Try for the 3840 x 1600 resolution changing to

default="true"

then change 1920 x 1080 to

default="false"

however if all else fails try deleting all those res width lines apart from the 3840 x 1600 line you added.

Changing the Default Flag in the File didn't work.
I then put the 3840x1600 resolution to the first position in the list, but this didn't work either.
After that I deleted all lines apart from the 3840x1600 line, and than it worked.

Now the Skin is scaling correct, but as long as other resolutions are in the file, it won't.

That suggests to me the set resolution of your pc isn't being detected as 3840 x 1600

If I go to System Information, the resolution is shown correct as 3840x1600

I noticed on more problem with the edited file.
The skin is now scaling corretly, but video playback is not scaling proper anymore.
Now the video playback is streched horizontally.

Not sure then maybe it's something to do with that not being a true 21:9 resolution see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphics_d....971600.29

same experience here, in order for a custom aspect ratio to work it has to be the only entry in the addon.xml file, adding the new aspect ratio as an additional line, or positioning the new aspect ratio at the top, bottom or middle of the list has no effect...

on a side note, i'm finding that playing around with the dsplayer's osd settings (move osd into active video area / define visible screen area) in combination with custom resolutions in the addon.xml file can, in effect, turn the kodi skin into a custom 2.35.1 skin given that the dspalyer's settings are global, i.e. they don't just impact the player which i assumed, instead the settings impact the entire skin, which is perfect for my my needs (2.35:1 screen)....
