I ripped L4D2 from a retail copy, and when i try to load it from xexloader or xexmenu, it does not work.
the game either freezes or displays this crazy checkerboard pattern on the tv.

The game plays fine when I play off the disc or when playing using the NXE game install.

I have tested on an XBR3 falcon and an XBR3 Xenon and both do not work.

anyone know how to fix this? getting up to switch games is the worst sad.gif

I have the exact same problem...
Left.4.Dead.2.XBOX360-MARVEL crashes/freezes on startup with black/pink checkerboard, anyone know why that might be? Trying to play it from a USB HDD through XexMenu 1.1...
Tried "Scrub" on the ISO, froze with black screen. Ran original iso through XEXtool 5.2 to try patching, froze with checkerboard. Going to look into Title Updates and the $systemupdate folder next...

This isn't a topic about piracy. I own the game on disc I just want to copy it to a USB hdd so I don't have to get up to switch games.

Try buying the game, it seems to work perfect to me....

Has anyone managed to get this sorted yet? Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 and The Orange Box don't seem to boot up for me but they boot up fine for my brother. I can't seem to figure it out.

I also cannot get L4D 1 or 2 to work on my console from USB or the internal HDD. The original discs work fine, but I get a black screen when the games load from hdd.

The only way I get both to work is to install on xbox internal hard drive thru nxe and then when the are installed,I run nxe2god and turn them into god games. They both work now only way i got them to work,I can now start them from nxe dash or from fsd.
Cheers
