: The above setup is particular to a ROUTER setup. Generally, the "Defaultgateway = 192.168.0.1" and the "IP = 192.168.0.2" (remember to configure your Xbox and PC appropriately [IP's so that they don't match each other... PC and XBOX CANNOT be the SAME IP]. You must use a [generally] yellow Cat5 PATCH / Crossover / Crosstalk cable)
11.) COPY AND PASTE the newly configured "EvoX.ini" file into your "temp" folder (4541000d/000000000000/temp)
12.) With this file configured, SAVE and EXIT it.
13.) Prepare yourself with either a Modified X-Box of someone elses AND a standard memory unit.. OR an Action Replay. Both
methods below REQUIRE an ORIGINAL COPY of "007: Agent Under Fire"
Phase two awaits...
Phase Two: ???
This section has TWO methods. One REQUIRES a modified X-Box, a copy of the ACTUAL GAME "007: Agent Under Fire", and a standard, run of the mill X-Box memory unit (method X). The other requires a ACTION REPLAY (method Y). These will be methods X and Y respectively, henceforth...
++ METHOD X
1.) Obtain a modified X-Box. With it, ensure you can now FTP into the box. I use FlashFXP (use Kazaa
2.) Once able to explore the mod X-Box, go to E: and then into Folder UDATA. It may be a little cluttered here, but fear not!
3.) Now, TRANSFER the Folder we CREATED earlier named "4541000d" into "E:UDATA" . Once done, move on.
4.) Insert your Standard Memory Unit into the game controller as usual.
5.) Reboot the X-Box
6.) Once on whatever dash you are using, get to the ORIGINAL MS DASHBOARD (green one... you know...).
7.) Select MEMORY
8.) Select "HARD DRIVE" (middle)
9.) FIND the "007: Agent Under Fire" game save and highlight it.
10.) Move your cursor to the RIGHT so that you are now sub-highlighting the icon inside the rectangle. HIT A
11.) Select COPY, and then TO MEMORY UNIT.
12.) Once done, power down mod X-Box, and prepare for battle by removing the Memory Unit.
13.) Place Memory Unit into YOUR X-Box controller. Plug controller into YOUR UNMODDED X-Box.
14.) Power ON unmodded X-Box, go to MEMORY, then to MEMORY UNIT (1). Find the "007: Agent Under Fire" game save. Highlight it, and move your cursor to the RIGHT. Select COPY and have it save to your HARD DRIVE. Once this is done, move on. (duh!
15.) Press EJECT, and insert ORIGINAL disc of "007: AGENT UNDER FIRE"
16.) Once in-game, select "LOAD MISSION" from the main screen.
17.) Your screen should freak out a tad, and BAM. You SHOULD be at the head-end of EvoX. Congratulations!
18.) At this point, you can either click on "INSTALL EVOX..." (at the bottom) or FTP into YOUR unmodded X-Box. We will do the rest in Phase 3...
++ METHOD Y
1.) Connect your ACTION REPLAY USB DONGLE to the PC.
2.) Install ACTION REPLAY SOFTWARE via CD-ROM.
3.) Insert ACTION REPLAY memory card into the USB dongle.
4.) Go back to your FOUR folders (007aufsavewithEvoxInstaller, Bert_is_Cheating_on_Ernie_-_The_Pheonix_Project, UDATA, 4541000d).
5.) Once there, COPY AND PASTE the folder we CREATED "4541000d" into the Folder we CREATED "UDATA".
6.) When this is done, go back to the four main folders we made earlier (see above)
7A.) Now you must ZIP this folder. PAY ATTENTION!
* If you use WinZIP, CREATE a FOLDER named "AgentUnder_BONDALL". Place the Folder we created "UDATA" into the folder we just created "AgentUnder_BONDALL" into it.
Using WinZIP will JUST ZIP the folder's contents, thus leaving you with a folder named "AgentUnder_BONDALL.ZIP" and the contents (which SHOULD be at this point, because we all paid attention.. UDATA/4541000d/000000000000/... so on and so forth).
* Using WindowsXP, right click the folder we created "UDATA" and highlight "Send To..." and then click on "COMPRESSED FOLDER/.zip" (or whatever). This will archive the folder ITSELF and all it's content's, thus leaving you with a folder named "UDATA.ZIP" and the contents (which SHOULD be at this point UDATA/UDATA/4541000d/000000000000... logically speaking). YOU MUST RENAME the newly created "UDATA.ZIP" to "AgentUnder_BONDALL.ZIP"
8.) At this point, you should have a NEWLY CREATED .ZIP folder named "AgentUnder_BONDALL" with it's next sub-folder being "UDATA". (should be, in directory structure, UDATA/451000d/000000000000/.... so on and so forth).
9.) Now, go to your X
:Program Files/Datel/ActionReplay Xbox/Saves folder.
10.) Locate "AgentUnder_BONDALL.ZIP" and either DELETE IT or MOVE IT.
11.) Take OUR NEWLY CREATED .ZIP file "AgentUnder_BONDALL.ZIP" and COPY AND PASTE IT to your "X
:Program Files/Datel/ActionReplay Xbox/Saves" folder.
