Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

After playing for a while, the game freezes. It usually happens on line or on two player mode. It was working ok at the beginning, but the first time it froze was on the story line game while fighting the joker... during the video the image froze and after reseting the game it fails frequently. Sometimes it freezes at the very beginning, it doesnt even load. Sometimes during the Load phase while choosing players. it is anoying and it is a mix of things, since all other games (Halo, Peggle, Viva Pi;ata, Quake) work just fine. What is wrong???

    Believe me I have tried all the "basic" and obvious stuff... and also you have many posts on this site about this from different users.

    I need expert advice since this is not a simple problem. And since there is a charge for this, I really expect a solution.

    Look, this question is not only posted by myself. I have problems with an XBox 360 game that my kid bought. Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe. The console is freezing, once every other while, sometime in minutes, sometime it takes hours... it happens only with this game and with no other. The first "expert" advice from FixYa was "clean the disk", do you guys really charge for that, of course I have cleaned the disk, I want to know what other information you need to help me out on this. Since there is a charge for it, I really hope not to get another "turn it off and on again" solution.

    The disk is new. No it is not scratched. The solution is obvious, anyone with a CD player, or game console since last century knows that the first thing to check for is scratches or damage to the read surface.

    You have several users posting the same question, with the same problem. That is the reason I was expecting a little more expertise on this specific problem... if all the solution to the problem is "you have to return the game", well gee... thanks for the expert advice.

Try cleaning the disk. If yhou don't have a machine for this, use a soft lint free cloth and gently wipe from inside to outside all around the disk a few times. Sounds like you're getting read errors.

    You didn't mention in the initial post that you had tried cleaning the disk. Unfortunately you have either a scratched, dirty, or defective disk. You are free to reject the solution if you feel it's too obvious but that's really all there is to work with on this one. If it's a new disk, try returning it to the store, other than that there's not much else to try.

    You can try using a mildly abrasive plastic cleaner very carefully and you might have some luck but it's very easy to damage the disk worse. If you do, be sure to get all of the cleaner off the disk before trying it back in the player.

Rules for dominoes

Players: Two, three or four may play the game of Dominoes. If four are playing the game, it may be played as a partnership (the two players sitting opposite one another are partners).
The Shuffle: To begin the dominoes are placed face down and "shuffled." Players draw one domino. The player drawing the highest double or if no double, the highest domino plays first. Re-shuffle and then begin drawing the first hand.
Drawing: Each player then draws seven dominoes for his hand. The remaining dominoes (the boneyard), if any, are left face down on the table to be drawn later if a player is unable to play from his hand.
Begin Play: The player who drew the highest double or the highest domino plays first, playing any domino he wishes from his had.
Object of the game: Scoring points by laying the dominoes end to end (the touching ends must match: i.e., one's touch one's, two's touch two's, etc.). If the dots on the exposed ends total any multiple of five the player is awarded that number of points. All sides of the first double (the spinner) may be used one piece to each side and later one to each end. All other doubles are played at right angles to the line and the total points on both ends are counted. Dominoing occurs when one player goes out by playing all of his dominoes. The sum of the spots of all opposing players is computed and added to the dominoing player's score (rounded to the nearest five). In partnership play the spots of the partner of the one who "DOMINOED" are not counted.
Blocking the Game: If in the course of the game it is impossible for any of the players to play, the game is "Blocked." The player (or partners) having the least spots in his (or their combined) hand(s) scores the total of the spots in the opponents' hands (rounded to the nearest five). The score of 250 points is usually considered a game. The first person (or partnership) to score this amount wins the game. Shuffle and begin a new game. The player who won plays first.

Wii's quantum of solace errors goeeting online and single player

This is what I had to do:
After it froze up, I turned off the wii by holding the power button for approx. 10 seconds. Then, I powered it back up and started Quantome of Solace. After loading my profile, instead of selecting 'continue', I selected 'chapter select' and it let me start from the chapter it was freezing on. It did not freeze this time during the intro movie. Hope that helps!!!

XBox 360 - freezing

i suggest unplugging the cat5 cable(the one that provides internet access) or remove the wifi adaptor and test if it runs good. if that doesn't work, then your problem lies with the actual xbox hardware. if it works, you have a very unstable internet connection.
