Allahuakbar (God is Great!)

Salam (Peace be upon you!)
Kill all the infidels!

Could we maybe please keep religion (all brands of it) out of these gaming forums? That'd be grrreat.

Anyways.

Thank you, Mathieulh, for the updates. Gonna give it a try now that you appear to have slowed down :p

Hello again, i wanted to ask another question
I am a huge lover of game ssx3 and it does run with any backwards compatibility files, but runs only in 4:3 window, in other words, unstretched (characters are squished.) I currently made a workaround on this by manually stretching video output in OBS but i thought maybe there is a way to patch the emulator files to do the job? I tried changing title id of ssx3 xbe to halo2 and it is properly stretching but saving does not work.
Looking forward for any response :)

Hi Mathieulh,

Is there any possibility you can re-upload the link for the latest build? Unfortunately, the link you provided previously is no longer working.

Kind Regards,

Biz

Hello all.

I'm using this compatibility files but have a problem. Maybe the problem is my console, since it happens with all compatibility files, but hope you can help me.

When I load an OG Xbox game it plays well for about two to five minutes then it stops and the only thing I can do is to power off my console. Sometimes after this the console takes more time than regular to boot FSD.

I've tried playing Morrowind, Timesplitters 2 and 3, Scarface and Scrapland. Only Scrapland plays with no problem, Scarface stopped when saving the game and the other three only last for about five minutes.

I also tried with Land of the Dead, bit this one went into a loading loop after the five minutes.

Thanks for your help.

I have experienced almost the same problem. I was using the 128mb version of the compatibility files, played Morrowind and other games with no problem but when I reboot/ start my RGH, it gradually took more times than usual up to 15 minutes!

Then when I investigate, I found that the settings.db file in the data folder of Aurora dashboard has been corrupted with this kind of parameter in the debug.log:

"Tools\\SQLite\\Kompex\\KompexSQLiteStatement.cpp\nline: 118\nerror: database disk image is malformed\"

It seems that the "User Recent Games" section has failed and I had to delete the whole data folder to rectify the problem.

Since I moved the games to a USB stick I don't get the long booting issue. Still some games won't play for more than 2~5 minutes, even those listed on the official compatibility list.

Hi everyone, I just posted the patches from the hacked 5829 build of the compatibility update (from 2011) to the latest 2018 (build 5832) version

How can I force games to use a different version XEFU emulator?

Is it enough to just change the title ID of a game via the default.xbe file to an ID of another game?

I'm using a RGH Xbox 360 Slim.

I figured out you can also change which emulator a game uses by hex editing an uncompressed xbox.xex file.

The hex string for the emulator follows the title ID in the xex.

For example, this is for Halo 2:

halo2.png

4D530064 is Halo 2's title ID. It uses the xefu1.1 emulator.

Below are the hex codes that correspond to the available emulators.

Code:
Emulator   Emu Hex

xefu       8200067C
xefu1.1    8200062C
xefu2      82000640
xefu3      82000668
xefu5      82000688
xefu6      82000654
xefu7      820006B0
xefu7b     8200069C

Is it also possible to expand the list and include titles that way?

I am trying to do this, but how do you uncompress a xbox.xex file? And wouldn't it need to be a .xbe file?
