NEW FEATURES IN RAPIER 9.x:

HOME
  • The home screen categories are changed and updated. Click here for screenshots.
    This allows for a more modern look, faster load times, smoother animations and reduced skin size. The categories now use a regular text label instead of images, which makes it far more flexible. All home screen widgets top right has been changed slightly and an extra visible item has been added (now 5 items).
    All custom categories have been RESET to "Custom 1", "Custom 2" etc.
    Go to Skin Settings > Home > Category Menu > Add more categories / 2 / 3 / 4 >
    Click the "Name" button to set the category name (this new name is used throughout the skin and also in the skin settings).
    - If home screen navigation buttons are disabled, 11 characters maximum are recommended.
    - If home screen navigation buttons are enabled, 10 characters maximum are recommended.
  • An Events button has been added to the home screen system submenu.
  • Increased the speed of most home screen widgets. Random / Featured widgets now updates every time the home screen is entered.

NEW WINDOWS AND DIALOGS
  • A full event log window has been added (go to System -> System -> Logging -> Show Event Log).
  • Audio DSP Manager window has been added. Screenshot.
  • Audio DSP Settings dialog has been added. Screenshot.

VIEWS

INFORMATION WINDOWS
  • A Manage button has been added to movie information window and several buttons are moved to this menu.
  • A Set My Rating button has been added to the Manage menu. This adds user ratings for movies, tv shows, episodes, music videos etc. Clicking this label opens up the dialog to set it.
  • The song information dialog has been redesigned slightly. It now includes a Set My Rating button and the rating label (star rating images has been removed).
  • An "Auto Update" button has been added to the add-on information window. Use this to enable/disable automatic updates seperately for each add-on.
  • Clicking the path label in the video / music information window will open up the text viewer dialog with the info (useful for long paths if you don't want to wait for the text scrolling).
  • A "Download Extrafanart" button has been added to the video information window.

FULLSCREEN MUSIC
  • Audio DSP button in fullscreen music OSD has been added.

PVR
  • A "Group Timers" button has been added to PVR Timers windows.
  • PVR radio RDS info dialog has been added and an RDS button has been added to fullscreen music OSD.
  • A PVR guide / search window View Option has been added to show the channel icons instead of channel labels. Screenshot.

ADD-ONS
  • The feature to use image resource add-ons.
    - Go to Skin Settings -> Media -> Videos -> Select Movie Genre Icon Pack to install movie genre icons (I recommend installing Xzener's Reflected Icons).
    - Go to Skin Settings -> Media -> Music -> Select Music Genre Icon Pack to install music genre icons (I recommend installing Music Genre Icons - Text).
    - Go to Skin Settings -> Backgrounds -> General -> Select Movie / TV Show Genre Background Pack to install movie or tv show genre fanart (I recommend installing Movie Genre Fanart - Blue Wall).
    - Go to Skin Settings -> Backgrounds -> General -> Select Music / Music Video Genre Background Pack to install music or music video genre fanart. Click here for screenshots
    - Go to Skin Settings -> Backgrounds -> Weather -> Condition (Add-on) to install weather fanart packs.
    - Go to Skin Settings -> Weather -> Select Weather Icon Pack to install weather icons.
  • Support for movie and tv show genre fanart image packs (Skin.Settings > Backgrounds > General) has been added. Click here for screenshots.
    I created 3 genre fanart image packs: Wall Blue, Wall Red and Wall Grey - where Wall Blue works really well for the main blue Rapier theme. Thanks to TBinfection and Buff from the forums.
    Use this button to select a genre background image pack to be used in the movies and tv shows genre node.
  • From Kodi 16 no GUI sounds are shipped directly with skins. The add-on resource.uisounds.rapier ("Rapier UI Sounds") is available in the official repository and should be automatically installed with the Rapier skin. Go to System -> Appearance -> Skin -> GUI Sounds to select your preferred GUI sounds add-on. This can be any GUI sounds add-on from any skin.
  • During fullscreen episode playback, Nextup Notification now includes In Progress episodes list. Click here for screenshots.
    Click the In Progress list to got to that episode instead of the one currently playing.
  • ExtendedInfo auto completions are now hidden when the keyboard dialog requests a password.
  • Skin support for all Audio DSP add-ons. Description and screenshots here.
  • Support has been added for the add-on plugin.program.autocompletion. This is needed for keyboard autocompletions.
  • Added support for script.user.rating. Use this add-on to rate your movies, tv shows or episodes. A "Set My Rating" button has been added to the context menu, and is enabled in Skin Settings > Configure Menus. The dialog used by the script is skinned (requires v1.0.2 or higher). Screenshot.
  • Added support for script.module.t9.search. This add-on is integrated in ExtendedInfo video list window.
  • Support has been added for script.audio.profiles.
  • Added support for script.skin.helper.backgrounds, script.skin.helper.widgets and script.skin.helper.skinbackup

