The DVD drive in general for the console are crap.
You're welcome bro, you gotta do what you gotta do.
Could be a bad laser which Thompson and Philips drives are notorious for. Pot-tweak and see if you're able to boot a game on it, if it at least loads a loading screen then the system should be ok.
Can't go wrong with a HORI stick. I own the Dead or Alive 5 release of it, but it's a wired arcade stick and works fine with MotionJoy.
You need to remove the top of the case in order to pop the faceplate off.. The glossy part is clipped onto the faceplate which is covered by the top of the console.
Even if you put in another HDD it will force you to format it, so you'll have to reinstall your shit anyway ;)
Flash it with the SmartXX BIOS, and run EvoX to flash it. Then you can restore the XBOX back by XBOXHDM, or install the latest XBOX dash, and make it the default booting dash then remove all other...
You might be able to splice the BIOS, but not sure if it work.
US versions are never rarer, and will be cheaper.
It's not worth buying one softmodded. The process isn't long and there's many easy to follow guides out there, you might need 20 minutes or so of free time... maybe less.
Buy your kids something...
A lot of games here are just UK copies with stickers.
There was a similar case on Judge Judy about people selling "photos" of products on eBay to purposely confusing buyers for a quick buck.
Pretty good job Yakumo! Really have an eye for detail.
Not even Forza 5 with the $60 DLC Lamborghini?
Well look at this way Yak, he got a free porn DVD :p
Colour me jelly.
There was one McDonalds I know in my city that had Nintendo banners on the front fence. Never went in there though :(
That's so confusing... So retail kits are developer kits, but you still need developer kits.
Funny enough, Cash Converters had a bootleg for $40 right next to a genuine one for $40. So even stores price them crazy. If the OP is lucky enough, they might find them at garage sales for $10 each.
So I take it you just want the cart only, not everything else?
I'd rather play on a TV too...
Understandable. I wasn't actually sure how you could balance work, and your family with all the orders. I found selling a new items at once on eBay to different buyers difficult.
E3 is always about lies anyway. Not sure how GT6 is until I play it, hope they fixed the sense of speed and added more interior views.
That's awesome packaging, sadly shortlived though...
It wasn't really released again, it was just removed once it hit Platinum.
San Andreas got removed from stores months and months after release, so saying that the Blacklabel version is rare is an overstatement.
I've seen Manhunt around here and there, you will most...
Picked this up last week :)
Many people who paid in full missed out, the stores that held these over ordered. So I rushed in to grab it. Glad I did :)
I had a bitcoin miner virus on my PC a while back, I guess bitcoins were nearly just as good as real money :P
Yep, just like most "activated" products there are usually patches, hacks or cracks. It just takes someone with the motivation to do so.
XBOX drives had the same issues with disc read errors. Since the lasers were up most crap. My uncle's XBOX laser died from light use, and even after repair it died again.
I never had problems with my Arcade model actually, but many people I knew did with their 360s. The worst part about 360's durability was the battery packs, they randomly loose power if not used for...
Also, one of the best online stores ran by a guy named Yakumo stopped trading. I miss your Saturn store :( many titles I couldn't get or were expensive on eBay I was able to buy from you.
Look out of a v1.1 system, they seem to be the best out of all of them personally, after owning every version. Keep a note what Borman said pretty much nails it too.
The switch is an easy fix, just remove the faceplate, take the shiny part off the faceplate and pop out the front panel PCB. The grey buttons should be able to be poked through from the front. Clean...
I couldn't afford Nintendo 64 games, after a while since a lot of them now are way over $200. The same goes for 90s toys as well, it's just the 90s generation getting older and wanting stuff they...
Call Sony, and they'll be more than overly happy to send you one, free of charge.
This shouldn't of even been released, even as an option. Videos are so low quality, and look like they a 56k stream. There's an option for HQ video, and there's no difference whatsoever, has anyone...
Use the hotswap method, and this will reset the clock errors and what not.
So basically this was like the Wii U debug menu that popped up and nothing can be done? It was probably instantly patched, and was told to some indie developer who got drunk and told everyone else :P
Only warning I give softmod to TSOP users is: you might boot to a black screen after the bootup animation. This is only because softmods work differently when booting a custom dashboard, this can...
My system does the same shit. I'm sure it's basically dead, my unit was working fine after one day I got no video. So I tried other cables, cleaned the system out, tried another 64, still nothing....
Just like last generation, I'll be getting both systems. For now I'll wait for the XBOX 360 and PS3 shit to become an all-time market low and mod the systems, then play games I missed out on during...
Mannnn, quality control is lacking badly now. Confidential discs being left in retail systems?
I would do what Kev said, I'd love a white XBOX ONE.
"limited edition" with a small logo on it. Damn I hate these type of "limited editions". Good collectors item though.
Don't burn Kameo to a disc, it's meant to be played from the Hard Disk. It does work from DVD but you'll get problems...
It's odd because I want an active life but don't have it. I understand though since most of you just want more leisure time than anything after working constantly.
I felt the same way with the Wii, bought it on launch and only owned Excite Truck for years before any games that caught my attention got released... Ahhh I think I'll get my PS4 when Carmageddon...
I'll trade a Weedle for it.
