Congrats for the new skin. But will it be only for Kodi 18? Or there is a chance for 17.

I don't mind using Kodi 18 if I get rid of this annoying message whenever I launch Kodi. Even after a fresh install, still appears.

This happened after I upgraded my Nvidia Shield to Android Nougat 5.0.2, in Android Marshmallow 3.3 I was using 18 with no problems.

Hi guilouz,

First report on this new skin: great work and almost as customisable as the old one!

A few things I see:

1) is it possible to add a setting to remove the color overlaping on studio logo?

[Image: 170212023603834409.png]

2) is it possible to add back the studio logo for movies? Seems to be missing right now

Moanbag is in da place!

It's not possible to add your own widgets. But you can see that : http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=...pid2523092

Hi Guilouz,

I startet on German Translation :-)

One Question and one wish.

Am I missing something or is it (not yet) possible to add own entries into the Mainmenü?

May I ask if it is possible to remove the opaque background of the Movie Logo in Mainmenü?

I see that but be careful I have made changes on languages files (remove strings which are no longer used).

It's not possible to add own items on main menu but you can reorder them.

I have add opaque background for clearlogos to be better seen when items are behind them. I don't want to remove it.

Hi Guilouz,

Just try the latest MOD from git

My library view was set to wall before I install it but now If I go to view my library (movies or TVshow) then it will open this page:

[Image: 170213012140545419.png]

Once i make a choice on this page, it will open the wall view

BUT if I made the choice for one library (movies) and make it also for the other (TVshows) , if I return to the first one (Movies) it will go again to the same page where I will have to choose before going to wall view

Also see that skin.helper.service seems to be a necessary addon:

[Image: 170213014909630399.png]

But there is no link for it in the OP:
