Re: Cleaning up my C Drive

My recommendation is do not touch your C:\drive at least not until you get some reliable specialist advice. Your main dash launch XBE is already on the C:\drive (evoxdash.xbe). I guess you want to move the whole installation to C:\ and the obvious question to ask is why? Standard practice for XBMC4X...

Re: ACL DVD2Xbox

Good find that old WayBack article: seems authoritative so ACL = Action Control List is what it is from now on. Interested about that stuff on the Riddick ACL because that was my first encounter with a game that won't display properly when installed until it is ACL patched. As I found out myself you...

Re: Evox skins

Apologies for bumping this thread but I have been going through the skin pack and installing the ones I didn't have, both UX and EvoX. I came across an oddity with the UX skin: xbox media solution . The skin works fine when installed but I've found it impossible to open the skin.xml using the UX fil...

Re: ACL DVD2Xbox

That was one of the sources I actually found in my own researches and one of them that prompted this thread. Thanks for the link but I'm not convinced; access control, auto-correct and even action control are terms that could overlap in meaning because what the DVD2Xbox ACLs apparently do. DVD2Xbox ...

Re: Blackbolt Classic Final 2.0 on new XBMC4XBOX

I have posted about this elsewhere but I thought it might be a good idea to add the information to this thread where I originally posted about that "Visualizations" 'preview' display issue with this skin. I'm no XBM4Xbox skinning expert so in the absence of help here I had to work through all the XM...

ACL DVD2Xbox

I hope this is the best place to ask this but does anyone here know for certain the exact meaning of "ACL" in relation to its use with the DVD2 Xbox app? In general computing ACL means Access Control List and I've always assumed that is what it meant when used for this purpose too. I've even used th...

Re: Xbox stuck in boot loop

You should be able to reset the XBMC to default settings using:- https://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/wiki/Settings Try that first. However if the console has been region changed and the display screen does not support the resolution eg. a PC monitor which does not support PAL interlaced resolutions you hav...

Re: Wide icons for emulators

What specific emulator(s) and wide icons are you talking about? Wide icon dimensions are typically 758x140 24bit and if (re)named to "default.tbn" and put in any emulator, app or game folder they should display as the default icon whatever display option you set in the skin. The fact is they are are...

Re: New to xmbc need help please

Welcome; I think you mean 38% of the HDD space, not 38% of the memory. The thing to do first to find how your Xbox is modded ie. whether it is softmodded or chipped. That will determine the advice you need. If it is chipped there could be added external switches but the only way to be 100% sure is t...

Re: Evox skins

I've checked that 625 UnleashX ski pack pretty thoroughly. Although I might have missed some there are at least 85 EvoX skins included. There is also a set of Xecuter 3 skins, two Mame skins and, interestingly, a handful of what appear to be dual dash skins ie. ones which include both config.xml and...

Re: Evox skins

There are more than just a few EvoX skins in that pack. It is a pain separating them out and I'm certainly not going to go through 625 skins myself at this time but I've found over a dozen of those just listed from A - C which are EvoX skins. Amongst them are "ArcX", "Armageddon", "ass1" :roll:, "At...

Re: Evox skins

That skin pack linked too is actually named as 625 UnleashX skins. After a quick perusal many of the skins are UX ones (identified by their config.xml) but there are a number of EvoX skins (identified by their evox.ini) mixed in too. I recommend the "blackbolt_consolev4" as a good-ish EvoX skin. I a...

Re: [RELEASED] XBMC Origins v1.0.0

Good, you obviously did/do know what you're doing setting the XBMC dash on F:\ to boot using a shortcut.xbe with a path to it replacing the original evoxdash.xbe. The recommended method. I posted the last part of the previous post later as, after I'd thought about it; I was worried about how exactly...

Re: [RELEASED] XBMC Origins v1.0.0

Its is actually quite simple. Usually it is set up just for the E:\drive so to get XBMC4Xbox to 'see' a particular folder somewhere else you just need to add that folder, wherever it is, as a path. Go to the main menu, click Programs and then click the controller's WHITE button. This brings up a con...

Re: [RELEASED] XBMC Origins v1.0.0

Origins is a skin and all those files and folders are the elements that make up that skin. They should all be kept in their 'parent' folder, likely named "XBMC Origins". That "XBMC Origins" folder is what you put in your main XBMC4Xbox installation "skin" folder. Restart XBMC4Xbox after you've copie...

Re: Menu Text not displaying on Games [Solved]

Glad you found what the problem was. I don't think there is much chance anyone else here could have known what it was as it sounds very niche. If you only have the stock and the few (<20) ACL patches you get with a typical DVD2Xbox install it might well do nothing. I would have thought you'd still g...

Re: Menu Text not displaying on Games

Obviously it is not a HDD formatting issue so that is very good news. Problem is now finding where the problem is in the game and why it should apparently repeat for what you'd think must be different downloads which are unlikely all to be suffering the same fault, if that is what it is. Sorry I sho...

It worries me that you've said you have hundreds of games on the HDD and you're using a 2TB HDD. Please tell me that F:\ and G:\ were correctly formatted for equal space. They should both be exactly the same total size, <1GB. If you are not sure use XBPartioner v1.3 to check; just to check, do not r...

Re: Menu Text not displaying on Games

Sounds weird - you are talking about the in game menus having the problem, not XBMC4Gamers or other dashboard menus? What other games (PAL/NTSC) display with this problem? Are you using a AV Composite cable or Component cable? I doubt it matters as regards this problem but it is not clear; "RBY" is ...
