Ok first off, thanks to the dude that found out about deleting video files smile.gif

Ok so....

1. IF you dont know what video format (normal or widescreen) your box runs at, check via the M$ dashboard.

2. FTP the files from the original game to your HDD

3. When you have all of the game files on your PC, go into the video folder (the one with all the BIK files inside it).

4. Now with the PAL version, there are the normal video files and ones with the _w prefix.
If your using widescreen video mode, delete all of the normal video files (back them up in case something goes wrong).
If your using normal video mode, delete all of the video files which have the _w prefix.

5. My box runs in normal mode, so i deleted the files with the _w prefix. The game works fine for me and i managed to complete it yesterday with my friend smile.gif.
After deleting the _w files, the game becomes roughly 4.3gb in size, and I would imagine the same if you delete the original files.



Hope this helps,
Peace!

I was thinking a different approach, re-authoring the .bik files and compressing them.

The PAL Region 4 version is 4.67 GB so I'm hoping to compress about 300mb or so. This way I should be able to keep BOTH normal and widescreen videos.

It's gonna take a few hours to do (even on a P4 3ghz w/ 1gb of RAM) but I'll run some tests and let you know how it goes...

Did you use the W files on the backup disk or the normal ones? Cause I burnt 2 copies, one with the w files and one with none. They both say my disk dirty. Help!

I've got the original disk of the Warriors (PAL) but I keep getting dirty disk errors, regardless of whether I run it directly from the disk or off the HDD. My PAL XBox has been modded and is currently running in NTSC HD WS. Could this be the problem? Most other games I have run in HD fine. Does anyone have a list of the file names I will need in order to play it in NTSC, HD and WS?
