    I own an xk3y but when I went to download a game I came across this. I'm not sure if the game will work on my Xbox 360 or not.... So basically a noob question lol

    NTSC-U games will work, PAL ones don't.
    Many games are region free by default tho.

    What you could do is download it, stealth patch it and load it.
    See if it boots.
    If it doesn't then it's locked to PAL and doesn't work on an NTSC console.

    The game I wanted to download shows both regions yet when I go to their post it only has one set of downloads. I'm just not sure if it just means it will work with both regions or it is locked to one.

    It just says PAL/NTSC like this: "Region: PAL/NTSC"

    Only sure way to find out is to run it through ABGX.

    Like I said, most games are region free, chances of this one being region free is great as well.

    Jdownloader allows you to just paste them in and it'll download them automatically once one is done ;p

    The game ended up working but I have enough question but not sure if you would have an answer. I have an xk3y and trying to play Original Xbox games but all don't load and just give me the error message. Any idea how to get around that or program to check what is wrong?

    I've actually never dabbled with them.
    But, I seen somewhere that you'd need to convert them with Xdvdmulleter before you'll be able to load them from the Xkey.
    Basically, they need to be 1:1 copies of the games.

    They definitely do work (the ones supported by the Xbox emulator that is)

    Ok I'll check that out and post again if anything changes. I posted on another person's thread about their xk3y so hopefully they answer.

    Ok hit a little bit of a wall.... Xdvdmulleter has 5 options for an iso and not sure what to pick. DVD9 ISO, DVD5, Standard ISO, Standard Xbox 1 ISO, and Cloned DVD9 ISO. I'm going with the standard Xbox 1 ISO first but if you know if another one is better let me know :D

    Personally, I'd say get an old Xbox.
    They function great as emulation machines as well ;p
