    XBOX 360 Disc {Do you have it?}

    Hello BG, long time no see!

    I have a small XI archiving project in mind and I would like to find someone who still has an XI Disc and a working 360 plus a little bit of your time (yes, I know you can no longer play the game on a 360 but that shouldn't matter).

    If you're curious, the 360 version of the opening movie is the only one out there in HD, and I would like to be able to extract and preserve it (there are also a few minor differences between that version and the original). Here's hoping that the movie itself was part of the disc's content and not something that was fetched during the initial update.

    Thank you!

    No HD copy was ever circulated?

    Closest thing would be what SE themselves uploaded to YouTube, which is actually the XBOX 360 version of the video, but I was hoping to be able to get my hands on the original one, rather than the recompressed for streaming version of it (and without the hardcoded subtitles).

    Even for extracting the video it may be relevant, since the game doesn't just install/run like most 360 titles - typically what you can do is tell the 360 to copy the full game data off of the disc, then move that to a USB drive, then use a utility to convert that data into an ISO/etc. XI won't even offer to install without talking to XBL, so maybe it'll work maybe not. I do have a working 360 and XI discs though. So I can try other methods later or something.

    I have original discs and a launch day XBox 360, but while the Xbox 360 is still working..... The disc is badly scratched.

    But I did some searching and found the XBox360 opening for you.

    I'm hoping it will be possible through the disc copy option, but I'm definitely not certain it will.

    Thank you. For archiving purposes, though, I would like to get my hands on the original file rather than a YouTube re-compressed one :/

    Wow, I haven't logged in here in a minute.
    Saw this thread on a whim, maybe I can help a little...

    I have the Vana'diel Collection 2008 disc (and a working 360).
    I also believe that I have the Ultimate Edition disc around here somewhere as well.

    I'm installing the 2008 disc at the moment.

    Edit: Unfortunately, I don't think the installed game data contains any of the movie files.
    The disc installs the game files into some archive files at the following path: Partition 3/content/0000000000000000/53510000
    I copied these onto my pc and used Horizon to extract them, the size was about 6.7GB.
    I've 7zipped the files and I'll pm you a link if you're still interested in the rest of the game data.
    Logging into PlayOnline prompted for an update and that completed, so I wonder if the FFXI patch files are still there..
    Nevermind, the update just makes PlayOnline say "Xbox360 service ended, thank you blahblah"

    Thank you sooo much for looking into this, budd!

    I'll take the link and look if I happen to stumble upon the vid data, but if it's not there it will be disappointing. The only other way to get my hands on it I suppose would then be somehow finding a 360 with it installed which would be much more of a challenge.

    No problem.
    It looks like the PlayOnline video may be on the disc, but I can't verify at the moment.
    I have some old hardware I used to do a firmware mod on an older Xbox360, but I don't know if I still have all the pieces to make it work.
    I can look, but it may take a few days. I don't think files on Xbox360 discs were encrypted or packaged up or anything, so if I can view the structure, that's something I can look into.
    I'm not really very hopeful on that, though, since that's super old equipment and I've moved a few times since then.

    With the biggest files in there being 20MB, I doubt that's even the actual Pol Opening?

    Even if it's in there I would guess that Pol's opening is likely to not have been re-rendered for the 360 release and be the exact same (resolution and content wise) that we got on PC. Pol's UI was never scaled after all.

    Right, the file may be on the disc and not the hard disk files that I provided.
    The game disc is still needed to boot up everything, it wouldn't make sense to copy it over if it was fairly large.

    I was able to create an ISO with one of my old DVD drives, and in it there was an OPN.wmv.
    300MB ish and 7:00 in length, so I uploaded that and sent you a link to it.
    Hope that's what you're looking for.

    Oh my! That's precisely what I had been looking for all along. It definitely bests the Youtube rip of it by a long shot.

    Thank you so much, budd! You definitely had the know how that this required and the will to help an internet stranger with it. Probably wouldn't have been able to get that far on my own even if I had a 360 available.

    Off to my next part of my project, finding someone with the ability to transcribe and translate Japanese subtitles.

    Not a problem!
    Glad I could help. You would definitely need some special tools to get the data off modern console game discs, since they aren't easily readable from most PC drives.
    Good luck!

    Wow it was fun to read the progress on this. Congrats Viena for getting what you need and thanks Budd for providing the materials! I made this to celebrate the achievement and to what we are essentially doing
