    I'm not quite sure. I don't have one. Check out: www.xbox-scene.com www.xemulation.com and if you want the newest issue of 2600 .

    the reason i ask is that i was going to put my xbox in my car then a guy said to try and put a computer and use a emulator to play your xbox games plus ps2 games.

    so thats what im trying to do but if it illegal im not sure i want to do it.
    im going to research some more i guess.





    thanks again guys

    That's the great thing about being a n00b (newb, noob, NEWBIE whatever): everyone starts out as one! Well, for emulation in the car, that might be a little beyond what you may be willing to deal with for XBox. PCs can't pull off XBox stuff too well (crappy HALO port for PC anyone?), mainly thanks to a specialized processor. If you're looking for gaming in the car, you would be better off just sticking the XBox in there, although I personally am terrified of the thought of games in a car. Did a laptop in the car once for my sister, going from Detroit to Arkansas to visit mom. I had the "joy" and "unending pleasure" of listening to Sonic the Hedgehog and Bart vs The Space Mutants the whole 10 hour trip there. Ack.
    Do yourself a favor: leave the games at home, or at least out of your car!

    Damn. I have to go to the store tomorrow now. I missed the 2600. I have every issue since 97.

    I'll check it out. It would be interesting.

    How can it do GPS?
    Via Linux or Windows 2000 and a USB cable (the front ports are actually USB ports). It's nuts what people have gotten running on the X-Box sine it's so PC like.

    As far as I know, there are no Xbox and PS2 Emulators. I could be wrong.
    There's at least two PS2 Emulators for PCs, been a while since I looked, so there may be more than two now. I'm not sure either were running comercial games, or just demos.

    i disagree as you will fond that the xbox is a generic celeron 700 cpu not specialized at all. Though I will agree that a game designed for xbox will usually be crap on the pc and vice versa. I think it would not be too bad to play xbox (look for xmame) games on carpc as my missus like games it means i could quite possibly have a good trip

    Generic 700 Celeron?!? How is that possible? Celerons aren't built for 3D gaming at ALL, let alone for something that would run best on a RISC architecture, even WITH high end video hardware. The 3D instruction set (MMX) and onboard cache (128k) simply aren't enough to produce anything decent for the games that are running. Think about it: if HALO won't even work nicely on a 2ghz AthlonXP with 700+mb memory and Radeon 9600 Pro video card, how could it run BETTER on a Celeron?!?!

    because:

    it's running at 320x200 or whatever resolution, and the graphics set on the xbox is something similar to a geforce 4 ti 4200.

    the chip is actually a 733 mhz celeron.

    and the memory in the xbox is 64 mb of sdram.

    plus, it's running an extremely stripped down version of win2k, so no os bloat. and it's running on a TV, which is much more forgiving than a computer monitor for crappy graphics.

    xBox uses Intel PIII:

    Uhhh... what?! PIII and Celeron are two completely different tracks! Unless of course the monkey is having us on for a chortle or two...

    I would have expected that had it actually used an Intel proc (versus the RISC proc others have favored) it would be using a full Pentium-level unit. I can't imagine that Celeron would have the capability to do anything high-level in graphics. I don't care WHAT resolution it's running in, or what sort of graphics chip it's based on, Celeron simply doesn't have a full MMX instruction set to play with, making it completely useless for gaming. ESPECIALLY one at the 700mhz level, which would make it a stripped-down PII level processor. Even the Celerys of today are nothing more than a PIII-level proc: full MMX, but with only 128k cache - still useless for today's gaming requirements.

    A PIII I can believe. Celeron 700? No way. The latest version of ALECCS is a Celeron 750, and there's no way in hell, even with a GeForce3 Ti200 and 256mb of RAM installed, HALO is even allowed to run.

    Here's the specs as I was given to understand them:

    A borderline PIII/P4 spec proc, RAMBUS memory (which precludes ANY gen2 Celeron with the 800mhz bus requirement, sorry) and GeForce4 Ti-level graphics processing. Not necessarily an NVidia type card, per se, as I understand it changed a couple times due to changing availability, but that's the general level.

    During my time with PCs, I have yet to see a Celeron perform better than expeceted, regardless of how far the other peripherals were taken to compensate. The raw number crunching that poor proc has to do to compensate for lack of cache/MMX instructions is simply too far beyond its capabilities when you talk about 700mhz era chips.

    One last time Frodo: PIII Celeron????
