XBOX One X Console Unboxing and Basic Setup

XBOX ONE X Limited Edition

XBOX X Scorpio Edition Logo



What is the Xbox One X?

The Xbox One X is the most powerful games console on the market today. It represents a major performance boost over the Xbox One S and is geared towards people who want to see their games at the best quality possible on a console.

4K is the name of the game, and this machine does a sterling job of serving up games at the fabled 3840 x 2160-pixel resolution.

But it’s not quite that simple. Game developers are still beavering away to optimise their Xbox games to take advantage of the One X’s hardware, and it leaves me with the impression that casual players are going to be rather confused come launch day. In addition, not every game you played on the original Xbox One or Xbox One S will look better, or even play better, on the One X; it’s entirely on a game-by-game basis.

Aside from muddying the waters, there’s no disputing that the Xbox One X is a seriously impressive piece of hardware that takes console performance to new heights.

But does that make it a must-buy?



XBOX X One Unboxing


The xbox comes in a nice black finished printed box that screams both classy and impressive, probably one of the nicest boxes I have seen, so I can’t complain too much . Since this is a limited edition it comes with the Project Scorpio printed on the Box, Console and Controller.

XBOX One X Controller Box

The xbox one controller box is neatly packed and just as nice as the main box, everything has a perfect spot.


Xbox One Controller Box




As you can see from the controller, the words Project Scorpio are printed on the controller.

View of controller with Scorpio written on it Xbox One X controller Xbox one X controller Xbox One Controller



XBOX One Chip


The Xbox One X boasts a custom eight-core CPU running at 2.3GHz (31 per cent faster than the Xbox One). The GPU is made up of 40 custom compute units running at 1172MHz – this allows the ‘X’ to deliver six teraflops of processing power, way above the PS4 Pro’s 4.2 teraflops.

Microsoft’s new console gets a significant bump in memory with an allocation of 12GB of GDDR5 RAM – nine of which is available to developers – taking its bandwidth up to 326GB/s). That’s enough to process the high-resolution textures needed to render native 4K images.




I definitely wouldn’t say it is very attractive for a console, very boxy, but has a nice matt looking finish.

Size Comparison between XBOX One and XBOX One X

It’s definitely considerably smaller against the original XBOX One X. I would think it would be a similar size to the S, but length wise it is about the same.

Microsoft has introduced new packaging icons to help distinguish games optimised for the One X.

If you see the ‘Xbox One X Enhanced’ logo, it indicates updates have been made “to fully take advantage of the Xbox One X’s power”. Some games will feature basic enhancements, some will see the addition of 4K resolution and some will see the addition of HDR. It could be all three, or a combination. Really, it’s all down to the game developers.

Microsoft listed over 100 games that will receive improvements at its Gamescom 2017 press conference. The list includes:




The width as you can see is about 1-2″ shorter. It also comes with a stand if you want to stand it on it’s side.

What is Supersampling?

If there’s one thing I’d love for you to take away from all this information is this: a 4K screen is not required to play great games on Xbox One X. Your games will still look and run much better on Xbox One X than any other console on the market regardless of your television and that’s thanks to supersampling. Supersampling also helps to reduce “jaggies” around the edges of objects and other staircasing-like effects

Think of supersampling as the cousin of upscaling. Instead of taking a lower resolution image and blowing up (creating a distortion) like upscaling’s effect, supersampling takes a high-resolution image and scales it down to your television’s native resolution — be it 720p or 1080p — to bring all the information that Xbox One X is pouring into its games and beaming to the screen.

But supersampling is more than just resolution as any Xbox One X Enhanced title running on at 1080p television is still taking advantage of the power of the system. That makes your draw distance better, greater special effects, and everything else that’s running under the hood of the world’s most powerful console.

Preparing Yourself for Xbox One X

Post by Will Tuttle, Xbox Wire Editor in Chief Posted on November 3, 2017 at 9:00 am



The Xbox One X is launching next week, ushering in a brand-new era of 4K console gaming. In the video above, Major Nelson shares several great new features that you can take advantage of right now to help you get up and running as quickly as possible with the games, content, and settings you want on Xbox One X. We’re here to break each of those features down.

