    update: some more games since I first posted and some hotly anticipated ones at that.

    As the subtitle says this Friday night was not all that active on the releases side of things for a change but there has been a lot of other stuff happening.
    Old threads linked at the end of the post as usual.

    For the time being I will leave this warning section in
    Wave 4 which has workarounds available is upon us, see wave 4 thread for more: <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=185528" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=185528</a>
    I am having trouble finding an up to the minute source that tells me what wave a release is (abgx360 lags a few days for obvious reasons) but I will share any info I can get- while I imagine a few of the games released over the next few weeks will have been pressed ahead of time we have already seen a handful of fairly high profile releases bearing the wave 4 mark so do not count on it.
    A wave4 supporting iextreme (version 1.61) is now available for benq and samsung drive users (more in the homebrew section). No ETA on liteon or other drive models.
    1.6 users can still use the one shot boot disc and 1.51 hitachi users should be able to boot without any special measures.

    MS have started their ban wave for Autumn/Winter 2009, no word on who how people are being targeted (people with all drive models, all drive firmwares, abgx360 checked games, before release and after release playing have reported bans while others are carrying on business as usual).
    Thread here:
    <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=188345&st=0&start=0" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=188...t=0&start=0</a>

    This happened a few days back but they apparently cracking down on games being played before street dates as well (a change from their actions in the past), more here:
    <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=186000&hl=" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=186000&hl=</a>

    For those just joining us the general idea behind these posts is in each post the days (or time since last post if nothing much happens on a given day) summarises the state of the 360 scene, it is done in the subforum as GBAtemp is mainly geared to towards the GBA and current Nintendo consoles but there are a substantial amount of 'tempers familiar with other consoles as well who discuss such things on the 'temp.
    We cover big releases (a short writeup, release name, region locking information and NFO), the smaller releases (those without English in are usually covered here although we will cover a big Japanese release on the rare occasions one happens), any nuke information and likewise any confirmed games added to the 360 game verification tool ABGX360 as well as any homebrew news.
    We tend to avoid covering the P2P game releases as they are not especially reliable when they beat the scene to releasing (previous years have seen several big releases made ahead of street dates which were later found to not be up to scratch) and afterwards there is not much point, this being said if any are of note they will be mentioned in passing.
    If you have any suggestions for the format of the post or things we should add please chime in, if you want to help out in the coming months when things get really busy (we are sure you have all seen at least one summer games drought followed by a packed autumn/winter release schedule which is usually made even worse by being able to move in these circles) we are recruiting people to help post these up.

    <!--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-->

    <u><b>Nukes</b></u>
    Nukes no new ones or any un nukes. (ABGX lists 207).

    <u><b>Homebrew</b></u>

    The 27th/28th saw the release of the new 250 gigabyte HDSS.bin so those with compatible hard drives can make their own 250 gig drive for about the same price as an official 120 gig drive goes for if not less. To go with it someone hacked support into xplorer360 (a tool to read original xbox drives, 360 hard drives and 360 memory cards). This may change but check you can use smaller drives with this version (some 250 gig versions lack support for smaller drives owing to the nature of the hack).

    In case you missed it last time around HDDHackr v1.22 Build 20091022 was also released.

    <b>Nand Pro 2.0b</b>
    This program is the one used in the recent homebrew activity, this update brings several changes
    "This release fixes a bug when a sector fails to write, ie it will retry the block now.
    Before it could corrupt the rest of the write. Reading was unaffected.
    Also new feature, allows a "virtual nand device": Which is a RAW file, that nandpro pretends is a nand
    It can then extract/inject individual blocks from a image, instead of a nand (ie no hardware)
    For example you could inject a small xell into a large image with the following:
    nandpro completerawimage.bin: -w16 xell.ecc"

    <b>iXtreme v1.61 BenQ - Samsung - Team HyperX -THX-</b>
    For most this is the big news, this is 1.61 of the iextreme firmware that sports full compliance with wave 4 games (this is contrary to earlier speculation that is might just be checks disabled like 1.51 hitachi drives). It is only available for BenQ and Samsung drives at this time though with no ETA on other models.
    1.6 users can use the one shot boot disc and Hitachi users with 1.51 can still boot right away.
    Those waiting with earlier firmwares (most likely 1.51) we have more or less completed the shift to wave 4 and while I expect a few releases to still be wave 3 several big releases have already been wave 4.

    To go along with this Jungle Flasher V0.1.67 beta (50) has been released that adds support for the iextreme 1.61 release.

    <u><b>Less notable releases</b></u>

    A couple of releases since last post.

