We're happy to announce that starting immediately, a new title update for Crackdown is available on Xbox Live that will enable downloading of the Halo 3 Beta. Also, as a consolation for lost time and inconvenience, we are extending the Halo 3 Beta end date to Sunday, 6/10, at 11:59 PM PDT.

Call of Duty 4: New Downloadable Maps - Sneak Peek?

Call of Duty 4: New Downloadable Maps - Sneak Peek?
Published by: forahobby on Thursday, February 21, 2008
Tagged: Gaming, Live Marketplace, Xbox 360,

We all know Activision and Infinity Ward have been working on new Downloadable Content (DLC) and a patch for the hottest game of the year Call of Duty 4 but will all your hopes and dreams be answered with the next update??.

Now we are sure that you all have your own wish lists and fixes for "Call of Duty 4" but if some news sources are to be believed three (3) of the first new maps due will be easily recognized by most people who have played the single player campaign.

Below we will show you some un-confirmed pics of the multi-player loading screens from in-game which are rumoured to be the new upcoming maps (DLC).

Rumoured COD4 Maps:


With the release of the new PC editor I would say that these maps could be fake since anyone with a PC and the COD 4 map editor could make whatever they like. I guess we will just have to wait and see.


As always, for all the latest info on Call of Duty 4 stay tuned to 360-hq.com and track cod4 via our Xbox 360 Games Database.

A big thanks to "oStealthASSASIN" for the heads up..

XeXMenu v1.0 - A Dashboard for Xbox 360 Homebrew

XeXMenu v1.0 - A Dashboard for Xbox 360 Homebrew
Published by: forahobby on Sunday, January 24, 2010
Tagged: Homebrew, Xbox 360,

Team XeDEV have just released their new homebrew Xbox360 dashboard with FTP support and many more features.

You might be wondering why it's XeDEV who are releasing this.. Since some people left the team, they don't want to retain the "freexex" name anymore. Also changed the name to XeXmenu (this is because XeXLoader is now much more of a menu than just a loader). So enjoy the new stuff :

What's news/fixed:
- Gametitle extraction from NXEART if possible (toggle)
- Games with more than just one XEX will show up multiple times
* Embedded FTP Server to transfer your stuff directly from your computer
- Use xbox:xbox@ip:21
* Use FTP to read/write/delete your onboard flash
- Only user flash/flash is able to do that!
* Support for all found XEX files. Not just default.xex (toggle)
* Shows the content of any GAMES folder on any device
- Use GAMES, APPLICATIONS, EMULATORS for auto discovery menu on each device
* Switch between games/apps/emus in the discovery menu using RB/LB
* Auto scale skins for most resolutions (toggle)
* Different help screens for each menu
* Use DPad to switch between devices while browsing files
* Xbox1 compatibility partition support (if exists)
- Xbox1 partition known as "HddX"
* Alphanumeric listing for files
* No more XEX auto patching when copying DVDs
* Manual XEX patching for freeBOOT users
* Configuration menu
* Real XBox save system for the configuration
- Gamesave known as "Unkown Xbox Game"
* Chose between different skins from the configuration menu
* Support for own skins
* many more things we can't remember

Press "BACK" for detailed help pages!

Note: If you only get a black screen on startup try to delete the XeXmenu savegame known as "Unknown Xbox Game" using system tab in dash.

There are some issues with the FTP upload speed for some people at the moment. We're still working on that. This will be fixed in further releases!

''Guitar Hero 3'' robot plays ''Fire and Flames'' on Expert 100%

''Guitar Hero 3'' robot plays ''Fire and Flames'' on Expert 100%
Published by: forahobby on Wednesday, February 27, 2008
Tagged: Gaming, Homebrew, Xbox 360,

Looks like there is a new rock god on the Guitar Hero block.. A bot getting 100% (FC) on Through the Fire and Flames with a final score of 983,802.

A video has recently been posted on youtube of a bot (robot) which can be programmed to play all Guitar Hero Songs 100% in expert mode even using the whammy bar to help maximize it's score. Not a simple task for your average human!


Check out the video below of the bot playing "Through the Fire and Flames" and getting 100%.

For those that don't know, a bot (short for robot) is a device/program that will automatically play Guitar Hero based on how it was programmed. This bot was made by modifying an Xbox 360 controller and wiring it up to a microcontroller.



Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long did it take to build this and get it working?
A: I had something functional (see last video) in around 1 week. To get this fully working, it took around 2 months of working on it on and off.

Q: What system is this for?
A: This is for the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero 3 (although untested, it will most likely work for GH1 and GH2 also)

Q: Do you play on Xbox Live?
A: I have an Xbox Live account however I have NO plans on taking this bot on there just for the sake of cheating the high scores.

Q: Why would you build this to cheat?
A: The challenge of this project was making a Guitar Hero playing robot, which I assure you was anything but easy. The point was not to cheat, but to build a functioning robot, at which I feel I have succeeded.

Q: How did you get this bot?
A: I built it.

Q: What does the robot look like?
A: A high quality video will be posted when I get off my lazy ass.

A lot of people have requested I make a video of the bot doing The Devil Went Down To Georgia. I would be willing to make this video, however, I would need a copy of the note chart for this song. Because it is DLC, I can't get a copy off the DVD of the game. If anyone has access to their Xbox 360 Hard Drive and is willing to send me the file I need, please private message me. The file I need is most likely called "tdwdtg.mid.qb.xen" or "tdwdtg_song.pak.xen" or something similar.
