allright a question for the soft modders i'm trying to softmod using the splinter cell game (pal) and gamesave. that part works fine, i create a backup of eeprom and ms dash (the softmod tells me that i have a pal system!!) and then i install the softmod (dual boot PAL!!) and after it is done (use unleash) i always get a black and white screen on my tv (meaning that the dashboard isn't in colors but in black and white). the ms dashboard (using the eject button) is in color so after softmodding where i choose for pal using the pal splinter cell gamesave and pal game (on a pal xbox) (since i live in europe and it is all pal), i get a softmod with the ntsc system. whatever i choose (pal or ntsc, single or dual boot) i always end up with a ntsc softmod which my old tv cannot handle (hence no color, only black and white). the ms dash is fine, that is in color. after such a softmod, if i reload the sid 4 installer, it says that it has ntsc video i cannot remember ever having this problem, but some time ago i erased my memcard. i just reloaded it with the sid 4 and sc pal savegame (which i downloaded from the xbox download section on this website). from then on i just noticed it, whatever i choose, it is always ntsc. if after a softmod i run the sid again, the system tells me that it is no longer pal (which it tells me if i softmod a virgin xbox the first time) but it is a ntsc. this is off course the problem, the softmod install the system as a ntsc. no matter what i choose. who knows what i'm doing wrong. i always end up taking the harddrive out, using xboxhdm to rebuild the harddrive using the c4rn1 cheater files (have been using them for years). with those files, no problems at all!!!
