They won't be until you put each XISO format dot iso file in separate subfolder along with a copy of the NKPatcher Please login or register to see this link.attach.xbe app renamed to default.xbe.  You also have to rename the internal XBE Title to the name you want each game to appear as in the replacement dashboard's Games menu.

Use UnleashX's File Explorer to rename the internal XBE Title of each copy of the attach app. 

Browse to the renamed attach app, default.xbe file, so it's highlighted and press the White button for the Select options menu to appear.  D-pad up to the Rename XBE Title menu item then press (A).  Use the onscreen keyboard to edit and save the game name.

After doing all of those steps for each game, they appear in the dashboard's Games menu.

Seems like an unnecessarily complicated way of getting games to work on a Xbox.

Rather than messing around with FTPing ISOs direct to the console why not extract them on PC using Qwix or C-Xbox Tool and then FTP them? The extraction usually takes very little time and with the actual files now available you can edit out the dashupdater and any other unwanted stuff too which should reduce the FTP time.

Because they take less space on the hard drive when there are lots of tiny files. On a 512GB+ partition, each of those files less than 64KB in size each take 64KBs, 1 cluster, of hard drive space to be stored.

 

There's also a script for XBMC to do the process for you.  Upload all the XISO format ISOs to your Games folder and the attach.xbe app and I believe it creates the subfolders, copies the attach.xbe app to it and moves the ISO there and changes the XBE title name to that of the game's default.xbe file found inside the ISO.

 

And, some games have filenames that are not allowed on an FATX formatted partition.  Names longer than 42 characters or with characters not allowed by the filesystem.

Have to try that with some XISOs. Don't really have any problem with space as I just delete existing games but keep the saves when I want to install a new one. As 95% of the games I have are installed from original disc, FTPing to and from a PC after converting them to XISOs just to save some space seems like quite a lot of unnecessary extra work.

Some games will not work as they have filenames too long for the FATX filesystem and can only be played from original media or a mounted (attached) XISO-format dot iso file.

Never come across that problem but that maybe because I often abbreviate even installed game XBEs names so they display fully in UnleashX  menus. There are some stupidly long games' titles that is very true eg. Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay but as they were not intended for HDD install I suppose that is mitigation.

It's not the name of the game, some are very long, but the name of the files stored on the hard drive.  Some games have files with names too long for the hard drive's FATX filesystem (>42 characters - include the dot and characters of the extension in the count).

The DVD filesystem has no such filename length restriction.  Thus, mounting an XISO with the attach app does not either.  To the Xbox, the mounted disc image appears to be a disc loaded into the DVD drive.

Here are three such games. 

  1. Toca Race Driver 2
  2. True Crime: New York
  3. Enter the Matrix

I don't recall if there are any more games that used this method to prevent modders from installing their game to the Xbox's hard drive.

I've tried launching tiger woods 2004 pal game via disc and just get blank screen ? is there a specific setup in the video options to get pal games to work once you change to NTSC ?

      Hi,
      I just replaced my Philips VAD6011/21 Disc Laser Lens with a Disc Laser Lens for Xbox SPU-3141 Philips Microsoft original from ZedLabz Please login or register to see this link.
      Unfortunately it is still not reading my xbox games discs.  I have the Rocky5 Softmod and it states a DVD drive status of "unknown".  It seems like I did it correctly and desoldered those two points on the new Disc Laser Lens.  Sometimes I will get the "Empty" status too.  
      I tried Pot tweaks on the old laser and then that helped for a very short time so I bought the new laser after it stopped working.
      Any ideas?
      Thanks!
