Okay I found a debug console in Toronto Ontario. The guy mentioned to me that it had Call of Cthulhu which is nowadays getting a little bit up there in value compared to other Xbox games. This post is more of a question I'm wondering if anybody has seen another different copy of Call of Cthulhu besides the retail disc game. For example Call of Cthulhu retail game size is 3.16 GB.... the version I found on this debug kit is 2.34 GB. There's a difference in size there. Not only that but once you enter the game and you select your level of difficulty it brings up a small screen on the right hand side overlaying the graphics the fonts are very hard to see and our kind of messy looking with underscores and lowercase letters. Very hard to see but this will allow you to pick a level in the game. I have confirmed this I've tried it. Just wondering if this game has ever been released before in the Xbox world or if this is a debug Edition Call of Cthulhu? Attached are some images of stage select as well as size on hard drive.... if anyone can confirm that they've seen this version or if they can confirm that they've never seen this version before would be appreciated. Thank you for reading

I'd rip it and upload it for sure. it is likely smaller than the retail because retail usually has a bunch of additional language packs added in so that they are only pressing one copy and region coding it during the press. that would be my first guess. the next is CoC might have 480p or 720p options (don't have my copy handy at the moment) and this might have just been a 480i copy

A while back i worked on getting the debug menu functions working on the retail build of this and while i was able to get some things going, there was a lot that i never could get to work. There is a test level and some other debug stuff that might work on this. This is def a nifty little piece of history.

      I have a broken debug kit Xbox that I'm hoping to salvage and get working again and could use some pointers. It starts to boot up but hangs at the X screen during bootup (no Microsoft logo).
      There is some trace-rot and corrosion present on the board, and I'm hoping it's not bad enough to be causing these issues. The clock capacitor was leaking but it was very minor.

      There's also a bodge-job done to the underside of the board, which I'm not sure what it does.

      The orange D0 wire was added by me. The thermal tape was there when I got it.
      The hard drive does not make any sound at all, so I hooked the HDD up to a PC and my PC couldn't read it (still no spin-up or reading sounds coming from the drive). I suspect that the drive may be broken. I swapped in a similar model HDD's logic board (first part of model was the same, last part was slightly different) and then the drive spun-up, but was clicking ('click of death' sound), but I'm not sure if this is from the drive being busted or from it being the wrong logic board.
      I burned 5849_Recovery to a disc, swapped in a different (unlocked) Xbox HDD and tried to boot from the disc and it hung at the same spot in the bootup process. I tried a different DVD drive too just in case. The fact that it's still misbehaving after taking out the supposedly-bad HDD makes me wonder if a BIOS flash went wrong. I have a copy of the debug BIOS, but no 1MB modchips on hand. I only have an Aladdin XT+2 and a DUO X2 Lite, neither of which can handle a 1MB BIOS. So I can get a better modchip and boot from that, but I'm not sure if that's even the problem.
      I've also tried swapping the power supply with the same one from a different Xbox to no avail.
      Any tips?

      Hey guys,
      So I have a project where I was able to come in possession of what im assuming to be a original Xbox test kit motherboard. The reason I say this is because it is an xbox motherboard with an MCPX X2 as appose to the X3 and yet it only has 64mb of ram soldered to it. It also looks like one of the previous owners tried to run Hexen and flash a retail bios on it since the solder points have been connected. Since (I'm assuming) it has a retail bios loaded on it it wont boot due to the lack of hidden boot sector in the X2. Ive finally fixed some OpenXeniums ive been working on so I have access to a couple modchips that can fit 1mb bioses in them. I am wondering, with the lack of 128mb of ram on the board, does anyone know if the development bioses will still boot to a screen showing something at least like the startup animation? I would like to see if the board is at least still functional with a proper bios and not completely nuked since it is currently in a state of FRAG that I hope is due to a retail BIOS being flashed on there. 
       
      Thanks
