Question about Microsoft Gears of War for Xbox 360

1 Answer

Gears of war 2 graphics and memory

Ok.. so i just got an hdmi cable and set it up and evorything.. and i noticed that when i play online or splitscreen, when player characters get further away from view they start to change to a base color, and loose detail. for the cogs they start to turn a more glowing blue.. and for the locusts they start to turn a more glowing red.. now i thought that this might have something to do with the hdmi color spacing so i tried evory setting and its still the same.. now i also, for some reason, lost all my Flashback Players Choice map pack when i'm offline, but as soon as i sign in i can choose to play the flashbacks players choice. i have a hunch that both of these problems are connected somehow, which is why i posted them as one... if not then tips for either would be of great help.. thanks

The reason you're having issues with the Flashback Map Pack is due to MS wanting to authorize the content, why they still want to authorize it after you've purchased I'm not certain, have you played on all the maps?

The reason for characters getting muddy could be part of Unreal Engine 3, I've never noticed it as characters get farther away, only when a game is loading. I would find a basic TV calibration tool such as on Halo 3 or on any THX/Pixar movie. It could be an issue with your TV set. Hope this helps.

    Sorry, MS is Microsoft. A TV calibration is a DVD that will help you set your sharpness, brightness, contrast, etc. for the best picture quality. In a THX certified movie, like any Star Wars or Pixar movie, it will be in the options or special features menu and be called the THX optimizer. Otherwise you'll have to shop online for Digital Video Essentials (DVE) or AVIA Home Calibration.

Where can I get cheats for the Star wars games without being noticed by the Anti Cheat providers?

To dominate online on one of my most favourite games, Star wars I always choose to check out the help of some tools for the same. The Star Wars Battlefront 2 Hack has given me a better hold on this game and also, it has a dead simple set up, wherein it is so easy to use software, load cheats, and demolish your opponents in just a few seconds. With these cheats, I noticed that the opponents are even not getting an idea of what they really are hitting them down. So I think this is really a good option to try on these games!.

When i play gears of war 2 on my profile it freezes at the main menu but it will play on every other profile.

Go to memory from System Settings. Check the data from GoW 2 and check if any data is corrupted. If there is any, just delete it and you should be good to go.
