    <!--sizeo:5--><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Introduction</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->
    Welcome back to the 360 releases posts, no major releases but worth a post anyway.

    Idea behind these threads

    <!--sizeo:5--><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Nukes and related news as well as less notable releases.</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->

    Two new nukes since last time (ABGX will shortly list 247).

    As predicted <b>Resident.Evil.5.Gold.Edition.PAL.READ.NFO.XBOX360-VATOS</b> got nuked for being a dupe (the extra content was merely a voucher to download it) the nuke reason varies slightly in wording depending on where you go but <b>content.not.availble.in.disc.just.the.code.to.download.them_dupe.KFC.2009-03-03</b> is the general idea. The game will still work though just without the extra content so do as you wish.

    <b>How.To.Train.Your.Dragon.PAL.XBOX360-SWAG</b> got nuked for m0.compression (no compression in the archives) but that will not trouble the end user and it is still appearing in the main post.

    <b>Dynasty.Warriors.Strikeforce.Pack.3.DiRFiX.DLC.XBOX360</b> Also appeared but I am not sure why.

    <u><b>Less notable releases</b></u>
    Quite a few since last post, again mainly Japanese region dupes of games from last year. <b>Hokuto_Musou_JPN_XBOX360-Caravan</b> makes the main post.
    Less notable releases

    <u><b>XBLA games and DLC content</b></u>

    FYK were joined by XBLAplus and RB-DLC to continue the flood of XBLA and DLC content, naturally you need a homebrew capable 360 to run all this.
    Due to the flood NFOs will not be linked up <a href="http://www.ludibria.com/index.php?sys=x36" target="_blank">http://www.ludibria.com/index.php?sys=x36</a> (better yet <a href="http://www.ludibria.com/index.php?sys=x36&ord=1" target="_blank">http://www.ludibria.com/index.php?sys=x36&ord=1</a> ) has them all though if you fancy searching.

    None since last time.

    The usual music game updates but alongside that is a couple of interesting looking DLC stuff for some bigger games.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    A fair bit of homebrew news since last time
    Homebrew news

    <u><b>Game updates</b></u>
    With the live bans and ability to run DLC it seems a big need for game updates "offline" appeared and many sites/groups rose to the challenge. This means we have a new section in the 360 releases posts for them, note that the updates posted may not necessarily reflect the latest updates as they can be backfills to the database or simply just now outdated dumps from a rapidly updated title. Demos are not really going to be covered.

    General info on (offline) game updates

    I got a bunch of new domains for the the xbox update center site so we are back in business here and all the updates since last time we updated this section are going to be here, <a href="http://www.elitemodscene.com/" target="_blank">http://www.elitemodscene.com/</a> should have a few updates available to you if you search for them if the XBUC site is down again.
    <a href="http://xbuc.clanvids.net" target="_blank">http://xbuc.clanvids.net</a> added (TU=title update):
    old game updates list
    <b>Additions to ABGX360</b><u></u>
    We suggest you use the link below and the abgx360 tool as the site does not use scene naming meaning it can be quite hard to tell entries apart, this is just for reference really (RF= region free)
    ABGX360 ( <a href="http://abgx360.net/verified.php" target="_blank">Web frontend to verified database</a> ) added:

    <!--sizeo:5--><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Releases</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->

    Release dates can be found here: <a href="http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/" target="_blank">http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/</a> although the dates on gamefaqs seem to be slightly "off" and as usual are subject to change at the last moment.

    As an aside if possible the NFOs are being sent as unicode/some encoding that will not lose the format if possible which means we may not lose the ASCII art any more (I am far too lazy to make up picture NFOs not to mention I like text), for old ones perhaps <a href="http://shailendra88.blogspot.com/2009/02/how-to-view-nfo-files-in-firefox.html" target="_blank">this link</a> is of some use.

