    Title pretty much sums up what I want to know, if I jtag or rgh my xbox will i be able to set it up for original xbox games that were previously incompatible? The fewer systems I can have the better, plus there's a few original games I want to check out.

    You can get a modified version of the xbox emulator, one without the checks. However as the original emulator was very game specific you are not going to gain that much, certainly not enough to ignore the original xbox. It is worth doing as you then gain the option to have hacked versions of those original games and a bit more besides, however it was not MS choosing not to flip a switch that kept it that way.

    Everything that's supported by the unhacked emulator is supported by the hacked one.
    I discovered that Hello Kitty Roller Rescue is fully compatible on the emulator, no slow down no nothing.
    It just doesn't boot on the stock one.

    It's best to just experiment a bit.
    If you're looking for specific games or are picky about it, then the best solution if to get an old Xbox.

    I figured it'd be something like that, thanks for the replies! I'll probably end up RGH'ing my 360 and testing the compatibility with certain games.

    Good luck with it!
    I'd suggest ripping the games to your harddrive via FSD or extracting the ISO images with qwix.

    I've played numerous games that weren't on the official list, some can have minor glitches that are insignificant, others either won't load to a playable point without freezing or just take a while. Sometimes the game will run really slow and clunky, basically to a point that they're unplayable but it's rare to see that on a game that doesn't crash before you can play. Running off hard disk and saving frequently is usually sufficient for most games. There can be random crashes that defy predictability so it's best to be a little over zealous with saving if you can.

    If there is a specific game you're thinking of I probably have it and don't mind trying it for you.
