    And trying to fuzz with newer kernels to boot on Alpha kits is probably also not possible I guess ? :D

    Ok let me rephrase :D
    Getting XeDK or Retail kernels to run on Alpha kits is out of question? :D

    And what about fiddling with XEX2 binaries to make them compatible with Alpha kits?

    What is the exact problem anyway ? APIs missing on Alpha kits ?

    Things like the kernel and linker were changed rapidly throughout the Alpha development cycle. I highly doubt we could get an alpha kernel to launch an xex2 app that was linked with a more final kernel and SDK.

    Not to mention that the physical hardware is completely different. XEX2 apps were made to run on a higher clocked triple-core XCPU, not a dual-core G5.

    Oh ok that destroys all hope :(
    Are there any game prototypes available from the Alpha era apart from Full Auto ?

    Publicly, FullAuto is the only one that has been leaked and it doesn't run on the 1529 recovery.

    Edit:
    Okay seems like Power Mac G5 (Early 2005) 2,0 DP is not compatible...

    The wiki states to only look for G5s with 8 RAM slots, not that every G5 has 8 RAM slots. The early-2005 DP 2.0GHz configuration was already confirmed as not compatible.

    The later memory section is assuming that you have one of the compatible G5s.

    Got it, thanks :)

    Why it isn't compatible?

    Btw: LightBlubFun from macrumors did manage to boot a DP 2,7 with xenon.

    Pretty sure it's the one for the original xbox that never got a retail release.

    I've been talking with him and I'm currently looking into it. When I tried with my 2.5GHz DP model it refused to boot. When I swapped a 2.0GHz CPU pair into the machine it ran fine despite the system bus making the CPUs actually run at 2.3GHz. Not entirely sure why the 2.5 configuration wouldn't boot specifically (it booted into OSX so it's not like the cards were dead). I have a new board on the way with the proper system bus speed in order to test further.

    It's a prototype from a short time before it was moved to 360. The demo build hasn't leaked.
