Hey all. Got pcsxbox v4 earlier, and i like the feature of being able to connect to your computer's Samba/Netbios server to run images of psx games. However I have been having trouble setting a server up in my Windows XP environment. Does anybody here know how to get one set up, that will allow me to connect with PCSXBOX v4? Xport?

BTW, great looking emulator, thanks alot!

I don't think it's a "NOT" working thing, just we need to set up a proper smb server on our computers.

I see. Ok well you do know that in the pcsx.ini file that you set up your SMB information in there.

Would you be kind enough as to show me how to set up an SMB server?

Thanks

Protosstic, to set up a smb server, set up a second account in windows, if your account already has a password, skip this step
Set your psx isos folder to shared and name it something like PCSXBOX in the options
then in the pcsxbox ini where it says smb or samba servers or something type in SMB://username:password@yourcomputername/thenameyougavetoyourfolder

so if your computer name would be Protosstic and you used the user/pass xbox/xbox and the shared folder is called PCSXBOX on the network then it would be
SMB://xbox:xbox@Protosstic/PCSXBOX

and you're done

I tested this out on a win2k machine.

When you edited the PCSX.INI file, did you upload it to the correct place? (i.e. overwrote the existing one on your xbox?)

Also, when you re-ran pcsxbox, did you go to configuration and do the "force reload of d:*.ini files"?

Just been trying, having no luck at all.

Before, the Xbox would studder for a second when i clicked SMB, and then it would show nothing, now when I click SMB, it goes there real fast, but there is nothing there. It is not connecting for some reason..
I also tried the Force Reload d: ini the first time i just tried again, and still nothing.

when you made a smb server, did you get the right computer name, check it in the properties of my computer and i think that if the folder is shared it should show up there too
and don't put the directory path, just the name you assigned to it when you shared it

I am having no luck.. My Computer name is Marc, xbox/xbox is the login info the user account.
PSX is a folder which is shared, and is available to the network.

smbshare=SMB://xbox:xbox@Marc/PSX

That is the line i got set up.

Really not having much luck sad.gif
