maybe by dvd bios or some ic in mother board , but i was thinking about the .xex and the files in the dvd
so there is region free and locked regions games , so the region is determend by the game or by the files in the dvd .
so one of the games i have if fifa wrold cup to germany and i fount a text file called (version.txt) and .ini called (locale.ini)
the text file containe : 83078NTSC_EnEs
the ini file containe :
DEFAULT_LANGUAGE = eng,us
AVAILABLE_LANG_1 = eng,us
AVAILABLE_LANG_2 = spa,mx
so thats make me sure that 80% that the dvd is controlling the region
what im thinking of is to have 2 version of the same game example : fifa ntsc / fifa pal ... and to be region locked
open .xex by editor and compare the files ( i tried to use the microsoft express studio beta ) told me to change editor
after finding the controlling command for the region we can fined a way to releas patches for ntsc and pal ...
and it will be alot easier than finding a way to make the 360 hardware region free
my problem is that my comuter is a bit old and i dont have a pal version of fifa
any recomindation of what editor can be used for .xex
if any body can help with this it will be great
