Games Will Only Play At 480p
Posted 13 March 2012 - 12:32 AM
I understand that you have change the video settings in the MS dash. I have enabled 1080i in the MS dash and even after restarting the dash still shows the changes I made. The selectable video options in UnleashX also change according to the MS dash settings. In fact, after enabling 1080i in the MS dash, my tv shows it is receiving a 1080i input when I am at the UnleashX dash. However, as soon as I start up a game from my hard drive, then the video goes back to 480p.
After researching, it looks like this is a problem with not having the MS dash on my shadow c. Through the file manager I see an empty shadow c. If I launch the Ndure toolset I can see the real c has xboxdash.xbe and xb0xdash.xbe. I can access the dash by launching xb0xdash.exe or by starting the xbox by pressing the eject button. I cannot access the MS dash by selecting MS dashboard from Unleashx, it gives me the "Unable to launch "C:\xboxdash.xbe". File does not exist.".
Am I correct in assuming that my whole problem is because I don't have the MS dash on my shadow c so once the game launches it is not able to detect my video settings? Is the solution just to copy a 5960 MS dash to my shadow c? Can I simply copy xb0xdash.xbe to my shadow c and rename it xboxdash.xbe or do I have to find a clean 5960 dash online and put that in my shadow c?
Anyway, am I on the right track here? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Not to worry, just copy the complete 5960 dash (not just xboxdash.xbe, the whole thing) to the empty shadow C and you should be OK.
Now for the bad news - it will make no difference. Most games only play in 480p. It has nothing to do with the game not being able to read the video settings - the video settings are held in the eeprom, nothing to do with the MS Dash.

I'm guessing the shadow c has write access restrictions in place? Is there a way I can enable write access through the ndure toolset?

Alternatively you can use HeXEn (burned to DVD-R at 4x or slower) to do it for you - Option 188.8.131.52.

Tthank you guys so much for your help! I can't express how thankful I am!
I think I'm having a surround issue now though. I have enabled DD and DTS but UnleashX has the 5.1 surround option set to NO and I cannot change it. However, when I start a game my receiver is showing it is receiving a DD signal and after doing some grenade chucks and doing a 180, my speakers do sound like they are outputting sound in a 5.1 fashion but perhaps that isn't the best way to check. Also, I just tried putting in Burnout Revenge which according to hdgames.net supports DTS and my receiver is not showing it is receiving a DTS signal. What could be up?

I also tried dropping a blank text named eeprom_off.bin in E:\NPK11 and launching the MS dash from UnleashX. Again, the audio options were all enabled already. Disabled and re-enabled. Nothing changed.
So UnleashX is still stuck on 5.1 NO.

UnleashX is simply showing you what it thinks the audio mode is. It isn't involved at all when the game is running - like the video settings, every dash and game reads the settings from the eeprom. IIRC some games give you the option to change the audio settings, so that may be worth investigating.
