Tried it with the UK account and changed the store like you said, and finally got it.

 

Thanks everyone for the help

My Cyberpunk controller arrived this morning. I know it’s not to everybody’s taste but I think it’s lovely!

Not done this but can't see any reason why you couldn't do it, the analogue module the sticks sit on are identical and the holes in the front shell look the same size too.

 

All you'd need to do it is a T8 security torx driver and a plastic spudger to lever the rear grips off. Couple of quid from ebay if you don't already have them. 

 

What's up with the Elite pad, just out of interest?

----

 

I picked up another couple of broken controllers recently to fix up so thought I'd have a play with some vinyl wrap. Tricky to apply and you need a decent heat gun and a lot of patience but the results are pretty good. The vinyl is a textured turquoise/purple colour flip. Have some clear thumbsticks on the way to go with this one:

The thumbsticks I'd ordered for this *finally* arrived today!

 

In the meantime, I'd set about butchering two other partially working controllers I'd picked up recently (analogue stick board was knackered on one and the d-pad + LB broken on another), to make one good one, so took the analogue board out of one and put it into the other. All that was needed for this was was to open them up, de-solder two wires on either side that power the rumble motors inside the triggers (grey+black in the images), unclip the bluetooth controller (small black wire with gold-plated end surrounded by the orange film) and unscrew one T6 screw on each side, then screw and solder the replacement in. I bought a camo front shell and some gunmetal thumbsticks for this one:

(This pad must've originally been dropped and landed right on the left stick, the PCB is bent and there's a crack right under the stick module)

And the vinyl wrap pad back together:

Glad it’s not just me. I even used my iPhone as a hotspot to check as I get faster speeds over 4G than my home internet and it still useless. 
 

Massive call of duty updates for very little extra content are even more frustrating!

Hey peeps,

 

Does anyone have any recommendations for wireless / bluetooth headsets for the xbox one? They especially need to be child friendly, as my kid as destroyed two wired ones already.

I guess not a massive amount of money, as he is 7 and treats hardware like crap. :unsure:

 

I actually don't know whether that is reasonable seeing as they are wireless. I just didn't want wired as he has broken two 2.5mm jack connectors. Maybe USB might be a better option?

 

That said, those look really nice.

If he's that destructive you might be better off with something else? There's supposed to be rework of the official headset soon with higher quality parts/construction. No idea how soon until it's formally announced though.

A rhythm action fps coming to PC and Xbox this year, Interesting concept:

I'm surprised they don't do an official surround pair like Sony do for the PS4. I'd buy them if they weren't too expensive.

Nice! The official one's only stereo though, isn't it? I've got decent wireless stereo headphones I can use already.

Has anybody taken the plunge with Daymare:1998 (the Resident Evil "homage")? Apparently it was made by the team that were working on releasing a version of the unreleased Resident Evil 2 original? (I have those details slightly wrong) It looks janky as hell, but I'm a sucker for some jank on occasion.

You don’t need them. Set output to Windows Sonic and you get surround sound through any stereo cans.

I reviewed the PC version (think they've tightened up some of my complaints since) last year: https://www.thesixthaxis.com/2019/09/18/daymare-1998-review/ 

It's worth a play if you're prepared to work through the jank; and makes a really interesting comparison to the Resident Evil Remakes.

Oh, one final thing while I've had these controllers apart...

 

I've read quite a few reports of of the 3.5mm headset sockets stopping working (and it was knackered on one of my own). The 3.5mm socket is just sandwiched between the two PCBs, it's not hard-wired (it comes loose as soon as you prise the two PCBs apart), there are 7 springs on the bottom of the unit that line up with 7 contact points on the board, you can see them here:

 

3.5mmsocketissue.thumb.jpg.2c1a2a0de1a264d0f608ac9e36b0e676.jpg

 

3.5mmsocketissue2.thumb.jpg.b8c89e2967441313a5b1574a330a21bd.jpg

 

 

Not sure why it's been done like that but issues are most likely caused when the springiness reduces against the contact points. This setup does however make it pretty simple to replace the unit, and there is enough give in the wires soldered to both boards that you don't actually need to de-solder anything to replace it. You can buy the replacement 3.5mm socket on ebay for a couple of quid.

First World Problem moan: Why is it cheaper to buy the Deluxe edition of Strange Brigade than it is just the season pass? If I could gift the game that comes in the deluxe edition I'd buy it but it seems like a bloody waste to make someone buy a game they already have to get the Season Pass cheaper. It's like Fallout 4. the Goty is always cheaper in the sales than the season pass on it's own.

You know why. It's not a mistake, they've thought this through. You're already on the hook with the vanilla game, so you're more likely to be interested in the season pass at higher price. But if you couldn't be arsed with the vanilla game, well then we'll have to make it look extra enticing for you.

I expect it from Bethesda, I just thought Rebellion was one of the good guys. Well as much of a good guy as a corporation can be.

On my MS account i have both my kids under my Family. When the boy signs in and plays i can too (his box is the Primary one) yet when my daughter signs in she has to sign me in too, so i get signed out elsewhere (especially annoying when i have just fired up Titanfall 2 for the first time in months and are doing pretty damn well).

 

What is the reason for this, and what can i do to change it? Is it because of her age (9) and would making my Xbox the Primary one cure this terrible sequence of events?

All your games will be playable on your account’s Home Xbox no matter who is signed in.

 

To work it out I’ll need a diagram of where your Xboxes are, who wants to play what and which account owns the games that each person wants to play!
