Ive been searching for around 4 hours now and i am unable to find the template "sample" referred to in the xbox text tutorial pdf.
I have 3ds max 8 and deep exploration and would like to change the xbox text in my bios (X2 4981.67) but i cant find the text template (just a few dead links).
Does anyone know where i can find it or does anyone have it please? I just want to customise the bios (yes i know i could just use an evox m8 bios but thats too easy).

Thanks in advance smile.gif

Wow, no one still has this tiny file? In case i wasnt clear, its the 3dsmax sample template i need, the 3d model of the xbox text (and if anyone has a working link for deep exploration 2.1 -not 3.5- i would appreciate that too)

thanks in advance...

Hey would you mind making me one too if its not too hard? I was thinking something that just says 'GoTeamScotch'. I tried looking into this a while back and I got lost real quick sad.gif
I got my flubber and X screen all tricked out but never got far enough to edit models.

If not maybe you could give me tips on where to start?

I would also like to put in a request if its not too much trouble.

I want mine to say "Kbox" but before the "K" have another K close to it but a mirror image if that makes sense. So the 2 K's will almost make an X.

Something like this:

Well its not the exact one used in the tutorials but i may be able to use it as a template. Thanks anyway!

@goteamscotch: i think that would work out to be too many vertices, its best to keep the word as short as possible or it would be unreadable or just simply wouldnt work. If you want to get into bios model editing you'll need 3dsmax 8 and Deep Exploration. Theres a tut somewhere, if i can find the link i'll post it.

EDIT: Here: http://www.tdubel.co...xt_Tutorial.pdf

@kboxmod: thats shorter and should be more possible to create. I'll try making one using this template first, then if it works out i'll try to make you one. Its been a while since i last did this though lol (early 2004!).

The problem with modifying an x2 bios this way is the vertice limits. If you want a more complex boot logo/text i suggest trying a iND bios (such as 5003) which doesnt rely on vertices (i think bitmaps can be used which is much easier!)

I have my xbox v1.4 flashed tsop bios flashed with ind-bios 5003, I just don't know how to make the "xbox" text. The mslogo can be a bitmap, but the "X" or "xbox" have to be .x files.

Sorry i wasnt aware of that as i only really use x2 4981.06 or .67 bios's. if they have to be .x files its easy enough (as the bios doesnt have a limit on vertices if i recall correctly) to create your own. Theres a thread here where someone posted some files that you might like to take a look at:

Well i tried to open that xbox.max in 3dsmax 6 but it wont open as it appears to have been made in 3dsmax 7 or above sad.gif thanks anyway Kurse76.
I tried opening it in 3dsmax 9 which worked but when i click on the curved icon (as per the tutorial) it doesnt bring up the text editing options huh.gif
What i really need is the tutorials original XBOXTEXT.max as shown in the tutorial pdf here:
http://www.tdubel.co...xt_Tutorial.pdf
Its literally the mesh model of the xbox text from the bios - if i new how to extract the model from the bios that would help but i think thats beyond me...

If ANYONE has it please post a link (all the old links are dead!)

To make the models i used Rhino 3 and still do to this date a deep explorer 3.5 must be that version.

then i create models using an image as a template then use the point to point curves to make the shape then attach single mesh to each point to make the model hole then export to a format that deep explorer can handle then flip the faces so the point down this is a must for it to show on the screen then save as X format.

Here is one of my files all files are included so feel free to do as you want with it.
