my xbox thompson drive died what the fuck do i do? Can it be replaced with any generic IDE drive ?
>>

I think that was how I played MWC

Just chip it and put in a bigger hard drive. You can use a standard ide drive to install the new os with a chipped Xbox.
>>
>>8230032
apparently all dvd drives are interchangeable.
>>
>>8229929
Ninja gaiden black, jet set radio future and halo 2 are all you need, though you should grab splinter cell for the exploit. And there's a lot of multiplats that have extra content on xbox, content they didn't advertise, strangely enough.

I want to love it but the piece of shit keeps breaking and are very hard to come by where i live. I fixed the disc drive to be able to hack it and then the fucking power supply dies, and without me doing it starts to work again for months and dies again...

Crimson Skies was such a good game. Shame they never made any more.

OP, if you want a fun arcade volleyball game, DOAX is pretty good.

the transfer rate on the xbox is so slow, just put the games on the hard drive

I tried both and the game actually feels better on the Xbox, idk why. Also you can even mod the second one with the cut content in the xbox.

you only need to add like one jumper and bridge something

uh...nope. you clearly have no clue. you have to mod it first. and to do that you need to buy a bunch of shit and hotswap a hard drive. pain in the ass

play more games, that's not even a top 20 racer on the system lol
>>
>>8232894
>you clearly have no clue.
i have tsopped my system and added more ram. you said hard not a long nothing about softmodding is hard at all it just takes a while I assume you meant the soldering
>>
>>8233009
nobody gives a clear method on how to mod or i if i should softmod or modchip so i just give up
>>
>>8233010
tsop is the same as modchip but you dont need to use a modchip since you can use the xboxs bios chip instead, you gotta softmod first to be able to flash the tsop tho. if you get a modchip you can just plug in and go youd probably wanna upgrade the hdd though. Both tsop and modchip are better than softmodding. If you tsop you can reset to a non softmodded state after but you will have the tsop flashed with a custom bios
>>
>>8233015
yeah but if i tsop only then i lose functionality modchipping lets me do more mods
idk what im supposed to buy though
>>
>>8233017
>if i tsop only then i lose functionality modchipping lets me do more mods
tsop is exactly the same as a modchip
>>
>>8233028
>tsop is exactly the same as a modchip
for almost every user this is true
from my experience modchips can have onboard rom banks to boot off instead of using the xbox bios. Handy if you have a CPU modded system to change clock speeds for games that don't play well with non-stock speeds. also booting dev bios
>>
>>8233028
you need a modchip to add RAM and easily swap hard drives
>>
>>8232894
You don't need to hotswap unless you're trying to upgrade the drive while you're softmodded. All you need to softmod is a cheap copy of Splinter Cell and one of those USB adapters.
>>8233582
Mine is TSOP flashed, and all I had to do to upgrade the hard drive was drop the new one in and set it up with a Hexen disc. No idea if it's any more complicated than a modchip for RAM or CPU upgrades though.

Weird how they got so many Japanese only xbox versions. Like that Kasumi blue one. I thought it didn't sell very well there.
>>
>>8233962
and what are my options if ihave no disc drive at all
>>
>>8234357
There is some convoluted hotswap trick for softmodding, but you can also swap in any other working xbox drive.
Modchip might be a better bet, but it's still going to be a pain to do some things without a drive.
>>
>>8234508
iirc even with a mod chip he needs to launch a disc to get the dashboard installed.
>>
>>8234513
I think you can build a drive from scratch with xboxhdm, but I'm not 100% sure.

Build an xbox hard drive from your computer that is.

complicated and you need more than just that
>>
>>8233582
>you need a modchip to add RAM and easily swap hard drives
no you dont, I have a ram upgraded machine which is just tsopped. with tsop you flash the exact same bioses that you would flash on a modchip its just installed on the system bios chip instead of an extra one on the modchip

softmod guide - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW6QsGXTrFQ
you only need to softmod to be able to boot the hexen disc and can remove the softmod after you have flashed the tsop. The only things to need to buy are a xbox to usb adapter and a copy or splinter cell or some other game with a save exploit.

There's a very small list of compatible DVD drives, and any you find will most likely not be on it. Your best best is to get a drive from a different xbox.
alternatively, the lowest effort option is to just softmod it and play games off the stock hard drive. It only has room for one game, so you'll need to delete and transfer again every time you want to play a different game. Kind of shitty, but it's the only method to get your xbox playing games again that doesn't involve new hardware or even opening the xbox.
>>
>>8236012
You should open your Xbox and remove the clock cap. Not doing so will lead to its early death.
>>
>>8236012
Revising this advice:
With a dead DVD drive, you'll still need to open the Xbox and do some hotswap fuckery between the Xbox and a PC (USB to IDE adapter) to do any mods to it. Even with a modchip, you won't be able to put a dashboard on it without a DVD drive. Order a replacement Xbox DVD drive or make a friend IRL who does Xbox stuff that can help.

>>8236032
Also this (Unless it's a v1.6)
>>
>>8236084
>Even with a modchip, you won't be able to put a dashboard on it without a DVD drive.
If you have a TSOP or a modchip, you can build a drive from scratch with xboxhdm. It seems like a pain to do compared to just using a disc though.
>>
>>8236209
>>8236084
fuck that
this shit is impossible man
>>
>>8236793
Buying an xbox drive and swapping it in is easy. If you can't manage that, just sell your xbox and buy one that works.
>>
>>8236806
installation is not the difficulty here anon
>>
>>8238014
I found a few just looking around on ebay. Found a few dead consoles that probably have working drives too.
If opening up the console isn't the problem though, you could try taking the drive apart, cleaning the laser, and adjusting the potentiometer to see if it'll last long enough to mod it.

>>
>>8238587
>mod it
nobody has given a clear method on how to do this. nobody can even agree in these threads if you should modchip or tsop
>>
>>8239342
If you're actually going to swap the disc drive, use the save exploit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/originalxbox/wiki/gse
If you're not, then hotswap:
https://www.reddit.com/r/originalxbox/wiki/hotswap
Not even going to bother linking hardmod stuff, if you can't find it, you're just going to brick your console.
TSOP and modchip can do the same stuff, but you have to softmod first to TSOP and it's harder to brick your console with a modchip.

Do Xbox games use anti-aliasing, and if so, what kind? I am asking because of this pic here >>8239762 which shows the Xbox version of THPS2, and it looks anti-aliased, but also a bit blurry compared to the sharp Dreamcast version, so I'm wondering what's up with that.

Hey boys think im just gonna go with a modchip despite being on a early xbox because my disc drive is fucked
whats the cheapest modchip possible

Both need a heatsink. The GPU will survive for a bit, the CPU will fuck off right away.

can i construct a good enough heatsink then? i gotta figure this out...
