Is it possible to hack/mod Xbox games nowadays?
« on: June 24, 2018, 10:34:30 pm »
With the advent of the slow rising compatibility of Xbox emulators, particularly Cxbx-Reloaded, Xbox emulation is starting to become more and more prominent than ever before.

Now I've been meaning to ask for a while now. I know that .xbe files are executables that can only run on the original Xbox, and that on each of those executables, there's an .iso version of the Xbox games called .xiso.

My question is this: is it theoretically possible to hack (or in certain cases, "mod") an Xbox game, for either translation, restoration, or bug fixing?

Like, let's say, there's someone that wants to hack Conker: Live & Reloaded as an example. That person's goal is to uncensore every known voice clip that got censored (ever since Rare got bought by Microsoft), restore references that were on the original Conker's Bad Fur Day but not on the remake, etc. only for the sole purpose of making this game more like if Rare made a faithful HD remake to the game, and not a botched product when they were bought my M$.

So, the question still remains: is it possible to hack/mod Xbox games (.xiso particularly, because I don't know if .xbe can be hacked/modded)?
