How To Make Backups Of XBOX Games|
How to play XBOX Live games online for FREE
XBOX PS2 and Nintendo Downloads
To install other software, like XBMC
1) Open your favorite FTP client (for this tutorial i
will be using
2) Turn on your modded xbox and look for the ip address
found in the settings or the upper right hand corner
depending on your skin.
3) In SmartFTP under address put your xbox's ip address
(192.168.0.3/ in my case), "xbox" for the login, and
"xbox" again for the password
4) You should then see six to eight folders: C, D, E, F
(?), G(?), X, Y, Z. Evolution-X will automatically
detect any new folders on the E drive, in folders Games
and Apps. Create 'Games', 'Emulators', and 'Apps' if
they aren't already on the E drive (E folder).
5) Go to Xbins' FTP to download applications, unzip
them, and upload the extracted files to a folder on
E:\Apps , or if you downloaded a Game, upload the files
to a folder on E:\Games and so on...
Example: Say you downloaded XBMC, unzipped it, and
opened the folder they were unzipped to. Create a folder
on E:\Apps called XBMC. Then transfer all the files in
the folder you unzipped your XBMC files to on your
computer to E:\Apps\XBMC. To make sure you did it right,
there should be a file with the extention .xbe in the
root directory (meaning under E:\Apps\XBMC, there should
be a file ending in .xbe)
Some of my favorite programs:
XboxMediaCenter - is a free open source (GPL) multimedia
player that can be used to play and view most
video/audio/picture formats. It also has a built in dvd
player so you don't need that $30 dvd dongle.
DVD2Xbox - My personal favorite when it comes to ripping
games onto your xbox's hard drive. Very easy to use.
Linux - There are tons of options to look at here, play
around with it see what you like.
If you have any apps you would like me to add let me
Gameboy Color/Gameboy Advance - XboyAdvance
Great GBA emulator that also emulates GBC games. Plays
games fullscreen, and has good speed, outside the
graphically intensive games like Tony Hawk, and Ecks vs.
Sever. GBC games are flawless. Quite recommended.
Genesis/Sega CD - either Xenesis or NeoGenesis
Both of these are excellent. NeoGenesis uses Xport's
rediculously configurable menu, and has great
compatibility. Xenesis also runs most Genesis and Sega
CD games wonderfully, and some people view Carcharius'
menu as being easier to use than Xports.
Nintendo Entertainment System - FCE Ultra
Using a lovely Super Mario Bros 2 theme for the menu,
this is one of the best NES emulators out there, for
either PC or console. It has much better compatibility
than Nester, and supports MANY features like savestates,
and screenshots. Other than a lack of lightgun support,
this is as close as you're going to get without getting
the original console.
Nintendo 64 - Surreal 64
Surreal 64 combines UltraHLE, Project 64 and 1964 into
one emulator. It is currently the best solution to
Nintendo 64 emulation on the xbox.
Playstation - PCSXbox
The only Playstation emulator available on Xbox.
Super Nintendo - xSNES9x
One of the original emus on the system, and still one of
the best. With a high level of compatibility, gorgeous
GUI, and pending update, Its the SNES emu of choice.
Just don't play it on a progressive scan TV...
Heres a list of the best emulators for the xbox. Try
some of them out. Theres nothing like playing SNES games
on your xbox.
