About Me

  1. So two months ago I was really enjoying playing doom on my Xbox via Odamex and found out that it can also directly be run through the use of shortcuts. So I made some shortcuts for the wads that I wanted to play and put them in a folder. When I tried to add artwork (_resources) to it they don't show up at the hombrew screen but inside of the folder (also it doesn't show the name of the folder) : Now I don't think this is supported but I wanted to know if there's a way to pull it off. Xbmc probably requires a default.xbe inside the folder for it to not get recognized as "just a folder" and show the name and artwork. What I was thinking is that would be possible to make it read some dummy xbe and use that to recognize the folder's name and artwork? (But then launching the shortcuts might not be possible) Also for some reason it reads the _resources folder as an item and it's subdirectories as well. (If there's a way to make xbmc ignore/don't do this that would be great as well) : https://i.postimg.cc/7PM1FTMc/IMG-20231124-134650.jpg (Shortcuts works fine tho)
  2. New splash screen. Several colors. splash.7z
  3. Hi all I have a customer that want's the original M$ dash as a app and I can easily set that with a short cut but I am having issues making the artwork to display in xbmc4gamers ( I had a look at the stuff from Rocky5's GitHub on making the images needed and that went over my head). I have looked at the artwork installer but there is nothing there so I am hoping some one here has made the appropriate files I can copy to the folder for the M$ dash. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  4. Hello all, I was changing settings on my dash and it seems that this - might - have caused my issue. Regardless of the xbox being powered off with "black button - shutdown" or the main power button on the xbox itself, when I turn on the socket at the wall/power strip the xbox is powering up and turning on. I had a look through options and setting, but cannot see anything related to this. Can anyone tell me what I might have changed to affect this? Cheers!
  5. Hello! To start, I have successfully completed a stellar HD+ install on my 1.0 Xbox. I was using it all fine with no issues and a stock HDD for a few weeks now. I finally decided to upgrade my HDD to a 4TB for game storage and run a custom dashboard. Went though the process via the Project Stellar tool and the drive reads correctly and is formatted the right way. I successfully installed the dashboard through FTP and downloaded the stock one through the downloader (the main reason I went with this dash was for the downloader) and now my disc drive won't read any games that I know work. I have tested multiple IDE Cables (both 40 and 80 wire) and 3 dvd drives that I know work for sure and none are able to read discs anymore in this console. I'm still fairly new to this scene so I do not know what to troubleshoot. I've tried google and found nothing so I figure I'll try the site where all the Pro's are at who may have experienced this issue before. Let me know if I can provide any more info to help figure this out. Thanks
  6. OK, I have tried many times to add a .jpg picture as my profile pic. I have ftpd it over and I pick it as a profile pick but it shows up blank. My jpg is 315 x 274 pixels. Also there is no preview. Also I can select other jpgs stored on my Xbox and they work. Any suggestions? Thanks
  7. Hello All I've been looking for this theme for days.... I have seen it mentioned elsewhere but no link, only the posters.jpg. How do I get the green footer to appear? Is it in the Textures.xpr? I've lookd through it and can't find an image that looks like its this footer so I can replace it and repack my own XPR. Also, on the root menu I can only get flat jpg posters and when replacing with 3D png's in Textures.xpr its flattened to jpg. When I change the view to 3D I can't get the image to change to my png 3D covers. I've tried _Resources but thats ignored. Thanks in advance
  8. Do you know where I can download themes for xbmc4gamers besides that ones available in download section in xbmc4gamers?
  9. Hi all, just checking in to let you know that a new theme was just wrapped up. If you use XBMC4Gamers you can download and drag/drop to your build. This theme (like the others i've done) will be found on the downloader. It's not there yet, but the files can be found here: https://github.com/Team-Resurgent/Resurgent-Skin-XBMC4GAMERS. On this build i added additional root/programs menu icons so hopefully will cover most of the categories you guys use. Folder names supported when you add source. 128MB Ram Apps/Applications Arcade Collections Dash/Dashboard/Dashboards Demos Emulators Games Homebrew Movies PC Games Ports (uses same icon as PC games) Proto/Prototypes Ram Xtras (uses same icon as 128MB Ram) Vault (uses same icon as Collections) here is also a video preview for you.
