Microsoft Most powerful console available. The Xbox is doing well on its homecourt, but on the road sales aren't dominating.

Any Modchip owners here?

As most of you know, i have modchips in all of my systems. I was wondering if i was the only one or if other people had them too. Now Xbox has emulation for most systems.. Playstation, Nintendo64, Dreamcast (WIP), Atari, SNES, NES, Genesis... basically nething emulated for PC, is now on Xbox. Homebrew games are getting pretty good too.

I have never owned a system and modded it in any way. I just can't bring myself to buying a mod chip or device and opening up a system. I know you can do other stuff, other then playing pirated games, with a modded system, but I don't import, and any old game I want emulated I already have.

Q: What is a Mod Chip?

A: When installed in your gaming system, such as a PlayStation or XBox, a mod chip will allow you to play imported games as well as backups of your own games made on CD-r or DVD-r Media.

I'll be receiving one of my Xboxes back by next week... new HD, LED's, Evox dashboard... the works!

I didn't put the lights in the controllers though. I thought that might be a bit much.

It couldn't have been me. I've never yelled at anyone regarding piracy. And this thread has nothing to do with piracy as far as I can tell. You're the first to even type the word.

i really need to read up on this... i've fell out of the videogame piracy loop...

i hear that if you logon to XBOX Live with your Mod Chip on you get banned for life or some shit... how true is this and is it easy to turn the chip off before jumping on live and do you know anyone who has slipped up and got caught...?

i'm a little nervous about forking out the cash for this whole project when i know i could potentially be screwing myself over if i have a memory laps one day...

Banned for life? No, simply buy another Xbox Live kit. Most good mods have a switch you can turn it off as if there isn't a mod chip at all.

ah... so another xbox live kit would solve the problem...? i'm assuming i would then have to use a different credit card as well...?

but they wouldn't be able to know that i'm still using the same XBox... correct...?

actually that's wrong. It's been proven that when they ban you, they ban you based on your Xbox's Serial Number and HD Lock Number. Once you are banned, you either have to change that (steal a friend's serial number) or buy another xbox. I just brought my xbox back and said it was broken.. and got another one. Since then, i used my old Xbox Live kit, and added a Toggle Switch with a new modchip.

it happened to me because i was a beta tester in two aspects.. Beta Tester for Xbox Live and beta tester for Xlive and Modchip support. I was one of the first to get banned. I announced it all proud that xbox live was modchip compatible and the next day everyone got banned.. Got a lot of shit for that.

i see... so you don't think you'll ever slip up and just forget to turn the chip off...?

is it something that's hard to forget...? what kind of reminder do you have...?

anything different during startup...?

That's bullshit, my friend got his account banned and he set up another account on the same Xbox.

Further, he called MS and they gave him back his old account since he claimed it wasn't his Xbox.
