Just installed and ran xbgx1.06. Tested on Kinect sports season 2, no patch whereas AC:Brotherhood did download topo patches for reburn.

Do we only have to reburn games that show a patch was downloaded? In this case KSS2 shows ok, so no reburn required?

Will the ap25 and xgd3 iso’s continuously always need updating/reburning in future?

But since I’m running LT2.0 offline with no intentions of going online, and every game has been working fine including all xgd3′s so far, should I even bother patching and buying new Verbs to reburn everything? Or just wait it out until new games require a dash update/LT3? I believe I’m currently on 599 via usb update, never online.

Thanks

Lt+ 2.0 won’t read AP25 & XGD3 games that are patched with the new abgx because abgx is patching in topology data instead of AP25 data. Lt+ 2.0 requires the AP25 data or will result in an Unrecognized Disc error and flag whereas Lt+ 3.0 requires the new topology data and will throw an Unrecognized Disc error if you’re using games patched with AP25 data instead of topology.

Sounds a little confusing, I know, but just think of it this way; Lt+ 2.0 requires AP25, Lt+ 3.0 requires topology. Abgx is only patching topology now so if you patch they won’t play on 2.0.

Hope this helps =)

OK thanks for the info. But will this topological data be updated on isos, meaning we’ll always need to keep our backup iso to continually patch and reburn like how ap25 was?

I’m just trying to decide whether to update my benq to 3.0 and reburn everything when in a few weeks, data might change requiring reburns again if that’s the case. For right now, everything is running good on my non-patched games lt2.0 because I’ve always stayed offline.

No, the topology data eliminates the need to re-patch and re-burn every time there is an update. That was the point of using this new method and crowning it “the silver bullet” because it defeats AP25 altogether. I would probably update now simply because by time you are forced to update through a game’s system update requirement, you will end up having to re-patch and re-burn even more games by then. It’s entirely up to you but I would get a head start to avoid more inevitable wasted discs if my drive had Lt+ 3.0.

I have a Hitachi 79 so I won’t be in your position for a long, looong time hah ;)

ok thank you very much for the info. Yup I’ll be waiting on my 79 system too cause unfortunately my benq system is going through repetitive error 74′s
