Re: Can I reduce F: partition to increase E:?

The 5GB on E:\ is more than enough for what's best to be there and in some cases must be there ie. UDATA and TDATA which means the Custom Soundtracks too. With a softmod it is often, but not always, where you main dash content will be too. There is more than enough space for all that and more. I can...

Re: Putting a shortcut to XMBC4Gamers on UnleashX main menu

I'm pretty sure you made a syntax mistake in the very first line ":E\Apps........................."

It should be "E:\Apps........................"

Re: Help removing Rocky5 softmod now I have a mod chip

If your chip is working OK and your DVD drive likewise all you really need to do is, making sure the HDD is unlocked first, take it out and wipe it on PC then use an installer disc to setup a dashboard etc for a hardmodded Xbox. I'd make sure I had an eeprom backup if not done already. You don't nee...

Re: xbox aladdin chipped without hdd, can i use with a new hdd?

Try cold booting the Xbox ie. with the disc already loaded. The disc should be on DVD-R preferably burned using ImgBurn too. Also check that Aladdin chip is actually working when you start the Xbox - press and hold the Power button for 1 - 2 secs should activate the chip, a short tap will cause it t...

Re: Fix for Issues with Pal games in NTSC Video mode?

In the majority of cases PAL Xbox games natively support NTSC use too. Just swap the Xbox to NTSC using the Enigmah Region Changer app not any other dashboard NTSC settings . You should be good for the majority of games. Of course there are exceptions. Darkwatch PAL, I don't have because I imported ...

Re: FTP TO xbmc4gamers

You should not need to use a cross-over cable when networking to a PC/router as the PC will detect the signals no matter which channel is being used. The problem could just be the settings; typically that when you change dashboards it was set for DHCP and is now Static or visa versa. I think Rocky5 ...

Re: FTP issues

It has been like that for decades - a lot of useful and indeed important information about modding, significant detail and specific advice for things like HDD upgrades is not always included in guides or advice given.

Re: [Archive] XBMC4XBox Custom Splash Screens

Sorry I do not know of any download source for game previews etc. It is easy enough to make your own; Xbox many games include "attract" videos somewhere in their folders which are ideal . They can be in various formats, sometimes .XMV but most commonly .BIK video and occasionally .WMV. The...

What I do when that happens is go back to the source file which I've usually archived because many of my apps/emulators/music/some games icons are my own custom ones. I open them in the graphics program I use and then re-save them as JPGs. I then FTP or transfer them by other means to the Xbox and c...

Re: strange icon issues...

Simply converting the extension to .tbn should work with both .png and .jpg image files. I do not know about whether it works with .gif or even .bmp (which XBMC also supports). A typical accidental mistake, if this was done on PC then transferred to the Xbox, is that you've added the extension to an...

If you're putting the 256x256 "default.tbn" in the individual game's folder then it should be working as long a you've cleared the previous thumbnail cache and rebooted, which you said you have done. Are you 100% sure you've deleted all the UserData > Thumbnails > Games cache? There are or...

Re: -XBOX Error Codes-

The two Xboxes have different eeproms so you can't just swap the HDD between the two. Since the other Xbox you want to swap it to is in stock state you can not, easily, get the eeprom from that to lock the HDD to that Xbox. If you're electronically savvy you can build or buy an eeprom reader but tha...

Re: -XBOX Error Codes-

If your Xbox is not modded or a softmod then do not unlock the HDD. If you do the Xbox will throw an error code on next boot/reboot and without the eeprom (essentially a unique electronic key code) you will have difficulty getting it working again unless you chip the machine. You can get the eeprom ...

Re: Hard Disk upgrade

I do think that unlikely - if he is seeing the Evox pinky/purple 'triangle' logo at boot then it is 99% certainly either a chipped or TSOPed Xbox. You can create an UnleashX or XBMC (not sure about Avalaunch) dash loading screen which mimics that which might fool the inexperienced but the difference...

Re: Hard Disk upgrade

OK with the hardmod now confirmed: in that case you can just install the new HDD into the Xbox and boot up an installer disc and it will walk you through the process of formatting and installing a dashboard of choice. Chances are the HDD has already been wiped and formatted to NTFS or FAT32 but if y...

Assuming you're using XBMC of some form you can easily list any or multiple location(s) as a source for Games. If you have a whole archive it would make sense to put them in alphabetized sub-folders in your F:\ and G:\Games folders. You'll have to create the sub-folders yourself using either the Xbo...

Re: Hard Disk upgrade

Unless it is a chipped or TSOPed Xbox you can't do what you want to do. The Slayers disc won't boot with an empty, unlocked HDD installed, simple as that. In short, if it is a softmod , Chimp 261812 is still the simplest method of doing what you want. No HDD reformatting on PC necessary. Only time ...

Re: DVD drive problems on XBMC4Xbox under titan patched evox m8+ with UDMA5 enabled

Most problems with Xbox DVD drives have nothing to do with the software.

Generally its the laser that is dying, losing power and not being able to read any disc media. Gen...
