Evox Skins Not Working?
Posted 13 November 2004 - 07:32 AM
I got the ArcX_v2 skin and it wouldnt show, so I took the jpegs and recompressed them (like re encoded them, basically) with Adobe Photoshop. then I reuploaded, and they work perfectly.
Just though yall would like to know about the jpeg prob there.

People who code EVOX can have a look and probably find it.
I invested a couple of hours and more than 50 (warm) reboots of my X, plus 3 beers and a good cigar.
I just used a "brutal" approach: testing and testing.
Here my findings:
You all already suspected "blackbolt_elite". I picked up also another skin which could make my tests less annoying: "AssPaper2".
1) Each of them work perfectly, if they are alone into the 'skin' Dir.
2) If they are together, only two skins into the Dir, there are two cases:
-a- if 'blackbolt' has been loaded into the Dir first, then there are no problems.
-b- if 'AssPaper2' has been loaded first, then it won't work.
3) If you want to make them work together, even if loaded into the Dir in the wrong order ... cancel the first comment line into skin.ini of 'blackbolt' (= "# Designed from http://www.xbox.com's new layout.")
4) Well, in reality you can just move that comment line at the beginning of the file: it looks like EVOX doesn't like comment lines between "SkinName" and "[Skin_Bb Elite]".
At least this works for me and my dozen of selected skins ("AssPaper2", which I loved and thank, doesn't belong to my official collection).
Hope this helps.

Any ideas? The names are correct in the ini files.

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.
^^^ This should be added as one of the solutions..
wherever your evox.ini and newdash.xbe files are located is where the SKIN directory should be located.

i had the same problem, and its not only skins that start with the same letter
my jlh skin worked perfectly fine
the one abot it halo 2 was working fine aswell
well the one below jlh didnt work so i decided to deleted
(didnt work, meaning that the original default evox skin was showing rather than the new skin)
after deleteing adn rebooting, i noticed my JLH skin didnt work.
so it was kinda odd, but i wasnt too attached to the JLH skin anyways. so i deleted that one as well, BUT THEN after rebooting, i found that my HALO 2 skin now wasnt working properly.
i come to conclusion that, there always is one that isnt working, i think it might be the position of the skin!. not sure tho
skin 3 <--- then that one doesnt work later
skin 4 <-- if that is deleted
and so forth. not sure tho. but it's really annoying.
i don tknow wat to try anymore.
if anyone knows how to fix it, it'd be great.

First look into all the skin folders and make sure then have the skin.ini file (i think its called that).
if you do not see it go to tools\folder options (on the menu bar of that window) then go to view and make sure the dot that says show hidden files and folders is marked, then click save.
no If you see the skin.ini but it is faded out that means it is hidden, and your xbox can't find these hidden files so if you have any skins that have hidden Skin.ini (I downloaded a lot of em) you have to make them unhidden.
to do that, just right click on the skini.ini and click on properties, once in the properties menu just uncheck the hidden option and click ok. And now they should work, or else you have an even bigger problem
