i read that in order to play xbox live some games need that you will download an update for them, my question is if i dont play xbox live at all do i still need to download the update just to play offline? and if i dont want to use xbox live atall do i still need to do some updates (games,hardware), or all the updates are just for xbox live users?

thanks!

So if i got a modchip or firmware, and i dont connect to xbox-live, and when i play a game offline and he tells me that i need to update it, so if i update it from the cd hes this the same update as the xbox live? and will i have any prob with my xbox becuse i have a modchip or firmware?
plus one last question i heard ppl download the fall update and that has killed thier xbox and every 10 min it just hang, so if i dont have xbox live do i need to install the fall update or this is just for ppl who play xbox live games?

thanks thats all i need to know hope you guys can help me!

microsoft know, they have a free phone number to!

i suggest readin the topics and making your own mind up

people could tell you anything and you would believe it, not saying thier information wouldn't be correct or anything, it is better to read yourself and make your own decisions on things

hangon!

so how would people be able to answer your questions, if there is no info out there to be found?

the reason people know the answers is because they have researched and spent time looking for the answers sleeping.gif

if you don't install the fall update, nothing will happen at the moment

QUOTE
2) if i dont use xbox-live do i still need to install the fall update? and if yes than how?


at some point games will have the fall update installed on it, and probably will not run the game until you run the update

QUOTE
3) does the fall update concern only the xbox live users?


at the moment yes, other than a few features, like 1080 HD

QUOTE
4) if i only going to play beckups games from orignals copies and not use xbox live whould i still need to update my xbox with the fall updade?


at some point games might have it on, but atm no games have it on

The fall update is a must to connect to Xbox live. If you don't get it, you can't get on live

QUOTE

I think Microsoft will not take a chance of doing screwy things related to firmware on a game disk. If they were to mess that up like they did the fall update, then there would have to be a recall. The updates that have been on game disks have not been the full dash updates, as the dash versions have not been the same after the game disk update.

QUOTE


3) does the fall update concern only the xbox live users?


I am sure parts of the fall update will be included on the game CD Nobody really knows for sure, but I think Microsoft will not mess around on the game disks. The Publishers may implement stronger security for their own games.

If you are not going on Xbox Live, and you don't care about the new features, don't connect to live and you won't get the update except if you want to play a game that makes you do the update and you accept the update. Again, I doubt this will be the full update, that is just too risky for Microsoft to do IMHO.

5) the fall update coused trouble to both non mode xbox and to the moded xbox right? and do microsoft going to fix it?


Most of these questions you could have answered by just reading. This question has been asked and answered a lot. The update broke Xboxes that did not have the previous update already before downloading the fall update. Microsoft will fix this of course. The update also broke Xboxes that showed a "down grade" path for their DVD firmware. So if a person had ms28 during the last update, and now has ms25...then the dash would not boot. There is much speculation, and people have reported different scenarios. You have to understand there is a certain amount of risk in hacking a firmware. "Backing up" games is a really thin excuse for people to take all of the risk of running modified firmware.
