About Me

  1. So out of curiosity I just downloaded the "Origins" 2Tb build, mainly to see what all the fuss was about and why people seemed to like it so much. But also I thought I'd see if I could maybe make use of the actual dash files and make a more reliable build using it. However, I just wrote the image to a hdd and so far have been checking it out on my PC with FatXplorer and tbh it is an absolute mess. Duplicated folders, little to no sense in the hdd organisation, random music albums (Papa Roach among others) and even a random movie (Central Intelligence) are just the start of the chaos. No wonder it has such a bad rep. I will try and make some sense of things dash wise (how it actually all fits together and works) as I do think there is some potential to MAYBE make a semi decent build from it. Maybe I'll call it Phoenix Origins No promises tho as tbh it is pretty much a bonfire of files all over the place, HeXen installer disc remains, files for a softmod along with configs for x2, IND and other hardmod stuff form years ago. Also anyone out there that has worked with the barebones origins XMBC skin please feel free to chime in with any hints/tips/anything regarding how to get the most out of the skin. It will be useful and appreciated EDIT- I am aware of the history of the build and how it was leaked before it was finished etc but in reality it seems miles away from being finished as it really is an "Absolute Casserole" of folders and junk un-needed files.
  2. Hi there. I'm sorry for my lack of knowledge of modding the OG Xbox. I've started collecting consoles and just bought an old modded OG Xbox on eBay. It has a silver toggle switch on the back, which enables/disables the mod chip. It's the version 1.0 OG Xbox. When I load it up it goes into the EvoX front end. When I go to the list of games, it shows quite a few on there. However, when I select one, it starts to load, and then resets back to the main modded menu. I've tried several random games on the list. Strangely though, ONLY the Monopoly game runs. I have also added more games via FTP linking but they do the same thing. I've added some photos and videos to illustrate the problem – https://imgur.com/a/i-bought-used-modded-og-xbox-games-on-wont-load-B3NYfcQ I believe the modchip installed is Akira v1 as shown in the photos. FYI, I removed the dead clock capacitor when I opened it up, and cleaned up any leakage which was minimal. All I want to do is run backup games. If the modchip is dead, I wondered if I could remove or just disable it via the silver switch at the back and then apply a softmod, such as the newest ENDGAME exploit, using the Rocky5 Xbox Softmodding Tool. I realise this might not be the way to go though. Any ideas? Do I need to check the bios? Or is this Xbox just no good? Thanks in advance for any help.
  3. Will you will buy any new xbox console and the controller from the upcoming three new xboxes in this year 2024 yes or no?
  4. Well, I built the encoder. L2 is a little crooked, but I'm lazy, so fuck it for now. I'm about to hook it up, so with me luck! @lopenator
  5. Hello everyone!, Blz? I'm doing a port of "The Orange Box" For OG Xbox using the official port of HALF-LIFE 2, The Project is already 90% finished and I'm in the last step which is REPACKAGE the files to .XZP (Only)....... In it will include; HALF-LIFE 2 (With some improvements), EPISODE ONE, EPISODE TWO AND PORTAL.... Does not contain TEAM FORTRESS 2 due to Xbox being too weak for it If someone help me create a repackager of .XZP files the game will be completed, anyone available?
  6. I am making the 128 mb mod to my console, I guess this situation is happening to me, I soldered the first memory and when doing the ram check, when starting the xblastOS the screen turns into pure frames or as in the attached image it looks distorted, what is this about? The memories are Samsung and are from another Xbox.. HELP!! I have carefully checked the pins to verify that I do not have jumpers or tin balls, in addition to that there is no short.
  7. Well... figured I'd show my "collection". First post will be my current 5 OG Xboxes, in order. From left to right: V1.1, X2 Lite w/ Cerbios 2.3.2 UDMA5, 160GB WD1600AAJB V1.6, X-Changer 2.2 w/ Cerbios 2.3.2 UDMA5, 200GB Maxtor 6B200R0 V1.4, genuine Aladdin XT Plus2 (Chip ID BF52) w/ Cerbios 2.3.2 UDMA5, 160GB Samsung SP1654N, recapped V1.6, ModXo on Raspberry Pi Pico USB-C w/ Cerbios 2.3.2 UDMA5, 1TB WD Caviar Green. V1.4 Crystal, ST TSOP w/ iND-BIOS 5004.67, 250GB WD Blue BONUS: Zephyr Elite 360 w/ 320GB Samsung HDD, Aurora dash and EXT_CLK over Coolrunner rev C1. - all running XBMC - Aladdin 1.4 and Pico 1.6 have had their cases painted - 1.4 is white/blue, and 1.6 is white/green. - 1.4 now sports Panasonic all over it, except PSU which has original caps. - 1.6 awaits a Startech adapter - I have a "narrow type" JM20330 adapter there for the time being. - all use a single selfmade HD Component pack, from a Xbox 360 cable, of course - the Crystal was an interesting story of going thru a gypsy ghetto to purchase it Up next might be 360s. I have a lot of those to go thru so be sittin' tight!
