LOL! It should be the smallest game ever with those graphics. Thanks for the deletions.

Jurassic Park Operation Genesis NTSC

NO DELETIONS. Obviously the one listed is PAL or not NTSC(NA).

Game size is 339 MB.

PLEASE STATE WHAT REGION YOUR GAME DISC COMES FROM THAT YOU ARE REPORTING DELETIONS FOR. IT IS ON THE ORIGINAL GAME DISC. If you do not have this information, then you do not have an authentic retail disc and your information is not 100% reliable.

Rahz, may I suggest putting games with NO deletions in the same area as the games with deletions? It would be more convenient to have them all in one spot instead of searching the list, then searching the no-deletions list. If we have info for a game, let's put it in the alphabetical index and not discriminate based on whether there is a file to be deleted or not. Just a suggestion. It looks like there are only about 6 games on the website you have info for anyway.

Hey Angerwound!!!

How are you getting those numbers you report with your deletions? I'm guessing they help with ACL creation. If I don't have to install a program to get them, I'll start posting that info as well.

It should be NTSC if not noted. I deleted the files with no problems, and have deleted files from every game listed that I have with no problems. I'm guessing you are using an exploit? What games are you having problems with?

avp was the only game that didn't work, it came up with a dirty disk error, and it worked fine before i did this
all 39 of my other games worked fine
i'm thinking i accidently deleted a file that i wasn't supposed to, but i was really careful when i was doing all of this

Which game are you trying this on?

I was thinking about this just the other day and I think it's a good idea.

I'm not Angerwound, but you mean the hexadecimal ID numbers? If you use MXM as your dashboard, you can get that number by highlighing the game, pressing Y, then choosing Game Info (or something similar). On a PC, you can use dexbe (see xbox-scene tools download page) to find the ID. I'm sure there are other tools to do this, too.

From Arx Fatalis I deleted...

/MISC/LogoArkane.xmv
/MISC/LogoWizarBox.xmv

...and got a DDE.

Copied them back over and all was well. They should be marked as Replacement Files and not Unneeded Stuff in the guide.

Those deletions are for the NTSC (USA/CAN) version. They work just fine for me as long as I left the first logo file alone, which shouldn't be listed in the deletions. Check out my post about it earlier in the thread. I have loaded this game about 20 times or so and haven't had a problem. I have pretty much beat the game.

I didn't replace them. I simply deleted them. If you want to replace them, go ahead.

Anyone else want to verify these deletions don't work for your Region 1 game?

You could just leave the XMV files alone if they don't work for you. I don't think they saved but a MB or two when deleted.

The original post for that game is on page 24 of the thread.

I use Avaluanch to get the TitleID for games. Just go the games menu, hit start, and then XBE Properties. It will tell you all kinds of information such as Total Game Size.

Make sure your browser isn't caching the sites' contents. I looked on all three mirrors, and they each says 23 March.
