Since XBMC is in a FEATUREFREEZE at the moment, I've decided to make more than one BUILD per week (I'll do this if I think there's enough changes to CVS).
If you want to report bugs, please do it the PROPER way, see http://www.xbmc.xbox-scene.com/wiki/index.php?title=HOW-TO_Submit_a_Proper_Bug_Report .
Please note: Support for skins with versions below 2.0 has been removed
* T3CH * XBMC * T3CH * XBMC * T3CH * XBMC * T3CH * XBMC * T3CH * XBMC * T3CH
MESSAGE FROM T3CH___________________________________________________________

NOTEWORTHY CHANGES SINCE LAST T3CH (according to T3CH)______________________

Overwrite UserData folder with your backed up copy.
DASHBOARD INSTALL (SOFTMODS)_____________________________________________
ARE NOT COVERED IN THIS README, SEE http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=406656
Option 1. Team XBMC's shortcut tool.
It's included in the _tools folder as <<SHORTCUT by TEAM XBMC.xbe>> + <<SHORTCUT by TEAM XBMC.cfg>>.
Instructions here: http://www.xbmc.xbox-scene.com/wiki/index.php?title=As_a_Dashboard (Option 1).
Rename the <<SHORTCUT by TEAM XBMC.xbe>>+.cfg & also EDIT the .cfg so it matches your config.
See APPLICATION INSTALL above.
Option 2. Thanks to an app called 'Team UIX's Xbe Shortcut Maker v1.0' by JbOnE, it's now easy...
Transfer contents of XBMC folder (this is VERY important since the tool is hardcoded)
TO "E:\APPS\XBMC\". Rename <<SHORTCUT by TEAM UIX.xbe>> to something your bios can boot
(see http://www.xbmc.xbox-scene.com/wiki/index.php?title=As_a_Dashboard or read your
BIOS README) and transfer to location your mod solution boots. No need to fiddle with HOME tag anymore,
and future upgrades you need not to worry about this file (unless you move XBMC).
If you're updating from a VERY old/bad build you may get issues. Follow these simple rules:
o Replace (FTP OVERWRITE) all files in your XBMC folder with fresh ones from your new build
o Delete old settings (from UserData/guisettings.xml)
o In some rare cases some of the database files in UserData/Database/*.db may need manual deletion
(usually if they are very old). Note: This loses all per file settings you made with the old build!
TWEAKS BY T3CH______________________________________________________________
I've cleaned up the scripts menu, >>XBMC\skin\Project Mayhem III\pal\dialogsubmenu.xml<<
(used for all resolutions) to only show the included QuickTimeBrowser & "XBMCScripts" scripts.
If you add scripts yourself, this is the file to edit or replace.
