k first i like to say, thx for releasing some great stuff teamuix, its a beautiful dash

k my problem 1

when i left the [Dashboards]/[Emulators] as defaults, it shows up as 0 title like it didnt find anything

if i change the paths to (it restarts the xbox when i click on dashboards and emulatoers in harddrive section)

[Emulators]
Name=Emulators
Path=emu

[Dashboards]
Name=Dashboaards
Path=dash

emu folder is located in f:/emu and g:/emu but they're empty

dash folder is only in my f:/dash

is that folder is f:/dash
___________________/evox
___________________/uix

--------------------------------------

recently i got myself a 2.4 gb avi file yes you're probably r like wtf <<;; and is unable to play it but the interesting is that evox/xbmc returns the dash as 2.4 gb
while uix returns it as -1,824,827,392 and on my computer its 2.29 GB (2,470,139,904 bytes)

j/w is there a limit on a file size, ntfs / fat32 ???

thx keep up the great work

1 - delete the save dir for the dash E:\\UDAUA\\0ffeeff0, this will clear out the cached menus with nothing in them and let you be able to use ones made from the correct paths you entered.

2 - listing from g partition is part of the update fixes to be released tonight

3 - file size is a glitch i'm trying to square away - apparently the returnable scriptable values overload with really values which is why you get the - number value

dry.gif I'm having sort of the same problem...

In the UIX readme they state:
"Hard Drive Menu: Will load title lists on 1st use. To refresh the list of a given menu press Y in
the menu and you will be prompted to resfresh the cache. This will update the lists after adding or
removing a title from hd or after changing option to list titles from xbe internal names to using folder
names."


I don't get a chance to Press "Y" to refresh inside the Emulators menu, cause as soon as I press "A" to enter the Emulators menu, my system reboots!

I have never seen what's inside the emulators menu... it crashes before I get there. grr.gif

My UIX setup:
----------------
*Installed directly on F:\ drive right next to evoxdash.xbe
*My system first boots to EvoX, then I run UIX from there.
*I edited the uix.ini to read...
[Emulators]
Path=Apps\Emulators
Name=Emulators
*The emulators are found in f:\Apps\Emulators\

Should the ini read one of the following?:
Path=Apps\Emulators\
Path=f:\Apps\Emulators\
Path=Apps\\Emulators
Path=Apps/Emulators

...If someone could help, that would be cool cause I realy like this dash!

OK, I still can't get it to work.

I have made the folder f:\apps\dashboards\UIX\
and placed UIX.XBE and the user.interface.x.dash folder in there. I'm booting to EvoX then running UIX.

Every time I go into "Emulators" or "Dashboards" in UIX, I get a reboot.

Here is my UIX.ini:
[Music On Boot]
volume=0.95
enabled=true
[Main Menu Tabs]
Main Tab 4=System
Main Tab 3=Hard Drive
Main Tab 2=Hard Drive
Main Tab 1=Music
[AutoLaunch Media]
Launch On Insert=ask
[Naming Method]
use xbe names=true
[Dashboard Settings]
Current Skin=green
Dash Style=stock
[Network Settings]
XboxIPType=dhcp
XboxIP=192.168.0.100
SubnetMask=255.255.255.0
Gateway=192.168.0.1
FTP Login=xbox
FTP Password=xxxx
FTP Port=21
FTP Show Sizes=true
FTP Use Caps=false
[Applications]
Path=Apps
Name=Applications
[Dashboards]
Path=Apps\Dashboards
Name=Dashboards
[Emulators]
Path=Apps\Emulators
Name=Emulators
[Games]
Path=games
Name=Games


Does anyone see anything wrong with this setup? Any help would be appreciated,

-x

Update to help people out...

I Figured it out: UIX doesn't like you to have subfolders.
Place all of your Emulators, Dashboards & Games in folders on the root of your drive. Don't nest folders.


dry.gif Thanks to all of you above who responded & helped me figure this out. dry.gif

Hey jbone or anyone who knows about this issue and has fixed it,

My Xbox details:
- Xbox v1.6
- X3 modchip w/ x3_1959 BIOS
- Trying to use UIX as my main dashboard (unfortunately doesn't work!) <- duh!

Ok, so I tried the above quoted stuff, did not help.

My .ini file contains paths:

[Apps]
Path=F:\apps\
Name=Applications

[Games]
Path=F:\games\singleplayer\
Name=SinglePlayer

The other two (emulators, dashboards) are unchanged.

I am not a nooB, just did not have an account smile.gif. I am Intermediate biggrin.gif

Anyways, if you know how to resolve the issue besides putting my folders in the ROOT dir where UIX is, then please post it.

