  1. Hello friends I have bought a couple of faulty controllers off ebay to repair. The first one I succesfully replaced the sticks with XBOX360 ones, added pots and successfully calibrated precisely to the centre the sticks using XBCD from https://www.s-config.com/xbcd-original-xbox-controllers-win10/ The second controller when testing there is no "+" on the left stick (as attached). I've replaced the sticks, but its still the same. The controller had been opened so it could be a botched upgrade. The strange thing is I have searched Google for hours and I cannot find a single post with any type of controller with this issue! The traces look OK except a couple of pads on the 3 legged pot control. When soldering a new stick I quickly checked the traces to the soldered legs and I get continuity. I will investigate this further, but normally with botched upgrades you do get a signal with the "+" usually stuck on the edge of the square. Is there anything obvious I could check first? Thanks in advance
  2. Hello friends What's the easiest way to hide the applications menu so that the kids don't mess about with the apps? I did rename the "Apps" folder thinking if there was no apps then the menu wouldn't show but it still appears and (of course) says invalid path when selected. Thanks in advance
  3. Hello All I use extract-xiso.exe in Windows, just drag and drop the xiso onto the exe to extract the ISO to a folder named after the ISO file I do this on all the xiso images before I attempt to burn them. Cheers
  4. Thanks for your reply @KaosEngineer That image is from another thread here on ogxbox https://www.ogxbox.com/forums/index.php?/topic/195-questions-and-other-stuff/page/2/ posted by @XC-3730C After more Googling, I finally found it. If you search for "original xbox green backgrounds" you'll find the background image and I added it as the background on the root using up for view. No wonder I couldn't find it LOL! Cheers
  5. Hello All I've been looking for this theme for days.... I have seen it mentioned elsewhere but no link, only the posters.jpg. How do I get the green footer to appear? Is it in the Textures.xpr? I've lookd through it and can't find an image that looks like its this footer so I can replace it and repack my own XPR. Also, on the root menu I can only get flat jpg posters and when replacing with 3D png's in Textures.xpr its flattened to jpg. When I change the view to 3D I can't get the image to change to my png 3D covers. I've tried _Resources but thats ignored. Thanks in advance
  6. Hello Friends I'm configuring Ninja Ultimate and I wondered how I can update / add emulators to it. For example the PCSXbox reloaded uses hardware acceleration so I wanted to change use it instead. For example, I can see AtariXL.xbe and defaultAXL.xbe. I presume the latter is a shortcut to the former which is AtariXLbox modded for Coinops? OR, is this calling the XBE under my F:\Emulators folder I have been searching for days to try to find info and everything points to the PC versions these days. Thanks in advance
  7. @sweetdarkdestinyPDF viewer but this is a 15+ year old console! I'm currently looking at 720p patches and some are great and some not so and crash. I'm trying to re-introduce the XBOX to my 20's year old sons to show them that other than graphics (hence 720p patching) gameplay is what makes great game. Destroy all humans for the atmosphere and fun is my kind of game. Cheers
  8. @sweetdarkdestiny Thanks mate, I didn't think your installer disc could get any better! I forgot I had mentioned about the DGW not updating with DHCP main screen. I was using the ORIGINS image and wanted to convert it to XBMC4GAMERS so rather than transferring all the games to F & G again and wanting to remove all the softmod stuff I wondered how to achieve this. All I did was load your disc, saw the format C & E and then it reinstalled all the vital stuff to get it up and running again. Brilliant stuff!!!!! And I've got an OpenXenium to install, well because I can!! so you've added just what I need! I hope you're feeling much better now too. All the very best and stay safe AtariSoul
  9. Thanks @RetroEmulationNation @sweetdarkdestiny not as many as I thought I think I also read Monster Garage was too??? Stay safe
  10. Hello All I know there are some games like HP prisoner of Azkaban that won't work because of long file paths, etc. Does anyone know of a full list of games that don't work? I have read that you can use the ISO mounted on a virtual drive with softmod but my XBOX is hard modded so I'm not sure if this would work? thanks in advance AtariSoul
  11. Hello Everyone I have the XBOX Origins 2TB image. All my XBOXs are hardmodded and I want to use XBOX4GAMERS. I want to keep the games on the image to save time copying again. This image has NKPATHCER so am I right to assume its a softmod image? Is the uninstall option on the NKPATCHER menus suficient to remove the softod? I have FATXPLORER so my ultimate aim is to remove everything thats not essential and leave the games and COINOPS so I can start with a bare image and add what I want. Thanks in advance
  12. Yes take care and get better soon. Don't worry about the installer, the most important thing is you have taken the action to prevent the issue happening until you feel better. All the best. AtariSoul
  13. Thanks @SS_Dave I have the Xecuter 2.6 working I did solder to the d0 pad. Rather than try to wire in the pin header to the trace I fixed, I followed the trace to another location, carefully used a fibre glass pen to expose the round pad and soldered there. Thanks for your help as always Cheers AtariSoul
  14. Hello All I bought a faulty chipped 1.6 off of ebay. I removed the LPC rebuild board and I notice a pulled contact. I think I've managed to retrace it, I checked continuity and it was OK and it booted! See attached picture. I don't want to use the rebuild board but I am going to do a wire rebuild. There are lots of pcitures around with various wire rebuilds. Some use slightly different wiring and state a rebuild for Aladdin or Xenium. Are all rebuilds all the same for every modchip, so I can follow any of them? Also, I am quite nervous of trying this as it took a lot of patience to do the retrace. Should I use a glue gun or polyimide film tape to make sure the retrace doesn't come loose or am I tempting fate and should just leave it alone? Are there any points I could use instead? Thanks in advance AtariSoul
