  3. Ares wizard is a great little program add-on which has a wealth of features from installing builds, add-ons, repo's. Its also a great program for maintenance (clearing thumbnails, cache, purging packages etc.).... There's also a handy little setting in the tweaks section for adjusting the cache size (to available ram) this may help a lot of people out with some buffering issues. one of their admin team tekto (tony) has done a very nice in depth guide to all the features here. http://www.tekto-kodi.com/kodi-how-to-tutorials/ares-wizard-guide/

  7. Thanks to @Yummer and @Mixdoctor for this post A Big HELLO to all our members on this marvelous World Wide Forum, We are all here for help and support and obviously news about our hobby and interests and the Staff and Members are all here to share our expertise and knowledge when our members have problems and we all try to help and get you all up and running as quickly as possible. The main problem with this is some of our members are not helping themselves. Yes, we understand if you got a problem you would like speedy results and answers but time after time we see the same questions like “Help pin wont work” or “Spartan wizard keeps asking me to log on” etc. In reply to questions like that we ask “what are you trying to install in on?” or “when do you get this error?” etc. Now you can obviously see that this is wasting time on your behalf and you are still stuck and having to reply with the relevant information, hence talking up more time to get you up and running when we want to get you running as soon as possible as thats what the forum is about. So members please think when posting problems to be solved and take a quick look through this checklist below as the more information you can give us the quicker we can try to resolve your problems and get you up and running. The very, very first thing to check is your ISP is not blocking you in any way, now you say well it did work last week but please remember ISP’s update numerous times a day so what may have worked last week may not work this week so you need to disable some settings to prevent this from happening. To stop your ISP blocking software please CLICK HERE (A BIG thanks to @Yummer) for this post. This post tells you how to adjust your settings on Various ISP’s and trust me it resolves at least 60% of problems. What are you trying to install? (Kodi, The Beast, Spartan Wizard etc ) What are you trying to install onto? ( Device you are trying to update/get working ) Method of installing? ES File Explorer or File Manager etc. Let us know how far you are getting until you run into problems. The problem you are having and any error messages. Always try and give us a brief description and order of what you are doing until you get to the point where you are having your problem. Please do not post multiple posts on the same issue as it will get deleted and a warning will be issued NO troubleshooting in pm or by mail as it does not benefit others with the same issue So a typical question “Help I can't install the Spartan wizard !” ( does not tell us a lot does it ) If it looks something like "Help I am trying to install The Spartan wizard from spartan site on my Fire Stick using File Manager and I keep getting an error saying the link cannot be resolved". This straight away tells us what we need to know that you're using a Fire Stick and trying to install and download the Spartan Wizard from spartan.net using the file manager hence we can now help you straight away without asking you what are you installing on etc saving you a lot of time and frustration and getting you going a lot quicker. By the way my answer to the example problem above is item number 1 ( ISP Blocking ) as this can be caused by your ISP blocking software also make sure you type the link correctly http://spartanpixel.net/repo/ Anyway I hope this post explains that the more information you can give us the quicker the members and staff can get you up and running. If I have missed anything out or anybody thinks something should be added to this post please leave a comment below. Thanks for reading

  8. This is a nice feature to be able to add Exodus to the Royalists spotlight: Step 1: Launch Exodus and go to whatever section you want ( Most Viewed/ Latest Movies ) displayed on the spotlight. Step 2: Bring up the context menu/press left and scroll down to where it says "Set Custom Widget Path" Step 3: Add it to any of the 4 widgets available. Step 5: Go to System / Skin Settings / Customize Main Menu / Select Movies and Select Widget and here select the widget that you want. Another way would be to type it all like so: Step 1: System / Skin Settings / and go to Widgets and on Custom widget 1 type the following: In Theaters: plugin://plugin.video.exodus/?action=movies&url=theaters Latest Movies: plugin://plugin.video.exodus/?action=movies&url=featured Most Popular: plugin://plugin.video.exodus/?action=movies&url=popular The same procedure goes for Tv Shows.

  21. Hi all! Signed up so I can post on the forum as I have read over a few threads and cannot seem to find an answer to my issue. Registered an account on Spartanpixel and verified my email , tried to set up the beast via a Youtube tutorial as you do and became stuck at one of the first hurdles. "Authentication failure" apparently I need to log in, which I thought I was. I even tried to debug log in although someone will probably tell me that wasn't needed. Then I figured maybe its not recognising my account because I was logging in on an incognito window so I moved over to my main window and now its not recognising my email address when I log in or when I try to submit a reset password! Whats going onnnnn? Any help will be muchhh appreciated THANKS in advance!

