Will you be a part of the Ressurection?
1. Beyond or more than what is usual, expected, or necessary; additional.
2. Larger or better than what is usual: an extra binding.
1. All the videos, artwork, in-depth game info, manuals, configs, rumbles to pimp your box in the most plug'n play experience available for any emulated system on any platform in history.
2. Everything organized and tested to work right when you FTP it over to your Box!
RessurectionXtras 1.0 Has Been Released!
It was a long time coming and I hope that now that it's been out for a while that it's all bringing back a lot of good memories for folks.
I'm proud to say that as of August 13, 2010 there have been 5,911 unique downloads of 47 Rx 1.0 t0rrenzs. I figured in my head that would be about 200 people who have made part of the Xtras collection a showcase for their XBox and the centerpiece of nostalgic conversation with their family and friends. I saw today that there were over 400 unique downloads of the emulators collection alone though, so that's twice the people I'd have thought jumped on board already.
We'd be thrilled to see even more people discover this project in the future, and hope that those of you who have acquired it already are really enjoying the Xtras experience.
Tell your friends, and Remember to pay it forward....
If you like this project, and you feel up to it, then give back.
Seeding, and making this available to others with ease is the standard way to do it. Put an XBox together for your kid brother or a friend and let them get others interested in the project. I made a lot of friends here during this project and I'm really proud of what we all accomplished. It makes me even more proud to see people pushing onwards now that I'm at the sidelines watching. Madmab still has some amazing additions to the functionality of the XPORT emulators, and some others are putting together great collections of DOS and Amiga stuff, among other things.
If anybody sees this after the 1.0 release and wants to help, there is plenty to be done.
Join the RessurectionXtras IRC chat to see what you can do to help.
We're looking forward to meeting ya,
I never owned an XBox back when it was relevant. I got one off my bro for 50 bucks when I read about how cool modding them sounded. In the beginning, this project wasn't nearly as ambitious as what you see today. I was just one guy that wanted to create a romlist for a few major systems that worked with the FATX 42 character limit and then have a screenshot for each working game I tested. I wanted a collection of working games and emulators, with just a little eye-candy, that could be sent to a couple of XBoxes on the fly for my brothers.
Since then, after meeting some very talented people here, that desire morphed into something much greater... something that one person alone could never accomplish. An entirely streamlined collection of roms, screenshots, videos, manuals, GameFAQs, VGMaps, game synopsis, commercials, rumbles, cheats and some other very cool things that all work interactively with the games themselves.
I believe that you will agree with me after trying the Xtras for yourself..... This is the next step in the evolution of emulation.
My team has built the Xtras upon the shoulders of giants who have spent many years collecting this stuff before us.
Now that I'm done with the project I love seeing others tirelessly working on things like rumbles and cheat code lists, systems not covered in Rx 1.0, and some things that we never even thought of when I was active here.
I hope to see you guys port this to more advanced systems down the road which will allow for greater compatibility for systems like N64, Playstation and DOSBox.
Special thanks to Madmab, Gilles9999, Horscht, Mega_Man_(?), Stupot1 (aka Stupot73), pCeSlAyEr, nate1579, Sotu, BombBloke, Excalibur, cbagy, wimpy, bigby, nytmar3, dynce1987, waal, CarnagebyBob and Dannermax for the great impact their contributions have had so far. (If I forgot to thank you here, don't be afraid to let me know!!! I know I'm missing people!!!!!!!!!!!)
Note to everyone about the legal Xtras Downloads which used to be hosted on this thread [edited] (08-18-10):
All hosted links to files at MegaUpload have been deleted by somebody from another gamer site that, understandably so, didn't appreciate their stuff being included.
Links to all legal files have been uploaded again, but they will not be posted here for everyone to see as they were before. I know at one point we had been doing these links on this page for over a year, but I just can't bring myself to putting these links public again. In a 2 month period we saw the MU links taken down by a rabid gamer fan from another site, the spreadsheets blocked for violating terms of service (still unknown why this occurred), and the kick ass torrents we made at a popular underground gaming site taken down because they were apparently not zipped the way that they liked them and a moderator decided to show us how big his stick was.
No.... These links are far more valuable in the hands of trusted members who can use them to quickly get the content and help get it out there to everyone else much quicker.
As was mentioned above the 1.0 Xtras is out there now for you to discover.... Of course, site rules maintain that I can't say where they are, but if you were resourceful enough to find this site on your own I don't imagine it'll be too much trouble for you.
Seek and ye shall find...
My apologies about the links to legal files not being put back up here in the future,
Some of this is out of date now, but it should all still be helpful enough to guide you in the right direction.
HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONVERTING VIDEOS TO XMV
VIDEOS WON'T RUN ON THE BOX IF YOU DON'T CONVERT THEM TO XMV
(XMV versions are out there, so this program should be irrelevant to leechers now)XMV CONVERTER INSTRUCTIONS
All video creation for RessurectionXtras 1.0 is complete!!!!
If you'd like to help make videos for future releases, such as higher quality vids, or videos for newly added games such as hacks and translations, or the systems being worked on that were neglected in Rx 1.0, check out this link for a great collection of EMULATORS WITH VIDEO SUPPORT
Due to site rules, I am unable to post the WMV to XMV converter here.
(XMV versions are out there, so this program should be irrelevant to most people now)
All synopsis entries for the RessurectionXtras 1.0 covered games are complete!!!!
There is still more work to be done on new game adds and systems that are being worked on now that were left out of Rx 1.0. Having done in the area of 10,000 of these spanning 15 or more systems on my own, I can say that any small relief any of you could give by even doing as little as 10-50 or so of these would be great for the people continuing work on this project. It happens to be the most boring and tedious work of all, in my opinion, but of it didn't get done it would seem like a huge hole exists in the Xtras without them.
