    I like Aurora but the only thing missing is ui sounds. I tried to make skin with ui sounds myself but I just can't wrap my head around it for now. Could anyone make this come true? I think many people would love it

    Noticed there wasn't a tutorial on adding music to the skins made for Aurora or the knowledge of it is scattered around random threads from some time ago. For those looking to add custom BGM tracks to their skins, I'll explain the process. You'll need: * A good ear & eye * A PC running Windows 7 or better ( Using a Mac or Linux? Then grab a Virtual Machine program such as VMFusion or VirtualBox & install Win7 or higher. ) * An Audio Editor ( We'll use Audacity as it has binaries made for Windows, Mac, & Linux. ) * Xuitool ( Part of the Microsoft Xbox 360 SDK which has the Xbox 360 Neighborhood, this is also why you need Windows to run this. ) * XZP skin file for Aurora, extracted somewhere ( For this tutorial, I'll use this awesome NXE skin made by jveda which didn't originally have BGM & put all the extracted stuff on my desktop. You can still follow along with your own skin & path. ) * Your custom music track that you want played on Aurora ( I will use the Xbox 360's Avatar Editor BGM. ) - Step 1 - Download Audacity from its website & install it. We'll come back to using it later. - Step 2 - Get the desired track you want as Aurora's custom BGM, audio format doesn't matter as long as Audacity supports it. - Step 3 - Start Audacity, then import your track. Drag the file to the audio editor's window or click File > Import > Audio & select your track. You should have it successfully imported. - Step 4 - This is where your good ear & eye is needed as you'll be editing & testing your music track many times until you feel it not only loops seamlessly, but that it also feels right. Make sure the project rate is set to 44100Hz. Once you are happy with how it sounds, move on to the next step. - Step 5 - Export your track from Audacity by clicking on File > Export > Export as WAV. Name the track whatever you want & save it wherever you want. [To make this tutorial easy on us, we're going to name it "song.wav" (Without quotes.) & on the desktop. IMPORTANT: You must export the track in 16-bit signed WAV format! Not 32-bit signed, not 24-bit signed, not 8-bit unsigned! Once your file is exported, you're all done with Audacity. Proceed to the next step. - Step 6 - We're now going to extract our XZP skin via the XZP Tool. The XZP files should be automatically associated with the tool once it's been installed, so you can just double-click on your XZP file to bring the program up with the contents inside shown. Otherwise you click on Open & point it to your skin file. You will then see a list of files & how they're structured. Click the first file on top (Usually Aurora_FileManager.xur), then while you hold your SHIFT key, go the bottom last file & click on it. If done correctly, you will have all the content files highlighted. Create a folder to put all the files in, then drag them out from XZP Tool to there. Any folder name will work as long as the file structures are unchanged. For my example. I will name my folder NXE_with_BGM as that will soon be the skin's name. - Step 7 - Now let's look inside our folder, it may or may not already have a sound folder. (Mine has one, only for SFX though.) If it does not, then create a new folder. Name it whatever you want, but I suggest "Sounds" (without quotes) to make it easier on you. Once it is made, drag your WAV file exported from Audacity & slide it in that folder. - Step 8 - Open the Xbox UI Authoring Tool. Close out the XUI1 template as we are not making a skin for Aurora in this tutorial. Make sure you have the Aurora Elements extension installed to enable the modifications of the skin files. Download the script from the Aurora website & put it anywhere you want. I made an Aurora folder in Xbox 360 SDK folder & extracted everything there, so the path looks like C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Xbox 360 SDK\Aurora. Once the tool is up, check if the extension is installed by going to Tools > Options > General > XML Extensions. If it's not there, add it & then restart the program for it to take effect. Our focus is going to be on the Aurora_Main.XUR file inside the extracted skin folder. Let's first rename it to "Aurora_Main_OLD.XUR" (Without quotes) as it will act as a backup file. We will delete it later once we're done. Double click the Aurora_Main_OLD.XUR file & you should see a window open inside the program. You can't modify anything in the XUR format, so you must save it as a XUI file. Do that by clicking File > Save As... & name it Aurora_Main_XUI.XUI. Keep that saved in the skin's folder for now. - Step 9 - You now have the Aurora_Main_XUI.XUI file you recently saved. It will look the same as the XUR file earlier, but this time you'll be able to modify it. The top left area where it says [XuiCanvas] is our focus. Click on Aurora, then go to the Application Layer. This is the place where our music will be added. Now look to the left side where there are various tool icons & hover your mouse towards the Windows 95-looking speaker, that is "XAudio Sound" which is what we