Hi all,

thought someone might enjoy my estuary tweaks.

It's still estuary (kodi v18 leia up to v18.7 is still working) but with a few changes.

Home screen
The home screen displays more info/options.  I added a few on/off options in settings for adding "action" , "comedy", "SCIFI" lists to the home screen. Also changed the panel view in favor of a fixed list option, this means the selected movie is always on the left of the screen ie focus doesn't move left to right instead the list moves behind it.

Also added a disappearing movie description panel to the home screen, so as you select different movies/tv shows it displays the genre and description to the left of the movie.

TV shows recently added list has also been changed to only show that there are new episodes for a particular show, so if you add multiple episodes you will only have one item on the list instead of many, IMHO its a lot less messy than standard estuary.


Keyboard
The keyboard has changed to allow scrolling left to right, top to bottom etc without jumping to odd locations and a few other bits and pieces.

I have tried to set it up so you have more movies you can select and play straight from the home screen.

I don't have much time to mess with it, so it will probably stay how it is.  But let me know what you think though.

I would add pics but its a PITA.
Hi, a tip regarding pics: imgur.com/upload is fast & easy to use for some pics.
You're right Raitsa, damn quick, cheers

see attach pics. 

Note: the new button near the settings button, it is an update library. For those that don't want to update library, keep clear.

As I stated on GitHub I modded the settings.xml (not Settings.xml) and I don't know where to put it so it will load with the skin any help on this would be fantastic. 


from GitHub
"BTW

I modified the settings.xml to allow the on/off buttons in the skin config settings, but I don't know how/where to put it so it is installed when installing from my zip file. So...I have added it to the root directory in the "--SETTING FILE--" folder. This needs to be placed in the "userdata/addon_data/skin.estuary.byfog" folder. I can't find any info on how to do this properly so any help would be great."
