Questions in regards to the updated skin

Hi,

I have some questions for the new skin. So far i liked the old better. There is a couple of things that i find confusing compared to the good old one.

1) I have my NAS movie folder visible in the top, named Movies. All other folders, ex. sources etc are hidden sincei dont use them. Just below that is the recently added movies. If i go down to recently added and start swiping i can only see that row. Meaning the "movies" folder is gone, settings etc is gone. And there is a huge "Nothing" below the recently added movies.

2) As far as i remember (im not sure). I could see the plot and other info when just hovering a recently added movie. I now have to press enter to see everything. (However that second screen with movie info etc is really looking good :) )

3) If i enter movies folder, i really don't know how to search for a movie anymore?

Old skin is still available and can be switched to in settings as an alternative for those who prefer it more.

1) I have more than just movies so that scroll reveal other media shelves as well. Current situation does don't allow me to scroll just as much as needed - half row might be sufficient in your case - so that main menu and top buttons remain visible when you are on movie shelf.

2) Yes, this is how it's meant to be in Ariana.

3) Search has been implemented in version 3.7.1 There are few other things missing in Ariana but it was decided a few months ago to go out with a solid base and add them at a later date so that version 3.7 could go out earlier. Whole Ariana skin was "born" in a relatively short time during TestFlighting version 3.7

For your use case Opacity might be a better choice and it is there to stay and will be supported in Mrmc versions to come.

Thanks for your reply :)

1) Can't the screen just stay fixed when scrlling down to recently added? So the icons just above is not hidden?

3) I do not see any options of using the "old" Ariana? If i select Ariana and go to settings for this skin, there is no options to choose old skin etc?

I'm new here and just got back into using MrMc a couple of days ago - so not sure what the history on this skin may have been - my understanding is that it was brand new with v3.7. I suspect the suggestion was you can go back to Opacity or MrMc, which were previously the the MrMc default skins.

Of course, I could be mistaken.

Right. I was suggesting switching to Opacity skin.

I meant Ariana before it was updated recently. It was way better before. Now i can't even search for movies anymore :/ Further more its also not possible to search for movies based on specific genres...

There was no Ariana before MrMc v3.7.

The default skin for the previous version of MrMc was Opacity. Switch to that skin if you liked the pre v3.7 MrMc default skin better.

As an side @pecinko, I see your note in your change log thread about: Skin ver 1.2.1 /Mrmc Testflight ver 3.7.1. How can one get to skin v1.2.1 on android tv? I am running 3.7.1, but skin version is 1.2.0

I have 1.2.1 on my most recent beta build. Did you check for an update? Might want to move it over to the Google beta thread if so and you're not seeing an update.

Sorry - maybe im mistaken. I was running a light theme very close to Ariana. I have tried Opacity. This is not light / white like Adriana. And the menu is on the left, not in the middle. Was any skins removed with the new update?
