When I transfered the games to the hard drive they boot up back to the dashboard screen(mines is evox)

I tried XBMP as they still did not boot from there also. I only had one successful backup working of NBA streets 2 and Marvel Vs. Capcom 2.

Others such as metal gear and freedom fighters do not boot to the game.

what could the problem be? do i need a program to run games?

might be a media check issue, what bios are you using? and what program are you using to back them up to the HD?

Yeah, you probably want to update your bios. That one is a little old. It requires that you patch the media checks in your games. The newer bioses (like x4977 and up) will skip the media checks.

It depends on how your system is set up. Is it a TSOP flash, a chip? What version of xbox are you using?....

I dont know what TSOP is.
I have v1.1 xbox

I have XBMP running as the default dashboard, because I run clips and pics and I run evox as an application.

I got Xecuter2.4981.rar and it has the following files

4981.06_256k.bin
4981.67_256k.bin
make1mb.bat
X2_4981.nfo
x2_IGR_disabled

which one is for xbox v1.1? and do I have to make it into a 512kb file?

thanks

How is your xbox modded? Do you have a chip? If so, which one? The Xecuter2Pro uses a 1MB bios.

The TSOP is the chip inside your xbox that contains the original M$ bios. Many people just rewrite that chip with a new bios. (it's called flashing the TSOP) on a version 1.1 xbox your TSOP size is also 1MB.

But, if you have some other brand of chip, you have to find out what size bios to use on it.

whatever folder the xbe for evox is in make a folder called Bios, the put 4981.06_256k.bin in it, add the line

Item "Flash Bios",ID_Flash_Bios

to the menu section of evox (unless its there already) then just select that from your menu, select the bios and flash away, evox will resize the 256k to fit whatever chip your using (unless its an xbit, then you need to use the usb programmer)

use .06
and evox should look in C:/bios for the new bios. I don't know if that is something you can set in the Evox.ini or not....

Ok I tried the 4981.67 bios and YES:) it worked and brought back the folders that disappeared.

Now the thing is.

Its the same the games would not boot from the hard drive.
Its like that same old bios I was using.

I even tried WormS_beta2 that I downloaded from Xbins.
That just went back to the dashboard(Mines is XBMP and I use evox as an app).