Pre-downloading 4K assets

You can pre-download 4K assets for many Xbox One X Enhanced games ahead of launch. After-all, on November 7 you’re going to want to soak in the Xbox One X Enhanced glory with zero delay.

Simply go to Settings, then System, and finally choose Backup and transfer.

You’ll see an option for Download 4K game content right here. Simply tap A to check the box. You can also go to Settings, System, then Updates and check the box for Keep my games and apps up to date. That way the 4K content will download on its own as it becomes available.

Backing Up Your Settings

Head back up to the Backup and Transfer settings. Here you’ll see Back Up My Settings. This will allow you to transfer your account and key system settings, such as notification preferences, over to your new Xbox One X. If you enable this feature, your settings will be copied to a hard drive. Simply have that hard drive connected when you fire up your Xbox One X for the first time and you’ll be able to import your settings.

Transferring Using Network Transfer

Also under Backup and transfer is the network transfer option. This feature allows you to copy games and apps from your current console to your new console using your home network. You’ll just need to be sure both consoles are connected to the network. And don’t worry, because the feature uses your local area network, it won’t use any of your internet bandwidth.

Transferring with an External Hard Drive

If you have a supported external hard drive, though, we recommend that you use that to transfer games over to your Xbox One X. After all, if they’re on a hard drive, you can just plug it in and away you go to far off lands of Xbox One X Enhanced splendor—no waiting required.

Luckily, the team has enabled bulk transfer across storage devices. Simply go to Settings, System, and then choose Storage. From here, you can choose which drive you want to manage. In this case, we’ll choose the Internal drive. From here, you can manually select what you want to move or copy, or even better, you can choose Select all.

Once you’ve selected the games and apps you want to manage, you can choose to Copy or Move them to the supported external drive of your choice.

By using these great features, you can help ensure the quickest possible path to enjoying Xbox One X with the games, apps, and settings you want.

Finding Your Xbox One X Enhanced Games

Once you’re up and running, you’re going to want to know which games are already Xbox One X Enhanced! You can always go to for an official look at which games have shipped their Xbox One X Enhanced update.

On your console, you can use the Xbox One X Enhanced filter under My Games & Apps to see which games have an update. Again, be sure to enable automatic updates in Settings, System, and then Updates. That way you don’t have to manually download updates when they’re available.

If prefer not to use automatic updates, you can always check the Updates section of My Games & Apps to see which games have an update available.

Of course, you can always check that your game is running the latest version by simply launching it. If it launches, you have the latest version—it’s as simple as that!

GTA Online – Smugglar’s Run


Tips for Smuggler’s Run

Smugglers Run DLC



What is it ?

Smugglar’s is the latest DLC from Rockstar, but I am not here to tell you what you already know, I am here to give you my take on it and  recommendations such as which Hangar to buy, which product to purchase and when, feel free to discuss in the comments below, it is ok to disagree or agree with me 🙂



Is Hangar or Hanger ?


So let’s start off with getting the elephant out of the room with this amusing image. Let’s just hope you don’t catch me out with it ..


Hangar vs Hanger



Which Hangar should you Buy ?


Hangar Locations



There are two main locations to buy hangars at, Fort Zancudo and LSIA (Los Santos international Airport). In the image above, Fort Zancudo is in the top left and LSIA is in the bottom left. You want to buy one at Zancudo even though the LSIA ones are cheaper. The reason been is you get low level access to the Military base. What this means is when you enter the base you no longer get 4 stars for entering since you already have access. Also all the Bunkers are up North, so it makes even more sense to buy at Zancudo, especially if you own the Fort Zancudo Bunker, it’s a no brainer. Getting to your Hangar and vice versa back to your Bunker is a breeze. If you have them at LSIA, you have to keep flying back and forth, but the main reason is for the low level base access which makes it worth while in itself.



So which Hangar at Fort Zancudo ?

Well this really depends on your cash flow. All Hangars work and look the same inside. The most expensive has a larger door and larger roof to land on to drop crates on, this might make a difference to you. I personally would recommend going with the most expensive because of that. If you are undecided and really don’t want to spend the cash or don’t have the cash, getting the cheapest one or the middle one will do just fine. All the spawns are in the same place, you don’t get better Pegasus spawns at the different hangars.


