    Slayers is a great program for the average xbox modder. It is loaded with all current apps from what I see so im not too sure why you say its outdated. Lots of programs that give so many people hard time setting up are installed and configured for you. The version Slayers 2.5 comes with dvd2xbox .49 as well as XBMP, lots of people have had hard time setting these up. It formats new drives for upgrades in a snap which can be a nightmare for people, and sets everything up for you hassle free. You are right, it isnt that hard to ftp a dash over and upgrade it but that is such a very small part of this whole program. There has been so much work put into this program to make modding available to people with little or no computer knowledge. If everyone is using it then I say that speaks for itself and I would say that you are a minority.

    This question is kinda like asking why people use GUI's and not just useing command line..

    Sure Command Line will get the job done, and it isnt that hard if you know what your doing, but itns it easier to just use a GUI?

    Never thought to subscribing to High Speed Internet? I can assure you that it's way fast at 480k/sec

    slayer's made me jump from being an ultra noob to, well, a plain noob. i, for one, love this prog as it gives people a chance to greatly increase their learning curve. the only problem i see is that some people don't bother to move on (like learning to ftp and upgrading the apps) after they install it. lastly, i agree that not having high speed internet would cause you to shy away from this.

    the file size just does not add up. Evox dvdx and the latest media centre for the x box does not even add up to 6 mb, but slayers program is over a 100 mb!!!.
    Fine they also have to fit the install part of it in, but its still just to darn big, i mean 6mb for the programs that are goin on to it, and 94 mb for the install, FOR GOD SAKE JUST FTP.

    The point of slayers: it comes in ISO form, and has on screen instructions. It was made for people who do not know what they are doing.

    I've been trying to get Slayer's for so long now, but I can't connect to the server to get it. I wish it was on an FTP or somewhere else where I could get it. The way my campus internet is, mIRC doesn't work too well.
