Hey Krish,

I've been away on business, plus things have been a bit crazy, so time has been real short for XBMC stuff!

Gonna get back on the case next week so hopefully i'll have the last alpha out by the end of next week. The OSD will be part of that.

Cheers

Looking forward to the next Alpha! When the OSD is included I never have to switch back to another skin Smile

Well, that's encouraging. Since i set up the repo a month and bit ago, the repo zip file has been downloaded 961 times! Big Grin

Bet that doesn't mean 961 users are using Welo alpha though!! Laugh

Force Refresh it.

yeah, for some reason when a repo is installed for the first time, nothing shows in it. restarting xbmc refreshes it.

cheers

Can you take a look of profile handling? I have two profiles with logon screen enabled. WELO skin show a blank screen (with WELO background though). I could not go nowhere from there. Profile logon screen works with xbmc default skin .Thanks!

That's because it's an alpha release. Wink

I understand. But this is a big deal since the skin is basically unusable to me. I have two profiles for me and kids.

Best bet would be to use a skin that's in a release stage, many to choose from. Alpha (especially alpha) and Beta skins shouldn't be used for your main system that's going to be used everyday. As they will no doubt be missing features as they are not yet complete.

Lots and lots and lots go into making a skin and they can take a good long while until they are complete. I'm sure the Profile screen (amongst others) is on his To-Do list and will eventually be put in when he can find the time. Wink

Thanks.
I really like the skin and would want to use it. I was happy with it until having multiple profiles. If the missing functions are inside, I don't really care as long as the main functions are there. But this logon issue basically stops me from using it.Sad
Well, I guess I have to switch back to default skin until this issue is fixed.
