I had an idea a little while ago that I thought could revolutionize free online play for the xbox.
Ok, all the "tunneling" programs work with system link, right? What if we modified the *.xbe or another file(not sure what file contains this) to connect to a different ip for xbox live... Then you could just click Xbox live on the menu in Halo 2, for example, and instead of connecting to the official server, you connect to a server running on a home PC. I'm sure once we got this much working adding in Ranks, Matchmaking, and other stuff wouldnt be too much of a stretch.
I don't think it would be extemely hard, it would just take a lot of packet sniffing and programming.
Anyways, do you guys think it would work?

its not like the dreamcast where it was as simple of using a codebreaker code to change/re-direct the server's IP.. let alone in its entirety that its Legal one bit. second you'd get a emulated XBL system you'd get M$ down your arse for sure

I'd be willing to bet they just use DNS.

Here is the problem:
- Even if we modify the XEX's (you seem to forget they are encrypted, and need a checksum as part of the header), changing the IP to connect to 'as Live' is only a part of the problem
- Right now, we cannot even test any of this except on exploited consoles. Those dashboards should be modified to connect to such a network too
- Only if we control the dashboard (and hypervisor) can we find out a way to mimic Live to the console, because nobody (except MS) knows how Live works
Would the big server sites (ones that host for games like UT, etc) be willing to support this? Probably not considering they do not want to be on MS' blacklist of vendors. This will only encourage copyright infringment more than anything else, so definitely not.
