Can anyone that has this try and play it on their xbox 360 that has new nxe dash.

Maybe it also needs to have never ever been tried as I have tried it on 2 of my xbox that have the nxe tonight and it dc xbox live as if to go and get update but returns to dash and just repeats pattern if you try again.

Thanks

thats fines it's the thought that counts : ;-)

As I said it might be alright for a user that on old dashboard tried to play disc and took update from xbl or disc but I have two originals of this and neither work on neither of the 2 360's in my house that have new nxe I will try my 360 in bedroom tomorrow as I don't think I have the new nxe in that one yet.


I asked here as I hoped someone may have already tried it and theirs is doing the same or they had heard about it and know if ms are working on a fix asap

The new NXE dashboard seems to have a fair few bugs...
I take it the disk is fine?

Thank you

I will be emailing them later to tell them I want refunding for the games then if they do not fix it as I thought the idea was that the 360 played 360 games and it was not a selective task in that all 360 pal games play on a pal 360 console but i will get email back saying that it is beyond the scope of the email service and that I will need to phone a 4,000 digit number and speak to 6 Germans 4 guys from India and 1 supervisor somewhere they are not allowed to disclose to me his whereabouts and then to have this query/bug report/ system malfunction escalated to a senior member of the tea making staff.

Oh no! I bought this of someone on a different forum a few weeks ago - hadn't tried it yet.

Bah! I hope they fix it....

see pm

Just experimenting trying it now, I had it free with PGR 3 myself, seems to keep signing you out of live and taking you back to the dashboard, attempting currently to install it to the hard disk....looks like a patch is needed.

*Update...won't play from a hard disk install either, a live update patch is needed for sure.

I maybe should have said to save you and anyone else the trouble the first thing I tried doing was to install to hard drive which is how I found out it did not work then I simply removed files form hd cleared cache and tried from disc [Sorry]

No worries, tried anyway, guess Microsoft need to know so they can do one of those " A live update is available for this game" thingies.

I tried the other way round to you, so at least that covers both options ;-)

I reported it to Ms 360 team see what happens.

I emailed them (via their xbox.com contact us form)..........their response was they couldn't disclose private information via e-mail and i would have to ring but it is probably a Vista problem. They haven't got a clue what they are doing. :lol:

Just stumbled on this from another post (ta Syzable).

My disc based version works fine but I need to navigate to my Games Library and launch them from the arcade list (where the other downloaded ones are).

These games can't be installed to HDD it has to have the disc in.

The disc launcher does nothing and hasnt prior to NXE as far as I can remember on my machine - had to launch from the library.

Hope this helps someone.

(forgot to mention - remove the disc and the games disappear from the game library listing)

Cheers

Thanks for that........i did it through the Arcade list as you say and it works. :w00t:

Rep given.

Wonder why mine will not work like that the other day as I tried as it comes up with games library every time yet still would not start.

unless you mean each individual title

Yup - each title will be listed in your library i.e. all 5/6 games?

Its displayed like a normal XBLA downloaded game, but will not be available to you unless the disc is in the drive. It cannot be installed to HDD and the play functionaility form the menus no longer works. Just pop it in and select the title from the games livrary and off you go!

Only ever play bejewelled off it - lol

Original Poster

If I had of known what the games where called on this disc it might have helped as they are bundled ones with pgr3 so no box inlay LOL I did see wiki lost souls and a in library but the game name just did not register as being one of the ones on disc wish I had of googled what was on disc now , what a stupid way to launch this disc, cheers

Bejewelled 2, Hardwood Backgamman, Texas Holdem, Geometry Wars, Outpost Kaloki(?sP) and Wiki are the games if remember correctly - should have listing per each of! :thumbsup:
