I softmodded my Xbox with an 80GB IDE hard-drive a few years ago. I remember it being a huge pain in the ass to softmod with the molex connectors etc, but I’m glad I did it since I haven’t had a single issue playing any of the games that are installed since. Here’s the 24 games I installed:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Conker: Live & Reloaded
Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
Fable: The Lost Chapters
Genma Onimusha
Grand Theft Auto III
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Halo 2
Halo: Combat Evolved
Jet Set Radio Future
Metal Wolf Chaos
Ninja Gaiden Black
Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors
Otogi: Myth of Demons
OutRun 2
Panzer Dragoon Orta
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Star Wars: Republic Commando
Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse
Tenchu: Return from Darkness
The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2x

All these games plus their applicable DLC only amount to 68.5GB total (with 177MB available space remaining in the games partition). Plus I have a bunch of music for Grand Theft Auto custom soundtracks on another partition. I really like the console. I can see why some people think of it as the successor to the Dreamcast.

Xbox 360 has no soul, though.

Does anyone here remember this shit? I've been itching to play this game again, I know it looks (and probably, or definitely is) some generic ass, bland space marine TPS title, but I have some fond memories of it.

Also: I recently tried Pariah again but on the PC after owning it on the original Xbox 10-15 years ago, and honestly it just feels like an Unreal II TC mod, I feel like a lot of UE2 games suffer from that (not necessarily a bad thing, the game is just boring.)

>I want to be able to get 128mb ram and never worry about changing hard drives
Which is what a TSOP flash will allow you to do. What exactly do you think the difference is between a modchip and flashing the TSOP? Both are methods that do the exact same thing: boot the Xbox with a custom BIOS. There is no difference. When people say their Xbox is "hardmodded", they most often mean they flashed the TSOP.

>> No.8203625

>There is no difference.
There's a slight difference. If you want to flash TSOP, you need to be softmodded beforehand. Whereas for a modchip you need only install it, with no extra work.
I think most people would prefer to softmod beforehand if it means they don't have to solder as much, but if you're experienced at soldering, I can see why you would prefer to just modchip it.

>> No.8203626

>get a model 1.6

You have got to be trolling at this point.
All a modchip does is boot a different BIOS. What bios are you going to boot from your modchip?
Evox m8plus? You can flash it to the TSOP.
iND-BiOS? You can flash it to the TSOP.
X2 5035? You can flash it to the TSOP of a v1.0 or v1.1 console.

Upgraded to 128mb of ram? Then you use the 128mb RAM version of those BIOS in either case.

A modchip has no other function than this. A system with a flashed TSOP is identical to a modchipped system.

hotswapping is only for upgrading the HDD on a softmodded xbox, not for actually getting the thing softmodded. Softmodding is nice because you don't need to solder anything, but obviously if you don't mind soldering and buying a chip, then there's no reason not to hardmod your xbox. I don't think anyone who softmods their xbox thinks it's better than hardmodding it.

I've heard the 1.6 has picture quality issues but I can only verify that by that, people meant you needed patches to run certain games on component. My 1.6 is getting some fuzzy picture on my component cable. Is that more likely an issue with the cable or is that also a problem the 1.6 has?

I really like Scarface. The look and feel of Miami, the music, the fact you can have a persistent soundtrack really does wonders in setting the mood. Plus it introduced me to one of my favorite tunes from the era.

I see some metal and stuff from the era occasionally, hiphop is common too. It's really nostalgic hearing it. I've been thinking of making a few mixes just to have on my own Xbox for when a game offers a custom soundtrack but the default one doesn't do it for me.
