Hi - total newbie posting here so go easy on me..

Is there any reason why I shouldn't go for a ALX2+ R3 over an Executor 2.2? I basically want all the benefits of the latter chip but I really don't want any switches installed on my 'box.

Thanks all,

Schnide

I've very fussy about keeping the original aesthetic of my machines - for instance when I modded my Saturn I put the 50/60hz switch inside the machine via the battery compartment at the back so you couldn't see it.

Sad and pedantic but true!

Well I know that, but that's crazy.. say I regularly played an import game and a game on Live at the same time, it's just not practical..

ALX2+ R3 looks to be a very capable chip at a reasonable price. Plus, you will never have to deal with a bad flash.

Also, if you don't want any external switches, you could also look at the Chameleon (in mode 4) and the CleverMod.

Blimey this is all so confusing.. I've read all the newbie sections on here but I still don't know what's best for me.

I want to do all the usual things a 'hardcore' gamer but not techie would do - play emulators, imports and backups (and originals, before anyone starts) and I want to cover myself for future upgrades, hopefully pay as little as possible and not damage my Xbox. The latter point doesn't matter so much because if the best solution is a solder mod then I'd pay someone for installation.

This really is quite baffling - in short, what criteria do I have to go on when choosing a modchip?
