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

      I messed up. Was fiddling around with configmagic trying to lock the HDD on my chipped Xbox 1.6 so I can transfer and use the HDD on my softmodded Xbox. I followed this guide here: https://www.biline.ca/xbox_uxe_hd2.htm 
       I was able to update the EEPROM as stated and locked the HDD so it can be used on the softmodded Xbox. That worked fine. But now my chipped Xbox turns on but no picture or video whatsoever. I don't know what to do next...

      It has literally been over 10 years since I've played it. One of the bootup screens says "Xecutor2" at the bottom, so that tells me that much at least.
      My main question is the three (3) dip switches on the front of the console. Someone else installed it for me, and I forget what each of them does.
      I think that the left-most one controls whether or not the modchip is active; you wanted to toggle that one off if you ever went onto XBox Live, I think.
      Can anyone help?

      I grabbed a Kernel file from this page and I flashed it with XBlastOS.
      Does the kernel have to match the original kernel? 
      What is the kernel relative to the BIOS? Normally kernel and BIOS are two very different components of a computer. I shouldn't have been able to flash the TSOP with the kernel correct?
      How are those kernels meant to be used?
      I was looking for the default BIOS.
      Thanks
