I want change some widgets to Poster view but want that widgets from *******stay with fanart view.

You're in luck because that's exactlty what will be available in the next beta version of the skin.
BTW: Never ever mention a banned addon again here on the forums.

Maybe you should explain what you've tried already to accomplish the task ?
With Titan you can create shortcuts to almost everything with the menu/shortcuts editor and this is definitely possible.

1. I've just updated to Kodi 17 & reloaded the Titan skin, and I found the "Library" entry in setting doesn't work, i.e. I can select it, but it doesn't take me to the library settings.This was a clean install of everything, so it shouldn't be a problem with old versions of skin files. There's nothing wrong with the Library because I can access its settings from the default Estuary skin without out a problem and all the things that rely on the library DB work perfectly. Just FYI, my system is built around a shared SQL DB version of the library.

2. Assuming (1) is being caused by an incompatability between Kodi 17 and the version of the Titan skin in the Repo, how do I install the Zip file version, the instructions on the first page of this thread don't seem to make in any sense in the Estuary skin (at least not to me)

No, never ever install the skin manually with the zip file or from my Githgub repo.
Why? Because it depends on specific versions of helper addons etc. Only do so if you know exactly what you're doing and have a very good reason to do so.

Just install the skin from the repo and you're all set. If you want the latest and greatest, install my beta repo. The link is in the first post.
For now, the current release version of the skin for Krypton is a bit outdated so I suggest you to install the beta. This will be updated within a few days.

You probably did not enable the setting in Kodi to scrape additional artist/album info into the music library ?
Try to press info on an item so it refreshes the data and after that the details should be visible.

Note, however, that the updates don't seem to have been pushed to the repo (yet). I just updated the python code manually from your changes on github.

OK, great. I think Í've also published it to the repo in the meanwhile.

Skin settings --> General skin settings --> Align labels on thumbs/tiles in center.

(2017-02-25, 05:51)niksimpson Wrote: There seems to have been some regression in how the skin is picking up cover art for the play bar at the bottom of the screen in music. My system is setup to only use local art and this worked perfectly in Kodi 16, i.e. it was always picked up correctly from the album folder. Now, it seems to be going out on the net and downloading what it thinks is the correct art, but it gets it hopelessly wrong.

1. What version of the skin ? Stable or beta ? version number...
2. What do you mean with "cover art for the play bar at the bottom of the screen" ? Maybe a screenshot better explains what you mean.
3. What do you mean with "hopelessly wrong", this is open source, provide the details so we can make it work better and fix the bugs. Only saying it doesnt work it works hopelessly isn't going to bring you much of attention. Please provide details.
4. It shouldn't grab art/metadata from the net and if it does only if the local art is not found, mistagged or you just have enabled the settings to perform online lookups.

So, in short; please provide me more details so I can assist you in your specific situation.

That's a Kodi setting --> Disable "show parent items"

This will be available in the next beta version of the skin. I've completely restructured the widget layouts so the netflix home now also has all bells and whitstles like the other homescreens.
It will however mean that you'll have to reassign your widgets.

I can't reproduce this issue. What version of the skin ?

Should be fixed in latest version, if not let me know.

True, there are some options in the skin that are really performance hungry, for example the auto widget rotation and offcourse the wall backgrounds.
Those options are all disabled by default offcourse.

The issue with the slow initial loading of the random background images should have been fixed by me last week.
At startup, it should only take 1 or 2 seconds before the images populate but this is all dependant of other addons installed on the system.
Kodi launches them one-by-one at startup and if you have many service addons it can slow down the process..

Test with latest version and let me know. The backgrounds should appear within 1 or 2 seconds, even on less powerfull systems.

OK, think I've found the issue for the spotlight. Next version will have the fix, available later today.
