View Full Version : KUF lockups
10-20-2004, 08:11 AM
I was playing a game of KUF last night with lil ivan when right in the middle of the battle the whole xbox locks up. Not a network glitch, but a total system lockup. Now this has happened a couple of times in the offline mode and the only way out is to power cycle the xbox. I did and restarted the game, got back on line and joined him again so I could apologize for the game going south. He told me that this was a common thing and that discussion at the xbox forums had pretty much determined that it was caused by 3rd party controllers. No particular brand, but if you stick to an S-controller with this game, the lockups don't occur.
I absolutely HATE wading through the bullshit at the Xbox forums, but I suppose there is a pearl among the swine occassionally. :smt005

I use the Madcatz Microcon and have no troubles with this game at all. My good friend and my brother have both had issues with this game, so bad that it damaged their XBL accounts! They needed to go back to the dashboard and recover it. It's not the controller that's the issue, it's the type of Xbox you've got. Both my friend and my brother have 2nd gen Xbox's (about 2-3 years old), and those seem to be the players having issues. I was told this by my bro who called 1-800-4-MY-XBOX and spoke to XBL Customer Service Reps.
There is rumor of a patch to come out in mid November to fix the software issues of this game, lag issues, and to also impliment the 4 player Live play of this game. They said the "testing waters" for this was for the Competition they are holding in Japan later this month would prove worthy if the Xbox can handle the pressure of 4 players at once.
It's really too bad this game has horrible glitch issues, it's a really fun game. Two vs. two would make this game more interesting.

Here is one off the Xbox Live thread I was referring to. Hopefully it helps with the lock up issue in KUF. I am also still looking to find a better resolution. Unfortunately I have not experienced any lookups and I only use an S controller. I am unsure of what Xbox Hardware I have.
