UPDATE: Rapier 11.0.5 is available through the official Kodi repository!

This update is installed automatically.
If this is not the case, you can download it here.


This is a massive update both visually and internally.


2 add-ons will be automatically installed with this update:
  • Skin Helper Backgrounds (script.skin.helper.backgrounds): This add-on is now used for all slideshow backgrounds for music, movies, videos, tv shows, music videos and pvr.
  • Skin Helper Widgets (script.skin.helper.widgets): This add-on is now used for some widgets

The reason for this is a major refactor of the Skin Helper add-on (script.skin.helper.service).
The new add-ons replaces and improves functions previously handled by script.skin.helper.service.



Other hightlights are:
  • List Info / List Info 2 / Thumbs Info Views has been added for video content. Screenshots below.
    This is useful when using the Youtube add-on.
  • List Info 2 View to tv show seasons has been added. Screenshots below.
  • List Info 3 View to tv show seasons has been added. Screenshot below.
  • A banner style has been added to List Info 3 View for tv shows and seasons. Screenshot below.
    Go to the View Options to enable this style.
  • The home screen Add-ons category will now open a completely new add-ons window. Screenshots below.
    This is very useful for a quick overview of your add-ons, organizing them or to just have video, audio, program and picture in the same window.
    The top options menu bar contains a lot of useful features for handling add-ons.
  • Several fixes and improvements for views.
  • Player Process Info dialog has been updated.
  • A "Download Extrafanart" button has been added to the video information window.
  • Updated video information window to support video content type.
    This is useful when running an add-on with video content.
  • A "All Videos" / "Watched" / "Unwatched" toggle button has been added to the PVR recordings window.

Would anyone miss the Wide List View and Fanart View?

I'm considering getting rid of some views to speed up performance.

Based on this poll, not many people are using them.

I don't use those views

I removed Wide List View - Fanart View is still there.


From the next update, you can disable all view types you don't use in your libraries. This will indeed speed up performance.
You can get this update right now by installing my development repository.

After automatically getting the latest update (10.4.8), go to Skin Settings > Views
Disable view types you don't use. Eg. if you only use List Info 3 View for movies, disable ALL other view types.

I'm currently working on improving the home screen.
Both to speed up performance, reduce skin size and to make it a bit more modern.

All categories now use a regular font, which means that category images are no longer needed.
This improves performance, reduces the overall size and is much easier when creating custom categories. Now you just enter the text for the custom category.

I have moved some info around, recently added widgets now contains 5 items, and slightly sped up category animations, which should make them more responsive.


To give an idea of what I mean:

OLD HOME SCREEN - MOVIES CATEGORY:
Image

NEW HOME SCREEN - MOVIES CATEGORY:
Image


Please compare the two images and write any thoughts on this.
You can click them to see them full size.

Help needed!


I just pushed the latest development update to my repo.

This update includes the new home screen categories, some widget refactoring and widget navigation changes.

All custom categories now use a regular text label instead of custom category images.
This means that all custom category names are reverted to "Custom 1", "Custom 2" etc.
Go to Skin Settings > Home > Category Menu > Add more categories / 2 / 3 / 4
Click the "Name" button to set the category name.

This new name is used throughout the skin and also in the skin settings.


Heavy testing is needed and any feedback is extremely appreciated!
Also any thoughts on appearance, ideas etc.

UPDATE: Rapier 11.1.0 is available through the official Kodi repository!

This update is installed automatically.
If this is not the case, you can download it here.



The home screen categories are changed and updated. Screenshots below.
This allows for a more modern look, faster load times, smoother animations and reduced skin size.
The categories now use a regular text label instead of images, which makes it far more flexible.
All home screen widgets top right has been changed slightly and an extra visible item has been added (now 5 items).

All custom categories have been RESET to "Custom 1", "Custom 2" etc.
Go to Skin Settings > Home > Category Menu > Add more categories / 2 / 3 / 4 >
Click the "Name" button to set the category name (this new name is used throughout the skin and also in the skin settings).
If home screen navigation buttons are disabled, 11 characters maximum are recommended.
If home screen navigation buttons are enabled, 10 characters maximum are recommended.



A new section has been added to the skin settings: "Views". Screenshot below.
This section is especially useful when using a low powered device.
Here you can disable all view types you don't use in all windows and sections of Kodi.
TIP: Disabling every single view type you don't use will significantly speed up load times when entering windows and libraries.



Other hightlights are:
  • A new function has been added to Skin Settings > Home > "Change Category Actions". Screenshots below.
    Here you can change the functions of all main home screen categories - with full support for library nodes.
    NOTE: This new feature will reset the now deprecated skin settings to redirect the Music, Videos, TV or Radio categories!
  • An information window for single movies part of a movie set has been added. Screenshot below.
    When focusing a single movie part of a movie set, use the context menu to open the window.
  • PVR Group Manager and PVR Channel Manager dialogs has been updated with changes for Kodi Leia. Screenshot below.
  • A "Channel Guide" button has been added to PVR channel and guide information windows. Screenshots below.
  • A "Debug information" button has been added to fullscreen video OSD. Screenshot below.
    Click this button to display debug information during fullscreen video playback.

Hi skybird.

Thanks for reporting the issue.

I'm extremely busy at work and home at the moment, so I'll look into it when I have some time.

Cheers
Gade
