Synonyms: resemble, look like, have the appearance of


Introduction

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.

Usage

Explore the skin settings to customize the menus or change the color theme. You can also view a list of supported addons, and install any you are missing.

Works great! Is there a way to remove the °C/°F if I don't use a weather widget though? And a way to disable the changing "background to fanart etc" when I hover over a movie or an application?

 Works great also for me except no keypad displayed during TV channel change ( if using my Remote control keypad) 
see https://github.com/braz96/skin.mimic/issues/79

Any idea ?

Is it possible to have multiple widgets on the home screen? I would like three different ones instead of just the one.

 Not possible, and likely won't be adding it to Mimic...

It really is too bad about not having multiple widgets on the home screen. I watch my content regularly so there is never more than a few recently added that are not already watched. Would be nice to have unwatched or continue watching on there as well.

Also is it possible to have an OSD that has the controls on the bottom?

 Sorry, don't plan to add any new features/options to Mimic at the moment...I plan to keep the skin working, but most of my available time is spent on the Omni skin. You would need to modify the skin code...

when we go over the thumbnails, the entire poster appears in the background, but it is very transparent. Could you show me in the code how to reduce this background trasnparencia?
