Hey folks! Nothing too special here, but I finished refurbishing my og xbox. it's a v1.2 which i bought back in 2002. here's the work i've done: - removed clock cap - replaced 3 caps that went bad - hard-modded the box and flashed with evox, xbmc is stock dash now - replaced stock-fan with 80mm bequiet silentwings (and therefore trimmed the hdd- and dvd-tray a little bit) - installed green controller port-leds - installed blue and white power- and eject-button leds - cleared jewel, repainted the silver "xbox" letters with gold paint (turned out shitty though ) and installed a green led-ring on top - installed a 2TB sata hdd - painted the entire casing and a controller (s) white - added some coloured elements (front dvd-tray and middle part) aaand that's it i think. i actually did the whole thing to 2 consoles (the other one has the same mods, except for blue accent-colors). i gave the blue one to a good friend of mine for his birthday. i forgot to take pictures of the other box, since i was rushing to get the job done, but if you want, i can take some pics of it as well. special thanks to ss_dave, since he gave me the inspiration for the color-scheme! let me know what you think! greetings bot
I thought that all of the original Xbox forums online were all gone/dead. It's great to see that there are still active ones to be found! For my first post I wanted to share one of my first Xbox consoles I modded. Its nothing special, just something designed to be used at events where hundreds gather where I wont be afraid to have any number of random visitors using it. The Xbox itself is simply softmodded and it has been reworked to use a 2.5" SATA HDD. From the 120gb it now houses coinops and a number of modded Halo, Timesplitter and Battlefront games. The idea is a very multiplayer friendly console that is intuitive to use. While it has an XBMC dash, it boots directly into coinops so any number of people can use it without having to ask what to do. Before I upgraded the HDD I took a snap of the original guts while I was working on the console. The HDD is sitting on a spacer above the motherboard to allow for increased airflow, done after the capacitors were rewired and replaced. For fans I am using a Sunon for exhaust and the famous Iceberq 4 for the chipset. The PSU has been wired externally similar to a laptop. While I could have used a picopsu, this defeats the purpose of the console being cheap, easy and worry free with strangers using it. It's nothing fancy. But it looks great, its robust, it doesn't overheat after 12+ hour sessions, I have very little money invested in it and I built it so I wouldn't be afraid of strangers mashing on it.
What should I do now? I got a copy of truehexen 2019 and Hexen 2018 here, trying to figure out what I should do from here to make it look nicer and get the most out of this. The chip I used is an Aladdin XT+4032
