia like I do. For those who don't know, the Australian Rating system is as follows: AU:G AU:PG AU:M AU:MA15 AU:R18 AU:X18 I've gone through skins I have downloaded and managed to modify the Variables.xml to allow for the AU system, and this is typically as simple as changing Australia to AU, and changing the 'IsEqual' to 'Contains' for R18 and MA15, as they both have a + symbol that Kodi doesn't seem to like. I'm more than a little confused as to how I'd even go about editing CinemaVision to have this support though. With the support, we'd be able to have our own custom bumpers that match our Classification System. Not to mention, I feel like this is also why whenever I set the Trailers to match the feature, the trailers are suddenly skipped, because my movies aren't matching the 'MPAA:' rating that CinemaVision is expecting. Some movies are rated one thing here and another thing in the US, so a film that's been rated PG-13 in the US (to which our equivalent is M) might just be rated PG here. So it's not as simple as changing the images to look like Australia ratings when in reality CV is reading it as the MPAA rating. Thanks for taking the time read, and hopefully we can get some traction going on this!
Until you support more ratings, I would like to write a guide on getting any country's rating system to work. What are the image and video file names that CV looks for? If this is known then creating your own rating bumpers and fooling CV into thinking they are known could work. E.g. if CV is looking for the MPAA Restricted video or image and it is looking for, say, "R.png" then you could put any image you like in the folder and call it R.png. Then you rescan your library to the MPAA rating (if it is currently another country's rating system), and Bob's your uncle.
