Where do I exactly upload roms and emulators ?


Recommended Posts

Sorry for opening another topic so soon, with the other one un-replied, I just needed to know how to properly manage the upload of roms and emulators on a hard-modded Xbox with Slayers 2.7 as default dashboard.

Basically, I got a lot of roms and some good new emulators (alongside the ones which were already installed with the dashboard). Where do I put each roms (they're a lot of stuff)? Do I need to make folders like "Nintendo 64", "Nes", etc.. asking you this because there's a "Roms" folder in "F:" drive but many of the files can have the same name (as they're usually in .zip format). Do I have to place the roms in specific folder of the emulator  or there's a specific setting to follow ? Should emulators be uploaded in "Emulators" or "Games" folders ?  thanks

Where they go depends on how you configuration the dashboard. 


Do you want to have a separate menu item to access the various Emulators or is having them listed in the Games menu work for you?


Most of the Emulators has a Settings menu where you can change the folder they look to find the ROMS for it.  By default, most look in the D:\ROMS folder which is the ROMS subfolder where its default.xbe file is located.

D:\ in this case does not mean the DVD drive.

k, I'll try to upload them first, then I'll see what they ask for

about location and menu item, the dashboards (slayers,xbxmc, etc...) show a separate section... but the way how my drive is set has Games, Emulators and Roms as separated folder in F: drive... well, I'll see how each emulator works first, then I'll upload the roms.

      Hi guys,
      My problem is that i can connect to ftp via filezilla and i can also download games from my hard drive but if i want to upload games it always says connection to  server lost... and then retries. What i have is a Alladin XT plus  and evolution x. Maybe someone knows the problem.

      Hey all,
      This might be a foolish thought, but would it be possible to create an av cable that does both component out and vga out at the same time? I ask because if it were possible, it would be a very cheap an effective way to capture gameplay from an original xbox while playing. I was looking at this diagram for av pinouts and saw how similar they already were:

      I guess the only potential issue is that pins 9 and 10 are shorted for when its VGA and are not shorted when its component? Would be curious to hear from people more knowledgeable than myself.
