I just picked up an EMS Topgun II. Is anyone here familiar with it and able to give pointers? I’ve figured out how to work it and calibrate it. My biggest questions are how to do general navigation on Xbox and in CoinOps.
Id also like suggestions on good light gun games in both. I know about House of the Dead 3 and Silent Scope. I also have the Chihiro Virtua Cop and Ghost Squad
Hello, OG Xbox noob here.
I was wondering how expansions & DLC were handled on the OG Xbox since I don't have any on hand to mess around with. Stuff like the Halo 2 multiplayer map pack & the DOA 3 Booster disc. (those are the only two I know of that were released physically, if there are any others let me know.)
was it all just copied from the disc to the hard drive? If so was there any form of copy protection? If you have a modded console with games ripped to the hard drive do expansions still work properly?
Of the numerous aladdin chips i've installed into 1.6 xboxes, i have installed the pin header with pin 4 removed, rebuilt lpc, connected bt->gnd on chip, cut the lframe trace at the xyclops chip and ignored installing the d0->gnd wire. This has always worked fine for me.
Recently i have seen different and conflicting instructions on de-pinning the header. it was suggested to also remove pin 3 (lframe), 6 (5v) and 12 (gnd).
I'm wondering what the benefit is and whether i need to start doing it this way?
I'm presuming pin 6 has been left out so standby power isn't lighting the led, and pin 3 to disable lframe without cutting the trace? why remove the second gnd (pin 12) though?
Just wondering what the consensus was on this, is this a better way to do it, is my usual way now incorrect??
Figured it was time to ask the experts!
