Published by: forahobby on Tuesday, August 14, 2007
Tagged: Homebrew, Xbox 360,

The guys over at Xbox 360 Rally have done a fantastic job and gone to all the effort of writing up a Complete List of FREE Xbox 360 Live Marketplace Downloads..

Kudo's must go to the guys for putting in such a great effort..

If you have the MS Points, you can open the door to all the world’s delight and joy.

But what if you’re broke? Are you just left outside in the snow, to stare in the window from behind the bushes to see all the joyous boys and girls playing with their horse armor and their extra Crackdown skins? Of course not! There’s stuff for you, too, cheap ass!

In fact, there is a LOT of free stuff for you. Whether it be extra content for your favorite game, or the most worthless of things (*coughgamerpicscough*), there is a surprisingly large amount of free stuff for your downloading delight on Xbox LIVE.

    XeXMenu v1.0 - A Dashboard for Xbox 360 Homebrew

    XeXMenu v1.0 - A Dashboard for Xbox 360 Homebrew
    Published by: forahobby on Sunday, January 24, 2010
    Tagged: Homebrew, Xbox 360,

    Team XeDEV have just released their new homebrew Xbox360 dashboard with FTP support and many more features.

    You might be wondering why it's XeDEV who are releasing this.. Since some people left the team, they don't want to retain the "freexex" name anymore. Also changed the name to XeXmenu (this is because XeXLoader is now much more of a menu than just a loader). So enjoy the new stuff :

    What's news/fixed:
    - Gametitle extraction from NXEART if possible (toggle)
    - Games with more than just one XEX will show up multiple times
    * Embedded FTP Server to transfer your stuff directly from your computer
    - Use xbox:xbox@ip:21
    * Use FTP to read/write/delete your onboard flash
    - Only user flash/flash is able to do that!
    * Support for all found XEX files. Not just default.xex (toggle)
    * Shows the content of any GAMES folder on any device
    - Use GAMES, APPLICATIONS, EMULATORS for auto discovery menu on each device
    * Switch between games/apps/emus in the discovery menu using RB/LB
    * Auto scale skins for most resolutions (toggle)
    * Different help screens for each menu
    * Use DPad to switch between devices while browsing files
    * Xbox1 compatibility partition support (if exists)
    - Xbox1 partition known as "HddX"
    * Alphanumeric listing for files
    * No more XEX auto patching when copying DVDs
    * Manual XEX patching for freeBOOT users
    * Configuration menu
    * Real XBox save system for the configuration
    - Gamesave known as "Unkown Xbox Game"
    * Chose between different skins from the configuration menu
    * Support for own skins
    * many more things we can't remember

    Press "BACK" for detailed help pages!

    Note: If you only get a black screen on startup try to delete the XeXmenu savegame known as "Unknown Xbox Game" using system tab in dash.

    There are some issues with the FTP upload speed for some people at the moment. We're still working on that. This will be fixed in further releases!

    ''Guitar Hero 3'' robot plays ''Fire and Flames'' on Expert 100%

    ''Guitar Hero 3'' robot plays ''Fire and Flames'' on Expert 100%
    Published by: forahobby on Wednesday, February 27, 2008
    Tagged: Gaming, Homebrew, Xbox 360,

    Looks like there is a new rock god on the Guitar Hero block.. A bot getting 100% (FC) on Through the Fire and Flames with a final score of 983,802.

    A video has recently been posted on youtube of a bot (robot) which can be programmed to play all Guitar Hero Songs 100% in expert mode even using the whammy bar to help maximize it's score. Not a simple task for your average human!

    Check out the video below of the bot playing "Through the Fire and Flames" and getting 100%.

    For those that don't know, a bot (short for robot) is a device/program that will automatically play Guitar Hero based on how it was programmed. This bot was made by modifying an Xbox 360 controller and wiring it up to a microcontroller.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Q: How long did it take to build this and get it working?
    A: I had something functional (see last video) in around 1 week. To get this fully working, it took around 2 months of working on it on and off.

    Q: What system is this for?
    A: This is for the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero 3 (although untested, it will most likely work for GH1 and GH2 also)

    Q: Do you play on Xbox Live?
    A: I have an Xbox Live account however I have NO plans on taking this bot on there just for the sake of cheating the high scores.

    Q: Why would you build this to cheat?
    A: The challenge of this project was making a Guitar Hero playing robot, which I assure you was anything but easy. The point was not to cheat, but to build a functioning robot, at which I feel I have succeeded.

    Q: How did you get this bot?
    A: I built it.

    Q: What does the robot look like?
    A: A high quality video will be posted when I get off my lazy ass.

    A lot of people have requested I make a video of the bot doing The Devil Went Down To Georgia. I would be willing to make this video, however, I would need a copy of the note chart for this song. Because it is DLC, I can't get a copy off the DVD of the game. If anyone has access to their Xbox 360 Hard Drive and is willing to send me the file I need, please private message me. The file I need is most likely called "tdwdtg.mid.qb.xen" or "tdwdtg_song.pak.xen" or something similar.
