  1. Yes I followed steps for 105 two weeks ago and then had to do 102 after the restore. It looked ok afterwards until it died again this weekend. I will try and restore again tonight. Does replacing your hard drive void your warranty? Is it worth trying?
  2. No only an internal drive. Can you just install and boot off an external? I am also thinking it is hard drive failure.
  3. Watched a film last night on my xbox and then decided to play outer worlds this morning E105 again. Same as two weeks ago

    Xbox Game Pass

    Recently Hydro thunder hurricane was removed and I thought that was a first party title that Microsoft owned the rights to (according to Wikipedia they bought the Midway rights from Warner). I ended up buying it as it‘s a fun game but I can‘t see why it should have been removed.
  5. I had to reinstall my entire xbox 2 weeks ago as I had a system error on startup. I hadn't noticed anything strange (other than the sync of save files in the outer worlds taking a long time). IAfter the reinstall it seemed ok and everything cam back from the cloud. Cut to this morning and I got multipl issues with save game corruption with the outer worlds saying I had to delete my local saves whcih I did and started playing. After 10 minutes it just restarted and the next time just crashed. Then it wnet back to deleting saves again. Is this a sign my xbox has an issue? I'm afraid it may be. Unfortunately if so I think I'm out of warranty.
  6. I had sent a request yesteerday already and this morning they refunded it. Odd I found this article yesterday https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-04-12-microsoft-is-adding-self-service-refunds-for-digital-xbox-and-windows-10-games I can only guess they classed it under season pass in this case if it was rejected assuming you requested the refund within 14 days.
  7. This is what I see when purchasing the 360 version of the game. I had a look at my order history and there should be an option to request a refund but I don't see anything Xbox one games (and the pc games also) seem to instead refer to this https://www.microsoft.com/en-ie/storedocs/terms-of-sale?rtc=1 Under returns it looks promising until I read this I'm a bit confused as I thought they had introduced refunds for games on a self serivce basis. Still I will try in any case and see what they say
  8. I went to buy Hydro Thunder Hurricane in the store on Friday as it was leaving game pass and when I searched it brought back two results "Hydro Thunder Hurricane" for arcade and Tempest Pack for 360 which is a dlc. As the first one said it was included on game pass I assumed this was the correct version and purchased it. However when I went to play it this morning it showed on my xbox as if it had to be purchased. I double checked and it looks like I have purchased the pc version of "Hydro Thunder Hurricane" and the Xbox version of the same game is listed under "Hydro Thunder". I must admit it is my fault as I didn't look carefully enough on Friday and went in through the microsoft store rather than xbox. Is it really the case that no refund is possible with any games on the microsoft store? I just checked and still see the same on the microsoft store if I search for it. On the xbox store the correct version is listed but with the wrong name under the 360 games
  9. Will check this later. I went to buy it and realised i had it already. I loved Sensi on the amiga but on pc it's not the same with keyboard but still enjoyable.
  10. Is anyone else not able to buy Overlord 2 with games for gold this month? I picked up Prince of Persia: Sands of time based on the recommendations here so hope it's good.
  11. Problem is I can't add it to the cart as it only gives me the option to complete my collection for any options I can add to basket. In the section where it says buy as a gift for a friend I can only download a demo as you can see in the screenshot. I checked on Fallout new Vegas and there it looks fine as you say (i.e. I could purchase it for a friend) so it must be specific to Shadow of Tomb Raider perhaps because it wants me to buy the full collection. In any case I gave a gift card now which solves the problem. Thanks for the help.
  12. I thought I read the Sonic games were going on sale this week. Did I miss it? I'm mainly looking to get Mario and Sonic at the Olympics.
  13. Is it possible to buy a game you already have as a gift for someone else? I want to get Rise of the Tomb Raider but I don't seem to be able to purchase for a friend. This is from the website
  14. The bios version is 5838 which suggests 1.6. It was built in August 2004. The serial number doesn’t match the list I found here as the digits that are 5 and 4th last are 43 and the list seems to go to 42 https://www.xbox-hq.com/html/xbox-tutorials-228.html It is a crystal Xbox but it surprises me if it’s a 1.6 as I bought it second hand and it’s way louder than the original Xbox I bought new when they were selling them off. I will try and find my old Hexen disc to check or burn a new one but is the video chip the best way to check?
  15. I think it’s not but makes sense to check. I guess the hexen tool disc is the easiest way to check this (it’s already soft modded). I have another model in storage but I bought that at the end of Xbox so I assume that is a 1.6 model but will dig that out to check this week as well.
