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 cr@p. 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?

      Got this xbox with a couple of 360s and it puts the logo up and the Microsoft logo also pops up then nothing.
      Put Halo2 disc in and it booted up and showed the previous players save games so i assume the HDD is working at least. Now i thought it had been modded as when i looked underneath it had warranty stickers over the labels you have to cut to open the machine. Also the modder/repairer and also put hot glue in the torx screws (twat).
      Alas no hardware mod and i know next to nothing about softmods (my modding was always HW mods).
      Also i got this nice message when i took the lid off.
      Some suggestions would be appreciated as at the moment I'm thinking something may have happened to a softmod.

      My LE Green Xbox which is very little used and has been kept in practically retail state (never opened) completely out of the blue decided to start itself the moment I turn on the main's power. Its been connected to the same power block as my most used Xboxes for years so when either are on it will have been getting some power to the clock cap but TBH I can't remember when it was last actually used; it has to be at least a month ago. Then this.
      It won't turn off using the Xbox power button but will turn off using the UnleashX menu option > Shutdown but then immediately powers up again. Its working perfectly otherwise. Clearly something has happened, probably partly due to the hot weather but what?
      My theory is that I made a big mistake keeping it plugged in so that when the other Xboxes were being used its clock cap was indeed being charged. Despite it not being used regularly that has led to its premature ageing and leaking, doing some sort of damage.
      I suspect I'll only know if that is correct by cracking open the case which I specifically did not and still do not want to do. So if the cause could be something else which doesn't required me to take its virginity advice would be appreciated.
