1.08 Changelog

Spotlight

ImageImage
  • New brighter spotlight widget diffuse.
  • Spotlight Widget now hides plot on idle (with a slide animation)
 
  • New metadata sublabel on spotlight widget (and on home & Bingie views)  Spotlight sublabel now includes top 250 on IMDB and Director metadata (Director metadata is only displays on films and only for spotlight, not bingie views).  Can be disabled via (Settings>Homescreen Layout>Details Options).

Menu

Image
  • New menu icons for sideblade and slim menu. Increased sideblade menu width to allow for longer labels (had to alter the submenu position for this to work so it sticks out further than usual.
  • General tidy up of sideblade menu and slim menu/indicator.
  •  
  • Menu now displays a max of 6 short cuts/hubs at any time, so you can have as many as you like without affecting the look of the menu.
 
Details Row

Image
 
  • New Option fake resolution codec.  If enabled and if your resolution and audio metadata is missing, a fake “Ultra HD 4K” flag will appear.
  • New Option for displaying TV show status (ended, cancelled or continuing)
  • New option for Audio Codecs to display only the Atmos metadata (like Netflix) providing you have the existing metadata and when Audio Codecs are enabled.
  • Removed all other audio codec logos. It’s only text & flagbox now for non ATMOS audio Codecs
  •  Added TVDB rating to the IMDB/RT details row option (RT for films, TVDB for shows)
  • General details row tidy up
 
OSD
  • Added the option to switch between  either ClearLogo or ClearArt when OSD is paused.

  • Added option to remove the discart from OSD Infopanel

Other changes
  • New Circular Navigation option – Removed access to the old version. New option keeps the same layout as noncircular navigation. Sideblade Menu access is on Back command only.  We will hopefully implement menu access from position 0 On Left in the next update.  Option found via (Settings>Homescreen Layout>Widgets).

  • Fixed bug with widget focus position changing when more than 28+ widgets are loaded.

Can you please tell me more specifically what this does now? Or what issue it made before that is fixed with this update?


RE: Titan BINGIE MOD v1 (UPDATED - 07/24/2020) - mathu204 - 2020-11-02

Hello, first of all; great skin thank you and everyone involved in this and the previous iterations of this skin for working on this and making this beautiful skin. With that out of the way i am about to bombard you with some questions sorry, I really hope you or someone can help answer most of them. Again, thank you for this great skin, I just switched over from Auramod to just play around and test but I still need to figure out the nooks and crannies of this skin.

Anyways here is an imgur link for reference for my questions https://imgur.com/a/tynG1dT

Image 1: The White box around the poster is not placed correctly not sure why this happened it came when i set up the skin from the beginning and I have not been able to fix it since.

Images 2 and 3: I am trying to get the Season and Episode view to show up as the one in "The Flash" from your example in the pinned post where on the left it shows seasons one through 6, and on the right it is the bingie episode view. I achieved this in Auramod, however here I cannot; enabling the bingie episode view on season level leads to Image 2 where it shows the Seasons as episodes, and Image 3 enabling it in Episode list is how it should look, except it is only for that specific season, I would like to make it show the other seasons below and above the season im in on the left.

Image 4: When I go into one of my video sources, it feels like the skin does not use all the space available like there is a black indent at the bottom and at the top, is this how it is by design? If so then alright.

Last Question: when i watched this video the resolution and posters look bigger im not sure if this is just me being dumb or not, but i feel the resolution in my build doesnt look as clean and is not as big as i want it to, again not sure if this is by design, or im just incorrect and they are the same, or there are settings to change poster/landscape picture sizes.

It was mainly under-the-hood changes to be able to make small adjustments to episode number & title and progress bar without them affecting each other (remember the disappearing progress bar?).

Then I was able to make small cosmetic changes so things are less cramped.

Before vs After
ImageImage

Previously, the episode title was actually slightly overlapping the progress bar.

After cleaning up the code a bit I also made a comment in the xml should you wish to remove the episode title completely to only display the episode number to gives it a cleaner appearance (which is how is mine is set up).
Image

You can find the comment in includeshomebingie.xml here:

<!--episode title/episode no. -->
                        <control type="textbox">
                        <top>-10</top>
                            <height min="0" max="70">40</height> <!--set to auto for episode title, set to 40 for just episode.-->
                            <width>650</width>
                            <align>left</align>
                            <aligny>center</aligny>
                            <font>Reg26</font> 
                            <textcolor>darkgray</textcolor>
                            <label>$VAR[BingieEpisodeInfoSubLabel]</label>
                        </control>

@HugoL  In Bingie episode view , it took long time to reflect all seasons on left side of the screen , some time it doesn't show remaining seasons , then all I do , scroll all episode down to reach desire season. Kindly help it out why it appears late some time 25 second .

I'm really liking what you did to the font. Is this just a text shadow or did you alter the font in any other way because it looks a lot lighter (less bold) than standard.

Also, it would good to align the details and plot height so they start at the same height:

And then have everything including the footers fit neatly in this area

Great! Indeed, this is even more neat than what I have thought. Will definitely change my settings into this! Thanks.

Btw, can you take a screenshot of the new look of the latest infopanel diffuse? I'd like to see the difference.

Probably a performance issue. 

Follow this guide here (under Optimisation/performance)

In particular-
1. keep your View Types to a bare minimum.  I've disabled all of mine apart from the following:

2. Delete Your thumbnails cache and let Kodi rebuild it  (takes a while!)
3. Make sure you're not somehow pulling high res episode thumbs.

I never use it but since Achilles was doing some work on it, I thought I'd make the text clearer.

Nice! This is the diffuse for infopanel that I wanted, the plot is much more readable. Can you point me which xml is this?

I don't understand why you need it.  It's already there, in 1.08.

Yes I had to edit xml for the back panel. I can fix details, plot height this Wednesday.
That's a good idea with the footer. I'll take care of that as well.
I had to add the code for fanart in the background because it was just a black screen

Hi, I have one question. Does this skin support elementum addon? I can't get all information, clear logos, ratings... Half things are missing. I inserted api of tmdb, fanart.tv, elementum sync with trakt, I installed artwork beef... With auramod all works perfect.


RE: Titan BINGIE MOD v1 (UPDATED - 07/24/2020) - DarrenHill - 2020-11-02

@matke - Elementum and similar addons are banned addons (wiki) here as they violate our piracy policy (wiki).

So before asking any further questions, I would suggest you actually go and read the forum rules (wiki) that you accepted and agreed to abide by when you signed up here. Otherwise you may get yourself into trouble here and find your stay terminated.
