heh, evox has already been blown away by avalaunch, so i think their who you have to compete with, or atleast who you will be compared with if your not trying to compete.

looks good so far, and competition is always good.. just dont take a year to add a minor feature like evox andyou might have a future.. BTW games menu needs to be repositioned, cut off game names isint too good smile.gif

1) G drive support works great.

That's great to hear. It was a BIOS feature anyways, but great all the same. biggrin.gif

3) FTP speed downloading from Xbox was poor. I was only getting about 1,500,000kbps transfering the same file back. This increased to about 3,500,000kbps once I turned the screen saver off  tongue.gif

Gotta check that one out.


Nice catch on the typo, it was a last minute addition on the config.xml done at 4AM sad.gif . And Nice first impression too. Thanks a lot.

please unleashx, just say how to make Icon.jpg or Icon.png working...

i a screenshot named Icon.jpg in each games folder and its not working, unleashx only shows embedded default.xbe icon...

only way i found was to edit manually the items.xml but it will be long and i don't want to do it that way each time a add a new game...

when unleashx scans for default.xbe in each folder, can't it just take the icon.jpg if present and add it to the config file ???

Good work BTW.

I likeit alot, but its not replacing my custom moded xboxdash.xbe and such, but this new unleasxdash seems like a mix of Evox and Nexgen and xboxdash. Very bice, very promising. YEs, it works in 480P!! Although, I think I would need to have the roginal xboxdash video settings, like 480P yes or no, 720P ye or now and so forth. I did run into a little problem tryin to change the system settings for filemanager. The input of the keyboard and MS joypad is fast, maybe a little too fast, and I would skip some of the keyboard input when Iwas tryin to type in the new filemanager name. I finally got it inputed, but it keeps going to the defualt Unleashxdash file manager and I like my XCommander file manager. Also, maybe an option for File Attributes fixer should be added to UnleashXDash file manager.
Alos, saw some werd things, the Games listed had some Names not fully displayed like: SPAW, which is my Spawn game, But its all there in Evox as SPAWN. I also saw other games listed and they were complete. Strange. This could very well replace my Old Evox, once some more features are added. Like a Skin to mimi the original green Xbox Dash completely..?
Flash BIOS options, and whatever the auther intends to add. Its still not the end all be all Xboxdash.xbe, it still has to goto the MS xboxdash.xbe to load a DVD or Audio CD.. Ohh well, Still a very nice Beta. Congrats to the Author, Keep the Betas coming an I will test it on my Infocus X1 DLP Projectot at 480P, I can also test 720P and 1080P if need to.
Thanks!

Unleash uses and depends on the internal settings of xbox. It's only supporting 480P at the moment, so no 720P.

The File Manager wil always use the built-in file manager. What that settings supposed to do is, when you insert an Xbox DVD (without the default.xbe on the root), it will launch whatever file manager you had it configured with, or fire up the built-in one if you left it blank.

I'll try to add Attribute fixer. Also, there's a green skin included with the skinpack. It's not exactly like MS Dash, but you can configure the colors to match your taste. Flashing of BIOS is at the bottom of my list. I designed this dash with safety in mind, so anything that could potentially damage your xbox won't be added till everything is A okay.

For your DVD/CD playing, yes, it requires a player. This is a dash, so adding those capability is not on the list. I stated this in the docs and like I said, we already have a great media players outthere, I'm not about to make a new one. I'm trying to keep the footprint down to a minimum so it stays fast and responsive.

Rats I hate to be the first with a stupid question, but here goes anyway laugh.gif

1) Screen Capture. How does this work? In the doc file that comes with the skins it says "press left trigger + black" I tried this but I can't find a captured file anywhere. Does it put them in the folder where your xbe is? is "left trigger + black" correct? (I tried every other possible combination as well)

2) News feed does not seem to work. I have it enabled. I had to edit the xml file manualy as it can't be enabled in settings. I tried all the skins, just in case it could be turned off in the skin, but still no joy. Note:- I have news feeds in Avalaunch working fine.

Cheers

Xboxgeek

The files can be found in Drive Z. It Z has no space, next will be in Y, then X. When doing a screen capture, you'll notice a slight pause which means it's capturing.

