    use the ntsc swap magic will play pal games great. and the differnce between the signals is the frame rate and lines of resilotion ntsc is 29.97 frame per secondand 525 lines and pal is 25 and 625 lines.

    patching means to switch the signal and the swap magic is a set of boot discs that will play backup and imports and i got mine off ebay just google swap magic and youll find what you want.

    by the way where did you get the cricket 2004 game was it an original ?

    get Swap magic 3.3 and you will be able to play both PAL and NTSC games on your system. but you will then also have to learn how to use a slide card as well, or order one with the swap magic 3.3
    http://www.clearxbox.com

    swap magic 3.3 you can set the screen mode to either. But i would put in the game and check to see if the game has an option on it first. Like Shadow Of Rome does, you can select the language and also what frame rate you need so it loads correctly.

    As for Gameshark, it works fine. I now use AR Max myself because the codes are smaller and less numbers to enter. But yes they work, and with a little extra work they will even work with back up games.
