8.8.15 FOR KODI 15 ISENGARD
24-JANUARY-2017
 
Available through the official Kodi repository!



Now that Kodi 17 Krypton final version is released, Rapier for Kodi 15 Isengard is deprecated!
If you haven't done so already, I highly recommend updating to Kodi 16 Jarvis, Kodi 17 Krypton or Kodi 18 Leia nightlies, as the new features are incredible! Smile




The first post will always be updated with the latest information and changelog.
If you have any problems or find any bugs, please let me know right away.
Also, if you have features, ideas, designs etc. you would like added, I'll be more than happy to help.


You can always follow latest development, download uncompressed textures etc. on Github.

You can manually install my repository to automatically receive the newest development updates. You will still receive the official updates.

You can find a detailed guide to Rapier's skin settings at the wiki.

Note that these updates of Rapier are for the latest Isengard nightlies, so if something isn't working properly, this most likely is the cause.

Very nice Smile thank you.

Finally got Isengard installed and could try out the new Rapier. (It was quite the ordeal to get Isengard working.)

Rapier is working great with new Kodi. Really like the ability to hide the options bar when not in use. Also finally saw the option for conditional weather artwork. I don't use the weather screen all that much, but the conditional art is neat to have when I do.

The only little issue I've seen is that I don't have the "Manage..." option in the context menu when selecting a tv show. I needed to remove a couple of shows from the database in order to rescan them and had to go into Confluence to do it. I've seen that happen in previous versions too, so it is probably something with my set up. Not a big deal though to switch over as I don't need that option very often.

Can't wait to see what you do with Phil's extendedinfo script. Will be nice to have access to actor biography and filmography while watching the movie they're in.

Hi Thales.

Glad you decided to try out Isengard, and that Rapier is running smoothly.

The "Manage" button is not visible as long as Kodi is scanning your libraries for new content. As long as that is finished, the "Manage" button will appear again. This should be the same for Rapier, Confluence and all other skins.

The extended info script didn't make it into the latest update, but will probably be included in the next Smile
