Downloading, Unzipping, Transfering Emulators and Roms

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I have been stuck on this for a few days now.

I have managed to softmod my 1.6 (broken IDE slowed me down but I finally got the HDD switch out to work).

Now I'm trying to find out how to download Emulators and ROMs. I'm networked with my xbox on my old ThinkPad running WinXP. I can't find a FileZilla that works with WinXP. I found Stella for Atari 2600 but I can't figure out how to get it to unzip or not unzip and then transfer to the xbox. I've also downloaded River Raid ROM.

I can see the folders... then I go to my Unleashed screen on Xbox and I see the files ONLY in FILE EXPLORER. I find the file for Stella and River Raid but then I push A and nothing happens. It just sits there.

I'm frustrated. All the videos and tutorials SKIP the download and zip or unzip and just have the right file ready to transfer. Do I need an FTP? Or can I just use network connection?
Do I use WinRAR to unzip both the Emu file and the ROM?

Grrr.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Gator

this filezilla I linked should work on windows XP. To put emulators on for unleashX is really easy. Assuming you have a stock HDD, you go into your E drive, and make a folder named "emus". Then you extract your emulator(use WinRar), and drag it into the emulators folder. Make sure its not double foldered, for example : E:\emus\Surreal64\Surreal64\default.xbe. This would be wrong. It should be something like E:\emus\Surreal64\default.xbe.

here is a good place to download roms but its illegal bla bla bla

I see the same thing 3.8.0 latest official release to support XP, others have said 3.9.0.1 or .2 worked for them on XP SP3 Pro.

Older versions are available at sourceforge.net.  You have to click on "Browse all files" to browse the listings to locate them.

edit: Wow, sourceforge did a major site upgrade. Click on the Files tab to browse the project's files.

Hello friend, I have some links that can be useful to you, are from two sites to find emulators.

this is already a link of the emulators.
Please login or register to see this link.

that's a few packages of emulators already with roms, videos and artwork.
Please login or register to see this link.

and this is from a Brazilian forum that has a lot of useful stuff. just need to register.
Please login or register to see this link.

just need to unpack the emulators, the respective packages inside the special emulator for each system and make an ftp. I recommend creating an emulators folder on drive F. getting F: Emulator / atari 2600 (for example) /default.xbe



I'd like to apologize if I'm breaking any rules.

Great info & topic... where do we place the roms once emulators are installed?

In the emu's ROM or is it ROMS subfolder.

I want downloaded the PC Engine pack from but it seems to not include the emulator its self. Just Roms, vids, and extra. The link on the emulator download page for MednafenX_PCE v5 is broken. 

 

Should I just use the RetroArch Version: 1.7.3  from http://www.emuxtras.net/dlsystem/?

      Hi,
      Is there a post or a PDF that shows all the file formats for the emulators that go on the OG Xbox?
      I found some roms for the Snes but when I try to launch them in the snes emulator it does not see them, so I just want to make sure I have the right file format first.

      i pulled my version 1.6 apart about a week ago to change the thermal paste on it. i wasn't able to get the gpu completely clean so i put some new paste on it and reassembled while i waited for my arcti-clean order to get here. the system did great during this time. today, i pulled it apart and cleaned it better this time and reapplied thermal paste. after doing that, i was testing a game(i also serviced the dvd reader) and it froze on me(i thought it was because of the dvd reader). i restarted the console and kept playing. the xbox seemed to do fine for several minutes of playing the game. so i turned my attention to getting the disk tray to function correctly. i was opening it and shutting it multiple times when the system suddenly started glitching graphically. i let it do it for just a few seconds while i wondered what the heck was going on and then i pulled the power cord. when i tried plugging it back in, the xbox started frag'ing. to make a long story short, the point i'm at now is that i can let the system stay unplugged for an hour or so and plug it back in and it will function fine for just a few minutes. after that, it will start graphically glitching or freeze. it will do this with both the dvd/hdd drives installed but also with them both completely removed(including the ide cable). it doesn't appear to be frag'ing anymore and i don't think the processors are getting too hot. none of the caps appear to be bulging. any idea what's wrong with this thing? google is not being very helpful.

      i pulled apart my 1.6, cleaned and repasted the the heat sinks, and cleaned and greased the dvd drive. i was cycling the dvd drive trying to get the tray to operate correctly when all of a sudden the system started having weird artifacting on the screen. i turned it off and un plugged it and then plugged it back in and it started frag'ing. what's going on?
