Open source Xbox Live project (update Jan 8 2017)

Postby GoTeamScotch » Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:13 am

Wanted to share this cool piece of news with you all. TheFallen93 revealed that he's made some promising strives towards getting the original Xbox's online capability back up and running! It's by no means finished, but this is exciting news. Here's a small snippet:

I have been working on this on an off for a little over a year now. Collectively I have spent 6 solid months doing reverse engineering and programming to make this happen. [...] There are NO modifications to the dashboard running on the development console, no patching, no bypassing security checks, nothing. All of the code I have written is 100% compatible with the code the console runs, for both devkits and retail consoles. The network code is the same between the two. There are no private keys that are used in the xbox live code, so this will work on completely unmodified retail consoles as well, provided I have the needed keys to decrypt kerberos tickets (hdd key, online key, etc). All of the kerberos and SG replies are authentic, there are no replays, no spoofing data, nothing hacky. This is simply a test of the connection to the xbl server. For a full account sign in there is more work needed for the online services.

I don't know but is this really worth it? Vast majority of multiplayer games support System Link (unlike those modern ones today) and can be linked together using that... Adding system link capability to Xbox One games would make much more sence...

The point of this is to offer an online service that gives you your own username, friends list, and messaging same as how it used to be when the original Xbox had Xbox Live. Keep in mind, this whole concept is ONLY for original Xbox and has nothing to do with Xbox One games. This is a means of letting people play games online on a console where playing online is no longer supported.

Hopefully this project is more popular and easier to use than Xlink kai. Xlink was kind of a pain at times to use.

Xlink Kai still works and it does not depend of the XBMC version.

https://www.teamxlink.co.uk/

You only need a PC running it.

There are more complicated ways to run it, but not necessary: you need a router with DD-wrt runing the Kai engine, and and older XBMC version wich has the Kai front end. This way you dont need a PC.

I saw a post about this, except the person was using OpenWrt. Any detailed information about how to set this up? Personally, I like the idea of not having to run an app on my PC to use XLink Kai.

I forget which XBMC front end Xlink Kai was dropped on but you just need one of those builds , I think it's posted on the threads somewhere , I'll have a look :-)
