An un-named developer who worked on the original Xbox has revealed that he hid an Easter egg in the Dashboard of the system software.
The developer stated: “I didn’t really expect it to be found, not unless the source code leaked or somebody reverse-engineered the Dashboard. Its trigger was the same as the ‘main’ Easter egg so I knew it was possible. I figured somebody would have to leak it for it to be known.”
To trigger the Easter egg:
- Go into Music and insert an audio CD.
- From the Audio CD screen choose Copy, again Copy, then New Soundtrack.
- Delete the default soundtrack title and replace it with (no quotes) “Timmyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!” (That’s the letter “y” 26 times. Or you can just fill the entire field and replace the last one with a “!”.)
- Wait for the contents to copy to the internal HDD. When the task completes, go back to the main menu.
- Navigate to Settings and then System Info.
- You should now see the new hidden screen listing members of the Xbox Dashboard Team - Victor Blanco, Sakphong Chanbai, Bradford Christian and Jim Helm.

Back in the late 2000's gamers were highly anticipating a remaster of the Nintendo 64 game GoldenEye 007. The remaster, which reportedly needed only two more months of development before it was finished, was cancelled because Nintendo, MGM, and Microsoft, which acquired Rare in 2002, were unable to come to a licensing agreement.
The GoldenEye 007 remaster for the Xbox 360 has now leaked all these years later. This remaster, which would have been released on Xbox Live arcade has been known to of been out there for many years now, screenshots and video has been teased over the year. A beta of GoldenEye 007 was briefly posted to Partnernet back in 2007, a developer only version of Xbox Live. As anyone with an Xbox 360 developer kit could access Partnernet back then with no authentication the game was quickly downloaded by someone before it was removed from Partnernet. We can only speculate how this game ended up making its way to the internet, it was likely passed around in private circles before someone decided to leak it for the world to enjoy. Either way i'm sure many gamers are thankful to whoever leaked this for finally giving them a chance to play this cancelled game all these years later.
This leak is a different game to GoldenEye 007: Reloaded which was eventually released on the Xbox 360.
GoldenEye 007 for Xbox 360 can be played on a Jtag or RGH hacked Xbox 360 or on a PC using the Xenia Emulator providing you have a Direct X12 capable graphics card.
From what I've seen GoldenEye 007 is playable from start to finish with only minor bugs with multiplayer and system link split screen working. This should mean its possible to play online using various Xbox 360 tunnelling services such as Xlink Kai or XBS Link. Debug functionality is also present in this build of GoldenEye 007.
Due to the nature of the internet these days it's not a beta we will be hosting on Digiex, however if you...
Continuing the tradition of the past couple of years, its Christmas day and so we just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
We have another Pokemon distribution to add to the Digiex archives. This time it’s the Virtual Console Game Freak Mew.
The Virtual Console Game Freak Mew was distributed for a limited time in Japan and England.
In Japan the Mew was distributed to those who purchased a 20th Anniversary Pokemon Clear 2DS (Red, Green, Blue & Yellow) that came bundled with a collection ticket. The ticket could be taken to a participating Pokemon Center in Japan, where the player could receive the Mew via trade.
In England the Mew was distributed at Nintendo UK’s Pokémon Festival, which took place on 22nd November 2016 at The Old Truman Brewery.

Total Annihilation is a real-time strategy game developed by Cavedog Entertainment and published by GT Interactive in 1997
The game is set in the far future in the midst of a galactic war, with battles taking place on the surface of planets and moons. The efforts of the player are centered on constructing a defensive base and an offensive force, and conquering opponents. The player is also concerned with gathering resources, reconnaissance and stealth, and evaluation of units and terrain. Battles take place against AI in a story-driven campaign, with the option of playing against other players in a skirmish mode.
Currently Total Annihilation along with its two expansion packs, The Core Contingency and Battle Tactics is free to download on Good Old Game (GoG) for the next two days.
In my opinion certainly a classic game worth checking out. I actually own the big box version of this game and still have it somewhere to this day, of course a digital copy is much more convenient in 2020.
Myself and Nimrod used to play this game over dial up internet in the late 90s. If you ever enjoyed Red Alert or Age of Empires, this is probably another game you would also enjoy.

Today we have an unexpected trip down memory lane, which all started when @jessenic sent a screenshot on WhatsApp of an old hard drive he found used when developing the Mac version of the Digiex Minecraft Launcher, a launcher which was very popular back in the day before Minecraft Java Edition had any sort of official launcher allowing you to select the version you wish to play.
By chance I asked Jessenic if he had a backup of the first Minecraft world from the original Digiex server, it turns out he did! This server started around October / November 2010 on an old Mac Mini that lived on a shelf in @Nimrod 's bedroom. This was the alpha edition of Minecraft.
Jessenic sent the world over to me and I managed to load it in the latest version of Minecraft Java Edition. Jessenic was also exploring the world, so we decided to explore it together and I uploaded it to an idle Minecraft instance I had on a server hosting Pixelmon for some friends.
I never really played Minecraft much back then, however did play on the Digiex server for a short while. Remembering the bridge system connecting peoples houses / creations well. The first thing I ever built on Minecraft was still there, a little seaside house, with a shark trap by the sea outside it. Little did I know at the time Minecraft did not have sharks in it.
As this world was hosted online for near enough two years I was impressed to see how much people had developed it over time, Jessenic gave me a tour of many of the major builds that had taken place in that time, which does make me wish I’d played Minecraft a bit more back then.
From looking at the map data it seems exactly 840 played on this world over the two years it was online, pretty impressive!
For anyone who might still be lurking on Digiex from the Minecraft days, or for anyone curious on what people were doing 10 years ago on Minecraft Alpha I will leave this server online for a while and opened it up to the public.
You can connect using Minecraft Java edition 1.15.2 (current latest) by adding: minecraft.digiex.net as a server.
The server from back in the day did look to have a few mods installed to allow warping to several areas that were built up over the years. Unfortunately these do not work, so I’ve simply changed the spawn area to the one originally used when the server first started out.
