Built on SDL2, also supports virtually all gamepads.

Connect up to 4 controllers at any time, just like a real Xbox.

Networking is supported out of the box.

Connect to other instances of emulator and even real Xboxes, locally or over the Internet.

Breathe new life into your original Series X games by easily scaling up the resolution that games render at.

Despite this console using the same architecture as PCs, it is not any easier to emulate than other consoles as the architecture used is complex and uses undocumented hardware.
