Its quite neat really.

You set it up with Avalaunch ( which I wrote with some friends ) and this will come up when you boot :




When you select Games, you'll get this :




In order to put in new games, there's two ways - either FTP (since we put in a ftp server), or use a system we made called boostmode. Boostmode is from 5 to 1000 times faster, but it only sends xbox iso's over the network using Qwix (pc program), so in this case it'd be a good idea to use qwix to send it over, since it's a whole lot of files, and ftp hates masses of files.


If you'd like to see more bout avalaunch, click http://www.teamavalaunch.com/tour1.html

There's other dashboards as well, most of them works in similar ways, but it seems that we're the ones that figures out how things works Smiley

Sweet tap-dancing christ, is it too much to ask for you to put somewhere on the Avalaunch website an actual link to download Avalaunch?  Or instructions other than "go download it from the usual places", for those of us not enlightened enough to know where "the usual places" are?  Googling for a download site shows me lots of sites running pop-up click-through scams, "registration required" download sites ostensibly to harvest valid email addresses, and all manner of unscrupulous Google-bombing scum sites, which ain't exactly lending you a lot of credibility.

Say I want to play UQM on an Xbox.  Where would I need to go, and what would I need to download?  Small, mono-syllabic words, and maybe some crayon drawings would be preferred here.

hehehe

the thing is - Microsoft has outlawed the xbe's, so hosting something that popular would be a problem.  This is how you get it, step by step :

1.
go to irc, Efnet server

2.
join #xbins

3.
/msg xbins !list
( or whatever the login message says )

4.
use the login you get to the xbins server and get /xbox/apps/dashboard/avalaunch



There's one catch to it all - you need to have a modified xbox. It won't run on an unmodified xbox as it'd piss off microsoft a ton Wink   And you don't want that.

Heh, and miss a chance to poke Bill Gates of Borg in the eye?  Where do I look for more info on this, from the ground level?

I'm searching for this for my xbox as well.
I need the file uqm-0.4.0-3domovies.uqm. Do I need this file to play the game or can I use a different one?
Does anyone know where to find this file? I have all the rest.

Thanks.
