So I am a little late at posting this but I wanted to give a heads up to everybody who tried downloading AZ:FA a week or two ago. The NBD repository is actually backed by Amazon S3 which means when it went down so did the repository although if you were fortunate enough to be connected to a server that already had it in the cache thanks to Amazon CloudFront then you had no issues - otherwise you shouldn't have anymore problems unless AWS' S3 goes down... again.

Finally, an update on AZ:FA 5. Progress is going slow but steadily. Since this is the next big leap I want to make sure we're at a good base to work from and that's taking a little longer because part of AZ:FA's preview releases were done as I was moving meaning very minimal bug checking. However, tomorrow is the 11th and there's just no way it'll be ready tomorrow. I'd rather be a little late then release something that doesn't work as intended now that we're exiting preview.

I want to say by the end of this week but since I have appointments in Santa Monica plus a special Beauty and the Beast event to go to just before it opens to the public my schedule is actually rather booked. So I will say soon.

In the meantime, a preview of the AZ:FA 5 logo will be coming and a 4.9.99 update will be released to suppress icons that shouldn't be able to be displayed anymore. It will also contain a little bit more in the way of AZ:FA 5 fixes since it's based on AZ:FA 5 code. You'll also notice the skin identify itself as "Arctic Zephyr: From Ashes 5 (Release Preview)."

I have not used Arctic Zephyr: From Ashes for at least two months. one that was improving was the music OSD. I liked minimalist flip album artwork, it was perfect. I don't know whats happened but now it's lost its minimalist look. as you can see the background artwork is pushed to the top plus I can't disable it in the settings.

Thanks

Hey @Blurayx, sorry for the long wait in response but I was planning things out in regards to this because the Music OSD you posted (both versions) I really do not like whatsoever. And so, if you can hold on for two updates there's a planned Music Update that I talked about above (AZ:FA 5.1) which should take care of Music once and for all by making it a nice experience instead of... well, that.

It would have been in 5.0 but life came up (ER, etc.) so I figured "why not have a Music only update?"

No problem. Thanks for the heads up

Get well soon Smile

I'm running the Northbridge repository build of:
Arctic Zephyr: From Ashes Danvers (Preview) -- v4.9.92-beta10
On Kodi 17.1-RC2

I've searched this post and can't find an answer to the issue I'm having with this skin..

On the home screen, I can't get widgets working unless I use the "Default - Horizontal" menu style.

If I choose any other option, Vertical or Classic, the widgets don't show.

In the other views, instead of the widgets I choose, I get the default list of movies (random order) for both Movies & TV home menu options.

Because each menu style will show this list of random movies, we know the skin supports the media lists. The skin just won't accept the ones I choose.

Is this a known issue or is there something I'm doing wrong?

Thank you in advance!

It's a known issue and if I'm not mistaken, I believe someone posted a fix a few pages back; I just haven't had the time to integrate it into the skin and any such fixes won't appear to 5.0 (you'll see why I mentioned that in a moment).

Arctic Zephyr: From Ashes Danvers (Preview) March Update 1 will be released this weekend. It is a staging update (meaning it's going to reset a few skin settings to fix a few problems that cropped up from the Alpha and Beta releases. It is the last preview update before Arctic Zephyr: From Ashes 5 is released and has the version number of 4.9.99-beta11.

It would have been released today but I'm going to the Beauty and the Beast Opening Night event in Universal City after spending all of yesterday at the ER again.
