360Dashit Content Indexer
-------------------------

2010/01/04
axc97c
version 0.01

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

Extract the zip to the 360dashit folder on your usb hard drive and run 360dashitIndexer.exe

This will scan the Content and Games sub directories and add the items found here to the
ini files for the dashboard.

It will look up genres and titles from the microsoft website and set all the categories up for
you.

Artwork files are not yet sorted out. It would be nice to be able to automatically retrieve
artwork for the games.
At the moment the artwork is set to look in game:\images\icon\TITLEID.png for the small icon,
game:\images\banner\TITLEID.png for the banners and game:\images\title\TITLEID.png for the
rectangular image with each game.

Artwork for the genres also needs to be added. Check the genres bit of kiosk.ini for the names
of these.

If anyone can provide info or artwork let me know.

Odd Info
--------

Multiple disk games are detected and listed as such.
Halo 3 odst disk 3 has same title id as halo 3 so extra code has been added to label it differently
Forza 3 has been set to not list the disk as disk 2 cannot at the moment be installed to hd.

Todo
----

Auto extract icons from live titles
XBox 1 games
Better icons for all artwork used
Extract nxeart where available and use that artwork
Anything else people come up with

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


Please let me know any feature suggtestions, problems etc. This has only been tested on my hd so i would back up the ini files before running this.

Just indexed around 260 XBL Arcade games okay. Only issue I had was that the Content folder needed to be in the 360dashit folder. Would rather it worked with the content and games folders in the root, but other than that small niggle great job beerchug.gif

Would be nice to have content and games in the root but for the dash to launch the content it has to be in a sub directory of the dashs own folder. Maybe the dash could live in the root of the usb drive, but im sure ive read of problems of having a default.xex file in the root of a usb drive.

it does, the xbox wont boot if a default.xex is on a usb port, you will get E79 or something.

But i am most positive that you can have the 360dashit content on the root and call the launcher dashit.xex.
the only thing is the content package launcher I made would have to be changed, thats easy with FreeXex-QuickBoot V0.2.

In other words, you can do this.


this is pretty impressive, taking a look.

thank you.

i can comfirm that your idea is working!

Small issues with the indexer: gta 4 and gta Episodes from Liberty City, both is named gta 4
brutal legend is named bròtal legend (ofc it has something to do with the "U" with two dots over it)
Modern warfare 2 is named: Modern Warfare® 2 (i gues it is because the registered trademark symbol)

Hello

If you look in the cache/xextool folder, can you post the files for the 2 with the same name and ill add an exception for it.

Ive noticed several off html codes in the names too, so will get these removed too with the new version.

ok Im a big newb but I ran across this program last night,so does this program add things automatically to the menu. For example I have xbla games in the games folder but when I run this app I have not scene them get added on the menu. Am I not using this program properly am I misunderstanding what it does? does dlc go in the games folder..?

For convert.exe you need the visual c++ 2008 runtime.

Regarding missing stuff, the games that are missing covers and descriptions are for some reason no longer on the marketplace website, games like marvel ultimate alliance 2 and tony hawy project 8.

If a game has a missing icon, then its an old game with no nxart file, and i dont have an icon for it.

melkia: The program auto add xbla content and xbox 360 games to the menu. Doesnt add dlc at the moment although i dont see any reason why it couldnt. You need to extract the zip into your 360dashit folder, games need to go into the games folder in the dash folder, and the xbla stuff in the content/0000... folder. The app needs to be run from this location.

Regarding running 360dashit from the root of the usb drive, this has been tested and work ok, but you need to change the launcher package and rename the xex to something other than default.xex or you get a E71

Source code? smile.gif

FYI -> Backgrounds == http://tiles.xbox.co.../background.jpg

### = GAME ID (32bit hex)
en-CA = change to country (i.e en-GB)

also...

http://catalog-cdn.x...a...on&Values=2

change MediaId to the media id ( i.e

[21] => Names=MediaIds
[22] => Values=66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d802584108b7 )

it will give you actually xml /text.. of game description / rating / urls to cover / background / PLUS PLUS screenshots wink.gif

enjoy. if there's anything else you need to scrape.. let me know. i pretty much was making something similar to this tool.. (as a marketplace replacement for homebrew) so holla at me
