Update EULA, optimisation and usability

    2. Curly apostrophes and quotation marks are now transformed to the non-curly variant in compliance with HSD limitations

    2. These symbols work well with HSD, IL-2 GB, Windows & Linux
    3. A “.” (dot) is now trimmed off the end of a skin file name
  15. Automated the resolution selection. HSD now does that for you based on file size
  16. Changed how the previews are loaded in during the first start-up speeding up the process significantly. 
    1. Changed text above loading bar to more accurately reflect what it’s doing
  17. Fixed an issue where uploading a TC skin on the right would cause the files to be renamed incorrectly and thus fail to upload correctly
  18. Switching too fast between items in the Vehicles tree no longer leads to incorrect skins lists
  19. Fixed an issue where clicking anywhere in the vehicles tree would cause the skins list to reload unnecessarily
  20. Time stamps on skins are now UTC instead of local time

  27. Changed the splash screen text to more clearly reflect what it’s doing
  28. Sped up the splash screen preview downloads a little
  29. Removed unnecessary error message after checking for updates
  30. Fixed a bug where the skins list would reload after clearing the queue
  31. Fixed a bug where the queue would unintentionally list skins not owned by the user
  32. Fixed a bug that caused the “similar file name” check to be overly sensitive
  33. The skin information will only display the upload date and not the time to reduce clipping when Windows scaling is used
  34. The database will be rebuilt automatically if a significant database error is detected
  35. Added a character limit to the log file to keep its size in check
