    once you finish this tut this will be a nice compiled guide. you should add links to the apps we have so far, crediting @wiired24 of course.

    you didnt ask me for permission but whatever its fine i dont really care

    It will be nice to have everything all in one place. Thanks @tunip3

    Xbox One honestly needs it's own homebrew section

    Wouldn't it be great if there was a single application on the Xbox One that had custom skins and was extremely customizeable and from it you could load PPSSPP, VBA10, NESBOX, etc all from this one application. Each of them would have their own tile with their own graphic logo. And wouldn't it be cool if you could also load Kodi from this application as well. You could call it God Mode. (Dev Mode Pun xD)

    i mean, you could. it may look a little bad but you could just write a simpl U.I that has buttons that launch those said programs, but contained inside the first app. then modify said apps to have a button that relaunches the U.I

    It could be done certainly and who wouldn't want all of their media and emulators in one single place :) I was thinking something along the lines of Emulationstation/Retropie

    [​IMG]

    Edit: Full source code for Emulation station is on Github https://github.com/Aloshi/EmulationStation

    It might be something worth looking into after psx-box is finished

    I wonder if we will ever see a Dreamcast emu for Xbone, or a DS emulator for that matter since Drastic can run on phones.

    Hopefully one day, I think wiired24 is right now busy with ps1 and n64 emulators, after that he will most likely try something else. I was thinking that MAME should be ported to xbox one especially considering the fact that it already has controller support and a good GUI (depending on the version) and I think it is also open source. but I could be wrong because I am very new to the xbox one homebrew scene

    Right now *we're*;) just working on ps1 I believe. We may have something decently functional soon, were just waiting on someone to make a backend for us to use. Not sure what he has planned for afterwards though.

    By all means, take your time. You guys are doing a really good job. I am a programmer, but the thing is I do not understand code for emulators, I wish I could help. My main experience is with unity

    Just finished porting Chip 8 to Xbox One yesterday :)
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-sideload-chip8-emulator-on-xbox-one.470025/

    We almost have psx-box finished we're just waiting on Adam to finish the work he is doing so we can use PSXACT as a backend.
    Once we're done with psx-box I'd like for us to tackle Dreamcast.

    I really want to play Shenmue 1 and 2. I know there are rumors for the hd remasters. But I do not trust sega to release them in time before Shenmue 3
