    Top Spin 2

    Just brought this game for the 360 from someone on here. I wacked the game into my console which is connected to my HD screen but it gave me the message that it can't run as it needs PAL 50.

    Any fix for this?

    Hey Nick,

    There is a fix for the above mentioned problem. A few older 360 games ran into this problem where they didn't check if the user was using a HD screen, if he was the PAL50 or PAL60 was irrelivant. Anyhow...!

    Try this:
    To set your Xbox 360 console to PAL 60 Hz, follow these steps: 1. Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
    2. Find the HDTV switch on the AV Connector, and then set the switch to TV.
    3. Turn on the Xbox 360 console.
    4. In the Xbox Dashboard, select System, and then press the A button.
    5. Select Console Settings, and then press the A button.
    6. Select Display, and then press the A button.
    7. Select PAL settings, and then press the A button.
    8. Select PAL-60, and then press the A button.
    9. When you are prompted to keep these new settings, confirm the settings, and then press the A button.
    10. Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
    11. Set the HDTV switch on the AV Connector to HDTV.

    also, if your using a VGA cable, you'll need to swap it out for the AV cable that came with your X-box as the option doesn't appear with the VGA cable installed. Once you've changed the setting you can swap the cables back.

    edit: just out of interest PAL 50 or PAL 60? PAL 50 seems a little odd. If it's PAL 50 do as Parm says above but select PAL-50 instead.
