XBmc4gamers Ready To Install

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

Does any of you has already an XBMC4Gamers ready to be ftp to the console, I have tried XBMC4XBOX-33032 which is the latest version of XBMC together with the XBMC4Kids patch, don't if I should call it a patch, FTP it and got lots of errors, is there already a standalone XBMC4Gamers ready to be FTP without the ArtWork etc, like a small package which we can add artwork as we add our collection.

 

Thanks

Yes, Googlei is your friend. It's on Rocky5s GitHub. It's come a long way since you were looking at it I think.  Download the prebuilt. Do not build yourself. 

 

Please login or register to see this link.

 

Here's some instructions.

 

 (This is also valid for xbmc-emustation)

So to set it all up FTP the pre built xbmc4gamers folder to the root of E. Don't build it yourself, that's only really for expert users that want to change source and recompile. Have all your xbox games in F/Games and/or G/Games. That's where the artwork install script looks for games. Press the black button and go to settings and downloader, you might need to update the downloader under the update tab. Run the cache formatter from the downloader first  (good practice). Download the artwork installer. You'll need 500mb free on E for it to download and extract. Go to skin settings and run the artwork installer script. Let it overwrite existing artwork when asked. The first time the dash boots it could take about 5 minutes or more to scan your games in, this only happens the first time. It's not frozen so just leave it.

If you want to make it your default dash (Hard mod/TSOP):

Use John Conns dashloader. Take this default.xbe and name it evoxdash.xbe and replace your existing evoxdash.xbe on the root of C. I suggest naming your existing to something else to back it up just in case and then delete after you get xbmc4gamers to boot. 

Please login or register to see this link.

 

Bear in mind that any game with the same default.xbe will get the same artwork. So go through your games and make sure they are all good. This happens with some games that are usually special editions and people just dump a load of games from a big download on. Need for speed underground and underground black edition, midnight club dub edition and dub edition remix are two examples. These are the same game so you would not need both anyway but they would take the same art. You can manually fix any of these by navigating to xbmc4gamers/system/ scripts/Xbox artwork installer via file explorer on the left side and on the right side of file explorer navigate to the game with incorrect artwork and copy the right one over. All artwork is downloaded to that path. 

Also check out the artwork link on the he GitHub. It has emulator artwork and some special edition Xbox game covers. Steel books etc. Jade empire alt cover is nice.

Thanks Cian,

It was precisely this what I was looking for, also the default.xbe to evoxdash.xbe to make default dashboard boot as replace the pre installed one,

Btw is there a way to uninstall Evoxdash board is really is a useless dashboard laying on the C.

Thought that XBMC4Gamers needed to be installed on E:\App on not on the root of the system, alright easy tutorial.

My E: drive has only 4 GB of space, can I install XBMC4GAMERS in root of F: or G: instead?

 

There are lots of features/files that you can download right from in the XBMC4Gamers dashboard and the artwork download alone is huge.  Definitely install the dashboard onto the F (or G).  (Though I do use F for the main dashboard, I also add a small dash (i.e. UnleashX) onto my C for redundancy.)

From what i've read, it's best to leave the XBMC-Emustation on the E: drive and the artwork, roms and media files on F: or G:. 

Something about the emulators running better of the E: drive then F:

So, I'm thinking about giving this a try too.  I have a TSOP mod, xbox v1.0, x2.5035 f and G bios.  I have a couple questions.  I assume I can FTP XBMC4Gamers to the root of E and run it, try it out from there, then make it a default dash later if I choose, using the renamed default.xbe mentioned earlier in the thread, right?

 

I have all my xbox games currently on F/Games.  I also have a few emulators and CoinOps 7 Massive on F/emus.   What could i do with the emulators and CoinOps in XBMC4Gamers?  And, if I choose to make it the default dash, how could I run UnleashX if I wanted to once in a while?

So, I went ahead and did it.  Man! What an amazing interface....  Rocky5 is the man!  
 

I made it my boot dash, now I want to know how to make an access for running UnleashX if I ever want to. Is that as simple as creating an “UnleashX” folder in E/Apps, copying my original evoxdash.xbe into it and renaming it default.xbe?

 

And if I want to be able to leave CoinOps via “Dashboard” in the menu, can I just do the same thing with my “new” evoxdash.xbe, by copying it to /emus/coinops7/dashboard/

I’m still hoping someone will answer if that will work. 
 

I have a few other questions too. It’s my understanding that 2TB is as big as I can go in an Xbox. Since I am at 2TB, is there any reason to leave xb partitioner and configmagic on the hd?

I did a TSOP and a fresh install to a new hd with HeXEn. Now that I installled xbmc4gamers, do I now have two separate instances of dvd2xbox?  And can I get rid of one (probably the one from HeXEn)?  I’d like to know what I need and what I don’t from the HeXEn install. Like the EvoX dash I’ll never use.

Anyone beside me experiencing issues when installing the Fanart pack?

Each time I try, the download takes forever and once finished freezes while extracting...

One time extraction started successful but I needed to shutdown the Xbox, so maybe this messed sth up?

      I’m still getting to grips with using the og Xbox in 2020, well setting it up.
      I’ve got a USB powered WiFi bridge that plugs into the Ethernet port, and is powered directly from the console.
      But the console starts up quicker than the the bridge can connect.
      Is there an option I’m missing that will force XBMC4Gamers to check the network again and then it’ll get an IP address?

      I would like to remove the play count in XBMC4Gamers. If it's possible, info please.

      So I got Slayer 2.7 properly running on a DVD-R, but I don't know where to start from .
      I know some options can ruin the HDD or the XBox so I would need to know what is the correct installation procedure. I have a 120Gb HDD (a compatible Maxtor, according to this list Please login or register to see this link. that is connected instead of the previous one (that works fine with Evox already running), but I literally don't know what to do once the functions list of the installer appears on screen.  For example, I don't know about Kernel compatibility, if the HDD is to be considered as RETAIL or UPGRADE/BIG HD, etc.
      I'm not completely sure, but I think my consolle is Hard Modded, because I've read somewhere that if the seals have holes around the screws or if the screen flickers a bit then it means it's a hard mode, but again I'm not sure. I don't really want to touch the internal part of the console more than the necessary to check it out (I've been told the modchip is visible somewhere), honestly.
      Any suggestion from somebody who already installed it?
