Man I get issue after issue with this sh!it... This is like my 3rd post within 2 weeks haha but onto the point.

So I wanted to playthrough all the Harry potter's but 1 game in particular is giving me the major sh!ts and I'm about to break something. Chamber of secrets..... All the others work but this one is being a pain in the a$$ the game loads and all but when you start a new game the Cutscene is going at 5 to 10 fps then when you sit through the whole thing for 10 plus mins the gameplay slows down and speed up between 5 to 20fps.

I've downloaded pretty sure two different copies of the game 1 which required me to buy a premium download service due to it was downloading at 40kbps which I was not sitting for 10+ hours to find out it didn't work anyway. The service was $5 but O well I guess.

So I'm out of ideas on how to fix this issue can someone who either has the game or go download it and try it for themselves please? Or is there a copy on this site if so might have to buy premium here. But yeah really need help please since I'm about to finish up the first one so need help asap :smile:

So please do keep in mind NOT All backwards compat games work on regular consoles, even if it says it works. The game was designed and coded differently to a point of where it doesn't really work well with graphical cards of modernization. It could be the xbox itself too, but in my experience I could load up Star wars battlefront two on my 360.. Cant run for crap.. but it works on the original xbox just fine and BIG SHOCK my xbox one runs it with no problems. Its like 20$ on ebay to get a original xbox if you dont already have one.

Are you using the latest compatibility files? And is it pal?
Could you link to me and I'll try that no idea if it's the most up to date version. Nah it ain't pal pretty sure it's region free no idea.

Nah I don't own a original Xbox. Just don't understand all the others work but this one just lags in Cutscene and doesn't run properly. Also on the dashboard it doesn't even say the name of the game like it's glitched. Is there a copy of the game in the premium section? If so could you test it and tell me if it works for you?

Well of course not everything on the list works exactly right, but on the list it says pal is confirmed working. Here’s the 2011 files in a post: [Click here to view this link]
Try a pal copy if these files don’t fix it, if the pal copy doesn’t work either, there probably isn’t a solution atm

Any idea where to get a pal copy? Could you check on this site if so I'll buy premium to get it. Since I could only buy 2 version which I think were both rf

not all games works perfectly. PAL games are worse, they run @25fps or 50fps, PAL is 50Hz.

Yeah it's just hard to explain what this one does. You start a new game then watch the cut scene the audio is way in front of the video. Once the video catches up and you start moving your character you move in slow motion

If the back compat files don't fix it, it's not going to work. I have ran across a few xbox games that does this crap for me also, can't recall them though as I play xbox og games on my modded xbox og now. The back compat files work "okay" but not perfect, you will get issues such as what you are experiencing, it's to be expected. The xbox og emulation on xbox 360 wasn't perfect in anyways. Again if it doesnt work, it's not going to work. Have latest hacked compatibility files, be on latest dash etc etc and test again, if same issues, xbe modifications may fix your issue but I wouldnt even know where to look in the xbe to fix your issue. If all fails get a modded original xbox with 500gb or more. The fact is that it makes perfect sense why you ran into a game that doesn't work properly, the og emulation wasn't perfect, some games don't work, that's that. Sorry I know it's not the answer you are looking for.

There can also be the issue or problem of your xbox not being able to read the content files correctly.. unless the game is just old enough where the code is super like beginner.. like how games are these days they have advanced to expert style coding and original xbox games were made in older basic coding abilities.. Its hard to explain as I type this.. If you catch the drift of what I am trying to say here.. I know there were some games where the Original Xbox would be unable to run certain games correctly.. Not to mention, I am sure bugs were everywhere in these older games.

Yeah i see where you guys are getting at. The only thing i haven't tried is run a pal copy of the game which i can no find. Only place i can find it buy a actual copy of the game and rip the disc files/play it off the disc in my 360 but cbf buying it for $15.
