Quote from: Jorpho on June 25, 2018, 01:52:48 AMDid you see something in particular to suggest that XBox game data should somehow be any less hackable than any other data?
Quote from: John Enigma on June 25, 2018, 04:48:11 AMWell, these are games that were made for a console designed by a computer company. Since Xbox emulation is still an uncharted territory, I don't know if these games can be hacked to the levels of PS2 and GameCube, which are somehow easy to do, especially in the translation department, and HD texture making.

Quote from: Psyklax on June 26, 2018, 02:21:48 PMWhat difference does that make? PCs were designed by computer companies and last I checked, they were hackable.Like Jorpho said, anything is possible. Open an ISO in a hex editor and change a few bytes. There, you hacked it. The reason Xbox hacking isn't up to the level of the others of its generation is obviously due to the near total lack of emulation up until about a year ago, and even now it's not even close to useable. The reason for THIS is complex but has nothing to do with the manufacturer. Dolphin has been a major open-source success story for GCN/WII while the PS2 was always going to get attention given it's the biggest selling console in history with the biggest ever library of games. Most of the Xbox's best games are non-exclusive and the few exclusives worth playing have since been released in other forms. Add to that the complexity of that generation and you can see why the interest has been lacking.
Quote from: FAST6191 on June 26, 2018, 04:03:12 PMI don't know if lack of emulation was the trouble -- hardware debugging was a thing and the consoles themselves got very nice and easy to do hacks towards the end, far easier than anything even to this day on the consoles themselves
