Microsoft support told me that I might be able to use a converter that will allow for mono sound. Does anyone have experience with stereo to mono converters? The person I spoke to said she could not guarantee that the sound would come through both earphones and not just one.

Hi,

If I understand correctly, mono is the term for audio where identical information is sent to both speakers. I like to use headphones when I play and for some reason the jumping of the sound from ear to ear bothers me. I read somewhere online that the white video cable is mono, but I'm using hdmi so I don't know how that would work. I can't find it in the audio system settings either.

Is there any way to use mono sound on the xbox 360?

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm considering getting a 1080p hd tv for xbox 360 games but am wondering why people spend money for larger televisions if the resolution is the same. I wouldn't mind sitting very close to the tv in order to see the minute detail on a 24'' tv. Does anyone have experience with large vs small tvs with xbox games when they are both 1080p?

I really don't know where else to ask this question. I think it is loosely related to the xbox so I hope this topic doesn't get taken down.

Thanks.

Hi,

I used the nvidia control panel to add anti-aliasing to the game but whenever I do this it makes the mini map as well as the health bars on units and structures a bit blurry.  The game looks a lot better otherwise and the aa is still worth it but has anyone had experience with this issue? I guess blizzard didn't want people to add aa since it isn't even in the graphics options.  

 

Thanks

Hi,

I had 1600 microsoft points on my account and decided to download the Fenix Rising pack thinking that was all I needed to play on dedicated servers.  However, it said I also needed the Forces of Nature map pack.  I have enough points for both of those, but is there any other dlc I need besides the Fenix Rising and Forces of Nature (I got the Booster one because it was free) map packs? If there is, I might have just wasted 10 bucks because I'm not spending more than 20 on this.

 

Thanks.

Hey everyone,

I got Halo: Reach around launch, and when I first played it, I hated it because they got rid of weapons, drop items, and dual-wielding from earlier Halo games. I played a little bit of the multiplayer but frankly couldn't stand it because of these flaws. However, this summer I started playing it again and all of a sudden I'm starting to like it. However, there are a lot less people playing now and I'm afraid I missed the opportunity of playing it when it was really popular. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Just wondering.

Thanks

Hi,

I previous computer's motherboard got fried so now I'm copying over my pc games onto a new computer. I've misplaced the instruction booklet to one game, Dragon Age: Origins, and was wondering if I could find the CD key (originally on the booklet) somewhere on my old hard drive.

Thanks in advance.

I forgot to add that yesterday I had troubles getting the disc tray to OPEN but after restarting it several times it worked.

Hi,

After having a laser burning problem with my 360 in May of last year and receiving a new system under warranty, I haven't had any problems with it until now. However, immediately after exiting to the dashboard while playing a game, the green light in the middle of the power button started to blink constantly and the disc tray opened whenever I attempted to close it. No matter what I do the system seems to be stuck in this strange state. Sometimes the disc tray remains closed and makes a single tick noise and then opens several seconods later. Whenever I turn off the system the loud power adapter (the big brick thing) will not become silent and the disc tray will eventually open. The only way to turn it off is to pull the power plug. I've seen some instructional videos suggesting to push the tray in with a game inside in order to force it to read the disc. Another showed a 360 with the outside cover taken off and showed that pulling up on a spindle that is supposed to keep the disc tray in place will fix the problem. I am worried that I might damage my 360 by using these methods and also do not know how to take the cover off. Has anyone had this problem and/or knows a likely fix? I bought my xbox in October of 2009 and had it fixed under warranty in may of 2010. I don't believe I can get it fixed for free now.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks so much. The slim controller feels different to me so I was worried that it would only work with slim consoles.
