Proper XBox Emulation might be around the corner

Postby Sabkahn » Fri Jun 22, 2018 5:32 pm

Apparently the team behind CXBX Reloaded is about to release Version 0.1 of their emulator to the public in the near future and it seems that they got a bunch of games up and running already.

General talk about the current state of 2 XBox Emulators

This is really exciting news! The amount of progress CXBX reloaded made kind of makes me a bit skeptical at least from watching Austins vid. Still not enough to convince some to use emulation rather than buying an Xbox or Xbox one/360 but the fact that there is finally progress being made makes me happy.

At this point there is IMO no need or even a reason for most people to make a switch, heck, I would argue that even with the PS2 most people are still better of with the real hardware. Thing is though the XBox consoles that are around won´t last forever (At least not the disc drives, modded Systems with a bigger HDD are a different story) and the official Emulator on the 360 and XBone don´t support nearly all the games, so having a decent Emulator on the Horizon that has a chance of getting all the games running is great for the future.

I guess the only benefit is higher resolutions? And saving $50 on an Xbox.

It also has the potential of ironing out Performance issues, i.e. Half-Life 2 has massive Frame Rate issues (but then again you could play that one on PC anyway).

But the main benefit of a working emulator is that it keeps the games accesible even when the consoles itself begin to not work anymore for whatever reason in the future.

Finally my fave console getting some emulation love, Lots of games with unlocked frame rates so im looking forward to the future.

If only they had all the info microsoft has then progress would be insane, because xb1 backwards compatibility already improves frame rate and resolutions. Like empire is almost constant 60fps on xb1 vs 30 with drops on og hardware same with morrowind etc
