Do you think that this will be a recurring theme? Game updates can be made each week and all the system has to do is try to access ANY file from the last 2%. A FW can be made to give the correct response but what happens when MS introduces and update that asks for a different file located on the last 2%.

Once again, we will be waiting for FW. Some will get banned..some will be lucky enough to avoid. They will patch it up..and then the following week MS checks for the previous file and gets some more..

I think that ODE’s like Xkey/Wasabi will be the only realistic option very soon.

as someone else pointed out they used to only have 750 mb cds, now 800 is all i see. they could just as easily start selling 8.7 gb dvds in stores sometime.

hopefully they do.. cuz i dont see M$ backing down anytime soon. c4eva will come up with a solution, M$ will come up with a new curveball. its going to keep happening AT least until the next Xbox console is on the market.

i can’t see them making an xgd4, but they could start adding and changing ap2.5 data for all the games. everyone would have to get dvd-rw dual layers, so they could erase patch and reburn every update using the same disc lol…

@quick

That wouldn’t even help. The fix wont be disc based. C4E has said that a fix within LT+ is forthcoming. So, its still pretty shitty.

The firmware does not know how to respond to the new checks. We have had the new FW for about a week. This shit is just gonna get worse. c4e needs to bail and start working with the xkey guys.

yes i to worrie about the fix coming from the firmware side but odde c4eva has said its a no go .need new media . this fix in firm hopfully is a standard answer to this new civ check. that will not change very much but who knows they say civ IS RHE REAL DEAL so will see. but media is the answer

well he can’t put the last 145 MB of every xgd3 game into the firmware, so eventually we might just need bigger discs. last week people were convinced that we were going to have to play pressed silvers
