Not sure whether this is the best place to post this, but hey.

Just got my first HD set, and my component cables and the such, though I have a PAL Xbox. I'd just like to know what I have to do to get 480p and 720p enabled on my Xbox, and whether a list of games that support those modes is available anywhere?

Also, do I need NTSC versions of 480p/720p compatible games in order for those modes to work? Most of mine are NTSC but it'd be irritating to have to replace the PAL ones.

P.S. Also, I know this is an XBOX forum, but was wondering about 480p on my PAL PS2. (I'm not sure but I don't think it supports 720p). The PS2 has a chip, and the one game I'd mainly like to play is Soul Calibur 2 with progressive scan. I know you have to push [triangle] and [cross] simultaneously when booting it, though not sure whether my PAL PS2 supports it.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks forahobby! Sweet, a link in one of the tutorials:

http://hdgames.net/

Is exactly what I was asking for. Very Happy

Heh, reading on that site a few people have complained so much about lack of progressive scan to the point of returning a game. Shocked Ridiculous.

Anyways, thanks for the help!

EDIT: Yeah, all PAL users need to do is change to NTSC using that Enigmah tool, then alter the option in the MSDash once your component cable is plugged in.

PS2 users should be fine in 480p as long as the game supports it. Irritatingly enough, all of the prettiest games on the console lack it. Apart from Gran Turismo 4. Impressively, it has 1080i support. Kickass.
