Re: X2/X3 BIOSes won't load some games?! (others do)

I found pressing the small white button on gamepad whilst on selected game allows the option to run in PAL, NTSC modes. So do this before actually selecting the game to run, via X. I found a lot of PAL games especially did exactly this when set to Nstc modes ie 720P etc. I own an X3 myself and poste...

Re: Picked up another xbox

Caps can be bought from RS Components, Maplin or any electronic component dealer, beware Ebay as cheap replicas are often sold. Capacitors have a uf rating printed on the side, this must be adhered to. The Voltage rating is also printed which can be greater than the voltage rated but NEVER lower. It...

Re: Xbox with TSOP Flash stopped working, blinks Red Light

That`s what used to be known as the Christmas tree effect when a chip has been installed badly, bad LPC header connections, D0 etc. An Aladdin XT2 or TSOP can be reflashed via Hexen Tools disc or Slayers All In One Disc. A TSOP box will have to have been soft modded prior in order to run the tools d...

Re: Who runs a 2Tb drive?

I always use a ultra ata ribbon cable with my adaptors (cheap and will eliminate that). I put all emulators on F in specific folders to me as I use my own adapted skin which requires this. I put all my Xbox games on G in a folder called, you guessed it "Xbox Games" for the above reason. Once all my ...

Re: Who runs a 2Tb drive?

Ok, i`m sorry but I have to disagree with anyone slating the Seagate ST2000DM001. I have personally supplied around 32 x 2tb modified xboxes with this drive and all remain fully functional and reliable. My drives have been brand new and fitted with Ultra ATA ribbon cables to a sata adaptor I have fo...

Re: Can tsopped xbox softmod other Xbox drive?

Is it just me or is anyone else thinking wtf at
After rinsing it off and drying in a toaster it boots up fine

And I thought kitchen appliances were limited to xbox casings in the dish washer, obviously I haven`t seen the potential in all
other kitchen items, microwave etc :shock:

Re: Case Mods Showcase

Thanks guys, I did find a gamepad and did the same, its a fast simple paint job that looks almost stock. Little or no chance of making a hash of it as long as you clean it well and strip it right down. If you own a crystal its a must in my book now, some great spray colours around too, just be light...

Re: Case Mods Showcase

I`m more a function over asthetics fella but today i decided to spray paint a crystal from the inside. I steeped the casings in liquid sugar soap as it came from a nicoteen home and had a lovely yellowish tinge hence volunteered itself to me loose with a paint can. I was passed the idea by a Youtube...

Re: Atari 520 ST skip rescue

I believe it was Atari`s competition to the mighty Commodore Amiga 500. It has a massive collection of games and from what i can remember was great for music utilities for all budding beat boys back in the day. I`m sure google and other members will have a more nostalgic and informative description,...

Re: XBOX 2TB SATA Upgrade Tutorial

Sorry, I have no tales to tell on the use of Hitachi drives. The adaptors are quite cheap to buy and a suitable 24" Dual Ultra ATA ide ribbon cable should be reasonably cheap too. The adaptor pictured has a jumper which is important if your using Chimp on a softmodded box, Cable select mode is requi...

Re: 2 TB WD Green

I have definately had issues with this model. I`m sure I used chimp on
a softmod and had no luck so fitted an aladdin and still had bother so
chucked it in my pc. Only 2tb I stand by is Seagate st2000dm001 which
was formerly the Barracuda and now just called Desktop in the UK anyway.
