Nice work @pinky !! Keep up the great help.
thanks, my friend. I know about the same about the 360 as the ps3. the only thing I'm lagging on with the ps3 is plugins since I've never tried using one. I know all about plugins on the 360 though...so maybe that's one place I know more about. I do my databases once-a-month since a lot is no longer being added to xbla. the two things they lack is xbla is xbox live arcade games only (no god games which I don't think people will care about since u can make any game into a god game by ripping it to the hdd, then using nxe2god) and indie games (read as one dlc file, so it's impossible to make a database of them).
something a little different from henkaku and vitamin. we know about all systems here.
since I'll be packing for my vacation, here's a new database (08-30-2016) a few days early:
new database: 09-30-2016:
for those unaware, the 360 databases r meant for xm360 which means u can determine what u have and don't have if u collect games/content. with the 360, it uses container files with each having a unique id much like the content id of pkg files of the ps3.
games take a few seconds, but dlc can take hours due to rock band. it's very easy to do though.
btw, I delete my older databases when I upload a new one. I just deleted last month's.
my 360 fixer friend said that fakeanim corrupted 360's nands including his own. It still hasn't messed with mine after two years. I think ur safe.
new db 10-31-16:
I'm playing my 360 right now when I had a thought (since this is the way I always do it), but in FSD2, u can select the default.xbe (xbox original) or default.xex (xbox 360) file in file manager to start the game up without waiting for the database to load fully. this will start the game. this is the reason I've stayed on FSD2. FS3 and Aurora wait until the database is fully loaded to boot up fully which I don't like. it can take a while if u have many, many games. though, I am using an Aurora fakeanim boot animation.
edit: I forgot to mention that the hacked dashboards on the 360 use a metadata indexer like the ps3. the normal system dash does not which can take quite some time to load every game. though, the metadata indexer on the 360 records artwork as well; the ps3 one doesn't which is y the ps3 is faster at loading the information.
added tutorial on obtaining and using the xuid.
btw, I wasn't sure if u'd consider the xuid tutorial against the rules. Yaris Swap is how u can pirate xbla/xblig/dlc. ur essentially replacing the header with a free one kinda like game fixes on the ps3. Yaris is the name of the only game that was free on xbox live. god games, or games on demand, r full games on the 360's xbox live catalog which u can buy and download, but there was a way around that as well since u can rip games, then use nxe to god to remove the fact that the disc has to be in the console to play it. that only takes a couple of seconds to do since the app will read all nxe containers from ur content folder.
anyway, Yaris Swap can be used for piracy, so it's a slippery slope. there's no way to access xbox live with a rgh/jtag/rjtag without risk of banning which should happen instantly. though, I think u should still get a dns error. that's the way that it's been for a while unless something has changed. anyway, I'm just putting that disclaimer here in case staff doesn't know about the 360. though, just like with the ps3, u have to buy the game/dlc to get the content. there was a way to access the dev shop and grab games for free via installing a hacked dev dash kernel. the box of the xbox game would appear orange instead of green to let u know u were using/playing an incomplete game or one that hadn't gone through testing yet. I think microsoft put a stop to that by white listing dev units. I've never been on the dev shop, so I don't know for sure. anyway, just letting u know. if it's against the rules, u can delete the xuid tutorial. it's kinda like reactpsn, which can be used for piracy, but it can also reenable ur xbla/xblig/dlc/avatar stuff if u've been banned.
new database - 11-25-16:
Added tutorial on adding updates to xebuild.gui considering an official build for 17511 was never released.
new database 1-29-17. this is what I made for temp a few days ago. I just hadn't posted it here yet. :
new database 02-27-17. fewer and fewer things r being released, as u all know, so the database changes r getting smaller each month:
someone on temp (@Dinoh Scene - not a member here and their 360 expert) told me that xebuild gui has been updated to 17511 now. he was waiting for jrunner to be updated as well, but both jrunner and xebuild gui r based off of xebuild. I don't use jrunner, so I don't know anything about that. u can probably add an update to it as well in much the same way.
on other news, I just realized that my 360 database needs to be fixed up. I rebuilt it a few years ago, but I never got around to fixing the names of games. for example, I have a game named "disc 2." the name is taken from the default.xex (the main executable) or the default.xbe (xbox original's executable). instead of going down the list and renaming each game on the dashboard, it's better to use the freestyle dash http connection. u must enable this in freestyle dash along with a username and password. I think the default username and password is xbox . then, u just type the ip of the system into ur computer. there, u can check temps, add artwork, change names to games, etc. u have control over the database then, so it's quicker. oh, and u can even hide games. I need to rerip lost odyssey, and as u know, the system changes discs automatically even if u try to fool it. it's easier to hide all discs for a game but one in that event.
new xm360 database (03-31-17):
new xm360 db (5-07-17):
I can't remember if I mentioned it, but my main external 360 hdd died. really, it was dying, but when my laptop restarted for updates while I was running scans on the drive killed it for good. I'm now backing up every hdd drive I have. I've backed up every memory stick, memory card, SD card, my wii's hdd (especially since I play it a lot), and now my 360's other external hdd, and now my 360's internal hdd using an ethernet cable, but backing up 1TB still takes a while. I need to check my ps3's hdds. one's dead, I know that, but the internal hdd and hopefully the other external hdd isn't.
