Hey all, not sure if this is specifically an EvoX issue, but can anyone help me out with aspect ratio wierdness?

I've got a soft modded xbox - system is in PAL, running EvoX and XBMC. Connected to a projector via S-Video.

I recently got my hands on some NTSC (US) games. Whether I set the games to launch in PAL, NTSC-M or NTSC-J via both EvoX and XBMC, the games will launch, and for example with Madden 2009 will look perfect on the initial EA logo, then a splash screen shows up with some loading... text over the top. Once the load finishes, BAM, aspect ratio is destroyed, it squashes everything horizontally so I end up with a bunch of beanpole looking football players... doing my head in... any tips would be awesome, Thanks!~

Have you enabled widescreen in MS Dash? Did you bypass virtual eeprom when you enabled widescreen?

I'm actually struggling to get back to the MS Dash, do I have any other options?

Not really. You need MS Dash to change video modes. If your current softmod doesn't support MS Dash then you'll need to update your softmod to a newer one that does. Depending on which softmod you used originally you can use CASH, or Frosty's + CASH.

Heimdall can I do any of this without the use of a CD burner? See http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=692047 for the stupid reason behind my question...
