Re: Menu Text not displaying on Games

Obviously it is not a HDD formatting issue so that is very good news. Problem is now finding where the problem is in the game and why it should apparently repeat for what you'd think must be different downloads which are unlikely all to be suffering the same fault, if that is what it is. Sorry I sho...

Re: Menu Text not displaying on Games

It worries me that you've said you have hundreds of games on the HDD and you're using a 2TB HDD. Please tell me that F:\ and G:\ were correctly formatted for equal space. They should both be exactly the same total size, <1GB. If you are not sure use XBPartioner v1.3 to check; just to check, do not r...

Re: Menu Text not displaying on Games

Sounds weird - you are talking about the in game menus having the problem, not XBMC4Gamers or other dashboard menus? What other games (PAL/NTSC) display with this problem? Are you using a AV Composite cable or Component cable? I doubt it matters as regards this problem but it is not clear; "RBY" is ...

Re: Problem with ftp

The fact it says Xecuter 2 4977 suggests it may have been chipped at some point. I assume you're using XBMC dash: where, in the settings, does it give you that information? Is the HDD shown as locked or unlocked? If it is unlocked then it can not be a softmod. BTW please do not mess around with the ...

Re: Xbmc4 hard disk settings ?

The default HDD settings for XBMC are:- HDD spindown time: Off Immediate HD spindown: Off Acoustic management level: Fast Power management level: High power There is no need to change any of these settings, even the power management level. I doubt any change in the HDD power management level setting...

Re: XBOX dash not loading

Either of those discs mention would/should have done that automatically. C:\ drive for the main dash XBE is standard for chipped machine but for softmods it is more common to be installed on E:\. However that does depend entirely on the softmod - some really old softmods were put on C:\ and Rocky5's...

Re: XBOX dash not loading

If the HDD wasn't FATX formatted/partitioned it would explain why simply FTPiing did not work but what was the specific problem installing a dash using a HeXEn disc? With a functioning chip and a new clean HDD it should have walked you through the formatting and dash install, an AID disc likewise. I...

Re: Xbox error 7 and 9

Error 9 on a retail HDD is completely outside my experience. You are sure it is/was a retail state Xbox and has not been opened, previously softmodded, chipped or TSOPed ie. before what you tried to do it booted as normal to the MS dash? Can you still cold boot (disc loaded in tray, Xbox shutdown th...

Re: Xbox error 7 and 9

The method shown in the YT I'm really not familiar with but seems risky for anyone new to this stuff. I must start this by saying I've ever tried a hot-swap an IDE Xbox HDD to a PC with an IDE connection. I have done it with an external USB housing but despite trying very much what is shown in that ...

Re: Cloning HDD

Cloning the HDD with that much stuff is going to be a very slow process too but I think Rocky5's updated Chimp version Chimp261812 can format and clone F:\ (and G:\?) drives too. The F:\ and G:\ drives of a 2TB HDD must be correctly formatted to use the correct cluster size and space equally assigne...

Re: Modded XBOX game play help

If you can get a HeXEn disc to boot then you can probably get a game to boot too. Cold boot ie. put the (original) game in the tray, close it then shutdown the Xbox and restart. With a chipped/softmod anything not an original MS Xbox game disc should also boot in the same way but it must have been b...

Re: Change Video Output get black screen

Please do not double post or use a really old thread (last post here was 2017) for a new problem. It doesn't bother me but some people here don't like it and you'll likely get help quicker in a new thread anyway.

I've posted about your resolution settings problem in your other thread.

Re: Changed video output/ black screen

This sort of thing is very common particularly when a TV/monitor does not support a particular display output. Another example is switching the Xbox to PAL when using a screen that does not support interlaced resolutions. The Xbox 'flubber' screen is SD (480i) so if you're seeing that it suggests th...

Re: Random black screen when gaming. Help!

That is strange behaviour; I did not know you could use NKPatcher to force progressive scan (480p?) with the Xbox set to PAL. But why switching to NTSC causes the problem described I won't even speculate. My inclination would be to redo the softmod, perhaps with Rocky5's Softmodding Tools package in...

Re: Random black screen when gaming. Help!

I've just skated through that thread. Very interesting, particularly the suggestion that this might be caused by local power surges in your home or close by from other electrical devices turning on/off. I wonder if nearby telecoms equipment might also be a possible cause; I have TV STBs which are se...

I've do not remember reading about anything similar to what you've just described. Random video loss is unusual. A few things I would ask if it the video cut out occurs if you play the game from disc rather than installed to the HDD? Does it just happen during games or at other times too? Are there ...

You've the best advice in this thread you'll probably find anywhere about this subject.

Only other solution there might be (and I do not know if will even work in this case as kernel issu...