Hangar Locations



The 3 locations are marked with the red arrows, the most expensive hangar is in the middle of the base and then the other two are smaller ones.; I would probably get the one on the right jus because it is likely to be closer to where the pegasus vehicle would spawn. That been said the the hangar on the left would likely be the least busiest and give you extra time to escape if you needed to. I would still personally choose the middle hangar purely for the location in the base and not necessary because it is the most expensive.




Which product should I collect ?

The missions for every product is basically the same, the difference is the bonus you get after you deliver crates. My suggestion is if you think you going to deliver 50 crate, collect Narcotics, if you think you going to deliver 25 or less crates collect tobacco products. Take a look at the following table you you can decide. Here its the full table someone put together. Because Narcotics is the first product on your table, it is easy to make sure you don’t collect the wrong product. At the end of the day if you collection 50 crates, you can collect Medical, Chemicals or Narcotics, they will all give you the same bonus at 25 crates.


Spreadsheet with Smugglers Run calculations


If you going to collect less than 25 crates, collect Tobacco, Jewelry or Art. Again pick Art, because it is just underneath Narcotics and you less likely to make a mistake collecting the wrong product.


Smugglers Run Desktop


BONUS TIP: Make sure you sell any and all other products because you can only keep 50 Crates in our inventory at any one time. When you first collect your setup crates, it will give you 1 crate in two products, if you don’t sell these, and you don’t realize and you click the sell all crates button you will lose out on your bonus. Make sure you have only 1 product and when you sell make sure it says 50/50 crates collected, this is important.


50 out 50 Crates

GTA Online Solo Session

SOLO Sessions


So there are various strategies for creating a solo session in GTA, this are forever changing as the fun police patch certain methods and new methods are created. Keep an eye on the local forums or the Seven Sins forums.


XBOX One SOLO Session using NAT Method


This isn’t my video, but this gives you a quick overview how to use the NAT Method with the new XBOX Dashboard. You can use the MTU method for the PS4. This may be patched the future if Rockstar make enough noise or M$ decide to make changes to the dashboard because of the fun police complaining.




The Switch Method (This is my preferred method)


I prefer the switch method and this will work with either PS4 or XBOX One. You basically break the network for 10 seconds, this can be done at the router coming into your house using a coax switch or a simple switch you can buy off ebay or Amazon. I break the connection for 10 seconds and boom you alone. The cool thing about this method is, if you in the middle of a mission or in the middle of a sell mission, then if you alone (meaning you don’t have friends in your organization), it will boot everyone out of your session except you and you can continue with your mission uninterrupted if you get it right. Sometimes it will disconnect, but most times if you time it just right, you can continue. The problem with other methods, it normally require you to do something, so doesn’t work if you in a mission. The above NAT method may work if you in a mission, I haven’t tested it, feel free to comment and let me know.


Here is a quick diagram I put together for the switch method and some links for the switches below.

So the basic concept or method is that you have some sort of switch in-between your main Firewall Router and your internet network. Most of these switches can be bought for $40 or less, you can even get them around $10. The two switch ethernet switch can be bought off Amazon or eBay for around $5-$20. I will try find one on Amazon for you guys as well as the coax switch if you don’t want to buy or use and internal switch. You only need one of the ports be plugged in, basically it is a switch to switch between two devices, you can leave 1 empty and when you switch it basically just breaks the connection. I have it on my desk where I sit and play with a long cable between the two, when someone enters my session I simply lean over and switch the connection for 10 seconds.


Where to Buy

1. Two port Ethernet switch

2. Two Port Coax Switch

3. 16 Port Internal Switch

4. External Router / Firewall 



Please let any comments and let me know if you think I missed anything, I will add more content as I get it it. Look forward to hearing from you.



GTA – Grand Theft Auto 5 – Bunker – The best way to make money in the game (Gunning Running DLC)


Grand Theft Auto 5 Gaming Tips

Bunker Money Making Tips for GTA Online


Bunker Money Maker in the Game

Without a doubt, the Bunker is the best money maker in the game. I get into arguments on the forum about this topic but it is clearly the winner because it is the least grindiest way to make money. The only competitor is the Vehicle Warehouse, but I find it too grindy, but no doubt is a good money maker and fun if you have never tried it. I am going to tell you how to maximize your money in the Bunker so you can spend more time making money or doing other things.   My discussion will talk about selling a FULL bunker, you can continue to sell like you normally would if you sell less than 350K or only with only with 1 or 2 vehicles.


