I cant get it to load no matter what I do. Tried running in c e and F and nothing. edited the xbx so it knew where to find the correct folder. Using the latest xecuter bios by the way. One idea that would be cool if it could be done is include video previews like unleashx or is that even a possibility?

Loads up on every drive

This is my first time using this dashboard so I don't know if this hasn't been implemented yet or what, but when I try to delete a soundtrack using memory manager.... it doesn't actually delete it. Sure it says it is, but the soundtracks still there, and I can still play it.

Other than that, all the bugs I spotted have been psoted already. Nice dashbaord, thanks.

This is the list of my emus:

DOSXbox
ExultX

* You cant play music if you edit Music on Boot to False.

* if the game has multiple xbe's in the same folder it shows them all

Like Silent Scope it has 3 games in the same folder so i get

Silent Scope ,Silent Scope 2 ,Silent Scope 3 ,Silent Scope Complete

Top Spin is worse

i get , Top Spin , Top Spin (career), Top Spin (game) , Top Spin (menu) , Top Spin (online) , Top Spin (Playercreator) , Top Spin (shop) ,Top Spin (stop) , Top Spin (training)

* skins dont change the entire dashboard just the tabs. the only one that changes complete is Blue and Green.

unsure.gif is there another orb?

Definetly a bug. Transfered SAME EXACT FILES to a clean HDD and it booted up like magic, but on my Xbox there is something (like countless others) that gives you a black screen. If you are having problems, just wait for the bug to be discovered because until then there isnt much you can do to figure out why it does this. Looks like the biggest bug of all with this dash and people just want to blame it on user error, but you CANNOT if the same exact configuration works on a clean HDD. Im no newb and can handle a simple path connfig.

EDIT**

Okay Tigerhawk has cracked it. The confilct IS in the games. Changed mine to Games1 (doesnt exist on my HDD) and boots up.

Otherwise there are two things that I do not like:

The icons look terrible in the entire window. (Not the reversed thing its just washed out and it interferres with the text- bring back that cube!)

No more config from the dash itself? (I hope this returns in the final.)

Everything else is top notch. Give yourself a pat on the back JBone. Incredible work.

**Skins do change the reason the otehr dont work is because they havent had thier xbx edited yet , in the skins folder edit each colour for the dif cell parts and so on smile.gif

TigerHawk (and others) what value are you exactly changing?

I assume it's this one

[Games Menu]
Name=Games
Path=gamez <--- changing here right?

Or do I need to change as well here:

SubMenu1Type=apps
SubMenu0Type=games

??????
