this is a windows batch file package that will download the latest xbmc cvs source code and compile it. you can include items customized for your personal build such as extra skins, scripts (it comes with alot of useful scripts already, that are kept up to date), customized .xml files,codecs and more... when it’s done doing it’s thing, it tidies up the directory it was run in, you are then left with a nice, dated, rar file of the build. it can even ftp the finished build to your xbox when it is done compiling the new build. it is suggested you do this once a week if you like or when major updates to the xbmc cvs source code are done.

i've wandered down this road aswell, but i went one step further.
i modify strings.xml and insert builddate and i also have a script that uploads (ftp) to xbox

ok newest package is done uploading. it's the last one for awhile(unless chnages to cvs occur), since everything is in there that needs to be right now.
on a side note, it appears the cvs is being updated or someone screwed with the solution a little too much, because the source will not compile properly, even when done seperately and not with this package. i ran the package this morning and all went well. it appears since about 12pm or so (central u.s.) it has not been compiling correctly. hopefully, it will be fixed within a day or two.

ok, last update for now, exceptions will be changes to cvs and the like. added build date to strings.xml file because of pike. also tidied up the code. tested a little while ago and everything works 100%. i have one or two other things i may look into, but for now, hope you enjoy. if you have any feature suggestions, or anything you would like to see added to the script let me know

i just to do it the old-fashion way before, but now with this script, well, everything is automated and way easier than before.

- YuYu - 2004-11-20 03:09
ok new package is being upped! check the readme version history for changes.
project will be 1.0 final next release, from there, i truly will only do small updates to ensure compatibilty with cvs.
i will update the first post with changes as soon as i can...

just upped another quick fix, last one for awhile seriously, because i screwed up... forgot to exclude the cvs directories from the lnguage folder... me=stupid
off to drink my stupidity away... too much time spent on this thing this week, going to hang out with the "real world" now...
