I know you guys have probably seen this question a million times, I just must not have looked at that page.
I bought myself a X3 modchip (without the extras) and a 250MB maxtor diamondmax 9 7200rpm 16MB cache HD. I'm pretty sure I got some good shit, but I dont know what the best emulators are. I have found lists, and stuff like that. But I am wondering if you guys could give me just a few ideas on really good emulators. I guess I would like to have emulators for everything ever made, but I don't think that is possible. But I guess just the best emulator for whatever I can have would be great. Thanks for your input, and your patience.

I read the pinned post, and I saw all the emulators, I was just wanting to know which of all those emulators would be the best for I want. I basically want everything. Should I just put all of those emulators on my Xbox? I just dont really understand which ones are repeat system emulators.

Those are the best ones. They have weeded out the not so good ones and listed the best. Isnt that what you want? You say you basically want everything, so yes put all of those emu's (in that post I linked you to) on your xbox.

Alright, now for the question I hope doesnt get me laughed at.
Will that take up too much space for all the games on each system? I've heard from a friend of mine that you can get every game ever made on each system, including imports (and thats alot of games). Obviously I have plenty of room, but I haven't the slightest about how much room each emu takes up. You guys do. All I know is, "You get what you pay for" So I got a big HD and the X3. Im hoping that I will still have room for 'collections'

1) You'd better own the originals, or be careful of what you say here

2) Sizes vary. The old roms are quite small. N64 roms vary (for example, Conker's Bad Fur Day was a 64MB cart, IIRC..)

3) Every PSOne game ever made? That'd be how many gigs?

Dump them from the carts, or rip your own images from your Playstation/Sega CD games, etc...

Otherwise don't ask. god helps those who help themselves (because we won't).

When I said that they could get every game on every system, I didnt mean all at once. That would take like 5000 GB wouldnt it? And what did I say that was wrong? Ive seen people saying things, that I thought, were much worse than my posts. And could somebody give me a link on how to put games on my HD when I get it modded? Ill do some looking, but just in case. I have many games I would like to put on my HD (NES, SNES,ATARI,N64,SEGA,and Playstation). Do you hook up cords to the xbox, or what do you do? Please gimme a link
Thanks

what u were asking about is piracy related, and if u bothered to read the rules you would know thats not allowed.

FTP them over to your hdd.. Simple. If you dont know how to ftp there are several tuts on the X-S main site under tutorials.

Once again, I apologise...I am new to this and have read rules regulations and all that good stuff. I just dont really understand all the technical stuff. Piracy? Thats copying right? I dont plan on stealing or anything like that...I just kinda thought you mod your xbox to be able to download onto your hd? If I am wrong correct me. But I guess being a noob had its downfalls. And I dont even know what ftp is. You dont just hook up your NES to your xbox or whatever system? This seems a little more complicated than I was told.

Having ROM's for games you don't physically own is illegal, like downloading a copy of Halo 2 if you havent bought it.

FTP=File Transfer Protocol, a method for transferring files on PC to/from xbox.

As for hooking up an NES to an xbox....you've got some reading to do.
