looking for help and advice

Hi everyone. I am a complete beginner to all these sort of things so please bear with me, I have a bartop arcade machine that was built for me by a friend (he is normally very good) and this has worked without an issue until recently. Inside the unit is an original xbox console and I think running hyper spin but could be wrong. recently it has stopped loading any of the games to the point it powers on and then just remains a screen of slight static. I have managed to get into the original xbox menu and all the games appear to still be on the console, is it possible that the programme used to run the emulators has ceased to work and if so how can I retrieve this. any help would be greatly appreciated but please remember I truly am a complete beginner and have very little technical knowledge.

many thanks in advance

Hyperspin is PC or Android

so the chances are the xbox is running CoinOps, or something similar, you can grab xbox front ends from


Then you ftp them over to get it working – however – some people do things differently, my honest advice is , if it was indeed a friend and not some random craigslister or ebayer, I would give them a holler and ask for some help, a simple re-install of the front end is whats needed here ?

Yeah, it's probably running CoinOps.  I have a modded XBOX but not using a front end.  Also the softmod could have gone bad.  Your best bet is to get on a forum like emuxtras or xbox-hq to ask.
