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.

      G'day all!
       
      i've recently got myself a soldering iron and am eager to TSOP my 1.1. I've not yet used the specific soldering iron (waiting for a practice kit to arrive in the mail) but i do have some experience with soldering so i generally know what i'm in for. The main issue is that the fear of messing something up and rendering the console useless is immense! I've barely used it as is so as to not wear out the hard drive, so it'd be a shame to have to bin it.
      What would be the correct method to join the required points. From many of the sources i've seen, the general strat (without using conductive ink or wire) seems to be
      apply solder to iron apply iron to points and move it around for no more than ~2 seconds pray that the points have been bridged is this correct? would it be a good idea to use flux on the points or would it not really do anything?
       
      Cheers!

      Tried it with 2 sets of component cables and had the same result. It's a 1.6 model and does this with various games, maybe 30 games total I've tried. Sometimes it doesn't do it all for 30min, then it'll flicker constantly for an entire hour. Super frustrating.

      Hello,

      I've been lurking around here for a couple days, but haven't found anyone with the same issue so I thought I'd ask.

      I have a v1.0, never modded, xbox (original and only owner). Last time I used it (about a year ago), it was working great, but when I turned it on the other day, it attempted to boot three times, then started flashing red and orange. I was able to get it to boot after restarting it a few times, and I played through a game for about 5 min (then game froze due to a scratch, I'm pretty sure), but I have not been able to get it to start up again since (just 3 reboots and FOAR). If I hit the disc eject button once it's FOAR, the TV will show the green blob come on screen (it freezes after less than a second), but I'll continue to hear the music that goes with it (haven't left it on long enough to see if it goes to main menu and i can hear the sound of changing menu selection). I've seen a few '3 reboots and FRAG' articles, so I'm curious if this is the same situation, but maybe error colors are different for the earlier xboxes?
      Based on what I've read so far, I've checked the following:
      Cleaned the innards of most of the dust (had never opened it up in my 18+ years of ownership) LPC traces are undamaged (even did continuity check for sanity sake) Reseated all connectors Checked PSU voltages -- this was an interesting one, all voltages were correct, except for the power on signal (pin 11/teal wire), which i measured to be be 2.6V, not 3.3V Clock cap wasn't bulging, but it does look like it leaked a little, so i removed that, cleaned the area, but I don't see any damaged traces I'm planning on replacing all the caps on the board as a next step, but I'm wondering if anyone has an idea for something else worth testing to figure out what might be causing the error state. I'm so curious if the 2.6V power on signal is an indicator of anything. Does that get set by the CPU or the PSU?

      Thanks in advance for any ideas or suggestions!
