   - Added new option for CDX menus, "Launch cdx.xbe instead of game xbe"
     This option was be added because some games (ex XIII) doesnt work when are launched from CDX. Selecting this option,
     this games will be launched well from CDX. This mode is explained here:
       + When this option is selected, we make a copy of cdx xbe (cdx.xbe) to game directory, and we modify executable path
       in CDX configuration file for the file cdx.xbe (but renamed to zxbtools.xbe)
       + Executing the game from menu, zxbtools.xbe will be launched. How configuration files of cdx doesnt be finded in
       game directory, default.xbe of his directory will be launche, so, will be launched the game (without pressing button)
       + If this option is selected and some game have "cdxmedia" directorio (this only happends when game have demos), a

SKINS CDX
------------

  Menus created with CDX can be very customizables, zxbtools have the options that i have considered more common, but
  CDX has many others. For that reason i include the file "CDX_Readme.txt" in wich all possibilities of configuration
  are explained.
  
  In order to try to take advantage of this possibilities, you can create your own skins. Skins must be in a subfolder of
  directory THEMES_CDX of zxbtools. So that zxbtools can recognize skin, this must have at least four files:
  	- cdx.inx
  	- cdx.xpr
  	- cdx.xsb
  	- cdx.xwb  
  ZXBTools does not verify that skin is correct, only check the existence of the four files mentioned before. So, new files
  and folders can be added to skin dir. All the files will be copied in the folder "cdxmedia" in the root directory of DVD,
  this way you can add new options to configuracion file "CDX.INX".	
  	
  You can modify "CDX.INX" file of your skin, but, it is necessary to consider certain points so that menu works well:
  	- Not include the section "[MainMenu]" in the configuration file.
  	- Names of sections like [Game1] [Game2]... [GameX] cant be used. ZXBTools uses these names for the games, if
  	  you use these names menu wont work.
  	- ZXBTools add the section "[MainMenu]" in cdx.inx file after this text "## Mainmenu Goes Here". Is necessary to
  	  consider that section "[MainMenu]" has to be first after of sections "[Config]" and "[Layout]". Therefore,
  	  line "## Mainmenu Goes Here" must be after these sections and before of the sections that we add. A example of
  	  this we will show continuation.

  For example, we want that when initiating the load of menu two videos will be played. For this, you would add to
  configuration file "CDX.INX" this: 
  	  
********************************* EXAMPLE *********************************************

[Config]
.....

[Layout]
.....

## Mainmenu Goes Here

[Video1]
Action="Video"
FileName="cdxmedia\videos\video1.xmv"

[Video2]
Action="Video"
FileName="cdxmedia\videos\video2.xmv"

[IntroAttract]
Video1
Video2
********************************* EXAMPLE *********************************************

  As can be seen in CDX_Readme.txt file the section "[IntroAttract]" indicate the videos will be played when menu in
  started. As we knowk that all the files of skin would be copied to folder "cdxmedia", we can put our video's paths.
  In this example, videos will be stored in the folder "videos" of our theme, and were called "video1.xmv" and
  "video2.xmv".
