A completely flat modification of `Black's Xperience1080 skin.

Main Changes will/do include:
- over 1350 new images remade (99.8% of the skin)
- code fixes for XBMC 13.0/13.1
- animation changes to provide a quicker response

beta2 Update 2014-07-05: Here's a link with the beta skin - extract it and drop it in appdata, or install from zip.

Notes:
- You may notice image problems appearing, this is due to the xbt file and will not be in the final mod.
- The PVR section is now nearly completed.
- Dependencies should be installed if prompted or not used already
- XBMC 13.x ONLY
- Full credits are not yet included, this is just a beta.
- New TV/Video/Film/Movie icons (as per feedback)
- New grey used for main window (as per feedback)

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.

Any chance you add the use of XBMBC3 like 1080 ++

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.
