just posted this on xbox scene, thought it really deserves to be posted here. The single best way to enjoy an xbox :P

 

ok heres my 2 xbox cabs that i have converted from a xmen capcom cabinet and a golden tee

cabinet. They are both running on XBMC with a modified Slate skin. i have taken out all bits like pictures/movies and changed bits for a easy front end.

 

 

i used a xbox to jamma converter which i purchased off ebay.

thats freakin sweet. I really like the second one. what front end are you using on that one? I would love to turn my old xbox into a dedicated SFIII, MvC2, CvS2 & cps2/neogeo arcade cab.... maybe someday.

its just XBMC with a modified Slate skin. i basically just edited the XML files for the skin and moved stuff about changed the font, got rid off some stuff till i liked it.

 

all of the emulators/games on there have custom/modified wide icons that XBMC does so well.

 

i am currently building another one identical to the second one - which may find itself on ebay soon. :D with no roms i must add

Wouldn't it be illegal, if you would sell a modded Xbox with roms and emus on it?

But looks really great dude!

That is one beautiful arcade cabinet! You can probably sell it for over $1,000 on eBay. How much did it cost to make with all the parts and tools?

well i did a break down but i cant find it but it cost me about £350 so $700 ish to build, but i couldnt even quantify the amount of man hours tha have gone into this - design and build of the cab - the front end and getting everything on the box working spot on. i had to reconfigure everything for the emus and games etc etc etc.

 

but id do it over and over as its a great hobby and the end result is great to use everyday :D
