First things first, this is a comprehensive guide to suckessfull Xbox emulation. Please read it all as it contains lots of terminology which you will need to know.


Section One: How To
OK, you will need to download an emulator. I assume you have one already? good. To use it, you CAN NOT put your Xbox disc into your computer and play like that. Microsoft don't want Xbox emulators because they lose money selling Xboxes, so they have taken steps in emulation prevention. So you need the files on your computer. The emulator will find default.xbe in whatever directory the game is in. Unfortunately, emulators don't understand the files by themselves... You need an ISO file of the game. Read On


Section Two: Getting The Games
Most Xbox games can't be read by your computer. It doesnt matter if you have a DVD-ROM or DVD-RW or what, it more then likely wont work. Why? Because computers like .exe files while Xboxes want .xbe files. They work in the same way. default.xbe is what causes an Xbox game/CD to boot and is the main set of instructions for the game/CD. default.xbe basically tells the Xbox what to do, when to do it and what other files on the disc to use. Unfortunately, Xbox emulators dont read these files and neither do computers. So you need an ISO file.

On this site i can't provide details about obtaining ISOs, but i will tell you that you can create them via a program called CraXtion. (www.xboxscene.com) Now that you have your ISO, its time to play!



Section Three: Playing The Game
Ok, this is the tricky part. Go back to the homepage and check the xbox section for progress of each emulator. You didn't read wrong, most of the emulators dont work. Some will boot parts of games, some will make them play at low framerates. Unless you bought your computer yesterday you have no chance of playing at 3-5fps even. So basically, you have just spent the last couple of minutes reading WHY the emulator won't work. If you haven't realised by now, I was just telling you the technical details to let you know....





























THERE ARE NO WORKING XBOX EMULATORS FOR THE ABOVE REASONS

NO xbox games, repeat NO XBOX GAMES, will work on a standard dvd drive on a pc,not only wont they work, they will not read or cannot be disc copied with only standard dvd drive. its NOTHING at all to do with .exe files.
an xbox games is stamped, and also recorded backwards, the iso itself, will not read on a pc
to see the xbox game files you MUST connect a pc to an xbox, use a alternative dash such as evolution x, and drag the files to pc.

Sorry to dissapoint you, but no, a normal DVD drive WILL NOT read an Xbox DVD.

READ this:

Just thought I'd add it.

As in A) An XBox DVD isn't readable like the others, it's recorded backwards, and therefore READ backwords, and B ) XBox games are ISO'd by networking an XBox and a PC, and then ISOing the DVD's using the XBox's networked drive.

Yup, you can only copy Xbox games is connecting the console to a PC, then transfer the discs data through Evolution X dashboard replacement to the PC.

And you can't read Xbox *original* games through a PC DVD drive, the format it's just incompatible, like DC or GC.

there are no xbox emulators that can run more than 1 or 2 games.
so far i hear only halo and turok can run on xbox emulators.

donkeyknob
June 5th, 2005, 11:04
the .iso files would have to be decompressed/extracted so you obtain all the games files and the emulator will "boot" the default.xbe file

dont you need a bios too?
Also you can use winRAR (http://www.rarlab.com/) to exract iso's.
Im not to sure if any other programs can extract iso's but
winRAR always works for me.

donkeyknob
June 7th, 2005, 11:11
does winRAR work with the xbox isos? (otherwise known as .xiso files?)

yeah, some form of BIOS would probably be required, depending on the emu i suppose. its probably not unlikely that there will be a bios free emu seein as they can make windows run on the xbox.....

i think i read someware that xbox dvds are diffrent from pc dvds :dry: , because they have a larger data area than a pc disk which has some code that the xbox uses to decrypt the disk, or something like that. the pc can read the disk because it only looks like a standard dvd but isnt physically. this is just a guess, it may just be a standard dvd with the file table written in a non-standard location. someone should really look into this, it is at least partly standard. bypass any protection and pow youve got onee emulation problem solved. :happy:

donkeyknob
June 21st, 2005, 11:05
um... no. they are written in a slighty different format to data DVD and movie DVD, a sort of mix between the two which the xbox console (using FATX instead of FAT32) reads

Some of them works now?

There is a friend of mine that was pretty sure in 2005 that he's pc was emulating xbox dunno wich emulator did he use but he's pc broke.

Well dunno hope now xbox emulation is reality.

Keep up the good job ;)

They are dumped from a modded xbox.

Ojive
March 21st, 2007, 23:45
I dont get it.

I DO get it, that XDVD files are being dumped through some mod software on the console. But are they being dumped to a PC? I got this ISO right here, and i got no clue what to do with it.

A) WinRar cannot open the archive (as written before in this thread)
B) Cannot be read by windows (Daemon tools). Now here is the tricky question. If xbox dvd files are being transfered to a PC, and then made an ISO of ON A PC, shouldt the result be a windows readable DVD iso?

I think im lost when it comes to using Cxbx or Xeon. Since they run on Windows platform, request .xbe files. But im assuming that default.xbe is inside that ISO? Well, thats nice, since it cannot be read or opened or whatever.

Can someone sort me out here?
Thanks.

Hi

I'm one of the biggest newbies you will meet in emulating, though ive had a brainwave and i want to know if its possible to do this:

Why doesnt someone create or even modify a PC DVD drive so it can read Xbox files and convert them into a format that the computer will read? I'm sure it cant be THAT hard to create a DVD Drive like that. We then wont need emulating software, we can just let the hardware do it. If theres a flaw in the idea, let me know.:D

You are wrong sir, I have recently found a program called Blindwrite, It reads the Xbox cd as an Iso file, and it allows you to Copy the iso to your computer , and burn it to a new disk.:ninja:

Xbox DVDs are formatted differently than a standard DVD. The PC doesn't care about the whole .xbe /.exe thing. An Xbox DVD is read backwards (outside to inside) to prevent a standard PC drive from reading it.

1. Check the date of a thread/post before replying. If the post is old, check to see if the member you are replying to is still active.
2. Use google for any emulators you want to get.
3. Don't beg. Using "plzzzzzzzz" is a huge no no!
