I've found bits and pieces on Evox scripting through forum searches and the EvolutionX website, but does anybody know of a complete guide to Evox scripting commands and protocols?

Thanks.

That helps some, but I'm looking more for info on using commands like "copy", "rename", "delete," and other scripts.

The reason is I modded a box for my brother-in-law, and put both the MechAssault hack on there, as well as the font hack. Through experience, I've found that the Mechassault hack has a much better chance of not getting screwed up.

So I stuck exact copies of the C: and E: drives in a couple folders on E:, and want to create a restore command from within Evox in the Mechassault game save. That way, if he leaves the thing unplugged for too long, or the dash gets updated some how, all he'll have to do is load the MechAssault hack, and press 'restore' to overwrite all the new files.

Thank you.

Excellent! That's all I need to do actually. What is the format for the copy command? And could I copy the entire contents of a folder with something like:

copy "E:Ebackup*.*" "E:"

?

Or, if you could just show me the line you are using to test the copy function, I could experiment and figure it out from there.

Thanks Ddaddy.

[Action_50]

LogFile = "E:turnon.log"
Info "Activate XBOX Hack?"
Warning "You must reboot after this"
Progress "Turning on XBOX hack..."
copy "E:TDATAfffe0000musicST.ORG.DB" "E:TDATAfffe0000musicST.DB"

This is just a small section i use for turning on the fonts and using the original st.db file.

Using a logfile helps if things go wrong.

sorry, the forum doesnt seem to display slashes, i will try pating again here

CODE
[Action_50]

LogFile = "E:\turnon.log"
Info "Activate XBOX Hack?"
Warning "You must reboot after this"
Progress "Turning on XBOX hack..."
copy "E:\TDATA\fffe0000\music\ST.ORG.DB" "E:\TDATA\fffe0000\music\ST.DB"


Just for reference, you need to put two slashes together to get one to display