    <b>Divinity_2_ASiA_XBOX360-CLARE</b>- You may recall the German release a couple of days back, the English speaking releases are set for 2010 though.
    The game is the sequel to the well received 2002 game Divinity, it is an action role playing game similar to games like Fable and Draken but with a very strong emphasis on the branching storyline. The NFO claims English is in the release but I am not going to call it. No NFO up on ABGX/Ludibria yet so spoilered in this section it is
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    <b>Tekken_6_JPN_XBOX360-Caravan</b>- The Japanese version of Tekken 3 (probably region locked). Tekken 3- a popular fighting game series making a debut on non Sony home consoles with this version.
    NFO link:
    <a href="http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=1917" target="_blank">http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=1917</a>

    <b>Additions to ABGX360</b>
    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
    ABGX360 ( <a href="http://abgx360.net/verified.php" target="_blank">Web frontend to verified database</a> ) added:

    SpongeBob's Truth or Square <i>NTSC/J (Excludes China) and NTSC/U</i>
    Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City <i>RF </i>(4th wave)
    Ben 10: Alien Force -- Vilgax Attacks <i>RF</i>
    Rock Band Track Pack: Metal <i>NTSC/U</i>
    Tekken 6 RF (4th wave)

    Presently the ABGX360 database is the only source we have other than NFOs for determining what is 4th wave or not, if you have a better source for us PM FAST6191 or reply in the one of the relevant posts. With 1.61 available or on the horizon now this message will probably go when everyone can easily play wave 4 games.

    <!--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.
    Most of the big games have been released or were region free already. We are however only a few days off from another big releases week.

    In order of most recent to pre, ABGX does not seem to be on the ball for the last few releases but we have you covered here:
    As an aside 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">http://shailendra88.blogspot.com/2009/02/h...in-firefox.html</a> is of some use.

    First up there is a apparently a p2p version of Modern Warfare 2 doing the rounds, looking at the build date there is a very good chance this is an early demo of sorts. It also lacks PFI, SS and DMI (you will have to patch them in which will not be detailed here- one of those "if you have to ask" situations)

    Thanks to luke_c on gbatemp IRC for this one.
    If it appears in the meantime on the scene (especially from a group you have never heard of/appears to be a one time group) think long and hard before you indulge.

    <b>update for new releases</b>
    <b>Call.Of.Duty.Modern.Warfare.2.Xbox360.RF.WAVE3-Strikeforce</b>
    Region free- supposedly wave 3.
    update 2- has been nuked for as it pre'd without and SFV although the nature of the release has been questioned.

    A one time group on the 360 at least (I am not inclined to search other sections of the scene) releases a game first seen on p2p (OK so this is probably a modded p2p release) so treat with extreme caution, I would love to be proven wrong but we have seen this sort of thing many times already (Halo 3, borderlands, PES, Brutal Legend, tekken 6, batman.....) this Christmas rush and in previous years.
    The game however is the sequel to call of duty 4 (indeed in Europe at least the modern warfare 2 part is a subtitle of sorts) and is one of the big releases of the season.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    <b>Dragon_Age_Origins-XBOX360-SPARE</b>
    Region free. Due out on the third in the US, 4th wave.

    A fairly highly anticipated RPG made by same people who made Mass effect, Bauldurs gate, Neverwinter Nights and Star wars KOTOR among other things.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    <b>Divinity_2_XBOX360-CLARE</b>

    Unknown region (CLARE are a fairly good group so if naming is correct then it is region free multi5 version (standard big 5 European languages).
    Another RPG to the 360 (we have actually seen quite a few of late and many of them quite good), as mentioned in the less notable releases above this is an RPG with a branching storyline and sequel to the well received 2002 game Divinity.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!



    <b>end of update for new releases</b>

    <b>Rock_Band_Lego-XBOX360-SPARE</b>
    Region free, unknown wave.

    SPARE bring us a copy of Lego Rock band, while this is a themed rock band it would seem Lego characters are not known for their songs save perhaps <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATBl4qH9I54&fmt=18" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATBl4qH9I54&fmt=18</a> which having heard the Smurf's CD is probably a good thing.
    The song list is aimed at a more family friendly which would normally be the signal to run away but having done a few of these music game writeups now it looks to be one of the most solid track lists yet (although that might just be Fire by Jimi Hendrix), full list inside spoiler.
    For those just coming into this music game business you get a set of plastic instruments that act as simplified versions of the real thing (and considerably more expensive/about as useful to regular instrument playing as an air guitar/tennis racquet).

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    <b>Jurassic.The.Hunted.USA.XBOX360-DComics</b>
    Region locked US only.

    After bringing us a release of Forza 3 several weeks early new 360 DComics have now brought us a copy of Jurassic The Hunted a few days ahead of time.
    Jurassic The Hunted somehow slipped under my radar, quickly looking around the game appears to be a time travelling FPS where you fight dinosaurs. I am more inclined to call Dino Crisis than Turok though (not least of all because the last few Turok games aside from the GBA version were a far cry for the N64 heyday). How it will stack up against recent/soon to be release FPS titles I am not sure but I doubt it will be awful.

