Xbox Dash Next
Posted 02 October 2004 - 07:07 PM
-When you hit x and pull up the "master menu", music seems fine, but if you go select menu's it works the first time, but if you get out and go back in, cant use it
-when you select menu's, and you scroll across the other options, it remains at menu's but with overlapping text of the other objects your selecting
-Also getting out of the master menu and going back in will kill your A button and you cant select anything except music.
-selecting system info locks buttons except for B which just takes you out of menu and have to hit it twice to get out.
-when selecting "menu" it just sticks at the "button" text and wont let you select anything
-cant get "user accounts", "settings", "skins", "explorer", or "system info" to work at all. Maybe you have to edit the dashboard xbx first? Dont know.
-Cant select "mode" in music panel
-Cant adjust volume but this is probably because i just dont know which button does it but ive selected everything i think
-EQ is broken (i think thats what it is?)
-When selecting hard drive, you can see a white box as the menu quickly comes at you
-As said emulators doesnt work if you have no emu's in the emulator folder, just hangs with loud noise (im gonna put some on to see if it works)
Hope im not being repetitive, I read through so shouldnt be. Love the direction this is going in and ive ran the ftp like a bastard and cant break it yet!

xboxdashnext.xbe and xbx on e:
xboxdashnext dir on e:
xbx path - Dashboard Data Path=E:\XboxDashNext
The way I've had it set up and running fine is...
I have a folder inside my dashboards, folder containing the xbe and xbx, named Xbox Dash Next
I then have XDN in a folder named Xbox Dash Next in the root of E:
xboxdashnext should look like :
Current Skin=MS Dash - Blue
Dashboard Data Path=E:\Xbox Dash Next
If you noticed, the main folder of XDN is actually extracted as Xbox Dash Next NOT XboxDashNext. So a straight ftp over probably wouldn't work.
Sorry about the simple slip up on the part of XDN.
discworld, did you set up the ftp exactly like you need it to be?
I, and a lot of other people have tested it out fine last night...
at first I didnt realize my gateway was different. Check yours out and see.

Hold the right trigger and use up and down in the music panel. On the main screen it's left and right on the left thumb.

Booted up from F drive... place the xboxnext folder in F with the xBE> and xbx file in the root of F outside of the Xboxnext foler... launced it from file manager from XBMC...
I get the blue dash with three tabs.... MEMEORY,,, HARDRIVE,,, AND SETTINGS.
I GO TO hard drive .. it list .. games, emulators, etc.... click on any tabs from Harddrive Tab ,,, xbox freezes.. up... probably due to incorrect paths.. Also... i did get that weird noise when going into settings.. but go back out and then back in it goes away.... FTP workes...?? So far thats All I got for now.........

and i noticed that if you have the music (or whatever its called) menu up, and try to do wirefame, it only does it as long as you hold B, but if you go wireframe, then there, it stays wireframe

this effects about %50 of XDN users so far
the dash doesnt load!
Im running x2_4983.06_512k.bin as my bios
official x2 bios, not edited
it loads evoxdash.xbe
on my xbox
heres how I got mine to load.....
I have the older thc dashboard running as evoxdash.xbe
I put the folder "Xbox Dash Next" into my f:\ drive like so
f/Xbox Dash Next/
now I go into the dashboard dir
and create a dir called XDN like so
I now put the files XboxDashNext.xbe and XboxDashNext.xbx into this dir like so
then in that dir rename the XboxDashNext.xbe file to default.xbe like so..
then load up the old thc dash, and go to dashboards, and run the thc beta

the popup menu(when you press X) seems to not work at all for me, Ftp seems normal for my crappy network, and thats all I've noticed so far...

As it appears that a good 75% or so of the people that have tried to install the new XDN have managed to get a black screen freeze, I have done some tinkering with this matter.
While doing so, and recalling some of the issues with the good-old THC, I was wondering if this issue is related to the M$ Dash version which resides on the user's machine.
A quick poll that I have done with some of the MIRC users have indicated that most of them had issues running THC as well (popping out that dreaded error 21).
Developers - might this be it?

as the readme states there were some diff bios issues in testing. known compatable bioses...
X2 4981 and up, IND bios
...thats it, nothing was tested on any soft or hard or squishy exploit (hehe) - just chips and tsops with these bioses.
the majority of the 'bugs' listed in this page of the thread are scripting issues - nothing that is really a hard coded problem. Of course things don't work in the controlpanel - as the readme states this is nothing more than the xips from the tHc wip with some tweaks to use the new xbe. Nothing in this release is meant to simply be taken as is - this is a scriptable dash - and I just gave you a whole list of new scriptable things you can do - this release is for you people to test the new stuff and gimme feedback on how it does or doesn't work for you, not to say "not all the buttons in the control panel don't work". as for the user error factor, it's this simple... you have a folder, an xbe, and an xbx. put the folder wherever you want, lets say you choose E:\dashboards\XDN and you decide to change the folder name to XDN Data, you must edit the xbx in notepad so the path is now
that's it - put the xbx and the xbe anywhere you want to launch it from ( you can even throw it all in E:\dashboards\XDN\XDN Data ) and it'll run for ya. simple 'debugging': if it hangs on a black screen it is looking for one of the xbx's, either your path is wrong in the xbx or you added one too many '\'s (notice you only need one), if it reboots to dash on you it's most likely a bios issue. thx much for the feedback so far - and start scripting

Also couldn't get it working when I had the xbx and xbe files on the C drive and the Xbox Dash Next folder in F:\Dashboards\XDN\Xbox Dash Next. Got it to work by just moving the xbe and xbx files to the XDN folder and then renaming to default.xbe though.

More than likely what you have stated...bios related...thx for the input...
