    I have a few problems that i need help with...I am running Evox D6 ejectfix dashboard, with evox BIOS and an X2 pro installed

    1st of all - what folder do i select to make the xiso of a game...the "D" folder or the folder that contains the "D" folder. I bought Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge, then when i got home i FTP'd to my hd then made an xiso, choosing the "D" folder as the folder containing the files to make the iso. then i burned it with alcohol (i couldnt find out how to make nero smartstart to make an iso dvd). the xbox reads it is a game, but when i select "Launch DVD" it goes to the screen that says evolutionx then just goes back to the dashboard

    2nd - I am trying to upgrade my BIOS to the Xecuter2 BIOS, i downloaded it and used X2BM to make it into a 1 mb file. I then used nero to create an image of this and a folder containing the dummy files that another forum said i needed. when i put it into the xbox it just comes up with the evox dash and says either "unknown" or "no disc." i tried cd-r, dvd-r, and dvd+rw for this, none worked

    Can anyone help me with either of these problems...it would be greatly appreciated __X_X_X_X_X_[small]Jslayer[/small]

    just google for craxtion, i think it's the 2nd link that will comeup is where you can download it. just ftp the game from your xbox to the PC, then run craxtion and selct the gaem folder, it will aptc hthe xbe automatically and create the xISO if you have the latest version. then burn that iso with nero or whatever

    did you get the OCX error patch? try that, and try reinstalling it to a different directory.

    there are instructions that come with the solution patch, you gotta exctract those files to a coupel of different directories. you run the main file that you downloaded for craxtion and install it to "whatever" directory then go to that directory and run the ISOcraxtion.exe. what OS are you running?

    do you mean the instructions that are the text file? i dont understand what thats saying, it only has like 3 lines, and im not that good with computers, so i dont understand...is there any possibility that you could give a step-by-step?

    one of the downloads that was on the site was the installation wizard, so i just used that and installed it to C:/program files/craxtion, which was the default...

    im running Windows XP home_X_X_X_X_X_[small]Jslayer[/small]

    as far as upgrading the bios, i cant help ya there, i run the matrix chip which only allows the 256k bios. try xbox-scene.com, you should be able to find guides on anything there
