jarod71 Wrote:Thanks again Paul! I really appreciate all you are doing to bring this great skin to our ole xbox!. Your prior version runs great with zoom turned off. I will follow your advice concerning the other tips.The backdrops in the old pack were 960x540 which is the same size as all my fanart.
But i have dropped the backdrops in the new pack down to 640x360 to see if it made any difference not resized my fanart more as i do not have any problems running it my self. i did notice i gained around 1mb more memory with the new pack which is not much but it's better than nothing. my xbox is attached to a 32" 16/9 SDTV and it may be worth trying smaller thumbs will have a go when i get the time

Did you have to adjust the fonts any for your TV?

Just an FYI, I picked up almost 5Mb of memory in Showcase mode by reducing the quality of the graphics in /media/showcase and by reducing the size and quality of the graphics in /media/thumbs then recompiling it.
I also removed some .bak files before compiling but not sure that really matters.
So far I can't really see a quality difference on my TV but if you like, check it out and see what you find.
Thanks again for your hard work on this skin mod!

Hi Paul, I just wanted to say a million and one thanks - this latest version is running so smooth on my xbox it's incredible. You're doing a fantastic job - keep up the good work.
edit: Can I make one little request on the OSD during music playback, is it possible to get the album art displayed in the bottom bar?

Sure thing, I was bound and determined to get this running smoothly on my XBox, glad to help out.
You want the whole Textures.xpr file or just the changed graphics?
On another note, I also downsized my fanart to 640 and she's really fast and smooth in Showcase now. I'm using a freeware program called Bulk Image Resizer. I download the fanart from the XBox to a local drive, resize it then upload it back.
Before doing these things I had 8-9Mb free just sitting in the Showcase screen, when I would scroll through movies it would drop to 3-4Mb and then back up to 8-9Mb when I stopped. Now I have 12-14Mb free. It doesn't seem like much but it really improved performance.

just the downsized graphics is fine, not sure if it is the mods but the prior version Paul did, I had like 17mb free for most things, and like 10-11 during videos playing.
Im bound and determined as well lol

There's a few files I didn't change because I couldn't get them any better but I left in the archive cause it was just easier to zip up.
It may be the mods in this version, but doing the things I mentioned really helped. I'm still running a SD TV so it didn't change my view at all.
Let us know if this helped you.
