Cheers for the quick info, I haven't really looked into the code side of things. All I've done is found the basic info/tutorial to make my dash blue.

But this is cool news that you can have multiple backgrounds. But it also extends my question - can you have multiple other elements? Such as multiple colours schemes etc? So rather than just change backgrounds, you're effectively changing the whole dash scheme in one go....I would guess this is taking things too far, and it's not possible, but new things are always being discovered! smile.gif

I have multiple colour schemes, it's quite easy really.

I have three folders xboxdashdata, xboxdashdatb and xboxdashdatc.

I then point different things to different named .xbe dash files that in turn point to the relevant folder for its xips.

No reason though why you couldn't use the same xboxdashdatb folder for all your colour patches, just make the xbe files different names for each colour you've made.

Then point different dashes and get things like xbmp, evox, etc to reset to a different coloured dash like orangedash.xbe, get what I mean ?

I use different directories for each dash as I play with the xips in each dashboard. This way you can play with your xips and still have a bootable box.

I'm not quite sure this is what I was meaning...

I have my original dash, named as per original naming, I also have bluedash.xbe which is my blue dash, and it points to xdashblue folder for all it's related blue files...

Sure, you could have as many of these as you'd like. But I'm wondering if you can make it so bluedash.xbe can swtich dynamically between different folders etc....like how u can make it swtich backgrounds...I don't want to reset and load a different hacked dash for each scheme....if you know what I mean.

Basically you want to make the dash fully skinnable. I get what you mean and this would be VERY cool

gnutellafan, it is already "skinable." I want to swtich on the fly. You can already switch backgrounds. And you can at least have 1 colour scheme (obviosuly). I'm wondering if u can switch colour schemes on the fly in a similar fashion to how you switch backgrounds?

I don't know know much about how it all works, but I don't see why not, if you have a seperate colour file, and write the code to switch to these different files.

Yes, I know. We are saying the same thing. I lump changing colors ect.. under my def of skinable, not just changing the background image. I also would say for something to be skinable it has to be something you can do on the fly (just pressing a button or 2)
