Thread: New Release and XML Tags

New Release and XML Tags
Since the new release is out I was hoping, since I couldn't find it anywhere, that we could list out all the different tags we can use in the XML and what they do, etc, etc.
In the XML that comes with the RAR it says we can use these tags:
----To turn the snow off - Easy enough...
FTP INHIBIT="0" USER="xbox" PASS="xbox"
----On this is "0" where we put the IP Address for the XBox we are using?
HTTP INHIBIT="0" USER="xbox" PASS="xbox"
----What is this for?
SEARCH SECTION="APPLICATIONS" PATH1="E:APPS" ... PATH4="F:UTILS"
SEARCH SECTION="GAMES" PATH1="E:GAMES" ... PATH4="F:XDEMOS"
----Set up where to look for your stuff...
ITEM TEXT="XShell" ACTION="Launch_Custom" PARAM="C:xshell.xbe"
----Add Custom Items!
So, can we add custom menus with custom items below them like in evox? I like the game list, but what about my Emulators? How do I add this to the Storage Menu alongside Games and Apps?
Again, this is a beautiful release. I am 2 tags away from taking evox off my system!

Currently you cannot add anymore "SEARCH SECTION" tags to it as it will not recognize them. Also there are a few bugs with it right now.
1. With a X2 BIOS, when you select eject CD tray it reboots the xbox.
2. Clicking on "MS DASHBOARD" just reboots the xbox bringing you back into EVOX.
3. Can't create custom menus. (SEARCH SECTION tags)
They are working on it right now and will be releasing a bugfix sometime today.

BTW: a couple more cents from me: can we get it to alphabetize the games/programs? it is really hard to go through them when you have a lot of games. Just for future note, if we get custom menus that we can add items to them I can just alphabetize my collection like I do now...

The new bugfix is out! I'm downloading it.
AS this is there first release I think they have got a GREAT start! Can't wait to see what it'll be like in a few months!

OK, I got the bug fix version and it cleared a lot up. THANKS GUYS!
When you get it (called neXgen_Dashboard_0.91c.rar in case you are getting a little confused when you look for it) open up the xml and hhere is what you get:
<!-- Tags to disable stuff: -->
<!-- Set inhibit to 1 to turn off the corrisponding server -->
<ftp inhibit="0" user="nexgen" pass="nexgen"/>
<!-- Changing existing section paths -->
<search path1="E:Apps" path2="F:Apps" path3="E:Applications" path4="F:Applications"/>
<search path1="E:Games" path2="F:Games"/>
<item text="Oddworld: Munch's Oddessy" icon="F:MunchTitleImage.xbx" xbe="F:MunchDefault.xbe"/>
<!-- Adding new sections & items -->
<search path1="E:Emulators" path2="F:Emulators"/>
<item text="FBAX" icon="F:FBAXTitleImage.xbx" xbe="F:FBAXDefault.xbe"/>
<!-- Adding a main menu entry -->
<item text="XBOX LIVE" action="Launch_Custom" param="c:xodashXOnlineDash.xbe"/>

Question: can you nest menu's like in EvoX?
For example, have a Games menu and have three or four submenu's for different kinds of games, which then autoload from their own sub directories?
26th December 02 #8
I haven't been able to make a nested file system...
I was also wondering what file types and resolution you could use for the images. What I'd like is maybe a defailt xbox logo if it doesn't find a picture rather than the black circle.
Also, I know the source is out there with media X menu having it and all; so, can we have it pull the music from our copied music foilder at random? I believe verison 0.9d of mxm was source code only, I have a copy of it... That would be sweetness - maybe in the final release??
Eject still doesn't work for me (Xecuter2 Bios - ****** chip) it pops out one inch then immediately in then error 13. Reboot gives me the error too and I do have the updated .91c.rar version that was uploaded to xbins on the 25th.
That said, what do I do to make this my primary dash board?
26th December 02 #9
Xecuter2 BIOS looks for evoxdash.xbe first, then nexgen.xbe and finally xboxdash.xbe.
If you rename evoxdash.xbe to something else (f.e. evox.xbe), neXgen will be your primary dashboard.

unable to ftp
after installing nexgen i am unable to get connected to my xbox. every time i reboot i get nexgen dash. i was using the evox to ftp my xbox but now i cant get to evox even with the evox cdrw disk which i had made. it worked before but now it boots to nexgen dash if there is'nt a original xbox disk in the cd drive.
29th December 02 #11
i guess the first thing i'd check would be the username and password - you know they are different for nexgen right?
if you're using the defaults then evox is
and nexgen is
i don't know why your evox disk won't work, perhaps you should burn it again - bear in mind that for a boot disk to work, the dash needs to be called default.xbe, not evoXdash.xbe!!

Sorry for the lame question, but where can I get the bugfix code from??? source is fine if that's all there is?
30th December 02 #13
actually dont worry, I thought you were talking about a fix for the nextgen_dashboard2, but you werent :)
31st December 02 #14
the disk i use was working before and it is named as defult.xbe. the evox i use is the old v8458 (because its simple to use) can some one e-mail me there menu.ini file for the latest version of evox to firstname.lastname@example.org so i can compair and see where i am going wrong.

Thinking about flashing my 360, just some question before/if
I'm thinking about flashing my 360's drive, and would like to know if it is 100% safe, will i get banned from xbl playing a burned game? and also if i do it, will it damage the drive itself?.

Re: Thinking about flashing my 360, just some question befor
Nothing is 100% safe, many people who don't do enough reading and are not well prepared (and even some that do) brick their drive
So far, nooe has been banned from XBL, but that is no indication of the future.
Sounds lke you need to stay with stock firmware
