Re: Xbox Games section disappears when not connected to the

Re: Subtitles broken in mkv videos

You can subscrine to those threads (see bottom left corner when reading) and you can watch or comment on the ticket.
But yes, it is likely that it will not get fixed anytime soon.

Re: Casting Kodi to XBMC4XBOX

As far as I know playercorefactory.xml defines video players and can be used to add external video players - possibly the one you downloaded defines a video player that allows for outward streaming. Best way is to you look at what you download, or if you give us the original page with the steps we c...

Re: Casting Kodi to XBMC4XBOX

You could use VLC to stream your desktop to another URL - setup might be a little tricky, when choosing the destination (e.g. HTTP), use the Add button to actually define it. That's what you will put into a yourstream.strm on Xbox to play (e.g. http://yourpc:8080/screen). http://www.howtogeek.com/12...

Re: auto boot games / programs on startup

Rocky, I thought at first was a parameter name problem, then tried positional populating all the parameters and it complained about it (too many parameters). The rule of thumb in the past was that enhancements are brought over into XBMC4Xbox as-is, getting creative with the naming would just confuse...

Re: auto boot games / programs on startup

@slt2010 Xbox only runs one program at a time so when you run XBMC4Xbox the second time coming back from the game it has no idea whether that is the first time or the second time. I guess you can have the script write into a file "hey, I ran this game today at whatever time, so when it comes ba...

Re: Does fan run at 100% with games in XBMC?

That is because the Original Xbox flow was designed as single process, meaning that only one XBE runs as a time. XBMC4Xbox is one XBE, your game is another XBE, UnleashX is another one (in a way they're all "game" XBEs). Dashboards like XBMC4Xbox or UnleashX they just launch the games, aft...

Re: ignoreatstart not working

Never mind that, Rocky, not so important, I think I managed to replicate the issue and have an explanation for it as well. I was able to replicate the issue by starting a video using the built-in XBMC.PlayMedia() method, similar to how it is called from the skin XML code (the preview = 1 parameter i...

Re: ignoreatstart not working

Strangest thing, I set it up for one game (add the .xbe and the preview video) come back to the Games and that game disappears from the list - did it twice as I found it odd the first time.

I'll try the meantime XBMC.PlayMedia(media,1) from a Python script, see how that compares.

No worries, I've PMed him for a copy of the skin or the Home.xml to try it on or have a look at it.

Tried it with XBMC4Xbox 3.5.1 and standard Confluence Lite theme and could not replicate the issue.

Re: Can't delete files or folders?

Fair enough. Read your thread again and I guess the main issue was copying, not being able to delete it I guess was a side issue.