    For the new members the general layout of each game here is
    Scene release name (in bold)
    Region locking information (rebooter apps can dodge region protection but they are far from available to all so such things are staying)
    In previous posts wave information (if known) which is not necessary now everything can run every known game and as such will not be appearing any more.
    A short writeup of the game (who made developed/published it, past history of the franchise, if I or one of mine has played it then a quick review). We invite others to comment on games and they frequently do so read their replies as there are many games/genres/franchises and so on I do not care for.
    NFO in spoilers and codebox.

    Unknown region locking although most of the rest of the series has been region locked to the respective countries. A European release is set to happen though: <a href="http://koei.co.uk/news/?id=30166" target="_blank">http://koei.co.uk/news/?id=30166</a>

    The dynasty warriors series is branching out again, having now done classical Chinese history, samurai, Chinese and samurai crossover, gundams and soon ancient Greek/Roman history it is now the turn of classic anime. Hokuto (no Ken) is perhaps better known as Fist of the North Star and is often credited with being one of the first big series to bring anime over to the west.


    Region free.

    A game based on a film and a third person action/adventure at that. Set to be released in a day or two I can not find any reviews of the game or anything like it.


    <!--sizeo:5--><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Useful things to know</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->

    This section aims to serve as quick intro to things that are often assumed elsewhere in these threads, it is never going to be a definitive guide so do not consider it as such.

    First the current WIP GBAtemp 360 FAQ (not the same one that is stickied), it should cover most questions you might have on the 360 although it too is looking a bit out of date right now:
    <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=157263" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=157263</a>
    For drive hacking related questions the jungleflasher tutorial is probably the most up to date guide:
    <a href="http://jungleflasher.net/downloads.html" target="_blank">http://jungleflasher.net/downloads.html</a>

    <a href="http://pix.gbatemp.net/32303/XBOX360.Release.Standards.2007.v1.340.png" target="_blank"><img src="http://pix.gbatemp.net/32303/XBOX360.Release.Standards.2007.v1.340.png.tn.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" /></a>
    Click on the image and it will load up the full picture.
    Some sections of the scene also use the general console release standards as well as the 360 ones. Realistically it is only the problems with the isos that you need to be worried about and even then some can be fixed (simple things like no/bad .dvd file) but we will leave it up to you to determine what you consider acceptable.

    Haha, I guess I'm going to play it in a few minutes. [​IMG]

    I didn't read the first post exactly but Game Room came out too. But it doesn't work, it has some issues, or so it says on MajorNelsons Twitter. Really sloppy Micro$oft, really sloppy.

    How.To.Train.Your.Dragon.PAL.XBOX360-SWAG was unnuked as apparently it was compressed:
    UNNUKED: m1.compression.used

    The real reason is:
    BlazBlue_Calamity_Trigger-PAL-XBOX360-DAGGER Appeared.
    Would appear to be region locked according to the title but the NFO is useless.

    A fairly anticipated game by the looks of things, this is a 2d adventure fighting game similar to the likes of street fighter. It got some good reviews too.


    On the XBLA front


    Game Room XBLA appears to be a hybrid of the konami classics pack (old arcade/classic games) and the PS3 home thing.

    gotta love the NFO of BlazBlue Calamity Trigger

    Thanks for the update FAST

    wanted to ask, do you know about the specific bug fixes on Lite-On Iextreme LT other than disk reading issues. I've been running it for about 2 weeks or so, everything seems smooth, you think it worth the hassle of flashing to 1.1 ?

    T-hug Always like this.

    Meh...the game room isn't even like Home...it's basically just an emulator with pictures of an arcade and you pay $.50 each time you want to play a game or $3.00 to buy it(of course if you're using these releases, it's free). BlazeBlue is great, though a little late...Or I forgot if they added anything to the PAL version.

    Depends what you mean by hassle- if you have already flashed it you should have keys and frankly I would probably spend longer pulling the thing apart than flashing it. If it is working and your existing rips/future rips are done using good media carry on with the current one.

    @Seraph I agree, that was a very poor choice of words on my part.

    After the last few weeks I have more than enough to be getting on with but it looks like this April will be fairly slim pickings for new games (May is a different matter though).
