modding

general discussion about modding. ANYTHING.

The xbox 360 gets alot of attention from modders cuz its so fricken easy. most modding is revolved around adding LED's, bigger hard drive, and a different case. while there are those who completely take their 360 off on a wild adventure.

you see Ben Heckingdom, I think thats his last name. He made 2 xbox 360 laptops. that is an example of extensive modding. its real nice, youtube it. It makes you jealous and wish you had one lol.

A real rediculous mod is the Wii laptop. ugh. its so small and why would u anyways. the wii requires a large amount of space, mostly.

so if you are into modding or want to see something done with a certain piece of hardware, list em and I might just be crazy enough to do em and send you feed back.

Re: modding

I thought you were talking about software modding, which I just recently got into... but I've never been to interested in modding consoles.. I don't have the time or money, nor do I see the point in doing said things. *shrugs* Seems like a waste of a $400 console to me..

Re: modding

Well, I just got into it.. so I'm mainly just doing some basic tweaking with the interface of games and such. I've yet to start doing anything serious, or any unit/map creation, etc. Maybe when I have more time(and I'm not too busy destroying people on GTA IV ) I'll look into it some more.

Re: modding

It is a really good area to get into because you become bette at creative thinking and problem solving. The more you do it, the more your imagination is able to run freely. LOL. If you want basic, I can line up stuff for Halo for the PC. very simple stuff, like copy and paste, easy. but it also goes very extensive hard. Like. for example, if you wanted to change what a gun shoots, then its copy/paste. if you want to add a veihcle into a map that doesn't have it, then its hex editing and whole bunch of other stuff.

Oh, photo editing in games are real easy to do. especially for halo. let me know and if you ever stop playing GTA IV , *shakes head* lmao,

anyone else, modding in regards to anything, could be your car, could be your toaster, (WTF?!?!?!), could be your computer, what ever you have

Re: modding

I'd really like to get into console modding but I don't own any consoles. My friend has an XBox but he'd never let me touch it because he believes I broke two PS2s.

The truth is that I repaired the first PS2, but the power ribbon snapped. So we sold it. The second PS2 had stripped screws, I never altered it. So we sold it.

I may make mention of the fact that I was both incredibly drunk and sleep-deprived when I attempted my alterations; I also think that's why he thinks I was irresponsible with the consoles. Anyway... I'd like to try again... maybe I'll take out my old Playstation and try to mod it.

Re: modding

yeah chaos, totally go for it. a simple mod is just adding LED's to it to make it look kool. Thats the purpose of modding. Maybe replace the case. Put the hardware into something that would confuse the hell outa someone.

lol, xbox case that has a ps1 in it. your friend would walk in and say hey, how about some xbox. You'd be like, no thats my ps1 and then things would be different lmfao

Re: modding

Wow, you're the first person to call me "chaos" on here.

That's significant because Chaos was my first screen name, about 14 years ago. The Emperor part arrived three years later.

-=-=-

No I wasn't saying mod my PS1 into an Xbox. I'd like to mod it to play burned games. I don't want to mod to make something look cool. I'd rather mod to make my console play something that I don't technically own. =P
