X3 Config Live Build 1959

If you discover any bugs or wish to post successful test results please use this forum.


The v1.6plus version of this bios is now compatible with v1.6b Both versions have 
been tested and fully working on all versions / regions of Xbox.

Make sure you follow the diagrams and instructions to the letter - or you WILL have problems.

The default.xbe (x3_erase) app is to erase all settings from the X3 EEprom in case you forget your password
and lock yourself out of X3 Config Live. This does NOT reset your video settings as they are stored on your
Xbox EEprom and not the X3.

X3_1959.bin is for v1.0 - v1.5 Xbox Versions
X3_1959_v16plus.bin is for v1.6/v1.6b Xbox Versions.

For v1.6b detection RAM is usually Hynix and v1.6 RAM is usually Samsung

	- fixed: widescreen bug. Now switches to 16:9 instead of 14:9
	- fixed: ram timing issues. Now works fine with cheap Hynix RAM (v1.6b)

	- fixed: pal60 flags fuckup - this release should fix all pal60 issues (non working ms dash)
	- note: pal60 setting now moved to settings/video modes, only visible when current mode is PAL-I
	- fixed: "eeprom backup info" if no backup existent

	- fixed: display of wrong time after backing up Xbox eeprom in x3cl
	- fixed: local timezone bullshit - you wont get wrong values anymore when setting time in x3cl
	- info: steady hdd led in x3cl is normal -> x3cl is querying the hdd for free space left informations
	- added: x3cl now runs in widescreen too if widescreen enabled in eeprom
	- fixed: x3cl modeset switching problems; eeprom user section checksum calculation was fucked up - 
	  this caused non working widescreen/video mode settings! fixed and tested 100% now - please switch video modes in              x3cl one time to correct the eeprom user section checksum

	- changed auto-480p behaviour: 480p now automatically enabled in flubber&x3cl ONLY when we are on NTSC-U and 480p is 	  	  enabled in eeprom. If this is not the case then both things are displayed in 480i
	- tested bios on xcalibur/focus with *microsoft HD pack*, 32 testcases with various videomode combinations tested, 	  	  all work 100% now. 
	  *Don't* enable 480p in eeprom if you dont have a 480p capable device!!!
	- Note: other HD packs (and also x2vga) may bring different results!
	- fixed wrong time display - now x3cl displays/sets time with correct timezone

	- removed X3 flubber for now since it seems to be the reason for non booting games (fucked up framebuffer pointer?)
	- fixed "rename" function in ftp - works now
	- fixed "dir = 0kb file" problem on D: drive, other drives work perfectly (tested with flashfxp 3.0 b1015)
	- HALO 2 booting and working 100%, note: you have to disable debug mode (as you had to do in HALO 1) to make it work!

	- (finally?) fixed HDTV videomodes, tested on focus and xcalibur
	- x3cl now always 480p if hd pack is attached
	- startup anim now always 480p if hd pack attached
	- Saved Games DO work. If you saved games with the older versions of X3 then they may be corrupted. New saved games 	          will work - lame CERT bug, sorry.

	- fixed non working hdtv on conexant / focus 
	- 480p on xcalibur still not working - bughunting in progress 
	- fixed non booting games 
	- fixed system link problem on 1.6 - we need test reports 
	- fixed savegame corruption on 1.6 - we need test reports 
	- fixed problem when entering passwords. note: passwords are 8 chars max! 
	- ftp can now move files across drives, but note, this doesn't work with directories atm. XBOX API function 	  	          "MoveFileEx" only moves files across drives, not dirs. 
	- [TEMP. DISABLED DUE TO XCALIBUR 480P BUG] X3CL now displayed in 480p if hd pack attached 
	- [TEMP. DISABLED DUE TO XCALIBUR 480P BUG] flubber now displayed in 480p if hd pack attached 
	- When using FTP try to use a decent client like FlashFXP - we have zero issues. Using Internet Explorer ftp or some 		  other client maybe not be 100% 
	- Disabled the "3" Logo and put the XBOX text back on startup animation in preperation for your custom .x files on a 		  later build.

	- fixed backup rom flashing
	- added lcd support (which can be toggled in menu)
	- added flashing of internal backup rom (crashes, due to cpld issues?)
	- changed code to new x3 config registers
	- after changing a dashname, the dash priority list is instantly updated
	- to define a transparent background for a logo, use color value #FF00F6 - it gets automatically replaced by 	  	  	  background color
	- ... and because of that, the x3 default logo now has a transparent background and looks great even on changed 	  	  background colors
