Do not install or use this skin unless you have either touch screen or a mouse connected or you will lose navigation and have to manually change to another

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TOUCHED is currently the default skin for iOS builds so no download for it exsists (11th Sep 2011)


All source code (including the original images and commit history) can be found on my github account at https://github.com/xbmc/skin.touched

THIS BUILD REQUIRES A VERY RECENT NIGHTLY BUILD OF XBMC NO OLDER THAN 09-Sep-2011 MAKE SURE YOU USE IT OR YOU WILL HAVE ISSUES http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/darwin/ios/

Obvious changes in this version

Re-Added the big bottom buttons for fat fingers (only real feedback I got was that people preferred them)

Added skin settings to remove items from home and to also add some quick launch for video addons

Updated the context menu to use the new code which helps to make the buttons more visible for their "clickable" area

Added some Basic touch screen controls to the picture window. Next/Previous Image, Exit out of full screen, Show Image Information, Toggle display of Music Info if music is playing

*Added some Basic touch screen controls to the picture window. Next/Previous Image, Exit out of full screen, Show Image Information, Toggle display of Music Info if music is playing

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EXTRA STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW

* Technically gestures should also work on windows 7 with a recent git master build of xbmc but its not tested so use at own risk

* LINUX IS NOT SUPPORTED. Linux does not have the gesture API hooked up yet so you wont be able to navigate around your media with a touch screen its currently iOS and windows 7 only

* I suggest adding this to your advancedsetting.xml and starting with a fresh userdata dir XBMC's default is 512 and a 256 will make your thumbs load much quicker when scrolling and they never get displayed that big in the skin anyway see here http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Advancedsett...umbsize.3E
PHP Code:
<thumbsize>256</thumbsize

* I have also uploaded a nicer weather icon pack to my site that I recommend people use I got the original from here http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=50196 but modified it so it would work with Eden versions of XBMC, so all credit to Bob___ for making it weather.zip just copy it over and replace the same zip in /private/var/stash/Applications.CHXuVl/XBMC.app/XBMCData/XBMCHome/media while xbmc is not running

The old development thread is located here http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=105142 so you can see its development

Some Changes in this version from the old version include

Much better support for subtitles Nod you can now turn them on and off from the OSD (middle right) and also download new ones if you want with the subtitle script

I would also please like people to start working on some translations now too so I can stick it in the official repo and maybe even make it the default iOS skin. you can find the language file here

I'm running today's build of XBMC from:
http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/win32/

And 0.8 of skin.touched on Windows 7.

It works beautifully but lists don't scroll when I swipe my touch screen (or with my mouse). They just highlight whatever my finger is over.

Is there something I need to do to enable gestures on Windows 7?

I'm looking forward to using this as a touch screen jukebox.

Fantastic work Jezz_X, many thanks!

Duplicate post fail lol I might as well use it to ask another question are there any plans to introduce a showcase view to the skin. I think a showcase skin with fan art support would be the icing on the cake.

I don't know like I said in the original post it should work in theory but maybe while enabling it on iOS Memphiz has accidentally disabled it on Windows 7 I don't have a PC touch screen so can't say if it does or not

Fanart is a Major ass slowdown on the iPad maybe its just my iPad 1 so any view with it slows it right down so no, no plans

Dutch translation. Note: most dutch users are used to english words in the UI's they use so i kept some words instead of forcefully translating them to weird dutch words Smile

While viewing my movies library, the thumbnails are still only showing as a frame grab from the video, no the posters I've assigned through EMM. I'm using the same path substitution that I'm using on my ATV2 and Windows box, and those two are working just fine.

Help, please?!
