Evox Skins Not Working?

When I loaded up the following skins: blackbolt, blackbolt console, blackbolt_elite, and blackbolt_S. Blackbolt console would always load as the default evox skin. If I deleted blackbolt console, then blackbolt would load as the default evox skin. When I deleted blackbolt, the skin above it alphabeticly in the skin menu would load as a default. This went on and on until I was left with the Orignal skin at the top and all the skins below blackbolt_elite aphabeticly being fine. When I loaded the skins back up minus the two blackbolt skins (blackbolt and blackbolt console) all the skins worked pefectly. Adding the 2 blackbolt skin back re-created the problem I was having earlier. Even adding just 1 of the skins back caused the issue.
Conclusion: Somehow having more then 2 skins with the first 9 letters/character being the same, causes some kind of directory error. At least in my case this seems true. I have since added other skins and they worked fine.
This was done with Evox + 3935, X2 4983.67 and a Xecuter 2.3b lite+ chip.
Maybe this will be of some use to others. If anyone else can confirm this on their xbox, please do so. If anyone else has posted on this I haven't seen it, (nor did I really go looking). I just did this for the hell of it.

Can anyone else confirm this?

My little experiment started with verifying that every skin worked prior to starting. All 20 skins worked.
Next I edited 4 different skin inis. I used the following skins: ArcX, Armageddon, Armageddon Widescreen, and AtomGuy. I renamed them As follows ArcX = Armageddon1, and AtomGuy = Armageddon2. The others stayed the same. The Skin inis were also updated to relect the changes.
So.... Now I have 4 test skins with the first 10 characters being the same. Next these 4 skins were added to the skin folder on my xbox. Rebooted and... They all worked.
So this disproved my earlier attempt to figure this damn thing out.
So I then removed the 4 test skins. Since I already had Blackbolt Console and blackbolt_S loaded I decided to test it again with these skins. So I added blackbolt and blackbolt_elite to the mix. Rebooted... and blackbolt loads as the default Evox skin. So now I'm wondering if its something specific the blackbolt skins I have. Yes I checked the ini file to make sure it was correct. And when I deleted just the blackbolt skin a different skin, named X OSX, loaded up as the default skin. Only minutes before it had worked, prior to deleting the blackbolt skin. (Whenever I changed something I went through all the skins to verify functionality).
In order to fix this I deleted all my skins, rebooted, and added all my favorites minus blackbolt and blackbolt_elite. Every single skin worked.
So I will be focusing in on these four specific skins: blackbolt, Blackbolt Console, blackbolt_elite, and blackbolt_S. I think renaming and adjusting the inis will solve it. If someone else has time, lets get some independent confirmation here. I hope this leads somewhere. Damn wild goose chases.

If anyone else that has been having this problem can confirm whether they've been using the Blackbolt skins, it would certainly help to narrow things down. But I can't see what the heck would be so different about the Blackbolt skins that would cause this (I've gone through the ini files a billion times!).

In keeping variables to a minimum I continue to use the same four test subjects. This time I rename each to something similar to the original name but not quite.
Blackbolt = Boltb; Blackbolt Console = Blackconsole; blackbolt_elite = elite blackbolt; and blackbolt_S = Sblackbolt. Each ini was changed to match. Alone BoltB loaded fine. BoltB + Blackconsole = ok. BoltB + Blackconsole + elite blackbolt = Boltb loading as default skin. This is beyond me in terms of explaining it. Without a confirmation from another member I'm forced to assume its some bug associated with my specific hardware/software. Since I like the Blackbolt Console better then blackbolt I'll use that with blackbolt_S and not blackbolt_elite. Those two have the extra details anyways and using them together has not caused one skin to screw up. I hope this has been productive in some manner. As for me, I have a problem free box that I can live with.

I did the same thing. I know the skins work individually but not when more then a couple get togehter. Very strange.....
But like I said, I can live with my answer, hopefully someone else will be spared a headache or two.

I was using a homegrown skin on my previous version, but now it will not work on 35. I don't know what's going on, but it just won't show up.

I found out that my Evo.ini & evoxdash.xbe is in E\newdash directory instead of c\. Thus i create the skin folder in E\newdash\skin\ and dump the new skins inside. And it works.
