alrighty... im trying to find out how to save games on the xbox system? I have never played it before, but the g/f got one for xmas and she can't figure out how to save games, particularly blinx time sweeper?? and lord of the rings return of the king. she says she's tried everything. i looked online and i cna't find anything on how to save games on xbox systems or individual games... what all is required to save games?? i dont even think she has a memory card.

when u play the game just save it. like during game play you can pause save game blah blah blah. its not hard dude really. if ur talking about taking the game and BURNING the game to ur xbox so say you have lord of the rings and blinx saved on ur box you can play the game w/out inserting the game disc itself. you cant do unless u mod ur xbox to a larger hard drive witch is possible. but just saving the game in general to keep ur game up-to-date pause save game.

the actual game or just saving as in check points in the game.

p.s. you don't need a memory card for the xbox it has a built in harddrive

also some games require you to manually save games in the options menu.

the only thing with that is that you won't be able to get on xbox live when you mod you HD. you will be banned instantly.

i've never played xbox, but i guess my question is how do you get to that option menu?? when she's beaten a level she always has to restart over when she powers up the system again because she doesn't know how to save the games... we're not trying to burn to cd or anything, just be able to resume the games at a later time.

someone tell me how to get to the save menu/options menu via xbox?

its the the little black button on the left hand side of the controller. that says "start"

but most games incorporate the auto-save feature on thier games. so yeah..

i'll have to try that button... that takes you to the options menu right? if the game has autosave, how do you load saved games then?? just in case it saved them and she didnt know about it? (im a PS2 person myself). never even seen an xbox hahaha

its the same way you do it with a ps2.

it sometimes loads them automatically or you just go to the "load game" part when you first insert the game. Really its not hard at all.

If not refer to you game's manual if you have trouble.

the games manual says absolutely nothing about saving/loading... neither of them do. Those I did look at, I even checked on their websites and still nothing. I'll have to give it a shot later...

maybe you should give your xbox to someone who knows what they're doing then? I seriously doubt its THAT hard to find where to save/load games is, just takes some common sense to find it...

ok some games will only let you save at certain spots in the game. So you may just have to wait till you get to that point.

Hahaha, I had my 120 gig for a long long time, but eventually I ran out of space. Lasted me a good 2 years or so before I ran out of room. If that 400 gig Seagate wasn't on special on black friday of last year, I probably wouldn't have gotten it.

Remember, I always told you I am not a Fanboy, :p you have me confused. More or less I'm doing this for work purposes. We currently only have one Debug Xbox console, and I need another console to play my Preview builds when I leave on business and our Debug has to stay. So I'm going to mod it in order to play them. But I'm no fan boy :p As many think for god knows what reason... :confused
