I bought some swap disc 10+ years ago that came with a spring loaded kickstand to make the system think the tray was closed. Probably paid $10 for it.....
Isn't it fully emulated on original Xbox?
It is, but I'm trying to get away from emulation, for consoles at least. It must be some kind of psychological thing, but when I throw a bunch of roms on a pc I seldom play them. If I have the physical system I tend to play more. Anyway I should be fine. I got a disc for 10 bucks, which seems to be the going rate. I'll have to dig a spring out of my parts bin or use some tape or something.
Also my xbox is still busted. There's another big yard sale coming up, so if I'm able to go maybe I can pick another up. Honestly the 1 dollar wii was a hell of a deal but I walked away from most of the stuff for fear I wouldn't have room in the house. 4:3 computer lcds for 10 bucks. Tons of ps2/ps3 junk. There was also one of those fancy custom xbox 360's with matching controllers for 50. I hadn't went for years because I thought all the good stuff was gone, but I think now that the consoles are transitioned to a new generation again people are selling games.
I'm working on organizing my systems right now. I'll post pics somewhere once I get things how I like it.
