Re: Is this really necessary ? Xbox Clock Capacitor Removal

Not sure about dates of manufacture. I think there is a way you can check via serial number but I think going to system info in xbmc and checking Xbox version is quite reliable. As for having something to clean the motherboard with, not necessary if the cap hasnt leaked but be careful if you're not ...

Re: Is this really necessary ? Xbox Clock Capacitor Removal

Take a look at the photos asbo posted in this post - taking the cap of is worth doing if you have the top of the xbox off.
I don't know about stock bioses but with a custom bios I can't see a downside to removing the cap.

Changing XBE reigon on xbox?

I brought a 128mb xbox of here a while ago which came over from Germany. Everything works great but after transferring a few backup xbox games onto the harddrive I've realised these games now play in German (German audio, menu etc.). The xbox is using the ind-bios and the hard drive is unlocked. A l...

Re: Modded original xbox HDD issues

Not sure about slayers but if you boot up with a recovery disc such as hexen you'll be able to use the file manager to check if anything is there and then ftp key files off.

Re: Xbox .x files for boot logos

Hey guys, Rocky5 had kindly posted up his files a while ago when I asked about this.
I never got round to using them, can anyone explain how they link to the BIOS? If you use ind-bios for instance can you edit the config file to point to a .x file on the hard disk?

Re: What does the ghostcase includes?

Can't help with the DVD kit sorry although I think I've seen a YouTube tutorial in the past to adapt an xbox 360 clear kit to the original xbox.
Didn't know ghost kits were still being sold. Would be interested to get one, would you mind posting up or sending a pm when you receive it?

Re: Wanted: any old (dead) mobo to cannibalise video connect

my skills involving a soldering iron are terrible and I would have preferred to send across the entire board which obviously would be a bit pricier on postage. If you don't get what you need just give me a shout :)

Re: Thrustmaster Beretta 92FS Light Gun (Original Xbox)

That was the lightgun I was after, I really wanted to get a lightgun set up with Virtuacop3 running on one of N64_freak's 128mb boards.

I'm sure you're aware but with those kinds of guns you're limited to using a CRT TV. If you can get something like an EMS topgun you can use it on an LED TV.

Re: Trusty 1.4GHZ/733mhz 128mb ram

I don't think its turbulence - in some heat transfer applications it is actually actually designed in. Is there anyway the heatsink has been moved/dislodged at all?

Re: Prepare XBOX hdd on PC

Yeah although not sure about using an ide/sata converter. You'll need your backup of the eeprom if you need to lock the drive to use with a softmod. I've used hdm2.2 which runs of a Linux distro and boots from a usb stick (so you're not using windows). Real nice to use and there was a good tutorial ...

Re: Original xbox psu 1.2 to 1.5

That's interesting - does that mean that these mineboa psus, which I've heard have a good reputation, can be wired for a 1.4 as well then? One last question, is there a way to confirm whether it's 240v? I'm sure this one is, theres even a checkbox stating if its 120 or 240v and the right box is tick...
