  • Games taking up to much space ? Rahszhul develops acl scripts for deleting unnecessary languages or movies from your hdd or prevent it even from being copied. Look at the xbox-scene thread for more information or download the scripts here.

Known issues:
  • 0.7.3: launching a game in the game manager doesn't work.
  • 0.6.5: texture issue with the virtual keyboard makes it unusable.
  • 0.6.4: X3 backlight to dark. I already use the updated XBMC sources but overwrite it with static values :-( .
  • 0.6.0: The retry mode for UDF copy isn't working properly.
  • 0.5.6: The progress bar displays negativ figures and dvd2xbox may freeze on a few boxes.
  • 0.5.5: The title editor sets the game ID of the edited xbe to a default value which makes the save games useless. Don't use it until the next release.
  • 0.5.5: Games with more than 50 long filenames causes dvd2xbox to freeze (Mototrax). Fixed in 0.5.6.
