I run a rasperry pi with Amber skin, which I believe is a 1080 skin.

Imo it runs great and from what I think, the rpi will only go forward regarding how snappy it will handle skins.

I have no experience with skinning or any technical stuff regarding xbmc or the raspberry pi, but is there a way to compare your skin and the amber skin in terms of lightweight?


Gonna try your skin with my raspberry pi anyways when the time comes, because I have been following your skin since I discovered XBMC Big Grin

Quick update... just got the dialogs to sort, then it's preview/alpha time.

Cheers

Hey all,

Sorry for lack of updates. Been a busy time again for me. Still been working on Welo, however things had slowed down. Back on it a bit more now.

There's a few bits in settings to complete, plus dialogs. Then there will be an alpha/preview release. No idea on an eta yet.

I'll admit... this has to be the slowest skin development cycle in xbmc history... sorry for that! Big Grin

Cheers Wink

I used to use Welo v1 on an apple tv 2 and it ran perfect, not sure how that compares to an rpi though. I only switched because updating to frodo allowed volume control on atv2 thru xbmc (i think that is why i updated).

I also ran amber skin on same atv2 but one xbmc version later, and it seemed as snappy as Welo was, I don't think there were too many changes too have made it slower.

If that helps.
