You can use WinXIP to resign your .xbe file once you're done adding the skin files.

Just popping in to say a few things:

1) All my skins are now available from my CV site (see sig).

2) My email addy didn't fucking work. I've got a new one now which you won't find in my older skin packs ('cause I haven't updated them yet). The address is: inertia.one@ntlworld.com

3) THIS ONE'S IMPORTANT: I need someone who's running a debug Xbox to do some nice screens of my MSDash skins. They also have to be in widescreen (as most of my skins are 16:9). I'm fed up of looking at my crappy digicam shots, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

That's all - be seeing you.

Well, I have a debug box and the screen shot capability, but I dont have a widescreen tv for the 16:9 skins. Let me know if I can be of any use to u.

::EDIT:: I only have the matriculation pack put together, but I could easily put the others together as well if you wanted 4:3 pics.

Would you not be able to run your Xbox in 16:9 mode and take screenshots anyway? Seeing as the screenshots are taken by the machine and not the TV I can't imagine it being a problem...

Cheers for your help, btw.

Hey Inertia,

I'll be able to take pics of a few tonight, but I have a few questions.
1) Do you want both 16:9 and 4:3 screens for each skin?
2) Do you just want a pic of the main screen for the dash?
3) Do you want me to post them here, or just send them through email, or give you a link?

If anybody else needs a screen for anything else, dont be afraid to ask! wink.gif

1) Just 16:9, thanks.

2) The main screen only 'll do.

3) Erm ... you can post them here if you like. Don't suppose it'll do any harm.

::EDIT:: As you can see, I got the white to show around the orb!

Here's the finished skin I was showing off earlier. From now on I'll be putting all of my skins on a page of my own as well as on here (this thread's getting a little too busy, tbh). I'll probably start doing Evox versions n' shit like that.

As per usual, request a 4:3 version if you particularly want one.
