BBlean is bumpy, and experienced too many lockups with BZ, so I revisited xoblite. To my surprise it is very solid, albeit missing a few goodies - that I like. One thing I did like, is that BBI 0.9.9 works right out of the box - where as this was not possible with the newer *box's, they instead, after hours of head scratching used the bbinterface_itunes.  However, even with that figured out, the constant "*box->restart" would always cause a lock up with BZ.

 

However, I digress, I actually made a "mutt" of xoblite, by taking a few things from here and a few things from there, and am now able to run xoblite very smoothly.

But not all things go smooth w/o a hitch. for instance - bbstylemaker, which makes light of an otherwise tedious job, is very finiky in finding folders, since xoblite, I THINK, is the only *box that makes use of themes (A SUB folder for your style that *rc files are controlled independently from the root xoblite.exe.

 

However, I do like a challenge, and the two projects I will be working on - mostly due to my lazieness( and I do this with many apps I work with) will make a stand alone editor for menu.rc and  remake a new stylemaker that works better with xoblite. (I was sure that there was a bbstylemaker that worked with xoblite)

 

Anyways, thought i would bring this to light, as it is, after all, a *box for windows forum. :-)

 

Cheers

Xoblite is really obsolete, man :)

And there are so many things missing from it, I wouldn't even dream of going there, though I love Karl, its creator.

BBInterface works like a dream under BBZero. And bbstylemaker wouldn't work on Xob anyway, since Grichka created it specifically for BBLean and XZero450 (and later Mojmir) managed to port it to BBZero.

You are missing on a lot of stuff... Come back before Xob swallows you alive :)

Ok ok, I came back to BBL, Cant do BBZ, it locks up on me. And bbstylemaker works in xob, you just have to put it in the theme folder you want to work on, so its a little extra work.

 

I have A.D.D. what can i say.

 

but in my defense, XP 64 is obsolete, and I love it :-) (7 is good too for my gaming rig)

No argues about XP, I used it till recently. But by obsolete I meant BBZero can do things, at least stylewise, that Xob can't. And bbstylemaker - the one used under Xob - is obsolete two, since it was created in the days when there were no split gradients and stuff. BBStyleMaker created by XZero450 takes under consideration modern style commands. And you should really start a thread about BBZ freezing on you.
