Hi,

I'm trying to figure out why my games that were advertised as having widescreen options or 720P or 1080i options don't work on my xboxes. For years, I was going with softmodded xboxes that were done with SID 2.0.

the video options work beautifully for xbmc, unleashx, avalaunch, etc. just not in games. on one xbox, i'm using the Monster component cables. on another xbox, i'm using the microsoft component hd box. people were telling me i should be able to run some of my xbox games in 16:9 and some of them in 720p.

I did a lot of research in these and other forums and some other people said you have to set it in the original MS dash.

But I no longer have access to the original MS dash. When I go to the ms dash option in unleashX, it says the msdash.xbe is not available.

I then read that a newer version of unleashx would work so i updated to Unleashx V0.39.0528a Build 584. still no change in games like halo 2.

then i tried to use the latest AID v4.50 Final and removed the SID softmod and replaced it with the dual boot softmod > Hacked Dash / Softmod Menu > Standard for HD
i still can't boot into ms dash. the splash screens for unleashx and sid are new.

i got another ms dash from ms-dash-mik3h and put it in the apps folder. tried running it from the file explorer and got it to run. then tried running a game. still no change.

i have no clue what to do. can anyone help?

are you running a NTSC or PAL xbox??

Now don't shoot me down in flames here but im going way back in my brain to remember but im sure if you are running a PAL xbox you wont have any or many HD options..

I was running a few PAL boxes and found that if i used ENIGMAH Video convertor to switch it to NTSC i had lots more options (this was on the default dashboard not hacked).

anyway, just thought i would ask if its NTSC or PAL...

Sorry for the late reply but i would just personally ftp into the xbox and replace the dash manually if AID is having problems.. Maybe even try XBMC installer which is smaller and newer at the moment.

But worse case you could aways ftp into your xbox and replace your dashboard manually.. Im sure it is in AID if you open the iso and extract it!

hope ive been some help,

cheers,

Have you tried selecting unmount virtual C drive before you reinstall the softmod?

If you have a virtual C then you wont really make any changes with a reinstall.
