XBMC as Shell - dildotron2000 - 2012-07-14

Hello

I need abit of a hand getting xbmc to luanch as shell, i can get it to succesfull do so using the silent launch and the event ghost method except for one problem . With silent launch you briefly see a window pop up in the back ground befour xbmc opens up and with even ghost, even ghost loads in clear view then runs xbmc which ruins the look . Am i doing anything wrong or is there a way to get around this ?

when i used to use windows for xbmc i used a program called Instantsheller with it you can with one click set it to boot xbmc instead of explorer.exe so it doesn't show you the windows desktop at all you will be still see the windows boot logo but this can be removed by using the tools in the following thread

here is a youtube video of what it will look like afterwards

and here is a link for instantsheller before you set the shell if you go into the instant sheller folder there will be two images both in .png format if you don't want these displayed on bootup you need to change these to something else personally i used google images to find some nice xbmc wallpapers then when you have these open them up in a image editor like photoshop or even paint and resave them in .png format into that instantsheller folder you extract overwriting those two .png files that were there

they will now be the ones displayed instead of the original branded ones