want. Click on the speaker icon & your cursor will turn into a crosshair when hovering over the skin preview area below the keyframes. Go ahead & click anywhere you want in the gray rectangle or skin preview, placement does not matter as it will be invisible once the skin gets rebuilt. You'll notice a new group was created called XuiSoundXAudio at the layer area. In Properties, you should also see ' XuiSoundXAudio : XuiSound : XuiElement '. - Step 10 - Now we'll get to finally adding our track! So click on the recently created XuiSoundXAudio group & go to Properties. You can change the ID name to whatever you want, but if you want to make it easy on yourself, I suggest naming it "BGM" or "Music" (Without quotes.) Scroll all the way down while in Properties until you see File & Volume. By default XuiTools leaves the File area blank & doesn't know where your custom track is. At File, click the three dots near the empty white box to bring up the file browser. Find the folder you saved the WAV file of your track to (In this example, it's in "Sounds") & select it. It has now been added to XuiTools, you should see a path made of your selected WAV file near File. Something like "\Sounds\song.wav". Also by default, XuiTools sets the music volume at -12.000000. You can change it to whatever you want, but anything lower than the default may result in the music being too quiet. If you already made the track quieter on Audacity, you can just set it to 0.000000 or still change it. Since I already edited the track, I'll have the volume at 0.000000 Make sure that 'Play' is enabled in the State area & check the "Loop" box so that it will keep playing your track endlessly from start to finish. Otherwise it will only play once & never again until you return to Aurora. Now let's check if the BGM plays in XuiTools by previewing it via File > Preview (F5). If everything was set up correctly, then you should have your track playing on loop which means it'll play on your Xbox 360! Once you got confirmation, close out the preview. If stuck on full view, change the windows to Cascade style & click the red X mark on the corner where it says XUI. Well done! You now have a working BGM track that loops! But we're not done yet, we are close to the end though. - Step 11 - Now we're ready to save the changes & will convert our XUI file to XUR with the new information added. Go to File > Export As Binary, then save the file as "Aurora_Main.XUR" (Without quotes) to your skin folder. You're all done with XuiTool, so go ahead & close it. Go to the folder now & make sure it is not moved out of there or put it in one of its subfolders, your skin will not load on the Xbox 360 console if that happens. Then delete the Aurora_Main_XUI.XUI & Aurora_Main_OLD.XUR files from the skin's folder as they are not needed anymore. If the skin doesn't work, we can just simply convert that newly made XUR file to XUI & convert the XUI file to XUR again after modifying it. - Step 12 - Once you have the new Aurora_Main.XUR file nested in with the rest of the XUR files & you have your specific music track saved in that folder that you pointed XuiTools towards, we will rebuild everything in that extracted folder back to an XZP file. If you want to change the skin's display name & values on Aurora, you can either use the Skin Meta Generator program or open the skin.meta file with a text editing program like Notepad++. Overwrite the old skin.meta file if you updated it so that you don't mistake it as a clone of the older skin. Open XZP Tools again & click on the Rebuild button. Then have it point at your skin folder. I do not think the version matters, so pick whatever one (In my example, I selected "Version 1".) Then click OK to rebuild the XZP skin for Aurora, it will be done once the status say 'Ready' & the newly built XZP file appears. Double check that everything's OK inside by opening the newly built XZP file in the XZP Tool. There should be your new music track in the package file (In my example it would be named "Sounds\song.wav" with Sounds being the folder it's in & song.wav being the custom BGM track itself.) - Step 13 - Okay! Now it's time to turn on our Xbox 360 console & try our new skin out with the BGM track. You can either transfer the new XZP file to the 360's HDD via USB, FTP, Ethernet, or FATXplorer. Regardless of your method of transfer, send it to Aurora's Skins folder, where the default skin is saved. Once you're in Aurora, press the B button on your controller to bring up a menu. Go over to the Skins option & select the new skin you made. You'll likely need to restart Aurora for it to take effect, so either Restart or Reboot the Xbox 360, or if you've set Aurora as your default dashboard then just hit the Guide button & simply select Aurora Home from the quick menu & answer yes. - Final Step - Aurora should now load again after the console has been rebooted or restarted. If you've managed to follow the steps laid out in this tutorial, you should now have your very own custom BGM track playing on the Aurora dashboard & on loop. Congratulations!!! Now you can listen to your jam while you're exploring every nook & cranny of Aurora! Give yourself a pat on the back for putting it all together!