  29. A brand new look for future Kodi versions A long, long time ago when Kodi was still called XBMC, a new skin came into life. It was on 21 November 2009 that the switch was made from PM3.HD to Confluence. Over the years it has fulfilled it’s purpose as the default skin which every one sees on a fresh Kodi installation and many likely never switched to one of the other skins available. During this period Confluence received several minor tweaks and updates and only one big change when we switched from a vertical to horizontal main menu. Today will mark a new milestone in the history of the project as we announce our two new default skins. Yes you read it correct, two new skins. The first one is called Estuary and it will be what most of you will see from now as it is designed for the so-called “10 foot media center experience”. The second one is dedicated to the people who are using touchscreens and is called Estouchy which will be replacing the re-Touched skin. Many months of hard work have been put into these two new skins as that’s how long it takes to build a new skin from the ground up. Mainly team members Phil65, Piers and ronie have been working in secret creating these brand new beautiful skins that will become the new look and feel for Kodi. Build from the ground up with the main focus on using the latest features in the best way possible. Additionally they had a lot help of some core developers on getting the needed changes done to Kodi and the rest of the team for getting most of the testing done. Both skins are installed by default and most users will start with Estuary while iOS users will start with Estouchy. Without further ado let’s take a tour through both new skins guided by some screenshots and YouTube video. Estuary As you will see the main eye catcher is the whole new home screen which will guide you through all the main sections that are available. All this build from some of the newest features that are available for skin creators. We have added some useful widgets for movies and tv shows like random, recently added, in progress and, random. For music recently played, added, random, unplayed and most played are available. Even Live TV has a favourite channels widget. For add-ons a new feature was added that will show you the add-ons for each media type sorted by last used directly on home screen. By doing so the add-ons you use most are always within reach. The top bar has some useful shortcuts that will jump straight to what we felt was most useful. Library and onwards Entering the library you will notice that all views also received some facelift. The developers tried to keep functionality and information in balance and certainly did a great job. Themes and colours As a bonus we added a whole variety of themes and colours to change the look a bit more. Although not really new feature we never really used it in the default skin until now. The examples below are some of the available themes that are included by default. After you changed to a certain theme you can still change certain highlights with changing the colour option below the theme setting. We hope that by including these variations there will be something to each her or her liking. More are likely to follow in the near future. Estouchy Creating a functional and good looking skin for small screen touch devices is quite challenging. With Estouchy this balance seems to hit a nice sweet spot and ronie did a great job on this. As many have noticed there isn’t really a touch friendly skin available so we’re certainly happy to offer a good compromise for this by default. As you notice not all the features Estuary has are available on Estouchy. The main reason is that the screen is simply not big enough to fit everything on it and remain usable. We would mainly like to say thanks to Phil65, Piers and ronie whoe create the skin as well as all team members who put a lot time and effort in these two new skins that resulted in these magnificent creations. We hope everyone enjoy them for years to come. Video walkthrough Nothing better than actually seeing these skins in action so we put up some videos to give you a sneak preview for what is to come. Estuary Trailer Estuary walk through (22 minutes) Estouchy walk through Bug reports and suggestions Although we already did some extensive testing ourselves there will always be some minor bugs and glitches presents so we if you find any please report them in the forum threads listed below. Make sure you add enough information or screenshots so we can reproduce. We’re sure many of you will have suggestions to make Estuary and Estouchy even better so we’d love to hear them. Do note that we want to keep the default skins as simple and easy to use as possible so we will not start adding every customization or feature that comes up. Please understand our point of view on this. For Estuary forum section you can go here and for Estouchy can go here. Conclusion We certainly hope that with these two new skin we pushed Kodi to a new level of first user friendliness and help them get a easier start on the world of Kodi. During the coming months we will further tweaks and polish these skins to iron out any issues and incorporate and improve features we would think users will benefit from. Sadly we cannot please everyone and some of you might not like these skins. Please understand we tried to do our best to fit the most common use cases and will not add advanced customization that the more knowledgeable people want. For them there is an abundance of other skins available that do offer all bells and whistles. If you wonder when they will be available we can say from this day forward. However for this you will need to install our Kodi v17 nightly builds which you can find at the bottom of our download page. Do note that these are not meant for daily use unless you are really adventurous. Estuary and Estouchy are only meant to be installed in Kodi v17 “Krypton” versions. They will NOT function properly in any previous Kodi version. By default a new install will only have Estuary and Estouchy installed. Since Confluence will still be available from our official repository any existing Kodi installation that upgrades to v17 “Krypton” will receive the updated version of Confluence. We can imagine that not everyone would like to be forced to switch to the new skin so we came to this solution.

  37. double check everything from the start... if your in uk first click this and remove any content filtering if you've signed up at Spartan pixel..... (have you verified your e-mail address) check your spam/junk folder log in to the dashboard to make sure your account is now active. configure the Spartan wizard..(highlight Spartan wizard press the context menu button -it usually has 3 lines on a firestick.......click add-on settings and fill in your e-mail/password) double/triple check your spellings make sure your not missing a letter number or special character.... its an easy mistake to make especially using a remote control if your happy and it all looks good hit the ok button to save. now launch the wizard

I then presume you know the rest as you got 1.6 on yourself So basically a clean start ok Kodi, then get the wizard and install it then once you put in your email and password into the configuration of the spartan wizard, launch it and choose whatever version of the beast you want to install. Hope this helps.
