    Development[edit]

    Cxbx-Reloaded started development as an effort from Luke Usher trying to make the original project, Cxbx, run on modern computers. As soon as this initial goal was met, more development time from himself and other developers[1] enabled many Xbox games to run on PC for the first time (including some exclusive games that weren't released in any other platform[2]).

    System requirements[edit]

    A set of minimum requirements must be met for the emulator to run. As of May 06, 2020, users are required to be running a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or later and have a GPU compatible with Direct3D 9.0c (with Pixel Shader Model 2.x and Vertex Shader Model 3.0).[3]. It's worth note that, while Windows is the most used system to run the emulator, it's also possible to run it on Linux using Wine [4]

    Compatibility[edit]

    The emulator can run many commercial games and homebrews, with their compatibility status and details being covered in the compatibility tracker of the project.[5]. Compatibility is also often detailed in monthly reports, with the latest one (as of May 6, 2020) reporting 307 commercial games reaching gameplay (listed as In-Game or higher), 76 of which capable of being played to 100% completion (listed as Playable).[6]