Title: Daddy schedule :P
My day usually consists of:
Play a game for the afternoon
Play a game for the evening
It really doesn't feel that long ago :/
LOL, that made me laugh so much.
You may not consider yourself successful, but if you ask me bud you're doing bloody well. :)
Australia all round cost of living is stupid, shops are...
Other's contacts, then there's this very sales section on this site.
XBOX v1.0 they just took the GPU fan away... FIXED lol, not really. All these systems after the 128-bit gen, have been horrible.
My girlfriend is rushing out to get her PS4 when the stores open,...
I believe the digitizer and glass is one unit like the iPhones. It should be easy to just find a replacement kit on eBay and follow a tutorial. If not, best to pay for a service...
If you get annoying "pop" sounds when saying words that start or end with "P" wrap a a cloth around the mic. That should help ;)
You can also softmod before you TSOP but if you don't want to. Just use a softmod guide either mine or another option and use EVOX to flash a 256k BIOS of your choice. Remember, bridging the points...
I know I'm not the only one man, it's just it seems this generation has been the most difficult. I've spoken to parents with kids my age, a lot of them have law education and other high end paper but...
If it doesn't flash your BIOS on the TSOP, then your points are not bridged correctly. EVOX will always say your TSOP chip is "WINDBOND" by default. Just double check your points, chuck a bios.bin in...
Always use PSN cards, never link debit cards to these type of companies, their security is shit. Only company that has mine is Nintendo but I never keep any money in that account anyway :P
More alive than usual!
I honestly don't understand how I can be "not the right person for the job" when I get wrong orders all the time, I think they want shit for brains employees.
Well yes, but you don't need Hexen if you've softmodded already... You just need EvoX dashboard as an app ;)
I know this maybe wrong of me to do, but I would of given you the finger in real life if you said that to my face. When I tell others I can't get a job they say "Have you tried the supermarket, or Mc...
It's this country also RJ, everything is fucked over people losing work left and right. Xeauron must of been watching me, but exercising or going to the gym and setting a goal works, I forget how...
Then that's the tHc dash which uses the original dash's files. I probably wouldn't go down this route on a softmod.
For the xboxdashboard skins, you can find the stock looking dash by installing a dashboard called tHc and can be found at eurasia. The stock dashboard skins look crap to be honest. So go with tHc...
I'm loving the changes Kev, keep on going!
So recently it's hit me, everyone I used to speak to on a daily bases have become somewhat less friends. I attempt to make contact with them every few days for a quick exchange of updates, but I get...
Recently with GTA V, been playing it so much and well I spent around 8-10 hours playing it straight. My eyes were bloodshot, pretty sure people thought I was doing drugs :P
Pretty much said it man. Microtransactions even happening in titles like GTA it's a horrible turn, and oh day one DLC too. A lot of this industry is a joke.
Well done idiot, the DVD movie will fool no one.
Pisses me off too, but then again users who do make threads with these titles get a whipping by the community and makes them look like tools.
Happens to the most of us.
Yeah exactly bro, I'm not very good at soldering either, but I've custom modded XBOXes, a Saturn, repaired a few gameboy games for friends. It's all a matter of over thinking it, just take your time...
Hmmm, well modchips for 1.6 are a 1 wire install, very little could go wrong. Seems like Chimp is your option though.
Nope 1.6 to 1.6b.
To answer the OP. You're best to use XBOXHDM to lock the drive to the new XBOX, or just install a modchip there's really no other way unless you want to mess around with chimp.
This is great for all those HL fans, I never really got into HL though, not sure what I'm not seeing... Although I like the game based off it's engine "SiN"
I never need to soak them in water lol
The rubber top on my controller has oiled or the glue has oozed out over the top of it. Need to replace the sticks...
Nah, that's just your dodgy controller.
I do have the hardware as well. I did a video on it a while back, but it was a bad video :p
I agree, usually prototypes look cooler than the final product but it was probably a cost cut.
Should read through the Archive http://xboxarchive.co.uk/doku.php?id=dakota:start
I was usually considering these, but seems like they have a container full or something...
It does still boot, it works in conjunction with the Game Doctor by Venus.
I have that copy program you're talking about TriMesh :)
This is the solution, there's too much fucking around to get it to work any other way. Maybe a cool thing to see working but I doubt it's worth all the time and effort.
Pretty much it, however some take in lamps and so on :/
Soniq TVs sold in Australia have Samsung panels in them. Think most panels are Samsung :P
I'm always scared to work on TVs. CRTs make me run away...
You only need a small amount of oil, not dump the whole tin on it...
XBOX stuff is priced like that at the moment, however they are creeping up in price slowly with some titles. I get really annoyed with retail here it's ran by a bunch of dicks wearing tuxedos.
It doesn't support LINEOUT sadly, so I can't get replace with some stereo speakers. Has the coax connection or whatever the sound version of that is... Those speakers are expensive :(
Cooking oil can get it off pretty quick. However to get marker off anything I use eucalyptus oil.
Similar to Soniq JB Hi-Fi have, remotes are just crap. I hit mine with a PS3 controller and never worked after that. A $20 Logitech remote fixed that problem though. The TV it's self is 42" and looks...
Wear on the dukes are less known than the Controller S. Shit man, explain yourself better next time.
I have some PSUs, which version are you after?
You mean to tell me, those are not speakers?
