    XB360 Dishonored DLC missions. The main game is great (particularly) if played for stealth, right up there with the likes of Deus Ex and Thief series. The DLC adds a trials set and two additional...

    I understand but it is not clear exactly what is being defined as a RPG. As I indicated I thought you were probably just talking about traditional, typical turn based, RPG/JRPG storylines. But I...

    I hate JRPG and traditional turn based RPGs with a passion and always will. I've tried FFVII, FFVIII, Skies Of Arcadia, Grandia I & II, Legend Of Dragoon, Alundra and handful of others.

    It would be better to use Rocky5's own tutorials but I can not see anything wrong with that second alternative YT one. If you followed that and everything was downloaded from reputable sources and...

    It is unusual for SC not to work if it is a genuinely retail state Xbox.

    You are/were using an authentic original PAL version of the game I hope. I've used three different PAL ones (original...

    Yes but make sure you get the correct version - with Splinter Cell all known versions of the game can be used but others: 007 AUF, MechAssault and the, often forgotten, Tony Hawks 4 may require a...

    I realise it is not the Sega original I think we're talking about here but one source that might be relevant is still the Xbox version of Panzer Dragoon Orta (PDO).

    I've just checked and the XB360...

    Glad to hear that.

    I've always been very wary of Slayers. Too many softmodders have tried to use it not reading the clear warning that it is intended just for chipped machines (TOSPs?). But even...

    I'm in no way an expert on chipped Xbox's BIOS, so I can not say what has gone wrong now.

    You needed to use a BIOS of the correct size for your chip that supports LBA48 ie. 137+GB HDDs. It also...

    There seem to be very few IDE HDDs in the 40GB - 320GB range that can't be locked. I've yet to find any WD, Seagate or Maxtor 120GB one which is incompatible and, in fact, SATA ones should be even...

    Purpose designed caddies for mounting 2.5" drives in 3.5" bays are reasonably cheap and easily found. One of my desktop PCs has a single awkwardly located 2.5" drive mounting point so I used an Akasa...

    The burning speed, if that is the issue here, is actually a combination of what the disc drive, burning software and the media itself supports.

    For instance my TSSTcorp SH-224DB (Toshiba Samsung...

    I've just about played as much of the original Xbox's WW2 Squad based FPS Brothers In Arms: Earned In Blood as I want to. I've played the Story mode and replayed-it on the hardest difficulty and it...

    Sorry I could not be any help.

    One thing I was wondering about the PS1 games' readability is what happens if you use the PS2's option to increase the spin speed of PS1 games? It does not help with...

    This is probably not a lot of help but the usual cause of disc read problems, as for other consoles, is a laser issue. Either the positioning or a dirty lens.

    I have no PS2 laser experience only...

    Like anything else Windows 10 is not free so unless you have the rights to install it on more than one PC (unlikely) of course you have to buy a new copy. There are, apparently, alternative solutions...
