A Tiny Tutorial On How To Run Grim Fandango On Your XBox

Recommended Posts

Grab XDSL 7.0 here: Please login or register to see this link.

Once inside XDSL go to "mydsl" and then inside "System" install Wine.

Now go into the systems panel and go to sound, click yes to deactivate whatever is running, this will make sound work, it seems it doesn't work by default.

open firefox and download Please login or register to see this link. go into the file manager, rename .exe to zip and unpack, right click on grim demo exe and pick run with wine.

Simple as pie, most games will not run using this wine method cause the wine in Xdsl is ancient and there doesn't seem to be any 3d acceleration in wine (maybe somebody can port the latest wine to xdsl?) so grim runs i think in some sort of 3d software mode, but it's full speed.

You will need to solder usb ports to your fourth joystick port to use a keyboard/mouse to play grim fandango (thats what I did aeon ago) or buy a joystick2keyboardmouse adapter.

nice, need to try that, and fill a sheet with information about games which run on wine through XDSL.. Would try the Halo demo, maybe the custom edition will run too, that would be awesome.

Unlike x-dsl which you can have in a folder on your hdd with all your other stuff and boot it seems Gentoox might need the whole hdd space to work so i'll have to wait with trying it.

      as the title says, I want to change the location of the music in the folder E: \ TDATA \ fffe000 to one of the following partitions F: \ or G: \. Because I installed almost the DLCs and it rest 100mb, and E: has a small storage about 4.8gb. I would like to install my music and listen to it in PGR2. So i ask is there a option to change soundtrack location??
      UPDATE:I got it working, its piece of cake , it's just change location inside XBE, and copy the folder TDATA\FFFE0000 in E\ to F\. Thats all. Also i changed the location of XBOX Soundtrack Editor to look directly to F\DATA\FFFE0000. I tested in PGR2,FORZA,GTASA and its working!!
