  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. I had a search to see if there were wireless controllers for the original Xbox as my dog kept going to investigate the cables as I was playing SSX Tricky. I found the adapter for the 360 controller last night but if it works with the Xbox one controller then that‘s even better even if it needs multiple 8bitdo adapters (I skipped the 360 so have none of these controllers ). The only problem seems to be this adapter seems to be sold out currently.
  7. Does anyone know if it is safe to simply snap off the clock capacitor? I remember seeing one person saying you can move it back and forth until it snaps but can’t find it now and all the examples I found are using a soldering iron to desolder the capacitor. I will open my Xbox up tomorrow but I suspect it has leaked already.
  8. I have an old ps3 (not my main one) which I picked up with a bundle of games a long time ago. It's a fat model but I think not the first version (with ps2 emulation) but has an old firmware. If I replace the disk with a larger disk will it automatically install the same firmware version. (I did update my original ps3 years ago but don't remember what happened in that case) I may softmod it but if so will it also be able to play ps2 games?
  9. I double checked and I only have paypal. I have definitely picked up 360 games on my pc for the xbox one in the past (and I think also from the console). In this case it seems to be a problem with the store in Ireland https://marketplace.xbox.com/en-ie/Product/Midway-Arcade-Origins/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d8025752082f I checked most other regions and all of them had a price. On the pc when you go there I can see no price so cannot purchase (for ther 360 games a price is shown). When I try on my xbox it after see price it shows the screen to buy but with no price. When you click buy it says this offer is not available in your region (or words to that effect).
  10. I have paypal setup and have also bought 360 games before. I was just coming to ask basically the same question regarding the Midway collection as I also can't buy it. It seems the offer is only available in the US. Can you switch regions easily on xbox?
  11. I don’t think you can unfortunately. I had the same as I had a wii u and 3ds but no switch and couldn’t buy any eshop games for the switch.
  12. 24 hours to be on the safe side. I think it can live that long on cardboard. Plastic and glass it can last up to 3 days apparently. Out of interest did you get a tracking mail from Kickstarter when it was sent out?
  13. Glad it worked out. I found him very helpful as well when I contacted him back at the start of the kickstarter.
  14. I'm still waiting on mine as well. Good to know I'm not the only one.
  15. I guess you could ask to change the delivery address? It may be too late but it’s worth a try. In the bigger picture though I could imagine the last next deliveries could be delayed due to everything going on at the moment.
