I noticed in the packs you dont have _resources folders setup. So these new sets of images wont work with the Origins alternative images option.

Update: Ah ok I see your using my old set of thumbs before I _resourcerized it.

Batch to do the creating & moving of files to _recources

Code: Select all

@Echo off & Color 0B & Title Move files to _Resources folder

for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('dir /b /A:D "*"') do (

if not exist "%%a\_resources" md "%%a\_resources\artwork"

Echo ================================================================================

if exist "%%a\poster.jpg" echo  %%a Poster.jpg found.
if exist "%%a\poster.jpg" move "%%a\poster.jpg" "%%a\_resources\artwork\" >NUL

if exist "%%a\fanart.jpg" echo  %%a Fanart.jpg found.
if exist "%%a\fanart.jpg" copy "%%a\fanart.jpg" "%%a\_resources\artwork\" >NUL

if exist "%%a\icon.jpg" echo  %%a Icon.jpg found.
if exist "%%a\icon.jpg" move "%%a\icon.jpg" "%%a\_resources\artwork\" >NUL

if exist "%%a\thumb.jpg" echo  %%a Thumb.jpg found.
if exist "%%a\thumb.jpg" move "%%a\thumb.jpg" "%%a\_resources\artwork\" >NUL

copy "%%a\_resources\artwork\poster.jpg" "%%a\default.tbn" >NUL

Echo:
)

Echo ================================================================================

timeout /t 5 >NUL
Update:
Added a custom view to my XBMC4Kids, so I can do the resources easier, going to spend my spare time updating & creating proper resources for the game instead of just cutting the main thumb.
Here are a couple to show what I'm doing.

Thanks ................. I've been using the "confluence" skin for ages, but after going through a package of skins. Only the "Rapier" (not the most upto date version, that rips off "confluence"), and "Basic" have the basic set of features upfront that i'm looking for, since I only use the xbox for games, emulators, and apps, simple stuff. ("fanart" is way to boring, versus the original appeal of the box art, just my opinion, seems like all the newer stuff is hit or miss).
..........................
..........................
found some skins here also ... http://mirrors.xbmc.org/addons/gotham/ ... I grabbed an older pack, at first, some files to play with. You should see the name "skin" infront of the link to the download for the skin. http://mirrors.xbmc.org/addons/, more skin files if you follow the various links, not sure if they are all for the xbox or not.

add the skin folders into your skin directory in xbmc, actually, that doesn't work for me. I get a version number error, these skins are upto date as far as I can tell, may require changing the version number, or a different version of xbmc. requires some experimentation ....................... I'll report back if there is any way I got one to actually work.

EDIT - GO IT WORKING
ADD TO SKIN FOLDER.rar
(226 Bytes) Downloaded 240 times
just add that file to whatever skin you want to use, to the root of the skin folder, there's a whole bunch of skins to go through, and some may not work properly on xbmc 3.5.3.

(I'll see how many run good, so maybe I'll have a pack of skins soon to share)

I apologize up front for being such a noob, but I hope someone here can help me with this skin. I am new to XBMC, I have been using evox and unleashX all these years. I saw this skin on someones YouTube video which made me want to switch to XBMC just so I could use it. I got the skin on the XBMC (Version 3.5.3 btw), I figured out how to install the emulators and games properly so everything would work, but the trouble I am having is getting the icons to appear on the dashboard, or basically in general getting my xbox to look like all these cool pics you all have been sharing. I tried setting up a "_resources->Artwork" folder structure as recommended although, that seemed to be more for games than emulators and I do plan to set up the artwork on my games at some point in the future, but right now cant get past emus. I tried just replacing the icons that come with the emulators with the ones shared by "Dom" in his original thread, still cant get them to show up on the dash. Sorry, I have no way to screenshot my xbox. The one REALLY weird thing is that I installed Snes9xBox and when I added it to box 18, it showed up with the default icon that comes with that program. I completely deleted that icon to replace it with the one I got from here, and the old one shows up still. I renamed the new one to have the same name as the old one, and the old one still shows up... even though its been deleted. I know this is a total noob thing, but if anyone could just give me some step by step on how to get custom icons working for emulators on the dash, it would be super appreciated. Thank you.

Delete the following folder.
Q:\USERDATA\Thumbnails\Programs
restart the Xbox.

Ok, thank you for the quick reply. I deleted the folder, restarted the xbox, and the old zsnexbox icon is still there. Additionally, I still have no icon for NES (I tried both FCEultra and mednafenx). Again, XBMC is brand new to me as of yesterday and all of the instructions I have read on both threads relating to this skin seem to kind of assume that I know the first half of the instructions and these instructions pick up on the last half of the process. Im sure there is some really small step somewhere that once someone tells me, everything else will just click together. I can screenshot my PC to show you what files/folders/etc I have and where on my xbox if that would help you to see what I am missing. Thanks again for your help.

Hello everyone and thank you Rocky5 for this fabulous work! I love this "skin", especially for previews and synopsis.

I am trying to make a pack for the 1000 games of the XBox and I will need some information:

1) What are the exact dimensions of the images (poster, thumbs, screenshots ...)?

2) Do you have a script to automate a little things like creating thumbs, banner, fanart ...?

3) Same for the default.xml, is there a scrapper to do them?

For now, my pack is 8GB and contains mostly default.tbn (cover front in png), 600 previews, 1000 posters and a few fanart + screenshots. As soon as it is ready, I will post it so that everyone can enjoy it;)

Thank you in advance for your answers and sorry for my bad English, I am French ...

cordially

[EDIT] Adding 900 banners :)

Another question: is it mandatory to create a profile? Because it would be simpler for me to be directly the page of the games rather than to choose a profile. Thank you in advance.

Hi, if you go back to the first page of this thread Rocky has posted the dimensions of all of these in a reply. I would be very interested in your pack if it's nearly there. Sorry tried to paste the sizes from rockys post but I'm on the phone and it won't work.
