Dashboard Font Patcher
Posted 07 July 2004 - 09:04 AM
19/7-2004 : Fixed a bug that produced an output xbe larger than the input xbe for the windows version.
I still see numerous posts by people having trouble hexing a copy of their M$ Dash to look for the original fonts after installing a font hack.
To hopefully make this a bit more simple I made a small command line tool to be run from a DOS prompt that patches the name of the "fonts" folder or the .xtf extension in a dashboard file.
This can be used on your original M$ Dash or any of the replacement dashboard based on the M$ Dash (tHC, blackstromx, ...).
Get the tool from 'the usual places' (PC section, xbe tool).
Copy your dashboard xbe to the patcher folder and run the tool. The output file from this tool is out.xbe. The syntax is given below :
| Usage: patcher [xboxdash-file] [-bak] [-f0nts]|
You must specify either the -f0nts or -bak flag
to specify which string to patch.
Example : patcher xboxdash.xbe -f0nts

Copy your xboxdash.xbe to the patcher directory.
Open a command prompt and navigate to the patcher dir.
Then execute the patcher as described in the first post (patcher xboxdash.xbe -f0nts).

|ldots - I tried your patcher on my original xboxdash.xbe. It said it patched successfuly 2 times. I have the basic UDE setup with the f0nts dir. When I manually launch out.xbe it just hangs. Any ideas on what I could be doing wrong?|
is this with tHc,
in this case, the correct file/folders also need to be in c:
