Just found this Skin and 1st thoughts..Nice clean modern. Big fan of black glass so I know what to expect with your work.

I presume settings up menus is similar to that and chroma Skins.

Had to reinstall kodi and all my addons so my setups not 100% loaded up yet...mainly artwork downloader and trakt updates for library.

Does this Skin support the following;

Animated posters
Clearart on osd

I do like clearart/character arts to show in menu views.

I'm sure I'll report back on stuff in th3 next few days of using this skin

Thumbs Up  RE: Andromeda

Wonderful skin, I use it as my primary skin now.
very fast, nice order and look of the widgets.

I understand this skin is still under development
so I can suggest few issues & improvement:

1. Subtitle offset screen is not transparent, so trying to correct subtitle sync is very difficult.

2. while browsing the menu items to sub menu (upward) or widgets (downward), it will be preferable that the menu item will stay highlighted, so we can know which menu we are using now.

3. Icon view -> 53 has only 1 text line for movie description, maybe reducing font size or increasing description size to allow more description text to be read.

4. I think Default view for programs should be 55 -> Slim List , will be able to see more menu items on screen

5. adding Netflix view, similar to titan skin will be greatly appreciated, I think it will be really beautiful and useful in your skin.

6. vertical menu could be nice, I've read you thinking to implement it.


appreciate your work, thank you

Hi TGX,

After working on your skin for quite some time now.

The main (and practically "the only") issue i found is that widgets at the home screen are loading super fast and sometimes super slow (especially when changing tiles in the skin).
A good example would be if you put a widget of your local movie library and local tv shows library, and you try to switch between the tiles, the loading time can reach minutes sometimes.

any suggestions? the issue happened on Windows and Android systems (which i have tested it on).
