Posted 30 January 2004 - 06:15 AM
the game was working fine off the legal copy and i backed it up onto HDD. went to my friends house and lent him the game to show him how cool it was and what not. i came home, patched the game with DEXBE 0.5 uploaded the new default.xbe back onto the xbox. rebooted, launched the game... and it just stays at the evox logo. it wont even go back to the evox dashboard, it just stays at the logo indefinitely. its been on my TV for like 20 minutes now. i double checked the patching. looked fine, reuploaded to my xbox. tried again. still nothing, 3-4 power offs and powering back on. nothing. if anyone can help me get the game running tonight i wud really appreciate it. its 3:30 AM and im bored out of my mind and not going to sleep anytime soon.

dexbe was written in 2002. Back in the good days we were on xbe file format 1.0. Everything was simple. No media checks apart from beta chip at location 214 (hex).
Then things started to changed. The xbe header changed. The media checking changed and so on....
Now although dexbe and similar programs can analyse the new structure well.. When u edit an xbe in this way and save it... it reverts back to the old header format and the xbe becomes the old structure. This invalidates the way the xbe is analysed for kernal information on some programs/mods. Therefore you invalidated the header of the xbe... which causes it not to boot.
