ISOx360 Alpha Release

64


Requirements:
- Mac OS X 10.4 or later
- Intel Processor
- Dual Layer DVD Burner

Installation:

So today I have decided to release the an Alpha Version of ISOx360. You can download it from my projects page.

ISOx360 makes burning XBOX 360 games on your Mac just about as simple as it can get. Simply download ISOx360 and extract the .dmg then open the .dmg and drag ISOx360 to your Applications folder to install. Once installed you can launch ISOx360 and you should be presented with a screen similar to the illustration to the left.

Step 1 – Open the ISO:

When ISOx360 first launches, the Open pane is selected, from here you can click on the Open Button in the lower left hand corner. You’ll be presented with an open dialog, select your ISO and click Open. After a few seconds you will see that the Game Name, File Type, File Size, and Stealth have been updated. If Stealth says Valid, then all is good… go ahead and insert your blank Dual Layer DVD, select your speed, and click on Burn.

Step 2 – Check Verification Details:

If you want you can check the Verification Details by clicking on the Verification Details tab which will give you detailed information in regards to the Game and Stealth. If anything didn’t pass here then you should try to run the ISO through abgx360 and send me feedback from the Debug Tab.

Step 3 – Burn:

Self explanatory, if everything verified and you are ready and eager to play your game, then by all means, don’t hesitate any longer. Go ahead and insert your blank Dual Layer DVD, select your speed and click on Burn.

Step 4 – Feedback:

Probably not the most important step for you, but the most important step for me, I need everyone that decides to use this application to please send me feedback. This helps with bug fixes and future version releases.

I have made the process very simple. Just click on the Debug Tab within ISOx360 and then click the Feedback Button. You can fill out a comment if you want, you can fill in your e-mail if you want. You don’t have to fill in anything if you don’t want to, just click on the send button and ISOx360 will automatically send me its application logs.

NOTE: ISOx360 is no longer support and will no longer be available for download as of 6/21/11. I have developed a new app ISO Burn that will be available on the Mac App Store sometime mid-July. I’ve made a post about ISO Burn here http://chris-fletcher.com/2011/06/20/new-app-from-empoc-media-iso-burn/ click on the link to read more about it. ISO Burn WILL NOT be a replacement for ISOX360 and will not offer any ability to verify XBOX360 disc images. It will however perfectly burn XBOX360 images as well as many others.

I’d like to thank everyone for their support, ISOx360 had a great run at just over 20,000 downloads that I count from this blog alone. I hope that everyone finds ISO Burn just as useful and easy to use as ISOx360.

UPDATE 6/23/2011 – isoBurn has been submitted to the Mac App Store, to read more about it and see some screen shots please visit http://empoc.com/isoburn

    I haven’t updated ISOx360 yet to handle checking for wave 4 games, but you can burn them just fine.

    Chris, this is a stupid question, but what program do you use on OS X to extract the image from a game disc before burning it with ISOx360?

    Vince,

    As far as I know there isn’t yet a native application for OS X to rip Xbox 360 games, you would have to use either Fusion or Parallels to run Windows along with a special DVD drive.

    This works wonderfully, just make sure you use Verbatim disks. I burnt like 5 discs with Memorex media and coastered all of them. First time using Verbatim and it worked! Thanks so much.

    Hi Chris,

    Since burning XBox games on my Mac Book Pro is hard on the drive, I purchased an external LG DVD burner that burns in 2.4 speed. The problem is that ISOx360 does not recognize or “see” the external drive, any external drive. Is this something you can add in an update?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hi Chris,

    It’s a great program, but you shouldn’t implement wave patching and all that stuff.
    That is what abgx is designed for. I would rip all that stealth checking and patching from ISOx360 and make it just what it’s suppose to do, burn your xbox 360 games…

    Ferre,

    I have been thinking the same myself, I may just do that. Thanks for your insight.

    I just wanted to let you know that I tried dragging a game over to your program and it wouldn’t it read it. The file name was “Assassin’s Creed.ISO”. I changed it to be “Assassin’s Creed.iso” and it worked. I didn’t know if you were aware of this, but some may find this helpful. Thank you very much for all of your hard work.
