This is a complete snapshot of what was in SVN at the time the build was compiled, with just a few small additions:
+ Killarny & Nuka1195 & Pike's Apple Movie Trailers (AMT) SVN pre0.99.2 rev1804 [scripts/Apple Movie Trailers]
+ EnderW & Blittan's XBMCScripts Installer 1.8 SCRIPT [scripts/XBMCScripts]

Special Note From T3CH:
QUOTE

* BBB's T3CH Upgrader updated to 1.4
* I'm including the >>XBMC Win32 PC environment<<.exe that is meant for skinners & python developers, read more about the concept here. It was built using Microsoft DirectX Summer 2004 SDK.
* I've tweaked the win32 >>run_me_first.bat<< so it runs and then unmounts the virtual drives when you exit.
* If you want to report bugs, please do it the PROPER way, see http://xbmc.org/wiki...oper_Bug_Report

INSTALL NOTES from T3CH readme/nfo:
QUOTE

* APPLICATION INSTALL
- Fresh Install: Transfer _whole_ XBMC folder to your APPS folder (or where you want it).
- Upgrade: Backup the XBMC\UserData folder. Transfer whole XBMC folder to Xbox. Overwrite UserData folder with your backed up copy.

* DASHBOARD INSTALL (SOFTMODS)
ARE NOT COVERED IN THIS README, SEE http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=406656

* DASHBOARD INSTALL
- Option 1. Team XBMC's shortcut tool.
It's included in the _tools folder as <<SHORTCUT by TEAM XBMC.xbe>> + <<SHORTCUT by TEAM XBMC.cfg>>.
Instructions here: http://xbmc.org/wiki...=As_a_Dashboard (Option 1).
Rename the <<SHORTCUT by TEAM XBMC.xbe>>+.cfg & also EDIT the .cfg so it matches your config.
See APPLICATION INSTALL above.
- Option 2. Thanks to an app called 'Team UIX's Xbe Shortcut Maker v1.0' by JbOnE, it's now easy...
Transfer contents of XBMC folder (this is VERY important since the tool is hardcoded) TO "E:\APPS\XBMC\". Rename <<SHORTCUT by TEAM UIX.xbe>> to something your bios can boot (see http://xbmc.org/wiki...=As_a_Dashboard or read your BIOS README) and transfer to location your mod solution boots. No need to fiddle with HOME tag anymore, and future upgrades you need not to worry about this file (unless you move XBMC).

* AN INTRODUCTION TO PLUGINS
XBMC has a system for Media plugins to allow browsing of remote content (Internet) using the regular filesystem approach.
Plugins are put inside >>XBMC/plugins/<video/music/pictures>/<< (I already do this for the one/s I include), furthermore they also need to be installed as a source in (video/music/pictures).
You do this install by using the contextmenu choice >>Add New Source<< while in ROOT list and then choosing ***Plugins as source.
Then you highlight (not select) the folder of the plugin you want to install. It will be saved inside sources.xml for future.

* WIN32 PC ENVIRONMENT INSTRUCTIONS (WIN32 FOLDER)
Good to know, this requires DirectX9 Runtimes to be installed. Also this doesn't work with all graphics cards.
You need to:
- Copy XBMC_PC.exe & 'run_me_first.bat' from win32 to XBMC folder
- Run 'run_me_first.bat'
- Run XBMC_PC.exe

* UPGRADE TIPS
If you're updating from a VERY old/bad build you may get issues. Follow these simple rules:
- Replace (FTP OVERWRITE) all files in your XBMC folder with fresh ones from your new build
- Delete old settings (from UserData/guisettings.xml)
- In some rare cases some of the database files in UserData/Database/*.db may need manual deletion (usually if they are very old). Note: This loses all per file settings you made with the old build!



INFORMATION from T3CH readme/nfo:

I just updated my XBMC and now it seems my Project Mayhem III skin is messed up. I use XBMC as an APP and use the shortcut method. I downloaded 2/10, unzipped and overwrote all the directories under XBMC. Now I am missing the actual text for most options. XBMC will load, Project Mayhem skin comes on and I have all the actual option places for Video, Music, Pictures, settings etc but it is missing the text. Also affecting submenus.

I am able to load another skin xSOFT and that works fine. Tried Project Mayhem 1 remix skin and it is also missing text. I tried the 1/26 version and I am getting the same thing. I have not updated my XBMC in some time so I fear I missed something.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

That's your problem. Don't overwrite XBMC files, delete and replace, and be sure to do it when XBMC isn't actually running.

For anyone who wants the Bookmarks/Shortcuts back my add on kit still works for this Build. The Bookmarks/Shortcuts were removed on 2008-01-04.

thanks for the updates and all... but what i wanna know is when will there be a 'stable' build of XBMC? ... cause how many features can they add before it gets rather pointless after a while? (no disrespect intended... im just asking a serious question) ... cause it seems like they would be more concerned with getting stuff 'working' good and then fine tune the code and then make a stable version... cause like i said before it was like November 2006 the last time we had a stable XBMC build.

im not whining etc etc... just asking is all wink.gif

Hi, I am having the issue described by Yurkinator above. All of the text is missing from my mayhem skin. XBMC is the only dashboard running on my box so I am not sure how I can ftp over the new build without xbmc running. I could of sworn I updated xbmc this same way before but this time it is not working. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help you can provide!

yeah download a dashboard like UnleashX and then run it as a application from XBMC and then load up UnleashX and use it's ftp to gain accesss to the xbox's hard drive then delete XBMC folder and then transfer in the new copy and reboot xbox and wham your golden and running new XBMC wink.gif

just make SURE when you transfer in the new XBMC that the folder paths are all the same as before like for example... E:\XBMC\default.xbe , i think u get the picture wink.gif

Thank you so much for keeping XBMC strong and keeping up with the releases! I really hope the linux/MAC port goes well and brings new inspiration (and hopefully themes/skins) and development in the future! I also hope that each skin/theme that are created for the linux/mac version are able to be ported with ease or even better multiplatform all around. I just don't want to feel like the native format it was created on get left in the dark. Lets also not forget about more scripts!

Quoted from the new XBMC.ORG site
QUOTE
Please don't try and use XBMC.COM as this domain is owned by none other than Randy Saaf of MediaDefender (!)


What the F***? Does this make sense to anyone?


EDIT: also, I've been trying to thumbnail my games and emulators as box art and icons. How can I go about doing this and where could I get the icons/boxart do I have to manually rename and setup each one for each game? thanks!

Media Defender is a company that tries to, well, defend media. They get payed by publishers.

A little while back some hacker found a massive loophole in their email security, and posted about 700mb worth of their internal emails on various torrent sites (Google "media defender emails" for some entertaining reading). It was revealed that not all their methods were entirely legal, and The Pirate Bay apparently even pressed charges against certain publishing companies. Not sure where that ended up.

I thought they mainly worked against torrent sites (planting fake torrents etc), so I've got no idea what they're doing with XBMC's domain name. Very likely they're up to no good and they quite simply shouldn't have it. I wonder if anything can be done to take it off them?
