Probably not... I'm sure it wouldn't just be the same command as in unleashx

there are programs in the usual places that are named trayopen.xbe and trayclose.xbe. with a little menu programming these will work the same way, only show the ava loading screen each time and return. IIRC they also have restart.xbe shutdown.xbe

yeah but waiting 5 seconds for an xbe to load is slower than getting up and pushing the button yourself, especially since you have to be up to put a disc in the drive anyway. Hopefully Team Avalaunch will add this feature soon. Maybe a unique approach such as opening/closing the tray with a button press (Y or some other unused button) would be cool. Would be a very fast way to open the drive.

Well stated.

Unless...

From the couch
(1) Press Y
(2) Open jewel case of the DVD you want to install (this is while waiting for the .xbe to launch and open the drive)
(3) Throw the DVD into the drive (this can be done as EZ as flicking a playing card into a hat.
(4) Drink a beer for successfully completing the throw label side up - beerchug.gif
(5) Press Y again - go refresh your beerchug.gif while waiting for the .xbe to close the drive
(6) Sit back down on your arse and start playing

It's that EZ - the hard part for the dev team would be to create something that throws your DVD back at you when you’re done playing it.

Or get some excerzie and get up and manually change out the DVD!! laugh.gif

Seriously - Fantastic work on the latest build Team AVA!!!

The xbox bios should give you a beer when it detects you succesfully threw a disc into the tray. Make it squirt out of a usb port.
