Freakazoid's preNXE

Another skin you should check out preNXE

With the new build_skin.exe you can also upload the skinfile directly to your xbox.
Scripted in hta like the one before. LINK



Expect new XUITT/FSA release next week, was a little busy with these hta scripts.

Remix Surreal Video Selector

Check out darkmurf's ReMix Surreal skin for FSD2 LINK

I liked the idea of having background/tab videos.

To simplify the process of changing videos, here a little hta app: LINK
Preview video, upload through FTP, pack into a xzp file. All parameters are saved in config file.

Here a screenshot:

About XMA

The XMA-tab in FSA works with xmaencode.exe found in XuiTool.
It seems that some wav-files are not converted and if they are they dont work properly under FSD 2.


Here is a workaround:


You need xma2encode.exe (found in the latest SDK I guess). Convert your xma back to wav:
I used Cool Edit Pro 2 but any SoundEditor should work.


WAV format:
ACM Wavefile
Filter: PCM
Attributes: 44khz, 16bit, stereo.

Use then xma2encode pcmfile /T xmafile

I'll add a checkbox in FSA ([] use xma2encode.exe ). It is recommended to use the new encoding executable.
