Freefall 3050ad Unreleased XBoX Game

Recommended Posts

If no one had seen this yet, just yesterday Modern Vintage Gamer released a game called FreeFall 3050AD for the OG Xbox, which he helped finishing after 15 years being lost!

 

The links to the game are in the Youtube video below! This is really wonderful :)

I love Modern Vintage Gamer's videos. He has a real passion for the OG Xbox, and I didn't realise that he was so involved in developing for it.

 

He is quite handy porting emulators and working with code. He definetely loves the Xbox and hopefully he finds out about this forum, spread the word to him, he can be incredibly benefitial to the scene, specially now that some guys are trying to bring back Xbox live to the original Xbox. His help would be really great to have.

Has anyone given this a spin yet? The concept is neat, but the game itself is definitely rough and I can imagine this wouldn't have sold gangbusters if it got a full retail release.

Either way, I'm all for this releasing! I love stories like this, reminds me of Geist Force finally releasing for the Dreamcast.

Anarchy that's really wonderful! But I have a question (I dont want to flood the forum) do you guys know of an alternative to Xbox4gamers dashboard?

The thing for me, I play on a CRT, and the fonts and all user interface in Xbox4gamers is super small and I can hardly read anything. Do you guys know of something more like UnleashX (in terms of size, Crt friendly) dashboard, that has cover support?

 

Thanks and sorry for all the questions.

UnleashX has cover support. This icon i posted here is for my unleashx set and is not compatible with XBMC4gamers. Shrink this PNG down to 128 x 128, label it "Icon.png" and put it in the games main directory (F:\Games\Freefall\Icon.png). If the icons are all small enough (128x128 is good, 256x256 overloads unleashx too fast and it crashes), unleashx can support up to a 750gb drive full of games with icons attached. This also works with "Preview.xmv" or "Preview.wmv" for preview videos in unleashx too, you just have to have the right skin, that has the features activated, not all do. Here are a couple videos of my current "for sale" boxes, just so you can see the menu.

Oh that's wonderful! Do you have a set of icons you can share? Don't mean to be lazy but you seem to have put a lot of work in this. If you don't mind sharing, I will be really glad!

Thanks you for the feedback Anarchy

I spent months collecting video's for every game. I dont have it all extracted and packaged yet. You can dig through the files of some games and get lucky. Freefall is one of them. COPY F:\Games\Freefall\media\presdata\Intro.xmv --TO-- F:\Games\Freefall\ And then rename it to Preview.xmv.

After that you should have an icon and preview video on unleashx

I would definitely be happy to share some files with you but we would have to connect on facebook. i dont want to blow a forum up. Until i get it all extracted and packaged up, its not something i want to publicly release. There are some main pieces of it i can give you to get you started though.

The XBMC4Gamers artwork is coming soon, I collaborated with the guy who's making it to make mine. He's got a couple more things to go, like a Disc Art and maybe a Fan Art still. He's waiting to release it for MVG's approval. MVG is the one who provided the original high def cover scan that we used for this. There aren't any good scans online. I will update this feed if i hear anything.

      So this is my struggle, I bought a japanese Sega Saturn model 2 more than a year ago. The power switch on it came completely destroyed. No refunds for me, because it wasn't the seller fault, etc.
      After 1 year of procrastinating, I tried to fix my Saturn. And believe it or not, I found the part I was looking for to fix the power switch!! I could not believe it, because I live in Chile, near the south pole, and an old tech geezer had the part I was looking for!
      I was so happy! I fixed it, so I thought, but I came down with the reality that now the PSU was completely dead. Aesthetically the PSU is perfect!! Nothing blown, nothing cracked, and nothing corroded. I already tried to fix it with the help of a great guy on Reddit, but to no avail.
       
      So here it is my idea, could anyone in this wonderful community spare with me a Saturn PSU? A PAL 220v PSU hopefully? I have in my possesion three 220v OG Xbox PSU's and one 110V American OG Xbox PSU.
       
      I could give any of those PSU's in return for a PAL Sega Saturn PSU, my PSU's are perfect and all working great! My best regards to everyone! You have always been great to me.

      Hello everybody,
      i got a Xbox 1.1 with Xecuter3 chip installed (soldered, purple one) here. It comes with a power and a component cable. The compontent cable was made by myself (3rd party plug + og sd-av cable) and does not show any noise (no ghosting or etc., refer to pictures). In addition the package includes a Duke controller and a controller s. Everything is in very good shape and works perfectly, only the Duke's cable insulation got a little bit loose that does not affect the the functionality in any way.
      I did also some refurbishment:
      - Clock capacitor was removed
      - mobo's top side was cleaned with spirit (94% alc.)
      - fresh thermal paste was applied on cpu and gpu
      - the jammed Samsung DVD-drive was replaced with a Philips DVD-drive.
      - installed a Samsung 400gb HDD (HD400LD, IDE) with coinops 8 massive and 80+ xbox games pre-installed (total of over 4000 games)
       
      This package costs 450 € + shipping fee (via PayPal, shipping from Germany, EU only). Feel free to ask me any question.
       
      Best regards

      Hello everybody,
      I've been reading the forums for a few months, and I have to request something that is very dearly to me. It comes after the small intro.

      I have a previously modded Xbox OG, but I failed I reckon and it only boots the official bios now. I want to thank my dad for showing what gaming was back in 1994, and purchasing me a Dreamcast in 1999 and the Xbox in 2002...Nostalgia Highway to Memories Camp...😔✌🏽️

      So : The Year is 2020, and now I want to have a definitive ultimate version/edition of my Xbox that've kept for almost two decades.

      I've seen CPU, RAM, DVD reader and belt, capacitors, IDE/SATA cables replacements or upgrades, the HDMI mod and the GPU overclock. This all made me have fantaisies, I am too little knowledgeable about the electronics modding and skills.
      Basically I am searching for someone that can mod my Xbox and upgrade the specs. I am living in the area next to the Border between Switzerland and southern Germany.
      I don't know what are the exact component bust my requirements is to be able to at least play games with patched .xbe for the DLCs(that I purchased back then, looking at PGR2 and SWBF2)(I still have all physical games with me) and 720p patches as well as some N64, PS1 and Dreamcast emulators with HDMI output (I have the Scart Advanced Pack & HD AV Pack imported from US). I have two Xboxes. One is a v1.1, the other 1.6. Both have a 500Gb HDD. Everything can be cleared and wiped. Softmod must be anyway.

      The purpose for my Xbox is to be the Leisure Room console with couch/cabinet setup. It hasn't a commercial purpose.
      A typical scenario is : I want to show my friends old gems and just play from time to time with my brother who shared the experiences with me (I am the elder brother).
      So it has a purely gaming use of OG Xbox games and Retroarch emulator. As well as maintaining tools for archiving and updating

      I am confused, it's true, about modchips having only used softmods. A Modchip is a hardmod right ? Which Modchip is the most developer or last updated?
      I am thinking about the Xecuter 3 and X-Chip ones after looking through the 4th Gen comparison chart in the forum here.

      I always wondered why people would use many launchers and different OS, with different features like remote media or other networking services?
      I don't want to have too much things. It must be pretty straight forward for gaming : clear, quick and clean.
      I hope N64 Freak (even when he/you said a month ago you're not actively offering them for long anymore), Neighbor or some one knowledgeable reads this 😍

      Thank you for reading, and I'm glad to have happy times in the forums !
