Hey all.

I just copied Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas over to my xbox, but there is a slight problem. When I run it from the games menu, I see the defaut Loading screen that is shown when a game is loading, but it stays for a while, then just fades into the dashboard (what shows when the Xbox starts up).

Now, I'm not very smart when it comes to modding stuff [ I bought mine pre-modded], but there may be a correlation with 3 other problems;

1. One time, I started my xbox, and it wanted me to flash the Bios (o_O)? So I took it to a friend's house, and we found that my default.xbe was only 1/10 of what it is supposed to be. We replaced it with his, and everythign worked.

[The next two problems started yesterday]

2. I have my Xbox connected to my network (who doesn't? tongue.gif ). I was able to copy files too and from my xbox until today. I started it, and the IP address read 0.0.0.0, and beside "type", it was blank. It still showed that a network cable was plugged in though, (o_O).

3. For some reason, Xbox Media Center stopped working at the same time as the IP problem. When I load Xbox Media Center from the "apps" menu, it shows the standard loading screen, but then the screen goes all black. I then have to re-start, my xbox.


I've been considering backing up all of my games, formatting my hard-drive, and reloading everything, but that will take a while. In the meantime, I would like to get these all fixed.

If you have a solution for any of these problems, please PM me, or post a reply here.

Thanks

here is you're ip address solution
Make sure you're x-box is off
Go to start menu on your computer
Go to run and type cmd
Them input this:
ipconfig/release
press enter
should say IP address released successfully (or something like it)
then type:
ipconfig/renew
then turn on your X-Box and possibly reboot your computer

This should do it
as for the game not loading ask darkblizzard
he had the same problem he can help you

Have the exact same problem with my game as well. I copied the X-box Gta San Andreas game to my x-box hard drive. When I try and load the game from the game menu it says "loading" for a few seconds then fades into the default dash, never actually loading the game. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

try using xcommander, go into the game dir and run default.xbe
See if you can run it this way

Certain torrent sites have a fixed default.xbe. So it's out there for you to find.

Is this "TRS" something you can turn off with your controller in standard dashboard settings? Or something you have to access with your pc to x-box program? I looked araound in the dashboard settings display and couldnt find anything titled "TRS".

Turns out my "TSR" was already turned off.. it didn't launch the game before with it turned off so I thought id try turning it on and giving that a go. Went into my game launcher and tried booting it up but it just froze on the loading screen. So I tried turning the TSR off once again, saving, rebooting.. same thing. Just goes to the loading screen then fades into the default dashboard after trying to boot the game up.

Applies to EvoX dash users only. As TSR is an evox trainer function.
There are other reasons why it would not boot, again, oddly, it only affects some titles.
If you are an EvoX user, thats the main cause of the problem, so step one would be to do that. For other dash users, the causes can be cache related, OXM demo disc saves, and foregin m$ file saves such as dvd2xbox, lastly, it may be the clock being set incorrectly.

1) Clear the cache in E:/cache and x, y and z partitions.

2) Delete any OXM disc saves, and foreign m$ file saves, such as dvd2xbox

3) Set your clock

IGR can sometimes throw it off too, so if all of the above fail to work, try turning that off.

ohh well a trainer for SA seems pointless, so that's disabled and it's not working?

Yeah. I am currently running the Evox dash and my TSR is turned off. Still only fades into the default dashboard when I try and load the game.
