XBmc4gamers and Artwork Questions

Recommended Posts

I am using XBMC4GAMERS, an I used the artwork installer, which did install artwork for  almost all of my games.   But can I manually do it for the games/emus etc., that it missed? If so, how?

And can I change the cover art associated with a particular game specifically?  I have that I downloaded that seem to have their own unofficial art.

Does the box art associated with a particular game have anything to do with why the xbe files are patched on some downloaded games?  Or is that just to make the games able to run on the HD?

Now that I have the manual artwork installer, my previous questions were answered.  Now, can anyone explain how to get the artwork working if I sort all my games into directories, alphabetically for example?

Can you tell me a little about the artwork installer?  and any other tips you care to share on customizing xbmc4gamers.

If you already have XBMC4GAMERS installed, and the Xbox is connected to the internet, you can go into Options, select settings, and go to Downloader.  If you’ve never used it it will have to download and install.  From there you can download Artwork installer and install it.  It will run a script that will seek out the directories Games, Homebrew, emulators, apps,etc., and install the artwork for the games/etc. that it finds in them.  It does it automatically. 

If you have the latest version of XBMC4gamers, artwork installer installs as an app, so the you have the option to manually install what it didn’t find.  

As for customizing XBMC4gamers, someone else will have to chime in.  I am trying to figure that out a little also.

Thanks swirly

I finally had it setup the way I wanted it and I found that it crashes while scrolling thru the game list.

Then that profile started giving me errors such as trying to scan games but not actually moving.  

Iv since then made 2 other profiles and the 3rd one works like a dream.  Its minimal but it gets the job done.

Im not sure if the problems are from a doggy ide to sata I got off ebay.  

Anyhow now I know how to set it up its easy to just make another profile.

However my emus dont have any artwork.  does anyone have artwork for Surreal64CE B6.0/ZsnexBox 3.7/mednafenx_nes_v15

and know exactly how to install it without the artwork installer?

      Hi there,
      I'm new to the og XBox world
      I bought a XBox half year ago and took it apart.
      I found out that it has an "Aladdin 2" modchip and as far as I understand is also TSOP modded.
      It's a NTSC XBox v1.0.
      My questions for you are:
      Do I really need the modchip?
      As far as I understand the v1.0 has a big TSOP Chip, which can be splitted into banks, if I really need different bioses.
      So does this modchip anything different/special?
      And why do I need different Bioses?
      I just want to use this Xbox as (region free) Gaming console and maybe for XBMC.
      And is there a cheap (and easy) way to get digital output?
      I only got a VGA adapter with this XBox and it doesn't really work with my TV.Please login or register to see this attachment.

      I am writing this today to see about getting some help with my 1.6 Xbox and the Xeceuter 2.6 CE installed in it. I recently did this Please login or register to see this link. involving a resistor to extend the life of the board and the board works fine after the install.
      This is also where I managed to find an issue. With the mod chip enabled, both banks load up their respective bioses, but when I disable the mod chip using the front panel switch, the console Frags after 3 tries. When I disconnect the LFrame wire from the mod chip, the console boots up like normal to the stock dash using the stock bios. Before the mod though, disabling the mod chip using the front panel switch worked liked normal.
      So now I am a point where I made a modification to extend the life of the console, but lost some functionality in my mod chip at the same time. I am wondering if anybody knows what would cause the issue I described and if anybody else has ever run into similar issues. Though I know most don't tend to mod 1.6 consoles if the can avoid it.
      I'm also curious if anybody else happens to have an Xbox motherboard that is warped around the CPU and GPU area. By warped, I mean that I can see a curve in the motherboard around that area.
