Got my copy of Ninja Gaiden yesterday (great game BTW!) and after a few hours solo play, not having read the manual as usual, clicked on Master Ninja Tournament. I assumed this might give muti-player options as well as MS Live etc.
To my horror, the MS Live updating screen came straight on with "updating yr software"!
(My Xbox is connected to a router for mainly XBMC purposes - MS Live is not even available where I live!! huh.gif ) There were no "options" screens at all.
Of course, I had no choice but to let it finish.rather than stop it and risk corruption. There was NO interim warning before this update started which really surprised me.
I had read *somewhere* that these new kernel versions (K: 1.00.5659.03) could affect Evox? Any info on this?
Mercifully my Xbox seems AOK, and all games and apps work as before but it was a shock nonetheless as I always avoid clicking MS Live for obvious reasons
wink.gif
Anyone have any more info, any other games that do this? And I thought you should know this before any other newbs give themselves unpleasant surprises.
Thanks.

Thanks, but I have got X2 4981.06 as my BIOS. And it certainly doesn't prevent updating - I think it just prevents you logging in.

Thanks! Of course I assumed it was from Live due to the logo and appearance. It may well have been fron the disc. Still don't like "updates" without warning tho' rolleyes.gif

its just a xbox live dashboard update, nothing to worry about but it can rename your dashboards or something like that, but if everything is working fine you should be good, all it does is update the xlive dashboard, nothing else that i know about
