Sorry maybe I misunderstood, did you already implement the change involving the poster being displayed when paused?
Or is this coming in an update?

Hi Steve. Thanks, hope the same for you! Smile

It's added from next update.

Already pushed to Github though, so I guess you could copy the contents of the 720p folder of the Isengard branch to your skin.rapier/720p folder.

Thanks, i hope you had the same Smile

Hmm... I don't understand, as that should absolutely do it.

Can you explain in detail what you did? Did you reload the skin / restart Kodi after you replaced the file?

Hi Gade .

Yea i made a video showing exactly what i did hope it helps

Info

Cheers

Hi wheelzi31.

It looks correct with the video, although I didn't see you pasting the new file and overwriting the old one?

That should absolutely make it work.

I used ctrl c and v lol. I'm not sure. Sorry

TESTERS NEEDED!

I just pushed v8.6.0 to my development repo.

NOTE: This update will reset ALL custom category backgrounds.

I really appreciate any feedback on:
  • New custom category fanart backgrounds. Skin Settings > Home > Category Menu > Add More Categories / 2 / 3 / 4 > Background (at the bottom).
  • All home screen widgets. Some of them have been largely rewritten, increasing speed and load times and fixing bugs. Recently added movies and episodes widgets only shows unwatched items.

Cheers
Gade

I want to say that I love your work. I'm fairly new to Kodi, and have already tried several builds and skins. To me, Rapier is top notch. I just have one request, if you will. You give the options to have onscreen shortcuts used on the movies category as well as a few others. Would it be possible to make it so that option is available on all categories to include custom added?

Hi Danny and welcome to the forums.

Thanks a lot for the kind words Smile

It's a very good idea and it's already on my very long to-do-list. The thing is that it requires a ton of work and coding. So it will probably get done at some point, but it will not be right away.

Cheers
Gade

Not sure if related but tonight I noticed my "in progress" widget on TV Shows isn't updating / refreshing. It was all good 3 days ago (been away all weekend). Before when an episode finished and we return to the main screen the widget would flash slightly and refresh, now - it highlights the episode name blue for a second and does nothing - strange

Can I upload a log to help or is this a known bug?

not sure if you are still supporting it but i have an android box stuck on helix and when using this skin some of the dialog boxes like error messages do no display correctly

Hi Halwende and welcome to the forums.

That widget was updated to support more features and faster load times. It now uses a different script than before.

It works as expected on all my platforms. Does it still not get updated?

I use the code provided for the add-on, so maybe this is something to ask in the add-on thread Smile

Hi kholdstare.

This thread is for Rapier 8.x / Kodi 15 Isengard.

Which version of Rapier do you use with which version of Kodi?

Rapier 14.x for Helix has just had its final update and will no longer be supported.

I just saw that the script.skin.helper.service had a recent update to fix widgets not updating. Can you confirm that it now works?

You can check to see if you have script.skin.helper.service version 1.0.43 on your system.
