some help with emulators on 360

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

So i have been playing games on my xbox 360 jtag/rgh for quite some time now. Yet there is one thing i never explored on my 360 and that's the possibility to have emulators on my 360 and play older games. I do know that aurora has a xbox emulator installed and i have tried that but i am looking for other emulators.

i have seen some posts on realmodscene that were about packages full of emulators but as far as i saw there was no real toturial on what and how to install emulators. i also don't know any jargon surrounding emulators so understanding those posts were a bit difficult.

i have seen Retroarch files wich i believe were sometimes used on the 360 but i've also seen Felida having a package of some sort.

Some help with what and where to install the emulators would be appreciated. I also suppose the roms are just the regular roms that you can everywhere. Or does something have to be done to the roms before putting them on the 360? Or can i download just one emulator like a GBA emulator if i only need one.

My goal with his is to play all of almost all castlevania games.

In short: I am a noob that don't know anything about the emulators for 360 and i need a basic toturial.

commenting a link to a toturial is also fine.

 

Thanks in advance!!

Ok.. So im going to suggest my build of retroarch.. As it is setup already.

 

Yes you can download just 1 emulator. No, nothing special has to be done to the roms.

 

The emulators can be placed anywhere on your hdd, just make sure to scan for them so they will show in aurora coverflow.

 

In my build, just place your roms inside the roms folder(create it if it isnt there, but it should in mine). 

So snes roms would go:

Retroarch/Snes/roms/

 

And same for nes/gba/etc. But in their specific emulator folder.

 

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask mate

So i can just use any retroarch version? because i also saw something called retroarch360 if i'm correct. There is also something called Mame and if i'm correct that is something just like retroarch. correct me if i'm wrong.

Ok.. Retroarch is a front-end.

There are standalone emulators, snes360 for example.

The retroarch cores are all the emulators.

Snes/mame/gba/etc

Yes you can download whatever you want.. I suggest my build as it is "noob" friendly.. And is more polished than the original release.

yeah, make sure to read it, also.. make sure you set the script data as "emulator" in the scan settings of aurora, so you can take advantage of the Rom Auto-Launch feature..

could you explain why with your package, mame roms appear upside down and out of scale, they work fine in a standalone mame 360 emulator, I would like to use the retroarch

Ive had no problem with mame.. Like I said before.. Mame roms are version specific.. You cant use different versions

god knows what romsets I have, I think a mixture, my working version of mame is based on mame 0.72, I like it because it gives a cover on the cover flow, however, the retroarch functionality is great, getting working rompacks is a royal PITA.

Is it just me and you here ?, you must be sick of me

I mostly check on my phone haha.. But there are others.. And like I said.. Emulators go by folder name.. So you can rename retroarch folder to correct emu with cover.. 

 

I will check on the mame again here tonight.. But others have no problem.. As i ported the sound fix for certain games lol

Yer cool, let me know, maybe it its my rom, I can try and upload it here.

 

I re-look at the retro arch, however, I must say I like the standalone ones I have, especially SNES and megadrive emus, they have neat back ground music and cool frontends...very polished.

The ones I released are standalone ones.. Haha..

 

With some minor editing.. The front end can be easily changed.. At the user level..
