Re: Xbox .x files for boot logos

Here are a few packs of full boot skins for Ind-Bios that I found in some random corner of the Internet. Some of them also have xlogo.x and text.bmp. Some of the ind-bios color themes are reused. Out of the available .x files out there, the skull is a personal favorite of mine. (found in the f*** bo...

Re: Ideas for modern-day applications of XBMC4XBOX?

I've now got about 10,000 music videos downloaded and I finally got all the *.264 and .VOB files converted into formats playable/watchable on the Xbox, taking up 688 GB total. (i used this method: https://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=697&start=60#p38403) A lot of them are .mpegs, a...

Re: Ideas for modern-day applications of XBMC4XBOX?

Yeah, his was a little more expensive so I ended up going with the Trusty board. It seems like N64 Freak's boards are well-reviewed overall though.

EDIT: Just got my Trusty board today, and it came with a speed switch and works fine.

Re: Ideas for modern-day applications of XBMC4XBOX?

Awesome, I always had trouble playing most 720p files though. I'll keep that in mind for encoding.

I have a Trusty 1.4GHz board board on the way but I'll try to post a guide for doing it on a stock xbox setup, once I figure out some way to organize these ~4000 music videos

Re: Ideas for modern-day applications of XBMC4XBOX?

That's kind of the direction I'm thinking in; I was considering using separate XBE applications that you can copy-paste, each with a config file, to be able to launch XBMC in different modes from a non-XBMC dash. I don't think that what you're saying about separate XBMC installs should be necessary....

Re: Ideas for modern-day applications of XBMC4XBOX?

Thanks, yeah it seems like people were complaining about not having it in Kodi at some point... Nice post... The xbox will still play HD video, you just have to use a non cpu intensive codec and container... pretty good quallity 720p AVI looks very good on the xbox, I did also look into transcoding ...

Re: Ideas for modern-day applications of XBMC4XBOX?

Like you OP, i use Xbox for Burnout 3 and Coinops. I have 250Gb on a SATA HDD (with sata-pata adapter). I use XBMC for music and video, toghether with a Raspberry Pi. Nice :) Yeah, it's one of the only games that I keep coming back to over the years. Even Paradise didn't really do it for me... :gee...

Re: Ideas for modern-day applications of XBMC4XBOX?

I've been doing some poking around as to what kinds of image media sets are out there to work with... - Wallpapers: There are a few siterips out there, and random wallpaper packs assembled by users. Downloading and combining a few packs (and running dupe detection) can make for a cool image library....

Ideas for modern-day applications of XBMC4XBOX?

Back when you could get SD-quality video of anything, XBMC was amazing thing to have, almost a decade ahead of its time. Silly as it sounds, I have a ton of memories associated with XBMC, and it will always have a place in my heart. It's now 2016, and I still have my xbox hooked up to the component ...

Re: A fun autoexec.py streaming radio/screensaver startup ha

Thanks, yours is much cleaner (and I learned a little bit from it too!) I had also posted a slightly earlier version of the script somehow and forgot to escape the quotes in "<slideshowpath pathversion="1">", it should have been "<slideshowpath pathversion=/"1/">"; the file must have gotten mixed up...

A fun autoexec.py streaming radio/screensaver startup hack

What it does This script starts a randomly selected streaming radio station at startup (some examples are provided below.) It also sets the slideshow screensaver to use a large number of images, which I got from a wallpaper torrent, also listed below. It starts a random slideshow of the images a fe...
