    Note this requires a modified Original Xbox or homebrew enabled Xbox360. All games will install on Xbox 360 with the newest installer though some will not run. The xISO version works in Xemu!

    If an installer does not work in your softmod, update to Rocky5's v1.1.9 Softmodding Tool. If any specific installer still does not work, download a different one.

    Use the V2 installer files for installing these games on a stock console.

    This is a complete pack of all the arcade games released for the original Xbox. Both xISO and standalone installers options are available for download.. The arcade on the Xbox originally came with the Xbox Live starter kits, standalone Xbox Live Arcade discs, bundled with some games and on various demo discs such as some OXM discs.

    With these downloads you can install all 27 Xbox Live Arcade Game demos, unlock the full versions, and play the Xbox Live Arcade on your Xbox. You do not need an Xbox Live account to do this, all games included work offline.

    This will take up over 35 000 blocks of space (about 550mb) on your E drive.

    Download the Xbox Live Arcade Final package

    Download the Xbox Live Arcade Final xISO

    New installers uploaded! October 18, 2022
    The newest and hopefully final version of the installer does away with CDX and menus entirely. Just unpack the xISO, burn it to a disc and stick it your Xbox or XEmu. Or download the standalone installer, unpack it, FTP it to your Xbox and run.

    No selecting more clunky installer, selecting which keys or games to install. You can select which games to skip installing by deleting the game and associated key from the Games folder prior to running the installer. The first time you run the Xbox Live Arcade Installer it will take a long time to load, between 1 and 5 minutes depending the hard drive or solid state drive installed in your console. The Microsoft Game Studios logo animation may also be laggy on systems with an SSD installed. This is due to the menu starting the game install before the animation finishes. After all games are installed delete the Games folder from inside the installer to save space.

    This package contains the following games:
    Alien Sky - 1587+4 blocks
    AstroPop - 2050+4 blocks
    Atomaders - 1613+4 blocks
    Bankshot Billiards -1162+4 blocks
    Bejeweled - 561+4 blocks
    Bookworm - 1016+4 blocks
    Dangerous Mines - 830+4 blocks
    Dino and Aliens - 950+4 blocks
    Feeding Frenzy - 1268+4 blocks
    Fuzzee Fever - 1812+4 blocks
    Gauntlet - 2316+4 blocks
    Guardian - 2039+4 blocks
    Hamsterball - 2454+4 blocks
    Hardwood Solitaire - 1170+4 blocks
    Joust - 1270+4 blocks
    Marble Blast Gold - 1403+4 blocks
    Ms. Pac-Man - 338 blocks
    Mutant Storm - 872+4 blocks
    Namco Vintage (Pole Position, Dig Dug, & Galaga) - 690+4 blocks
    Orbz - 1625+4 blocks
    Pipeline - 1339+4 blocks
    Ricochet Lost Worlds - 978+4 blocks
    Robotron: 2084 - 1281+4 blocks
    Smash TV - 2110+4 blocks
    Super Collapse II - 290+4 blocks
    Think Tanks - 1289+4 blocks
    Zuma - 1045+4 blocks

    DEPRECATED
    Xbox Live Arcade Installer v2 package is here!

    Download the Xbox Live Arcade Installer v2 package
    This works like any other DLC installer package from the main DLC installers thread.
    - a readme file with some helpful information is now included
    - XBLA launcher crashing back to your dashboard instead of loading should be fixed now
    - key installs added to game demo installs to save time
    - trying to install a demo when that demo is already installed (greyed out in menu) will only install the key
    - new "Fast Mode" to install all games without browsing the menus, requires 52 A or Start button presses to complete
    - smaller download because it's not an xISO
    - I built this in 2011 (without Fast Mode) and thought I released it, but I didn't. SORRY!

    How to install if from the xISO:

    1)
    Download the old Offline Xbox Live Arcade Installers
    2) Either burn to a DVD-R or DVD-RW (Most Xbox's can't read CD-R's) or Extract the iso with Qwix and FTP it to a location on your Xbox where it can be launched from your dashboard.
    (Usually E:\Games or F:\Games)

    Always set your FTP application to binary transfer mode, as ascii transfer can destroy the content or executables making the content causing you to get errors.

    Extra info: How to Burn and ISO with ImgBurn

    3) Launch the arcade installer and select "Launch Arcade" then exit back to the installer

    4) Now find a game you want and install the demo, after you have install the key for the game
    [​IMG]

    5) The key unlocks the full game, it will still say its a free demo on the games picture but as you will find out the game will be the full game

    6) Launch the arcade again and enjoy the games

    7) Enjoy

    I'm cleaning up and building a copy of this installer (final release I hope) with a few new tidbits. If there is anything you want to see changed or fixed, now is the time to tell me.

    Thanks

    I haven't tried them all, but I don't think any of them work with system link sorry.
    Some do have local console multiplayer, but not that many.

    No problems on my end, downloaded over 2MB's before I canceled the download, try using another web browser.

    Nope, you need a Jtag or RGH hacked Xbox 360's with the hacked backwards compatibility update.

    Thanks Harcroft! this installer is amazing works perfect :)

    I like to know if is possible run the games without launcher arcade, directly from UnleashX or XBMC... I made a shortcut for every game to E:TDATA/... where the games are installed. I copied the xbe to F:Games. I launch the games and I only got working 6 o 7 games... :(

    Best regards.

    New smaller (download), easier to use, and faster installer uploaded.
    Retains all the functionality of the original installer with a lot of streamlining.

    I built this around 2011 and thought I had uploaded it. Unfortunately I didn't and it slipped right past me. Sorry!
    Pictures taken with a camera in the first post replaced with screenshots. They should look a lot cleaner now.

    Enjoy!

    Currently working on Xbox 360 RGH (Aurora).

    EDIT: Some games might not work

    Fast install all & Launch Arcade (installer, not content folder one) doesn't work for me, maybe it might for you

    1. Load the installer xbe from aurora file manager
    2. Install each game through the game categories
    3. Add Launch Arcade Xbe from content folder to appropriate folder to show up on aurora dashboard
    4. Load and enjoy

    I specifically listed this as NOT working on 360 at all, so if you got it working in any capacity, congratulations! That's really cool. Thanks for the feedback.

    I was never able to get a homebrew 360 to launch one XBE from inside a CDX menu so the arcade launcher app itself not launching makes sense. I have no idea what's different about the fast mode when emulated on an Xbox 360. It's just a command to run another menu command which launched another menu command once that's completed until all items are installed.

    Finally you could also use FeudalNate's PC Xbox Live content tool to bypass the installer completely. It may save you more time and trouble than the CDX installer is worth.

    New standalone installer and xISO installers now available. They don't use CDX as a menu system or installer anymore so this should increase compatibility with installing these games on Xbox 360, though some games still will just not work on Xbox 360. The xISO also works nicely with XEmu so gamers on PC will have an easier time with getting Xbox Live Arcade working. There is no music, loading screens or other fluff, just Xbox Live Arcade as Microsoft built it.
