Hi all,

I've created a modified version of this awesome skin.
It's based off of version 4.5.5.

Changes from the original skin:
  1. Support for 3rd-party: Skin Widgets, Next Aired, Artwork Downloader & more
  2. Improvements in customization options
  3. The Skin Settings interface follows the system settings' layout and design
  4. Various tweaks, check changelog.txt for complete list

Install my repo from there, if doesn't work (let me know! and then- ) download the skin directly from here or here.

Feedback is welcome of course!

Thanks, that means a lot coming from the creator of the base skin Smile

Sorry to say what it's not tested on Kodi 14 Helix...

For now, I haven't received much feedback on this mod, so I don't see a reason to start testing.
If more people show interest I will consider a full code review.

(welcome to fork on github and create pull requests, of course!)
Longtime user of Quarts (especially like the recently added movies list).

I moved to Kodi and although it works I assume there are some updates that are needed.

Would love to have Quartz Kodi compatible as well (iOS)
this looks wonderful, especially the shelf items themes for tv shows! I do have a request... can you make it Kodi compatible? (installing from the zip from your github page gave me a "dependencies not met" error)

Thank you! The TV items themes was the initial reason I started modding in the first place... I'm glad you like it Smile

This skin requires only two add-ons: Favourites and Skin Widgets. Make sure you have those installed.
I suspect that when installing from a zip (rather than from an online repo), Kodi doesn't try to auto-install dependencies.

From the wiki:
Quote:When a user installs your add-on from an online repository via XBMC's add-on manager, XBMC attempts to resolve these dependencies, and install anything that your add-on relies on first

In case there is more support and demand for v14 support, I will try to find the time to do a complete overhaul.
Unfortunately, on Kodi, even with the two dependencies installed, it won't install from the zip. I would love it if you can try to make a Kodi compatible version, but I understand the work that goes into that..
@mediumdry,

Could you possibly paste your log file? I might get a better idea of what's going on when the installation fails.

I just turned on debug logging and on looking in the log, the only relevant lines are these:
Code:

Is xbmc.gui version 5.0.1 related to Gotham?

Looking at the code for xbmc.gui addon:
https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master.../addon.xml

I can see there's backwards compatibility only until 5.3.0
Since I'm requiring 5.0.1, that causes the failed install.

I will have to look into this myself in greater depth to check for other errors.

In the meantime, you're welcome to experiment a little and help with testing...
Here's a link to a test addon, after changing the xbmc.gui requirement to 5.3.0. Let me know how it works!
That works indeed, although the end result is interesting, text seems to have shifted, as well as the expected on screen keyboard issues:

@EtgarDizz, any chance you're going to look into Kodi/Helix support?
