Re: force 480p spider-man 2

If the game doesn't support widescreen then black bars either side of the image area would be expected on a widescreen display. 480p on the Xbox is 640 x 480 progressive scan ie. 4:3 if the game does not support widescreen. As I understand it even if it does support WS then its often not really true...

Re: force 480p spider-man 2

According to the Xbox games' "alternative display modes" list Spiderman 2 does not support WS but you should be able to get it displaying in 480p.

What AV cable type are you using?

Re: fat xplorer Xbox formatting tools

The problem I was having was definitely a specific external housing/WDC HDD firmware issue. The trouble was actually fixed by a FATXplorer update. That very quickly followed after I'd opened a support ticket explaining the trouble. But since I've bought a different (better) external housing supporti...

Re: New hdd and build install

As long as your Xbox DVD drive is working OK the simplest way of doing this is by using a disc like HeXEn although my preference would be to use AID. With AID you get a one-click install menu option for either chipped/TSOPed machines or softmods. Its almost foolproof. Essentially all that happens is...

Re: Please please please help...I think I just deleted my whole XBOX setup

Can't help you directly because the Xenium OS which is pre-installed on the chip your Xbox is using is foreign territory to me. But the fact is your Xbox is chipped and whatever the problem it can be sorted because your Xbox should still be able to boot original games discs and installer/rescue disc...

Re: Can tsopped xbox softmod other Xbox drive?

Six year old thread but still an interesting technique I'd not heard about as a way of unlocking a Xbox whether modded or not. It suggests to me a, now possibly better, use for it with FATXplorer ie. unlocking and then hot-swapping to PC either USB IDE external housing or direct IDE connection if av...

Re: fat xplorer Xbox formatting tools

Thanks for the info. That could be very useful - if I can get the ITB WD AF HDD I want to use to be recognised by FATXplorer which at the moment I can't when it is already FATX formatted with dash installed etc. I've opened a support ticket but my suspicion is that the problem is to do with the USB ...

Re: Bought a Xbox that hasnt been turned on in 14 years.

Any mod hard or soft doesn't affect the ability to play original discs. It adds the ability to play backup discs (DVD-R/ImgBurn) and by install using FTP. Your Xbox is likely softmodded, the retail BIOS being reported by XBMC suggests that. Its a Xbox v1.6 so it can not be be a TSOP. XBMC v2.0 is ve...

Re: Hardmoded Xbox Won't Run Games

It's a v1.6 so there is a possibility it is a 480p issue and your TV doesn't support 480i via Component or whatever cable type you're using. Fable is definitely one of the games on the v1.6 480p patch list but not sure about The Lost Chapters version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZzFDJrN7W8 Rock...

Re: Previews for XBMC4GAMERS

Do you have any other installed dashboards you can test the original XMVs you have? The UnleashX dash is the main reason the preview files are all XMV format as it can't play MP4s. They, the XMVs, should play from the UnleashX file manager wherever you have them and any games with a "preview.xm...

What type of video file are you trying to convert to MP4 using Rocky5's Resize MP4 to Xbox Size tool? I haven't done extensive testing with multiple file types, just some XMV previews I had already made, using another tool, for use with an UnleashX main dash. All I did is download the tool from the ...

Re: Xbox original aladdin modchip issue

If you have not installed a dashboard then that's your error 13 explained. It can be caused for other reasons but that seems the most likely. The chip allows you to boot an installer disc, like HeXEn, AID or Slayers and install a dash (Chip/TSOP options). Chances are the problem with the HeXEn disc ...

Re: Red and green

Just read/green continuously or red/green with two restarts.

Generally red/green is not good - often hardware or component failure or trace damage often caused by leaking capacitors.

Blank screen but sound could be resolution support issue or regional setting.

The game only supports PAL and there are other both PAL and NTSC games...

Yes, that's an almost generic XBMC error when the existing installation is corrupted in some way and can. of course, also appear when using an incompatible skin version. Always better to download a full new version to another folder and test that works rather than to try and update a running version...

Oh its: OpenXDK (since corrected in the earlier post) the Open Xbox Development Kit not OpenXDH. Dumb of me not to realise that and might be why I didn't get any hits when Googling.

Re: Help with newly acquired xbox

With a TSOP the Xbox is effectively like a chipped machine which means you can pretty much do whatever you want without too much risk. A TSOP in this case is simply a shorthand Xbox modding term for the replacement of the original Xbox BIOS with a new one. That is written to the, previously read onl...

I didn't get answer to this at the time and I'd actually forgotten I'd asked this question here.
