Arctic Zephyr: From Ashes feels like a big mystery for me right now, and I hope you can help clear things up.

First of all, I have been trying to acces your homepage for what feels like years, but I never actually been able to get anything else than "Error - Bad gateway" up from northebridge.com. Is something wrong on my end? I feel like that homepage has been advertised for so long time, that I must be missing something?

Secondly, I have been running your KODI 16 version for a long time, and it is mostly perfect. I am still a bit on the fence about updating to KODI 17, because SPMC is still not there yet. But it seems like you have made it really difficult to grab the KODI 16 versions now. Are you purposely trying to hold off people from using the KODI 16 release for a reason?

Third, it is extremely confusing with all the titles. I am really confused why for example Arctic Zephyr: For Another Age is mentioned, when no information on it is available? I find myself searching around google and youtube to find something about your releases, only to finally find out it maybe doesn't exist yet?

Finally.. I must admit, I think I am definitely missing something on the newest Danvers. It doesn't look like the screenshots here in the thread on my systems, and it doesn't look anything like the Jarvis release?
Is the menu really supposed to look like this? Or is something completely messed up here?

Yep, that's the settings menu. Dreadful isn't it?
Looks like development has stalled/stopped/vanished.
Granted, he's under no obligation to continue anything.
It would be better to simply move on.
I'm currently using Eminence mod, development seems to be far more active.
Although I'm waiting for updates on Bit(ten) and Aeon (see the WIP section)
I actually really thought it was a bug in my version or something, but yeah, I find it dreadful. But I guess it is a matter of taste, cannot really question what other people like.
And sure, the devs have no obligations, so they are free to leave it whenever and however they want. I just always had the feeling that something is about to happen on this skin. And boy, did I like the KODI 16 version..

But I guess I am moving on then. I looked into your suggestion, thanks a lot for them. However none of them unfortunately really fall into my taste. For whatever reason I find all three of them pretty hard on the eyes. I guess I am very picky. I will probably go with Arctic Zephyr+ for now.

Development of From Ashes had been/was put on hold for a variety of reasons one of which was CO2 poisoning. Recent months had me busy but we should be getting development back on track for the summer (and by for the summer I mean May).

It was almost canceled but the Kodi 17 version just can't be left as a disaster (at least, that's how I view it right now because it was never finished) and let's just say this project got a second wind.

For those of you getting bad gateway errors on the repo or anywhere else, that should be resolved fairly soon. A lot of services are being shuffled around between DC and Orlando so once that settles down no more bad gateway errors.

In other words: "excuse our mess while we tidy up." And: we're back.

Okay everyone, I'm going to make this a little short as it's still up in the air. The future of From Ashes will be posted this weekend. The Kodi 16 version of From Ashes I hear can't be downloaded so I will fix that. If you're running From Ashes 4 (Kodi Krypton) well... in private messaging I've been calling it a complete disaster to some that really formulated due to trying to remove Exploded's problematic code and updating the skin to Krypton at the same time.

The point is, probably by the time this weekend is out, a big reset button is going to be pushed.

Also, the older From Ashes for Kodi 16 will be made available in any repository it may have been removed from while we fix the mess.

Basically: check back this weekend.

Widgets have been an issue. I am assuming you are on Kodi 17? Right now widgets aren't currently functioning right which I do apologize for.

I am currently working behind the scenes on the foundation of the next generation From Ashes - one that's done properly and not the version people have now (I feel like I should publicly apologize for releasing the 4.x series).

@minus0 is returning and I am working with @jurialmunkey on some alignment permissions. The official update on the next generation AZ:FA to support Kodi 17 will be coming in the next few days. What I do know is that we will use a new branch - the "Caitlin Snow branch" under Arctic Zephyr: For Another Age. We will focus 100% on Kodi 17 and move to Kodi 18 development when we're ready and not just shove something out the door like we did originally with Kodi 17 and the reason I feel like I should publicly apologize for From Ashes on Kodi 17 as it's not representative in any way of the quality that the From Ashes Project should have released.

Please post your questions and concerns here and I will try to answer them the best I can on the new direction to fix our mistakes.

Updates to Kodi 16's From Ashes and the current Kodi 17 From Ashes will be released hopefully this week explaining what will be happening next. Don't worry, the prompt will be something you can turn off on the first run.

Again, I do sincerely apologize for the current From Ashes 4.x released for Kodi 17 and hope we can restore your faith in the Arctic Zephyr: Exploded and Arctic Zephyr: From Ashes formula. We will also be naturally incorporating Arctic Zephyr: Braz which was something we got permission to do before in the new direction.

Hi guys,

I cant seem to get view options to stick. I can set the option in any given menu to, say, wall, or big list, or tiles, etc. but as soon as I exit the menu and go back in, the view has reverted to the default list option. Any help at all is appreciated. Thanks

Hey Guardian Hope

Just wanted to say that I really love your skin! (Kodi 17.1 with Libreelec, Raspi 3, setup to look like the Netflix interface). Many thanks for your efforts!

Help please

Setting up kodi using this Skin.
Loaded TV shows up to my library and customising the main menu now.
Just setting up Widgets and no matter what I press it says getting directory listing ..... and nothing. Load bar on screen has hardly moved and it's like this for 10 minutes now.

Kodi 17.1 clean installation this evening.

P.s. just clicked on cancel and it's cancelling.... but that looks like it's stuck too. Nothing is responsive at all
