Well, I thought this would be an interesting idea. We have a show off your games thread so why not show off your Dashboard background?

I actually just figured this out recently that you can change the background to anything you want so mine has only been changed once.

Woah, woah, woah! I didn't know we could get chicks! Are these from the US marketplace? :confused:

And you say that you change it to anything you want...

How? :confused:

I thought we were restricted to the themes they released over the Marketplace...

Using the media center I think Cold, You get images from your PC and do it.

Also if you have a cd with pics on it you can put that in your 360 and go into the pics and apply which ever to your background. Ive got a nice lil picture on mine, well i did but i changed it to halo cing that market place backgound and then it was off the next day. Ill edit this to show you guys mine when i get home later (watching the rams suck it up once again sadly :()

Well, it was only after a good hour of trying to sync my 360 to my pc that I realised that you had to have XP Media Centre installed, not just XP. :o

Turns out you can use a normal USB to transfer the images.

Looking on Skins.be for a good pic of Miss Knightley! ;)

Yeah, also if you have WMP11 and use that to stream music etc to your 360, just browse through my pictures and set it to background. I've got a picture of some Oreca Vipers on mine!

Chances are that the file size is too small. On your camera, try playing with the settings to increase the resolution. I used 6MP and that worked great!

Yep this is what I do too or sometimes if I have a crapload of pictures I burn them to a blank CD throw them in my Xbox 360 and use all the pics as a theme once and it saves it so you can always go back and re-select it.

Right now I am just using the theme that you can download for the Halo 3 360.

09-24-2007, 01:52 AM
I use either the Heroes theme that you can buy on Live or the Halo 3 theme...even though I think it looks stupid.

I also have a condemned theme that came on an OXM demo disk.

Same. And usually my theme's are the new movie theme's and shit to come out. I use to have the GTA 3 theme,Shoot 'Em Up,Smokin' Aces and all those. I'm a cheap bastard and not spending points on a theme only I see, not worth it lol.

Although, I did buy a Cubs theme a few months back. Woo hoo, go Cubs! Lol.:)

Yeah, I suck now, I just have the standard carbon one, and I thought it looked cool until now.

Then again if the wifey comes in and I have half-naked ladies on my X-box it will probably get thrown out the window while she's jumping on it, so maybe I should just stick with the carbon

Actually, I don't think any themes come with the Marketplace blade...since when you go to different sections of the marketplace, the theme changes.

I wish they did have Marketplace blade portions of themes though...I wouldn't mind if it changed while I was browsing but it'd be better than the red Carbon...thing...

Our Marketplace blade themes don't change here in the UK... Yet.

Most likely when we get the video marketplace is when we see the changing Marketplace blade. :)

As for adding your own pictures, what size are the images in dimension that you use for the background?

cyberhookup
09-26-2007, 04:01 PM
GTA 4 or 5 I can't remember what the new 1 is. I don't like that if you do your own back round it shows it on all the blades. They should make it so that when you make your own back round you can make it so that each blade has its own picture.

For mine, I just got the biggest picture I could find and it sized it up perfectly on its own once I made it my background.

I use the Cult of Rapture one, I only use free themes since I will usually change them every once in a while. I might make myself a One Piece/Mr.Flibble one though.

One question for those who have uploaded pictures to use, does it only use a single picture on all blades or can you use four (five)?

Last time I tried to upload pictures it only lets you use 1 picture for all blades which is why I don't upload my own pictures.

Yeah, it's only one picture on every blade except the Marketplace.

It would be nice if you could change each one but that isn't the case right now.
