Copy these files to the /.rockbox/xworld/ directory on your player. Any other files found in the archives can be discarded as they are not required.

For copyright reasons, XWorld ships with an alternate set of strings and an alternate font by default. However, XWorld will load a custom string table from "/.rockbox/xworld/xworld.strings" if it is present, and/or a custom font from "/.rockbox/xworld/xworld.font", which you need to create yourself based on data extracted from an original installation of the game.

Please do not ask for data files/copyrighted game resource files on the forums or IRC because it is illegal.

Getting Started

When you first start XWorld, you are presented with the code wheel verification screen. To proceed, use the code wheel supplied with the original packaging and enter the symbols that correspond with the challenge that is given.

Testing XWorld has not been tested on many targets, any some bugs may still exist. Please report any you find.
