Mercenaries 2 freezing on XBOX 360

Mercenaries 2 at odd times throughout game play will freeze randomly, I have D/L to hard drive, deleted previous saves (Just in case corrupt) I have cleaned disk with soft cloth, no liquid, and I have swapped out disks from the store and repeated all the above.

Now I know the first instinct is to say the XBOX is malfunctioning but every other game I have works perfectly. There have been some games that did not work well strictly from disk, but after D/L them to hard drive work just fine, Gear of War 2 is an example, I still play it no prbs. Is there a known issue with this game and platforms? or what else can I do to solve this problem?

I have the direct 2 drive version Mf mercs 2 on the Xbox 360. and it still freezes constantly. The odd thing is, is that it freezes a lot less when I'm not connected to Xbox Live... Strange isnt it?

Hello
Delete any saved game files from your x box hard drive.Unplug x box for 5 min.
Plug back in and power up.
Try game again.
Chances are files have become corrupt.Also delete any files from GOW 1 and 2.

Game freezes up on 360xbox


If your game is freezing, it is most likely due to your game being scratched or otherwise damaged. Sometimes, a game can become damaged without you even realizing it. There are two ways to fix this.

1) (Obviously) Buy a new game.

If you don't want to go through the hassle, and would rather just get a fresh copy, go do it. Also, if your hard drive is relatively small or nearly full, I would recommend this.

2) Install the game to your hard drive.
The Xbox 360 has a feature that allows you to install a game to your hard drive. By doing this, the Xbox will run everything from your hard drive, which will make a scratched game no problem. You still need to have the game in the Xbox for it to start, however (anti-piracy measure). Installing is easy. Go to the dashboard, and scroll to where you would normally start the game from. But instead of pressing A to play the game, press Y on it and you should have the option to install it.

Note 1: If you can't install the game fully because it is so badly damaged, borrowing a friends or renting a copy and installing that one will work fine also. As long as you can start the game, you will be fine and freeze-ups will go away.

Note 2: If you have installed the game and it's still freezing, the problem is your hard drive. Some hard drives don't play well with some games, for an odd reason. To test this, try saving and loading the game from a USB flash drive. If it doesn't freeze, just continue to play on the flash drive. You can transfer all of data for the game onto your flash drive from the memory options in system settings.

Fallout 3 xbox 360 freeze


If your playing on a disk clean the disk with clean cotton or a clean cotton clothe and the disk reader with a vacuum with brush head. Installing it on a hard disk would also sometimes prevent the game from frequently freezing. Freezing randomly or at a certain scene is a glitch on the game. Hopefully it will be patched soon.

Game freezes after playing for a while but no red rings appear


Games freeze for two reasons. Overheating and the hard drive locking up. If you have your games installed, you most likely eliminated the overheating problem.

Since you are not getting Red Ring, it probably isn't overheating. That leaves the hard drive. Turn of the console and unplug it. Remove the hard drive. Now is a good time to clean any dust from the connectors or vents. Reattach and play. Some games like Fable 2, Fallout 3, and others are more prone to freezing when accessing the hard drive that others. If it is freezing more times than not, you have an issue with the hard drive.

I have two broken 360's, one that randomly freezes and one with the one red light and E 74 error. I need help fixing the scaler chip


for the one that randomly freezes. have you treid using it without the hard drive? if yes and it happens to all games then you have to send it to microsoft. if it does not freeze when the hard drive is out then it just have something to do with the memory on certain games or the gamer profile. for the one with e74, if it still has that without the hard drive then you should send it to microsoft nad you have a 3 year warranty for that,.

You will be asked if you want to perform maintenance on your hard drive and delete all patches.select yes I hope this helps

Xbox 360 Freezing Problems


Shutting off the Xbox corrupted the Hard Drive... Have you ever got a Live System Update? You can also reset your Xbox without shutting it off using the controller. You probably have the Three Red Rings of Death... Go to this...

Xbox 360 freezing


There are two possible solutions to this issue. One the data that you downloaded either got corrupted during transfer somehow or during a resent save. You should delete all the iformation off your hard drive and start fresh. If this doesnt work try takeing off your hard drive and playing a game if it deosnt freeze you will need to either try the delete method or get a new HD.

If this doesnt solve your issue then it is very possible that your system is headed for the red rings of death. My system was fried after i had played assasins creed. It would freeze up and create this checker pattern on my back ground my system shortly after went red ring.
