can't change game region from region 2 (japan)


Recommended Posts

Sounds like a language settings issue rather than a console region one.

There may be other ways but hopefully with UnleashX you will have a main menu MS dashboard option that works. If you do then going into the settings and changing the language support should fix the problem.

using the pal ntsc changer 

The System > Settings > Video Display page's settings are only for the UnleashX dashboard.  To change the console's region, you will need to use ConfigMagic to edit the configuration EEPROM's content.  I'm not exactly sure how you change the region though.  On my NTSC North America (US) console, I see the value:

  •  NTSC, Region 1

I was expecting to press a button to cycle through all of the available options to change this setting instead of heaving to key in the value for the Video & XBE Region.

How is you rconsole modded: softmod or hard mod? 

Which particular softmod package or modified Xbox BIOS is installed?


Edit: Once modded, the console should actually be region free.  If you games are displaying Japanese text, go into the stock MS dashboard to change the Language setting.
