Downloading, Unzipping, Transfering Emulators and Roms

Recommended Posts

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.

Gator

this filezilla I linked should work on windows XP. To put emulators on for unleashX is really easy. Assuming you have a stock HDD, you go into your E drive, and make a folder named "emus". Then you extract your emulator(use WinRar), and drag it into the emulators folder. Make sure its not double foldered, for example : E:\emus\Surreal64\Surreal64\default.xbe. This would be wrong. It should be something like E:\emus\Surreal64\default.xbe.

here is a good place to download roms but its illegal bla bla bla

I see the same thing 3.8.0 latest official release to support XP, others have said 3.9.0.1 or .2 worked for them on XP SP3 Pro.

Older versions are available at sourceforge.net.  You have to click on "Browse all files" to browse the listings to locate them.

edit: Wow, sourceforge did a major site upgrade. Click on the Files tab to browse the project's files.

Hello friend, I have some links that can be useful to you, are from two sites to find emulators.

this is already a link of the emulators.
Please login or register to see this link.

that's a few packages of emulators already with roms, videos and artwork.

and this is from a Brazilian forum that has a lot of useful stuff. just need to register.
Please login or register to see this link.

just need to unpack the emulators, the respective packages inside the special emulator for each system and make an ftp. I recommend creating an emulators folder on drive F. getting F: Emulator / atari 2600 (for example) /default.xbe



I'd like to apologize if I'm breaking any rules.

Great info & topic... where do we place the roms once emulators are installed?

In the emu's ROM or is it ROMS subfolder.

      A decent amount of research, recording, money, and fun went into making this video! Haven't done one in this style before, but it seems to be getting an overwhelmingly positive reception. It might not be perfect, but I figured it would be fitting to post here.

      Hello ! 

      Just wondering if anyone has a good place to order the gold and black clock caps for a 1.6. I'm in North America

      Like a newb, I removed them too, as I was doing a bunch of boxes at the same time. Now my cristal is not turning on at all lol. 

      I need new replacement caps !!! 

      .... Links please !!
