    I see videos about it but they have a lot of dislikes so something isn't right?

    Nope. There is not a single even half decent Xbox emulator. Between difficulty and an apparent lack of interest in making it happen, it has basically been accepted as something that will probably never actually reach a respectable state.

    Wow I wish there kind of was an Xbox emulator so I can play Halo 2 but either way my computer can't even handle pcsx2.

    You know Halo 2 is available on PC right, and very cheaply?

    for 0 money, you know :wink: :wink:

    actually i tried find a iso of the first hallo and every torrent was dead :'(

    most of the xbox games were ported to pc, since a xbox is the same architecture it was easy to port... maybe that created the lack of interest...

    Except emulators are slower than just running it directly on the PC. At 1080p, with lots of AA, AF, maybe even super sampling.

    Not at all, but Halo for the PC does support those options. Why have it on an emulator when your PC will run it faster? It's about the best experience.

    I'm guessing you've already tried these:
    http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/xbox/


    For Halo 2 couldn't you just buy a legitimate disc+key and play it?
    It's about $20 on Amazon for a PC copy

    The only other option is downloading and cracking it xD
    (If I had a decent PC I'd help you find a working torrent for it)

    Buying an Original Xbox is extremely affordable nowadays and you can hack it easily though a problem could be that it takes too much space, as much as the Xbox One takes (more or less).

    Still have to finish Conker Live & Reloaded someday. :)

    Why emulate the original Xbox when all we would need to run original Xbox games on PC is a wrapper to run XBE files?

    Couldn't you hack it and play it from the HDD?

    helow my friends yes there is an xbox 360 emulator working !!! as we speak on ivy bridge ..sandy bridge..haswell motherboards.... this is the link its already complied !! you unpack the GIT and run XENIA app....it opens up GAME LOADER from there you load ANY Game demo preferably.......you can unpack demos with WX pirs apps to get to default.xex to be able to run it also
    here is wx pirs *to extract any demo you download.. XBLA demos mostly work games that are size of few 100 MB 500 mb...or little bit more work > sonic unleashed works...rayman origins works.......*xbox 360 titles.....
    I downloaded demos here mostly

    http://digiex.net/downloads/downloa...-sonic-4-episode-1-arcade-trial-download.html


    this is my chanell on youtube I have 3000 subscribers so you know I'm real...and this is no joke...



    here is sonic unleashed video by samothetheif few months ago..it was NO joke !!! this is how game actually works....now with few modified files to make textures more visible....

    article >

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/3afpvi/xbox_360_emulator_xenia_now_plays_scott_pilgrim/
    xenia now plays scott pilgrim also..and many others like ridge racer 6..intro and also halo reach intro and that other version...its been big progress in September amazing progress
    today I tried out Capcom arcade cabinet it also works and loads up....
    here are the files to mod the sonic unleashed to be # almost $ playable...

    http://ns336220.ip-91-121-94.eu/dow...8XrLY/Sonic+Unleashed+Xenia+Emulator+Tutorial

    pacman museum works....also


    halo reach intro boots up


    mortal kombat ultimate also works




    snk vs Capcom also works I tried and tested it out all this games myself ....


    please make this topic awesome..lets develop together...the biggest breakthrough has been done we have graphical intergration for most hard to come by games.....we need to put more work into it it will be best emulator I am sure......im loving it so far...lets get this thing moving !!! even faster !!!and any comments are welcome and suggestions
    currently I'm trying to install Freestlye dash ... the xenia runs the XEX menu and it runs Dash Launch and I'm not sure how to run from USB any file to be visible in the emulated xex menu *to run from hard drive ..just like in dolphin you had NAND here we have xbox hard drive..and we need to be able to run from usb or hard drive..not sure how still loking into it ..only possible way to make xbox USB is if you have an Xbox 360 I did not find any tool that makes same usb format as an xbox 360 does.....

    here is a link to article kernel version is wrong it says and I was figuring a way around

    https://github.com/benvanik/xenia/issues/387
    anyway most of APPS from original XBOX 360 are playable..for now graphicly much superior then ever before.....we need to design Cool GUI interface > comapbility with controlerS...would be awesome. ..... and other tweaks to make it more user friendly....for now controls are on keyboard or if you have real xbox 360 controller it works..

    If it were that simple this topic wouldn't exist. Contrary to its hardware specs on the surface, Xbox is very much not compatible with desktop versions of Windows or its platform (I don't recall Xbox having a good non-Windows emulator either.
