Question about Microsoft Gears of War for Xbox 360

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.

My gears of war 2 matchmaking keeps on searching for players????? please help


Gears of War 2 is a fairly old game, so the online community is dwindling, at this time of day it is midday in most parts of the united states, which is the main player base, so you will have to wait until its is later in the evening there for players to show up.

Tip

Complete Insane Easily


When playing Gears of War 2 it is possible for two players to play together in co op. This alone increases your chances of surviving as your friend is better (hopefully) than the computer AI. However it is also possible for you to play on separate difficaulties. Getting your partner to play on casual while you play on insane insures you will have a much easieir time completing the game.
