Did the XBMC4gamers update and it gave me an error / now stuck on XBMC Fatal error


Recommended Posts

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!

That error is typical of any incompatible or corrupted XBMC skin or, just as it says, no skin found.

With vanilla XBMC you'd usually have at least Project Mayhem III and the HD PM3 skins as default. But whether XBMC4Gamers, which is basically a dedicated XBMC version and skin, will work with other XBMC skins I have no idea. I suspect not.

I have had the same on 2 different Xbox's after a update. 

In the end I downloaded a new copy from rocky5's github (https://github.com/Rocky5/XBMC4Gamers) and FTP that to the Xbox.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
 

 

Hello SS_Dave, well I just had the exact same error, and I'm pretty lost, I have FTP access though

I did everything on this xbox for the first time more than two years ago so I don't remember anything about it, not that I knew much to begin with.

So what exactly should I download from the github and where should I put it on the XBOX FTP ?

Thank you in advance for your help, or anybody's help.

If you go to Rocky5s github you can down load a prebuilt version to FTP to your Xbox

Download Prebuilt versions: Download XBMC4Gamers

OK just did that and copied it over my seemingly installation in E:\Apps\XBMC4Gamers
Unfortunately I still have the exact same error on next boot

Is Xbmc4Gamers your default dash?

Yes it is.

Well good news, it turned out I had another in F:, replacing this one worked, and this seem to be mine/
I seem to have lost some customisation though, I'll have to check, and try to update urldownloader again I guess

I'll come back if I need any further help !

Thank you again !!

Hmmm now I've enabled Fast Game Parsing and the UI stays stuck on 'Loading' with the animation in the top left... even after rebooting the console

I can here the HDD working from time to time though, and I have close to 1000 games (all with their artwork) but is it normal ?

EDIT: Ok it seems this feature is not compatible with using subfolers for games (I sort them by genre like that)

      Hi Everyone!
      I'm Edge, I've been involved in various console scenes since 2001. I was a previous member on X-S and have to say OGX is the next incarnation with a wonderful sense of community, helpful users and great information. I'm honored to be here.
      I've been involved in a number of "preservation" scenes including Saturn, DC, and Gamecube and have done hobbyist development on a number of systems. Like many real life pulled me away from consoles, I had sold many of my modded consoles. My kiddo has gotten old enough now to take an interest in "retro" (retro to her at least haha) gaming so it rekindled my interest and now I'm building "complete" consoles for each generation (catered game collections with all DLC and patches all playable from a console). I recently got a mystery eBay box with lots of classic XBox items that got me started on the xbox path again and so here I am, needing some assistance and already getting some great help and finding great materials.
      Thanks for keeping the OG Xbox torch going!

      Hello everyone, I have a little problem with a softmoded Xbox with an Ndure, XBMC4Gamers main dashboard, Unleash alternative dashboard and equipped with a 500 GB hard drive. The console has about 80 working games on F and G partitions. The problem is that some get corrupted when I try to put others on the hard drive. The home artwork disappears and sometimes I can no longer launch the game. I noticed that some files were getting corrupted. The copied games do not launch or I have an "unreadable disc" message ... I have tried various things but have not been able to resolve this issue. I forgot to say that I have about 30 GB left available on G ... I would like to point out that this problem is only present on the G partition, the one I mainly use in fact ... I even tried to copy games via DVD2XBOX but they are not copied correctly and will not launch, while the application does not report any copy error ... After having thought about it, I tell myself that what produces these "instabilities" or these bugs is the fact of having via the FTP recorded and then erased such or such game many times, which causes the hard drive to be completely fragmented. I understand that it is useless in principle to defragment the HDD but at some point it must be necessary ... No? Has anyone ever had this problem? What I plan to do is move all the functional content to an external HDD via FTP and then re-inject everything cleanly so that I can then have these remaining 30 GB on the G partition without any problem. Thank you for reading me, hoping that some will provide me with an explanation and possibly an alternative solution ...

      So I recently learned a valuable lesson about TSOP flashing when I flashed my 1.0 with iND-BiOS.Beta.Feb-11-05.67.bfm.bin rather than the non-BFM version of the bios. I was wondering what the practical purpose of the BFM (Boot from Media) bios is, and how one would even use it?
      I'm assuming it is a BIOS that something can load AFTER the Xbox as already booted and initialized all hardware?
