Now available from the official repository.




---------------------------------------------------------------------
What is 1080XF?
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1080XF is a Kodi v14.x flat texture skin based on Xperience1080 by `Black. A few additional changes have been made and both texture sets are available to choose from (flat and original).
NOTE: Updated are made here fist before being copied over to my Xperience1080 releases (I remove custom items added and just include fixes for Xperience1080).


---------------------------------------------------------------------
Installation
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Download the zip file from the link at the top of this post.
2. IMPORTANT: Install from the zip, this will trigger the installation of skin dependencies.
3. Allow the skin to install, dependencies to be downloaded (where required) and load.
4. 1080XF textures are the default (Skin default), but you choose from the original textures by going to Settings -> Appearance -> Theme -> Xperience1080.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
Why can't I use `Black's version?
---------------------------------------------------------------------
You can, but only if you use XBMC v12 (mostly works in v13). However, if you're using Kodi v14.x (aka Helix) then it won't work due to core changes.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
Changelog (see changelog.txt for version history)

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.
