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.

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.

I always keep a backup dash, just in case. Then I can used my modchip bios to change the dash path to the backup dash and then fix any issues with my usual dash

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:

      Hi - I have a 250GB IDE hard drive with Coin Ops 8 Massive on it along with a few of my games backed up to the hard drive using dvd2xbox.  I also have a few other emulators - NES, SNES and Sega Megadrive.  This is the perfect setup for me and I don't really need to add anything else to it.  Is it possible to add the xbox origins dashboard to my current setup and if so does anyone have a link or details on how to do it?  Any help greatly appreciated.

      I do not know if "auto patch XBX" is about that in a softmod software but is there known games that cannot be executed from G drive for example ?

      This HDMI mod replaces the AV port completely and offers an HDMI port instead for convenience.
      The Installed HDMI mod does look like this:
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      The HDMI mod does offer 5.1 sound through the HDMI port. If you don't need 5.1 (or your TV might not support it) you can simply disable 5.1 audio and get digital stereo audio instead. For those who want to add an optical output to there Xbox the HDMI mod does offer 3 solder points to add a TOTX178 optical transmitter.
      To get the HDMI mod installed you first need to get the AV-port removed.
      To get it removed you could either use a hot-air station or a heat-gun to remove it at once. But that would put a lot of thermal stress on the board!
      The better and recommended alternative is to disassemble the Port and remove it one part at a time.
      First desolder the Metal Tab holding it in place by heating them and prying the metal tab up to pull it out.
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      When the metal tab is removed take a sidecutter and clip off all the pins from the video port as they are what keeps the Port in place.
      When they are clipped off you can take the port cover off by simply pulling it upwards.

      Next step is to remove the remaining plastic piece and desolder the rest of the pins and clean up the area a little.
      Position the first Adapter exactly as show in the photo. The red arrow marks the PTH that has to be alligned centered.
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      Once Positioned solder all the marked points down and make sure they are properly connected before continuing with the second adapter!
      After soldering all the necessary points insulate the 2 soler points shown in green. A piece of kapton tape works well.
      You should do this to be sure there's no unwanted connection occuring between the 2 adapter pcbs.
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      Next up is the second adapter. Just position it above the first adapter using the 2 big holes to allign them and solder down the marked points. Again check continuity before continuing with the next PCB!
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
       
      Last PCB is the HDMI mod itself. You need to position it slightly off centered on the second PCB. The HDMI ports pins will be position it correctly. Just solder down the points that are marked with the red arrows and the install is almos done!
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      Last up is setting the Video mode. You need to add 2 small bridges on the bottom side of the PCB. Just solder in the 2 bridges and the video mode is set correctly!
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      If you want to use the optical out you can easily add a toslink port to the HDMI mod by simply soldering a Transmitter to the 3 marked pins.
