When I first thought about doing this I never expected it would come together...
None of this would have been possible without Ryzee119's work on the CPLD firmware!

Quick demonstration of adding bios from a USB device, dimming feature and full RGB front panel and controller ports.

NOTE: Due to poor lighting it is difficult to distinguish between some colors: "Green and Amber", "Cyan and White"...

Xenium Bundles

The below bundles include everything one would need for a complete installation,
A basic 30 to 40 watt soldering iron should be more than enough for the job.
The RGB controller ports require some cutting, I would really recommend a cheap
Dremel knock off from your local hardware store with a cutting wheel/blade...

Hello,

The OpenXenium is open sourced but my designs are not, only I sell them...

I apologies for the shipping but there's not a lot I can do about it.

I recently had a customer from the UK who bought 2 Massive Bundles,

one for himself and another for a friend, so I assume they went half's in shipping.

I think I can ship up to 4x Massive Bundles in a single box without shipping going up in price.

I'm allowed up to 500 grams, a single Massive Bundle including packaging is 150 grams.

The 2x Massive Bundles worked out to be 250 grams...

I might be open to deals on packs of four bundles to allow for resale.

Oh, I forgot to mention it here...

But I've been giving a 10% discount to everyone who buys direct via PayPal.

I posted this on my main thread over at EmuXtras but that might help you out with postage.

The full price might end up being my eBay price whenever I get around to doing that.

I hope this helps, Nem

Limited Special Offer

I will be doubling the discount to 20% for Massive Bundles with either "Black" or "White" mod-chips!
After the discount it will be $80AUD plus shipping, I only have a limited supply of 4x Black and 4x White available,
Once they have sold out that's it!

599253468ccae327ae506ee3d592882e157df7c2

I'm wanting to discontinue "Black" and "White" mod-chips as they are not selling as well as the "Blue"
and it will save me much drama with logistics and when consulting with potential customers.
I also want this to help stimulate some sales so that I may raise the funds to secure components
and equipment to finish the planned total batch of 100x Massive Bundles!


Impacts to Shipping

Link: AusPost Important Updates

Despite warnings I havn't had any major issues with customers parcels arriving,
I have just checked all the tracking numbers that I have and most of them have been delivered.
There are currently 3 parcels in transit that I'll be keeping a close eye on...

The only issue I've had so far was a parcel that got held in L.A. for a bit longer than normal,
but the customer has since received he's parcel!

Personally I've ordered a number of things on Ali-Express or other sources located in china,
I'm only having issues with one order but otherwise everything else has arrived.
On two occasions I actually received the parcel earlier than expected only taking 4 days...

Great work and nice video... Those PWM demos are able to change the original front LED color as well.

By default they are all set to "green", therefore the controller ports are currently "dimmed" where the front panel is "bright".

By changing the last string in each line from "0F" to "FF" will make both modules "bright".

I'll make the changes and upload new revision of the "Xenium Essentials" download on my main thread for you....

Just want to pop in and say I just got done installing everything from the massive bundle but the USB ports and wow.....Nemesis does top notch work! The package took about 5 weeks to get here, but that isn't his fault, but because of current shipping issues due to COVID-19. He also checked up with me a couple times to see if the package had arrived. Definitely recommend for anyone looking to install one of the premium old school chips without needing to solder the components to a blank board from a kit.

Status: Available

I've sent a small batch of Xenium Massive Bundles to a good friend in the U.S.
who was kind enough to offer assistance in distribution by holding stock for me.

The following offer is for the United States only as shipping to Canada is too expensive,
It's actually cheaper for me to ship to Canada by DHL Express from Australia!

      Hi all, I've lurked here for a while now. This is a great forum to get info from. Thank you.
      Question - I've been working on XBoxes for a while now, and I just got my hands on a 1.0 with a dead Thompson drive and an even deader original Seagate hard drive (showing error 7). Upon opening the case, I realized it had an old modchip on the underside of the board:
      https://imgur.com/ZGJwShp
      Does anyone know what modchip this is? I'm mostly curious what that chip is. It's a very clean install and I've never seen one like it.
      If I tweak the laser pot and get the DVD drive working, will this modchip be able to boot Hexen? I have an Aladdin XT chip and a new laser coming in the mail, but they're a month away. I'm wondering if I can get the drive running just long enough to boot Hexen and install a new hard drive, maybe TSOP the box and then remove this older modchip.
      Thank you in advance!

      Hello friends!
      I'm looking to make this new Modchip project called Redux.
      My question is which software to use to place the "VHDL" file to generate the .jed or .svf files in order to program the I.C. Lc4652?
      My thanks to Kekule for the project and his collaborators!
