Delete a Link To a Game Not On the Hard Drive From 'featured Games' In Origins Dashboard?

Recommended Posts

I bought a 500gb Xbox fully loaded with origins dashboard and games - one game (GTA San Andreas) appears on “featured games” but when I press A the console resets - how do I delete it from appearing in “Featured Games” - or could I add the game somehow as I have the disk?  Thanks

Is it a PAL console? There were known issues with the NTSC game being played from hdd. Is the game located anywhere else on your system? Does it show up under the Games menu?

If so have you tried running it from there? 

The solution back in the day involved changing settings in EVOX dash to make it work but as you are using Origins (which is XBMC i believe) those wont help you.

I have run this game and even modded versions of it from my hdd with no issues.

Yes - it’s a PAL console - I’ll check the drive tomorrow but the favorites folder is the only way to access it on the dashboard

the game isn't in your "games" tab?  it shouldnt be popping up in your featured area if it wasnt there, it needs the file structure to even pop up,

the game is probably in a directory such as F>games>GTA San Andreas

just FTP into your Xbox and delete the folder that contains the game, then it wont pop up anymore.

Thanks - any reason why the game doesn't work?  Thanks

The game could be missing files or it could need the PAL fix that I believe was needed to play the NTSC game on a pal Xbox. 

I have the fix files I will upload them for you here.

      Hey everyone,
      I started ripping my games to my HDD (stock) using DVD2Xbox and then FTPing them over to my PC. I ran into the first game in my library, though, that is too large to fit on the stock HDD (Jade Empire). I'm planning on upgrading the HDD at some point anyway, but for now I figured I would use the "Copy DVD/CD to Samba share" feature of DVD2Xbox so that I can just rip it over the network to my PC.
      I have created a shared folder on my Windows 10 PC and made sure all of the appropriate network sharing/permissions options are set. I updated the DVD2Xbox config XML with the shared folder information. When I try to begin ripping the disc, though, I receive an error: "ACL processing is not supported over SMB." I tried going to the DVD2Xbox settings and setting General/Enable ACL Processing to "No", but no luck.
      I have tried searching online for a solution to this for some time, but have only found a few relevant threads. Of course they all end with someone saying "I fixed it," but nothing else.
      Has anyone else encountered this issue? Is there a setting on my Xbox or PC that I need to change? Any help would be appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Patrick

      Hi
      Can someone with the 2TB origins HD share their F:\apps\XBMC\skin\xbox origins\720p\home.xml file? Thank you.
