Yeah I agree! Beamish, FO.
Firstly, two URLs are working perfectly at the moment - just checked myself and secondly, don't bitch and moan about a free service!

AAARG!

Alright, for the uninitiated, and want-to-know types... The main I've been 'gone' is that I'm in the Air Force, and occasionaly get to go 'do things' 'somewhere else'.

As for the two mirrors being down... I have no clue why, as all mirrors pull from the same database. On a similar note, I've had two or three offers for other mirrors, and I'll see if those offers are still valid, or see about getting a host of my own.

Anyways, I'm going to get to work on the site over my gladly accepted four day weekend and see if I can't get everything back up to speed.

As for the first post and it's crap-load of 'broken' links, I'm just going to link straight to the deadeye site for now.

Hehehe.. take a four day weekend... I like that...

On a similar note, two new mirrors.

http://rahszhul.xhce.com/
http://www.maverex.net/xbox/

As of right now, they still pull from that exact same database, but soon they will each be there very own complete site, so there will be less of a chance that all will be down at the same time.

Edit: and, for some strange reason, it looks like the two previous mirrors are working again... or maybe I just hallucinated that.

Man I had just closed the window, when I had to reopen it to reread this last url. For a minute I was thinking you had gotten iomega to be a mirror. First zip drives now this!

Ok great link i can delete the files wahoo. Now i want to take it a step further and actually understand what the hell im doing and how to delete the right files. Any one have a good website for a newb to start to understand.

Also I dont get how i can just delete a file. The program at one point has to call the file for a reason so what happends when the program trys and calls the file that got deleted? also they always say you can delete the dashupdate.xbe for xbox live wouldnt that prevent you from being able to play it online (via xbconnect or other programs like it)?

I also read something on relinking different video files. If anyone has a good website that they use/used please post up a link.

Thanks.

These are all questions I've answered many times before. But, I'm not totally against re-answering for the un-initiated. I mean reading through 850+ posts would be hell, right? ...right?


How to delete? If you store backups on your hard drive, and have FTP access to your xbox, deleting couldn't be easier. Just go to where you put the game, then go to the file/folder listed, slect it, delete it. Golden! (I, however, suggest backing up what you plan to delete just incase it doesn't work for you.)

If you have the .iso on your computer, then it's a case of extracting the contents to a folder on your PC, and going to the proper file/folder and delete it. Then you can re-iso the newly ripped game and burn it to disc, or transfer the game over to your xbox.

If you've already backed up your games to DVD-R or similar non-rewritable media... you're S.O.L.


Dependant on how the game was coded, deleting a file could cause prolems. However, I'd say 40% of the files I've listed are never called. Those being other languages, or videos encoded for a different region.

In the case of videos deleted that ARE called upon, like pre-game company logo videos... the game will call for the file, receive an error, but the coder's didn't error trap for this possibility and game moves on to the next step.


Anyways, xbox live... NO! Want detailed reasons why? Go to any one of my mirrors, find a game with xbox live deletions, and click on the header "Xbox Live" Mass info!

On a similar note, xbox live, and LAN are completely different code sets. (Remember X-Link and XBConnect make the internet look like a LAN to your xbox, not an xbox live clone.) So, removing xbox live content does not harm your backup, nor it's ability to play LAN based games.

first of all you can't play a backup on xbox live anyway, so dashupdate can be deleted.
the whole idea of it is that you are deleting files that the game doesn't use.

Yep dashupdate.xbe and update.xbe can be deleted in EVERY backup and not harm the backup in any way.

Yeah... you shouldn't have to bump the page though, b/c it used to be pinned... what happened to the pin? This is probably the longest thread in the history of message boards (don't quote me on that though), so obviously for historical reasons the pin should be reinstated.

Well, that's my $0.02 anyways. Take it or leave it.
