Hi all,
Just wondering who downloaded the new maps on the 5th and what you think of them. Terminal and Relic are my favorites so far, but that's because I don't play as well on smaller maps.

nice :D , what exactly did you do to it. I still don't really understand the whole modding practice. My cousin did it, but he said he soddered something into it?

There's basically 2 ways to MOD an xbox. Hard Modding and Soft modding. Hard modding involves putting a mod chip into your box, and sodering it into place. It's actually the easier way to do it. The other method is called Soft modding. It involves using a Save game exploit in Splinter Cell or Mech Assult. Basically you trick the Xbox in to running un signed code, thus launching an application that gives you FTP access into the drive. There you can do anyhting you want. Swapping out the HD in a softmod is the tough part. You need to emulate the original Xbox code and Eeprom. I don't want to get into too many details because this post'll be 100 pages long. But there's tons of info here: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=82561 :D

Interesting, I may screw around with it after I get a 360

The only reason I did mine is because the 360 is coming out so soon. IF that wasn't the case, I probly wouldn't have risked it.

Must be nice. After you have a modded xbox what do you need to play those mappacks?

Nothing actually. My XBL still works because I soft modded my xbox.

if halo was released on the PC exclusively, it'd be just another FPS. HL and HL2 crush it easily...
