Any devs interested in a free 1.2/1.3 xbox with 128mb?

Recommended Posts

It's possible, but the box that needs the dvd drive will also need a mod chip. AFAIK, if it's the drive replacement is a standard pc dvd drive, it will only recognize burned games and not the original.

 

Did some googling, you can find out more about it here: http://www.xboxscene.com/articles/dvddrive.php

That's a pc-dvd -> xbox swap. I'm talking cannibalizing another xbox.

Screw it, i'm going to give it a try. lol

 

*edit*

Works fine. Didn't realize it was a philips -> philips swap.

You don't need to have a specific DVD drive on the xbox as long as its from an xbox. They're not married to the motherboard like on the 360. It won't make a difference if the system is chipped or not either.

If the drive is from another box, then no it won't matter. However, if 'pc-dvd->xbox' swap as iq_132 best illustrated, then yes a mod chip is required. Philips tend to be the norm, Samsung is quite the rarity these days. I will have to find one when I can, I want to do some experimenting with that.

So I decided to work on CPS-3 for a bit yesterday. I've got SFIII2 up and booting, however, it runs at 1FPS for some reason. I'm going to have to investigate further.

Only 59 more to go. ;)

 

Great that you got it booting. Is that on a stock 64Mb Xbox?

No, on the 128mb one. I'm planning on getting it going on the stock machine at a later date. I'm curious how it goes without the vmm.
