IMPORTANT!!!

GUYS DO NOT DOWNLOAD / USE this version:

I'm pretty certain the one in the link above is categorized as an "App" (maybe people who downloaded it can confirm)

get this one here:

this ☝️ one is categorized as a "Game" which is important. an App on an Xbox can not use the full power of the hardware, not even close.
so it is important that it's actually a game!
maybe I am wrong, and the first one is actually categorized as a "game", but for me it says "you own this App" instead of "You own this Game"
when I "buy" the version I linked it says "You own this Game"


also, for file transfer, here is an FTP app for transferring files directly from your PC to your Xbox that I also use, which is apparently now also available without whitelisting

BE AWARE WHEN TRANSFERRING OVER MULTIPLE FOLDERS WITH SUBFOLDERS! THIS APP MIGHT SCRAMBLE AROUND THE FILES,
SO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS YOU HAVE TO MANUALLY CREATE THE FOLDER STRUCTURE (NAME EVERY FOLDER 100% CORRECTLY)
AND THEN FOLDER FOR FOLDER COPY OVER THE FILES ONE FOLDER AT A TIME!!!

I am writing this in caps and red because it is important, especially for Dolphin and PCSX2 folders!!!
games will not launch if you didn't put every file in the exact place it needs to be.
this can be a bit annoying to do but you only have to do it once or once every few months at most, so not as bad as it first seems

it is important to do it, I didn't at first and just copied over my whole collection, and all the SNES games for example,
which I have in folders from "0-9" to "Z", were in the "0-9" folder after I bulk copied over everything.
so I had to go in, create the SNES folder, then create each folder for each letter, and then copy over all the games starting with each letter into their corresponding folders.
I now use a USB drive for almost all the ROMS, but this still applies when you copy over your PCSX2 Emulator folder, or your Dolphin folder... or your Dreamcast folder etc.

maybe this is an issue on my end and an issue with the FTP program I use on my PC, but you can test it out and see if the files and subfolders get copied over correctly for you.

For anyone looking for an FTP program to transfer large files, I used this one. https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9NKPZMQ8R1MR

Worked just fine using FileZilla from my laptop.

yeah that's the same I linked above. I have the whitelist version of it and it works fine. but I wrote down some notes above that could be important.
maybe the issue is on my end but I had to help someone on reddit once that had the same issues as I had with it, so everyone who wants to use this read the post above :)

01011001 01011001 Doing Gods work. I tried getting this from discord months ago but ran into issue after issue. Thank you

well thanks, but all I did was google a bit ^^

IbizaPocholo IbizaPocholo maybe you could quote the post I made above about the right link into your OP. just so there is no confusion. I can already see how many will download the "app" version instead of the "game" version and then need to troubleshoot not knowing why the performance is so bad on their end. and also will have to set it up all over again

I actually might make a new thread for this new version tho tbh.
Edit: I made a new thread for this whitelist-free version + basic startup guide: RETROARCH for Xbox One / Series X|S - NO MODDING, NO DEV MODE, NO WHITE-LIST | NeoGAF

Finally scored a Series X on Microsoft's online store! How much of the info in the opening post is outdated now?
