Remove / Disable profile picture when starting XBMC4GAMERS


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been searching for a way to disable the profile picture of XBMC4GAMERS. I only have one profile and it is set to auto load.

Looking at /system/userdata/profile.xml 

there is the line <thumbnail pathversion="1"> that shows where the current image is located but if I delete it, there is still an empty square shown.... 

now how do I get rid of this square?

Simples..

 

Login to the user you want as the default

Press the black button

Select settings

Select skin settings

Select login/debug

Select Auto Login

Click A to set login screen off

Now exit out of the settings menu.

 

Cheers

Hey Dave, 

 

Thank you for your reply, but I already have the login screen disabled and the auto logon enabled.

I would like to boot without the profile image shown.

When I turn on my XBOX I have 

-the flubber intro

-XBMC4GAMERS splash

-then it will show loading in the top left corner and the profile image in the middle

I would very much like XBMC4GAMERS to just show the loading in the top left corner 

I tried to use a profile image with just the same color as the background but it still has an outline.... completely removing the image will give the black square.... So I have been looking where this is square is located but can't find it in any of the XBMC4GAMERS files...

What version 4gamers are you running?

On a 3tb hdd fully loaded it takes 20 seconds from power on and that square is on the screen for under 2 seconds

On a 500gb fully loaded it takes 15 seconds from power on and the same square is on thee screen for under a second (quick flash)

Have you Enabled fast game parsing?

Yup, doesn't speed up anything.

Evox M8+ Bios, 2TB Hdd, XBMC4GAMERS latest test version.

 I didn't think the boot could go any faster. 

It's not a huge issue though., but if there was te possibility of removing the square it would be nice.

I can't edit my last post so I will just leave this here in case somebody wants to do the same.

to remove the profile image from the startup window I have edited the XML file located at XBMC4GAMERS\skins\Profile Skins\720p\inxludes.xml

line 172 changed

<texture border="5">black-back.png</texture>

to

<texture border="0"></texture>

line 180

<texture>black-back.png</texture>

to

<texture></texture>

line 181

<bordersize>1</bordersize>

to

<bordersize></bordersize>

Just enable it in the skin settings > login menu. It will show after you enable auto login. 🤷‍♂️

Hey Rocky5 thanks for your reply, what should show? what option do you mean?

I have two options in the login menu "Auto login >" and "Enable Profile Lock"

Like I said, "Auto login" was already enabled (before I posted my question.) the problem is not with auto login but with the profile picture on boot every time.

      I did search first before posting and couldn't find any threads specifically talking about this.  I'm sure I'm missing something obvious.  I have tested with an original XBOX S Type controller and a 3rd party controller.  I have also tested with a USB keyboard and an adapter.  None of which work when I enter XeniumOS.  However, the controllers work when modchip is disconnected.
      This is a 1.4 revision XBOX.  I assume it must be one of my solder joints to the modchip.  I have already reflowed these joints multiple times to fix another issue.  Unfortunately, I closed the machine up before I realized the problem.  Anyone know which pins I should focus on?  Is there a way to test continuity between LPC header pins and the motherboard?
      Thanks for any help you can provide.

      Hi all,  I've been googling and searching and not finding an answer to this. 
      I fired up my Xbox today (first time in a while) and got a notification that a new version was available.  I went into the settings, updated the URL downloader and then did the XBMC4Gamers update.
      After a bit, I got a message that "autoexec.py" or something like that failed.  Now I'm stuck at a screen that says XBMC Fatal Error: No suitable skin version found (see screenshot)
      I am able to FTP into the xbox just fine.  I did find some mention of a guisettings.xml file but I can't seem to find where it might be and where I can get a replacement for it (if that's even the problem)  My default dash is/was xbmc4gamers, BTW.
      I would appreciate any help!

      Hi, been using this install for ages with no issues. Today after moving from one tv (on component) to another tv (on RGB, don't know if this is important) xbmc4gamers is asking me to calibrate the screen. I do this, it asks to restart, then when it starts up again it is asking for calibration again, then reset and so on, stuck in a loop. 
      Is there a way to bypass this, or maybe a config file to change or delete that will let me back in again?
      I notice after calibration finishes and the restart dialogue comes up, there is a notification in the top left that says 'script failed'.
      Asking here as its likely an easy fix for those with the knowhow! 
      Thanks again folks!
