Chihiro arcade games running on 128mb ram modded Xboxes.

Recommended Posts

Trusty is actually from China and postage is much less than you'd expect. Also, once you see the amount of work he does on the upgraded board, you'll be shocked at how little you paid. Seriously.

 

The only way this works out is because China's exchange rate is so low. The dollar (or the Euro or Pound) will go very far there. Otherwise it wouldn't be work.

 

As far as I know, Trusty is the only person who ever did this sort of thing. Although, I think some company did this when the Xbox was first out as some sort of promotion. I'm not sure if they were ever sold commercially though.

 

Just to bring this back to topic, for Chihiro games, it sounds like the 128 upgrade alone will do it - so you don't necessarily need the CPU upgrade. I think that the RAM upgrade alone was very inexpensive - far less expensive than I remember people charging for them in the States.

 

 

trustys from the usa might be pricey for the upgrade plus postage heard of anyone in the uk who would have the skill to do it

Carlo,

 

Have you actually tried these emulators? I didn't think they were actually available. Please elaborate.

 

You're saying they run 2fps, which doesn't make sense since the whole point is that the hardware (aside from the RAM) is identical to the Xbox. Its not like trying to emulate foreign 3D hardware in MAME.

Low FPS makes perfectly sense if we actually need 256mb or more (which isn't possible)

We need more input from 128mb users!! How's the speed?

The speed was normal during 1st level (on a trusty 1.4G /128MB ) i'll try ta make a video for all to see ASAP.

sorry further testing later as am away from home without a gun to play cross hair by analog make it hard to enjoy...

 

@carlo3do

With your Trusty board i suspect overheating issue, did you motherboad fried by cpu ?

was it from the 1st batch ?

Carlo,

 

You should definitely contact him. I'm guessing that he will help you out in any case. Overheating isn't an issue as long as you do some modifications to the case and/or use the included fan at 100%. Also, I think he recently redesigned the heatsink, so any of these issues should be a thing of the past.

 

But ya - contact him. I've had mine over a year and its going strong. I did focus on getting the cooling exceptionally good during the first few months though. Currently, my temps max out at 100-105 degrees F for the GPU and 120-125 for the CPU. That's after hours of playing too.

 

By the way, did you try swapping out the PSU? A lot of times, that's the issue.

 

Good luck
