  1. I have had success with using Auto Installer Deluxe (AID) 4.50. It is an automatic installation disc that you can use to install just about every major application out there. There is also a huge section on backing up. AID will assist in both chip and soft mods. Do you like emulators? Well, AID is chock full of them. There are also some nice tools too such as DVD2Xbox which will copy your DVD movies to the hard drive. From there you can use a media dashboard such as XBMC (also on the AID disc) to make a playlist of movies. AID also has FTP capabilities and since it is a self booting
  2. Hello Oldone....just dropping a message to let you know that I got your email and I set up CoinOPs with the screen skin changes above. It looks GREAT! I just need to change the typeface to match, so when you get a shot could you let me know what to set them for? Oh! I would like to turn off the feature that puts up those two small dots next to the name whenever you log into a game, is that possible? I can just see it now when my cabinet gets full use that the screen will be riddled with all these little dots. I prefer them OFF. Thanx, Geo
  3. Hacking an original controller (The large "Duke" controller that was originally released for the Xbox) is best, but the S-Controller will do fine. A couple words of advice though when it comes to analog game support within the Xbox. There are two main problems in this area, the first one is that CoinOPS/MameOX doesn't have great analog translations. I have tried some analog (driving) games that use the stick and triggers for throttles, and with some games the control is all over the place. There is a menu to adjust for the analog sensitivity and speed, but if the game has a problem with
  4. Ahhh, I guess it was something simple like that. As for the loading time problem, I should mention that I am using the stock hard drive which is probably not 7200 rpm speed. However, I am not sure if the HD speed has any relevance as when I click on a game I get about a 'standard' 6 or 7 second wait before it goes to black screen. Then it stays quiet for about 15 seconds or so. The last 5 to 10 seconds of the black screen I can hear the hard drive start to chuckle away and then the "Please Wait" screen finally comes up. The wait here varies too, but it isn't as long as the black out
  5. It is as I outlined above, the blank screen for me is the longest...usually clocking in at around 20 to 25 seconds. I guess by what you are saying that isn't normal? Another question, I am trying to change the music for the background music. I am using standard mp3 files, but they don't show up in the play selection list for background music nor do they play in random mode. I saw that the original music files in place are .WMA files, so do I have to use files in that format? Thanx, Geoi
  6. It doesn't have to be fancy...a simple set of white words on the black background that says "Loading". But as of now I don't have any game pictures up, but if that does stay up when the 'blackout' occurs that is a big help. Since I am still setting up CoinOPs, I don't have any screenshots loaded up as of yet. Thanx, Geo
  7. Ahhhh, it is a combination then...just like with the back button and start. Ok, I will try that out. Yep, that did the trick. How do you 'blank out' a setting (erase a spot)? Oh...I have found quite a few games that could use some help in the controls department. For example when I import a game on it's down (outside of the Mame 0.84 set made up for the Xbox), I DO have to make some adjustments with the controls. Furthermore, there is the issue with analog controls. When I build a cabinet I am pretty much going to use only the digital controls. So for many games I have to set t
  8. Hello All, I have a couple questions in regards to how to make certain settings within CoinOps Reignite R5: 1) When a game that is already loaded up on screen, how do you pull up the menu that allows you change the settings such as the button configuration, number of coins a game takes, etc? I think with regular PC mame you would push the TAB key for that. I don't know how to get to that in CoinOPS. 2) I have noticed that when you click on a game the game doesn't highlight and sometimes it takes a while for the "please wait-loading" screen to come up. The time lag is enough for one
  9. PM Received and answered . I still have many of these old boards laying around from when I was playing around with arcade games in the past. Sadly, most do not work anymore. At first I wasn't sure about the speed up issue, but with games like Pac Man and Galaga the speed is kind of 'burned in' to my mind. So I will know if something is off. With Pac Man it is obvious both the video and audio are off. The thing is that it is either the Xbox or the MameOX in CoinOPs because I played the SAME rom on my PC and the speed is correct. I had noticed that too...even on my PC that happen
  10. I was looking under Amazon and some of the larger computer supply houses and they didn't have them. But it was around that time that someone said NOT to get a regular adapter but a converter. The converter cost me only $25, so it wasn't a big deal to go that route. How do you flash a video Bios? I only know how to do the 'regular' bios as I had to do that to mod the Xbox in the first place. Oh! OK...I just pulled up "Paint" within Windows and by clicking "Advanced" for the color selection I get a color table and it DOES show the numbers. Great! Now the next issue is what or
  11. Actually the only reason I ended up with a converter is because they stopped making VGA to Xbox adapters. I was told the converter was 'better' as well. Since that was what was available, I went with that. No, I wasn't aware of a bios patch for video. It might come in handy for a permanent cabinet install this way I could use as direct of a connection as possible. What? I could have sworn I put my email address in there. That is weird. Question: My guess is that there has to be some kind of tool out there that lets you select the color you want and then it would spit out t
  12. Close, I am going to use a Dell 15" (or 17") SVGA display. My goal is to make a bar top cabinet that is meant to be moved around. I don't have the space right now to build a large cabinet. So I need something I could sit on a counter/bar top or put on a shelf on the wall. Thus it has to be lightweight and small. So no CRT for this project. That would have to wait until I have room for a full size cabinet. The reason I mentioned hi-def is because I have to use a converter box for my Xbox to use a SVGA monitor and if you use any mode other than 720i, it just looks horrible. (I am using
  13. YES!! YES!! That is it...perfect! How did you do that? BTW, I am using Hi-Def 720i. Geo
  14. Ok, I tried changing the colors last night as I have found the skin.ini file in CoinOPs and I saw the set of four color numbers you were talking about above. However, without knowing what the value represents in terms of color, I am 'hunting blind'. But just for the record I did change some values but I didn't see any affect. Naturally I made note of the original values and put them back. Since it seems like a difficult proposition to fully change the skin, I would like to know if I could at least replace this skin with the one used on the earlier versions of CoinOPS. I prefer the orange
  15. Hello all, I am new to this site as well as CoinOPS. I have CoinOPS Reignite R5 currently running on my Xbox and I initially made a post here in regards to changing skins (which I found out is not such an easy task to do). For the most part I am fine with the CoinOPS skin, BUT the question did come into my mind, what if I wanted to do a vertical only cabinet? So some quick searches lead me to this thread. My question is this: Is the Vertical version of CoinOPS Showcase available for download? I am prepping a second Xbox mod as we speak and I want to temporarily try out a vertical
