  1. if you want I386/setup.exe to be patched It is recommended to apply XPtsp BEFORE using bashrat's Driver Pack's.
  2. Live Bootscreen Patcher v2.4 (Date: 09-Sept-'09) MD5b9fda6fe272aad3c3c7d0ad85ca964cc Size:1,85MB ~ Screenshots~ Requirements: ~ Windows XP (x86) only (All Bootscreens are tested on an up-to-date SP3 XP Pro) ~ Languages: all Containing: ~ Green, Blue, Red, and Purple Vista-like bootscreens. ~ The ability to patch your kernel with a custom bootscreen ~ The ability to patch your kernel in a XP-CD Source with a custom bootscreen __________________________________ Sample:TV-Test screen v1.2 Custom "bootscreen": By Kirs More Bootscreens Here Bootscreen requests can be made in this topic, perhaps we can realize them. How-to make your own bootscreen: To make a custom bootscreen, you'll need an imaging program which can index .bmp's to 4bit (16 colors). For example you can use "Gimp" (Freeware). Since we used this software, the rest of this tutorial and the steps described below are based on Gimp. First, you'll need two sample bitmaps (background & progress bar) which you can later modify. These .bmp files can be obtained by clicking on the "Get BMP's" button in the LBS Patcher or through an sample .lbs file (extract with eg. 7-Zip). You can save them anywhere you like.Now, open the .bmp files in Gimp and open the color map (Windows > Dockable dialogs, also see the screenshot below). If you like you can change the colors in the pallet a bit, but you can not add colors. 16 is the maximum! Also the first color has to be black (value: 000000).After modifying, you'll have to save the two files. Save the background image as 'BG.bmp' and the progress bar image as 'PB.bmp'. If you have multiple layers, please merge them when saving to keep the correct color pallet. The BG.bmp should have a resolution of 640x480.Go to the location where you saved the images and zip the BG.bmp and PB.bmp files together. You can name this file whatever you like, as long as it has this composition: "anyname_boot.zip". (You can zip, rar or 7z the 2 bitmap's and even rename it to"anyname_boot.lbs" if you like, but all will work "anyname_boot.zip, rar,7z") Now you can select "Custom Bootscreen" in the patcher and locate your "anyname_boot.zip" file!! Screenshot: Gimp Change log: ~ v2.1 auto-change the colors from the 4bit pallet in the kernel to the 4bit color pallet used in the bitmap. redone all bootscreen bitmaps and hex edited them to make them visible. added red and purple XPtsp bootscreens added preview popup window (tnx Dougiefresh) new way to use custom bootscreens via zipped bitmaps from any provided location. added checks to make sure correct bitmaps are being used. added a get sample button. multi lang support. ~ v2.2 The ability to patch your kernel in a XP-CD Source with a custom bootscreen Added some skins Some minor error fixes ~ v2.3 Fixed bootscreen fade-in at XP start Major patching speedup added a button to check for update/bootscreens (navigates to the default browser) repairs a bug from v2.2 minor script fixes and updates ~v2.4 updated the uninstaller new setup installer (inno setup) added checks for kernel Update's or Downgrades (to make a new backup) ~ Todo: auto detect xp language. add more bootscreen files to the patcher. add more languages. change the colors from the 4bit pallet in the kernel to the 4bit color pallet used in the bitmap. (ability to move progress bar up or down.) GUI Updates/ideas. GUI support: Dougiefresh GUI Graphix: Kirs GUI: Mr.Fixit Gr Fixit
  3. network conection = inetcpl.cpl.res(mui, dll), xpsp2res.dll.res regional = intl.cpl.res (syssetup.dll.res) timezone = timedate.cpl automatic updates = wuaucpl.cpl.res (mui) i think

  13. i can add this for people who are translating XPtsp: you can find name changes in layout.inf in xp source folder. example :"lhmstsc.chm = 100,,111872,,,,,21,0,0,mstsc.chm)" My finds (in dutch xp) mstscax.dll = -> "lhmstscx.dll" before install mstsc.exe = -> "lhmstsc.exe" before install xpsp1res.dll = -> "sprs0413.dll" before install xpsp2res.dll = -> "sprt0413.dll" before install xpsp3res.dll = -> "spru0413.dll" before install note: when live patching on live system the files will be named just like the english files... Extra: Resfiles with langID: "0" (neutral) on foren xp.. msgr3en.dll.res srclient.dll.res setup.exe.res msi.dll.res
