Debug Software Bug
I recently acquired an old debug Xbox. It's actually in great condition (intact seals, no physical problems, etc), and runs. It has the usual XDK apps (Dolphin, Controller, Audio), and a debug version of the game "007: From Russia With Love" on it.
007 has three bootable modes on it. "QA", "TM" and just the raw XBE file.
My issue is I can't actually get the game to run correctly.
When I select the XBE file, I get the Debugger menu and have access to this:
When I select any option (to actually load a level), it enters a Debugger screen:
Then just kind of fails.
When I try and load up "TM", I just get kicked back to the XDK with a warning saying "The Disk is either Dirty or Damaged" (I hope it doesn't mean the hard drive)
When I load up "QA" I can actually get into the game's menu. The game goes through the opening movie, but the second I can actually control Bond, it instantly freezes. This is all I've been able to see:
My question is, does anyone have any tips, or solutions for trying to get the game to run normally? Or did I miss something in the Debug menu to actually load up a stage? You know, just general trouble-shooting, in trying to get this game to work. Thanks.
Oh, and if you want to see some pics of the system (about 31 or so), you can check it out here if you're curious. Nothing new for most of the people on this board, but still fun to see. I got it for around 130$.
Have you tried pressing a to continue or y to skip on the debugger, just checking, im sure you have.
Also, im less clued up on xb1 debug kits than I am 360 dev kits, but try changing the consoles region if you can, sometimes helps for me when I boot a game.
First thing I would do is back it up, just in case.
Second thing, load up Xbox Watson on a connected PC and see what errors are popping up, and skip them if you can.
When I select the first one? Yeah. It hits a loading screen for the game, from which there is no escape. It just repeats forever, until I reset the system.
I'd recommend backing it up first.
(Personally, I'm also highly interested in an upload of that. Games with debug symbols are a great source of information for emu devs.)
First, you should set a better ip, the game might just crash because of networking issues.
Eitherway you should try connecting with a debugger. Especially the "QA" mode could be a simple spinlock waiting for a debugger.
//Edit: Try to look for devtools on the hdd too, there might be a tool to use with port 5610 - if you can't find anything try connecting with netcat for example.
