A Tiny Tutorial On How To Run Grim Fandango On Your XBox

Recommended Posts

Grab XDSL 7.0 here: Please login or register to see this link.

Once inside XDSL go to "mydsl" and then inside "System" install Wine.

Now go into the systems panel and go to sound, click yes to deactivate whatever is running, this will make sound work, it seems it doesn't work by default.

open firefox and download Please login or register to see this link. go into the file manager, rename .exe to zip and unpack, right click on grim demo exe and pick run with wine.

Simple as pie, most games will not run using this wine method cause the wine in Xdsl is ancient and there doesn't seem to be any 3d acceleration in wine (maybe somebody can port the latest wine to xdsl?) so grim runs i think in some sort of 3d software mode, but it's full speed.

You will need to solder usb ports to your fourth joystick port to use a keyboard/mouse to play grim fandango (thats what I did aeon ago) or buy a joystick2keyboardmouse adapter.

nice, need to try that, and fill a sheet with information about games which run on wine through XDSL.. Would try the Halo demo, maybe the custom edition will run too, that would be awesome.

Unlike x-dsl which you can have in a folder on your hdd with all your other stuff and boot it seems Gentoox might need the whole hdd space to work so i'll have to wait with trying it.

so I've spent like a day and a night doing the installation. Now the gui is zoomed, it's a Stardust Shallax Gentoox Home redistributable. Any ideas? 

 

upd:
can not find such fix like XDSL has built it, to fix the zoomed image.

      Hi all,
      I just bought an OG Xbox v1.1 with Xbit modchip (Evox 3.6 bios is loaded). I still have to open it up for cleaning and checking if the clock capacitor is still in place.
      Up until now, I had only softmodded my other Xbox.
      So, what should I do to this one? Can I update the modchip's bios with Hexen Tools, or should I use the old updater tool for Xbit?
      I guess I could still update the dashboard using Hexen tools, right?
      I'd really appreciate your help!

      Hello all, just got my xbox modded with a 2tb drive and Rocky5's Emustation, looking for some assistance. 
      Most of my roms are running well so far with the exception of N64. Now I know that it is set up to run the N64 set from Earthworm James. Trouble is, I cant find that pack anywhere at all, been searching for days now.
      I was wondering if anyone here knows where it is or has a link available, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

      Selling a unique system to a new owner, I put together a great console with unique installed custom parts with a stealth switch to choose between empowering a lighted display or a dark environment while gaming. 
        This console is carrying an Xecuter 3 signature mixed with XCM's fitted 3x hard drive bay module which allows you to switch between 3 different hard drives which contains three different dashboards.    On the primary dashboard running UnleashX is themed with my signature advanced new age dynamic themes that I personally created and only available to valued supporters.    In the inside of the console has dual custom LED heat sinks on the GPU and CPU branded by Vantec's rare out-of-production IceBerq 4 Pros.    HardWare:   v1.2 Xbox Dashboard TSOP X2 Bios Samsung DVD Drive (Rare)Xecuter 3 Jewel (Mad Modders Edition) - only one I have... (Rare)x2 Vantec IceBerq 4 Pro (CPU & GPU) - re-pasted with Arctic MX4 (Rare)Xecuter 3 (Christmas Edition) Chip - Includes bank selector on front (Rare) Xecuter solderless Xapt3r V1.0-1.5  Custom LED Rocker Switch (Powers LEDs On/Off) (Rare)XCM Xtender - Extends the Xbox hard drive capacity to 3 drives total. Custom Blue LED PCB face plate under glow bars - hooked up to rocker switch Custom Blue/Red front eject/power LED Custom Blue LED jewel PCB - hooked up to rocker switch Custom Blue LED controller ports x3 Stock 8GB Seagate Hard Drives.   Software:   Drive 1: UnleashX Dashboard Emulators Homebrew Applications   Drive 2: User Interface Dashboard Emulators Homebrew Applications Drive 3: XDK Lancher Dashboard Console Applications Pros: Has rare hardware Custom colored boot animation Config Live 3294 with recovery (flashed to work with v1.6 xbox as well) Ability to boot 3 different drives on the same Xbox Turn LEDs on and off with a switch   Cons: Some scratches or nicks on the console Xapt3r has a wire soldered to the D0 (pin broke off) - works better than before. XCM IDE cable cannot be removed from Hard Drives(will result in damage to the IDE cable) IceBerq 4 Pros are fans noisy (due to age)    FYI: If console fails to boot on arrival means the pin from the Xapt3r has fallen out, the bank select button was switched in transfer or chip has come loose (you can still access the inside). Keep in mind when taking the console apart or modifying it by any means do not remove IDE cables from the hard drives, they're basically plugged in permanently.   I like to keep customers up to date to know what they are buying if you have any questions please ask.   Selling as is.