    Here's a skin for Aurora that I'm surprised hasn't ever been requested, especially given the Xbox 360's backwards compatibility with Xbox Classic games. Further improvements will be looked into towards the foreseeable future. Collaborations are welcome! Current version: v1.1 Previews Recommended cover layouts to use for your enjoyment with this skin: * Ribbon * Stand Up What's included: - Looping Ambience BGM (It's not random like the OG Xbox so you'll hear the same BGM on loop every 5 minutes, but it should be unnoticeable enough to not ruin the immersion.) - Animated & looping background - Custom SFX (Currently has a few SFX for basic button presses & game transitions. Special thanks to jveda & their AuroraNXE skin for the sound references) - Custom wallpapers (Based off the colors from UnleashX, put them in your Backgrounds folder at Xbox360\System\**Wherever Aurora is**\User\Backgrounds & choose from one of them in the Background option from the B button menu. They will not display on this particular theme but it's a trade-off.) - Windows XP style Aurora boot screen tweaked by me (IMO, it meshes very nicely with the skin as a startup.) To-Do List: * Replace the static wallpaper with video background (Animated frames can be done but I don't seem to have good luck with them as they always seem to crash at some point. These two skins made by @TRK_UNIT suggest that video backgrounds are possible to implement) Done! * Try to add more sounds to make it more authentic * Modify the UI to make it feel more like the OG Xbox such as the fonts & color scheme * Fix any issue or bugs present in the theme (Currently Animations are not working & accessing it will bring up the corrupted background texture ) Click on the attached file below to download it. Original Xbox theme v1.1 for Aurora v0.7b.2.zip

    Sorry for very late reply - but, i assume you mean TitleID? that can be found in Aurora. The easiest is to use the FTP feature(s) to edit things. That way you don't have to know any IDs

    Here's what you will need to make themes for Aurora. - XZP Tool ( To extract the files from the theme packages & eventually compile them back into it. ) - Microsoft Xbox 360 SDK ( Contains the Xbox Neighborhood & XuiTool, where you'll spend the majority of your time putting it all together. Because it's an official microsoft tool I don't believe posting a DL link of it is allowed, but you should be able to find it. ) - AuroraElements ( Extension for XuiTool you add to read files made for Aurora. Without it, you'll be thrown with errors. Extract the rar, in XuiTools go to Tools -> Options... -> General Then Under XML Extensions press Change..., then Add... and browse for the extracted xml file. Hit Ok three times and restart XuiTools. You should no longer get any errors when opening the files. ) - Aurora 0.7b.2 Release Package ( Latest version as of this time of writing. Beyond having the contents of Aurora, it has the default XZP skin file you can use to start your theme from scratch. You can also use other XZP files that have been made & uploaded in the past for reference as long as they still work for the latest version of Aurora. Skins made for versions v0.7b & v0.7b.1 are compatible but earlier builds might not. ) If you want to get fancy with your themes, I recommend Audacity for music & sounds and then for making an animated background, use kdenlive to modify the video file, FFMPEG to extract the frames of the video (One of my posts in the OG Xbox skin has a command you can copy & paste to your terminal where you can adjust the value of your framerate to your liking), & Bulk Rename Utilty to rename the extracted frames (Again, one of my posts in the OG Xbox skin details how it works.) You'll also need to have an image-editing tool to modify your skin's texture files. Many of them exist, but I like using Paint.NET. That should be just about enough to get you started & making some skins for Aurora besides consulting some tutorials posted here.

