Kaip ir kiekvienas ateinantis, esminius pakeitimus įnešantis Dashboard atnaujinimas (pvz Kinect), turi atskirą temą, tai panašu, kad ir šis atvejis (naujo disko formato palaikymas) irgi neišimtis.
Žemiau pateikiama "oficiali informacija" pasirodžiusi internete iki šios temos sukūrimo. Visas vėlesnės naujienos - tiesiog pranešimuose šioje temoje. Sėkmės!!!
New Beta Dash 2.0.13141.0 Stops All Non AP2.5 Games From Booting:
We tested the new Beta Dashboard 2.0.13141.0 and can confirm that all games that are NOT AP2.5 patched fail to boot to a black screen (Previous LT+ Non-AP2.5 symptoms) – there is still a lot more testing on really old games (Pre Fifa 09) so we will keep you posted.
So (as suspected) AP2.5 will be activated across the board once the new dash is released, and also as suspected, LT+ has shown to still work by protecting the system from a flag and bypassing the AP2.5 check. (Naturally we expect the AP2.5 checks to get harder and deeper so this is just the beginning)
C4E has confirmed that there WILL be a public method to rip your own AP2.5 data from titles thanks to all the new AP2.5 Table information that was discovered a few weeks back.
C4E also looks forward to receiving the new Halo Reach XGD3 disc
A fun summer ahead for sure.
…..Also standby for a number of HUGE releases by C4E, Team Jungle & Team Xecuter very shortly…….
Edit: Reports of 2.0.13142.0 also but we’ve not got our grubby hands on that yet
More about New Disc Format (xgd3) and C4Eva Comments:
A highly placed development source has confirmed to Digital Foundry that the new disc format being beta tested in a new dashboard upgrade adds 1GB to the storage of Xbox 360 game discs.
The maximum space allocated to game data on the current disc format is just 6.8GB out of a maximum of 7.95GB on a standard dual layer DVD, with over 1GB dedicated to a DVD-Video partition that also contained anti-piracy security sectors. It seems that this video partition has either been drastically reduced or omitted completely in the new format Microsoft is looking to roll-out.
Beta testers of the new dashboard get a free copy of Halo: Reach once they are accepted into the new preview programme. We can assume that this isn't just a generous gift on Microsoft's part - more likely it is a disc pressed using the new format, and Microsoft is looking for data on performance on as many different systems as it can.
From C4Eva on EFnet via c4evaspeaks.com:
[Z****] so what do u think about new disc format [http://c4evaspeaks.c...-dash-preview]?
[c4eva-] MS will introduce xgd3 – this will add more ap checks, cvi (content integerity) checks, increase the disc size and adds a new layer for protection issues – all in the 20500 sdk! bring it on!
[J*****] C4 will this effect the launch of Slim lt? will it be delayed for some reason?
[c4eva-] will know more once we get one of these new discs!
Xbox 360 System Update Preview -Updated:
I am happy to announce that we’re doing an Xbox 360 System Update Preview program for our next release, and the opportunity to sign up is now available. We are conducting an open call for US based participants* for a public preview to help us prepare for an updated Xbox 360 disc format. This is an important update as we continually strive to improve our products and we could not do so without the help of our great Xbox community. As part of the preview program, you will receive a copy of Halo: Reach along with other possible rewards.
