Help Needed On Several Post-Softmod Issues.

Recommended Posts

Hello, long-time Xbox user here, and you may recognize my username from many other forums.  I softmodded my console ages ago using SID 5.1.2.  Recently I wanted to try it out on Xlink Kai, but I couldn't join any games in Halo or Halo 2.  When I launch Halo, I get an orange ring for 15 seconds before the menu arrives.  My profile is no longer there.  Halo 2 tells me the DLC is damaged.  Strange.  So based on a few guys in the Xlink lobby suggestion, I went and used Rocky5's soft mod Quick Upgrade, which seemed to work.  I had to fix a few things to restore the UnleashX dashboard skin I was using before.  Anyway, I'm still having the same issues with the Halo games. 

1. First question, why would I be unable to join System Link rooms?  I verified Xlink can see my console fine.  I even tried to create a game but was told I appear to be "offline."

2. I'm wondering if the Game Saves are screwed up and causing the issues, but I don't know of any good Save Managers to try.  I attempted to open the MS Dashboard, but I get a Service Error page.  

3. The system is hooked up to a CRT in 480i, so I cannot load XBMC or XBMC4Gamers because they seem to be defaulting to 720p, and the picture is a scrambled mess.  How can I change that?

Update: I got the original MS Dash to work, but still would like to know if there's a Save Manager that is reliable I can use.  I deleted what I had on Halo, and the corrupted Halo 2 file.  However, Halo still loads screwed up.  I run the game disc, it says Loading... and then goes blank for like 20 seconds before I get the menu.  This IS a v1.6 console, not sure if there's some problem with Halo cutscenes though I've got it in 480i

      I have an 1T XBMC4GAMERS Original Xbox that is stuck on profiles after boot. I got it for a 6yr old and I believe he accidentally erased the original profile. I created a new profile and loaded it but it still returns to profiles after boot up where it used to go emulator menu. My email is stuckernicholas@protonmail.com. I am located in Missouri USA. If anyone can help me I have PayPal and am willing to Compensate. He really liked all his games.

      Hi people, welp I make a upsie in my Xbox trying run pgr2, first try copy several times the game over ftp but noting works so I think well maybe is the installation of dashboard so I put another installer in my x, I guess is evox someting, was a old dvd from 2010 or 2008 based on evolutionx dash and green radioactive backgroun, anyway the trouble is, boot to original dashboard but can't boot from DVD coz I flash the DVD check disable bios so cant make a cold boot from hexen dvd to try reflash the custom dash also can't boot from original game still saying the disk is not a original one, ohhh almost forgotten say my version, is a 1.6 board with aladdin xt2 plus, evox m8 firmware with dvd check disable, I guess I need make the hot swap between my pc and the Xbox hdd, ohhh alsothis console came with a bigger hdd When I bought it but that hdd is dead (head crash 😭 ) so I put another "working" IDE drive I had laying arround the house and say working coz this disk had some bad sectors is not like 1000 bad sector just 3 sectors and works fine until I made the stupid think but that's not the point, so my question is any possibility to recovery the dash without pc xbox hdd swap, is not a problem do that I had a old desktop pc with IDE interface but I can't find my cd with linux s.o and all the stuff for softmod I burn years ago (2006 or 2007 and still working that cd) or There is a better way to flash a custom dash and boot the hexen disk
