Here's one from me: A Diagnostic script!

Start with a Skin Configuration Checker.... looking for common problems like improperly nested folders, rar files, or missing skin paths.

From there, other common problems could be tackled.

Ok, two script's I may make myself, but now I'm too tired/lazy to even begin to start action scripting. So, here they are:

A script that checks for XBMP/C save file, deletes it, then launches XBMP/C. This is for people who always use the latest CVS. Now, I haven't really had problems just updating and using the same save file, but I think they reccommend that you delete it first. Plus, when you can easily run this action, why the hell not do it?

The next script would take screenshot's you've made, and move them to say, on the E or F drive.

Um, now that I think of it, these script's are kind of useless. You don't NEED to delete the saves for XBMP/C before updating to the latest CVS. And, if you have a skin, you probably want to show it off, therefore won't forget to check Z drive for the pics. Oh well, maybe I'll see about doing them anyway, learn from it or whatever.

It can be changed via mxm.xml.. i know thats not what you asked for.. but there is not a function to set the xbox name using a script yet. (it will be easy if that function is added)

Well, I'll probably have to add some things, like PING, but validating other settings, verifying that a newsfeed is set up, for example, or if they've got menu items defined. Maybe a media validator (identify missing media for menu items)

Skins were the big thing, though...

CODE
SETFUNC EXISTS FILEEXISTS "E:\TDATA\0face007\"
SETFUNC XBMP FILEEXISTS "E:\Apps\XBMP\default.xbe"

GOTO CHECK

:CHECK
IF EXISTS == "0" GOTO END
IF EXISTS == "1" GOTO BEGIN
IF XBMP == "0" GOTO END
IF XBMP == "1" GOT BEGIN

:BEGIN
RmDir "E:\TDATA\0face007\" 1
RmDir "E:\UDATA\0face007\" 1
GOTO LAUNCH

:END
BeginDraw UseCurrent
MessageBox "No save exists$eol$$eol$Press A to exit"
INPUT
IF %_GP_A% == "1" GOTO QUIT
EndDraw

:LAUNCH
Exec "E:\Apps\XBMP\default.xbe"

:QUIT
QUIT


Ok, so there's the half ass version 1.0. Not too shabby for a few min. work, I'd say. I just tweaked it, and I haven't used it yet, but the last one worked, only it always displayed the message box. I plan to make it alot better, possibly reading the cache menu and finding the location of XBMP/XBMC and deleting the saves and launching depending on user input. But, I'm lazy and 'plan' to do alot of things. smile.gif

Change xbox name script

Done

You can get it here--> NameChanger.xas

It REQUIRES (AlphabetSoup.xas) too and you must edit the first line in the NameChanger.xas to reflect the location where you save alphabetsoup.xas to.

A Reboot is required for the change to take effect, you can do it immediately to see the change, or later if you want to play a game first..

A Pain I know.. but that pain will go away some day. smile.gif

007 is XBMP and 008 is XBMC. The script is just a test, using something that's actually working for me, the last 2 or 3 cvs builds of XBMC just freeze upon launch, so I couldn't really test.

Yea sure thing. I'll try and get it done relatively soon, though I'm kinda lazy and very new to action scripting, and it's been ages since I've done any 'real' programming, kinda forgot most of it.
