Re: Why does this happen? Any help??

For those games larger than 4.37GB you'll need to use dual layer media/burning. Never done this myself so can not advise. What disc drive is your Xbox fitted with: found in XBMC (I)Information. It'll either be Thomson, Samsung, Philips or Hitachi? You can also identify it using the tray design:- htt...

Re: Why does this happen? Any help??

Typical disc media incompatibility issue. If you burned them on DVD-R they should all work and I'd think it being some issue with the DVD drive hardware. But if you burned them on different media (even the brand can make a difference) then that is probably the cause. Pickiest disc drives are the Phi...

Re: Softmod - lockable HDD upgrade not recognized as locked

Fingers crossed but if it was Chimp 2.4 you used it is very likely the cause the problem. I'm guessing that there was a good reason why Chimp 2.4 was replaced by Chimp 2.6 and that could be because it was incompatible or had issues with later Xbox versions ie. v1.4. Likewise Chimp 2.6 itself was rep...

Re: Softmod - lockable HDD upgrade not recognized as locked

What Chimp version? You should be using Chimp 261812 - Rocky5 honed this updated version of Chimp 2618 a few years back and it is unarguably the only version anyone should use now. It works with any Xbox version and all (?) of the issues there were with some features of the earlier versions addresse...

Re: Softmod - lockable HDD upgrade not recognized as locked

What version Xbox? What version Chimp? Are you using and original MS Xbox controller? Any flash drives, other controllers, DVD dongles or memory cards attached? If so detach everything but the controller (no memory card) in the first port. Depending what your main dash is and the settings the screen...

Re: softmod cloning help

If the emulators and roms were on the E:\drive they should have been included with everything else on C:\ and E:\. So I can't explain why they did not. Did you use Chimp261812? That is Rocky5's last Chimp update and should be used in preference to any earlier version if you can find it. With a v1.6 ...

Re: softmod cloning help

Have to ask: how was the original 1TB HDD Xbox modded? Softmod or chip? Not sure if this is relevant but if both are softmods were they done with the same softmodding tools? There is a way around this and that is to use Chimp261812 to clone the softmodded 8GB HDD to the new 1TB HDD in the normal way...

Re: Max Fan Speed?

There's no code for setting maximum fan speed but you can set it to 100% if you want to do that very easily. Just go to Settings > System > General, tick the Fan speed override and raise it to 100% - simple. If you untick that but do not tick the Auto temperature control option XBMC will still use t...

Re: Need help!! With my Xbox

^ Yes, but it should be cold booted. The disc must be burned (preferably using ImgBurn) to DVD-R, the only universal Xbox compatible media. The fact you can see the boot up animation is an encouraging sign ie. there is video output. BTW make sure to use a SD only cable ie. AV Composite. There can be...

Re: Updating XBMC when XBMC is running as the dashboard

^ Yes but you have to be very careful not to shutdown the Xbox during the renaming process and, of course, make sure the renaming is exactly the same as your original installation or you risk having an unbootable Xbox. That would be particularly problematic if it is a softmod. One thing I suggest do...

Re: Upgrade

It will depend how it was modded (softmod/chip/TSOP), how XBMC was installed and consequently the location of the XBMC main dashboard folder and .XBE. In general all you'd need to do is find a copy of the most recent version, which I think is still v3.5.3, and replace the existing installation with ...

Re: Unleash x switch xbmc dash

Some old skins do not work on v3 series XBMC and some skins, including updated ones, now do not work or may not have full functionality if applied to older XBMC versions. The only way to find out is to test whether it works or not but it is not advisable to do that on XBMC installed as your main das...

Re: Xbox - Is this a modded dashboard?

Hey, thanks for the reply. The main thing in reference is that it says "Full Game" for Sega Gt 2002 and Jet Set Radio Future, by default I didn't think you could add stuff like this to the hard drive, they are selling this as non modded. It indicates that buffy and blinx are "videos" can you copy t...

Re: Unleash x switch xbmc dash

If you want to use something that is optimized for an older XBMC version then the safest and I think most sensible solution is to install the older version of XBMC as an app. I would not recommend 'downgrading' your main XBMC dash to an earlier version. I have a mirror version of v3.5.3 installed as...

Re: Xbox - Is this a modded dashboard?

It is impossible to tell whether the Xbox is actually modded or not from that picture. The shot shows a demo games' disc main menu and that is what it will look like whether played from the retail or a modded console dash. I actually recognised the demo disc as a version of one that came free with t...

Re: Skin project create or modify

Personally I gave up on any idea I had about creating a XBMC skin. I have found it difficult enough to work out what to edit amongst the dozens of XMLs used to create my preferred XBMC skin (the updated Xbox-Classic) just for some relatively simple adjustments/corrections I wanted to make. There is ...

Re: Unleash x switch xbmc dash

Using HeXEn to replace the dash would have been what I would have suggested for a chipped machine too. It is not clear what you want now: is it to make the XBMC splash screen appear slower or remain longer? With UnleashX, particularly if you have a large amount of dash content set to load on start, ...
