Thanks for the report.

Have you installed directly using the master branch from Github? That would be the reason for those icons appearing. You need to install as the first post describes. You can download using this link.

Many dialogs have changed with Kodi 17. I will look at that one right away.

Cheers
Gade

Installing from Github have probably messed the textures up. You need to manually delete the skin.rapier folder and install again from zip.

To fix the content settings dialog, you can manually download this xml file and place it in skin.rapier/720p folder. Replace the existing one.

You also need the updated english language file.
Download this file and replace the existing one in skin.rapier/language/English.

Then the content settings dialog should work correctly.

Note that the looks of the dialog has changed.

The textures have not changed at all and all views looks the same, so you must have done something wrong.

Which nightly do you use? I noticed some images issues with some of the recent ones.
I use: KodiSetup-20160213-637ba39-master

I did exactly as you said Gade.....the version I'm using is ......KodiSetup-20160214-221b1a8-master ,Could you check this version on your setup and see if it breaks your skin.....if not then its weird...because I did delete the old skin and installed it again and replaced the xml plus language file......So it should work right?

I did test your version and it worked so I can confirm it is the version I was using that was breaking your skin...

Seams like all the latest Kodi Nightly builds break your skin, Tried the two latest today and they both broke your skin like that version I did use before ,and the only one working is still the version you told me you used so I'm thinking they have changed something with the new builds in Skin settings....Because I had no problem when I used nightly versions in Kodi Jarvis but in Krypton something seam to have changed ...Maybe you could look into this and fix the skin so it can be updated with nightly for Krypton as Jarvis did.....Just wanted to notise this so you know that newer Nightly Versions break your skin......
Have a great Weekend Smile

I just pushed update 9.9.3 which fixes the texture issues.

Seems there was an update for Krypton to the texture packer tool used to create the compressed texture files.
