Question PAL Games

sponsored links

 
I am having an odd problem. I have already searched this forum and tried what others have suggested who have had similar problems. Nothing has worked.

I installed an Executer 3 modchip and everything seemed to be working perfectly until I tried to play a PAL game...any PAL game. When I attempt to launch any PAL game it appears to begin loading but kicks me back to the main Evolution X screen after a few seconds. I am using Quix to copy the extracted ISO to my Xbox HDD. I have tried almost all the settings I can within Xlive Config without luck. I have also redone the entire HDD using Slayers Auto Installer 2.6. I don't know what I could be missing. I am going to try a different TV tonight as a last resort.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks,

XBOX: Version 1.0
HDD: WD 250 GB
Chip: Executer 3
BIOS: 1959

simple

use a region switcher, it will let u swap between NTSC and PAL video modes

one program is called "enigmah video switcher/selector(i4get which)" google tht.

then burn the iso(or transfer files 2 xbox) and load on xbox then select PAL OR NTSC and run ur game

cheerz

Thanks for the reply. I have also tried using Enigmah's video switcher. All that winds up happening once I reboot is the screen scrolls by very quickly and it also becomes black and white. Trying it on another (1 year old) TV also did not help.

I also tried that. Same result, B & W and scrolling. I have also played around with the video modes (480 P...etc.), BIOS versions (currently 1959) and region settings. No luck. I am currently trying my third install. Although I am pretty sure that this is not a software issue but I am playing around with all possibilities. I'd like to believe that I am missing a setting somewhere but at this point it looks kind of hopeless.

Thanks again.

So I found out what the problem was. I had enabled parental controls prior to updating the box and completely forgotten about it. Once I disabled them through the MSDash everything worked perfectly. Thanks for all the help.
