  1. Dang part 2 Social media and YouTube videos for Stellar has been minimal thus far.... Was expecting some YouTube reviews already by now... My Stellar modchip is still in the mail, not expecting it to arrive in my shores for at least 2 more weeks
  2. Has anyone received their Stellar modchips?
  3. I wouldn't say it is a necessity - but if the option presents itself, there's no harm with this upgrade either since it opens up Chihiro games like Outrun 2 and Virtua Cop 3, and also the ability to play Starcraft: Ghost.
  4. Are you sure about this? this is only for kernel debugging and firmware recovery if the modchip somehow got bricked. There shouldn't be a need to use the USB port in most use cases. StellarOS is already baked in to the modchip, no further work is required based on what I am reading at https://makemhz.com/blogs/news/announcing-project-stellar-plus-more
  5. AFAIK any hard disk would be fine. I have a 2TB WD Cavier Blue in my Xbox. And yes, if you already have the pin headers the Project Stellar modchip would just be a drop in replacement for whatever modchip you have. I do not recall if soldering any additional wires are required - you can always check in with Dustin at https://discord.gg/9aammkvj
  6. Ordered mine directly from Dustin's site yesterday Project Stellar + XboxHD+ v1 Upgrade Kit came to $110 with international shipping
  7. There's still lots of other lower selling consoles like the Saturn, Dreamcast, and 3DO in circulation. I estimate at least 50% of the surviving OG Xbox consoles still alive today are already in the hands of fans and enthusiasts who would know how to take care of them and take care to recap them every few years. I believe the console can last another 20-50 years if properly taken care of.
  8. 128MB RAM compatible patch for the M8plus BIOS used with the XboxHD+ is now available I've updated the BIOS in my XeniumICE chip and so far everything is working great without any game compatibility issues. Still haven't installed the XboxHD+ kit though
  9. I assign a static IP to my Xbox via the original MS Dashboard No problems with downloads via XBMC4Gamers or connecting to the console via FTP Perhaps you should consider using a static IP? Just use ipconfig in your PC to identify what is your router's IP address (I am betting it's The rest should be relatively straightforward.
  10. It's a restriction of the FATX file system used by the Xbox, which applies to all files stored in the hard disk. This restriction does not apply to files stored in DVD. This is unfortunately a known issue
  11. You can give these games a try 007: Agent Under Fire 007: From Russia With Love Advent Rising Alien Hominid Aliens vs Predator: Extinction Arctic Thunder Area 51 Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds Capcom Fighting Evolution Conan Crazy Taxi 3 Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball Gunvalkyrie Manhunt Marvel vs Capcom 2 Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Punisher Samurai Shodown V Shikigami no Shiro Shikigami no Shiro II Shikigami no Shiro Evolution SNK vs Capcom: SVC Chaos Spawn: Armageddon Street Fighter Anniversary Collection
  12. I referred to https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/xbox/category/999-all and see how the games were reviewed by both readers and critics when loading up my 2TB drive. A 1TB drive should easily fit at least 300 games, as some of them (i.e. Kakuto Chojin, Crazy Taxi 3) are quite small.
  13. Sorry... I am hosting it in OneDrive simply because I have 1TB storage there. Others in the community are more than welcome to mirror it in a faster host like Mega or Google Drive.
  14. I have all the artwork and files and whatnot archived in my OneDrive repository at https://1drv.ms/f/s!Ao7Z5kIDEKUmguAP8ELOjH_Pf6PCDw in the "Artwork" folder It's not compatible with the downloader baked into XBMC4Gamers though... I manually upload the artwork files to my Xbox via FTP I am more than happy to give up some space in my OneDrive if someone can let me know what needs to be done to make it compatible with XBMC4Gamers
  15. It also doesn't hurt to assign a static IP to the Xbox, and ensure the PC and the XBox are on the same subnet.
  16. Any news of a XboxHD+ BIOS that is sure to work with a 128MB RAM Xbox?
  17. Apa Khabar from Malaysia The Xbox is an amazing console, and definitely feels like it's one generation ahead of the PS2.
  18. Can someone make XBMC4Gamers artwork files for He-Man?
  19. Maybe this can help? https://osxdaily.com/2018/08/05/how-convert-bin-cue-to-iso-mac/ I relied on Parallels Desktop when I was using OS X (before it became macOS) back in the day... my Mac knowledge is severely outdated already, has been at least three years since my iMac died.
  20. That sucks... i will check in with Dustin on the Discord server once I get my XboxHD+ gets in... my order hasn't even been shipped out yet
  21. I am following developments in Dustin's Discord server It's been a looong wait - AFAIK his last update was that he was expecting everything to be shipped by 15 September... but after all these months, I don't mind another small delay
  22. Is this older BIOS compatible with XboxHD+ ?
  23. Did you manage to figure this out? My order still hasn't shipped... but I have a 128MB RAM Xbox as well, and have concerns with support for such upgraded boards since MakeMHZ said only M8Plus BIOS are supported.
  24. That's great news! Have you installed it? Mine still hasn't shipped
