(S)NES/Genesis Games on your 360?
« on: October 03, 2008, 03:33:55 pm »
I've found a way that you may be able to play (S)NES/Genesis games on your 360. To use it, so far, you need a Vista Pc set up with a media center extender.

My method so far:
host webserver on localhost with ActiveX that launches a program
redirect to localhost VIA the hosts file
go to a website on the 360 under media center > online media > explore

right now, I have SNES windowed thru dosbox playing, accepting input off the controller.

nice, I am curious if after the Xbox live overhaul in November if it will works with XP too?
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at
