I know its been a month, but I have been patching all my non 480p games & made a patch file for dvd2xbox.

Most games work with the generic codes, but there are a few that don't & you would disable the generic codes if patching them.

Always backup the xbe before patching.

Any how here is the codes.

Code: Select all

#
#	File put together & added to by Rocky5
#
#	Enable 480p support on 480i games.
#
#	Note:
#	Most 480i Games will be patched with the generic codes, there are exceptions.

#
#	To enable/disable patches just add/remove .

I made a hack for Futurama (PAL).
It changes aspect ratio to 16:9 and resolution from 640x480p to 720x480p.
Instructions: Extract FuturamaPALPatch.zip and patch your default.xbe file using Ninja Patcher.
You can also patch it by hand. Here's the diff:

Code: Select all

Unfortunately no, sorry.

Have you tried using OgXHD? I'm guessing it also uses generic codes, but who knows? Perhaps it has some kind of heuristics too?
There's also an old XBE reader tool called DeXBE.

Some perhaps-helpful links that I've found:

Hello, I know it's very late, I couldn't patch my default.xbe of my PAL future, would you be so kind as to show me how to do it? In that case, couldn't you show me how to apply the hexadecimal codes to be able to patch it? Or in the last case, could you send me your default? Thanks, greetings from Mexico.
