Split XBe's (Gb/Gba/Gbc Etc Seperate Emulators)

Recommended Posts

For those of you like myself who were looking for a way to have multiple instances of a multisystem emulator (instead of having seperate rom folders for each system within one emulator) without overwriting configs/saves,

Any hex editor should work, I used this one Please login or register to see this link.

Make a copy of the desired emulator folder on your pc. In this example I used Xboyadvance_v24b07

Rename the folder to something more specific: I chose Xboyadvance_GB

Open the default .xbe in the Xboyadvance_GB folder in your hex editor

Select search > replace  - Make sure you've clicked the boxes labelled "text string" under the "find" and "replace with" sections, and uncheck the "case sensitive" option at the bottom.

In the "find" field enter xboyadvance

In the "replace with" field enter xboyadvanca (replace with whatever name you like, but it must be the same number of characters as xboyadvance - 11 characters)

Save the .xbe and ftp the folder to your xbox, you'll have to setup the default directories and configure everything, but once  you're done it should be all set.

You can follow the same method, and replace the xboyadvance with something different the second time, I just used xboyadvanca, and xboyadvancb, on mine., and the default that came with the emu for the third, and I now have 3 independent versions with their own configs, previews, saves etc.

I posted this tutorial hoping it would help some other picky people like myself, you can use it for different emulators like Neogenesis or Meka-X, but the search strings would change according to the name of the emulator of course.

I'm also attaching two edited Xboyadvance ..XBE's. You should be able to just plop these into copies of the emu folder and ftp it to your xbox, though you'll still have to configure the emu of course.

Alternatively you can just replace E:\S with D:\S and E:\M with D:\M

i made a script for XBMC that will do this for emulators. It in the XBMC-Emustation repo in my github. 

What the above does it make the emulator save all its stuff in its root directory instead of E, so all you need to do is copy it a couple times and change the xbe title.

Trying to do the split for MekaX for Game Gear and SMS.  It works initially but once I load covers and ROMs and configure directories then both of them just go to black screen when I load them.

      I ran a game on CoinOPS and the screen went black .When I restarted the system the system couldn’t see the entire f drive (the section where my emulators were).The rest of the sections function correctly.I tried to ftp and the computer saw the contents once then when I looked again it could no longer see it.The system still says that there is something taking up space on the drive.I was wondering if there was anything I could do?I have a lot of time and effort in this build over 200gb of stuff has been put on there.I am running unleash x and xbmc4 .The system has a 500 gb ide hard drive.The console has been softmodded.

      Hi.
      I have been stuck on this for a few days now.
      I have managed to softmod my 1.6 (broken IDE slowed me down but I finally got the HDD switch out to work).
      Now I'm trying to find out how to download Emulators and ROMs. I'm networked with my xbox on my old ThinkPad running WinXP. I can't find a FileZilla that works with WinXP. I found Stella for Atari 2600 but I can't figure out how to get it to unzip or not unzip and then transfer to the xbox. I've also downloaded River Raid ROM.
      I can see the folders... then I go to my Unleashed screen on Xbox and I see the files ONLY in FILE EXPLORER. I find the file for Stella and River Raid but then I push A and nothing happens. It just sits there.
      I'm frustrated. All the videos and tutorials SKIP the download and zip or unzip and just have the right file ready to transfer. Do I need an FTP? Or can I just use network connection?
      Do I use WinRAR to unzip both the Emu file and the ROM?
      Grrr.
      Any assistance is appreciated.

      I knew this was extremely hard for me to get my hands on. I've looked all over the Internet for wide custom banners. I found a few but they were missing quite a bit. I had to get a little bit from this guy a little bit from that guy and made my own bundle. In this ZIP file is not my entire wide set. Just the ones I had very hard time finding I wanted to share this with the group because I made them myself. I could not find any online. In this download you will find borders 4 wide icons for XBMC. Some of the icons are coin-ops. Premium. Hyper vision ninja and ninja gold. Even adults only with neon lights... I hope that somebody can actually use these. This way I did not waste a bunch of time just making it for myself. Please seed this as much as possible and share as much as possible. Thank you very much and I hope that you guys enjoy this I know it's not perfect but I think they turned out pretty good.
