Chapter 5: Installing SID on your Xbox

Copying the Gamesave to your Memory Card / USB Device

The most popular ways to install the Gamesave are the following:

Action Replay: US Official Website - European Official Website Mega X-Key: Official Website

Just a quick tip about memory cards, reports have come in about 3rd-party cards not working properly, you can check the Xbox-Hq Memory Card Database for more information. The most reliable way would be a Mega X-Key in my opinion, which uses the same format as Action Replay for Gamesave.

To copy the game save over to your device, these programs support the drag and drop feature just like Windows. So, open your desired program and then drag and drop the .zip or .gsx file to the memory card. In about half a minute or so it should be done.

There are 5 files in the SID package, you will need to transfer TWO of these to your Xbox (this is a little different from the older SID systems so please beware). You need the main installer file, and the Gamesave for the game you wish to use. Here’s what the files do:

SID5.Installer ................................................. <- The main Installer
SID5.Loader.007AUF ....................................... <- Loader for 007 Agent Under Fire
SID5.Loader.Mechassault ................................. <- Loader for Mechassault
SID5.Loader.SplinterCell.NTSC ......................... <- Loader for Splinter Cell (NTSC Version)
SID5.Loader.SplinterCell.PAL ............................ <- Loader for Splinter Cell (PAL Version)

Copying the Gamesave to your Xbox

Insert your USB Device or memory card into your Xbox before you start it up. Once you’ve started your Xbox, the MS dashboard should appear.

1) Click on the Memory button on your Xbox Dash,
and press A.

4) Choose the copy icon (as shown in the images below) and press A to copy the Gamesave you have selected to the Xbox. We are using 007 as an example. Be sure to check your Xbox region if you are using Splinter Cell. Eg. NTSC/PAL.

Select the Xbox Hard Disk and Press A</a></font>

5) Once you have successfully copied over all required Gamesave to your Xbox HDD you can now continue to boot the original game (007, Mechassault, or Splinter Cell) and install your Softmod. Restart your Xbox and load the game of your choice into your Xbox DVD-Rom drive.
