Hello,
XBMC Skin Manager is a Windows program that download/update, build and upload automatically skins from XBMC Skinning Project and HTTP links to your xbox.
There is a screenshot:
IPB Image


Using : unzip the archive where you want and run XBMC Skin Manager.exe, fill all config forms, check the skins you want working on, and click start !
(more detailed user guide on website)

Notes :
  • it's only tested on XBMC, UnleashX and Avalaunch FTP servers.
  • The application can seem frozen while operations, it's normal, don't kill it !


To skins creators : if you want to see your skin on XBMC Skin Manager, please PM me.

Just tried it, and it works brilliantly. Perfect app to tie all the XBMC skins together.

Excellent job! Thanks. beerchug.gif

EDIT: Just one thing about its operation. When the program starts to checkout, the program window goes blank (white), and appears as if its not working, though it is working. Can you add some kind of indicator bar so the app shows its progress? Other than that, it worked perfectly.

Awesome pop.gif

A progress bar would be nice. Windows gave the (not responding) in the title bar for me but I just waited and everything worked fine.

Tried your latest version, and it works great. The status screen works and the skin reset function worked great. Thanks for the hard work.

Just a note to those wanting to grab the latest MC360 (skin rev. 1006 or later). If your using an XBMC T3CH build dated November 17th 2007 Svn Rev10770 Build or older, you'll want to hold off updating the MC360 skin until T3CH releases a newer build, or compile your own build of XBMC from the latest SVN, since theres been a change to MC360's string localization, which is the same as XBMC and you will need an XBMC revision 10780 or later for the latest MC360 skin to be compatiable.

This also affects Basic-101 and probably soon Xbox-Classic and Vision (if I get bored enough to do them) soon

Never used this app but maybe if it hasn't allready got one it needs a changelog reader for the SVN

The app have a changelog reader for SVN skins.
Thanks for BAT file updating, Basics-101 building should work now if you have SVN revision 1011+.

Hello,
version 0.6 has been released !
There is the changelog :
  • Completely rewritten from scratch (lots of little adds, changes and bugfixes)
  • XML compatibiliy with 0.5x is broken
  • removed : XML tag langfolder (replaced by choicefolder type 2)
  • added : XML tag choicefolder (2 variants), buildfolder
  • changed : now real skin directory is auto-detected (even if skin name and directory are named differently). So now [BUILDdir] macro always works.
  • Language files use same XML pattern as XBMC (thx to Nuka1195 for parser)
  • Anonymous stats are sent about skins downloads (a stats page will appear soon)
As you can see in chagelog, it's a complete code rewriting but there is no big change nor new feature.

I can't seem to select "Download/Update" in the Configuration tab; it is grayed out.

Strange... This is grayed when network detection fails. Have you an error message at starting ?
Have you a proxy ? (because it's not handled)

No error message. No proxy. I have a firewall, but the "XBMCSm.exe" is in the "Allow" list, and I know that is working because it is detecting that there are new versions of skins (including the "skin" XBMC Skin Manager), and the FTP transfer to the Xbox is fine.. Firewall is Norton Internet Security, btw (just using it until the free trial runs out, then I'll go get a real program to use). The previous version was working fine. Updated as per instructions, deleting everything but the Skins directory, and extracting to original folder, then updated the firewall to make sure it didn't recognize that XBMCsm.exe had changed.

BTW, I just now disabled the firewall, and same problem.
