Re: Unleash x switch xbmc dash

If you want to use something that is optimized for an older XBMC version then the safest and I think most sensible solution is to install the older version of XBMC as an app. I would not recommend 'downgrading' your main XBMC dash to an earlier version. I have a mirror version of v3.5.3 installed as...

Re: Xbox - Is this a modded dashboard?

It is impossible to tell whether the Xbox is actually modded or not from that picture. The shot shows a demo games' disc main menu and that is what it will look like whether played from the retail or a modded console dash. I actually recognised the demo disc as a version of one that came free with t...

Re: Skin project create or modify

Personally I gave up on any idea I had about creating a XBMC skin. I have found it difficult enough to work out what to edit amongst the dozens of XMLs used to create my preferred XBMC skin (the updated Xbox-Classic) just for some relatively simple adjustments/corrections I wanted to make. There is ...

Re: Unleash x switch xbmc dash

Using HeXEn to replace the dash would have been what I would have suggested for a chipped machine too. It is not clear what you want now: is it to make the XBMC splash screen appear slower or remain longer? With UnleashX, particularly if you have a large amount of dash content set to load on start, ...

Re: [Artwork] Emulator Icons: Origins Style

Talking of fonts as I was earlier I discovered I was wrong about there not being a 'full' original Xbox font. The font name to look for is Xbold . I'm not sure whether it is an official font or a user created one but at the very least it matches the official Xbox characters we do have and the others...

Re: Can I FTP Extras Disc to Xbox?

The problem mentioned with the Extras disc is almost certain just a media incompatibility issue. Philips are the worst disc drives for compatibility IMHO but that is only based on my own experience of the single, old, secondhand Philips' disc drive I own. Incidentally that also came in a v1.4 Xbox. ...

Re: Selecting a BIOS

I've never understood why anyone should really be bothered with which BIOS they had as long as it gives the necessary functionality you want. With a v1.6 you're pretty limited anyway as only the EvoXm8plus.v16.137 series (1mb, 512K, 256K) and the 512K only x2.5035.v16plus.137 being the only two type...

Re: Korean Xbox my dad got me as a kid

HeXEn = good choice. However I've not used HeXEn to install a dash on a chipped machine so I do not have any direct experience on doing that. It should just have a menu option somewhere to install a dash. It should not be difficult and if something goes wrong, being a chipped machine, it will still ...

Re: Korean Xbox my dad got me as a kid

What sort of apps and services are you talking about because the updating of the UnleashX (UX) dash, except in its very early days, has never really done much except correct relatively minor glitches. The final version: v584 is actually more flawed than some of the previous ones which is why I use v...

Re: Korean Xbox my dad got me as a kid

You have to be sure whether it is a softmod or a chipped machine. It could even be a TSOP. I do not know enough about Rocky5's Softmodding Tools/Extras etc to know if that behaviour is proof that it is not a softmod. But as far as I know the only way of determining whether is has been chipped is to ...

Re: Help Cleaning up my E Drive

TDATA at 3.48GB is obviously the culprit, the rest looks pretty normal to me. A lot of Xbox games don't write anything or comparatively little to TDATA. However that is where DLC is usually installed. I've just checked the, still reasonably easily found, all Xbox DLC pack which includes both updates...

Re: Help Cleaning up my E Drive

Coming back to this a bit late and looking at the later E:\drive post I'd guess the Dash file there is your XBMC4Gamers install which suggests that if it is your main dash the evoxdash.xbe is a shortcut to that folder. But without more information on the contents and my lack of knowledge as regards ...

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...
