Check if the partition where you have your xbmc4gamers copy have enough space for storing the artwork installer,
it is not recommended to use partition C: as it have limited disk space.

Now, I believe the artwork installer checks the game-id to determine what game you have in your dirs.
So possible you have a default.xbe with a unknown game-id --- some cracked versions with crack intro's infront of them
might do this.

If that is not the case, then maybe you care to do some manual work ?

Go to your xbmc4gamers Artwork installer dir with the filemanager:

Mine is located at this location:

E:\xbmc\system\scripts\Xbox Artwork Installer\Artwork\ntsc\Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance 2\

Copy the "_resource" dir and the default.tbn + fanart.jpg into the root dir of you baldurs gate 2 game directory.

Then it should work.

(Not that most of the game artwork are ntsc versions, only the PAL only games are located in the pal dir.)

Cheers,

Are you on the newest version of XBMC4GAMERS? I had the same error until I updated to the latest version

I know this is a very old tread but I have a couple questions on XBMC4Gamers dash...
1. How do you refresh the cover artwork? "I cant get the default.tbn to show up" I copied halo 2 from dvd2xbox and it has the default box art cover even tho I added the artwork _resources and default.tbn. I have tried clearing the cache and clearing the thumbnails but it still has the default cover artwork.

2. is there anyway to get the system temp from the XBMC4Gamers dash? If not it would be a cool feature to add that. Like Freestyle dash 3 on Xbox 360.

Thanks for any suggestions or comments

Press Up on the game list and enable the resources box. Three in from the left.

not currently but it’s something you don’t need to know as the Xbox will tell you, by ramping up the fan or shutting down :lol:

Hello, I wanted to write that for a few days I have been using the program and it's fun !! my question is whether the author of the program will release any updates or amendments or additions?
ps. Can XBMC4Gamers be used as the main loadaer in the future?
i.e. all finished files from xbmc4 3.5.3 move and replace from the main XBMC folder on the disk? ;)

And you can ask to send this skin to xbmc4Gamers kids?

here are some actions on my part.
exp 1: Games white button on the joystick, choose a thumbnail / image search / browse / directory path. No action
exp 2: in the source file, Games, replacing the path of the line <thumbnail>
and nothing either .profiles - <thumbnail pathversion = "1"> E: \ _ resources icon \ games \ Games-T.png </ thumbnail>.

Hello everyone. Does anyone know how can I remove this framed in a red on the picture below? I want it to be 100% transparent, something like when you go to Synopsis and you can see full fanart background. Does anyone know how can I do that?

Toggle the fanart button again and it will use the fog.jog file.

Hi,

Thanks for this great project. I have a old version xbmc4gamers without new artwork option and I want to update it.
I can connect my Xbox in ftp to my pc with automatique (DHCP) but when I try to update in the xbmc4players update menu I have this message : “error no network access please check your Ethernet cable”
It’s possible to update it with ftp?

I’m having the same issue. Upon boot, a notification pops up stating that new version 1.3 is available. My internet is totally connected but when I go to the downloader, it states the no network access error and to check my Ethernet connection. I can’t download anything and this was never an issue before...

Was fortunate to get in touch with Rocky5 himself. Download the latest prebuild:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1je41mK ... hYFz2/view

Go to your Q:\system\USERDATA on your xbox using an FTP client and copy that folder onto your desktop. Now delete all of your files on the Q: partition and replace it with all the files in the XBOX4Gamers prebuilt folder and then replace the USERDATA folder with the one you copied on your desktop to keep your settings, profile, etc. reboot your xbox and you should be all good.
