Re: [Skin] Rapier Clarity Mod (3.5.49)

Ok, I think you can undo the changes I asked you to try. What is the name of the source for your games folder, and where is it? For example if you have a folder that isn't called games and isn't saved as a source in program/files then this could be the issue. I tried this method and have no issues s...

Re: [Skin] Rapier Clarity Mod (3.5.49)

Hey sorry again for taking a while to get back. Open up Includes_Variables.xml with a text editor that will give you line numbers ( I prefer notepad++ ). Replace the code on line 156 with this: <value condition="Window.IsActive(501) | Window.IsActive(2) | [Window.IsActive(1) + ![Substring(Container....

Re: [Skin] Rapier Clarity Mod (3.5.49)

Hello, apologies for the late response. From home menu: system>skin>home>disable home menu custom items click the "DISABLE ALL HOME MENU CUSTOM ITEMS" radio button so that it is unticked and head back to the home menu. Go to the programs submenu and an "ADD PATH" button should now appear. Click that...

Happy birthday...kinda funny how time creeps in eh? "COB" is relative though, I feel like any father with three kids could easily fall into that category at any age ;)

Re: XBMC4XBOX360 Sort of..

Very cool, who knows what will come of it but I for one thank you for your time and effort...most people don't realize how easy it is to get sucked up into coding and lose weeks of your life while chasing something down in there ;)

Re: Estuary - Kodi's new skin

screenshot002.jpg So I'm trying to get Home.xml together as a starting point and then on to other windows for a less buggy framework. At that point I'll push to git so anybody that wants to can help. In the meantime I've kind of hit a wall due to a texture attribute we don't have, it's stretched th...

Re: Estuary - Kodi's new skin

I'll give an example (I think this is how it works)...from Includes_Home.xml (line 40 and this is your $PARAM template for all home submenus): <include name="SubMenu"> <control type="group"> <height>110</height> <visible>$PARAM[visible]</visible> <animation effect="slide" end="110,0" time="0" condit...

Re: Estuary - Kodi's new skin

I took a look at the $PARAM from the skin's includes.xml...dunno how to even begin to tackle it. It's like includes on crack :shock: It would probably be easier to just write the cpp code for that then to side step with hackery or as Dom suggested write it up from scratch with a rough draft just by ...

Re: [Skin] Rapier Clarity Mod (3.5.49)

I must say I'm baffled by the showgameinfo issue (it's all rcb skins from 2.0.10 not just this one). I've been trying some hacky stuff but still can't get it to work, and nothing has changed in the code regrading the activation of gameinfo since 2.0.4 :? The other issue with the images and on screen...

Re: [Skin] Rapier Clarity Mod (3.5.49)

Are you referring to say changing a filter (eg genre) and then nothing is there after? If that's what you're pointing out, then you have to "double click" the item. Or as with the gameinfo window if you open and then close RCB context menu they reappear...I don't get it either but it's like that on ...

thanks for the tip , I had set up the information screen on the black button joypad in gamepad.xml more with this tip was improved . Yea, maybe your fix for the info is better but it's not automatic (meaning a user has to manually edit files), did it work with this version right away? For some reas...

Re: [Skin] Rapier Clarity Mod (3.5.49)

Fantastic...I apologize, I uploaded it that way by mistake but thanks to you I've changed it in the DL link on OP. I also made one small tweek in the gui.py where on the gamepad the yellow button (y) accesses game info...if you want to replace that file go for it or you could just open up the gui.py...

Re: [Skin] Rapier Clarity Mod (3.5.49)

Hey, I made some changes throughout the skin, I'm wondering...did you replace the entire skin or just the RCB files? You should replace the entire skin, try again, and please report back. Btw, thanks for the kind words above :) Also, if that doesn't make it work a debug log would be helpful so I can...

Re: Estuary - Kodi's new skin

Has anyone looked at the code? While not many have reported back on my Transparency! port, I feel it was accurate and succesful but that was from 2014 and Dom is right in that many changes in the skinning engine have been made upline since then. Having said that, I wouldn't mind stripping it down to...
