All of us at Arcade Punks really appreciate what the Coinops team put into this project, having been on the forums for many years since the first release, we see many enthusiastic people all who give nothing but 100% to the project in return for no money, very little reward and producing an AMAZING piece of software, so from all of us here to each and every person involved – THANK YOU.

QUESTIONS:

What does it look like in action?
Here is a clip of CoinOPS 8 :

My xbox is not modded can I still play it?
CoinOPS Massive is a huge download and WILL NOT fit on a standard xbox HDD, you will need a bigger HDD (Google it)
or Download Coinops 7 Lite when released. There are 4 versions of CoinOPS each having slightly different content.

How do I mod my xbox?
First off its not hard or expensive, but can be daunting if you are unsure.

NOTE: Coinops Lite will easiest for use on a stock xbox. You can upgrade this later if you wish.

How do I get it on my XBOX?
Simple, GILF…. Erm, I mean GIYF… (Google it for more info) Just use an FTP client, See this great video by Firebird:

Besure to change some of the settings on the FTP client, some people have trouble if they are not changed:
Enable transfer of 0kb files
Simultaneous transfers 1

Why can’t I find some of the game packs?

Due to other peoples GREED…  To be honest people got sick of all the Hit n RunnersMoaners and People who think its there right to have access to packs yet contribute NOTHING. Memebers of the project are not here to serve you… They make game packs because they all learned how… Be thankful for what you have, if it bothers you that much and you cannot find a game pack then make it yourself and share it. Then you might just understand why.

NOTE: There are other methods and services to get this done, just google it.

Can I just upgrade from another version of CoinOPS?
Yes with some you can depending on your version, but that is not what we are covering here, odds are if you have CO7 full then you know how to FTP the
CO8 Standalone package over the top. (Personally I prefer a clean build everytime.)

I have added some games but they do not appear, why not? 

This could be many reasons, but the main reasons are as follows:

You did not scan for new games

You installed Coinops 8 Lite / Gold / Massive and then added games for a system not included. (To fix this install CO8 Standalone over the top)

Many Questions are covered in the READ ME folder.

Whats New in CoinOPS 8?

100s of arcade games now play faster
100s of arcade games have control, graphic and sound updates
New Arcade Games
New Console Games
Added functionality
Dragons Lair & Space Ace are now in HD and enhanced
Amiga is now single discs and no nag screens
Spectrum is updated
Commodore 64 is updated
Killer Instincts are enhanced
Many bugs removed

would not be able have access the to the very best Emulator / Frontend / GUI on xbox.

in to one singe GUI, most of the cores have been optimized.

avant – He is a solid member of forum, without him we would not have many of the packs on backups or on Coinops 
for that matter… He has done more pack work than anyone I know. He has packaged and tested CO6. I am releasing

Pipmick – he is a member Valued member on the forum with his excellent pack work for Amiga and other systems, he 
create game packs with config files, saves and more so you can just pick up and play. He has also made a Config 
Tool that will assist in pack creation and that is well worth a look at.kep an eye out for the PSX work he has 
done also. Pipmick also got Crash Team Racing Working !
