Users of this skin will quickly see the resemblance to two of my favorite skins, Aeon Nox and reFocus. Even as Mimic borrows from both of these skins, my hope is that it will develop into its own style over time. Many thanks to BigNoid for his work on Aeon Nox, on which this skin is based. I've used many of the available skins since discovering XBMC/Kodi, but always returned to one of the Nox variations for its feature set and clear navigation. Also thank you to Jeroen, creator of reFocus, whose clean design and attention to detail were an inspiration for this skin. Mimic also borrows some of the great views from reFocus such as Gallery and BigList. More recently, this skin now "mimics" features from Arctic Zephyr and its mods, fTV, and Phil65's skin.
These addons will automatically install when installing Mimic from the repository.

- Why don't the home widgets work with a mouse?
The skin is designed for use with a remote or keyboard, mouse support is limited. For best results using a mouse or touch device, be sure to enable the skin setting to show the home widgets all the time. Skin Settings --> Home window --> Always show home widgets
- Why isn't rss text displayed when using the Feedreader screensaver?
I've modified the skin for this addon to only display photos. One source of photo rss feeds is flickr. Try using the following rss link, replacing "yosemite" with your preferred keyword.
- Why are some of my random fanart backgrounds black, or why don't my thumbnails show up?
This is likely caused by missing or corrupted images in your texture cache. I suggest using the Texture Cache Maintenance Utility to clean up and repair your cached textures. It is also useful for finding duplicate media in your library and updating IMDb ratings. I posted a guide to setting it up in Window 8.1.
- Why isn't artwork displayed in the music playlist window?
Try removing \Kodi\cache\MusicPlaylist.fi
