adventures in Xbox One Dev mode
so i’m the developer at bluer reddish green, a new, experimental indie game dev company. we have a microsoft developer’s license, and we’re probably releasing our new game on xbox as well.
to do that, we have to test on an xbox.
and the only way to do that is by using the Developer mode supplied by microsoft that turns my old 2014 Xbox One into a Devkit.
so it worked, and we could deploy code effortlessly,
is what we would have said if we were dreaming.
startup errors are abundant, and the xbox inadvertently refreshed itself halfway through a startup.
and then i got an E200 error that forced my hand into resetting the xbox fully.
and one person in my family owns all the games, so i can’t play anything until they log the fuck back on.
