Running Fonts & Audio, this package/tutorial that contains the Catfish/MA fonts and the stable ST.DB audio file from Catfish/Morden.
NOTE: This is a simple FTP based package to installing what I call "The Best of Both Worlds" a way to run Fonts and Audio together using the most recent and most stable hacks. The original tutorial thread is HERE
You MAY wish to read this if you are using Mordens audio hack OR have MechAssault/007 I recommend using my original tutorial if you DO
For the rest of you.....
Before you start
If you are a noob, and want to know what the 2 exploits ARE and how they work, read this:
What are the Font and Audio Exploits?
Its a little bit of text I wrote to get you started...
AND, take a look at:
Checklists For Fonts/audio Exploits
Another cool guide with some info so you dont mess up..
Changing the files on your Xbox hard drive is dangerous and in some cases could lead to you totally messing up your games console, leaving you with a large unattractive paperweight!! Make sure you know what you are doing before attempting any of the following.
Ensure to back up your entire C drive as soon as you get FTP access to your xbox. Back it up to your PCs hard drive AND a CDROM just in case. You may need it at some point to "re-virginize" your xbox
What will I need?
- FTP access to your Xbox
- An FTP Client such as FlashFXP
- The mkjones-BOBW.zip file from Xbins
What will this do?
It will install The Catfish-MA fonts AND the hacked ST.DB audio file on your xbox. Then you can use a script that allows you to enable-disable the fonts.
So how does it work?
Once the Fonts are enabled the tab will say "PHOENIX" and you will be able to use Ripped Audio, also the activation is a simple one button press
Once the Fonts are disabled the tab will return to the original Xbox-live, but and you will NOT be able to use Ripped Audio etc. To enable the hack you need to do a key combo on your game pad that basically tries to copy a hacked Audio Soundtrack.
OK, Getting started.
Before you start read THIS and learn how to use xbins. Its basically an IRC channel/FTP site that has all the goods.
For information how to use Xbins click see this page:
Xbins contains the files that will allow you to get FTP access to your xbox, there are a few around and as long as you have either "Mech Assault" - "007: Agent Under Fire" or "Splinter Cell" you should be ok..
If you need to know MORE about how to get FTP access here are some tutorials:
- http://www.lanceande..._xbox_guide.pdf (Same as the other but in PDF)
You can FTP to your xbox using its IP address and "xbox" as username and password.
BACK UP YOUR C DRIVE
Now you have FTP access to your Xbox back up your entire C drive. Back it up to your PCs hard drive AND a CDROM just in case. You may need it at some point to "re-virginize" your xbox
!DO NOT MISS OUT THIS STEP!
!NO REALLY - DO NOT MISS OUT THIS STEP!
!It has got ME out of a few problem situations in the past!
With FTP access to your Xbox unzip the mkjones-BOBW.zip file.
The 2 folders we need are C and E.
Now, connect to your xbox through FTP, you should see a screen like this if using FlashFXP:
On the left are the 2 folders from the mkjones-BOBW.zip file, on the right is your xbox, cool
now, open the C folder on both the PC and the Xbox it should look like this:
Open the fonts folder on both sides:
On your xbox you will see 2 fonts named Xbox.xtf and Xbox Book.xtf, on your PC you should have 2 font files named bert.xtf and ernie.xtf. These are the wonderful Catfish/MA fonts
Now you have to re-name the fonts on your xbox to Xbox.bak and Xbox Book.bak like so:
Then upload the bert and ernie font files!
Congratulations, you have just installed the font hack! But we are not done just yet
Next, open the E folder on your PC and the E drive on your xbox, you should see this:
Now, simply upload the 'mxm' and 'PBL' folder to the xbox E drive, DO NOT copy the TDATA folder just yet:
OK, once you have 'mxm' and 'PBL' on the E drive, open up the TDATA folders on both sides:
On the xbox open the fffe0000 folder, do the same on your PC:
Notice how they both have a music folder, open this on both sides:
Now simply upload the st.hk file to this folder
And we are DONE!
Now, reboot your xbox without a game in the drive. Your xbox should boot and instead of the XBOX LIVE tab you will see PHOENIX press it! PBL 1.4.1 will load and then MXM!
From here you will see a folder called "Font/Audio Package" inside is the Font Hack Switch, this will turn OFF the font hack, test it now then reboot.
If it is all working XBOX LIVE should be back as normal, and you can boot MXM by pressing MUSIC and then:
If you did it right you should get to the "NAME SOUNDTRACK" screen and then BOOM! PBL-MXM will load
If you want to take your Xbox on holiday, i.e. it will be "without power" for a good few hours, then ENABLE the audio hack until you arrive and have power again.
No more worries about the clock loop.
You can use ripped music
Less tired fingers for gaming
Hope this helped some people. If it didn't, sorry