SKIN SETTINGS
  • A new section has been added to the skin settings: Configure Menus. Use this section to enable/disable buttons in the shutdown menu and context menu.

MISCELLANEOUS
  • Stereoscopic 3D support has been added throughout the skin.
  • A context menu button has been added to activate player controls dialog when playing media (disabled by default in the skin settings).
    Skin Settings > Configure Menus > Context Menu > Open player controls
  • A Settings menu dialog has been added to the menubar in the weather window. This allows you to choose weather icons and background fanart packs. Screenshot
  • If you use a remote control or similar, menucontrol tags have been added to all windows for easier navigation. Just press the menu key.
  • Dynamic content is now properly sorted.
  • Oninfo action (press "I" or "Info" key) has been added to open up additional windows and information.
  • Coding input have been added to the keyboard dialog.




WHAT STILL NEEDS TO BE DONE:

I just pushed a development update to my repo.

This update requires script.skin.helper.service and should automatically install version 1.0.0 from the Kodi add-on repo.

For all new features in Rapier version 1.0.9 is needed. I recommend downloading this version directly from Github and installing manually from zip inside Kodi.

I appreciate any feedback.

Just when I thought my Kodi setup was decided I come across this skin and just from looking at the screens it seems like I will have to switch to it. Thank you for obvious hard work that must have gone into this.

You deserve every thank you Gade Smile

Not sure what every new feature are as I stay with the same setting most of the time ,Did play with Custumizing a moment ago though and I found some very nice Icons at:

Anyhow the skin look superb as usual .....I Love the ability to Customize stuff Smile......Would love an way for Art to show up when you download posters yourself in List Info 3 View (They only show if I download from The Artwork Downloader app but not if I get the image from google......Well they show up when I right click and pick info about a movie but not in the place holders in List Info 3 View when adding pictures I got by myself from Google) -Not sure why this is.....maybe something to take a look at as sometimes The Artwork Downloader do not find what I'm looking for and I need to add a better picture from Google or other source-

Thank you again Gade for a superb looking Skin (Theme).

How do you download and add the images? It should work properly. Maybe some screenshots would help Smile

In List Info 3 for movies, the images are poster/extrathumbs (right) and fanart (left). In List Info 3 for tv shows, the images are poster/banner (right) and fanart/tv thumb (left).

Hey, first id like to say that Rapier is the greatest skin since the one on my bones. now with that said ive updated to the jarvis, and the update library button stopped working in the movies and tv shows portion of my setup is this the case for everyone? Now it does still update when launched but i never close Kodi lol. So im sure you see my issue now i shall continue to Close and Reopen before i return to an inferior skin but would love a solution if ones available.

Hi Juggalolie.

Thanks a bunch for all the kind words.

That's strange. The button works fine for me and the code for the button doesn't have any errors.

Could you please try the same button in the library using the Confluence skin, and let me know how it works out?

An add-on that will make your life easier, is the Watchdog service add-on. Once installed it will run as a service and update your music and video library whenever an item is added. You can also configure it to clean your library when items are removed.

Hi Gabe,

Ill Give Watchdog a Go. In the Confluence skin all things are golden for the Movies and the TV Shows(shruggs shoulders).
