  1. Gears of War 2 Freezing on Series X


    I know this is a known issue but thought I would post this to draw attention from Microsoft. I know that Gears 1 through 3 are legacy games, and of course no one wants to claim responsibility for any errors or bugs, but I think if Microsoft offers all legacy games as a perk when you purchase Gears 4 or 5, they should make sure they work properly, besides the issue is not the game itself the issue seems to be my profile or gamertag.

    I've read countless posts with workarounds (including triggering the glitch that resets your progress) and nothing works. I've unplugged my Xbox, uninstalled, reinstalled, tried the same workarounds but offline, nothing. The one thing that I find odd is that, even though I've deleted all Gears 2 files (both in my Series X and within the Xbox360 emulator) and go offline, the game still crashes when my profile is signed in, which I find extremely odd. Most people believe this is a server issue that was never fixed and that it has to do with cloud saves, however, I've literally disconnected my internet router and selected Go Offline in my Xbox settings and the game still crashes when I try to play it with my profile offline, so it doesn't really make sense.

    I've seen posts where people even purchased multiple discs, bough a digital copy etc. and the issue persists. I've also seen posts where people have tried it on different consoles, and it still crashes. In my case, the latter is the only step I haven't tried, because I sold my previous Xbox consoles, so hopefully if I try it at a friend's console it'll work, but my hopes are slim.

    Anyway, hopefully one more person posting about this will draw some attention from MS and get them to do something about it, because with all the tech they have and they owning Gears of War now you'd think this would be a simple fix, but it's been over a decade, so chances are I'll never be able to play Gears 2 with my profile again which sucks; Gears of War is one of the main reasons I've stuck with Xbox from the beginning but with so many issues reported (not just for Gears 2, I've seen a lot of stuff from 4 and 5 as well) and with no Gears 6 in sight, I may reconsider, and yes I know they don't care.

    :)

    Thanks. I followed the steps and reported the issue, though I'm sure nothing will come out of it, but at least I did everything I could.
