Mediocre at best.
It's doable tho.
The controller setup on the thing is confusing at first. I had a hard time getting it setup correctly for GBA
IMO, it is worth just getting an original XBOX for emulation. They are cheap and easy to mod.
It was great, but there are some better options now. I'd even go with a Wii over it, for proper 240p support (if you're on an actual Wii, not Wii U's Wii mode).
I agree with the wii and 240p mode, but which emus support that?
If your PC can handle it then emulators on it would be the best option
I have an old xbox as well as a Wii, and the xbox can actually play a few N64 games quite well! Goldeneye and Super Mario 64 are the main two I play, and they run fine. (The sky is black in Goldeneye, which is a common problem for emulators, and the explosions are greyscale, but they don't lag like they did on the actual hardware)
I got PS2 ISOs working on my non-BC PS3, but I had to convert the ISO into a "PS2 Classic" first, like you would download from the PSN Store. Then they ran just fine.
That's wierd, I installed a PS2 classics place holder and use MultiMan to boot my PS2 games in iso format from internal hdd, no converting needed.
As for the xbox 360, I have two of them and found them useless. Perhaps if there was a softmod that wasn't blocked in 2009 then there would have been more homebrew devs in the scene.
Yeah, I was using an outdated method, but it worked for me, and I already knew the process. It was good for me to learn, and I love doing nitty-gritty work on my PC, it makes me feel good when I actually accomplish something.
I thought my method was outdated, I tried it two years ago and kind of forgot about it. Do you know how to play psp iso's on a ps3?
I can confirm 100% that emulators really don't suck on the 360.
I use RetroArch 0.9.8 and will share with you the settings I use:
double shaders enabled: yes
Hardware filter 1: point filteringhardware filter 2: linear interpolationscale factor: x2shader 1: HQ2shader 2: scanlinegamma correction: on
Wth those settings enabled it produces an excellent effect. The emulator runs very smoothly and i have not noticed any issues with framerates or gameplay..
If i did notice any problems i would 100% not use the emulator as im a complete perfectionist :-D
The only issues i have is the user interface is not entirely user friendly and you have to manually change cores every time you want to run a game on a different platform. Once you get used to it though and know what everything does its a breeze and its pretty simple
I just wish it would get updated so the interface is better WITHOUT REMOVING SHADERS!! their latest update completely took away the option to use shaders which is completely laughable to be honest..
More people need to start developing for the 360 homebrew scene as its got serious potential if the programmers weren't lazy
Does Retroarch support scanlines?
So I just rgh'd a slim, hadden't played with a homebrew 360 since my first jtag RROD like 5 years ago. Back then homebrew was basically non-existent, but now xbins was full of emulators so I figured I'd give some a try. Downloaded and installed a few emulators, manually placed my roms in and... nothing worked. I searched around and found some pre-packed emulators distributed through various sites and torrents. Loaded those up into the xbox and again, nothing worked. XeBoy 360, a GBA emulator pack I found was the only out of NES, SNES, Genesis and GBA emus to show roms, but it displayed them in thier 8 character filenames, so like The Legend Of Zelda - The Minish Cap.gba shows as THELEGE~1.GBA. Fucking who the shit uses 8 character filenames post y2k? After some fiddling with .xml files the Genesis emulator started working, but there's some lame filter applied to the graphics making it look retarded and you can't turn it off. Fiddled with the .xml for the SNES emu, but still can't get that working, I think the file browser doesn't support opening directories..... NES emulator just freezes on launch, there's no option but A to select but there's nothing to select, and no .xml or .ini file to fiddle with. PSX emulator was lagging to shit trying to play Intelligent Qube, like seriously 15 frames per second, the original Xbox had a PSX emu that ran just fine, wtf. The one saving grace was the N64 emulator, which did work well (not xbins version but some mod from some spanish forum), but you have to boot Xell to launch it and that seems dumb af. Also Xell doesn't let you have analog or optical audio alongside an HDMI video connection, so I had no sound.. I think I'm just gonna load up the internall HDD with the original Xbox emulators I used to love.
