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.

      Hi all, 
      Please let me know if I did something wrong with my post, I didn't see a ton of rules about classifieds.
      I don't have a ton of experience with the OG Xbox, most of my time was spent back in the day on Xbox 360 mods but I acquired and kept these consoles over time, but don't need to hold onto them anymore. I know this is also my first post, so If anyone wants feedback for my accounts from eBay, se7ensins, Reddit, tcgplayer, timestamped photos/videos/video chats, whatever, let me know.
      First off is this debug kit. I know nothing about it other than it was opened at some point. I fired it up the other day and it sounds like a fan bearing is going out on it. Only interesting thing on it was the audio tool pictured. I know nothing about where the console came from other than it has two tags saying "MS ASSET #" with two different different numbers. I heard from the previous owner it came out of a studio in the Redmond area. $250 + ship





       
      Crystal Xbox with converted 120v power supply and X3 modchip. The previous owner said this is a European console they imported, swapped the power supply, installed an X3 modchip, and a 320GB hard drive. I just reflashed it today with the X3 BIOS and Avalaunch is configured as the current launcher. $250 + ship
       


       
      Here are two prototype Krypton Xbox 360 Controllers I have too. Not OGxbox, but I thought they may be of interest to some. I'm thinking $85 for the 1st with the better label and $80 for the 2nd one in slightly more used shape.




      Payment through Paypal preferred. Goods & Services works best, but please add fees according to https://thefeecalculator.com/ if going that route.

      I have a Dev Kit and a Debug Kit, and I've decided that I don't really need both so I'm selling my Debug Kit. I plan on listing it on eBay, but wanted to give folks here a chance at it first in hopes it goes to a collector here that is looking for one.
      The labels on the bottom are punctured (by me during repair), but I can provide a replica label set for a small fee (labels will show console's actual serial number). When I acquired it, it was fragging. The HDD ended up being the culprit, so I replaced it with one from a stock Xbox and installed the XDK Dashboard. It currently boots up and runs just fine. I will include the original HDD that came with it in case you want to try to get it working. If you can fix the HDD, it may still have interesting stuff on it. On the HDD that is in it, I have it modded so that it will run retail games and apps (in addition to debug games).
      Aside from fixing it, I also cleaned the Xbox inside and out thoroughly. I used to repair game consoles for a living for a company for a few years, so rest assured it was well taken care of. The clock cap was leaking when I got it. I removed it, cleaned the residue and there don't seem to be any trace-rot symptoms. I can also install a new clock-cap if asked.
      The case is in great condition overall. There is a small crack on the back right next to the case screw (the top is the same as Halo/EU units and could be swapped if someone really wanted to). Can provide more photos if needed.
      I do not know which studio this Xbox came from. I purchased it from its original owner (according to the seller). When asked, here's what he said about the unit:
      The seller didn't respond to my questions later after I bought it. I recently reached back out to him to ask for more details. Will update this thread if he replies.
       
      I can provide seller references if needed. I also have a 100% reputation eBay seller account (same username) since 2009. You can find me in various og Xbox forums going back to xbox-scene.
      I have an idea of what I think this is worth but am looking for offers. Please no low-ball offers. I'm not looking to rip anyone off, but don't plan on undervaluing it either. If no reasonable offers come through, I'll be putting it up on eBay. Will be shipped via FedEx (unless otherwise arranged). Shipping from Arizona (USA) w/ tracking, insurance, and signature-required delivery. Will be packaged safely for transit. Payments through PayPal.
      Thanks!

      Hi
      Could someone write step by step how to install convert xbox retail to debug? MVG video is too chaotic for me.
