The busy dialog should already be hidden when using CinemaVision.

Which version of Kodi, Rapier and CinemaVision do you use?

You are writing in the thread for Rapier for Kodi Helix. Rapier 8.3.7 is for Isengard (maybe you used Rapier 7.x before the update?).

But no worries - I need a screenshot to see what you mean.

Rapier doesn't have a busy dialog in the lower right corner, so something must be wrong.

Great to hear that it's working.

Out of curiousity, what did you change?

As to your other question, I would ask in the CinemaVision thread.

I just pushed a development update to my repo.

This update requires script.skin.helper.service and should automatically install version 1.0.0 from the Kodi add-on repo.

For all new features in Rapier version 1.0.9 is needed. I recommend downloading this version directly from Github and installing manually from zip inside Kodi.

I appreciate any feedback.

UPDATE: Rapier 7.8.1 is available through the official Kodi repository!

This update is installed automatically.
If this is not the case, you can download it here.


As we are getting closer to the release of Kodi 16 Jarvis, this marks one of the final releases for Kodi 14 Helix.
If you haven't done so already, I strongly encourage you to update to Kodi 15 Isengard or Kodi 16 Jarvis beta!



Fanart backgrounds have been updated with more options (random, recent, in progress and unwatched) and fanart backgrounds have been added for PVR.
A new section has been added to the skin settings: Supported Add-ons. Here you can see the add-ons from the official Kodi add-on repository supported by the skin, and you can download/install or configure all.

The following add-ons are not needed anymore and can be uninstalled:
  • script.toolbox
  • script.grab.fanart
  • script.skin.info.service

Support has been added for the add-on script.skin.helper service instead (should be automatically installed).


CHANGELOG
Code:
7.8.1 (18-December-15)

Hi the Lost Alien.

Thanks so much for all the kind words and support.

Note that you are writing in the thread for Kodi 14 Helix.
Rapier is currently only developed and maintained for Kodi 16 Jarvis, Kodi 17 Krypton and Kodi 18 Leia.

Some time ago I optimized performance and removed some things from the skin.
Based on the poll in the top of this thread, where it only has 1 vote, I asked in all release threads if anyone used the wide list views.
And I only got responses to remove it - so I did.

If the demand is high enough, I'll reconsider.
Does anyone else miss this view?