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

    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>

    <b>XBOX360.Release.Standards.2007.v1.340</b>
    <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.

    As many of you know modding your xbox can lead to a ban from xbox live (more or less the only recourse Microsoft have), we do not know the exact methods used to detect modding but it is a fair guess that it is related to the games not appearing as originals for various reasons.
    While playing games prior to street dates has been considered and indeed as of mid October 2009 MS have been seen to be targeting those who have as yet "unreleased" games on their profiles it is still somewhat up in the air.

    On the other hand prerelease games can sometimes be bad dumps, dumps from non retail sources, bad packing of dumps like any other dump but without a retail copy it is markedly difficult to verify a release beyond the basics. The tool AGBX360 is used to verify isos, directories and games burned to disc and can fix isos and directories if necessary but requires this data (a basic check using the data the game holds is still possible though).
    Those who do not care about being banned from live or are willing to risk it then not much need to worry unless otherwise mentioned (as an example the first leaks of Halo 3 ODST were bad which meant while they would run a good chunk of gameplay was missing).

    Little bits of 360 release history will be covered from time to time but if you want to delve into the substantial back catalogue of games for the 360 then
    <a href="http://www.abgx.net/filename/?ch=6" target="_blank">http://www.abgx.net/filename/?ch=6</a> has release names and a great deal of info.
    Another site that is also very useful is (they are frequently a source of the NFOs posted with these releases)
    <a href="http://www.ludibria.com" target="_blank">http://www.ludibria.com</a>
    Other sites with useful tools and info are
    <a href="http://abgx360.net/" target="_blank">http://abgx360.net/</a> (the homepage for a tool to verify and fix games, once a game is added to their database a more thorough check can be performed).
    <a href="http://www.xbins.org/" target="_blank">http://www.xbins.org/</a> the web frontend to an FTP site dedicated to homebrew for the original xbox and 360, easyxbins is a nice tool to access the FTP site ( <a href="http://www.360mods.net/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=29" target="_blank">http://www.360mods.net/index.php?name=Down...tails&id=29</a> )
    We will leave info on how to flash xboxes for games and/or homebrew to other threads as it occasionally moves fast and is better left to them.

    As mentioned in the first big paragraph the 360 supports region locking leaving it to developers and publishers to choose what is done (other than German releases what will be done is very unpredictable).
    Those without a homebrew enabled 360 (even then it takes a bit of effort) will find region locking is not able to be bypassed on the 360.
    There is no great worry unless you are sporting a Japanese 360 (English language games are often region locked out and Japanese xbox games can take months to appear) as game releases usually fall very close together region wise these days. Close together means usually within a week and this still usually means before street dates in respective countries.

    It has not come up here but it has in other places; region free is region free and it does not matter what territory the game that was ripped comes from so if there is a region free NTSC sourced release and you are in a PAL country do not wait on a PAL release unless you are waiting for a given language as it will not happen (and if it does scene rules tend to mean the release is nuked), similarly we are going to shift to just stating the regions a game is locked to rather than sources to try and eliminate some confusion unless it is unknown at the time of posting.
    There are four regions as far as the 360 is concerned being Japan (NTSC-J), USA (NTSC-U), Europe (PAL) and China (NTSC-C), Australia counts as PAL and anyone anywhere else in the world will probably have an imported 360 so I will leave that to the owners to figure out. China and Japan usually overlap along with the rest of Asia but not always (there are not all that many Chinese releases anyhow).

    As mentioned there is now a homebrew method that works on new consoles (previous ones would only work on consoles without HDMI) provided you have not done the August 11th 2009 update or any subsequent ones. Many versions of Xell (the homebrew loader) have now been compiled so most 360 models are now hackable and the rest should fall shortly.

    There are two main options being considered:
    1) Flashing a different region code- unless you have a dual nand chip (one region on each) this is a fairly long winded process but it does work.
    If you can ignore the text speak xbox scene has a guide (we suggest you use it as a rough guide to understand what is going on):
    <a href="http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=693753" target="_blank">http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=693753</a>
    If you should manage to have your motherboard/cpu key and provided you do not downgrade then you should even be able to do it on a post august the 11th xbox, this is probably a very small subset of people but if you were hanging on with the intention of doing this sort of thing you might be in luck.
    Chip development (NAND chips this is) is also progressing once again.

    2) A "rebooter" app- The general idea is to (soft) reboot into a custom kernel/similar which handily ignores things like region checking.
    A few early stage hacks exist for older homebrew methods but recently a tool called freeboot appeared (it is still far from complete) that allows soft rebooting into a different kernel which is the first stage on the road.

