Ok, I have THC Lite as my Primary Dash, but I saw this awesome skin and I liked the picture that was in the orb. Here is the THC skin where I want to get the orb from:

http://www.allxboxsk...p?app=thc&cat=0

(Its the first skin with the pills.)

So basically, I want to somehow extract that pill found in the orb and insert it into my THC Lite skin. The skin I have for Lite, is the regular blue skin.

Can somebody please tell me how to do this. Or just give me the files I need to insert and tell me where to insert them in the THC lite files.

Thanks! laugh.gif

No, I left in on. I tried taking some other files from that skin and importing them into the THC skin, but there was very little effect...

Hmm...

if yr dash is not texturized the most 'effect' you'll get will be using the hexbe preset if it is textured then changing the texture will greatly change the appearence of yr dash. oh, and unless you are going to create a new DEF (in code) to see yr orb pic _with_ the thc orb, the _only_ way tho see the xbox4 pic is to turn it off in the config.

this is all coverred in the pinned topics.

Alright, I took a look at the pinned topics, and couldn't find anything explaining what I want to do, which is too have the ORB in THC Lite, but to have the xbox4.xbx image displayed inside the the orb.

If there is a tutorial somewhere, please tell me...

Thanks!

By, the way...

I can see the pill now, after I turned the orb off. The edges of it are partly transparent, and it looks good. Now I just need the orb around it.

I'm thinking to do this, I would have to edit the code in the mainmenu5.xip or default.xip so the dash would know that it would have to take the xbox4.xbx, use the coordinates for inside the orb(i might have to somehow get them), and display it the xbox4.xbx image there.

Is there a tutorial for this, or something similiar to this?

Thanks!

ok try this, i haven't tested it but should work.

paste this:

CODE
DEF MyNewOrb Transform
{
   children
   [
       Shape
       {
           appearance Appearance
           {
               material MaxMaterial
               {
                   name "MainMenuOrb"

               }
               texture ImageTexture
               {
                   url "orbpic.xbx"  //call the pic what you like just put its name here. remove this text before u paste
               }
           }
           geometry DEF Main_pod_backing01-FACES Mesh { url "Main_pod_backing01-FACES.xm" }
       }
   ]
   rotation -0.993700 -0.088440 0.068970 -1.576000
   scale 1.440000 1.440000 1.440000
   scaleOrientation 0.036530 0.975200 0.218400 -0.396500
   translation -58.220001 -12.680000 29.980000
}


above 'DEF Main_pod_backing02 Transform' in default.xap/mainmenu5.xip. then put the 'wot_ever_u_called_it.xbx' in mainmenu5.xip. this will allow to to turn the tHcorb on - and - see yr pic.

but, better yet, why dont you hit up flavor for a copy of his 3d pill? or even better yet - make your own in a 3d prog and convert it to .xm with UIX's awesome new .xm tool.

Thanks man, I'll try this very soon.

I have PMed flavor like three times asking him for the Pill or the entire pill skin, but he hasn't replied. If I could make my own models, I would. I tried using MilkShape 3D, but my models sucked. That was like a year ago...

Nice! It worked! Thanks Man! That's awesome!

Yeah, I should still try to contact flavor, because that's a real 3D model(or I should learn how to model).

Thanks a lot.

Once I find a place to host it, I will do it.

By, that way how do I take a screen shot of the dash. I know its a combination of buttons, but I'm not sure where the screen shot is stored once its taken.
