Poster and Fanart View
#1
Hello,
I love how Kodi helps gives you a little preview of what the movie will be like with the use of images and information, it changed the way I choose and watch movies.
The new Estuary skin is great and it offers more information than ever in a very quick and simple way.
However I havent found a View that features both the Posters and the Fanart, it is one or the other, and the one left out becomes a relatively hidden background (Fanart and List Views).
I'm looking for a Viewtype similar to the MediaInfo on Confluence.
watch gallery


The funny thing is that there was one similar one in the picutres for Krypton 1.7, this:
watch gallery

(corrected the picture, not sure what was wrong with the other one, i just found it online, this one is from another post)

but i cannot find it in the actual installation.
any ideas how to get it? or modify the List Viewtype to show the fan art too?
thanks

Rob

And if you already wants to use Kodi 18, this is from estuaryMOD v2:

Movie:

Movie set:

(the width used for the list seems way to much but it's because of my 21:9 screen. it's about 1/3-2/3 on a 16:9 screen)
Moanbag is in da place!

Nice,
do this other skins have the nice new features estuary has? Lilke extended info and pressing up to view cast?
How long till Leia becomes official?
Is it possible to copy a ViewType from one skin to another?

PD: I have the same problem with the 21:9 Wink on my room computer, but my media center is 16:9.
21:9 is a problem that i love to have though.

Thanks Dangelus, i corrected the image.

Sadly still not quiet what i'm looking for. using other skin, means losing all the estuary features, wich i find really good in a very intuitive distribution that also looks good.
Is there a way to just add the poster picture to the existing view? what files would i need to edit?
