XBMC4Gamers (Pet project)

Post by Rocky5 » Tue Apr 22, 2014 8:31 pm

OK, making this thread for my current mod, its a mod of XBMC, using python scripts & a custom skin (slik) (also I do not include XBMC you must get that yourself, I just have a batch that preps it for you)

What it does:
Allow kids to play xbox games with a nice poster view & not muck about with XBMC in any way or form, it can also be placed anywhere on the HDD.

Parent Controls:
Allows parents to install games, create profiles & change settings.

This mod also utilizes my custom python scripts. That allow each profile to have their own saves.

Update:
Just redownload the zip.

Setup/Installation:
  • 1) Download XBMC. *
    2) Place the XBMC folder inside the XBMC4Kids-master. **
    3) Double click "Build XBMC4Kids.bat"
    4) FTP the XBMC4Kids folder anywhere on your Xbox. ***

    *
    https://drive.google.com/folderview?pli ... JCZFE#list
    **
    Place the XBMC folder inside the "XBMC4Kids-master" folder.
    ***
    I would suggest leaving the "Enable individual save directories for each profile" disabled if you are using this as an application or only one profile.
Creating Profiles:
  • 1) Load the "Manage Profiles" profile.
    2) Select "Manage Profiles".
    3) Select Add Profile...
    4) Enter your desired name.
    5) Now select OK
    6) Again select OK
    7) Now select start fresh, for both options.
    8) And Log out. (R) Stick pushed in.
    10) Disable Edit Mode if you wish.
What not to do:
  • 1) Change profile names after creation, arses up my script. (it will create a new save folder)
    2) To transfer saves over to a new profile, change the folder name & the *.profile file inside the directory. *

    *
    Example:
    Profile name Connxtion, but I want to change it to Rocky5 & keep my saves.
    I find the "UDATA Connxtion" folder in "E:\" & I rename it to "UDATA Rocky5"
    I now rename the "Connxtion.profile" file inside to "Rocky5.profile". Done!
Edit Mode:
  • Enter key combination at the login screen:
    • Up, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, LEFT, RIGHT, RIGHT & A
    The above combination will also enable the Edit mode if its disabled.
    Remember to disable after changing stuff.

Initial release video
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggI7aaV28CA[/youtube]



Some Images, from the update:
Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image


208 Game Posters, banners, fanart, icons, thumbs and tbn files all ready for your Xbox.

This is a copy of my Game Posters _resources Directory. It consists of banners for all 208 games as well as thumbs, icons, posters and fanart where available.
It's been setup to work with Origins (as well as the default.xml synopsis format that maybe getting added back in) so compatibility with other skins is paramount in my eyes.

Note:
If you already have an install, I would recommend disabling the master lock, as its no longer needed.

To disable the master lock:
You need to be in Edit mode, then you log into your profile & head to "Setting > System > Master lock > Master lock code and settings > Master lock (Gamepad button combo) > disable"
  1. 05/01/2015
  2. Created a new python script to toggle Editmod on or off for the skin settings. (no more lock codes)
  3. Settings & Context menus are limited in User Mode, so the user cant change anything important.
  4. New custom Context menu for the Games views. (User mode only)
  5. Changed how I done the controls for certain menus. (B button now works in all areas bar the games view, when in User Mode)
  6. Updated the DVD2Xbox script to check for a default.xbe in the DVD drive before doing anything.
  7. Added a Build XBMC4Kids Update.bat

Rocky5 i havent really paid much notice to this thread until my son decided he wanted an XBMC4XBOX set up in his room and i have just had a look at all the great work you have put in to this :-) all i can say is WOW ....
Thank you for taking the time to provide this for the community .

Once i have finished transferring all the emulators and Xmugen across and updated to xbmc4xbox 3.5 i will be adding this skin as it will be perfect for his set up .
Also i noticed the xbox games and artwork (great job) and will be investigating some of these for sure ; any must have XBOX games you can reccommend for a 5 year old :-)

Cheers

P.S thanks for helping me out upgrading my xbox but i used HeXen in the end as i didn't have a blank CD to burn it on to and i already had a copy of Slayers and Hexen .I have a softmodded xbox next in line for upgrading and am going to use your disc for that when i get some blank CDs .

Stupid me , i have just read a bit more of your thread and realised this is not just a skin lol :oops:

Glad it's all up & working.

I will need to upload a small update that fixes the snow falling & a few minor things.

I will also grab you a list of the game I put on my 7 year olds Xbox, a lot of kids game.

Great thanks , he is playing retro stuff at the moment with me , xmugen / CO7.
As far as xbox games are concerned we have only got worm mayhem 4 , shrek and soul calibur ( great game ) .
I love the idea of having a 2tb box and a pile of retail games and loading them all up with this mod you have done :-) .
