Hi mardukL

Just upgraded to the latest version of your skin and noticed that the red icon next to genres when highlighting a movie should have an image in the red icon.  For me all I have is a red dot, no image in the icon.  On screenshots on this page the red icon should have the two face things in it, mine doesn't.
Here are some sample pictures for my update: post 1455

Hi mardukL

Please disregard my previous post, I restarted my device after the update and the problem has resolved itself.  Have to say that I love the changes to the skin.  Only issues I have are below:

1.  In Media library views the logo for movie highlighted seems to position itself to the left.  I am using Netflix landscape mode for my movies.  Is there anyway of centring the movie logo?  For example, Cars 3 logo is a small shape.  It seems to be positioned more to the left of the available space.

2.  When I am in my movies library view, which is Netflix Landscape, and I have highlighted a movie it shows the Rotten Tomatoes score, etc.  When I come out of that library and go into my genres library, which is setup as landscape view, and has folders for my genres, the movie I highlighted previously from my movie library shows the rotten tomatoes score in the footer.

I will try and get screenshots of both queries above.
Not sure if this is the right place to post, I have looked around as best I can but no luck finding any info on the following.

I am a long time TITAN users, from way back in Kodi 15 or 16. Also with SPMC. I use Emby server and with TITAN have been using smart shortcuts to my libraries TV, Movies, Kids TV, and Kids Movies. After the recent update to TITAN MOD I do not have any smart shortcuts and also have no skin helper based backgrounds. My system normally looks like this https://i.imgur.com/i3eStvR.png

Is this a TITAN issue? If not, who looks after the skin helpers that seem to create the smart shortcuts and backgrounds?
"Hide panel background" seems to not change anything anymore. When I go to EPG view, Movies view, TV shows view everything just seems transparent now whereas before it had a solid background unless I change the aforementioned setting.

You have to go to the "skin-setting --> custom color setting" and you choose your color because not all colors are defined
- or you use color theme TitanMod-Ice should be slightly better visible.
- or you have your old color theme setting saved then everything is as you know it.

Did you ever figure out how to remove the side stripe menu icons?

It toggle between default and helveticaneue font style.
difference is not big anymore.

18.4. :
- helvetica - use more linespacing , give 5 rows plot , NOT cyrillic,chinese support

I have made some changes to the OSD display. It was a little more work than I thought.

- positioning reworks better readability even with long texts
  and all texts again within the OSD area

- color gradient now works everywhere (slim-osd and default-osd)

- change of channel pvr now again via osd up and down possible

- "Ends at" and "duration" now available on every OSD display    

- missing pause ad added to some osd ads

- clearart now available everywhere

- netflix-OSD without osd-info "title display" added and clearlogo at PVR

- netflix-orgin episode title display changed (logic error always shows "Next Episode" no matter which one).
  Episode title is now more readable even with longer texts
  (mardukL please look again here if the color change was necessary from me have exchanged primarily with secondary color)

- vertical-osd panel background size adjusted now also fits into the display

I hope I did not forget anything.
Everything changes work very well for me, tested with Win10 and Libereelec (Raspberry Pi 3+).

Here the files for download: 1080i_xml_update_21_11_19.zip

Your update from today is considered.

Thanks, i will try that and surely merge it soon.
THANKS AGAIN.

1.  In Media library views the logo for movie highlighted seems to position itself to the left.  I am using Netflix landscape mode for my movies.  Is there anyway of centring the movie logo?  For example, Cars 3 logo is a small shape.  It seems to be positioned more to the left of the available space.

2.  When I am in my movies library view, which is Netflix Landscape, and I have highlighted a movie it shows the Rotten Tomatoes score, etc.  When I come out of that library and go into my genres library, which is setup as landscape view, and has folders for my genres, the movie I highlighted previously from my movie library shows the rotten tomatoes score in the footer.

I will try and get screenshots of both queries above.

1. i need to revisit, i think i centered the image in a given space, because clearlogo can have different transparent borders.
which leads to 'ugly' layout if i align them left or right.
if i didt do this i will do it ;-)
a little overlay to fanart is wished.

2. i will take a look how to fix. at least i know whats causing it.

I am a long time TITAN users, from way back in Kodi 15 or 16. Also with SPMC. I use Emby server and with TITAN have been using smart shortcuts to my libraries TV, Movies, Kids TV, and Kids Movies. After the recent update to TITAN MOD I do not have any smart shortcuts and also have no skin helper based backgrounds.
My system normally looks like this https://i.imgur.com/i3eStvR.png

Is this a TITAN issue? If not, who looks after the skin helpers that seem to create the smart shortcuts and backgrounds?

'restore shortcut' will be done after update, if you havent them used there before you can define them via 'edit shortcut' setting.

(which rewrite your shortcut settings into the skin xml/1080 folder , called script-skinshortcuts-includes.xml
depending on your machine it could take a bit longer.

doesnt it restore ?

i did a fresh install yesterday and all was fine.

I am a long time TITAN users, from way back in Kodi 15 or 16. Also with SPMC. I use Emby server and with TITAN have been using smart shortcuts to my libraries TV, Movies, Kids TV, and Kids Movies. After the recent update to TITAN MOD I do not have any smart shortcuts and also have no skin helper based backgrounds.
My system normally looks like this https://i.imgur.com/i3eStvR.png

Is this a TITAN issue? If not, who looks after the skin helpers that seem to create the smart shortcuts and backgrounds?

'restore shortcut' will be done after update, if you havent them used there before you can define them via 'edit shortcut' setting.

(which rewrite your shortcut settings into the skin xml/1080 folder , called script-skinshortcuts-includes.xml
depending on your machine it could take a bit longer.

doesnt it restore ?

i did a fresh install yesterday and all was fine. 

I did an upgrade originally, the shortcuts stopped working and did not display art work. I have since deleted the c:\users\username\appdata\roaming\kodi directory and started fresh. Still no smart shortcuts. I notice the file mentioned above is ~250KB in 18.1.13-14, but the 18.1.12 file is ~357KB.

I also noticed the Skin Helper Service Backgrounds supported addon is not in 18.1.13-14 so that would explain why I cannot find the backgrounds I use.

I am on Windows for my testing on Kodi 18.5, with Emby 4.1.16.

Seems pulling the Script.Skin.Helper.Backgrounds-1.0.33.zip from one of my working systems still on 18.1.12 fixed the smart shortcuts and background issues. However, on a Kodi restart the addon was gone and the problem was back.
