    I don't remember if I uploaded this, but here's my setup to make these databases. the .bat files for xbla and dlc are there - just click on them to make the database as outlined by my tutorial. they're simple with /x and /d, and they'll move old databases to the .BAK files . I know of no database for xblig. on my system, I have over 3,000 of them, and this was done years ago, so there r probably a lot more now. the system truncates at after 3,000 titles. btw, too bad Sony overcharged with their dev kits at $10,000 dollars apiece while microsoft only charged for a dev license at $99/year with apps that could be downloaded online. that's why you have no indie games on the ps3, and some of the xbox 360 ones r pretty good. I think sony realized they really screwed up with the ps3 and have changed things with the ps4: place the server folder here: C: at the root. I'll still make and upload these, but this is so you can make them yourself.

    I was helping someone on temp with their 360 when I thought about this (can't recall if I already posted this and was too lazy to look :-p):

    https://www.se7ensins.com/forums/threads/xbox-360-error-codes-explained-and-how-to-fix-them.2480/

    it has the various error codes you might encounter. what's so special about this is the debugging/diagnostics menu which is hidden. you can diagnose an issue by which quadrants flash. this is beyond something like rrod, which you may have to have in order to use. basically, it's a 4 digit code. I think the ps3 has something similar with its leds. the meanings are on that website. I've done this before when my first 360 (a xenon = earliest model 360) got rrod and it works.

    new xm360 database (01-01-18). the xbla games' database has increased in size, so maybe more games have been added? I encountered two strange glitches building the dlc pack. the first involved the xm360 server looking at nonexistent pages (I stopped it at over 100 :-p). the second involved the xm360 server not finding everything (the database for dlc was only 1.33MBs instead of 1.77Mbs). to resolve these issues, I simply ran the xm360 server again on my latest database there are over 16,000 dlc in there. lol :):

    thanks I'm not sure if the issues I had were due to me using my new laptop on windows 10. I was using it on windows 7. I'm glad I sorted out the issues. the original, smaller version was when I made the database from scratch. it's a weird glitch. it can take over an hour to make a database. xbla takes a few seconds. what tales so long is the dlc most specifically the rock band dlc. it records both the trial version as well as the full version. lol

    another thread made me think of this. if you know where container files are stored, (content/0000000000000000/title id), here's a partial list of content folders (there used to be a site that named all of them, so this is retained information):

    Code:
    000D0000 = XBLA game
    000B0000 = Title ID
    00000002 = DLC (also includes XBLIG for some reason, and they're all lumped together under one title id.  lol).
    00007000 = GOD (Games on Demand or rather retail games converted to xbl container files.  GOD games are one ways the system was hacked.  since GOD games don't require a disc to be in the drive, it was easy to convert NXE games, named after the dashboard that introduced this, to GOD games with just a few patches.  in fact, GOD games, a batch of them, could be converted in seconds).
    00005000 = Original XBOX container file

    I tried to help someone on gbatemp (not sure if it worked, but there are two live options in dashlaunch. the first is called liveblock. leave that enabled (true) to eliminate accidental sign ins to xbox live which will get you banned within about 5 hours or nearly instantly. you might also disable live access in the default dash forcing a controller code to enable it again (it's for kids and something that should exist for the ps3) anyway, if you have livestrong, disable that by changing it to false. if you don't, you won't be able to download artwork. :)

    here's something I wasn't aware of: originally, I thought that artwork was downloaded from Microsoft's servers with the icon coming from main executable (xex for 360 games; xbe for the original xbox), but apparently they come from xbox unity. there's an option in FSD 2/FS3/Aurora for this. in FSD 2, at least, there are credentials for jqe360 which apparently is the same site as unity.

    I found this out today. you can't map 360 drives on windows 10 unless you enable smb 1.0 which in turn breaks something with qcma and usb connections. you can still use an ftp app like filezilla or with windows explorer (i.e. ftp://user [email protected] address/device location such as hdd1 or usb0), but you can't assign a drive letter (I name all of mine after letters in the Greek alphabet ;)). it will create a folder for them. I'm not sure if the folder disappears after turning off the system though. I don't know if it was smb that broke the vita connection or if it was due to mapping those drives. I can't remember if I ejected them, then tried. it's not a big deal really. I had to make this sacrifice with the new 3ds and windows 10 as well. though, I found out that ftpd sends content in small packets (starts then resumes then starts again). I tried to install an incomplete cia and got an error due to this.

    I've managed to map a network drive, but they have no drive letter. I have them alphabetized with hdd1 and usb0,so it's not much of an issue. :-p you have to map them with ftp:// since the computer won't pick up the 360 by default.

    new dash kernel - 17526 . there's also a new xebuild and dashlaunch as well as unofficial xebuild gui. I updated last night.

    somehow my freestyle dash got corrupted as the database was only showing a handful of games, deleting parsed data worked for everything but xbox 360 (retail) games. I have a backup of the entire FSD folder, so I'm hoping that fixes the problem. it might be from nonuse since I don't even play the system. ;).

    I've updated, and boy was it a nightmare of weird glitches. first, NAND flasher 360 somehow disappeared from my hdd. I'm not sure what happened to it. then, dashlaunch froze after installation (I like to install this separately from the NAND, just in case something gets corrupted), so I had to hard reset the system. after that, the $$ystemUpdate folder wouldn't read unless I entered xex menu. then, not only did FSD get corrupted, but the backup I had on my pc was corrupted too (the game names were messed up and my entire xbla category was missing). I deleted the parsed data, and it still wouldn't find the xbla games (544 games to be exact). I then tried restoring to factory defaults, then FSD kept continuously crashing. I went online to find another version of FSD which seemed to be outdated - my avatar wouldn't move his arms, and he's wielding dual lightsabres, so it looked really messed up. I checked with another FSD I had on my internal hdd (keep the dashlaunch one on an external hdd for easy access), and it didn't have this problem, so I looked online for that version of FSD 2. I've since updated completely, installed the latest version of FSD 2, fixed my xbla game names and corrupted 360, retail games, and deleted unnecessary folders that were found to be empty in my games' folder. it took a while to fix everything. I don't even game on my 360, so maybe the lack of use caused all this corruption?
