    Hey guys really wanna share some info I have collected, from various places and my own toying with the framework involved in making games and apps for Xbox 360 ,, so here it is.....​

    Make your own "Hello XPG" 360 homebrew in 10 minutes!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vp-Cq1FgD4



    Code:
    Here is how to create the most basic of basic homebrew apps, something like "Hello World"
    
    1 Open Visual Studio
    
    2 Make a new xbox 360 project once loaded click the drop down box in the middle top of the screen and change it from "debug" to "release"
    
    3 Copy "Common" folder at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Xbox 360 SDK\Source\Samples
    
    4 paste this at Hello XPG/Hello XPG/  HERE
    
    5 Right click on the solution on the "solution explorer" and "add" then "add existing project"
    
    6 locate C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\Hello XPG\Hello XPG\Common	and add the project file  "AtgFramework2010.vcxproj"
    
    7 Right click "Hello XPG" in the solution explorer window and open it's properties.
    
    8 Click and open configuration properties on the left pane, then click C/C++  the top line in the main pane should say "additional included directories"
    in the empty space to the right of that type " Common; " (no quotes)
    
    9 Right Click "Hello XPG" in the solution explorer and click the "references" option, then click "add new reference" and add the ATGFramework
    
    10 open the file "Hello XPG.cpp" in your solution and replace all the code with the code from the "Hello World.CPP" in the file pak I included
    
    11 Click the Build tab and "build Solution"
    
    12. locate your XEX file @ Hello XPG\Hello XPG\Release\My Project.xex
    and add it to the included folder alongside the media folder that contains your font
    
    13. transfer to Jtag-RGH-DEV and test out your homebrew ;)
    
    
    






    Thanks to XeDev for some of the source and Carter for the build methods​
    and​
    extra special thanks to everyone at XPG for a great community ;)

    So as an example of how to build on what we started in the main post. Here's a video showing the same basic code where I have changed the font and bkg colors and the button functions etc,,,, but mostly this shows the addition of a mandatory sign in utility that is one of the next steps in creating a complete game with cheevo's and other profile dependent things ;)



    apologies for the video,, but I don't have a capture card/box and xbmovie won't record the HUD functions
