I was hoping one of you elite's in here could give a quik explination on this. Is the flubber and the X logo scenes saves within the tsop? Also, if any changes are made to this (color, size, actual picture) is it more considered a temp alteration via a new bios with different codecs, or an actual changing in the codecs in the tsop, or possibly both depending on what one chooses??

the whole flubber animation and the splash screen are located in the kernel portion of the bios. changing the values that determine how it looks will remain unchanged as long as you use that specific bios.

the new IND-BIOS is an exception. in it's code, there are references to a config file that is read from the HD. when loaded, this bios reads the config and then displays the animation depending on what is found in the file. this way, you don't need to edit and re-flash your bios to look at the changes.

the XDK is a compiler used to create xbox executables (.xbe). i also has various tools and apps used for xbox development. i'm not quite sure what you mean with the second part of you question...if this was somewhat related to your 1st question.

you do need source to compile something with the XDK.

How can i go about programming a personal dashboard for myself? and how would i compile this to a .xbe file? And 1 more..(sorry). If 1 was to program a dash or something how could it be done with out the source codes of the original to alter, im sure u can't just make something up that the xbox was never meant to read??

there is a simple answer to this: if you don't have the source, you'll need to write the code yourself from scratch.

i'm getting the feeling that you don't quite know what you're talking about.
have you ever programmed?

yes, the XDK compiles XBE executables
BTW, XDK is not a type of compiler...it is the official MS compiler that developers use to create their games.

apps and dashes: yes
bioses: not too sure what is used. to my knowledge, the XDK can't compile the xbox kernel but I'm sure there is a way since the Xecuter and IND-BIOS bioses are compiled from source i believe. might want to ask this in the dev forum.
