At long last, I have been able to find *MOST* of my XDKs. I've gotten a long list of requests to reupload these, and I managed to find most of them. There's more but they are on a disc that randomly appears and disappears somehow. Right now, that disc has managed to "disappear" again, so I have to wait until it re-appears so that I can share the long awaited and highly sought after 3911 XDK!


March 2002 XDK 4361
June 2002 XDK 4627
XDK 5344 (Files only; couldn't find an installer for this one)
June 2003 XDK 5558
XDK 5933

Additional Links:

contains XDKs 4361, 4627, 5344, 5558, 5659, 5788, 5849, 5849.16, and 5933. (This guy backed up all of my downloads from Assembler Games).

3146.3_December_2000_Recovery.iso
3223.1_February_2001_AlphaII_Recovery.iso
3424.1 SDK & Recovery
3521.1 SDK & Recovery (big thanks to Borman for dumping!)
4361_Tools.zip
XBSESetup.exe (5933.1) -- removed, already included inside XDKSetup5933
XDKRecovery5558.exe (from XBOX.SDK.5558.June-COMPLEX, which afaik hasn't been posted yet)
XDKSetup5558.2.exe
https://mega.nz/#F!tL4HDI7J!FN6cLvccOSvXkomVrcyDhQ

Titox:
All of the above, include the XDK 4400 include/lib files and a few other things in addition, such as the XDK 3911 recovery DVT3 ISO.

Hopefully this will satisfy the need for missing XDKs for now. Feel free to moderate as necessary.

EDIT: For 4627 and earlier, you'll need Visual Studio 6.0 as well as the appropriate Service and Processor Packs. You can download these here & here! For later versions, you'll need Visual Studio .net 2002 or 2003 (7.x).

EDIT2: Updating links above w/ the ones contributed below. Also adding an archive.org link to the appropriate processor packs for Visual Studio 6.0 users.

Thanks for sharing. Was there ever a recovery .xbe version of 5933 for updating a debug/development kit via DVD like there was for the older releases?

Just uploaded my personal XDK collection to Mega: https://mega.nz/#F!DJx1ga6R!An_oFHV7C9GogayUzS5KsQ

It includes 3 of the 4 XDKs you mentioned you had but needed to find (5659, 5788, 5849) as well as a more complete version of at least one of the ones you uploaded (can't remember which one right now).

In total it contains XDKs 4361, 4627, 5344, 5558, 5659, 5788, 5849, 5849.16, and 5933.

Also has files and info for doing retail to debug conversions and some example code you uploaded somewhere else before that I downloaded a while back.

Looking forward to 3911 once you find it!

Wow, nice work gathering these! Some nice things in here...

Like the XBox_DevKit_Recovery_Disc-WAM.rar, which looks like it might be the recovery for 3911.1 :eek:

Doesn't include the SDK sadly but the recovery is still a great find, thanks for posting it!

EDIT: Did a little digging and found a couple things that haven't been posted yet, you can find them at https://mega.nz/#F!tL4HDI7J!FN6cLvccOSvXkomVrcyDhQ

3146.3_December_2000_Recovery.iso
3223.1_February_2001_AlphaII_Recovery.iso
3424.1 SDK & Recovery
3521.1 SDK & Recovery (big thanks to Borman for dumping!)
4361_Tools.zip
XBSESetup.exe (5933.1) -- removed, already included inside XDKSetup5933
XDKRecovery5558.exe (from XBOX.SDK.5558.June-COMPLEX, which afaik hasn't been posted yet)
XDKSetup5558.2.exe

EDIT2: Also a weird oddity I just noticed, it looks like 5849.15 is actually newer than 5933?
PE headers say that 5933 was built 16th Feb 2004, while 5849.15 SDK was built 3rd Feb 2005, & 5849.6 recovery 11th May 2004, docs also mention that 5849.15 was released on 7th Feb 2005.

(doc files seem to confirm too: "Built on Monday, February 16, 2004. Build #5933" vs "Built on Thursday, January 20, 2005. Build #5849")

I wonder if that means it's better to use that 5849 release for XDK work? :unsure:

Very cool, downloading these now to add to my collection :)

Maybe that 5933 release was thrown together to be used for some internal game and then the 5849.15 update to 5849 contains whatever improvements 5933 had but possibly cleaned up for public release maybe with more stuff added. Or maybe 5933 has some unique stuff that was only needed for that internal game or games. Who knows. Cool find!

EDIT: Btw for whatever reason it looks like your 5849.15 folder doesn't actually contain the XDK, just empty folders.

Also not sure why the WAM release says 5849.16 and the list of releases says 5849.15... Maybe a typo on their part? It's in the file name as well as the nfo.

Seems 5344 might have had a full leak at some point, some japanese BBS archives from early 00's mention it a few times anyway, on some "NY cluster", might have been called "Microsoft Xbox XDK 5344.zip", can't find much else about it though...

(Looks like XBSESetup.exe is included inside the actual XDKSetup too, so I've removed that from the MEGA.)

EDIT: Seems NY is referring to the Winny japanese P2P client, I had a try at using that + it's successor Share, but didn't get any results searching for XDK :( Maybe I didn't set something up properly though.

Did a quick compare of the headers and looks like that's probably the case, 5849 -> 5933 added a bunch of new XOnline things, 5933 -> 5849.15 includes those XOnline changes along with some other small things that were missing from 5933, so I guess 5849.15 probably is the best release to use.

I might have still been uploading when you saw the empty folders, is there a XBOX.XDK.5849.16-WAM.rar file there for you now?

Also not sure why the WAM release says 5849.16 and the list of releases says 5849.15... Maybe a typo on their part? It's in the file name as well as the nfo.
Yeah I was guessing typo, can't find anything else mentioning .16 other than their release anyway.

Yep it popped up as I was still browsing and downloading the stuff I didn't have. I really like your organization with the folders, I ended up reorganizing my local folders the same way (left Mega as-is).

Thanks for digging into the code and confirming my suspicions! I had a feeling it was possible they were incrementing build numbers internally (since that was an internal only release), but for whatever reason stuck with the same build number for the external release and made it a point release update instead. I worked at Apple for a while and we had separate internal and external build numbers / source forks for stuff like iOS and macOS, so it seemed likely they did something similar.

Interesting...if there's a 5849.17 then maybe that WAM release really is 5849.16 and the newer updates are just not on that list. I guess we'd have to find a copy of 5849.15 somewhere to be sure...

@Borman is it available somewhere for download? I'd love to take a look!

It isn't. I also have a version or two of 5849.15, if I get time Ill check.

Edit:
The WAM version looks to be 5489.15, which is what it is labeled as in the archive. I can upgrade it to 5849.17 without issue.

Thanks for confirming the version of the WAM release. Regarding 5849.17, that would be awesome whenever you have a spare minute.

Nice, thanks for posting!

Looks like the 3911 in here marked XDK3911_DVT is different to the 3911 from WAM's release.
Had a look at it with exiso and seems it's actually version 3823.1!

I think I saw mention somewhere that August 2001 had two releases, one for final kits and one for betas, so I guess now we have both of them :D

Haven't checked this thread in almost a year but holy crap! You guys backed up my old uploads from assemblergames! Some of this stuff I thought I lost forever, like the XDK 4400 include/lib files (an XDK that never saw the light of day afaik).

Someone DMed me on discord asking about XDKs, so I checked the thread and BAM! All the stuff that I was worried I'd have lost for good. Thanks a bunch everyone.
