Sorry, can’t find your skin anywhere in the official Kodi repo nor cannot be downloaded from the system skin section… 🤷🏻‍♂️

The 2x7 Wall View of Confluence Zeitgeist has in fact larger poster+album artwork than Original Confluence 2x5 Wall View.

Maybe you were mislead because you personally like a Wall View with fewer items (2x5=10) and more space between the artwork(?) As said, the artwork itself is in fact smaller in the old 2x5 view.

I made the unified Wall Views like they are on purpose because they fit the visual and usability intentions of this skin.
2x7 is the "direct" replacement for the old 2x5 (visually + technically speaking).

TBH it's unlikely at this point that i can add _another_ 2x5 Wall View option and because of all the extra time needed + unnecessary maintenance work it would bring for the future.

If it would be a quick 1-line code change, i'd have been willing to add an experimental option only for you to replace 2x7 with old school 2x5, but unfortunately that's not feasible in regards to the existing code.



Another idea/possible solution - maybe that's something for you - if you feel that a 2x7 Wall is a bit too "crowded" for your liking - and you like a more "spacey" 2x5=10 items view more:

In the main skin version (KODI 17) there is a new modern Artwork View with only+exactly 10 movie posters visible at once.
(! The View will be ported to the KODI 18+ skin versions at a later time):
Thanks for your reply and interest.
I asked why the 2 x 7 view is too crowded for me, I will try to see the modern Artwork View in kodi 17. many thanks

Just one question, why do you keep working and supporting kodi 17 skins which is very old? please focus your work on kodi 19 skins, because kodi 20 will be out soon, and if you keep supporting kodi 17, you will always be behind and have a lot of work to do.
(at most kodi 18, but kodi 17 is really old, I don't know how many still use it, I understand that many addons are not compatible with new versions of kodi, but 17 is too old in my opinion).

Don't get me wrong, I don't want you to do that, my English is bad, I just reported one of my thoughts...


Thank you so much for everything you do 🙏

@alberto1998 

Well - regarding your question. I commented on that some time ago:

I don't use Kodi v19 or v20 on any system and probably won't anytime soon. (since it does not offer what i need)

I use KodiDS v17  with madVR for high quality hdr2sdr tonmapping on a system thats configured like a "out of the box"-retail device without the risk of breakage due to crazy addons or upgrading.

Therefore i will work mainly on the version i can use on my own systems - and that's 17! :-)
Forgive me, I didn't know about this.

ok, i hope you will implement and support future versions anyway, thanks for what you do 🙏
