Miscellaneus Questions About XBox

Recommended Posts

Posting various questions about XBox here, because I had a really hard time browsing for the answers as the search results gave different answers not matching the matters :

1) Is it ok if I play it for more than 2 hours a day or is there any risk any damage ? I know the temp must be kept between certain values, but I wonder what's your daily usage and the condition of your xboxes  just to know if I'm abusing of it or not.

2) can an XBOX360 run classic isos ? Should they be used in ISO-packed formats or can the same Hard Disk be used to load them with a (modded, maybe) Xbox360 ?

3) is there an emulator for PC (Windows) which can run XBox ISO's ? I've tried several ones but some of them have a really limited compatibility list, some others are just not fitted for my system (probably I'll update my hardware soon, so maybe a better PC is needed)

4) is there an emulator for XBox which can run PS1 games just like ePSXe does ? I mean... hardware graphic emulation (Pete's plugins and similar ones), save state ability, cheats, etc... just like ePSXe (great ePSXe player in here XD )

You can play as long as you like, I have left a Xbox running for days without any problems

The Xbox 360 can play a limited number of OG Xbox game discs.

In my view if you want to play a OG Xbox game use a OG Xbox.

I tried one years ago it was [email protected] If you want to play Xbox game use a Xbox.

There is a PS1 emulator for the Xbox, if you want 100% compatibility use a PS1

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

Equipped with an xk3y, yes, many of them (Redump ISO on external HD).Otherwise, you'll need the original game discs (and you can't even install them on the 360's hard disk to reduce laser wear, AFAIK).

#4 PS1 emulation in my experience is slow with a direct ISO rip. .cue or .bin is best for compatibility and speed. I have used PSX Reloaded but Retroarch has come along and I need to test that more.  Also a heavily modified 1.4ghz Xbox runs the games much smoother. Brave Fencer Musashi is unplayable without one.

2 hours is nothing, I left mine running 24/7 for nearly a month when they shut down Xbox Live V1 to continue playing Halo 2 online as long as I could. still works to this day.

Woah, didn't know the servers were still up a month after Live 1.0's execution date!  How many people were actually on during that post-mortem period? Could you still find matches a month out?

      Hello,
      I know PAL games can display 480p if a PAL Xbox is softmodded NTSC.
      But do those « forced » 480p PAL games are as good as native 480p NTSC games ?
      I explain my point : on a region free PAL Gamecube, you can force 480p on PAL games with Swiss. But some games aren’t as good as their NTSC equivalent in 480p, because they are optimized for 480i/576i mode, not for 480i/480p mode, and so they can have some issues with their pictures.
      So, my question is : do PAL Xbox games have this kind of optimization for PAL region, as Gamecube games, or are they strictly identical to NTSC ones ?
      Thanks for your answers.

      Hi all! I'm having some trouble with installing an OpenXenium purchased from MakeMHZ into an Xbox 1.0. I'm relatively new to this, and have surely made some mistakes. When I start it up, it does this: https://imgur.com/a/HTHYrU2
      Here's what I know: 
      Stupidly, I soldered the D0 pad on the modchip to the 1.6 pad - that has been fixed. I don't think this is the issue, because I have a second chip that I did not make this mistake with, and it still does not work.  I didn't scrape the solder mask off LPC ports, and really had trouble flowing the joints. The one I'm most concerned with is the bottom right joint of the first photo. Can I run a jump wire from that to one of the nearby test pads?  I'm fairly confident the D0 pad on the modchip is correctly connected to D0 on the board - I tested the continuity from the chip to the both points on the board, and was good.  I have photos available here: https://imgur.com/a/FX7R43B 
      Thanks for any info in advance!!

      Im looking for some ideas to try before I look for a replacement xbox. Im not sure if i can do anything else at this point.
      My xbox was soft modded for some time, but I wanted to do a tsop to unlock the drive and then put in a 2.5 inch 500 gb sata drive. I did the tsop (i have a v1.5) soldered the 2 point and flashed the tsop with hexen 2021 disc. Put in my sata driver with adpater and 80 pin cable and everything was great. I started uploaded the library that i have. I also removed the supercap.
      I was down to my really scrached discs and was trying to see i could get good copies from them, but gave up. I picked up some new titles and went to install them and the xbox wouldnt boot. I get the evo/xbox splash screen to a blank screen with the orange led. Tried booting hexen or soft mod or game disc and nothing.
      I tried cleaning out the dvd drive, that didnt help. The last thing i did with the drive was watch it with the cover off. It doesnt appear to be trying to focus nor does it appear to be emitting a laser. It does move the laser head unit on the rails. But i dont think this should stop a boot to harddrive?
      I went back to the ide drive and the 40 pin cable and no change. I tried combinations of hooking up pc cdrom to the ide and dvd on the power. Thought maybe the dvd drive was corrupting the ide bus.
      Ive checked my caps and board multiple times. The only thing i was suspicious of was a pin point spot on the nvidia chip, i hope it didnt melt itself inside.
      So thats where im at, i think my dvd is toast and maybe the ide on the motherboard is broken.
