Launching Games

Depending on whether your game was downloaded from Xbox Live or ripped from a disc, it will show up in the respective tab for "Downloaded Content" or "Extracted DVD Game". Launch it by pressing A.

Extracting Cover Art

By hovering over a game and pressing Y, you have the option to extract artwork directly from the game. Not all games have extractable artwork, but the options are as follows:

  • Extract HD Picture: This will extract a HD picture from the game and place it in the Wallpapers section of the dashboard.
  • Extract Preview: This will extract a picture from the game that will be placed in the box on the right hand side of the game launcher.
  • Extract Icon: This will extract the game icon and display it to the left of the game title.

Press Y and Refresh to accept changes.
