Improved XM8 apps for Exile mod

This script adds "apps" button to XM8. This allow use of custom scripts and slides in Exile
This script doing essentially same thing as Shix xm8Apps, however, there are following deference:
 - Sliding functionality of Exile is used in natural way.
 - Go back button is there.
 - Script allow creating custom slides and use them naturally via exile`s functions.
 - Script does not take away any buttons, "Territory" button is shrinked to half size instead.
 - When XM8 is closed and opened last opened slide will be on, same way as Exile`s slides.
 - Whole system is very native to Exile, devs can easily integrate into exile any app, made for this system.
 - Detailed step by step guide, how to make own apps. Visit THIS thread for more info.
 - Support for legacy apps, those made for Shix`s xm8Apps.

WARNING!!! This script MAY have problems with some existing apps.
Old (legacy) apps SHOULD work. "GO BACK" button may be broken,
how to fix it, read in legacy\legacyAppInstall.txt

If you are author of app, and you would like to adapt it to new system, please 
read legacy\legacyAppAdapt.txt, there you will find instructions and examples.

@NickMiner69 You probably have older version of repair mate. Try download this one.

Separate thread for Repair mate was posted yesterday, but it is still under moderators check.

Looks good, but is there way to add Advanced Banking also?

Yeah. However, for proper work, some adjustments to advanced banking script required. Please ask author to make support for improved XM8 apps, there are all needed materials, examples and guides included in download (see first post).
