    I'm working on some new display mods. They don't deviate much from the stock D2/S5/S8 screens right now but I have some plans for both the browser and decks.

    Huge shout out to Sydes and ErikMinekus. Without their pioneering work, these would not be possible.

    Looking for feedback. I expect to post these to GitHub by Monday.

    Some more updates...

    Left justified the filter selection list and displayed more options. (I dislike center justified text in list views.)

    Added the track comment to the header, increased the size of the beat countdown, added a dedicated area to the right of the stripe for the time remaining indicator, and the portion of the track that has already played is dimmed:

    I'm not modifying firmware. I'm guessing the screens are rendered virtually in your computer and pumped out over USB to the D2/S5/S8 screens.

    And this is what I have for the browser so far. There is a new column for key match, and it shows the numerical value, up or down on the wheel, that the select track is compared to the master track. Also, when you sort by key, the key itself is color coded like Traktor. (Featured in second pic, but the colors look the same from the phone camera.)

    Strange. And you had Traktor closed when installing or restarted after copying the Screens folder over? The CSI and Defines folders are untouched because I was not changing any of the functionality of the hardware - just changed the screens.

    Really cool mod. Thanks

    I submit you really important improvement. I display 2 decks at the same time.
    When you touch FX knobs, the ribbon appears & mask the deckheader A. So the beats to cue disappear. Not so handy When you wanna make a double drop with some effects.

    Is it possible to fix that ?

    So maybe minimize both decks while the FX panel appears? I could try.

    Or maybe just don't display the FX panel. We know wich FX are used on each knobs. We don't need to see the panel.

    Can't you just uncheck "Auto Open FX Panels on Touch" in the preferences for that?

    Very nice! I'm a big fan of this mod!

    I'm not a fan of 9 lines in the browser; the fonts are a bit too small for my old eyes.

    Also, I said on the old mods thread...
    I've got a feature request regarding the key offset colors.
    MIK describes a compatible key option not normally considered, a quote from the article here:
    https://mixedinkey.com/Book/Use-Advanced-Harmonic-Mixing-Techniques

    Last feature request is color waveform.

    I was thinking about making the number of lines on a browser screen a preference that the user could easily toggle between via a settings file.

    Also, I do take into account that key match. If it's not working, please let me know!
