Actually, I am a satisfied Arctic Zephyr user (@jurialmunkey, thanks for a great skin), but new skin ideas that look very good also "inspire" me. I'm looking forward to the beta version of your skin.

Greetings

KODI support is coming along pretty well, still on track to release a dev version within the next 2 weeks ...

Any new news on this skin?


RE: Night Skin - bkury - 2018-01-01

Happy New Year to everyone!

Sorry for the late reply/update on the progress of the skin ...

I run into some problems with the adaptive aspect ratio code in combination with different resolutions / size options, so I decided to rework some of the legacy code. The good news is that this change will also allow the skin to adapt to different resolutions (720p up to 4k) as well as different aspect ratios (16:9, 16:10, 18:9, 21:9) without kodi's upscaling, so you can use "true" 4k backgrounds and possibly higher resolution poster/fanart if available.

I'm going to work on these changes this week and I will try to release a development version as soon as possible.