    EDIT : The file is avaible to download at the end of this post. 😉 Hello ! I'm back for the final version of my skin and some screens of it ! So, It's a Auroa 0.7b.1 skin for a Xbox 360 in my Astro City Candy Cab. I've just change the boot screen of SteamOS skin (using Astro City logo), and the background main screen (using some video game logos) I want to credit mrknorton for the original SteamOS skin I've work from, and Felida who helped me change the meta screen. The visuals : Loading Screen. Screen used : Main Screen. Backgroud used : This skin for Aurora 0.7b.1 avaible at the bottom of this post. Enjoy ! ------------------- Below, the WIP ------------------- Hello ! Since I saw all the possibilities offered by Aurora and the tools put in available by the team, it made me want to contribute (modestly) to the group: I decided to make a small skin customization. To start with something simple, I decided to take my skin favorite (SteamOS, by mrknorton) and modify its loading image and its back main plan. My Xbox 360 being in an SEGA AstroCity cabinet, the theme was all found! So I started working on the background. I was looking for a neutral result, not too invsid, but we can guess the references to the video game: Then I worked on a loading image that could refer to the AstroCity. I made several proposals ... ... I even test an other font, but nothing really good ... ... I tested all that, and I realized that my loading image was not the right size (too small). So I redid the image that I liked most to the right size and edited a new skin meta ... and there, it does not work. Aurora does not want to load my skin. Well, as I changed 2 things at once, I will break down my progress by first testing with the loading image at the correct size, and once validated as working, I will do it again skinmeta. I'll let you know what happens next ! The file is avaible to download ! ⬇️ AstrOS_02.xzp

    Hello While two of these scripts have been posted before, the op disappeared along with the download link for script, so with big help from Swizzy (thanks man!) I've recreated them and added a third. Swizzy's original local co-op script works exactly as should, however, due to lots of missing player info from Xbox.com, loads of games were missing from results. I know nothing about script but wanted to added the missing games, and so through lots of trail and error I've managed to do just that. They do not included all available games, but I've added over 250 titles for 360 and XBLA by sourcing co-op data from Co-Optimus. For any missing games, you can manually add title ID to the script. It would be a great help to everyone if you could also post those title ID's here and I'll update script. I will add that 'Local co-op' includes all games where there are co-op elements within game, so not necessary just campaigns, although it would be great if someone could create just that. If there are any mistakes or you simply don't want a particular game returned via script, you can delete the title id (if it's been added manually) or add this to the script... if (Content.TitleId == 0x<TitleID>) then return false end To create scripts, simply open notepad and copy and paste script below. Save with .lua extension and transfer to Xbox 360 > aurora/media/scrpts/UserFilters. You will of course need separate file for each script, so for example in my 'UserFilters' folder I have these three files... Local-co-op.lua Local-co-op-4p.lua Multiplayer.lua So here we go then... Local Co-op Local Co-op 4 Player Local Multiplayer Don't forget if you know of any games that need to be added, please post name of game, it's title id and it's feature, ie co-op, co-op 4 player or multiplayer, and I'll update script. Enjoy!

    I know the guy, it is legit. Code execution not released yet, the exploit is basically from the console not verifying the XVD type. Bad thing is now we need to stop piracy.
