I believe the krypton build, hosted by Mikesilvo on GITHUB, to be stable and available for use. Should you have issues with it in Krypton then please post as much info as possible when reporting the issue, screenshots etc. It seems stable for me during all the work / testing to get it ready but I'll try and do my best to resolves issues when I can.
Please note as well that as Krypton is out now I will probably not be doing any more work on the Jarvis version of the skin.

*** Important info on GITHUB ***
Changes to GITHUB:
Master branch for Jarvis - Link Github
Select branch 'Isengard' if still on Isengard.
Alternatively I created a separate GIT for Isengard as well due to not fully understanding branches. That can be found here - Isengard GIT
Krypton development branch can be found here - This is WIP and hopefully will be ready for V17 release.
Please note, this is an uncompressed version with all folders and with the modifications we have done it is over 700mb+ in size. It is mainly designed now for Jarvis, but there are versions for Isengard which we think should still work mostly on Helix as well.
The skin is now considered ready for release and as such this is version 0.9.1 Release Candidate 2. There is still a lot to do before final release but hopefully we'll get there one day.
Please install addon skin.helper.service to get to best from Case backs and MusicFlix.This addon will become a major part of Madnox in the future
CHANGLOG 0.9.0 RC1
Skin Shortcuts included
Mr. V's widgets included
Various other bugs corrected and improvements made.
Here it is, welcome to the newest latest version of Madnox, without the very gracious and selfess acts of Bobcratchett, Mr. V, Mikesilvo, Bsoriano and the Madnox team working together then this would not have been possible. So from Schimi, Meowmoo and I, we thank all those involved very very much for everything you have done for this to be achieved and will be eternally grateful for your work on this. We have done a lot of work to fully integrate Skin Shortcuts and Mr. V Widgets into this Skin
Please note, as this version of Madnox introduces Skin Shortcuts and Mr. V widgets you may find that you will have to rebuild you home menu and submenus again using the new skin shortcuts management options. Schimi has provided tips in following posts to help you with this. The inclusion of Mr. V's widgets means a complete change in what widgets were available and what widgets are now as they are all supplied by various add-ons in Kodi or by Mr. V. Schimi will be adding / updating our tutorials soon to give more help / tips on all the new features in Madnox.
These changes are for the better and allow Madnox a chance of sticking around a bit longer, so please stick with them and you'll find they both greatly improve Madnox and how you use it. We know change is difficult but we believe this change is without doubt for the better for Madnox.
Also, at this time Madnox is Jarvis only, it will not work 100% with Krypton as that version requires even more work which is yet to be fully started. So please note if you use it with Krypton you will probably have problems.
We will attempt to help ASAP with whatever issues / questions you may have with the new version but please be patient with us if you do have either while we look into them.
Again, I can't stress enough our gratitude for the amount of time given up by our guest team members and the work they have achieved. I look forward to working with them again on anything, they just need to us know and we'll do what we can for them.

The idea behind this started out as me simply attempting to learn how to skin and apply my own mods to Shednox, but after a while the amount of mods I'd made meant it was proving difficult to maintain and also offer my mods to Shdenox as work had stopped on Shednox and it was not possible to consider having my mods pulled into Shednox.
So, due to this I made the stupid decision of creating my own mod of Nox, Shednox, whichever is the basis, and as such Madnox was born. Since then schimi2k and I have done extensive work both on the code and graphic sides in the hope of improving the mod.
Also, it was noticed that the latest incarnations of Nox, have been designed to be cleaner, less CPU intensive in their operation. Please note this is not wrong these skins are excellent in their own right and done by some seriously skilled skinners so there work / direction should not be questioned.
But, saying that I felt there was room for the other end of the spectrum i.e. a version of Nox (Shdenox) that offered all the eye candy i.e. posters, disc, logos, clear art etc. etc. but the downfall from this is that this mod will probably require hardware at the high end of the CPU spectrum. I don't know if it would work on devices like Pi's etc. at the lower end of the CPU spectrum.
I don't know the full list but whatever Shdenox required will still be applicable, I'm in the process of attempting to try and remove metadata.actors and moreinfo dependanices.
script.skin.info.service (manual install)
script.extendedinfo (available in the Kodi addon repository)

Sets (movie sets only)
Madnox - Enhancements & FAQ :
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
Fakedisc Art for movies - All views that have discs, and some views that have had disc art added, should now have fakedisc that should work as follows:
1) Fake Disc Art using poster with video resolution outer ring
2) Fake Disc Art handwriting - will use clearlogo if available otherwise will display a disc with handwriting on it.
3) Fake Disc Art handwriting - colored disc. Disc color will be controlled by Video resolution.
Not 100% complete, missing from at least Pause screen at the moment
Fake Disc Art for music.
An addon to manfeed's excellent upgrade and the ability to use cd coverart for cd disc art.
No Floor option:
Removes the floor, should be available skin wide.
Movie, Actor, Director info upgraded to newer extended info versions.
Music Album and Artist info upgraded to newer extended info versions
Numerous other major upgrades and enhancements throughout the skin. I suggest you just explore the mod and all settings areas to find what has been added.
I myself am not a skilled skinner and nowehre near it and probably will never be when compared to some of the skilled skinners we have. Due to this I will simply state that if something is wrong or something breaks then I will attempt to fix it if I can or If I can get help to.
Like any mod, alot of the stuff has been done due to either schimi2k or I thinking they would enhance the skin.
That being said, I will consider any and all requests for changes / improvements to the skin and if we think they are cool or will enhance the skin then I will, again, attempt to do whatever the request is if possible.
I can't do every request as we all know we all want something different within the skin but if I can assign a switch to it then it'll probably get included, again as long as I can code the request, that way you can choose to use the mod or not.
Recently informed an issue in some views with duration. This is my fault as I'd done changes with script.duration installed which gives duration as XhXXm. I will be doing work to check all views without script.duration and update where required. This may mean that should you not install script.duration then you may see overlaps in some views where duration is displayed.
BobCratchett, Mr.V, Mikesivo & bsoriano
schimi2k & meowmoo.
The beta testers for their feeback
Phil65, Hitcher et all for all my noob skinning questions
MikeSilvo, Warner306, mikebz44h etc. etc. etc for their modding.
Full credits in the skin.
Finally,we all hope you like 'Madnox' and enjoy what we have done.
P.S. Please try to keep all questions with regards to Madnox in this thread if possible, It may cause things to get lost but it would be better not to clutter up the 'Aeon Nox' with multiple threads for Madnox. I'll try to keep on top of thing in this thread
