Is the Xbox 360 still the best option for getting as many original titles running without issues with Fusion with emulation and no original hardware? Or is xQEMU or other projects coming along that have surpassed that? I would have loved for the Xbox One/Series consoles to have more OG Xbox games available but I was surprised how sparse the catalog was, with less than 50 games. Still better than the competition, but man, that kind of sucks.

I have no idea about the 360 or any of that, all I know is Xbox One X is simply amazing and the definitive way to play the select few Xbox titles it has in 4K 60fps. This also extends to 360 titles like Ninja Gaiden II.

>> No.7010323

xbox 360 still seems to be the best we have control over, sad as that is. but it's surely cheaper and easier to get a modded original than a modded 360.

>> No.7010337

Main problem is wanting to play 360 games as well as a requirement of mine so that's why I can't roll with just an original. But I do see your point that if original Xbox games are what you are after, it makes sense. Also, I dunno about prices, especially when supply is tight with the original Xbox in some countries and the 360 can at times be had for cheaper. I live in the US so could go either way depending on what I wanted more.

>> No.7010378

360's original emulation is kinda bad and not a good replacement for the original, so don't think of it as killing two birds with one stone, think of it as whether you'd rather mostly play original games or 360 games.
even pretty simple games like halo 1 run worse on 360. it does a nice job upscaling, better than my TV with the original's component signal, but the image quality gained isn't worth the performance lost. JSRF is a joke.

If you're technical it's an easy fix.

There's an actual digital hdmi mod coming out (or did it already come out?).
If you're a CRT nerd, you can hardmod with a VGA bios to connect it to VGA monitors that support sync-on-green. You'll either need component cables + adapter(s), or just wire your own VGA cable.
Be picky about what component cables you use, though. Cheap ones are shit quality.

This game starts out so incredibly well but by the middle of the game it’s just repetitive shit.

From my experience it actually runs worse due to possible emulation errors. Outrun 2 has immense slowdowns specifically in stage 1 (Palmside Beach), and Midnight Club 3 generally plays very very slow in races. The only thing that was enhanced, if it even exists, is probably Halo 2 because iirc MS did some official forward compatibility for that.

Modchips bypass the bios chip and boot a custom bios. They generally don't give you extra features compared to flashing the console's own chip with the custom bios (known as TSOP flashing).
They're useful for revision 1.6 xboxes that don't have a flashable TSOP, or if you're fiddling with the bios often.