  8. Hi all, I'm hoping there's a reasonably simple way to add CoinOPS launch icon alongside the Applications, Games, Emulators folders/icons on the Root of the dashboard? I've tried adding the source to have the CoinOPS icon (folder) appear on Root, next to the Applications, Games and Emulators icons. Then within the CoinOPS folder I created a shortcut .xbe within its own folder that points to the defaultsplash.xbe used by CoinOPS, this does point to and loads CoinOPS from its actual location but is a bit messy imo. I also don't know how to create an icon picture for this, within Xbe Shortcut Maker 2.0, it asks for Custom Icon (.xbx), I've tried googling where to go from here but can't find anything relevant to help. I've found some .xbx files and tried using them but nothing shows for the icon, also tried small .jpg files etc. I also tried copying your _resources folder for CoinOPS 8 from the Artwork Installer to this folder which does show the artwork, but also when accessing this folder from the dash root it shows the "_resources" folder as an option to open which I ideally want to be hidden. There must be a better way to create this icon within XBMC4Gamers? How have you all got this simplified to just work? Hope you don't mind tagging you @Rocky5 ? I'm sure the question has come up before and you'd know if there's an easy way to add a shortcut without much mess
  9. It was booting OK before I removed the 3 old capacitors near the CPU/Power connector, also the clock battery. I replaced the 3 capacitors and now get this issue (see attached video with sound stutter at the end). I have removed/replaced all 3 capacitors again, also tried mounting them on the underside of the motherboard for testing loose out of case, but get the exact same results, even doing them 1 at a time etc. I have visually checked the board front and back for solder splashes, trace rot and other abnormalities with magnifying glass, everything looks great! I have had this issue on a previous Xbox and identified the issue to possible 2 capacitors which I replaced and it has worked fine for months after replacing. So, this issue still does seem to be capacitor related but I've done what I can to try and fix, and would like to know if other people have had this boot issue and what it was that fixed the issue? Thanks 1.2_1.3 Boot Hang + Sound Stutter.avi
  10. >Easy XDK Installer V1.4.1< "Legitimate Edition" ------------------------------------------------------------- This is an easy way to turn your retail console into a debug kit. There are two main options: 1. Install the XDK dashboard as an "app", meaning that you will have the option to load the dash as an app which will be marked "XDK Launcher" in your apps list. This will boot the dash by booting a Debug version of Cerbios through PBL, which forces the load of the XDK dashboard. 2 "Standalone mode" wipes your C and E partitions and turns the console into a full-on debug kit. The installer also provides the means to flash a debug enabled Cerbios bios through this option. This should cover most case uses. However I will add features and modify the installer over time as I receive feedback. Also included is every single piece of software imaginable on the PC side. Everything from Windows XP itself, to Visual Studio 2003, to the XDK installer, and of course, the VMWare image is linked below. The XDK version numbers are a lie. 5849.16 is the latest version of the XDK. Please remember to download and install the virtualbox additions ISO. This makes the VM experience much more pleasurable and XP is better able to work with the VM software, also installing graphics drivers! I also invite you to try to use this installer after creating yourself a fully fledged development kit. It works perfectly for mine! Please do not use vx.dxt in your "DXT" folder. It serves no purpose and causes some things to not load and to crash. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Installer Link: Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VthT4LHLhR7Ds8fAff04eA4uLNe4-Xht/view?usp=drive_link VMWare XDK Image Link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Du_3Fk0s2gIYu9DBbMXabJiMSRf8KSK5/view?usp=drive_link VirtualBox Additions ISO: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xXHHs7lNT9WeB_wWceMRpxi6a2CDtYu5/view?usp=drive_link -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.4.1 -Changed XML commentary, installer messaging and structure, as well as finishing readme's for each section and adding further explanation of operations so that people can have a better understanding of what is being done and how. -Added ability to say no to flashing Cerbios at the end of the Standalone installs. It is a hardcoded debug bios that is flashed. However, there is a debug ini that is installed anyway, so if you don't want to flash a hardcoded debug Cerbios for any reason, you will be given the choice not to flash and the debug ini will still enable you to boot into the XDK launcher. -Fixed a bug that copied the incorrect bios to HDD when selecting option to flash back to retail bios under "Back to Retail" section. 1.4.0. - Fixed a few more videos. DAMN XMV files. -.- - Added a boot menu where you have the option to launch this installer in different modes: -- Non BFM DHCP mode (Default!). -- Non BFM Static IP mode. -- BFM DHCP mode. -- BFM Static IP mode. - This disc and all the XBE's are now usable with the ENDGAME DVD Launcher if needed. - Added the option to install the 5849 XDB for XBox as App and Standalone. You now have the option to use use 4627 or 5849 as an App or Standalone if you like. -Removed vx.dxt (VerifierX) from 5849 XDK installs. It causes crashes with things like XBlast and PBL. It was causing the installer to crash when flashing with XBlast and trying to use the PBL "Retail" mode in the XDK Launcher.
