well since the ppl using thc have put the bsx dna into the thc dash it got me thinking to copy the media player that thc uses as a BGM manager cuz bsx is really undeveloped still.
any1 kno where to begin?

All new code going into BSX will be written by us. It is important to note that it is still a beta version of the dash and the last few releases have been intended to build a foundation on which many more features can be added. The nature of MSdash hacking is inately limited by the properties of the xbe...so when someone says "underdeveloped" I feel they may be misinformed or are comparing it to entirely homebrew dashes (ava, unleashx, etc.). MSdash hacking will never be able to boast the kinds of features found in these dashes and remains primarily asthestic in nature. Having said this, a music player will indeed be added to the dash but like the thc one it will do little more than the functions found in the ms music player. I dont know anyone who actually uses playlists so I feel they wont be missed.
The way the meshes and code for BSX have been designed allows for easy replacement or meshes resulting in radical appearance changes...chances are if you dont like wait a while and you'll see massive improvments
Shit we are planning:
-Game icons for the games menu
-choice of new MS style square submenus rather than the circle one
-multiple background mesh choices other than DNA
-multiple orb meshes
-multiple cellwall mesh choices
-adding trainer support
-fully customizable orbs (launching apps directly, changing contents of orbs, etc)

Trainer support will be nice to see

You will find the code for the trainers is already about, you can already add it to BSX if you like.
I can't tell you where here though it would seem.
you will find it if you look.
