i'm new to xbox development, and am really interested in helping out in xbmc. i have a couple of little things i would like to do, such as seperating programs from games listed in my programs, and having those items configurable to be hidden.
i was wondering if you guys needed any help with the project. i have vs.net 2003, but don't have the xdk. i can get it though.
just let me know what i should do from here.

so what do i do from here? i've been programming for 5 years now, in a team environment, but i've never worked on a sourceforge project before.
i read i should use wincvs.
how does your check in/out procedure go. is there some sort of standard way of doing it for sourceforge projects? is there documentation somewhere?'

your first step should be to get a cvs client and grab the code from sourceforge. you'll have to use the anonymous server for the moment.
once you have the code have a look through it and familiarise yourself with it somewhat then find something you want to improve/add and get coding.
once you have something good you can submit it as a patch on sourceforge (probably a good idea to prod someone to add it on irc or here).
check in/out is a bit weird on cvs - there's no explicit checkout, only checkin (aka commit). you can't commit via the anon server though - you need access to the main project server for that.

great. thanks guys.
i'll get familiar with the code, then tackle some minor change, like hiding menus.
everything is written in c++ right?
does the xdk support other .net languages also?
- knubile - 2004-03-15 18:26
actually. i'm having a problem getting the xdk. i thought it would be in the usual places, but it's not. can somebody pm me or email me?

ps! please respect that even coders must follow the forum rules and not ask for retail software etc. on these forums, tia.

sorry about that. i guess the xdk can't be obtained from microsoft? do you have to register with them and/or buy it from them?