  11. I am so angry. I was convinced that the traces on the motherboard on my Xbox were fine, and it was that board. But no. The light doesn’t show up, and the power button is finicky. All that I’m left with is an Xbox with messed up plastic, and a hand that’s dying from how hard it was to get the face plate off. If it’s the traces, then that means I have to buy Conductive Glue (Not Soldering), a Multimeter, and some wires. So, any advice. Remember, it’s not only the LED, but also the Power button.
  12. I need to look at the Power/Eject board on my Xbox. But before that I need to get off the front panel. And OH. MY. GOD. This is SO hard! I tried just pulling up on the three clips, prying the face plate off with a screw driver, or even doing both, but nothing! I took off the controller ports too, but still! What on god am I doing wrong?
  13. I try to install games to Xbox . Dvd2xbox wouldn't launch so I connected the console to my PC to transfer the files and reinstall the dvd2xbox application. Transfer is normal no issues by nothing starts . Neither the HDD ready games I had and most the dvd2xbox . I tried music videos and work perfect every time . Tried to transfer other dashboards like unx emustastion xbmc and all work fine. The issues are always with games and dvd2xbox application . I downloaded "HDD ready" from an archive to further test if maybe my files are bad but same. Tested different versions of dvd2xbox same . In all launchers it just goes black and I have to reboot
  14. First say hello to the members! After years i found my xbox again . I have a 1.0 with a xecuter 1 modchip and i replaced the dvd drive to a Samsungs SD 616. I thought i would be nice to have a modifed box with more than my 80GB HDD. So tried my best. I solderd out the old modchip, replaced it with a cheap aladdin from aliexpress an removed the capacitor for the clock. Now i have the problems. I got an error 16 when i started up the box. No EvoX logo is shown on the screen. No DVD like OGXbox Installer ist working so far. The led on the modchip ist red when turned on. I tried this with the old cable and old hdd. I think the modchip is not working. What are the possible problems? Did I some mistakes with soldering? Is the modchip garbage? Should i flash the chip out of the modchip. If this is correct. Witch cheap programmer should i use. Thanks for your help!. eisbier
  15. Hey guys so anyways, I was wondering about installing sdl for the Microsoft xdk for the original Xbox that lantus made back in the day, and also is it included in the vm that was included with the easy xdk installer?
  16. Anyone know where to find the source code for the Xbox version of ScummVM? The last one I recall was version 1.4 or around there.
  17. My Xbox is running a 160 GB IDE from 2007 or something. I needed to ask this about 3 years ago, I used Crunchbite's (on Homebrew Discord) 8 GB Etcher image to prepare the new drive then iirc I used the XBox Formatter to make the partitions (which automatically set the cluster size to 16 KB) then I copied all the C:\ drive content from the original 8 GB HDD via FatXPlorer and also transferred some games and homebrew. And at that time when I was using the stock HDD my Xbox was giving me constant 10-11 mb/s on my diy crossover cable connection to my laptop. After I put that new HDD in I didn't notice that right away but the max transfer speeds I get are around 3-7 mb/s on the same crossover ethernet cable. Is it related to the cluster size or is the HDD just bad or on it last legs?
