DVD troubles.... :(

okay, here's my problem. I bought the Stat Wars OT DVD last weekend, and I can't find the battlefront demo. all it gives me is a trailer of it. I want to ask you guys though, does it show different things if its in a DVD player, or in your computer? Cause my DVD is region three, but my computer is still set to region one. And since I can only change it three times I don't want to change it un-neccisarily (sp?). so, if you guys could help I really want to play this demo


If its on my DVD at all...

is it possible to make the xbox demo playable some way on a pc, i.e. some software mod that allowed it to be read?

i know they are all xbox demos, and mainly because x-box has a larger fps draw than the other consoles

i would presume there is some software out there that can do it, it is probably just different formatting, so all you need is something to decrypt it... hmm, you should hardwire x-box components into you pc...

If I had an x-box to take components from, I would just use the x-box


is there any FREE software that'll do it for me?

ANYTHING AT ALL???

demo the game at your local everything store(i.e. walmart, k-mart, target) or at a major electronics store, and the pc is a better version, so you can either buy an xbox or demo a console version, and buy the pcversion

You need the Star Wars Trilogy Box Set...

The only way to play the Demo is to drop the fourth DVD disc ("Bonus Materials") into your X-Box and play Endor single player.


I'd say just wait until an official PC demo comes out. By then the game should be patched up and ready to go.

Otherwise yeah, find a friend with the game or look for an in-store demo to try out.

PS: Somebody said that there's a PS2 demo floating around that you could get packed with some magazine or something.
