I didn't exactly start to softmod an X-Box, but when reading the manual for SID 5.1, I stumble on the above quote. It hints that a "cheat device" is required (e.g. Action Replay), but I'm not sure how to interpret this as it doesn't outline in detail how to do it. For example,

What's a "desired program," and what game should I make a save file for?

Again, it's 5.11, the last version.

Thanks.

Action Replay is best. Watching this tutorial should clear things up for you

I can't download some of the files; VIP-restricted.

EDIT: Also, I am reluctant to use Action Replay. The SID 5.11 package came with the necessary files and gamesaves. Can't I just start from there?

Then use magic to get the saves on the mem card have fun

If you actualy read the sid5 manual watched the tutorial or done any kind of meaningful research you would know when it comes to a gamesave softmod youre only option is Action Replay or a similar program to get the saves to the xbox unless you have access to a modded xbox.

Check around im not blowing smoke up your ass, Ive been doing this a long time and i dont make those tuts cause they look nice, but becuse thats how its done. Action Replay is the best program available for the GS transfer which is why virtualy all softmod devs reccomend it

Your only other option is to use my PC based version of sid (SID5 Pimped) which will obviate the need for game saves but requires you to open your XBOX and perform a hotswap with the HDD to your PC

Are you flaming me?

I have READ the SID 5.11 manual, and countless times at that. If I didn't read it, I wouldn't have come to you for questions. If it did come with proper instructions on how to move the save, I wouldn't come back with the questions.

Digest what I just wrote before you try another snide attempt to flame me.

obviously not since SID does not include the programs necesary to transfer the files. Only programs currently available to transfer the exploit gamesaves are Action Reply, MegaX, Xplorer360 and Gameshark.

I dont flame I call it like I see it, and it says it right in every SID manual to use a program such as AR to transfer the saves you cant just plug a mem card or fatx formatted usb into a PC nd copy the sves it wont recognize it and tell you to format it before it will be usable.

Now if you want any help from this site I suggest you rethink your approach otherwise I can tell you you wont get far here. The majority of the support is done by me and like I said whats in the video tut is exctly how you need to do it thats why I linked you to it. If you dont want to get a VIP membership use Xplorer360 to transfer the saves but I'll warn you right now its buggy as hell and AR is far superior to it.


Chapter 5 of the SID manual

Copying the Gamesave to your Memory Card / USB Device
The most popular ways to install the Gamesave are the following:

Action Replay: US Official Website - European Official Website Mega X-Key: Official Website

Just a quick tip about memory cards, reports have come in about 3rd-party cards not working properly, you can check the Xbox-Hq Memory Card Database for more information. The most reliable way would be a Mega X-Key in my opinion, which uses the same format as Action Replay for Gamesave.

To copy the game save over to your device, these programs support the drag and drop feature just like Windows. So, open your desired program and then drag and drop the .zip or .gsx file to the memory card. In about half a minute or so it should be done.

There are 5 files in the SID package, you will need to transfer TWO of these to your Xbox (this is a little different from the older SID systems so please beware). You need the main installer file, and the Gamesave for the game you wish to use. Here’s what the files do:

SID5.Installer ................................................. <- The main Installer
SID5.Loader.007AUF ....................................... <- Loader for 007 Agent Under Fire
SID5.Loader.Mechassault ................................. <- Loader for Mechassault
SID5.Loader.SplinterCell.NTSC ......................... <- Loader for Splinter Cell (NTSC Version)
SID5.Loader.SplinterCell.PAL ............................ <- Loader for Splinter Cell (PAL Version)

You know I was gonna help you but since you obviously dont want to take advice from someone whos been doing this for years Im out. One of the other mods may help you but considering your attiude I doubt it

I know my bad, I shouldnt let things like this get to me.


@Frigem

If you see this and still need asistance and have Skype add me (SPPV1980) and after work I will personaly guide you through step by step. I thought I had made things pretty clear in the vid but I guess not clear enough, thats why I thought you had just ignored it and I responded the way I did. So my bad, youre welcome here and you dont need to worry I wont blow smoke up your ass, I know it can seem complicated and there is more to it then you were lead to belive by your reaing but fter you do it once it will seem like childs play