  10. I have a softmodded 1.6 XBOX with Rocky5 1.1.9, I have the Softmod (UnleashX) dash as default and XBMC4Gamers (latest version - updated after installing) and XBMC-Emustation installed as Apps in E:\Applications. I have a 2TB HD with F & G evenly split at just under 1TB each. G is blank, I've been FTPing games into F:\Games Everything's been working great, I'll upload a batch of games, load XBMC4Gamers, run the artwork update script, then check out the Games section. Afterwards I'll load XBMC-Emustation and rescan the games, then check out the XBOX games listing. Tonight, after finishing another small batch of games, I went to do the same procedure above except this time when launching XBMC4Gamers, it shows a blank screen instead of the XBMC4Gamers logo. LED changes the color I set for that dash - so it's trying to load. It then exits back to UnleashX (or actually probably boots back to UnleashX). I've tried powering down / rebooting a few times, booting straight into XBMC4Gamers (using a Dashloader Customizer button), etc. XBMC-Emustation has no issue loading. I also tried launching XBMC4Gamers from the file manager directly, same issue - black screen, then back to UnleashX Extra info, not sure if it's relevant (seems like it shouldn't matter) I have 255 game folders in F:\Games, E:\UDATA\ has 256 folders. I auto-login to my only user created profile on XBMC4Gamers. The only thing that changed between XBMC4Gamers working and not loading anymore was FTPing more games into F:\Games. Are there any weird limits of folders or anything like that? Can the XBMC4Gamers XBE or any files needs to load get corrupted? I'm at a loss why it would suddenly just stop loading? I looked in the e:\applications\xbmc4games\system\xbmc.log and there are no new entries since the last time I played a game in XBMC4Gamers
  11. Hi all thought id post my personal xbmc4gamers 2tb build. Feel free to post your own setups as its always good to see other builds. https://youtu.be/kn6qUDgqhaU
  12. I had a little trouble figuring this out, so i figured i would write this up. 1) install XBMC4GAMERS 2) launch it and setup your profile 3) go to settings, the downloader 4) update/install URL downloader (this is auto) 5) go to artwork 6) install XBOX artwork installer 7) when asking where to install it, install it into E:\apps\ 8. Use the left arrow to switch from games to applications 9) Run xbox artwork installer 10) Reboot and your artwork should be there. Give it some time as it caches everything.
  13. Hi, new to X4G and have recently downloaded and installed v1.3.001 also downloaded artwork installer v1.9.4 and installed this to a F:\Artwork directory. It's working but I do have a couple of questions on getting it setup as I want. In youtube vids the game artwork is like a cover of the original game case but on my version it's more of an icon - is there any way I can switch to the case style images? Again on youtube as you switch between games the background has also changed to a game relevant image however on my setup it's a plain blue background. I've found where you can set the background colour or to a fixed image but how do I get it to be a dynamic image? I have had a search online and it suggests toggling the fanart to on but I haven't been able to find that option Thanks
  14. Hello. Sorry for my bad english. I have a question. I use Cerbios+Xbmc4Gamers+3Tb Sata HDD and now I have a lot of space! I really like Xbmc4Gamers, but besides games, I would like to add a collection of DVD movies to the disc. I just created folder "Movies" and added a link to the file (VIDEO_TS.IFO) to my favorites, but it's not very pretty or informative. Can't make a library like with games? Or at least a preview of the favorites menu disc? I read "wiki/Advanced_Configuration" but couldn't figure it out. Help me please.