A couple of points if you like to sell in a full session because you like the rush, then maybe selling a full bunker is not necessarily the best idea if things go wrong. Always remember you can always quit before you deliver the last vehicle and only lose a bit of money. If all your vehicles are destroyed at the same time, then you will lose everything.

Second, this strategy only works if you have a bunker close to Los Santos. If you have a bunker in Paleto Bay or Noth of the Alamo Sea, you going to have to test whether it will work.


Third I am going to ramble a little bit, I will talk about selling a full bunker solo, but I will also talk about selling 1 – 2 vehicles as well to cover general selling for the bunker, but my main focus is selling a full bunker solo.


I used to hate the bunker when it first came out because of the sell missions. The supply missions were easy and fun, but the sell missions were mostly unpleasant until I saw a pattern. There are basically 5 Sell Missions which are consistent and are broken down into a few categories but are easily identifiable. There are two ways to determine which mission you want.

1. The time it takes to complete the mission is either 15 Minutes or 30 Minutes. You don’t want the 30 Minute missions if you haven’t done all the missions go ahead and try them to see if you like them. Some like the insurgent one with 3 friends is actually a lot of fun and if you have the Anti-Aircraft Trailor with the flak guns, it is a blast, I will talk a bit more about that later.

2. If you see the 0/15 or 0/10, these are the ones you don’t want unless you have 3 friends, but definitely not solo. You can maybe do them solo, but you run the risk of running out of time and you going to spend considerable more time and effort for a little extra reward. Some like the Marshall one can be done solo if the timing is right and on your side, but you literally will have seconds to spare.

3. The main way to tell if you have the right mission is when you have the single drop off missions you will see 1-3 DOTS in the right-hand corner —->GTA Online 3 Dots



GTA Online 3 Dots Mission

Single Delivery Vehicle Missions

When you do a sell mission, you can either get 1 delivery vehicle, 2 delivery vehicles or 3. This is usually determined by the amount of product you have produced (not what the product is worth when you sell it). So if you have $175K or less, you will always get 1 delivery vehicle, this is a good way to test all the sell missions, just do 1 vehicle at a time. If you have friends, doing the 30-minute missions can be a lot of fun especially the insurgent missions.


BONUS Tip: If you have the Anti-Aircraft Trailer, you can hook it on the back of the insurgents and have fun, but just be careful because you can destroy the insurgents if you just shooting like crazy. I destroyed a friends insurgent because I was careless and having way too much fun. What I do is drop in on the main road before going to the yellow circle to avoid any accidents. The flak gun is the best attachment as it can take down Hydra’s, but needless to say, if a Hydra comes after you, chances are you done because the trailer can only take 1 hit. The homing missiles run out, so not ideal. If you haven’t done your research, the default guns as seen below, do a good enough job, so don’t worry, call it anyway because it is still fun. But ultimately you will the flak cannon upgrade for the most fun and most impact.

Anti Aircraft Trailer

As a note, you can pull the Anti-Aircraft Trailer with the following Vehicles but comes with a default truck. Just unhitch it and attach it to the back of you insurgent. You can call it via the vehicle menu for quick delivery right next to you.

  • Bobcat XL
  • Bison
  • Sadler
  • Nightshark
  • Half-track
  • APC
  • Insurgent Pick-Up Custom
  • Technical Custom


Bunker Sell Missions

The sell missions are generally made up of the following missions

  • Marshall (1-3 Vehicles) – 15/30 Minutes (0-15 dropoffs)
  • Insurgents (1-3 Vehicles) – 15/30 Minutes (0-15 dropoffs)
  • Dune Buggy (1-3 Vehicles) – 15/30 Minutes (0-15 dropoffs)
  • Insurgents (1-3 Vehicles) – 15 Minutes (1 drop off per vehicle)
  • Phantom Wedge (1-2 Vehicles) – 15 Minutes (1 drop off per vehicle)



Vehicle Numbers

So depending on how you want to sell, you can get 1-3 vehicles. If you have under $175K, you will get a single vehicle, if you have under $350K, you will get 2 Vehicles and anything above 350K of a product will generally give you 3 vehicles except the Phantom Wedge Mission which is 2 Phantom Wedges. A full bunker will always be 2 or 3 vehicles or more, so you definitely can’t handle some of the missions solo and even with friends some of them like the dune buggy is questionable in 15 minutes, but the game designed for you to fail and lose your money. 15 minutes to deliver plus deal with interference from other players are more than likely to not end well. Avoid the dune buggy mission, it is garbage.


