  1. This guy here? If so, awesome! https://www.xbox-hq.com/html/article3783.html
  2. Here goes @Ryzee119 again absolutely smashing the OG Xbox hardware scene. Thank you so much for your effort, dude!
  3. I gave this a shot, this mod is fantastic! A lot of really great quality of life updates here.
  4. I'll have to try this out, thanks!
  5. Has anyone given this a spin yet? The concept is neat, but the game itself is definitely rough and I can imagine this wouldn't have sold gangbusters if it got a full retail release. Either way, I'm all for this releasing! I love stories like this, reminds me of Geist Force finally releasing for the Dreamcast.
  6. I'll be switching over to MX-4 once I exhaust this AS5! I've heard great things about MX-4. AS5 isn't bad, it just does the job, and it does it well enough to last and not make the system hotter.
  7. I went through my stack of Xbox consoles recently to get them all cleaned up, modified, refurbished, and of course replaced the old thermal paste with new Arctic Silver 5. I was curious as to what average temperatures you all see on your consoles, and under what conditions? While going through so many consoles this week, I noticed my 1.6 consoles in general run a few degrees Celsius hotter than the rest of my consoles. In general under normal use and load I'll see my consoles hover at around 55-57°C, while as the 1.6 consoles I have run maybe 3-5°C hotter. Getting new thermal paste on could help a tiny bit, but it just seems these consoles want to run at the temperature they want to run at! The biggest difference I've seen is a 1.6 running hottest at 62°C after maybe 10-15 minutes of use, it probably could have gone higher but I turned it off. After a good cleaning and repasting, it didn't go over 60°C. The lowest I've seen while idling was maybe 42°C, surprisingly after keeping it on all night! To make sure the consoles are all good, I'll generally keep them on for a night to let FTP transfers finish up. I checked on one in the morning after being left in a cold room all night, and it was just coasting at a low 40ish. Although using it for a bit heated it right back up!
  8. Interesting project, what are your temps like now?
  9. True MsDash 2 Green looks awesome, thanks for the share!
  10. ImgBurn for burning, slowest speed possible. Normally that's anywhere from 2x-4x depending on the disc and burner. I've generally noticed that ironically enough, Sony discs work the best across my Xbox consoles! True Sony discs, not the rebranded CMC Magnetics discs which are labelled as Sony. The issue with that is you really can't walk into a store any buy them anymore. DVD-R selection in stores is limited enough as is due to optical burning media not selling nearly as much as it used to, and most branded media is just low quality rebranded stuff. I've personally lucked out occasionally finding spindles of deadstock, or barely used stock, of DVD-R discs at thrift shops.
  11. Awesome idea. I know many of these discs also had custom saves and such on them, so it would be cool to get a hold of those.
  12. I use it, it works well enough. I have noticed that it's a bit darker than what is intended, but you can bump up brightness. I've only had compatibility issues on my 128 MB RAM modded 1.4, and that's been known from the designers that 1.4 consoles could be hit or miss.
  13. Since your consoles are chipped you should be able to use standard desktop drive cloning software which will do a full bit by bit image of the drive, since the file format can't be natively recognized. In theory, using something such as HDD Raw Copy or using a cloning station should be no issue between drives of the same size. I've been able to fully set up and build out a drive to my liking on one hardmodded console, then take that drive out and drop it into another hardmodded console with no additional setup. Nothing console specific needs to be tied to the drives, so they should work as long as they're unlocked. If you choose to lock the drive you'll have to lock it onto the individual Xbox the drive will be plopped into.
  14. I appreciate the promo, but that tutorial won't answer OP's question OP - what you're looking for will be something like this. I believe I used this guide years ago, it is terribly outdated, requires a hard drive hotswap, and an old IDE PC.... But it will let you softmod without a game. https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-softmod-your-xbox...for-FREE/
