Where can I find the reasoning for the different Bios's in the AID Download meaning do the add anything or do anything special or different than just the one I have for my version of Xbox and Mod Chip, ie. Xbox v1.6 - X3ce - Bios 3942 v1.6.

Ok, so the folders,
BIOS CD's,
BIOS Extras,
BIOS Files.

What and how can or where can they be applied and or am I limited to due to the Console Version I have to be able to use any of them.

In other word's is there any documentation to describe there purpose?

The BIOS CD folder contains BIOS that are ready to be burnt to a disk so you can flash your chip that way, BIOS extras contains skins and such for the more advanced ones like the X-3 and BIOS files contain the raw BIOS file for flashing using the AID BIOS flash tool.

Since you have the 1.6 xbox you will only be able to run the 1.6 BIOS but since you have the X_3 you can run most of the 1.6 BIOS files.

You are running the best BIOS for the X-3 chip so the rest of the BIOS will pail in comparison and trust me the 3942 is the Rolls Royce of chip BIOS and has 10 times the options of any of your other options.

So what you are telling me the v1.6 X3ce Bios 3942 is like a Compilation of applicable applications? and there really is no reason to any others, and if so are you sure there maybe is not one of these that has a must have?

Yeah man the 3294 is the top shelf stuff with the X-3 config live and FTP built in if you want better you will need to make it first.

This is the only BIOS i run and have never found any reason to change that. Wink

Again, ok.

It's just I was thinking of logo changing my boot screen or something don't I need a specific Bios for this. Don't get me wrong I like and wish to keep the flubber start up and the big X and all but can I change the "Rox My Box" or something, how do I do that?

And second stupid question for the Blaster 360 dose that have a specific Bios?

I dont know any thing about blaster 360 but here is how you change the rox my box section: copy dir x3skins to e:\ drive on your xbox

skins.txt is http zip locations file - you can customize to whatever you like

default is: http://www.allxboxskins.com/x3skins.txt

colors are mapped as follows

aarrggbb

a = alpha
r = red
g = green
b = blue


example x3skins.ini
===================

background = x3skin_template_1.bmp
font = HEMIHEAD.TTF
selectorcolor = 0x88666666
fontcolor = 0xff00ff00
fontsize = 20
menu_rect = 92,111,531,360
menu_bg_color = 0x00000000
scrollbar = 1


################################################################
#
# keyboard color :
#
# keyboard color = <unselected color><selected color><font color>
#
###############################################################

keyboard font = HEMIHEAD.TTF
keyboard color = 0x330000ff 0x66ff0000 0xffff0000


###############################################################
#
# settingname = (alignment),(x),(y),(fontcolor),(output)
#
# alignment can be R for right, C for center and L for left (N = Do Not Show)
#
# output is how string should be outputted
#
###############################################################

buildversion=L,50,20,0xff00ffff;X3 Detected: Build %d
mcpx temperature=C,50,395,0xffffffff;%s

This information can be found in the read me of the 3295 BIOS extra folder of AID.

Well this is for the Bios screen, what about the start up boot screen "Microsoft"?

The link didn't work, did a search and this is what I found http://www.google.com/search?q=allxboxskins&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a, all these site have a problem loading.... Not even switching search engine with Firefox or in IE?

I will consider one of these though Shocked .

Make a bmp at 180 x 50 in i think 8 bit format and name it x3logo.bmp and drop it in the root E and that should be all there is to it. Wink
