First off, x-s does not have a forum for skinning the original msdash, so i thought I would put the thread here. I just downloaded the True Blue msdash skin and am having difficulty installing it. The readme says:
-Patch your xbe with the color mod preset using HeXbe
-After patching insert the xbx's in the appropriate xip
-xbox4.xbx -> mainmenu5.xip
-outline.xbx -> settings3.xip and music2.xip
-GameHilite_01.xbx -> default.xip
I am not exactly sure what to do, but here is what I did:
First I opened up my msdash.xbe file and patched it with the Gcues_True_Blue.xbp file using HeXbe. Then I patched this .xbe file with a font exploit...should I do this (I am using UDE/UXE - i forgot which)? Then I opened up mainmenu.xip with WinXIP and replaced the original xbox4.xbx with the skinned one. I did the same with the others. Then I uploaded my default.xbe and the other files to replace the originals. In addition to the .xip files in the C:/xboxdashdata.185a6100/ folder, I found xbox4.xbx and GameHilite01.xbx in the C:/xodash/media/xbx/ folder. Should I replace these files? For some reason, I tried all sort of combinations (replacing files in xbx folder + patched xbe, replace + no patched, no replace + patched, and no replace + no patched), all to no avail. Were any of you able to get the msdash skin to work? Thanks for your time and any assistance you may give!
