Xbox is a true legend of a console!!
One of my favourite consoles still to game on. Xbox and the Dreamcast are two machines that really feel like arcade quality gaming!

+hacatan24 yes I totally agree and the concept of the memory unit in the controller too!
hacatan24 - 4 days ago
In my opinion I think that the Dreamcast is the Xbox.... I remember some CEO or the president of Sega move to Microsoft to make the new Xbox...... That's why some Dreamcast games went to the Xbox...... Even the controller almost looks like a Dreamcast....

+Chronik Spartan Gaming Sega was low on money and Sony knew it so they announced ps2 more than a year early to kill at the time hot dreamcast sales they knew xbox and GameCube would have way better specs than ps2 so they made exclusive deals on all the best 3rd party games to keep them off those later consoles ps1 is the only PlayStation that succeeded solely on the merits of the console.

I still have my OG mechassault disc just in case I ever wanna do this again. Spent so much time just scrolling through everything I had. It was a weird feeling not knowing what to play because there were too many options.

I see no emulators in the menu whatsoever after adding roms to the corresponding folders and auto scan systems. Why do you think is that?

Can it emulate ps2
djb1ge - 4 days ago
lol I’m sorry, but NO. This is FAR from the best emulation machine, IMO. I don’t care if if plays original XBox games. Having to hunt down an older USB flash drive that’s compatible with the system, having to get/buy one of the games to use the save file exploits, HAVING TO TAKE IT APART AND DE-SOLDER CAPACITORS?! Nah...
If you’re gonna jump through so many hurdles, just get yourself a PSP, a Raspberry Pi, a Wii or better yet, a PC for emulation.

What is the 32X emulation like,does it run smoothly with no glitches or game compatibility problems? Does it have a Saturn emulator and is it a good emulator? It seems lile it's impossible to make a good Saturn emulator.

Bryan Stradley - 4 days ago
Just google it Sorry about that! I forgot to add the magic word: “Dreamcast”! And “MAMED” is the MAME emulator but programmed to a Dreamcast. The emulation is beautiful, very few tiny glitches, if any on all arcade games, consoles 16-bit and under, plus is very friendly to backup discs! Look for .cdi files or magical .iso’s that are 1:1 backups and have already been tweaked perfectly and are *self-booting* “plunk & play”. do not need a boot-disc (if you ever do, Utopia works for most). Happy Gaming!

Bryan Stradley
Bryan Stradley - 5 days ago
That bad? Zoiks! I’m biased as a SEGA fan from the Master System on up, but for emulation (if you’re willing to occasionally change a disc), Dreamcast is rock-solid with MAMED, SNES, Genesis, Master System and NES! It tops out (thus far) with all 90’s Capcom, Street Fighter 2 (all 143 versions), X-Men, X-Men Vs SF, Marvel Vs Capcom 1 & 2.

Got go get me one of those badboys. Although just saying that the WiiU was easy to turn into an emulation system too...just nowhere near as cheap or vintage as an OG Xbox.

I should have never gotten rid of my xbox1. It had "coinOps" an arcade/mame emulator with hundreds of games and everything just worked. I have spent the last ten years trying to get something that is as trouble free and just works and every time ive tried various raspberry pi images, xbox360 modded, psp pmoded, or pc mame, or other stuff, all of it has key mapping problems or games dont work or other problems and nothing matches the simplicity of everything just working that I had with that CoinOps install on xbox 1.

Bryan Stradley
Bryan Stradley - 6 days ago
Fork Monster Heck Yes! Especially when .CDI /Burn /play releases were out there. I’ve trouble finding them now). Dreamcast is amazing! (Sadly, US didn’t see all features In the US) But has Optical drive, VGA box for true 480p, built-in modem (swappable to broadband), keyboard, mouse support, full web-browser, with 2 open controller slots), a webcam, mini-thermal printer, microphone, *Free VOIP*, free Video chat, upgradeable (if small) Storage - (the one weakness is no internal storage and VMU’s hold little)- nearly every function of a PC. I want to check (if anyone knows, please help me! I’ll owe you a solid) if anyone has made a word-processor for DC. Thanks everybody! Dreamcaster till I die! 👍

If you try this method and it doesn't work, you just get a black screen try this. Look at your video settings on the xbox dash, change the screen to normal and turn all the HD settings off. I kept getting a black screen and once I changed the video settings, BINGO! It worked!

HUYI1 - 12 days ago
i still have my original soft mod xbox but i don't use it much these days, shield tv takes care of most stuff, not sure if it's still working but i've stored it away, it was a brilliant emu system back in the day but i'm surprised that the homebrew scene is still about.
never heard of the clock issue and not sure what version my xbox is i haven't had any problems with the console though.
i could never get a hold of the usb drive wire (i used the alternative method) but the last time i looked they were £10-£15, not that cheap for a usb cable, i've also noticed there is xbox hdmi cables for £40! which isn't cheap either, is it really viable to go back and soft mod a xbox when their are other alternatives that would be cheaper in the long run? this is good if you have all this stuff laying about i guess.
Foxontherun2 - 14 days ago
this bricked my xbox
i selected the option to reboot inside of that emustation program and it bricked the console. the console worked fine and had tons of xbox games on it that i already played and this was the only time I've ever soft rebooted outside of unleash dashboard and the program bricked the motherboards firmware somehow.
the console now just flashes red/green with no video output at all. no error code , nothing....its bricked , thx

All xboxs can do this all you need is the appropriate game and a way to get the saves onto the system. Even though he used Mech assault, I recommend using the game Splinter cell (the original not any of the sequels) because It always works.

I've been pretty excited to give this a go on my original xbox considering how much you talked up XBMC-emustation. Ive watched this video several times but unfortunately none of my PSX roms are loading, i keep getting script errors trying to update the n64 roms and games for the NES and master system are running 10x faster than they should be. 2/10

Nice machine, I'm more than sure you know this but if you haven't at least had a look inside, there has been reports of 1.6 clock caps bulging of late, also on mine and many others the 5 3300uF 6.3V caps on the low right of the board usually bulged and leak, I had to replace mine. plus while in there some new thermal paste and a clean cant hurt. Id hate to see this rig die too soon. Awesome video as always, I have a 1.6 here chipped and another unopened one that's in better condition ill no doubt soft mod like you have here... cheers mate

I actually still have a Xbox it was passed to me but sadly my dog chewed up the wires while we had it in the garage(for storage to bring out later when my sister and her friend are on the 360)and we didn't want to risk burning down our house I think my dog also chewed the controllers.
I also hated the menu noises I left it on one night and it made noises while I was asleep scariest experience to me.
