Summer disappeared here for the last 3 days with persistent rain, so I've spent the time working on an updated skin that fits my screen better.
It's here if you want some of it - https://github.com/spudooli/skin.mimic
- hit the download zip button and put it into your add-ons directory. All kudos to bryanbrazil of course for a great original skin that was so easy to hack about with for a low res screen.
It's based on a much later version of Mimic (2.3) which is best for Kodi Isengard. I think it's best with the vertical menu and I've only updated the text sizes for Roboto so you'll need to set both on the Skin Settings page. Given I don't intend to ever watch movies in my car I've also only updated the music related screens.
I've removed a bunch of superfluous stuff (like star ratings, artist names in some places, album year, genre and artist bios etc) that don't fit in small resolution screens. Font sizes have been bumped to make reading it all easier. All the other screens I've left alone as it makes configuring everything easier in the house on the big screen easier if they still exist.
Right now I'm monkeying with a home screen now playing widget.
And if you don't own an E39, you can change the background image. It's called default_bg.jpg in the backgrounds directory/
