Question about games on xbmc: Why is this?

Post by evilted » Tue Jul 30, 2013 3:23 pm

Hello
I think I found a bug or something.
I want to play the pal version of egg mania: eggstreme madness.
The game is pal only. So I used the option in xbmc programs that I can choose the region( pal, pal 60, ntsc etc).
I´ve selected Pal and I can only hear the game sound + a black screen.
This was on a Xbox 1.0 with aladin modchip & evox Bios.
Then I put the harddrive into an other xbox (xbox 1.1 with TSOP Flash and x2 bios from hexen disc)
and tried it again (same settings)- and it worked.

So my question is: Why is this? Has this something to do with the bios?
Or is this because of the xbox version?

sry for my bad english :)

C'mon troggy, if you know the answer help him.

@evilted
It probably is your modchip / BIOS.

This is probably not that much related to XBMC4Xbox - you can use another dash to confirm that it doesn't work either way.
You might find more help on xbox-scene.com > xbox1 forums (http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php? ... 04,111,113)

Think Eggo Mania is the pal name/edition of this game.

The point he is making is that no-one has answered maybe because no-one knows the answer.

NO, but I will try it out.
The point is that the game is running correctly but only on the Xbox with X2 Bios.
Thats what I dont understand.
Why this option in XBMC (that you can select how to run the game...Pal Pal60 NTSC ...) works with the Xbox with X2 Bios but not with the Xbox with Evox Bios for the game.
I took the HDD out from Xbox with Evox Bios and put it into the Xbox with X2 Bios.
I chnged nothing - all the same settings. Game works perfect.
Then put the HDD back in Xbox with Evox Bios - only sound + black screen.
I´m a big fan of XBMC and I use it since years and never had problems...This is the first and only one.

Ps- Thanks to all your answers. And thanks for your work on XBMC4Xbox.

Yes I was angry because no one answered me after weeks !

And I think the Forum has nothing to do with the product !!!

I dont like SOny but I still watch BLu Rays !
You see my point?

@evilted
A couple of people already suggested this, have you tried running the game through another dashboard (e.g. UnleashX, etc)

Also, in your xbmc.old.log, just before it ends does it say something like?
"Rebooting to change resolution from ... back to ..."

@see if (g_guiSettings.GetBool("myprograms.gameautoregion")
http://redmine.exotica.org.uk/projects/ ... cation.cpp

It probably depends on the Kernel (BIOS) used - the code is a hack, might not work on all.

@see CUtil::PatchCountryVideo(F_COUNTRY Country, F_VIDEO Video)
http://redmine.exotica.org.uk/projects/ ... c/Util.cpp

No as I wrote a few minutes before I will try a different dash later.
Thanks for your support Dan Dar3 but I dont understand nothing you wrote. I´m not a nerd :)
I will report back when I tried a differnent dashboard.

Thanks again for your support
