games like World of Warcraft, Doom w/Jdoom, Wolf 3d, and other classics.
Though I'll bet that WoW uses too much ram to play on the Xbox.

Dude love the name. lol

Wow could never run on an xbox, thats out of the question. To play old games like doom, warcraft 1 and quake you would use dosbox. The xbox can only play dos games, nothing newer than that.

How do I use the dosx emu? Do I need to copy the games to a roms folder from the computer, put it in a zip file? Does it matter weather it's zipped or rar?

Yes I'm running a computer emulator on my computer because windows XP is too new to play dos games. Thats why you get a dos emulator because has the dos it needs to play the game built in.

Oh ok, but I have never had problems playing dos games on my XP. I guess I'm just going to have to try a few things to see how to get dosx to play my games.
