Anyone Up For A Simple, Yet Very Cool Script?
Posted 05 September 2004 - 11:37 PM
I'm still working on the xloader. While I was working on this I thought of something that would be a really great script for the average user. I understand that the features of the new release will probably include the ability to pull these off of the internet. But until then, I thought, I would include with my installer some folders full of (help screens, Thumbnails, Preview Videos ans such). Now, what I thought might be really cool, is a simple script that they could run when ever they copy a new game down to the harddrive. When they run it, it would automatically go copy the correct media files for that game/app from the media folder into the game/app folder. I guess there are a number of ways that this could be done. I was thinking of using the xbeid? then either name the files with that number, or put those files into folders that match the xbeid. or even perhaps have a little data file that related which media files goto which xbeids. I think the simplest way would probably be to have folders named after the xbeid. So you could have a structure like...
Anyway, just an idea... I would love to write it myself but Im just so busy with doing the other X-Loader scripts and other projects. I just can't spare the time for now...

check the downloadable content thread in the WIP forum

SDG3: You could have a look at the downloadable content thing and base it off that, with the difference that files are fetched off cd instead of online.

Sorry, should have been more clear... geniusalz has got the idea though. I am looking strictly at scripts that can be released and used on the Released version. I look forward to the next public release, but til then I want to make things that the gen. public can use right now...
I will take a look at that thread though... like geniusalz said, I can probably take what was already done and modify it... Just have to find the time... thx again...
