g00fy1 Wrote:Excellent. Take your time Paul and thank you!don't get too excited There's only a couple of fixes/ additions which are barely noticeable. the good news for me is cf2009 has added the best of hitchers and randalthor's and your mods / fixes into his genre poster pack which will free my hands to look at other areas like cleaning up the dam includes_mediaflags.xml as it had got a real mess with people just adding updates to it in haphazard way ie multiple entry's of the most common studios, this must slow xbmc down some having to read through all that code and so i have fixed that issue for this release and i will go for the full release as i feel it is pretty stable without the small showcase mod it has done my head in trying to get that bugger working right. So I will come back to it later. So this will be the last full revision untill there is some substantial changes to auriga on github. but fear not yee xbox fans and users i intend on working to introducing more bug fixes mods etc as and when they appear.
These will come out as pure updates very painless and easy to apply.
So i will still be around to hear any ideas or suggestions etc from you guy's. untill i get told to get lost (don't even think about it) thanks

Just downloaded the rev5 to see the performance - aeon auriga puts my cpu avarage at 96% and your lite is at 65% - so that is nice. But the pngs looks all wrong. I get alot of black lines on the screen...

anyone using t3ch latest builds??
1) 9.04 Final; Babylon
2) Rev19856 - 2009.05.01
Not sure which one to use...probably the latest (rev19856).
Also, cant wait for the update Paul...take your time, there is no rush at all.
Is there an easy mod i can do myself so that i can increase font size, or is a bit of a mission?
My eyesight is fine, and i can read it ok. Its more for my girlfriend, she use the system daily to play music. So if i could increase font a little bit, then that would be soooo cool.

I get alot of black lines on the screen...Is the problem mainly with the textures with transparency as that is caused by over compression. but i tested this one on my xbox and pc with no visible artifacts. correct me if i am wrong but my guess is you made your own textures.xpr using the supplied textures
and most likely used xbmctex to compress them to a .xpr i use this myself for test purposes but it tends to over compress and does cause me problems but for the ones i upload i use xprexpress as i can alter the compression settings thus avoiding these problems if you want a copy of xprexpress i can upload it(it's for windows)
shokka9 Wrote:hey guys....High shokka how you doing. I do use the latest build of t3ch's xbmc with no stabilty problems at all but i have not tried any of the nightly builds for a few weeks now but they are normally ok. as for the fonts you can open up the fonts.xml in your 720p folder using notepad or wordpad and edit the font sizes in there i usually add about +4 to all sizes under size 30 anything over that size really does not need to be any bigger.
If your not sure how to go about it i can alter one or two for inclusion in the skin tomorow and you can try each one out. i meant to do it last time but forgot. glad you reminded me.
diemos Wrote:Bring it on Paul, can't wait!It will be saturday sometime unless i have another set back as i managed to waste 4 hours today rewriting all the mods into the stock .xmls only to find all the backdrops did not show and the list view not working. and so am now trying to make up some lost time
just came on here for a quick breather and a smoke. so fingers crossed

I was wondering about xbmxtex....If I use your unaltered .xpr from Rev. 5 I get 19mb in movies. If I make the smallest tweak an compress using XBMXTEX I'm down at like 9-12mb. I'll try that other one and see how it goes.
Do you this one from this link....http://dl.qj.net/XPR-Express-v1.0.1-Xbox-360/pg/12/fid/13059/catid/505

Use 9.04 Final: Babylon from T3ch. It's the stable build, and is newer than 19856 (this is RC1, not final).
I'd stick with that for now, as any svn builds later than that will be including some skinning engine changes, and not sure yet how that will affect the xbox and aeon.
But as soon as it is feasible, I will test the newer builds and see how it goes. Save you having to do it.

then use the lowest quality on it and you will get a good memory boost the down side is it looks crap but by all means have a play with different settings and your using as in the link. but my advice would be to use the normal setting then if you have problems with graphical glitches then use a higher quality setting(less compression)
Cranial Wrote:Use 9.04 Final: Babylon from T3ch. It's the stable build, and is newer than 19856 (this is RC1, not final).I'm inclined to agree with you on that one which is why i wanted to get to a fairly stable point with this skin as when i uprade xbmc i will know for sure if it's any better or not.
News Revision6 is going up right now and it has been a uphill struggle to get everything in i wanted in the end due to problems lack of sleep and the like i have left out the small posters mod in showcase.
And for this release and maybe for all others i have not included a textures.xpr .
In the package is 720p folder media folder with all the textures and Xprexpress(for windows) this way you can add your own backdrops to the pack as the ones i use maynot be suitable as they are sized at 640x360 and that works well for me. but it may not for all of you. Anyone who can't create textures.xpr then let me know either by pm e-mail or on here and i will sort one out for you and for shokka i will try to find time today to do you those font.xml files (sleep permiting lol) the link is at beggining of thread thankyou

...actually just did a fresh install - downloaded rev 5 and the fonts.
It starts up in settings and there are black vertical lines on the left side of the png overlay. And when you "surf" around it is the same all over the skin. I tested this on vista (running 1024x768) and win7 (running 1440x900). But just to be clear - I left it untouched.

Ah I see. This is for xbox xbmc only. I don't think other ports of xbmc like textures.xpr very much.
