ok, lots of goodies in here. i doubt anyone will read this but i still enjoy playing with the dash....

for proper BGMESH in any and every menu of the dash with a fully functional config option (improved code robbed from commemorative wink.gif :

IPB Image

start by opening your default.xap / default.xip

and right at the top underneath "DEF theXboxNetwork XboxNetwork" add :

CODE
DEF theBGMesh Layer
{
    viewpoint Viewpoint
    {
        fieldOfView 1.2
        position -500 0 0
    }

    children
    [
        DEF theBGMeshTransform Transform
        {
            children
            [
                DEF theBGMeshInline Inline
                {
                    preload true
                    url "bg_mesh/default.xap"
/*
                    function onLoad()
                    {
                        LoadBGMeshValues();
                    }
*/
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}


then search for
CODE
ApplyDashStyle();

and paste
CODE
LoadBGMeshValues();
underneath

finally at the end of default.xap add

CODE
///////////////////////////////////////////DNA//////////////////////////////////////

function LoadBGMeshValues()
{
    var IniFile = new Settings;
    IniFile.SetIniSection( "BGMesh" );
    var c = theBGMeshInline.children[0];

    ///dna spinner
    var x = IniFile.GetIniValue( "BGMesh1-rpm" );
    var y = IniFile.GetIniValue( "BGMesh2-rpm" );
    var z = IniFile.GetIniValue( "BGMesh3-rpm" );
    //if((x == "") | (y == "") | (z == "")) { x = 2; y = 2; z = 2; }
    if((x == "") & (y == "") & (z == "")) { x = 2; y = 2; z = 2; }
    c.theDNA1.children[0].rpm = x;
    c.theDNA3.children[0].rpm = y;
    c.theDNA5.children[0].rpm = z;

    ///mesh and alpha
    var theDNA = IniFile.GetIniValue( "BGMesh" );
        var DNAAlpha = IniFile.GetIniValue( "Alpha" );

        c.DNA5_Mesh.url = "spirals.xm";
        c.theDNA1.SetAlpha(DNAAlpha);
        c.theDNA3.SetAlpha(DNAAlpha);
        c.theDNA5.SetAlpha(DNAAlpha);
    }

    else if (theDNA == "off")
    {
        c.theDNA1.SetAlpha(0);
        c.theDNA3.SetAlpha(0);
        c.theDNA5.SetAlpha(0);
    }

    else if (theDNA == "dna")

        c.theDNA5.SetAlpha(DNAAlpha);
    }

    IniFile.CloseIniFile();
}

///////////////////////////////////////////DNA END//////////////////////////////////


now for default.xip / config.xip

search for
CODE
BuildMainList()


and add this to the function
CODE
    configList[i] = "BG Mesh:";
    configValues[i] = "c-BGMesh-BGMesh";
    configSelect[i] = "ToggleBGMesh()";
    i = i + 1;
    configList[i] = "BG Mesh Alpha:";
    configValues[i] = "c-BGMesh-Alpha";
    configSelect[i] = "ConfigKeyB()";
    i = i + 1;
    configList[i] = "Mesh 1 Rpm:";
    configValues[i] = "c-BGMesh-BGMesh1 rpm";
    configSelect[i] = "ConfigKeyB()";
    i = i + 1;
    configList[i] = "Mesh 2 Rpm:";
    configValues[i] = "c-BGMesh-BGMesh2 rpm";
    configSelect[i] = "ConfigKeyB()";
    i = i + 1;
    configList[i] = "Mesh 3 Rpm:";
    configValues[i] = "c-BGMesh-BGMesh3 rpm";
    configSelect[i] = "ConfigKeyB()";
    i = i + 1;


then at the very bottom of config.xap add
CODE
function ToggleBGMesh()
{
    var c = theConfigPanel.children[0].children[0];
    var b = c.theRightSlots.children[LV2Item].children[0].geometry.text;
    if(b.toLowerCase() == "chains") { RefreshMenu("spirals"); }
    else if(b.toLowerCase() == "off") { RefreshMenu("dna"); }
    else if(b.toLowerCase() == "dna") { RefreshMenu("chains"); }
    else if(b.toLowerCase() == "chains") { RefreshMenu("spirals"); }
    else if(b.toLowerCase() == "spirals") { RefreshMenu("squigles"); }
    else if(b.toLowerCase() == "squigles") { RefreshMenu("corkscrews"); }
    else if(b.toLowerCase() == "corkscrews") { RefreshMenu("off"); }
}


then you will need to create a xip file called "bg_mesh.xip"

save this as "default.xap" and add it to the .xip file along with "backing_dna.xm" "backing_dna_sides.xm" "backing_squiggles.xm" "backing_squiggles_sides.xm" "chain.xm" "corkscrews.xm" and "spirals.xm"

to save stupidly large posts.... http://pastebin.com/f53390490

and finally add "MEM_L2_sc_pod_icon-FACES.xm" from music_play_edit.xip to settings.xip.

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

to toggle whether background images are on or off read on:

replace
CODE
DEF theBackground
with
CODE
DEF theBackground Group
{
    children
    [
        DEF background0 Background{ skyColor 0 0 0  }
        DEF background1 Background{ skyColor 0 0 0 backdrop ImageTexture { url "background.xbx" }}
    ]
}

function LoadBackground()
{
    var IniFile = new Settings;
    IniFile.SetIniSection( "Backgrounds" );
    var a = IniFile.GetIniValue( "On" );
    IniFile.CloseIniFile();
    if( a == "true" )
        {
            theBackground.children[0].isBound = false;
            theBackground.children[1].isBound = true;
        }
        else if( a == "false" )
        {  
            theBackground.children[0].isBound = true;
            theBackground.children[1].isBound = false;
        }
}


then search for
CODE
ApplyDashStyle();
and add
CODE
LoadBackground();
beneath.

then in default.xip / config.xap add [/code]
CODE
    configList[i] = "Enable Backgrounds:";
    configValues[i] = "c-Backgrounds-On";
    configSelect[i] = "ToggleTF()";
    i = i + 1;[code]
to
CODE
BuildMainList()


and finally in uix.ini add
CODE
[Backgrounds]
On = True"


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

this will toggle the amount of floating in the dash and submenus, to simply on or off.....

in default.xip / default.xap search for
CODE
function ApplyDashStyle()
and just after the first bracket of the function add
CODE
WaverCheck();
then comment out all of the instances of
CODE
theScreen.MotionStart();
below.

then add
CODE
function WaverCheck()
{    
    var IniFile = new Settings;
    IniFile.SetIniSection( "Dash Waver" );
    var a = IniFile.GetIniValue( "On" );
    IniFile.CloseIniFile();
    
    if( a == "true" ) { theScreen.MotionStart(); }
    else if( a == "false" ) { theScreen.MotionStop(); }
}
to the bottom of the .xap

next is config.xap, and you'll need to add
CODE
    configList[i] = "Floating Dash:";
    configValues[i] = "c-Dash Waver-On";
    configSelect[i] = "ToggleTF()";
    i = i + 1;


and finally in uix.ini add
CODE
[Dash Waver]
On = true


see http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=634001 for how to get the Music_play_ediit_with_subs working and have the old dropdown menus

Ok, hope someone reads this. I've decided to reinstall UIX as my default dash, because it looks so great and reminds me of the original!


I love the look of the games menu above, and made the modification to the files as explained, but it hasn't changed the menu in UIX.

Is there some way I have to alter UIX to "activate" this menu, or is that built in to the code above already?

Thanks,

Ted

I haven't worked with it for a while, but do try clearing the cache first
