    Default Original Xbox Nostalgia

    So seeing I have been without a console for a bit now, I decided to tinker with this old toy. I finally took the time to painstakingly find a way to manually update the console as I was not on the latest dash. For those that know what that means, not having the latest dash meant you could not play quite a large number of games. So thanks to having a retail copy of Halo 2 laying around, I stuck that in the tray and ran the update, thus allowing me to explore the full potential of a softmodded Xbox.

    First things first, I know I did this a long time ago, but I changed the light to a solid red, adjusted on the settings in the modified dash.


    But let's move on to the dash itself. I haven't done too much on it, but it's UnleashX. Nothing to major, and it's pretty user friendly. It also has the capability to play games off of blank DVDs. So in my case I'd generally burn away since the hard drive hasn't been upgraded yet.


    It does have a nifty little file manager on it as well. Comes in handy if you're looking to ftp files from the computer to the Xbox, or vice versa.


    So in this case, I ended up ftp'ing Star Wars: Battlefront to the console. It's quite a way to go back almost 10 years, but it's a very fun game to play, especially for it's time. The AI was so advanced as well. We need more games like this back on the shelves.




    Anyways, felt a little nostalgic (and I decided to use my phone for once). Figured I'd share it.

    I have an original Xbox sitting in a storage facility.

    I think we should all get the first Xbox and not the Xbox one this year, and set them up to work with XLink Kai servers and then play games against each other.

    Hell, if you want to softmod it and get Conker: Live and Reloaded, then I'd gladly play with you.

    I have my original xbox as well as a pile of games.

    Funny story actually, like 6 years (yes that recent, I assume people literally couldn't give these games away and so decided to dump them out their car window) ago we were walking home from the cinema (moving picture house to you americans) and a plastic bag containing 10 xbox original games. Including this old ass star wars game which was actually pretty goood, I remember the saber throw being bawse.

    I doubt I would have the time or the patience to update it etc, but its a sound idea fear bot!


    almost forgot.. So halo saved the day again??

    There's a difference between us. You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it.

    A couple years ago, a friend and I sat on the original Xbox playing Battlefront 1 for hours at a time. That game is still so fun to this day. Can't wait for Battlefront 3.

    Go find an old computer with an IDE hard drive and setup for a slave drive. All you need to softmod the console if you don't have a specific game.
