Help With Roms Not Being Transferred

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. New to the forum here. First I'd like to say thank you to the community for keeping such an awesome gaming device alive! It was my first step into modding and I've been addicted since haha. Anyway...

I'm looking for a rom pack with/without emulators that is setup specifically for a stock 8gb HDD softmodded xbox, to be used with FTP or from a disc. I've run into some issues with transferring files via Please login or register to see this link. One has to do with the naming limit, and another is an error I can't figure out. But of the SNES library only, there are about 170 games that won't transfer. So I was looking for a pre-made pack of adjusted names and such that my xbox would take without issues. Not sure if one exists or not. It's a project that would consume a huge amount of my time which is why I'm asking for help.

Even if there is a way to batch-rename them, that would work also. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The closest thing I know of to such a premade pack would be, eh, CoinOPS? You could download CoinOPS massive and I suspect that would get what you need. Personally I can’t stand CoinOPS because i think the front end is gaudy.

 

I’ve a few SNES games that wouldn’t transfer and never bothered to fix. Check the names of the affected games. Are they longer than 42 characters, including the file extension?

they would have to be shortened if so. The snes library I believe is well under one thousand, but there’s also a limit of 4096 files in one particular folder on FATX. 

Batch renaming often isn’t going to give you something very close to the original names, but if the length of the names is an issue on option would be to drop the affected games into a folder on your computer, CTRL-A to select all of them, and rename any one of the files. This would rename EACH of those files to whatever you choose to the name you entered, with the number appended. 

 

Such as:

thisdidntfit1

thisdidntfit2

thisdidntfit3

 

and so on. In the end you’d still have to rename them but you could do it over time.

RessurectionXtras sets are made specifically for the xbox. I can confirm SNES & Megadrive sets are 100% compatible with respect to filename length etc.

Sets also come with artwork and other media etc.

That’s the way to do it, then!

I will definitely have to look into this! I did do quite a bit of searching and stumbled upon a free program that is a god send. It is called Bulk Rename Utility. It still takes a bit of time to adjust things but compared to doing each individual file, it's a god send.

First off :

Can't send anything with a " , " in the filename

ex: 

Tick, the (USA, Europe).zip

Both commas will make the transfer not work. Had to rename hundreds of files because of it

And long names. No more than 21 characters per.

I've tried the "No Intro" downloads, but they still have commas.

Trying the "ressurectionXtras" way now to see if it's better ....

      Hello,
      I am currently getting red and green flickering artifacts on my screen with all games with my Xbox. Not sure what the problem is. I have tried multiple different AV cables, televisions, and games thinking thinking that might have been the problem. But, it seems there is some major graphical error wrong with my Xbox, and googling the problem has not been easy. Does anyone know if there is a fix
       
      Thanks,
      Sam

      Hello, long-time Xbox user here, and you may recognize my username from many other forums.  I softmodded my console ages ago using SID 5.1.2.  Recently I wanted to try it out on Xlink Kai, but I couldn't join any games in Halo or Halo 2.  When I launch Halo, I get an orange ring for 15 seconds before the menu arrives.  My profile is no longer there.  Halo 2 tells me the DLC is damaged.  Strange.  So based on a few guys in the Xlink lobby suggestion, I went and used Rocky5's soft mod Quick Upgrade, which seemed to work.  I had to fix a few things to restore the UnleashX dashboard skin I was using before.  Anyway, I'm still having the same issues with the Halo games. 
      1. First question, why would I be unable to join System Link rooms?  I verified Xlink can see my console fine.  I even tried to create a game but was told I appear to be "offline."
      2. I'm wondering if the Game Saves are screwed up and causing the issues, but I don't know of any good Save Managers to try.  I attempted to open the MS Dashboard, but I get a Service Error page.  
      3. The system is hooked up to a CRT in 480i, so I cannot load XBMC or XBMC4Gamers because they seem to be defaulting to 720p, and the picture is a scrambled mess.  How can I change that?
      Thanks!

      Yesterday I ftp'd Conker Live and Reloaded to my Xbox v.1.0 , however the game doesn't boot up, instead it displays a message saying: "there is a problem with your disc, it may be damaged or dirty". I tried patching the game with ACL in DVD2Xbox but nothing happens, I still get the same error. Is there something more I'm not taking in account? 🙁
