Speaking as an ex-Microsoft employee (I worked on Windows), I saw a lot of this, because it's an intentional feature for internal users. We called it "pseudo-localization": it's basically an automatically generated "language" that we used to make sure every piece of text in the program is accessible to the translation team, without going ...

Based on the Wiki page listing all System Link compatible games, it looks like the maximum number of consoles that could be linked varies from game to game. The maximum number of consoles able to be linked appears to be Delta Force: Black Hawk Down, at 32 consoles.

It's Xbox. Can't get more official than the official website.

You CAN use a non-Microsoft hard drive. I had a non-Microsoft hard drive that was from EBay and it did not allow me to play Xbox originals. I was able to modify it to allow me to play originals. Here is how: Remove the hard drive from your Xbox if it isn't already. You can plug your hard drive into your computer via an Xbox transfer cable or by wiring it ...

Searching around, I don't see any kind of adapter for an Xbox 360 controller to an Xbox port. I don't think the original Xbox supported any wireless controller either. The Original Xbox certainly had some sort of proprietary port for it's controllers, but I've read that it's just a standard USB in a weird form factor. Third party modifications may be ...

If you request the refund within 14 days of purchase of the game, Microsoft will credit your xbox account, not the paypal. Be sure to have your order number (it would be in your email) on hand. You can start the refund process on their main store page, here https://support.xbox.com/en-US/help/subscriptions-billing/buy-games-apps/refund-orders

All you need to have is an Xbox memory card to do this: You need to transfer an Xbox Live account to that Xbox in order to play. The reason why you need an Xbox Live account is because the whole serial code was not needed for Xbox it only required that you had Xbox live or an old account. You have to have a gamertag to play Xbox PSO, even offline. Xbox ...

No, you need a Microsoft Hard Drive for your Xbox 360. The flash units that you can pop into the front of the Xbox only provide space for save games and do not come with the requisite software to support Xbox games. The ones that says certified by Microsoft or certified for Xbox, like that sandisk unit, only means they match the speed requirements the Xbox ...

For an Xbox to read DVD's it has to have a DVD Playback Kit. If you do not have this kit attached to your Xbox and insert a DVD, it will give you a message telling you need it. You may also get this message if your Xbox cannot read one of your games, and it will thus sometimes register it as a DVD. Here is a DVD Playback Kit you can buy

Understanding that this is an old question, I wish to update this thread for future reference. The Xbox head, Phil Spencer, has hinted that he wants original Xbox games to play on the Xbox One. Sources: http://www.geek.com/games/phil-spencer-wants-xbox-one-to-play-original-xbox-games-1675442/http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/original-xbox-games-could-become-...

Short answer: No. Playing games for the original Xbox on the Xbox One is not supported, nor announced by Microsoft at the moment.

I found this information, hope this helps you. The NXOE update allows you to set inverted Y axis automatically for EVERY game at the system OS level, using the Xbox Accessories app. Here's how: If you don't use Kinect, you can find the Xbox Accessories app by pressing left on the Dpad, then choose the Gear icon for Settings, then in the Settings choose ...

This has to do likely with the video chipset on the original XBOX. Like any machine, really, the amount of work that the GPU has to do goes up if there is more going on, on screen. When it is raining, there is alot of movement and pixels that have to be calculated and drawn. In an open area, there is far more clipping and 3D calculations going on. In a cave ...

Your save is corrupted. I recommend deleting the save file and then reinstalling the game as the game can still act a little wonky even with the corrupted save deleted.

It was just a bug and the update has fixed it.

But in-game, the controller is not detected. You are probably trying to use a game that only supports XInput devices (aka only Xbox 360/One/Series controllers). It also doesn't seem to be detected by DS4Windows. I don't see any references to Proslife in the list of known devices on the DS4Windows repo. You should probably open an issue and give out ...

I don't believe the Xbox had USB ports - the Wiki states that the four controller ports were properietary USB, but you'd still have to have some sort of adapter I imagine. So I would imagine the answer is none. It was only with the Xbox 360 where they used USB properly.

NTSC and PAL are analogue TV standards and you don't have to worry here - all modern TVs (actually even most of the old CRT ones) have no problem between understanding those two. When it comes to the power - well from what I've read it seems that XBox power supply is not as universal as for example PS4 one - while the latter one would accept 100-240V, the ...

If you want to know the voltages accepted by you Xbox unit, just look at the sticker right next to the power port. It will list the required amps as well as frequency. The voltages should also be listed in the Xbox manual.

There is no possible way to connect a Wii controller to an XBOX. It would be quite a hassle to play certain games, such as Halo, and not be able to play it due to the fact that the Wiimote (Wii Remote) does not have 2 functional joysticks, X and Y buttons, or a multitude of other buttons. If you want two different controllers, you should probably just order ...

If you buy a game you can play it on all profiles on your console.
