First_Degree for his code, which helped me make a complete configuration that could show tHc Lite skin previews and extract them.
This is a tutorial on how to transform Unleashx into a tHc-Lite manager.

-Copy Games to HD without DVD2XBOX
-Choose your own skins and have previews of each skin
add a folder named thcskins in the root of the C drive, Inside that folder make extract the skin. Patch the thcdash.xbe with the skin's color with Hexbe and upload it to the root of the skin's folder. Ex:
This is my skin's folder path: C:\thcskins\blacklite\ (i uploaded the thcdash here)
The next step is to put the skin.xip into a folder named thcdata. ex:
This is my skin.xip path: C:\thcskins\blacklite\thcdata\ (upload the skin.xip here)
Now zip the folder, DO NOT WINRAR it because Unleash x wont extract it.
The next step is to cofigure the config.xml for Unleash x. Use the code i posted earlier and paste it in the config.xml replacing all of the old code.
Now adding your skin in the menu so that Unleash x will extract it to the root of C.
::GO HERE IN THE CONFIG.XML::
This is my complete config.XML:
<Item Action="CopyDVD" Icon="C:\thcskins\icons\dvd-hd.png">Copy Game to HD</Item>
<Item Action="TextEditor" Icon="C:\thcskins\icons\t.png">Text Editor</Item>
<Item Action="FileManager" Icon="C:\thcskins\icons\fm.png">File Manager</Item>
<List Icon="C:\thcskins\icons\skins.png" Text="Skins" Sort="Off" Auto="On">
<Item Action="UnZip" Icon="C:\thcskins\icons\blacklite.jpg" Arg1="C:\thcskins\blacklite.zip" Arg2="C:\">Black-Lite</Item>
<Item Action="Skins">THc-Lite Manager Skins</Item>
<Item Action="C:\evoxdash.xbe" Icon="C:\thcskins\icons\thclite.png">THC Dash</Item>
The red code is the path to the zipped skin
The blue code is the name you want to appear in the Skins menu on Unleash X.
The green code is where it will extract the files.
The orange code is the path to the preset preview for the skin.
I reccomend making an "icons" folder in your Xbox's HD, just specify the path.

and put all the codes and the necesery files in there.
i think it is possible and thc team has done it but they are not releasing now, most likely with the final version.
almost like a secret goverment (or even better M$) agency.

<Item Action="UnZip" Icon="C:\Icons\9.bmp" Arg1="C:\thcskins\Golden Ball\Golden Ball.zip" Arg2="C:\">Golden Ball</Item>
<Item Action="UnZip" Icon="C:\Icons\10.bmp" Arg1="C:\thcskins\Green Bubbles\Green Bubbles.zip" Arg2="C:\">Green Bubbles</Item>

<Item Action="UnZip" Icon="C:\Icons\12.bmp"Arg1="C:\thcskins\Menthol\Menthol.zip" Arg2="C:\">Menthol</Item>
and so on for all my thclite skins. Here's my problem. Like the first 10 display the preview icon just as the should but anything after that doesn't. I have tried everything I can think of and it's just not working Please!!! Can someone tell me why? They all Unzip Just as they should so I am very happy about that I think that this is the coolest way to switch between skins I just want my preview icons!!
NOTE: If this helps I split my skins list in to two lists: skins & skins2 and all the previews appear up to 9 skins. Anything past that and the preview is gone. So as a work around I could have skins1, skins2, and skins3 w/ 9 skins in each but that sucks. Any ideas?

Change it from 640 x 480 to 320 x 240. All of this may help, you dont need the two lists. Use one of the suggestions or all of them, Im shure it will help you and many others.
