AvaControl is a program that basically does everything from the computer. I am still working on the FTP bit, and renaming XBE files etc.. That will hopefully be soon. You can restart, turn off, format drives, whatever all from the computer. When you first run AvaControl you will be required to set everything up. Just right click and choose "settings", fill in the form and press Apply, this will save the settings and apply them to AvaControl.

XB-News, as it was originally named, was written to fulfill my own needs for an easy to use, specific Xbox RSS newsfeed reader. After its initial release I recieved plenty of user feedback and requests to support other console specific sites. This led to two more versions being written to support the Gamecube and Playstation communities. Again following more feedback from users I decided to develop one version which would support any RSS newsfeed. So here we have the new, more powerful, more configurable, RSS-News.
Xbox-Scene.com RSS feed is also supported.

Virtual Xbox CD Ripper (VXCR) is a program that is used to take your songs off of your computer and build an Xbox sountrack. What the program does is it takes your songs and has to convert them to Windows Media Audio (WMA) format in order for the Xbox to think that it was copied via the built in copy function to the Microsoft dashboard. You can select different types of files including: mp3, mp2, mp1, wma, ogg & wav. This program will also transfer the songs to the correct directory on the Xbox via FTP and also modify the ST.DB file to let the Xbox know that the song is there.

XBFTPHelper is a batch file that gives your computer a temporary private IP address for FTPing to your Xbox, and reassigns a DHCP address after your FTP session has ended. This is useful if your ISP assigns a SNMask, like mine does, which limits your LAN transfer speeds to the capped speed of your cable/dsl modem. I have a feeling that this is not a common problem, but hopefully someone else will find this useful.
This might seem a bit complicated, but I found that having to click my way to TCP/IP settings in control panel all the time was pretty tedious. With this batch file, all that's required after the one-time setup is a double-click, and everything else is done for you.

* Supports regular and noroam signatures
* Does not support Xor32 or Xor64 signatures YET
* Will work even if you don't know the AuthKey, because you can patch your xbe file with my Non-XBL AuthKey Patcher and use that as the AuthKey
* Includes a frontend for the Non-XBL AuthKey Patcher program
* The ultimate goal of the program is to have a complete database of resign info for ALL Xbox games, which can only be acheived by use of the program and feedback to me
* Willing to add any AuthKey to the list, that won't allow cheating on XBL, by request, and then you can find the resign info and give it back to me, at which time I will update the online database with that info
* If the game is an XBL game and it allows cheating I will still post the resign info using the Non-XBL AuthKey

The success of this program will depend on interested people making requests for AuthKeys and then finding the resign info so i can add it to the database.

I hope people will download and use it.

>> xSEX
xSEX is a little tool for opening the soundbanks and wavebanks (*.xsb and *.xwb) used in the Xbox applications/games.
The soundbank have a corresponding wavebank, where the actual samples are stored.
xSEX opens a soundbank (*.xsb) and retrieves the sample names from it. These are the names of the samples that is located in the wavebank (*.xwb). xSEX then presents the names of the samples, the size of the samples, the name of the wavebank where the samples are stored and the location (offset) in the wavebank where the sample starts.
So, you need a soundbank and the wavebank that is related to it.
I haven't been able to figure out where the information regarding the wave files are stored, things like mono or stereo, bitdepth or samplerate.
You need to fiddle around with the xSEX settings until you hear that the sound plays okey.
When you have a 'good' sample, hit SAVE and xSEXsaves the wavefile, just like you heard it play.
