Thc Dash G: Drive Support?
Posted 06 February 2004 - 07:38 PM
i just got a new 250 gig drive installed, and i wanted to set my xbox up in a way that i could put all of my games and apps on the f drive and all of my emulators and media on the g drive.
i made directorys for games and apps on the f drive and i was very happy to find that they were recognised by the tHc dash and put into the launch menu
however, whenever i make an appropriate folder on the G drive (weather it be for apps, emus, games, etc...) it will freeze when i try to get to the submenu. After putting an xbe into G:/emus/, and selecting "emulators" from the dash menu, it will start the animation where that menu moves into view and rotates downward to reveil the menu selection, but it will freeze half way and all i can do is press b to go back to the main selection.
has anyone else had any luck with the thc dash and a g: drive?

here's the solution for those that are interested.
in the function ReadValues() a list of subdirectorys is made of the a desired folder (like apps, emu, games, etc...) for use in a launch menu.
here is a snippit of code used to search the f drive
| var f = new Folder;|
f.path = "N:\\" + fD;
var fL = f.subFolders.length();
var fS = new Array(fL);
if(fL > 0)
for(var fLo = 0; fLo < fL; fLo = fLo + 1)
fS[fLo] = f.subFolders[fLo].name;
and here's the code for searching the g drive
var g = new Folder;
g.path = "O:\\" + fD;
var gL = g.subFolders.length();
var gS = new Array(gL);
if(gL > 0)
for(var gLo = 0; gLo < gL; gLo = gLo + 1)
fS[gLo] = g.subFolders[gLo].name;
i knew this error was happening for me only when i had a subdirectory within one of the searched folders on my g drive, so i knew the problem happened somewhere inside the if(gL > 0) statement.
then i saw it... the subdirectorys names were being stored to fS[gLo] instead of gS[gLo] which i wouldn't have cought if the array fS had more entrys than gS did. It would've simply overwritten the directorys from the f drive >.<
anyway, i changed the fS[gLo] to a gS[gLo] and it works fine now