Newsfeed won't show up unless your skin supports it. It doesn't make sense to fetch the news if your skin don't intend to show it. Try the BlueBox skin, it has support for it.

ok feedback.

the interface and fonts are funky... the same kind of funkyness that keeps me from every considering MXM a dash. cant explain it

the left stick goes down but dosent come back up

the extra skins you included, arent what you call great.

besides that, not bad for a start

I would have to say, I love this as well. I do have one problem though. FTP doesn’t work for me. I get the same results that I do with nexgen. I can login but it doesn’t show drives. It may be a simple fix like deleting some save file or something, but I just don't know. If I could get the ftp to work I would use this dash as a default at least for a while.
So if anyone has any answers for me please let me know.

Great job I look forward to upcoming stuff.

What's your IP setting? It has to be in the same segment as your home network/PC. You can easily change it right from the settings screen.

Please post your settings. The config.xml that came with it is configured to use 192.168.1.100.

I couldnt get this to work either - the screenshots I posted, I took with the xdk.

Hopefully a seperate forum will be opened shorlty for this new dash, should be easier for people to post their individual files.

Please see my post above. All the pics from the docs was taken using screen capture. It's either in Z, Y, or X and named Image_000x.bmp.

keyboard support? huh ?
my keyboard works in everything apart from this

Really? Gotta check this one out. Anyways, unlike Xbox-Linux, I don't have/implement my own USB driver. I'm relying on the xbox to detect it.

please help me setup custom icons...

all games show correctly but only with embedded icon...

i tried to put a screenshot in both png and jpg format in each game directory and i named it Icon.png and Icon.jpg.... but still the embedded icon.

Please help, what's missing ?

Try editing items.xml and place your custom icon in AltIcon attribute. I'll add the feature to modify this settings right from your xbox with the upcoming release.

Just so you know, you can also add an icon to your root menu. Just add the Icon attribute to your menu items. ATM, you'd have to do this manually, but like I said, I'll add that feature in.

i've tested this out and it seems pretty damn nice so far
the fan speed thing seems to be messed or something for me
i set to 1.5 and it keeps going back to 1x
and yea, i'd love to be able to calibrate the screen to fix the overscan issues
trigger scrolling seems to be reversed but no biggie
i gotta admit, for a first release, this kicks some serious ass

If your fan speed keeps going back to 1, then, it failed to set it. The figures you see on the settings screen are the current running values. It only set it when you start the dash.

The trigger is reversed? Hmn, fast scrolling using trigger was Iriez's idea that I added recently. Isn't right trigger supposed to be Up? You can also use the left thumbstick to do a fast scroll.

Excellent dashbaord! smile.gif Only problem i found was that it wont launch games that are on G: partition.
Yes I have Use G: Drive enabled and Yes I added the path in the xml to where my games are on G:
<List Text="Games" Sort="On" Auto="On">
<Path>E:Games</Path>
<Path>F:Games</Path>
<Path>G:Games</Path>

Games show in the Games menu but when you press A to launch nothing happens.

Besides that its a great dashboard! and i know once they work out all the bugs this dash will rule!! smile.gif

I'll have to take a look. Though, if it's something out of the ordinary, I'm afraid, I'm gonna have a hard time since I don't have a large HD ATM.

The RESET option inside the settings section locks up my XBOX, but the one on the Main menu is fine, which is the important thing. smile.gif

Any I've only found that bug, aside of that, it is replacing Evox for me unless I can find something that makes me want to switch back, and thus far I am not finding it.

Awsome work man, very awsome!

The Reset inside the settings menu is for FTP and Network. Resetting the network stack takes a while and could lock up your xbox.

Glad to hear you liked it.

You can't blow away Evox that easily unless you have a replacement for each and every feature of it. Like IGR, among other things. sure IGR is available for TeamX BIOS users but there a more than a handfull of xboxes that still uses Enigma/Extender/X1...etc. It's not perfect but it's better than nothing biggrin.gif .


Some games can have a very long name, indeed. So unless you reposition the menu location and change the size, some text would be truncated. Of course, having a widescreen settings helps alleviate the problem but it doesn't solve it.
