  1. Xbox 360 - new tracks - when should they be region code separated?

    Hi gamers,
    Before I start creating 360 tracks I need to know should I be creating NTSC and PAL tracks or are they considered the same now?

    There are Xbox 360 tracks created by Twin Galaxies that ARE separated by region. Revenge

    so I am tempted to do that for mine so it's consistent and hopefully will be available for GWR status.

    I could also invest more time before creating them and compare both versions to be sure there are differences. I will be using the composite 50Hz output for the games in PAL.

    Any thoughts about which way to go? Maybe these should be determined on a game by game basis.

    There are currently a few that have no region code which were created by members for Test Drive Unlimited, Forza 3, 4, and Horizon.

    Hi John,

    The choice is always in the hands of the variation creator. There was a move in 2009 to try to prevent the split for Xbox 360/PS3/Wii where possible. The old criteria for if a Xbox 360 should be split was whether the game has regional differences (like music choices per region).

    From a hardware view point, most PAL Xbox 360s natively offer PAL (50Hz), PAL-60, HDMI 50Hz and HDMI 59.9xHz. Many games for the PAL region even remove the PAL (50Hz) as a possibility - forcing Standard Def at PAL-60 (even when PAL (50Hz) is chosen).

    HTH. :)
