Known issues
  1. non-EN languages not all updated (see Transifex below for details).
  2. A few small issues when first using the skin, will be resolved (are described below).
Moving from 1080XF to Xperience1080
  1. If you have already have Xperience1080 installed, you'll need to reset your skin settings (Skin Settings -> Advanced -> Reset Skin)
  2. If you don't see the correct language strings, please select another language, then go back to yours.
  3. The default texture set is now Xperience1080, you can select 1080XF from the Themes part in Appearance.
  4. You will lose your skin customisations, sorry about that. I won't be changing the name of the skin again.
Note: You can continue to use 1080XF, if you're happy with it. It won't be supported, however.

Moving from the Xperience1080/1080XF Beta to Xperience1080 repository
  1. If you've been testing the Xperience1080 beta, you shouldn't need to do much. Your settings should still work (the repo version is the last stable testing version).
  2. If you've been testing the 1080XF beta, you'll need to follow the above.

I love the Xperience1080 skin already on itself, but also there is room for a flat version.
Really looking forward for your release, always love flat modern UI's.

Great job.

It will work with Gotham 13.1.

The only part I'm having an issue with is the screen calibration option, `Black if you see this I would appreciate a small nudge to help me resolve the issue - all the images are stretched, but the main problem is the A/R. I'll continue to dig around and see what the issue is.

Perhaps you could put it on Github, and allow people to install it already on Gotham so they can provide feedback on Github itself making it easier to spot bugs or feature requests.

I plan to either create a repo or put it on git, or both. Also I don't want to let anyone use it yet as, frankly, I'm a perfectionist and want to make sure each pixel is correct. Once I'm reasonably happy with it I'll put a zip up just for testing followed by setting up git and the repo.

Added note:
- not all images will be 100% new, but all will be changed. An example is the 99 images used for the progress indicator (volume wheel, now playing etc) - I've removed the shadow from each one so it's 'flat' but believe the gradient should stay. If people don't like this I can change it. I may decide to change it, meh. Hoping to post more screenshots later on this evening of fully completed areas.

edit: I don't mind creating a zip for PM, I would rather not but I understand extra eyes are always useful. It WON'T be finished but will be complete. If you would like the current version please send me a PM, I really hate releasing unfinished work.

For anyone interested, here is a side by side comparison of the new image vs. the current image used for one icon:

I'm sorry but my skills don't go anywhere near that far. Basic fixes and graphics are my two areas for XBMC.
