I agree, it would be great to be able to play those games on the Box, as well as Chasm: The Rift and others that aren't too demanding. I've tried basically every Dosxbox configuration with Blood and it runs WAY too slow to be playable. I had a feeling the Xbox just wasn't powerful enough to run those games under DOS, we can always keep our fingers crossed though! On another note, I wish someone could port WINE (basically a stripped down program that allows windows applications to run on other systems) to Xbox. It will run under Xbox Linux, but getting a game to load is a real pain and the linux program itself uses up too much system resources. I've got so far as getting Half-Life 1 installed and starting a new game, but it's just too slow. Guess I can always dream!
What about running the Linux version of Unreal Tournament on the XBox? If you could do that, you'd be a hero - UT is a superb game (much better than Unreal Championship on the XBox), and would be fanastic on the XBox. The download for the Linux build is:http://liflg.org/?catid=6&gameid=51
but you need the data files from your Windows CD. If you get a chance, please consider trying to get this working on the XBox. It would be the best news imaginable for us remaining XBox fans, so if you can get this working under Linux on the XBox then please post details for us non-Linux people to follow to get it working for us. UT is an amazing game, and it should
have been ported to the XBox, but since it wasn't, the Linux version is our only hope.