    A handful of 360 homebrew sites and guides exist (our own forums are also filled with knowledgeable people too) so for the curious

    No worries Mbmax, most of this is a template and I already keep on top of things for me.


    Any real reason for the reply it seems it got busy again. I will update the main post when the show I am watching finishes.
    In other news I am gathering interest for a review post like the retro reviews but for this last few months on the 360 (any anything else if people want).

    Just pre'd
    Call.Of.Duty.Modern.Warfare.2.Xbox360.RF.WAVE3-Strikeforce

    A one time group (on the 360 at least, not bothered to search other sections of the scene) releases a game first seen on p2p (OK so this is probably a modded p2p release), treat with extreme caution (I would love to be proven wrong but we have seen this sort of thing many times this Christmas rush and in previous years).
    The game however is the sequel to call of duty 4 and is one of the big releases of the season.

    Dragon_Age_Origins-XBOX360-SPARE - A fairly highly anticipated RPG (same people who made Mass effect, bauldurs gate, Neverwinter Nights and Star wars KOTOR.
    Region free. Due out on the third in the US.

    Divinity_2_XBOX360-CLARE

    Unknown region (CLARE are a fairly good group so if naming is correct then it is region free multi5 version (standard big 5 European languages).
    Another RPG to the 360 (we have actually seen quite a few of late and many of them quite good).

    Modern Warfare 2 and Dragon Age are both Wave 4.
    If Modern Warfare 2 is Wave 4, that practically means everything from this point on will be as such.

    is activate.iso safe to use or will it trigger a flag for ms to ban you?

    Just put a little more precaution in any game you use Activate with, it'll boot the game weither the stealth checks out or not. Most releases do have it, it's just that the current abgx will see the Wave 4 and deny it.

    That being said, the word going around is that Modern Warfare 2 has Tekken 6's stealth injected into it, so I would advise staying as far away from it as possible until a new rip comes out.

    Indeed, follow Gaisuto's advice and don't download Modern Warfare 2, even if you are tempted. I do not trust any of these rips and its too early to be playing this early...wait for a legit scene release!

    Call.Of.Duty.Modern.Warfare.2.Xbox360.RF.WAVE3-Strikeforce nuked for
    "pred.without.sfv_p2p.repack_questionmark"

    I also found an NFO for it.
    Code:
    Lo bitches.. 
    
    THis is RF ! 
    
    Patched it for the people who havent yet updated their X360 yet..just like me.. to lazy hehe and DO want to play the new games.
    
    Have fun.. and dont play online.. or you WILL get banned with this game
    A rather lame reason but I expect this will change if/when p2p repack/modded iso is confirmed.

    On some of the pre sites apparently xbox360 (as in the group) lost the race for Dragon Age Origins (Dragon_Age_Origins-XBOX360) by just under 11 minutes so they got nuked for being a dupe. Others have nothing on it,
    "dupe.SPARE.2009-10-31"

    I also see a few "wave patchers" appearing with the aim of making changing a wave nearly trivial, I say everyone leave them alone (everyone with a modded 360 has a way to boot wave 4 now).

    Yet another more releases
    Band.Hero.XBOX360-MARVEL

    This song list business is confusing so link I found in a quick search:
    <a href="http://www.joystiq.com/2009/10/19/full-band-hero-track-list-importable-songs-revealed/" target="_blank">http://www.joystiq.com/2009/10/19/full-ban...songs-revealed/</a>

    I think I shall just label these songs "music to cut your wrists to".
    One NFO

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    are you still holding out some kind of stupid hope that wave 4 is a fad?

    I can not speak for Gaisuto but I am going with not so much fad but definitely more lag until it became default- go back to wave 3 (it was a late spring and nowhere near as active as Christmas run up) and we had a couple of weeks for big games.

    Don't touch any release of MW2 unless you are already banned or don't mind being banned there is no legit release yet no matter what some of the sites out there are saying.

    Better scene than sorry [​IMG]
    Don't even do what that pastebin link says there is no confirmation that any of the ss pmf dmi used are from a retail rip, they could be from any game.

    I'm anxious to play Modern Warfare 2, but not THAT anxious. I doubt anyone would be anxious enough to play that they forget to use common sense.

    lol You should go see a specific 360 forum. Most are playing it on Live already. I mean, I'm anxious to play but they're playing some bad rips and are stepping into dangerous territory but they obviously don't care. =/

    As if any more confirmation were needed ABGX now lists the Call.Of.Duty.Modern.Warfare.2.Xbox360.RF.WAVE3-Strikeforce release as injected with "wave 3 video/PFI." in the "Bad CRC or Needs Fixing" column.

    What the hell are you talking about?
    I never said Wave 4 would never come, I just said it'd take a while to kick in. It took about a month for Wave 3 to spread like it did, Wave 4 just happened to spread a little faster is all.
