From the yabuse emulator's compatibility list - Please login or register to see this link.

The House of the Dead is not supported and Virtua Cop is playable. (Not sure of the PC system specs required to make games run fast enough to call them playable.)

From what I've read, it should play from ISOs.

The Xbox may not be fast enough to call them playable.  128MB memory upgrade should help as well as overclocking the CPU.


I'm going to try a game - Virtua Cop 2 (J) in bin/cue format.  I will report back what happens trying to play it on the Yabuse A2 Unofficial release for the Xbox.

I've not had much luck getting the few games I've tried to run.

The one light gun game I tried to run, Virtua Cop 2, says it is loading but never starts after the title screen.

The file format mentioned in the Yabuse compatibility thread at emuxtras.net is bin/cue however the emulator runs them from the dot bin file.  If you have no sound to rename the current dot bin file to something else, edit the game's cue file. In the first line, change the dot bin file referenced to its new name and change the extension of the cue file to bin.  Run the game from the edited dot bin (the cue) file that references the old dot bin file that you renamed.. 

I'll continue testing a few more as I find them.

      Hi, my precious modded Xbox is a UK device and I have been working on the basis that the PSU is 220v only and will need to be replaced with a 110v supply. Can anyone confirm that this is the case - if it can handle multi voltage then that would be a great surprise. Obviously if I need to replace the PSU thats fine - would anyone have any tips / pitfalls I need to be aware of??
