    There have been a couple of other releases but they can wait until a bit later, thanks to Thug4L1f3 for pointing this one out.


    <b>Assassins.Creed.Brotherhood.XBOX360-GLoBAL</b>
    Should be region free. *update 2* apparently wave 8 or 9 (will be the kinect dash) and as it also has AP25 that will be triggered unless your machine originally rocked and still rocks a hitachi or a samsung drive, you might have to update the dash manually as well (see posts below). LT+ is already way underway although no release date has been set.

    JTAG users will have to update to the latest freeboot (0.4) which is done with fbBuild_0.1 before even considering this. After this you can use Dashlaunch 2.05 or later (2.05 is current and these days features an installer) or hack the game to remove AP25 (patched xex, downloadable patches or manually hack with xextool). Without dashlaunch GOD installs will not work.

    Collectors edition DLC might appear later.

    Assassins Creed has been with us for a few years now and has seen several entries into the series on various platforms, this is the third big console release. This one most notably features multiplayer and looks to be an expansion of last years Assassins Creed II- many of the same characters, timeframe and gameplay.
    Amazon blurb
    * Choose from multiple authentic character classes, each with their own signature weapons and killing moves. With richly-detailed maps and a wide variety of unique multiplayer modes, you'll never fight the same way twice
    * As Ezio, a legendary Master Assassin, experience over 15 hours of single player gameplay set in the living, breathing, unpredictable city of Rome
    * Recruit and train promising young Assassins. Deploy them across the city as you see fit, or call upon them to aid you in your quests
    * Collaborate with real historical characters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Niccolo Machiavelli and Caterina Sforza
    * Swiftly eliminate your enemies using tools such as poison darts, parachutes, double hidden blades, hidden guns, and an advanced flying machine at your disposal

    Just tried running this game and it comes with a forced dashboard update, which I did thinking I was safe with my Hitachi v79 drive with 1.51. But after the update I get the Disc Read Error message when trying to play the game, however Fable 3 still works fine (isn't that the other ap2.5 game?). So play this game at your own risk!

    @Crass some are saying the v79 is the one version of the hitachi that does have AP25.

    As for JTAG you have a few options (I was reading various things earlier today although I have yet to even consider trying anything yet). GOD apparently does not work (or more precisely most people are opting for other methods as GOD would be an extra step on top) but you can get it working.

    You need to extract the iso (see exiso), remove the update files (in a folder named accordingly which is the same for all discs) and either replace the xex file with a hacked one* while others are saying it is your basic xextool (or xextool frontend) hack to remove protections (mainly lib version although you can always lose the rest too) so you do not need to go on a hunt like you have for various other games like mass effect 2- some even said it works on the old 9199 dash if you hack the xex like that (not surprising really as it was probably a last minute recompile but I would not expect that to work for other games for that long). Xextool and fsd/xexmenu apparently share a patching method so you can opt for that as well if you like (the patch xex option).
    From here it is your basic USB loading techniques (xexmenu/FSD/similar or shortcut loaders).


    *it is doing the rounds somewhere and there is another patching program apparently.

    @air2004 yes it will break Fable 3 if you update the dash.

    @lenselijer there is apparently a fix in as much as you run it from xexmenu or FSD as an extracted iso with a patched xex file* and you will need to lose the update folder from the extracted iso. I covered the steps/programs up above.
    You can still install to the hard drive just not as a GOD install (or you have to do this before sticking it in a GOD container), indeed if you were so inclined you could probably burn a disc.
    Stick it in a folder called GAMES located on the root of partition 3 (the main one where you usually play with things) if you want it to appear automatically to xexmenu/FSD or anywhere you like if you want to browse to it.

    *you can download the xex file, download a patching program or you can do it yourself with a program like xextool.

    I am getting increasingly curious about all this so I might have to investigate all this myself. If and when I get it sorted I will post back.

    I've read that v78 hitachis are also failing the ap25 check too!

    Thanks Crass. It looks as if the AP25 read failure has registered in the security.

    I guess anyone with a Hitachi drive and updated dash should steer clear of any AP25 Ripped games for the time being as well.

    IF you think about downloading it...
    Be cautious the first month, because of Black ops, fable3 and AC3 all are released really quick after each other...
    I feel a banwave..

    Only 3 more days for the real one!

    so ripping the game, taking out the update files, re-burning, and then trying to play is no good for flashed drives ?

    - as in for those on 1.6 NS and 1.6 + Activate ISO ?

    im guessing we flashed drive people must just wait for LT+ ?

    I am about 4 hours into this one so far, picks up right where AC2 left off and so far is just as good.

    I am grabbing Hot Pursuit right now, Ill confirm if its working on Hitachi whenever it gets a release thread of its own.

    Prior to this AP25 thing it was a simple as it gets (you hack the DVD drive, download isos, check and burn them to DL discs), granted knowing all the various things that could go wrong, JTAG machines and how to pull everything back gets a bit complex but your basic playing of games is as easy as it gets as far this or indeed last generation goes. Once the hacked firmware gets updated it should get about that simple once again.

    New releases will be posted shortly assuming my internet holds.

    I have the game with old dash, its asks to update or it wont play, i wont update my console as i dont know what it will do, i have heard you can "remove" system update folder and it works in some cases... i got a feeling its not as simple as that, lets hope theres a patch which can remove the system update request so we can play it without any issue

    It seems to be good if people have Jtag, but firmware modded might not be so lucky, lets hope it gets sorted soon im dying to play this game
