Hey, I bought SC:PT and love the game, especially multiplayer. I've played so many games online, however, I have to stop playing because I'm now in my summer home with no broadband. I'm really upset because I was looking forward to the two new maps that are gonna be released in a few days. I was wondering if it would be possible for my friend to send me a cd with the 2 maps and I be able to play them in the tutorial mode, so that I can explore the mall and bank and get used to the map so when I go home I will already know all the hidding places. I'm guessing the maps will be locked to one specific xbox, but will there be a way to resign them to a different EEPROM? I really don't want to wait 3 months to explore these new maps!! Thanks.

I am also looking for information on how to transfer premium content from 1 xbox to another, my friends and I play 4 player system link, and paying 20 bucks for 2 maps is kinda bull. I doubt it is just something you can copy from hard drive to hard drive, I'm sure m$ put some sort of lock or encryption on it, so you cannot transfer it. If anyone has looked into this please reply, I really want to play these maps!

wen u transfer the files theres always a risk of curruption which happened wen i was puttin old hdd stuff on a new one and many of the maps i downloaded were unplayable. ive never tried an xbox-xbox transfer so i wouldnt know. I thought the 2 maps were guna be like only 5 bucks together. sort of like the mechassault premium content downloads.

Well, just so there is no confusion, both maps come packaged for the price of $5.00. I said $20 because I would have to pay for it on each xbox. 4 xboxes multipled by 5 dollars is 20 bucks. I'm not interested in paying 15 extra dollars for content I already paid for.

I was looking around and asking questions at another forum, and was told that the maps would be hacked and released so they would work on any Xbox (just like the PGR2 booster maps) but they probably wouldn't work online. So it should be possible to play LAN games with these hacked maps, but not on Live.

XS is here to discuss hacking, not where or how to get such content other than Xbox Live. Thus, some posts have been deleted

Alright Guys,
I've just figured out how to copy the 2 new multiplayer maps, for all those, who didn't get it yet, I gonna explain it (it's very easy)

Requirement:

-The Game has to be on your HDD, otherwise it won't work

-the $c Folder from E:\TDATA\55530019\ is needed


Alright, here we go:

- open any FTP programm, load the $c folder from you xbox HDD onto you PC
HDD.
- now you take all files, that are in this folder, and copy/paste them onto (e.g.smile.gif
your second xbox, in the following game directory of Pandora Tomorrow:

GameDirectory(PandoraTomorrow)/system

- If you've just played SC2, delete the Cache on x,y,z partitions, restart and have
fun with your maps on systemlink smile.gif


Best wishes, Floo aka revello

Yes, x-s is not a place to trade copyrighted software souch as maps or any games or downloadable content. Now you can ask for specific question on how to make them work, where and how you get them it is not of anybodys buissiness and all you'll get is probably an erased post or your expulsion from the forum.

Check the RULES and respect them and everything should be fine.

rAph, I didn't think anyone had yet found a way to play the paris tracks from PGR2 on a different xbox without it crashing? The extra cars work fine, but not the maps.

Has someone found a way to do this now? Sorry about the OT post, feel free to PM me the answer.

Well, eventually I just caved in and purchased the maps for 3 of my boxes, and have one of them on my modded box, so I guess it's all good. Too bad you can't take the downloaded levels from one of the other boxes and make them work on the modded box, damn eeprom encryption.