Okay here is the strategy to maximize your money, you want to avoid the first 3 missions. So how do you do this ? The easiest way is if you playing with friends, you simply go back to story mode and rejoin your friend’s session (This is the easiest and quickest). I will talk a little bit about solo sessions later. If you not playing with friends, then just switch sessions until you in another session. So what I mean by this is, if you get one of the 3 missions that are 15 or 30 minutes. You click on the SELL STOCK button and you end up outside your bunker facing either the Marshall’s, Insurgents or Dune Buggies that are the 15 or 30-minute missions or says 0/10 or 0/15 drop off’s, then simply switch your session and start another. You can also join a Crew session even if you don’t have any crew online, it will still join a session, might be quicker for some of you.

The Best way to identify the missions you need are making sure it doesn’t say 0/10 or 0/15 and it has 2 or 3 dots in the corner and are 15 minute missions.



I am talking about when you trying to sell a full or close to a full bunker. If you only have $175K or possibly two vehicles, you might want to proceed anyway, if you playing with friends why not. This means you either going to deliver 3 Insurgent Drop off vehicles or 2 Phantom Wedges. If you are selling a full Bunker  I suggest NOT doing this in a full lobby. If you want to try to get that awesome bonus feel free. Selling the full amount will get you $1,050,000 to LS. The bonus will be $10,500 per player however the risks are higher and you could lose everything. That being said if you want to try to get that extra bonus and things go south, quit your game before all the vehicles are destroyed and you should only lose 20-30K, no big deal.


The first is the easiest and that is when the 2 Phantom Wedges appear. You will have either of a couple endpoints to deliver both of these. When you deliver the first one, call up the Buzzard/Havok and fly back to the start point and deliver the second one to the exact same location. Sometimes the endpoint will be at the LS Airport in the far corner. When that happens your Buzzard will spawn far away. So you can call an aircraft or what I do is grab a cop car and drive to the HANGAR where the Titan normally spawns at and use the Titan to fly back to my bunker which is fun. The second mission you want to consider is the Insurgent. You will have 3 Insurgents and a 15-minute timer. Make sure it is the 15-minute timer!


This one requires some decent driving and flying skills but it is doable. Each one of these will go to a different location. I strongly suggest that you hop into one of the Insurgents and if the delivery location is fairly close, hit the road immediately. If it seems like it is really far, like near the airport or the docks, do that one last because you will need to make a return trip for the other two and it’s wasted time. With the long haul one being the final, you will not have to make a lengthy return trip. This one requires decent driving and flying skills. I generally have 2 – 3 minutes to spare when you delivering 3 vehicles, so as long as no one is messing with you or you don’t get the vehicle stuck, it’s easily doable and you not distracted by other things, stay focused  as your time is limited.



Bonus Tip: Oh yeah! One other word of caution: If you have more than 50% of your stock full, you do run the risk of your bunker being raided. So make sure to keep that in mind when attempting to fill that bunker up. You have about 10 hours real time before a raid kicks in, so if you go over 500K, make sure you sell that day, if you come back the next day and decide to do a heist or something else, you risk your bunker getting raided EVEN if you have the security upgrades. I lost 500K because I wasn’t paying attention. I had a full bunker and they took half my stock.



Selling in Blaine or in Los Santos?

Well, you going to want to sell Los Santos because you will get maximum payout, no point in selling local and making less money, just don’t do it.

Solo Sessions

See my post about solo sessions.

AFK in your Bunker?

You can AFK in your Bunker if you have the Security upgrade. The security cameras are right next to your computer in the Bunker. Simply watch the security feed, you can either plug in your controller or turn off your controller, you don’t need to keep your controller on to be AFK. If you opted not to buy the security upgrade, you can AFK in any of your apartments by watching TV or watching TV in your Office. Just sit down on the couch, turn on the TV and watch TV, then turn off your controller. For XBOX Owners, there is a new IDLE setting on your XB Dashboard which will kick you if idle, you should be able to find it on Settings, preferences, Idle Settings, disable this to avoid being kicked.

