My first MAME arcade cabinet project using an xbox


Recommended Posts

if your putting in a 40gig hdd then this is what you need for arcade emulation.

 

coinops reignite r3 for all your mame needs.

final burn 1.1-this emulates all those sega games which arent emulated in coinops like powerdrift,galaxy force,turbo outrun..

Ki XXX1.0-the only emulator for xbox which emulates killer instinct 1and2 arcade.

cpx3-this emualtes streetfighter 3 third strike,streetfighter3 second impact,joos bizarre adventure...

 

once you have those on your xbox then you are still going to have lots of space,i would recommend you looking into console emulation nes,snes,genesis,gba......

 

when you get your xbox modded let me know via pm i can help you out with this stuff.

 

edit/one more thing when you softmod your xbox and you want to install a main dashboard go with one which has a file explorer,either unleashx or xbox media centre i would recommend.

 

If I may be so bold, I'd also add FBA-XXXPro...1.26 if you want HD....so many options.....just perfect...playing Final Fight better than it looked in the arcade?....priceless!

yes you can softmod without an action replay its called hotswapping.

there should be some videos on youtube to take you through the process of hotswapping.if you dont wont to do this either then you should go down the modchip route if you or soemone you know are comfortable with a soldering iron that is.

or maybe someone in your area offers a modding service.

Okay i got it!! I used another modded xbox and loaded the softmod to the xbox mem stick and did the transfer.

So Now I have my new modded box with nothing in it. So How can I start loading the arcade games (coinOps) ect ect. Do I just FTP the box and load the apps strait to it?

yes you just do it by ftp or you can use the dvd drive to burn files onto your xbox with your dashboard file explorer.

I think iI need a newer dashboard. The one I happened to load looks kinda old. It is (Microsoft Evolution X) V+3935

What is a good one to use to make it look like (Arcade Style)Also i dont see " File Explorer" on the xbox menu.

well personally i go with xbox media centre with the rapier skin,i wouldnt call it arcade looking but it looks nice and i set up xbmc to boot straight to the emulators on boot up.

you can use evox to ftp files to your xbox hdd.also there is different skins you can get for evox
