Hello everyone and thank you Rocky5 for this fabulous work! I love this "skin", especially for previews and synopsis.

I am trying to make a pack for the 1000 games of the XBox and I will need some information:

1) What are the exact dimensions of the images (poster, thumbs, screenshots ...)?

2) Do you have a script to automate a little things like creating thumbs, banner, fanart ...?

3) Same for the default.xml, is there a scrapper to do them?

For now, my pack is 8GB and contains mostly default.tbn (cover front in png), 600 previews, 1000 posters and a few fanart + screenshots. As soon as it is ready, I will post it so that everyone can enjoy it;)

Thank you in advance for your answers and sorry for my bad English, I am French ...

cordially

[EDIT] Adding 900 banners :)

Another question: is it mandatory to create a profile? Because it would be simpler for me to be directly the page of the games rather than to choose a profile. Thank you in advance.

Images are these dimensions. 

Please login or register to see this link.

banner is 760x160

posters I use this, 339x482 instead ignore the one in image above  

( you could have downloads the synopsis example and seen all these dimensions yourself, it’s why I put it on my github )

as for default.xml it’s all manual I’m afraid. 

Everything is manual :( it’s time consuming. 

 

I have answered the questions about profiles and such in the XBMC4Xbox forum. ( I have a thread there about this skin/mod )

Edit the profile.xml in Q:\USERDATA\ and at the top change the "useloginscreen" value from true to false.

Now you will need to change the default skin to the Profiles skin.

I got a suggestion or two.

1. Make the scrolling of games wrap from A-Z and Z-A.

 As it works now to get to games starting on Z you have to go all the way to the right, and that

takes a while when you have 500+ games on the box.

 

2. Can the Y-position of scrolling games be  adjusted with the Left Thumbstick ?

 

3. With the new Synopsis how about the possibilty to list/sort games by genre, rating, release date

 

4. When in Synopsis mode - the ability to go left/right to select other games would be nice.

 

5.  Update/download resources, movies and synopsis from the internet using the game id would be awesome.

 

6. Would be nice to see how much space is left on the c: e: f: g: drives.  Doesnt need to be

on the main screen but in the settings menu. But that's only me being used to have it handy.

 

7. Information on music currently playing on top of screen.

Second this... 

Is there any way to show the space left at the moment?

Could you make it to where we have the option of showing all the other sections other than Xbox games instead of having to press B to get to them?

Thanks lot!

Hi Rocky,

Ive been using your iso script for a few games recently and at the moment i have had to rite a list so i know which games are in iso format. Is there anyway of displaying an icon on the game artwork like the trainer icon to show that its an iso game?  Or is there already something in pace and im just missing it?

You can see this in settings by going to the file manager, it is displayed there.

No, each XISO is placed into a folder with (ISO) at the end. Unfortunately there is no voidable cue as there can’t be and I won’t edit the games xbe title to add (ISO), no point.

Press the black button and it will tell you.

Question Rocky5:

What controls the other icons added to the games that you've played already and those with a trainer?

Is it built into XBMC4Xbox itself or something in the skin?

For the trainer, is it that one is available for the game?

Hi Rocky 5 and thank you for your mod XBMC4Gamers who is just awesome!

Here is a light pack (3.7 Go) of 1026 MP4 preview videos of 30 seconds if you want to integrate it into your Pack "Xbox Artwork Master": Please login or register to see this link.

Not all videos are perfect, but they are all present and perfectly compatible XBMC4Gamers;)


And thanks again for your work :)

      Guys, I need some feedback from some veterans out there.
      I have my first original Xbox, and I modded it, etc. But I also have a few original games that came with my Xbox etc. one of them is the first Splinter Cell.
       
      The problem is simple, for doing anything in the game I have to press "SUPER" hard on the buttons! (for the action to be performed) Now I know what you'll tell me, buy a new Xbox controller. I just got an original mint condition controller from Japan. All other games I've played don't have this problem, on the opposite I hardly touch the button and the action is performed! (in every other game) The controller is in mint condition and it's original Xbox brand!
       
      Is this how the game was coded? I have the platinum hits version of Splinter Cell by the way.
       
      Thank you all guys, you are a great community from what I have seen, my regards
