Need Help With CXBX

Recommended Posts

So, basically, I have a .xbe for Brute Force, but every time I try to run it, I get the error message "Unable to determine default Xbox backbuffer." What does it mean?

Edit: Fixed, but I'm getting a new error saying "IDirect3D::CreateDevice failed"

Edit 2: I've decided it's not worth the trouble. Sorry for bothering you all.

The Intel graphics chip is not much of a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), more like a simple frame buffer driver chip, when compared to a higher-end nVidia GeForce GPUs.



Gabriel Mchedlidze posted in a Quora forum:

...Intel HD graphics chips are mostly in office computers and laptops. They are not good in gaming and/or rendering. ...

I suspect a higher-end GPU  with dedicated memory is required to run CXBX-Reloaded well.  Check the system specifications recommended to run CXBX-Reloaded.  Update: Brute Force may not be compatible/supported yet!

From https://github.com/Cxbx-Reloaded/Cxbx-Reloaded:


  • OS: Windows 7+ x64. 32-bit installations are not supported.
  • GPU: Anything that supports Direct3D 9 (HLE) and OpenGL 3.3 (LLE).

Check that the Intel HD 3000 supports the two graphics API requirements - Direct3D 9 or higher and OpenGL 3.3 or higher.

For Direct3D run DirectX Diagnostics program - Windows Key+R, in the pop-up run window in the Open box key-in dxdiag then click OK.

For OpenGL, you'll need to install a 3rd party application - OpenGL Extensions Viewer from realtech-vr.com and run it.

From what I read on the compatibility list section at github.com for Cxbx-Reloaded, Brute Force is not supported yet.

Not even really listed as a compatible game but one that has issues.

Other's have had it run further than you. However, it does not even get to a menu to be able to play it. 


Update: Other games are reported to have the same issue: IDirect3D::CreateDevice Failed


Cxbx-Reloaded is not ready to run Xbox games.  A few work but not every one.

I read it, and Volcanic had my same problem.  But immediately afterwards he writes that he has fixed it but not the procedure he has carried out.  And then he continues with another error message, which, however, does not concern me at the moment.

      Hi there, 
      Noob that just join this community for some solid advice/direction for my upgrade,  
      I have a working 1.6A xbox with a Super Aladdin Live modchip running XBMC on a 80 Gb IDE HDD
      My aim is to upgrade the HDD to a 500 Gb Sata HDD (I know I could go bigger) and also upgrade to Rocky 5 instead.... 
      I currently have:
      - The 80 wire/40 pin IDE cable (ATA 100/133)
      - IDE to Sata converter 
      - 500Gb Sata HDD
      What are my options? Do I have to hot swap the HDD with the disk drive with a program running on the xbox ?  
      Thanks in advance for any help or links for guides/programs to help me !!

      Hello there, I recently decided to give a second chance to my old Xbox, my parents bought it to me back in 2004 when I was 12 years old. it is a v1.0 and always has booted EvoX, even to this day, the problem is that I can't find any modchip or TSOP. Maybe it's my lack of expertise but I thought that EvoX only boot in a hardmoded machine, so where it is? And if there is no chip, how can it boot EvoX?
      I've already removed and cleaned the clock capacitor leak, no visible corrosion.
