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.

      Has anyone else ever encountered a save file only working on one console? I have a Rayman 3 save that only seems to work on the 1GHz CPU, 128MB RAM console I got from N64freak, and I have no idea what's going on.
      I originally played the game on a softmodded 1.6, then ended up transferring the save to the upgraded 1.0 to continue playing on that console. After the PSU failed in the 1.0 and I managed to fix it, I wanted to back up the save in case it ever fails again on me. To my surprise, the save file doesn't want to work on either of the 3 Xboxes I tried it on, it only works on the 1.0, nothing else.
      When I try load the save from another console, I see this and it won't load:

      However, when I use the 1.0, it works as it should:

      I even tried copying the entire TDATA and UDATA folders from the 1.0 aside from the music, but I still got the same result. I have no idea what's going on.
      My only means of transferring saves is via FTP, but that worked when I transferred it to the 1.0, and works for all other games.

      It was listed as faulty, that it hangs on the Xbox logo. After sitting thinking I wonder will it error, my brother said Microsoft appeared on the screen. Apparently it seems to work, it just takes ages to boot, and the problem seems to be with the disc drive itself. There's no signs of leakage from the clock cap either, so I should remove that before it goes. 
      It's apparently another v1.1, and I plan to tsop it also. The main thing I need to do for now is give it a good cleaning and softmod it to get the eeprom. I don't trust the HDD because the spindle is whirring really loudly, so the eeprom is a priority, as is the clock cap.
      After changing the drive for a Thomson out of another console, it boots up normally. There must be something wrong with the actual PCB in the Samsung I got with it.
