    Hi I have a jtagged 360 with the official Microsoft internal HDD. As weird as it may seem I tend to enjoy the OG xbox games quite a lot on my hacked 360. Games like grabbed by the ghoulies and crimson skies however Toejam and Earl 3 doesnt work which is understandable as it was never made compatible according to the official list. However, I think some maybe able to use the hex value trick for these sort of games anyone been able to play Toejam and Earl 3 yet?

    You can install a hacked emulator by following this tut.
    It will increase some compatibility but some games simply refuse to boot.

    I've tried what you're talking about what the exact same game, ToeJam & Earl 3. Take a working XBE and change the hex values. Didn't work for me.

    Thing is from what I know its sort of like the needle in a haystack approach. Only one specifc hex value could make it work. Anyways it seems impossible for now.

    I tried like 5 different ones. Maybe you're right that I didn't try the correct one. But I give up until I'm told "this one works".

    Then it's likely impossible to boot.
    I highly doubt MS is ever going to do something about it.

    I have an original Xbox still because of two games ToeJam & Earl 3 and Tao Feng. Wish I could get those two games to work so I could discard it but don't think that will ever happen. Even if I could just get ToeJam working I'd probably get rid of it. Oh well.
