I have dvd2xbox successfully installed. I copied a game to my G drive of my xbox just fine. I was wondering if the only way to launch this game was through dvd2xbox. I realize I could ftp to the xbox and exit the evox.ini file, but is it possible to list the game on evox etc without ftping to the xbox?

You need to edit the ini file, no other option. Its not difficult, and you'll only need to make the change once for it to auto-add the new items.

if you uploaded it to your games folder it should just appear in the games menu. I upload mine to F:/games/ and they just appear in my games menu on avalaunch and evox right away. So yeah, you'll probably just have to edit the ini file, not too much trouble...

I can edit the INI file now, but won't be able to do it very often. Are you saying that there is a way to set it up to auto add the games to evox.ini file? If so let me know how this can be done or point me in the right directtion.

I uploaded it to g:/. I can easily make the change and upload it to g:/games. What needs to be added to the ini file to make it auto add? Are you talking evox.ini or the dvd2xbox ini file?

It's Evox.ini that you need to edit (C:\evox.ini)

Basically, in the Menu section, you need to add a section for G:\Games.

QUOTE
Section "Root"
{
    Section "My Games"
    {
        AutoAddItem "g:\games"
        SortAll
    }

   
    Section "My Applications"
    {
        AutoAddItem "f:\apps"
        SortAll
    }
}

This will make all games ripped into G:\Games appear on the evox menu. Note that there is probably a game section there already for the F drive. so basically, you could just add the autoadd line:

QUOTE
Section "Root"
{
    Section "My Games"
    {
        AutoAddItem "f:\games"
        AutoAddItem "g:\games"
        SortAll
    }
   
    Section "My Applications"
    {
        AutoAddItem "f:\apps"
        SortAll
    }
}


NOTE: If you just put it in G:\ instead of G:\games, then just put G:\ instead of G:\games.

Alrite, make sure you upload it to the games folder then change this:

CODE

Section "System Utils"
{
 Item "Settings",ID_Settings
 Item "Flash BIOS",ID_Flash_Bios
 Item "Backup",ID_Backup
 Item "Skins",ID_Skins
}
Section  "Launch Menu"
{
  Section "Games"
 {
  AutoAddItem "e:\games\"
  AutoAddItem "f:\games\"
  SortAll
 }
 Section "Apps"
 {
  AutoAddItem "e:\apps\"
   AutoAddItem "f:\apps\"
  SortAll
 }
}
}


to this:

CODE

Section "System Utils"
{
 Item "Settings",ID_Settings
 Item "Flash BIOS",ID_Flash_Bios
 Item "Backup",ID_Backup
 Item "Skins",ID_Skins
}
Section  "Launch Menu"
{
  Section "Games"
 {
  AutoAddItem "g:\apps\"
  AutoAddItem "e:\games\"
  AutoAddItem "f:\games\"
  SortAll
 }
 Section "Apps"
 {
  AutoAddItem "g:\apps\"
  AutoAddItem "e:\apps\"
   AutoAddItem "f:\apps\"
  SortAll
 }
}
}


that way you'll have everything you download to the G: drive auto add to the menu
