Not too sure where to put this question...
newayz i recently got a game called robot wars extreme destruction and it will load but without video, plays audio fine. I have my xbox swtup for autoswitching the regon mode but the video only comes in when i set the multi regon to pal then i get black and white video... All other pal games that i have gotten work just fine, confusing..

Xbox v1.0
Softmod - UnleashX

Thanks in advance! Very Happy

Well im NTSC but i think you need to set the video on PAL only. Multi-reigon doesn't work on some games for some reason.

EDIT: looked at your profile and saw it said you live in USA. The reason it wont play is because it wont work on multi reigion so you have to turn it to PAL cuz its a PAL game right? Well if it is, then your tv is NTSC so the display for PAL makes the color go to black and white.

Some games are just anal. They will only run fully properly if you're on a PAL box. There are two settings for NTSC as well, so if PAL isn't working, try the other NTSC setting.

You could also try launching it from a different dashboard with auto switch. For example, if you're using EvoX try XBMC, i've found XBMC's auto select to be much more accurate.
