And that's fine I am glad you liked it and didn't want to wait, I actually have already changed it to something a little different, but that's not the point. I asked every tester not to reuse any unique feature I had in the alpha release as I want them to be presented as a whole with the release of my skin to the general public.

Oh man that totally sucks. I'm really sorry to hear that has happened to you. I mean, we all borrow ideas from each other. This is one of the great things about the skinning community - the great ideas stick and get improved upon and most of the chaff gets left behind. But to have an idea, design or code completely ripped off before release is beyond the pale. This has happened a couple of times before and it is totally disappointing to see.

I'm just glad you haven't been completely discouraged by this as some of your ideas that I've seen have been really unique and interesting. So all I'm going to say is keep up the great work, don't get discouraged, and I'm excitedly looking forward to your eventual release whenever that happens!

Thanks that means a lot. And I don't mind the borrowing of ideas but at least ask prior... or let the original skin at least be released.. now I see how djh felt after he showed his first list view. Not that mine will even be able to compete with his work but just the same. It may not make much difference in the end as I just found out one of main modules I am using my not be supported in future Kodi releases... it is already remover of Kodi 18 64bit. so that was nice to find out hahaha.

but again thanks for the works of encouragement. btw your latest skin looks awesome I hope I can get my colors and everything to look as smooth as you have.

It's indeed sad this happens.
Also PIL might not be gone yet however it's future is uncertain as it's pain to compile on multiplatform. That it's not in win64 is simply because no one fixed it yet.

Gotcha I really do wish I understand that part of the code more to help.. but unfortunately I am still learning and am far from even thing of looking at the core... At worst case at least it is still in the 32 bit version so the skin will last one more year. By the time 19 comes out I will either have something or be locked in one make it really stable for 18 so no worries. I do appreciate your reply that does bring me some hope hahaha.
