720p Games Patches(Ips) Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, some may be familiar with the 720p patches thread on the Emuxtras website. I want to make a thread here as well so they won't be lost. Many patches have been made(by various contributors) with many (near) perfect conversions. Some games require a 128MB or even a CPU modded Xbox, like the ones made by N64 Freak. But many also run on the a standard 64MB Xbox.

IPS patches are really small (just a few KB's) and only contain the modified hex values and on what position in the binary they should be modified. You will need an application that can apply IPS patches if you want to use them. You can use Lunar IPS Please login or register to see this link. but there are also others.

Because the patches are only a few KB's this means it is also a good candidate to patch them directly on the Xbox in XBMC. This is also why I have named the patches after the game ID's and denoted the target Xbox (64MB, 128MB CPU) to facilitate this.

There is a project called python-ips( Please login or register to see this link. which runs on python version 2.7 (supported on XBMC) which seems to apply the patches correctly and can create backups. I might look into creating a XBMC python script that incorporates python-ips. But unfortunately I probably won't have too much time to do it and since I am unfamiliar with the XBMC specific syntax it will take a while.

However if someone wants to pick this up before me than that is fine. This also goes for other making additional patches. Some of the better games that seem to run amazingly were made by Silverrock see videos of Doom 3 (Please login or register to see this link. )  and Darkwatch (Please login or register to see this link. )

I will add the patches  here soon. You can check them out on Emuxtras if you want them now. here are some screenshots of some of the games.

      Hi all,
       
      I've recently performed a rewrite of the TSOP (EVO M8+) on my PAL console, using the Hexen CD but i am unable to run backups. I've tried the following scenarios
      Game tested: Psychonauts PAL
      Original DVD OK
      DVD2XBOX OK
      FTP or Burned DVD NOK (gets booted back to unleashX)
      Original and iso are from the same game to eliminate other variables (ISO is also PAL) but it doesn't boot.
      Any guesses of what might be wrong? 
      I'm more concerned about not being able to FTP as i wan't to remove dependencies from the hardware that can fail overtime more easily..
       
      Setup that this was tested at:
      XBOX 1.0 TSOP EVOX M8+
      Internal drive: Tested with IDE to SD card, and original HDD

      After a Tsop and 1tb HD install - I had Ninja Massive, a few Xbox games and Emulators working fine.
      This morning I go to power it on, everything looks fine but it will not Boot any of the above mentioned. Loads for a few minutes and returns me to UnleashX Dash.
      I cleared the cache and don't know what else it could be.
      Any tips or help with this is greatly appreciated ;(
