New To Modding, Need a Little Help.

Recommended Posts

I'm new to modding and basically have near zero computer knowledge.

I downloaded and unpacked Eartwormjames's 212 pack and I'm a little lost on where to put everything.

I'm running the Rocky5 emustation and have a few roms sets running, but the 212 pack is giving me a headache.

I'm using filezilla and have moved the roms from the roms folder to the n64 roms folder on my xbox, they are recognized but I get black screen when trying to launch a game.

I'm assuming the surreal6.0 needs placed somewhere, or that maybe the 212 pack needs placed somewhere as a whole? 

Any help, as always, would be greatly appreciated. Going from no computer experience to the xbox mod has been a pretty steep learning curve.

Yes it was, and yes I did.

But, it says to copy the whole surreal6.0 folder to my xbox, but I dont know where to put it, I know if I put it along the wrong file pathway, it probably won't work.

I already have surreal5.3 (I believe), wouldn't surreal6.0 interfere with that?

I'm very new to the whole file management and computer thing, the instructions are probably very easy to understand if someone is used to this kind of thing, but I am not.

I'm picking things up as I go, but still far from where a lot of people are in the modding community.

After some trial end error trying to get this pack to run, I did have a limited amount of success. The only time I was able to get Rocky5's emustation to recognize and list the games is when I put the roms directly I to the roms folder for n64 in the f drive. Now, they still wouldn't run, I'm assuming that I will have to move each main folder in the pack into its corresponding location in the f drive. There are a couple that dont have corresponding spots already, skins and saves. I'm guessing the saves should be put I to the n64 roms folder, but what about the skins?

Does this line of reasoning sound correct? Maybe someone on here has some experience with getting this pack successfully installed and can pass along that knowlege.

      I have a 2 modded xbox which have been sitting in a box for 10+ years - one is chipped (bought it this way and don't know the chip), and the other softmodded (I did it with the Bert & Ernie exploit 10+ years ago).  I recently took them out and having a great time playing some old games on them.  
      So at a local yard sale I picked up a xbox for $5.  I want to softmod it, but forgot all the details/instructions.  I just ftp''ed into my softmodded and see I renamed the c:/fonts to c:/f0nts and in the original c:/fonts have the 2 bert and ernie files.  From memory I think the xbe files on the root are the modded dashboard.   So my question is, if I copy Bert and Ernie to the c:/fonts and copy all the files from my root to the new xbox, is that all I need?   
      Also, before the mod do I need to update the dash/kernel - does it matter?  I don't plan to use any xbox live, so can I leave the kernel as-is?
      Also, the way I softmodded my previous unit was by hotswapping using my chipped xbox.  If I recall, I need to boot both, then unplug the ide cables from each and quickly plug the unmodded hdd to the chipped xbox - I then have access to the hdd files to add the files.  
      Any advice would be appreciated.  Or if you have a link to an instruction page that would be great too (I searched google but nothing exists anymore).

      Hi - I ordered a Star Tech IDE to SATA connector and have a spare 500GB SATA drive - will the IDE cable in the xbox work as it is a 500GB drive or will I need to invest in a 80 Pin cable?

      Hello, after testing emustation and XBMC4gamers i decided to go with the latter. The only thing left to do is for me to find the artwork (poster, fanart) for all the emulators. All i'have right now is xbox emulator resources. Need to find the old atari, coleco, ect.... Hopefully a pack like Resources4XBMC v1.0. 
      Also, how do i change the background main menu background like in the youtube videos?
