Need help with DashLoader Button Configurator GUI


Recommended Posts

My OG XBOX is a version 1.4 and has been TSOP modded and is running INDBIOS 5003 with F & G support.  I am using Rocky5's ISO BIOS patcher as the first thing that runs at bootup (DASH1 in IND0BIOS.CFG) to get ISO loading working and that is fine (I used to run UnleashX and needed it, not sure I still need it with XBMC4Gamers but assumed so since I'm using INDBIOS 5003).  I assembled the patcher.xbe (named it "XISO Loader.xbe") with it pointing to the dashloader.xbe at C:\DashLoader (renamed from C:\evoxdash.xbe) which, in turn, defaults to my XBMC4Gamers default.xbe at E:\XBMC4Gamers\ directory.  I edited the "A" .cfg that resides within the C:\dashloader directory to point to the Enigmah PAL/NTSC app in my E:\Apps\ directory in case I want to switch video modes.  All of that works great.  I can boot to XBMC4Gamers by default or hold "A" and get to the Enigmah video switcher to select PAL or NTSC.  Fantastic stuff!  But, now, I am trying to get the dashloader configurator GUI to work for configuring the dashloader button settings and I can't get it to work.  I installed the dashboard configurator from the URLDowloader within XBMC4Gamers into my E:\Apps\ directory and that seems to work fine as I am able to run the configurator which loads the settings from somewhere and will save settings somewhere BUT it does NOT really impact the A,B,X,Y, etc. .cfg files within the C:\cashloader\ directory.  What am I missing?

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Rocky5 has a hardmod version of the dashloader that is set up to work with ind-bios 5003 and patches the BIOS to add XISO mounting capabilities.

It's available from his github Xbox Softmodding Tool repository under the Extras Disc / Hardmod / dashloader / section.

https://github.com/Rocky5/Xbox-Softmodding-Tool/tree/master/Extras Disc/Hardmod/dashloader

The evoxdash.xbe there is the all-in-one app for the XISO patcher, dashloader to use the default DASH1 line of the stock ind-bios.cfg that loads C:\evoxdash.xbe)

Install it and see if it works.

 

Edit: From your description of where the dot cfg files are located C:\dashloader\, I think it should be working.  Not sure where the problem lies.

Edit 2: Re-arranged the content, etc.

Attach the default.xbe file of the dashloader configurator to a post in this thread or share it via a bit locker site and post the link to it here.

Don't worry about uploading the file.  I think I've found the problem...let me make sure! :)

What's the filename of the patcher that's loaded by the DASH1 line of ind-bios.cfg?

Not evoxdash.xbe is it!  The customizer looks for C:/Dashloader and C:/evoxdash.xbe or the softmod locations to edit the custom button dot cfg files. If it finds the softmod files on E:/UDATA/<blah>/<blah>/ - you did not remove them from the E drive after TSOP flashing - it is most likely making changes to the button files there.

Where's there you ask - E:/UDATA/21585554/000000000000/nkpatcher settings/dashloader/ instead of C:/dashloader/.

It's all in the Python script(s) that edit the files for the Dashloader Customizer.  Those dot cfg files.

E:\Apps\Dashloader Customizer\System\Scripts\build_cfg_files.py

E:\Apps\Dashloader Customizer\System\Scripts\read_cfg_files.py

      Hey guys, Wyverino here
       
      I am fairly new to the xbox modding scene. My gf just gifted me an old premodded 1.1 for christmas and I love it so far. I just want to tweak it a little more to make it my hopefully favorite console! 
       
      Wish all of you guys a happy new year!

      Hi modding noob and first time poster here..just need some help with the IGR function on this xbox 1.6 I bought used. Everytime I try to use the button combination for IGR the console goes back to the logo then the screen blanks out. I would then need to do a hardboot to get back to the dash. Another thing I noticed is I need to hold the power button for at least 2 seconds to get the chip to load the custom bios or else it would just give out an error code. Plus for some strange reason the chip isn't flashable according to evox, though I know these aladdin chips should be flashable? I'm pretty sure this has something to do with the modchip probably not wired correctly, so if anyone can point me in the right direction that would be much appreciated.

      Newbie here! 
      So glad to see some kind of OG Xbox community still exists! I'm not the most social bean but I will try!
      Hopefully I can bring a new level to the community with my tool I am working on to help build Xbox OG source code super easy, called Easy-Build Xbox 😁
      EDIT: I am not sure on the rules yet of posting about and linking my tool, as the nature of it is source code, as long as there's no direct links on the forum is it okay? 
      But for now I'm saying hi and learning about the forum! 😅
