This screensaver is configured for every skin separately since it has to use Fonts defined by the skin!

Skin developers have an option to use script-screensaver-digitalclock-custom.xml in their skins 1080i,720p... folder.
They should provide and maintain that xml file with their skin!
Screensaver will check for skin folders in this order: 1080i,720p, 21x9 16x9, 4x3Hirez.
If no script-screensaver-digitalclock-custom.xml is found screensaver will look for an appropriate xml file within screensavers folder.
If there is no appropriate xml file it will use skin.default.xml

List of supported skins (If the skin is in the official repository it will be supported):
Adonic
Aeon Nox 5
Aeon MQ5
Aeon MQ6
Amber
AppTV
Arctic: Zephyr
Bello 6
Black Glass Nova
Box
Chroma
Confluence
Eminence.2
Estouchy
Estuary
(Fuse)neue
Metropolis
Mimic
Nebula
Omni
OSMC
Pellucid
Phenomenal
Rapier
Retouched
Revolve
Titan (Default testing skin!)
Transparency
Unity
Xperience1080

If your skin is not on the list, and you would like it to be - send me a message.

I have tested this screensaver with a couple of languages and on two systems, windows 7 laptop and Raspberry Pi 2 running OSMC.

(Screenshot would be great including which language you are using and how many letters are supposed to be on the screen).
Everything else should work just fine, let me know if you encounter any bugs or issues.

Cool! Nice work so far.

I didn't know how to install it so I just grabbed the source from Github, unzipped into .kodi\addons\screensaver.digitalclock, rebooted and it worked. Hope I did that correctly.

Is there any way to:

1. Make the clock move smoothly around the screen instead of jumping from spot to spot.

2. Show what's playing in addition to the time if you happen to be playing music, a radio stream, etc.

Hi UberNewf, I'm glad you like it.

Yes that is the correct way, I haven't sent it to the Kodi official repository yet, I'm waiting for some skins to update and then it'll be easier to install - directly from Kodi.

1. I made it like that, but didn't like how it looked. To me it felt a bit "jerky" to be honest, I tested it on my laptop with Intel i5 CPU and on my Raspberry Pi 2.
I removed that feature since I wasn't satisfied with it.
To be able to make it feel more fluid I would have to increase CPU load and that was something I wanted to avoid.

2.That can be done, although as far as I know Kodi uses Dim screensaver when movies/tv shows are playing even if you selected some other screensaver.
I'm not sure what happens with music and radio.
Where should this text be?

For # 2 I was suggesting showing the name of the current track if you're playing music\radio (not TV\Movie). There is a setting under screen saver to play the selected SSaver instead of a visualization when in music, and I use that instead of viz's because I'm on a Pi2. So maybe under the date you could put the track\song title (and the image, if you want to get fancy).

Unfortunately since screensavers can't define their own fonts adding stuff is pretty complicated (on top of other stuff).
I'm not to keen on the image, but I'll take a look at the track\artist\song title and I'll let you know if I can do it.

Hi UberNewf, I've updated the scrrensaver, now it shows whatever gets played in Kodi.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Download the zip again and replace all the files.

Hi vdb86, I'm in love with this screensaver. I was wondering:
- is it possible to have the clock stay in one position?
- increase the font size of the time?
- this may be asking too much - is it possible to show the weather/temp alongside with the time?

Many thanks for your amazing work!

Hi lady0421, glad you like it.

1) I made the clock move so it doesn't "burn in" into your screen, so there is no option to keep it in one place.
Any static image can literally screw up pixels on your monitor or tv, so after you change it you see a "ghost image" of the previous one.

2) At this point Kodi doesn't allow addons to use their own fonts, therefore I have to rely on skins to provide fonts and font sizes which I later use.
I had to setup the screensaver for every skin separately, and test it so it works as it should.
Until addons can define their own fonts there won't be an option to increase or decrease certain aspects of this screensaver.

3)It is possible, but I'll have to take a look and see how complicated it is to implement it.
It would probably use the same line as the now playing information, since I don't plan on adding any more lines of text
I'll let you know when I figure it out.

I've added the option for weather, it's not added to the official repository yet, but you can get it from the github and test it out.

You are a legend! It worked amazingly well. I love it, thank you!!

Small request - do you think you can draw the icon of the weather forecast, like, when it's sunny, it has the sunny - it looks a lot cuter with the icon! It's not that important, really, with or without it, I'm not changing my screensaver for a long long time!

Sorry lady0421, but this screensaver is text based (except for the image slideshow).
At the same time putting in graphics based on weather condition would be pretty complicated.

Glad you like it, enjoy Smile

Ok, got the idea now.
Add-ons can't define their own fonts, so that's the first no.
Second of all I don't like the idea of having seconds on the screen too, it feels too crowded.
Sorry Jönke
