The new emphatic.se site

Hey folks, By random I found that my web server can handle WordPress, so I thought to myself -"It's 2011 after all, by now people will think I'm crazy to still use regular html for my site". So at the moment I'm in the progress of migrating all of the old content to this new platform. For now the old site will remain, but I won't do any updates on it no more, so please update your bookmarks. : I really hope that those of you who enjoy this site will keep coming back and maybe even post some comments when you see an article you enjoy. Cheers Jorgen...

XBox 360 Cabinet Themes

XBox 360 Cabinet Themes

"Cabifying" your 360 dashboard What's that you say? I noticed that you could browse pictures in the dashboard of the XBox 360 and decided to see if this could be utilized to create a "theme" of sorts. I then made an EGRETĀ II theme that worked really well in my cabinet. As I shared this on some arcade forums I frequent, the ball got rolling and now I've made a few more of these. Some have multiple versions with colour variations. How do I install them then? You download these images to a USB device that's compatible with your XBox 360, or if you have a Home network, you put them in a folder that you can browse to from your 360's Picture Library. When you have the image selected, press the Y button to use it as a background. Once you've done this once, a new theme will be created that you can select from your User account.

I have made some nice changes to my Red Box PCB so it now has AdvanceMenu as frontend. This of course looks much better than the very basic menu that came with it. Also supports animated previews of all games and has a nice trance track as background music. I've created a kick ass animation at startup as well. :D I've also upgraded the sad Centrino 1100mHz CPU to a bitchin' PIII 1400hHz that I got from eBay. Perhaps later I'll also upgrade the memory from 256 to 1GB. Not sure how much memory DOS can handle though....
