Although this skin is not - in no way, shape, or form - complete, by any stretch of the imagination; time, motivation, and dedication eludes me... therefore, i've decided to release what i have so far. DO NOT have high expectations as various things are not the way the should and some non-existent at all
You will need to be on, at least, Beta 3.5 or the latest nightly. Also, for those with 128MB XBox, let me know how it handles 720 (visually).
- various changes; don't really want to go into it, too many bad memories
download: XBox Extended v0.96
- many changes and fixes have occurred since the last build; i fixed things, but may have broken others (hopefully not much)
download: XBox Extended v0.95
- If you have a previous build, you may need to delete your guisettings.xml file for this to work properly.
download: XBox Extended v0.94
EDIT: 06.30.2014 - WARNING!!! Bugs Amidst!
- Update: link removed
The one thing I'd like to point out is the Games section; some views will require that you have the following folder structure in each game:
- Code: Select all
Although the script has not been working in a couple of xbox i've tried, it has worked on others, so i have included it with the hopes that it will work for you. It will not launch the game at this point because i disabled that... but it should do the rest... if it does not work, it will just get stuck at the progress bar, at which point you'll have to do a manual reboot, i have not really looked into the reason but at a glance, i don't have a clue why it's doing that.
You have been WARNED! Enable it at your own RISK! Just saying!
Assuming the script works, it will - IMPORTANT: this may or may NOT work:
- prompt you to update the database
- scan all "default.xml" with the data onto the database
- reload and display the new info
- play any trailers if you enable that option
REMEMBER: when playing previews, you will suffer a performance lag; this is XBMC and not on of those great emulators; XBMC does NOT run stolen code that claims to be its own even though documentation is non-existent - you know who you are ( ), code that violates the GPL license and it DOES pre-load many other codecs (high overhead - hence low memory) that are meant for what XBMC is, a MEDIA PLAYER.
The default.xml structure is as follows:
- Code: Select all
<genre>First Person Shooter</genre>
<esrb_descriptors>Blood and Gore/Language/Violence</esrb_descriptors>
<features_general>Offline Players: 1-4/System Link: 2-16/HDTV: 480p/16:9 Widescreen/Dolby 5.1 Surround/Xbox Exclusive<features_general>
