Backing Up Using Dvd2xbox And Craxtion - Similar?
Posted 20 December 2003 - 05:29 AM
Please correct me in any wrong places:
Playing games off the HDD:
Use dvd2xbox. Once it copies all the files of the game, it patches automatically and then I can play.
Playing from DVD-R:
FTP the game to PC HDD. Use Craxtion to patch, and then use it to make and ISO image. Then burn.
Now my question is, using Craxtion method, once I've patched it using Craxtion (but not making it into an ISO image) would it work on the Xbox HDD if I FTP it to the Xbox HDD?
ie, if I FTP a Craxtion patched game to the Xbox would it work exactly the same as a dvd2xbox patched game? And vice-versa?
Because I've read another tutorial that it doesn't even need patching.
Just FTP from Xbox to PC HDD. And then when I want to play I just FTP the files from the PC HDD to the Xbox HDD. (Of course setting it up in Evox etc).
I don't need to do any patching whatsoever!
Does this work? Or am I getting confused as old games don't need patching or something??

Amped 2 - rip with DVD2Xbox; plays on HDD..... FTP to machine and burn - Dirty Disc Error
- rip game straight to PC no patching; run craxtion to iso; auto patch all xbe's burn works fine
Craxtion is a better program....
And I have an Executer 2.2Pro with latest Bios and it didnt bypass the media checks for me.... certain games that u would like to backup have a newer protection; which has been talked about more then enough on the forums...
my 2 cents

Guess I'll use Craxtion all the way.
Still gonna try dvd2xbox and ftp the files back and forth to see for myself. But thanks for the warning. :-)