  15. Hi Guys I am new here and have soft modded my og xbox and installed XBMC4Gamers dash, however some games are just not being recognized by the dash. I have tried so many different solutions, such as copying from different flash drives, hdd.....etc, nothing helped. When ripping the games from a disc, they work fine, and most work ok after copy, but some just show these weird names as you can see in the screenshot. Xbox is running a 1TB hdd, for those games that wont work, artwork installer just marks them as being corrupt. Has anyone else had this issue, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  16. I went to turn on my xbox and it keeps telling me to calibrate the screen when booting into XBMC4GAMERS. I calibrate it and then it tell me it needs to restart for the changes to take effect. I restart it and the same thing happens again. It says Script Failed in top left corner. Ive attached the log if anyone can help. xbmc.log
  17. So I have all my games working and have tried XBMC-Emustation & XBMC4Gamers, Ive updated the dash to the newest version (tried the stable and non stable version). Ive downloaded and updated the Xbox Artwork Installer but every time i run it, it starts and adds the artwork but it stops in the middle of the of the D's in my library. The percentage bar hits 26% and then it quits and just sits on the artwork installer menu. I can run it again but the same thing just keeps happening. Is there a way to just manually add the artwork using fatxplorer, this is the last step. I just need the artwork so i can run Xbmc4Gamers as my dash and have it look amazing!
  18. Usually they have a blank icon and the name looks like e.g. PGR2 [!] (i.e Project Gotham Racing 2) and when I go to the install folder and launch the .xbe manually it launches correctly, the issue also extends to identifying the artwork, as the games with this problem all have .xbns etc and seemingly the correct artwork. If I try to launch these 'blank' games from the Games menu the screen just goes blank for a minute and loads back into Xbmc. Any idea what's causing this? Thought I had a number of bad rips but turns out the shortcuts just aren't working for some reason
  19. Having lots of trouble getting my xbox updated. Its a 1.0, I modded with an xecuter2 back in the day and the switched to a softmod at some point. The xecuter still works but is running an unknown bios (it looks like I compiled it myself) and its booting evox 3935 off of the root of E:. Hard drive is an 80gb maxtor ide that doesn't have any apparent issues. I updated whatever softmod I was running to Rocky5's and installed XBMC4Gamers from the extras disk to E:/XBMC4Gamers/. I also tried the pre-built build of github in E:Applications. Both crash the same way with the same error running off the modchip and softmod: xbmc.log: https://pastebin.com/Tx41wxwk It loads the splash and immediately crashes. It loads the same way when holding White+Y Everything else (games, apps, emulators and homebrew) seems to be working just fine. I cleared the cache, made new empty TDATA and UDATA. There are some really old builds of xbmc on it that run fine. I did my other 1.1 unchipped xbox yesterday with no issue. I'm stumped.
  20. Hello friends What's the easiest way to hide the applications menu so that the kids don't mess about with the apps? I did rename the "Apps" folder thinking if there was no apps then the menu wouldn't show but it still appears and (of course) says invalid path when selected. Thanks in advance
  21. Hello all !!! This is a new version of my resources pack for XBMC4Gamers (https://mega.nz/#F!5wUBQZSa!44MF7TL02pTjOsHEdTCrtg 12Gb on Mega). It was based on Wikipedia for list of XBox titles, completed with Modded / Unreleased / Ripped games (1106 games !!!) It's easy-to-use : download "Resources4XBMC v1.0", extract it and view the full list of HDD ready files then transfer as needed ! This pack contains few covers, banners, icons, cd, fanarts, previews and synopsis (thanks Cian Cunningham for his work) . I think it the most complete pack you can find and it works with all XBMC 3.5.3 or above once Rocky5's custom version (XBMC4Gamers and XBMC4Kids). What's new in this version : - Added more covers, fanarts, previews... - Better quality for covers, fanarts and preview ; - Add synopsis by Cian Cunninghan ; - Separates folders for modded, ripped, retail and unreleased games ; - And many some little things :) Many thanks to Rocky5 for his programs and Cian Cunningham for his work. Any issues anyone finds I can fix and update accordingly when I have time. I hope this enhances your XBMC4Gamers setup.
  22. Hey I know you can add main menu options with custom folder paths but when I set it to an app and select it, it opens the folder instead of the app inside it. Is there any way to add a path to a specific file?
  23. I've installed XBMC4Gamers and really like it. Can you change the color of the background at the choosing a profile screen? Also what do you all use for the thumbnails for Applications, Emulators, Games, and Homebrew. Thanks
  24. Hi When i try to install an update for a game i got an error message just after the dash said "retreiving eeprom hdd key" can you help ? thx
  25. As the only thing left bothering me on my build this maybe an easy fix. How does one make the /D: image this disc shown below in the photos.