  18. Hello! After months of focusing primarily on the Nintendo Wii, the Electron Shepherd team has just released a new product that we are thrilled to share: the Xbox2HDMI module! This tiny, power-packed module takes in the Component video and digital audio output from the Original Xbox and outputs an HDMI signal with embedded Dolby Digital Surround Sound (if that audio setting is enabled in your Xbox’s settings). This module utilizes a fully custom PCB with a higher quality, next generation IC compared to what is typically used on the widely available Wii2HDMI and VGA2HDMI modules that are readily available online. If you are not happy with those modules, then you will absolutely be happy with these. This module efficiently supports the 480i, 720p, and 1080i resolutions that are default to the original Xbox. These units can be bought with ease on our store located here: https://electron-shepherd.com/xbox2hdmi/ Please let use know if you have any questions about this or any other product we currently offer! - Shane from Electron Shepherd LLC https://twitter.com/ElectronShep
  19. I guess I deleted my copy of it, who knows. Does anyone in the forum have it and able to update the download links?
  20. I’ve got a complete copy of The Thing for sale. Disc has some minor ware but the game works perfect. I reached level 8 of 10 with zero issues, only selling bc I ultimately don’t enjoy the game as much as I had hoped I would. It is super cool though. I’m in the twin cities of Minnesota, and could do local pick-up or shipping. I’m asking $20 for it, plus shipped. I accept Cash, PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, & Zelle.
  21. Hello. The Grendel Engine (In A Creation) has had a lot of development done with the first NPC programmed in. Now it should follow a path. I'm currently stuck in thoughts about my engine's pathfinding which is gonna be an A* system. My plan is to use a connection system for optimization but are stuck on how to implement it. The nodes are scattered around the level and are connected via links to visible and nearby nodes and it creates a path for the NPC to follow from the nearest node (From the NPC) to the point that is nearest the end node. Then when close enough the NPC moves straight to the point (Instead of the end node's own position). This tutorial gave me some insight on it but I need to convert it to use D3DXVECTOR3 coordinates instead. Anyone has anything to say to help me here? It's needed for now. Meerjel01
  22. Sooo..... chinese IDE 80 way cable to sata adapter (Master jumper available and enabled)... "aladdin advance" modchip with SST chip. 2TB drive yada yada... been working fine for years. with Evox Wanted Cerbios because... y'know - new toysnstuff.... Flashed the default 2.3.1 Beta - All working well - lovely stuff. Then... I thought I'd try the one with UDMA4 on the end. Now - no video output. At all. my TVs all say (no signal)... This is with component and with composite. Green lights come on on power on - flashing if I push the eject button to turn on. (I heard there was a "safe mode" udma2). But alas no video. Did my flash go bad? It seemed to complete the flash just fine in EvolutionX flasher for both the standard 2.3.1 Beta, and for the "UDMA4" version. But dead now. Any ideas? zero cost option I guess is remove the modchip and TSOP flash (I think it's a 1.4 board definitely not 1.6)? Or try to get a disc to load hexen 2021??? the DVD drive seems to try to open (I can force it with the little pokey hole thing - the eject rubber band is dry)... Or do I have to buy a chip flasher... wanna avoid money spend if possible! lol! Thanks folks!
  23. This thread will demonstrate how the xbox jewel can be removed, and in a pair of follow-up posts how a hole for it can be made on the xbox cover, all in a very low-tech manner. I'm not confident enough to call these tutorials, but they may be helpful. First: removing the jewel. I grab a couple feet of dental floss and stuff it under the edge of the jewel with a card or what have you. Then I dribble some rubbing alcohol down there, because in my experience rubbing alcohol acts as a mild solvent on the adhesive pad thingy underneath. Whatever helps. By the way it was another modder, not me, who invented the floss method. I start flossing while keeping the arms of the floss in that letter U shape. I'm going to add more alcohol in a minute and re-position the floss at the other side of the jewel then continue working it. After a while the floss approaches the middle of the jewel and it starts to bind, that's when I add some mineral oil to lubricate everything. Pretty much any type of oil will do though. The whole mess starts to look like this... Getting farther in, the floss wants to bind again despite the oil. I don't want it to snap. I lift one of its arms to a 90 degree angle and slowly work the floss back into action. Eventually the jewel is off. This took maybe 10 minutes.
  24. Hello, good morning. I thought in an interesting feature for XBMC4Gamers and it is the following: - As you know if we have the fullset on the HDD, this is a lot of games (nearly 400). I realized that every time that XBMC4Gamers loads, it just selects by default the first game. Could it be possible to add an option in XBMC4Gamers to just "select by default the last executed element on XBMC4Gamers startup"? Thanks!
  25. I’m no doctor but I think I might have diagnosed what was wrong with this one. It’s the worst that I’ve seen, but quite sure it’s pretty tame compared to what some of you have seen…so it got me thinking it might be a fun / gross discussion…what’s the worst condition you’ve seen…bugs, rodent remnants, fire, utter destruction. Share pics if you have them!
