Chat on Discord.


We welcome contributions, large and small.

If you want to do some coding, be sure to read the Developer notes.

IMPORTANT: Pull-Requests containing code derived from XQEMU will not be approved until an agreement is reached to make work mutually beneficial. This includes updates to existing XQEMU derived code. We should not/will not become a hostile fork.

Please contact us before you start working on something, so we can make sure your work is going to be accepted once finished.

Main Prerequisites

  1. Git for Windows
  2. CMake
    • Some IDEs already have CMake support, this is optional.

Fetching the code

  1. Run the following command in the command line:
    git clone --recurse-submodules
    • Please note the --recurse-submodules parameter. This is required to fetch submodules.
      • If Cxbx-Reloaded was checked out without submodules, they can be updated/fetched with the following command:

        git submodule update --init --recursive



Don't open CMakeLists.txt from Visual Studio, as it won't generate files in the build directory.

  1. Visual Studio 2017 or later
Generate Visual Studio files
  1. If you don't have CMake installed, open ___ Native Tools Command Prompt for VS 20##.
  2. cd to the Cxbx-Reloaded directory.
  3. Run these commands.
    1. mkdir build & cd build
    2. cmake .. -G "generator" -A Win32
      • Generators:
        • Visual Studio 17 2022
        • Visual Studio 16 2019
          • VS2019 16.1 or later is required and has CMake 3.14 bundled.
        • Visual Studio 15 2017
  4. Open Cxbx-Reloaded.sln from the build directory.
  5. Select the Release configuration, then click Build.
    • Debug builds are significantly slower, and only for developers.

Special Thanks

  • All contributors to the original Cxbx and Dxbx projects. Without them Cxbx-Reloaded would not exist at all.
  • XQEMU - While the majority of Cxbx-R is our own work (Kernel, HLE, etc), the NV2A LLE and NVNet implementation are primarily the work of the XQEMU developers.
  • XboxDev - Providing Xbox hardware research & useful tooling.
