  1. Hmmm, Yeah, this is a side project. I've been working on my game project (my full time job) for more than a year now and it's been a little fruitless. So i figured a little cash was needed to balance out the expenses. Anyway, back to the point, it seems i may be over charging a bit. Check the new pricing structure above. I hope more people are satisfied, although i know it's hard to make everyone happy. I don't expect to make much so i don't need to worry about VAT, and i'm also not expecting to reach the first milestone to have to pay any income tax. That said i'm getting advice from my parents (who run their own businesses) and making sure i'm doing everything by the books
  2. Hi guys, I've actually come across a situation where i haven't been sure about what to do even before opening the Xbox 360. So i've made it a rule that i will give back the £15 if i am completely stumped about the error. In this sort of a situation I will get back to the owner and discuss what's best. In most cases it's probably going to be either get is repaired by Microsoft, someone else or buy a new Xbox 360 . On a similar note, Microsoft have said that the new Slim model can't red ring by design... maybe it's a different colour About the percentage thing, i'd say 97% and 98% are near 100%. Also, Executer have advertised their product to work at 98% of the time. If you can show me otherwise, i think i'll stick to near 100% success rate. When my Xbox 360 died a couple of months back, i was looking for ways of getting it fixed and there wasn't anyone to help back then. So i found a little market for my own repair business . I'm not here to rip people off, i'm trying to be as fair as possible and I give plenty of information and warning every step of the way.
  3. With the X-Pro the parts that i use are completely different from the parts i use in the X-light and Basic packages. The X-Pro parts have all been tested and calibrated by the manufacturer specifically for the job of fixing the Xbox 360's rrod errors. It also comes with heat sinks which help stop most E74 errors (the one light in the ring). It also comes with a metallic compound (silvery grey colour). The parts used in the Basic and X-Light packages are still built and manufactured so that they can withstand the high temperatures and are of the right sizes for the fix but they're off the shelf parts, plus there are no extra heat sinks and i use a ceramic and silicone based compound.
  4. Hi all, I've (re)worked out the pricing for the rrod fix. You will also have to choose a package that you would like for your X360. If the fix is unsuccessful then you will pay nothing. Basic - £25 X-Light - £30 X-Pro - £45 I have used the Pro package on my own X360. The X-Pro comes with a few extras that will help stop most E74 errors. If it is a genuine rrod problem (i.e. no internal/external damages due to water spillage etc) then all the packages have around 100% chance of the fix working! The main difference in the packages is that the chances of further issues in the future are reduced on the X-Light and X-Pro packages. Terms and Conditions: 1. I'm not liable to any damages caused to your Xbox 360 or you. 2. In most cases this fix is a better fix than what Microsoft will do but in some cases it can also be less affective. 3. This fix comes with a one month warranty. 4. If i find that your Xbox 360 has already been tampered with (i.e. attempted fix before; has a mod chip installed; has other internal damages; has external damages; or the Microsoft's warranty sticker has been tampered with) before i do the fix then i will not be able to give you the one month warranty even if i am able to fix your Xbox 360. 5. In the case where the X360 rrods again (within in the warranty period) then i will either fix it again or refund the full amount for the original service. If you or anybody else tampers with the Xbox 360 within the warranty period then the warranty will be void. 6. If Microsoft/LIVE has not banned your Xbox 360 from Xbox LIVE then i will do a check after to make sure that this is still the case. PLEASE DO A QUICK XBOX LIVE TEST BEFORE YOU GIVE ME THE XBOX 360 AND TELL ME IF IT WORKS ON XBOX LIVE.
  5. Hi all, I've worked out the pricing for the rrod fix. There is an up front fee of £15. You will also have to choose a package that you would like for your X360. If the fix is successful you will then have to pay the remainder. If the fix is unsuccessful then you will pay nothing extra. Basic - £15 up front fee - £15 extra for the successful fix Total: (if successful fix) £30 X-Light - £15 up front fee - £20 extra for the successful fix Total: (if successful fix) £35 X-Pro - £15 up front fee - £35 extra for the successful fix Total: (if successful fix) £50 I have used the Pro package on my own X360. The X-Pro comes with a few extras that will help stop most E74 errors. If it is a genuine rrod problem (i.e. no internal/external damages due to water spillage etc) then all the packages have around 100% chance of the fix working!

If you or anybody else tampers with the Xbox 360 within the warranty period then the warranty will be void. 6. If Microsoft/LIVE has not banned your Xbox 360 from Xbox LIVE then i will do a check before and after to make sure that this is still the case. PLEASE DO A QUICK XBOX LIVE TEST BEFORE YOU GIVE ME THE XBOX 360 AND TELL ME IF IT WORKS ON XBOX LIVE. If you are unable to do the test yourself and i find that Microsoft/LIVE has blocked your xbox 360 then i will confirm this with you before i do the fix.
  6. Hi all, If you have a Xbox 360 which is out of warranty and has got the 3 red ring of death (rrod) error then i'm willing to help repair the X360 for a small price. I say it's worth it since you've got nothing to loose, rather a very good chance that it will come back to working order. After the fix, LIVE will still function properly! I will not install mod chips. Msg me here or send me an e-mail at ankur@manx.net and we can discuss your X360's situation. Hank out.

  8. Hi Loda, sounds like you also need to meet up and meet the IOM game developing community. Would you be up for meeting up sometime after the 15th of June? Where can we see and find out more about your released project?
  9. Hi xan, Welcome to the Isle of Man! You seem to have a lot of games development experience under your belt, so i think you'll be indulging us with games industry stories Well, i'm going to suggest that all the people who are interested in games developing meet up sometime soon. I'll be free after the 15th of June, so maybe sometime on the 19th or 20th of June? Not sure where we should meet.
  10. I've worked at BigBig Studios, where i worked as a mission designer on Pursuit Force 2. I've also worked at a company in India but things weren't moving as smoothly as i'd hoped and i felt like i was wasting my time. I've done a few small games but they were part of degree course so i don't really like to count them as finished products. Now i'm working on a 3D platformer with elemental powers; earth, fire, water etc. I'm hoping to make it as engaging as Portal by Valve, so i'm putting a lot of effort into the design side of things. Unfortunately i don't have any thing to show yet because i'm still in the middle of programming it. I've gone through a few different game designs to get to where i am now and this feels more of a winner than the other ideas i had. You can check a of a game that i started on but stopped after realising that other people have and are working on the same idea, but i might still use it for a future projects still. It feels like a perfect time to work on my own project as well as try and make money from my own games, plus, if all else fails i can always try for a job at another games company. Yeah i figured that out after posting . I might post there too.
  11. Hi all, I'm an independent games developer for the PC, Xbox 360 and Windows 7 mobile. I may venture into the unknown territory of HTML5 and Android games development too. I was wondering if anyone else is developing games on the island. It'd be great to meet up one day (like an IDGA chapter event, which I miss from my Sony days), discuss games development things, gaming in general and even help each other out. I'd be happy to help discuss ways in which people can get involved in games development too.
  12. Wow, looking forward to this! I really liked Clover Field and LOST.
