+----------------------+| Usage |+----------------------+

Its very easy to use, but we'll cover the basics here. XBox-Saves Manager uses EvolutionX's and Avalaunch's wonderful ftp server to get at yourgame saves. This of course means that you need to be running EvolutionX or Avalaunch before you can connect with XBSM. The first thing you need to do is bring up the Connection Manager and set your XBox IP address indicated in Evolution-X and Avalaunch. You can also set up different connection profiles as well. The rest of the options are pretty straight forward, and you can play with them whenever you get a chance.

Once you've setup that information, hit OK and the Connection Manager window will close. You can now hit the green Connect button on the toolbar and XBSM will connect to your XBox and download the information it needs to create a list of all the saves on it. You will then see whatever saves you have in the XBox pane.

If you want to send a save to your PC, simply select the save or saves you want to send, and hit the arrow in the center of the window that points to the PC pane. It will send the saves to your PC, compress and store them automatically for you. Reverse this process to send saves from your PC to your XBox. There is a description data you can edit for every save on your PC. Double-click a save to edit this info.

You can also browse to different folders on your PC where you have saves stored to load into XBSM.

If you have a memory card, you can plug it into the XBox and have XBSM read the saves stored on the card and list them in the XBox pane. However, in order for XBSM to recognize the memory card, there must be at least one save stored on it. This just scratches the surface, there are a lot more features.

Play around with it and you should be able to figure most everything out without any difficulty!

+----------------------+| Known Issues |+----------------------+

XBSM currently relies on Microsoft's WInInet.dll for FTP connectivity and Microsoft had bugs in their older versions of this DLL file. They fixed it and it is distributed with products such as IE 5.5 (or higher), Windows XP, etc.

If you're having any connectivity problems between your PC and XBox and are using an older version of IE and/or an older version of Windows, try updating to IE 5.5 or higher.
