Can't Link Msdash To Evox
Posted 28 June 2004 - 08:39 AM
Is there any other way I can set the date or time, I have an app call xbox watch, but I haven't been able to use it.

Does it match the MS dash name referenced in your evox.ini?

I also have in c: xboxdash.xbe(formally update.xbe) & evoxdash.xbe.
I was just reading an old post where it said to rename MODXxboxdash.xbe back to xboxdash.xbe which would mean getting rid of existing xboxdash.xbe? I don't understand why it won't link to MODXxboxdash

|Item "MS Dashboard",ID_MS_Dash|
You could try to add something like this to your evox.ini, it should link straight to your xbox dash
|Item "MS Dashboard","c:\MODxboxdash.xbe"|
Another way to set the clock would be in UnleashX. In the settings menu, you can change the time and date and also have the option to auto set the clock.
Even evox if the .ini file is set up correctly, can have the time updated automatically via a SNTP server (the default server IP is 188.8.131.52)

Make sure you EvoX.ini is pointing to the right hexed dash. If it is, try to re-hex the dash, making sure you get the file extensions right.
BTW: Noobs give some bloody details when asking questions, it helps us help you

Anyway couldn't resist, changed "MS Dashboard",ID_MS_Dash in the ini, ended up getting a black service screen. Makes a nice change from looping back to Evox So I think I'm on to something, anyway I'll pick up the pieces and try again tommorow. Cheers for the input guys

Does the MS dash load with your chip disabled? (hdd must be locked)

Top of evox reads:
#AudioPlayer = "c:MODXxboxdash.xbe"
MSDashBoard = "c:MODXxboxdash.xbe"
With only this change in my evox.ini it still loops back to evox,
But when I change
Item "MS Dashboard",ID_MS_Dash
Item "MS Dashboard","c:\MODXxboxdash.xbe"
as bigga suggested I get the black service screen.
I tried 3 different ways of editing MODXxboxdash.xbx
1. Hex edit and linking font strings to f0nt as suggested in the UDE guide
2. Hex edit xtf to xft
3. Used a patcher
All MODXxboxdash were then signed although I read this is sometimes not necessary.
So I have 3 xbe files in c:\ evoxdash, xboxdash, MODXxboxdsh. MODX is the original and the one I have been trying to use with my fonts.
Anyway I did get the date & time set using UnleashX (thanks bigga)
but I still want msdash link fixed in evox, it feels incomplete without it.

Like I said, just manually hex a fresh dash, making sure you get the extensions right, and that the renamed font files are there. Then name it to say MSDASH.XBE (just easier that way ) and it should work...

Question, does it matter which fresh dash I use
ie; I have my original virgin msdash backed up, I also have slayers ver which I used before I added UDE.
