The laptop I’m using at the moment is old, Alienware 14 P39G that is 5 years old. The power is convinced that it can’t run over 700Mhz unless it’s on battery for some reason, then it’ll jump to 2.3Ghz just fine. Oh well It’s otherwise not bad, just getting old.
Also it’s only using the Intel GPU. I think I need to do a fresh install of the 2018 version of Windows 10 on this thing.
Anyways so CXBX Reloaded can run many xbe’s directly so you don’t need a ROM or dashboard, but it’ll run the dashboard if you have it. It’s really cool though as JSRF did come to Android but it won’t run on any modern versions of Android. As far as I know it never came to PC, but being able to run the X Box version is certainly cool.
Sourcecode & nightly binary builds are currently on github:
I was able to find Jet Set Radio Future (JPN Demo).7z, which I think is a playable demo, although I don’t have any controllers to test it. But it certainly loads up just fine!
Also here is a very poorly captured video of JSRF on CXBX, You can see the laptop struggle on the main power, then able to run at 60fps on battery power…
