[RELEASE] Rapier 9.6.3 for Kodi 16 Jarvis
#46
TESTERS NEEDED!

I just pushed v9.3.0 to my development repo.

NOTE: This update will reset ALL custom category backgrounds.

I really appreciate any feedback on:
  • New custom category fanart backgrounds. Skin Settings > Home > Category Menu > Add More Categories / 2 / 3 / 4 > Background (at the bottom).
  • All home screen widgets. They have been largely rewritten, increasing speed and load times and fixing bugs. The add-on service.skin.widgets is not needed anymore, and can be safely uninstalled. Random / Featured widgets will now update every time you enter the home screen. Recently added movies and episodes widgets only shows unwatched items.

Cheers
Gade

Sorry, it's not possible to show fanart from playlists as backgrounds the same way you can for random, recent, in progress and unwatched fanart backgrounds.

Widgets are possible to show from playlists with items only from the playlists.

Hi Gade,

I've installed your skin a few days ago in the openelec OS with Jarvis and I'm very pleased. The skin is fantastic.

I just find an issue in my enviroment. In the library, the movie information don't show up the movie Poster when my usb HDD is not plugged in.

However, I've tried to edit the DialogVideoInfo.xml and change the following tags:

<texture>$VAR[PosterThumb]</texture> -> <texture background="true">$VAR[PosterThumb]</texture>

This workaround works for me and now I can see all the posters.

Thanx for your amazing work. Please keep going Smile

Hi pmartires and welcome to the forums.

Thanks a lot for the kind words - I really appreciate it Smile

Good idea, I added the code to DialogVideoInfo.xml and it will be available in the next development and official update.

Thanks for reporting the issue Wink

Hi Gade,

Thanks for you reply Smile

More two questions/resquest:

- It is possible to add a "SHOW YEAR" option (similar to SHOW RATING) in the VIEW OPTIONS for the THUMBNAIL VIEW ? This is useful when the library is sorted by year and we scroll the thumbnails as we can only see one digit/letter in the left top corner. With this option we could see the complete year in the bottom of the screen instead of the rating/genre.

- Can we have a option to choose different movie information layout ?

I've done some minor changes in the layout as you can see in the screenshot bellow, and I think it would be interesting if we could switch between multiple movie information layout.

Thanks

Hi pmartires.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Sure, good idea. I'll add the view option, which will be available for movies, tv shows and seasons from next development and official release.

I actually didn't realize the other issue with the sort letter notification in the top. I'll see how I can fix it.

I appreciate the suggestion and mods are always welcomed.

But sorry, I like the current layout better.

It can take some time for the updates to hit the repo.

Where did you download the zip file you are trying to install?

I love the updates for the skin.

How can I get the "In cinemas" widget to show a list of movies instead of what it shows now?

Hi nohitter151.

Thanks for the kind words Smile

The add-on calls for those widgets have changed with the new version of script.extendedinfo.

I will fix this as soon as possible and push an update to the official and development repository.

To get this update fastest, your best choice is probably to install my development repository, as I most likely will push this update later tonight.

I am having problems with this also. Tried from repository, download zip file, and also tried 9.3 from your repository and get dependencies not met.

I am running 16.0 on fire tv.

I am also getting same error with other skins so I wiped everything and tried from scratch, no joy.

Hi c_tripps_2k.

That's strange. If you have this error with all skins, it's most likely not a skin related issue, but a problem with the add-on repository.

Which version do you currently run and which version are you trying to update to?

Which zip file did you download?

I downloaded zip from link in the thread.

http://mirrors.kodi.tv/addons/jarvis/ski...-9.4.0.zip

Also, I have fresh install of kodi, 16.0 so rapier hasn't been installed yet.

I suspect a plugin that is common to a number of skins is either missing, out of date, or not available.
