This little file can nuke your MS Dashboard if your not too careful so in this thread we compose a list of all games that contain the Update.

Which games contain the update file that can Nuke my MS Dashboard If I have EvoX installed?

Whacked!
Splinter Cell
NBA 2K3
NFL Fever 2003


(to be continued.)

Am I correct in thinking if you have Evox2.5 w/ ybox hack, it won't kill your original dash?

Why did this thread die?
I have found this file (update.xbe) also on NFL2K3.
Does it only destroy your dashboard if it isn't the original ms dashboard?

MechAssault has the files: update.xbe
dashupdate.xbe
Are both of these files the ones I should be on the look at for? Or is it just the update.xbe file?
If the culprit file is removed, will the back-up ,then be safe, and will it be playable?
If the original game containing the bad file is played, will it also Nuke the dashboard, or does the nuking only happen with the back-up?
Thanx...

So how would one go about ensuring this never happens?

Just delete the update.xbe file?

YUP!

Remove the UPDATE.XBE. There are other files you can remove to protect yourself from this.

Do a search!

However.. simply having these UPDATe files still on your RETAIL GAMES, BACKUP GAMES on DISK, or BACKUPS on the HD will not screw you up!

Only activating the GO LIVE feature, or activating optional DOWNLOAD options like go online and get more MAPS, TEXTURES, etc. will cause you to ruin a standard install of EVOC on the C drive using older method of EVOX install.

These days.. Ideally.. you may want to consider new BIOS options.. like renamed DASHBOARDS, or F BOOT options. Both can help protect you from grief cause by accidental LIVE updates to dashboards.

For more info.. read OTHER FAQ's, and search on topics using the following terms..

LIVE
UPDATE

also read any guides and tutorials about BIOS upgrades., and EVOX installs to F drive!

Please.. no MORE replies to this thread in FAQ!