12.) Load up the ACTION REPLAY SOFTWARE
13.) Highlight and "open" the middle list portion "Agent Under Fire". You should see a file named "BOND:All"
14.) Highlight it and "DRAG AND DROP" it to your ACTION REPLAY MEMORY CARD.
15.) IF it works (which it should) you'll see it pause briefly, then the left hand side "MEMORY CARD" or whatever, will slowly start to turn orange. Once it is done, you are hitting the home stretch.
** IF you get any ERRORS ("Invalid Save Game Data" or whatever) this is due to the way your .ZIP is structured. MAKE SURE you have a .ZIP file that is "AgentUnder_BONDALL.ZIP > UDATA/451000d/000000000000/..." etc etc
16.) Remove ACTION REPLAY MEMORY CARD, insert into YOUR unmodded X-Box controller.
17.) Power ON unmodded X-Box, go to MEMORY, then to MEMORY UNIT (1). Find the "007: Agent Under Fire" game save. Highlight it, and move your cursor to the RIGHT. Select COPY and have it save to your HARD DRIVE. Once this is done, move on. (duh!
18.) Press EJECT and insert "007: Agent Under Fire" ORIGINAL GAME DISC.
19.) At the main menu, select "LOAD MISSION".
20.) Your screen will bug out, and flip colors (black, etc.) The next thing you see should be the EVOX MAIN MENU.
21.) At this point, you can either click on "INSTALL EVOX..." (at the bottom) or FTP into YOUR unmodded X-Box. We will do the rest in Phase 3...
Phase Three: Profit
1.) Now that EVOX is up and running AND you are CURRENTLY FTP'd into your xbox (REMEMBER: your USERNAME/LOGIN is "xbox" and your PASSWORD is "xbox" as a default)... go back to where we had the FOUR/FIVE folders we created.
2.) Once there, go into the Folder we created earlier "Bert_is_Cheating_on_Ernie_-_The_Pheonix_Project".
3.) Notice the THREE MAJOR FILES we'll need: default.xbe , bert.xtf , snuffleupagus.xtf
4.) Now that you know where these files are located, go back to your FTP session with your X-Box.
5.) On the X-Box, go into the C: "drive".
6.) Create a Folder in X-Box's C: "drive" named "backup originals"
6.) Moving on, take note of WHAT FOLDERS are currently present. Namely, look for a folder named "FONTS". If this folder IS
present, see * below. If NOT, then move on to STEP 7.
* If "FONTS" folder is present
, open it up and go into it. Once inside, *CREATE* another FOLDER named "backup xtf". Using either your MOVE ftp command or whatever it is you do, locate and MOVE/COPY&PASTE the files "Xbox.xtf" and "Xbox Book.xtf" into the Folder we just created "backup xtf".
7.) If "FONTS" folder IS NOT
present, create a folder in your X-Box's C: "drive" naming it "backup originals"
8.) Using either your MOVE ftp command or whatever it is you do, locate and MOVE/COPY&PASTE the files "Xbox.xtf" and "Xbox Book.xtf" into the Folder we just created "backup originals".
9.) IF YOU HAVE A FILE in your C: "drive" named "default.xbe", MOVE/COPY&PASTE this into the newly created folder "backup originals" as well on X-Box's C: "drive".
11.) TRANSFER THE FILES "bert.xtf" , "snuffleupagus.xtf" , "default.xbe" from YOUR PC to your X-Box's C: "drive".
12.) IF YOU HAVE A "FONTS" FOLDER
(as in the previous step), ALSO COPY&PASTE (not move entirely like a CUT&PASTE) the files "bert.xtf" and "snuffleupagus.xtf" into "C:FONTS" location.
13.) In any event, now that you have "default.xbe" , "bert.xtf" , "snuffleupagus.xtf" on the X-Box, RENAME
"bert.xtf" to "Xbox Book.xtf" and "snuffleupagus.xtf" to "Xbox.xtf" .
14.) CREATE A FOLDER on X-Box C: "drive" named "SKIN". Place at least ONE ENTIRE EvoX skin in this folder. Otherwise, EvoX will FAIL TO BOOT and you will get "ERROR 21" (thanks Lynxx)
15.) After this is DONE, you are DONE!
16.) Close the FTP connection to the X-Box on your PC, and DONT FORGET TO REMOVE THE MEMORY CARD AND "007: Agent Under Fire" GAME DISC from the X-Box's drive.
17.) REBOOT the X-BOX.
18.) Your X-Box should now BOOT to EvoX!
You are now free to use backups, emulators, and I think even drive F: . However, when I check in the EvoX menu for system info related material, it states all other drives as having "xxx.x.xxx.xx" memory available... yet F: is "0". So this might just be a bug. This will be updated in future tutorials posted right here in this topic!
The "eject inside of the EvoX" (EjectFix) still doesn't work properly... it WILL reboot your X-Box. But never fear! It will just drop you right back into the EvoX main menu again anyhow.
So no big deal... just kind of a pain in the ass. Beats loading 007 every time, though!
If you have questions, please post. If you find an error, please let me know. You now RULE, DUDE!
