This is a problem with the DVD firmware, more than likely, if you mean that the Xbox 360 won't even read the disc. There is nothing you can do about that, you must get a JTAG system to hack games. DVD firmware just won't cut it to hack games.The Red Rooster wrote:When I try to change wrestler names in the chEtc.pac and then reburn, the disk always becomes unreadable, I assume this is because Im hex editing the compressed file but I am only replacing the characters in the names with other characters I am not adding any new letters so the name remains the same length.brienj wrote:Saves, as well as all content on the HDD, are in a format called STFS. When you change one byte, it corrupts the whole file, there are a bunch of hashes that must be fixed and then you have to resign the file.

One question, I am trying to change the names of in game characters. I am replacing the names with the exact same number of characters e.g. jtg - rvd. However when I make any changes to the save file, it gives me an error that the save file has been corrupted.
However, when I resign and use your save, it works perfectly. Do I need to rehash or resign my saves even though its on the same machine and same profile.
I have a custom program I made to change the save file, but it has some things in it that I don't want out, they could get me in legal problems, so no matter how much anyone asks, I won't give it out, sorry. If you want to change something, change it in the chEtc.pac file and you shouldn't have any problem, but you'll have to erase your old save, and it will make a new one for you.
Why does this not work? This is driving me insane (and Im wasting a lot of disks, any help would be greatly appreciated.
However, if I misunderstood what you said, and you mean that the game will not reflect any changes you made, then as per the PM you sent me, I assume you are using the same old save. However, the game won't read a new chEtc.pac after you've created a save file for your profile. This file is only read ONE time, and that is when it makes a new save. If I remember correctly, I even said this in the tutorial for that file. The only way to have the game read any changes you made, is to start the game without a profile, but this means you couldn't save the game, or you must delete your save before starting the game. If you did either of these, and the changes you did are still not reflected, that would mean that you did do something wrong, but it's doubtful you did.