Thank you!

P.S. - UIX Rox!

Meaning the xbox still restarts for any of the four options (apps, games, emus, or dashes).

First of all: Do not put the drivename in the app path.
Second: Do not use subfolders (as stated). Anything you have menu pointing at has to be one single submenu down from the root of the drive.

Do you have paths "F:\EMULATORS" and "F:\DASHBOARDS" too? Then skip the "F:\" part.

Your INI section should look like this:


[Apps]
Name=Applications
Path=apps

[Games]
Name=SinglePlayer
Path=singleplayer

[Emulators]
Name=Emulators
Path=emulators

[Dashboards]
Name=Dashboards
Path=dashboards



And the respective stuff should have one own directory in the root of F:, so on the drive you should have the directories "apps", "singleplayer", "emulators" and "dashboards" situated directly in the F:\ root. You can not as of right now use several-level subdirectories, or even *one* subdirectory. Maybe TeamUIX might change this in future releases.

So, main things are:
All mapped paths *must* be direct subdirs under the F: root.
You shall *NOT* enter drivename and/or directory markings (i.e "/" or "\") in the path.


Hope this info helps. beerchug.gif

Hey ACARiD,

Thanks for the prompt reply.

I hate to say this but that didn't help biggrin.gif. I took everything pertaining UIX out of the xbox, downloaded latest copy available for download (today) and fireup the dash.

The original INI does not have paths. Therefore, I didn't touch that either. So I go on my merry way to HardDrive > Applications and the xbox restarts again.

UIX is my main dashboard located in C:\

I have in my F:\ drive
1) apps
2) games <- No more SinglePlayer, MultiPlayer - Just Games
3) emulators
4) dashboards

Now there is nothing wrong with the paths or the name that is in the INI and still the same problem. So I guess with v1.6 and X3 BIOS there isn't much luck until TeamUIX figures something out.

Anyways, thank you for your help and will keep messing with it until its fixed.
LateZ!

I would try to delete everything in e:\udata\0ffeeff0\

Then restart your dash & give it a try.

Hey the_xbox_guy,

That didn't work thats why I asked for someone who had it working. Apparently yours works which is cool, because I can't wait anymore biggrin.gif

Ya, deleting files did not work. However, there is one thing that I noticed when I was deleting file in 0ffeeff0. Before xbox would delete 23Files and 2Folders, and the last time I deleted 26Files and 2Folder, which tells me that something is happening but I cannot access my folders biggrin.gif

I can't even cache the files into the 0ffeeff0 folder myself (can't comprehend that much HEX) so that I don't have to worry about the INI anymore.

Like I said I will keep trying and keeping my fingers crossed.
Thank you for replying.

I have a 1.6 and the M8 Evox bios for 1.6 and I couldn't get it to work until I did this. It's wierd so bare with me.

Yeah the wierdest thing. I got the games and dashboards to show up. I had to copy the uix.xbe and it's folder directly to the f drive. Then I put my games in the games folder and my dashboards in a folder called dashboards both on the f drive as well. Then I renamed all the dash xbe's to default xbe and then I launch uix from f. Then I went to the individual menus and hit y and it worked they showed up. Then I could ftp the uix.xbe and it's folder over to my pc and back to the c drive and now it works. But it wouldn't work in c until I got it to see it in the f drive first. It's the wierdest thing!?

Don't ask why, I have no idea but it worked for me. Maybe it will work for you. huh.gif

P.S. After I did that it changed my ini to this


[Games]
Name=Games
Path=games
[HDDLoader]
Name=GameThief
Path=hddloader
[Dashboards]
Name=Dashboards
Path=dashboards
[Applications]
Name=Applications
Path=apps
[Network Settings]
FTP Use Caps=false
FTP Show Sizes=true
FTP Port=21
FTP Password=xbox
FTP Login=xbox
Gateway=192.168.0.1
SubnetMask=255.255.255.0
XboxIP=192.168.0.112
XboxIPType=dhcp
[Dashboard Settings]
Dash Style=stock
Current Skin=Blue
[Naming Method]
use xbe names=true
[AutoLaunch Media]
Launch On Insert=ask
[Main Menu Tabs]
Main Tab 1=Music
Main Tab 2=Hard Drive
Main Tab 3=Evox
Main Tab 4=System
[Music On Boot]
enabled=false
volume=0.89
[Emulators]
Path=hddloader
Name=Game Thief


Don't ask I have no idea.

P.P.S. the "game thief" thing is what I call px HDDLoader, and when I did it I left the drive names and paths for games, dashes, etc. the same as they were originally in the ini.
