Xbox360 Homebrew in Progress: MAME360, ScummVM
Posted by XanTium | March 5 00:59 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
We got this interesting email from a trusted developer that wishes to remain anonymous for now. He has been working on a port of MAME and ScummVM for the Xbox360 for some time now. The development and pictures below are from a devkit, but with the recent Hypervisor Exploit (kernel 4532/4548 only for now) there's hope you'll be able to run this on a retail Xbox360 some day:


In light of the recent 360 hack and possibility of widespread homebrew in the future, I wanted to share some news with you and X-S.

I've been working on a port of MAME to the 360. I call it 'MAME360'.

MAME360 MAME360
More Screenshots: here
Now for a bit about the project:
* It's based on MAME 0.112 and is fairly easy to keep up-to-date (doesn't need any messing around with like Mameox on the xbox).
* Originally it was based on SDLMAME but I've since ported a 360 specific osd layer (so SDL for the 360 exists - as an aside I also have a port of ScummVM in the works too).
* Mame doesn't include any dynarec cpu emulation on anything other than an x86 platform. So any game that is PSX or N64 based for example doesn't run at all well.
* Most other stuff (that I've tried) runs pretty well.
* At the moment it will only run on 360 dev/debug/test kits. Whether it will ever run on a hacked retail box remains to be seen.

let me be the first to say.... awesome smile.gif

I'm glad there's development ongoing even without a fully hacked platform...

ive got the dash version with the vulnerability.. now i just need a way to [easily] exploit it.. i cant wait to try some homebrew firsthand.. thats when having two 360's pays off.

id say this is the true beginning.. hopefully someone will show some homebrew so amazing, that the want to hack the 360 will increase enough to find whatever solid vulnerability needs found.

It is sweet how it is not a fully hacked console yet people are working with devkits to create things. Awesome job.

cool to be able to start where games "kind of" started - at least for old schoolers.
