Got a Weird One for Y'all

Recommended Posts

i bought some broken xbox's. one of them says it freezes after playing for a while. i booted it up and the date was 04/13/44. i changed the date and unplugged it for a while. i then plugged it back in and it had the 04/13/44 again. i have never heard of that being the xbox's default date and i'm guessing it has something to do with the problems that it is having. what the heck would cause one to act like that? it's a version 1.6.

edit: i think it's actually between a 1.2 and 1.5

OK I have about 9 xbox's.  I have taken the clock capacitor out of all the ones that are 1.0 - 1.5. 

Have I never looked or cared what date or time it is -- NO. Just wondering why you care?

because that suggests to me some type of hardware problem. how can u have 9 xbox's and not know the normal time that an xbox defaults to?

Mine all have unleashx dash with a custom skin, the skin doesn't show the time or date, so I have never seen it.

edit 2. i was wrong on edit 1.it is a 1.6.

The version 1.6 needs the clock cap in working order to function I would try a new clock cap and see how it goes from there.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

All my Xbox's are connected to the network and auto set the clock and even the ones I repair set the clock from the network.

      if u could put a setting in a mod menu to increase the deadzone for the controllers then that would be awesome. alot of games seem to have super low deadzones and it causes drift unless the controller is brand new.

      I'm not 100% sure where to put this, so I'll post it here. If it needs to be posted somewhere else, please let me know.
       
      I'm having this bizzare issue with Namco Museum (2001) where with some games, it will freeze upon, not entering, but exiting a game. This happens with Pole Position and Ms. Pacman. Not sure if it happens with Pac Attack or Pac Mania, I haven't unlocked those yet. For the affected games, it consistently freezes between pushing pause at the main menu of the loaded game, and after selecting exit from that pause menu. It locks the system to the point where it won't respond to the controller, but does allow for disc ejecting to the dashboard. The disc is a bit scratched, but it is in good condition, especially compared to my other games which have a LOT more damage than this copy, and have zero problems.
       
      My only idea as to what is going on here is those scratches somehow corrupted the protocol that the affected games use to exit to the main menu. Not sure if exiting mid game has the same effect.
      As I eluded to before, none of my other games have any issues loading or playing whatsoever. By that logic, I'm certain my disc drive works absolutely fine. It reads my other games and most of my CD's without any issues.
      Do you guys think I'm right in my assessment, or is there something else going on?
      I have filmed this issue and I will post it to my YouTube channel on about four days from this post, if all goes well. I will link it somehow if there's enough interest.