Which Upgrades to Buy?

I highly recommend you get all 3 upgrades asap.

  • The Equipment upgrades will help  your supplies last longer
  • Staff upgrades will allow your staff to produce more product faster
  • Security upgrades will lessen the risk of you getting raided, but more importantly, it will allow you to AFK in your Bunker, so you don’t have to leave and come back. All 3 upgrades are worth getting and will pay for themselves, so don’t worry, your bunker will basically pay for everything you could ever want or need in the game.



To Buy or Steal Supplies?

Once you have upgraded all your equipment, you should only buy supplies and use your time with IE (Import/Export) or doing missions or heists. The Bunker business is passive income, so basically as long as you online, you will be making money. If you stealing supplies you are basically throwing money out of the window and instead of earning money on top of your bunker, you are stealing supplies instead. Rather put this time to good use and be earning and let the supplies come in on its own. It takes exactly 9 minutes for supplies to be delivered, I found it is sometimes beneficial to wait for the supplies to be delivered before continuing with other activities. I have noticed recently that certain activities, heists for instance, I come back and my supplies haven’t been delivered. I think R* tweaked it to reduce the amount of product to be delivered so you intentionally lose money.


What I can confirm works for sure, is if you doing a sell, your supplies WILL be delivered during the sell, so what I normally do is buy supplies just before I do a sell, that way, my supplies are full by the time I am done and I can continue without waiting 9 minutes.


Don’t buy supplies if you have not upgraded your equipment or staff, as you will take a loss, it only becomes worthwhile to buy supplies when your equipment and staff are running efficiently, else continue to steal until you have upgraded. If you want you can continue to steal, but this is not how you run a passive business and you wasting more time than it is worth.



Bunker Maintenance Fees

Bonus Tip: Avoid the $9400 Bunker maintenance fees and now the $9000 facility fees by switching sessions every 40-48 minutes real time. If you switch sessions it will reset your time and you won’t get charged. You can also elect to just pay the fees and sell a Baller to cover your fees. Also if you are AFK’ing in your Bunker, before you become a CEO again, switch sessions, because as soon as you become a CEO or MC again and you have afk’ed for longer than 48 minutes, you will be charged the $9400 fee once you become a CEO.


Police Raids

If you purchase the Security upgrades, RAIDS will still happen but less frequent. The main way to avoid any raids is to make sure you sell after you go over 500K. Anytime you go over 500K your risk of getting raided increases. If you don’t leave your bunker then the chances of you getting raided is very unlikely, I have yet to be raided while I am in my bunker. What I normally do is set my spawning point in the bunker so we I log in to GTA, the first thing I do is buy supplies and check my stock levels. If I am between 600-700K, then you can sell. If you planning on playing something else like Missions, Heists, Smugglers Run and your stock is over 500K, sell your stock first even if it is only 500K, this way you won’t get raided. There is nothing worse than Failstar taking your hard earned product because you off enjoying something else in the game to come back to a RAID. Once a raid has started, you have already lost and there is no way to recover your money once a RAID has kicked in.


Saving Money on Supplies (Trick)

Fill the supply bar on your bunker or MC Club business, or both. then wait for production to take literally, a sliver out of your otherwise full supply bar.

Buy Supplies for 15k and then use an open heist, to teleport back to your apartment. Once there, you can start a Simeon contact mission (Blow Up 1 comes to mind) and it will 9 times out of 10, start while you’re still in the apt. just sit down and click the tv on and you won’t be kicked for AFK.

In about two hours it will consume a full supply bar making products and use all your supplies, you can time it but it is about 2 – 2.5hours.

You can then quit the mission (or complete it for an extra 18K, Blow up 1, you just need Buzzard and destroy all the cars in the parking lot and fly back to the garage) and after a while those supplies you ordered will show up, but they will fill your bar the entire way. you just got about a full bar of supplies for 15k.

BONUS TIP: Get a coke spot close to your bunker and do both at the same time. you can call in supplies at the paleto bay coke spot, and at your farmhouse bunker for example well before any calls to say they have been delivered. Then when you get online both are nice and full and you start your session with two sales at 1.4 mill
