    1.6 doesn't support wave 4 games directly. Download the activate.iso disc and burn that, then you can play the game. Search the forum for more info.

    Well, apparently I'm an idiot... I'm having the same problem with the wave 4 games. I recall with the wave 3 games, there was that iso file on the abg site that we downloaded, and put in the stealth files, and bam, the problem was solved. So I did the same thing. Sure enough, there it was. I downloaded it, extracted it, and put the iso in my stealth files, felt brilliant for solving my problems, and then hit autofix on abg, only to have my feeling of brilliance shattered into a million pieces as I received the same error. Am I missing something, or is something wrong? The two I'm having trouble with are Dragon Age and Assassin's Creed 2. Both are on the list of verified games. Can anyone point out what I'm overlooking here?

    Hi everyone!

    Is the brand of the dvd a must? I mean can I use other DVD brands then Verbatim because the local shops where I live have only TDK.

    I do not know about anyone else, but it seems to me the "powers that be" could make this waaaayyy easier.

    For example, everyone knows that when you use the "hot swap" technique you do not rip the security features. That is why you need to run abgx. So it fixes the splitvid partition, and the security sector redirect. Both of these are missing using the hot swap method.

    When you use an XBOX 360 drive (who really uses this method?) or a properly flash Kreon/Lite-on drive, then when you rip, you get a direct 1 to 1 copy so you don't really need to run these other programs. Unless of course you turn off all these features when you rip it. Or maybe you have shytte/buggy hardware in the PC.

    So I will get to the point. Why not have the abgx software set up so you only have to download various "packages" once. For example, right now, wave 1,2,3,4,5,and 6 and SSv1and2 are being used. Make a package/plugin for each one. A wave1 package, a wave2 package, and so on. The same as the SSv1, and the SSv2. Later, when M$ makes wave 7,8,9 and SSv3,4,5,6,7 all you have to do is dowwnload the new packages. Doesn't this sound reasonable. Now you might say each vid and/or SS is unique. They aren't. Firstly, all splitvids in wave1 are all the same in each rip, you just need the right one to remain "stealthed". Same with every wave. I suspect the same for the SS.

    If the software was set up like this, when you had your "hotswap" rip, or even your "Kreon/Lite0on" improperly ripped, you could select the proper SS and wave to merge into the ISO from a list box. And you wouldn't have to download anything except if a new "package" came out. It would all be on the system already. You could even have a small database file for all games and what features they should get so it is all done automatically.

    The only thing that comes to mind as a comparison is "AutoPatcher" for WinXP. If you know that program, then you know what I am trying to say.

    Or maybe it is just me? Anyone else think the same?

    Just as a side discussion, you don't need to do any of this B.S. if you do not plan on going on LIVE. Once you patch the Drive to the new firmware, security means bugger-all.

    Note: This could be in the wrong thread, or maybe I should have made a new one. You admin guys can fix that if that is the case. Move it to a new thread?

    Oops. I just realized what I said. I must make a correction.

    The SS file will be unique to the GAME DVD in question. So a "package" would not be practical. Each game would be different. I suppose an SS package could still be made. You just download the SS package in question before you start. The space required would be a concern maybe?

    Sorry for the FUBAR. I think I might have had to much coffee. As soon as I posted it I realized it was wrong. When you think about it for a minute, it makes perfect sense.

    But the waves would still work as said.

    Okay, this tutorial is A1. I just need the answer to this one question. If the verification is good but the DMI says its unverified, is it still stealthed?

    Okay, since my last question wasn't answered yet, i figured i'd add to it. Keep in mind i still need the answer to the other question. If the stealth status is uncertain because the video partition doesn't match the known data, is it still okay to get online without them banning me or does it enhance the chance of getting banned?

    If this is my log, is my game safe to play on Xbox Live?
    I am not sure because of the Yellow part that says "Stealth status is uncertain"

    Sorry I've got a bit of a noob question but I was wondering if anyone can help.
    I was wandering if anyone knows if there is anyway to get updates of which games are 'stealth safe' on the abgx database? For example, I've ran Just Cause 2-Allstars through abgx today and it passed stealth check but it never last week. However, on the database it still has a question mark under 'Stealth'. I use my xbox online so really don't want to take the risk.
