[*] Dont start threads in the newbies section called "N00b here" or "Total Newbie needs Help" or anything like that. If you want help sum up your problem in the title and people will be glad to help. If you dont people will just look at the thread and ignore it, but if they know the answer to what it says they will actually reply
[*] Posting a topic thread like "Need Help! Please!" will likely anger more people that it encourages them to come to your aid
[*] "build with MS SDK or MS XDK" means the software has been compiled with a MS compiler for xbox and can therefor NOT be distributed legally.
[*] "Where can I find Game X ?" Try amazon.com or your local software store
[*] "Why does the background suck on this forum?" because you're not smart enough to look in the control panel and change to another template
[*] "Will Xbox-Scene answer my support questions?" No , no and no! (sry ... but we really have no time for that)
[*] The transfer speed may change depending of your OS.
[*] Yes, partition F is the slowest partition of Xbox.
[*] Do not fill the drive E, you will not have space for your save-games!
[*] Do not touch in drive C files until you know what you are doing!
[*] Yes, you can use a head set in a Lan game, but only if the game support it.
[*] MOST LICENCED SODLERING PROFESSIONALS WILL NOT EVEN HAVE LUNCH WITH YOUR XBOX IN THE SAME ROOM!
This is true...I went to 2 cities to try to get my xbox modded...Cleveland and Columbus....searched 5 phone books...and at the end of the day went through 3 xboxs 3 walmarts and gave 7 handjobs...
[*] A blinking green LED while aligning the Matrix in mode 1 doesn't necessarily mean that the Matrix is aligned (it means that it is most likely aligned).
[*] A blinking red LED while aligning the Matrix in mode 1 doesn't necessarily mean that the Matrix is not aligned (it means that is is most likely not aligned).
[*] Alignment of the Matrix in mode 1 of a v1.1 Xbox is generally indicated by an initial flash of green followed by constant flashing red (upon a cold boot).
[*] Alignment of the Matrix in any version Xbox with the TSOP write-enable jumpers bridged is indicated by an initial flash of green followed by constant flashing red (upon a cold boot).
[*] Use of a #6 x 1/2" sheet metal screw (not tapered head) helps to solve the problem of loss of alignment over time of the Matrix.
[*] Connecting points W1 to W2 in the Evox_Matrix_TSOP_Flash.bin diagrams is equivalent to connecting the TSOP write-enable jumper on the bottom of the motherboard.
[*] 3 Resets on your xbox either means your tsop is damaged or badly flashed or the matrix is missaligned and yes it can be green and missaligned.
[*] The xbox is NOT! water proof and dropping it into a swimming pool WILL damage and or distroy the box
[*] Keep your Xbox happy with good ventilation, which will greatly extend the life of your Xbox. i.e. Do not place it on a carpet and run it for hours.
[*] Just because a CD doesn't work, you don't run out and buy another brand; try changing the files, make sure its an iso, and make sure (i cant express this enough how many people do this and deny it) make sure the main file isn't default.xbe.xbe it happens all the time.
[*] The weight of an Xbox plust the weight of a 27" TV is indeed enough to collapse a ping-pong table.
[*] Xbox Live IS NOT the only way you can play XBOX games online. Try Xbox Connect or X-Link.
[*] Xbox can NOT run "PC" Windows (XP, 2K, 9x, ME) as of right now, only versions of Linux, natively. Using a program like "XBochs", the Xbox **can** load Windows and DOS, but it will run very, very slowly. At this time, it's not practical to run Windows on the Xbox. It does run WindowsCE, which is designed for embedded devices.
[*] Theres no Internet Explorer for Xbox... there **IS** however, a web browser called "Linksbox" that can get the job done for you, in most cases.
[*] Theres no Pikachu version of Xbox
[*] Unreal Championship is only as addictive as you allow it to be
[*] The "Black" button on the xbox controller is actually blue (look in the sunlight)
[*] The controller S looks dark green in the light too, and its less obvious with fatty, really dark green......
