Forgot to add, would it be a lot better if I copied Game>PC>FTP to XBOX?


I would like to first start off apologizing if any of the answers can be found easily using search, as I tried but did not find a solution.

My problem: Some games do not load from the hdd, they just go to a black screen.

What I have tried to correct this:

1)clear e/x/y/z caches

2)Transfer from xbox default.xbe files and try tp patch them on my PC with XBEMIDP2
(did npt patch)

3) Try a different loading program.

My friend last week modded my xbox.

When I recieved it, I loaded

007: Everything or Nothing
007: Agent under Fire
Mission Impossible: Operation Surma
Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay
Silent Hill 2
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
The Suffering
The Thing

I used Px HDD Loader v1.1a

When I tried to play the games, all of them worked except for:

007: Everything or Nothing
The Suffering

When I go to play these games I just get a black screen.

I then downloaded and installed DVD2XBOX .0.6.3

I then deleted 007: EoN and copied it again using DVD2XBOX

When I tried it this time, I got the same black screen.

I cleared all the caches everytime before I tried each game again

My settings in DVD2XBOX look fine, except for this

Enable AH deletion in ACL : No

I am not sure what it is.

This is my modchip

X-Ecuter 2.6 CE w/1.6 LPC Rebuild PCB

My HDD is a 160Gb unlockable

My evox.ini reads as so, I am not sure what version it is.

Both 007:EoN and The Suffering need patches to work from the hdd. EoN needs 2; TS needs 1. You have to look up and obtain those patches for those games to work properly.

You have to do a search for "usual places" in order to get them. We are not allowed to put any links online. The files you are looking for in terms of the patches are: default.xbe and driving.xbe for EoN and default.xbe for Suffering. There have been many posts about these games in the past. Just do a search for them.

I am also having trouble playing the suffering from hdd. I have tried one patch, but it didn't work. Its seems to be only for USA, NTSC. I am in europe so is there a different patch for PAL.
