General Modding Questions

Well I would say that I am very new to modding on my Xbox 360 so I just have some questions about everything. I keep hearing about this JTAG/RGH Xbox stuff and I don't really know what it is and why I "need to have it" to mod my Skyrim. I have a regular Xbox 360 and I have downloaded two game save mods and they seem to be working perfectly fine so I am wondering what is the point of having that JTAG/RGH Xbox?

I would really appreciate any help on this because I keep seeing amazing things being done with mods and I would love to be able to experience all that I can.

Game saves are not the same as PC mod conversions. You can run gamesave mods on any console.

 

However, you cannot play the converted PC mods that you see around here without a JTAG/RGH, because retail Xbox 360s can only run content that has been digitally signed by Microsoft. A JTAG/RGH has those signature checks disabled, so they can run practically any content if the game accepts it.

Thanks. So where can I find the best place for gamesave mods? Most of the gamesave mods I see are all god mode saves and I am really looking for a sweet houses to live in while still being able to level up. Right now I have the Dovahgolt gamesave and I love it so I am looking for more mods like that, for example I watched a video on a player house called Castle Draco and it looked amazing. Do you think I could find a gamesave mod for that?

To add on to what you said about converting PC mods to Xbox. You will need a program called Xlast (don't ask for link it's illegal to have, just Google it. it's in the Microsoft SDK)

You can find some saves here: http://www.savevault.net/ or just do a quick Google search :)

Yeah this too, but I didn't include that because he said he only has a regular Xbox, so I figured the specifics weren't necessary. If you do end up getting a modded console you can find more details on conversions here.

There aren't a whole lot of places that host gamesaves, but you can find some over at SaveVault, and I know Modio has a built-in gamesave uploader/downloader.

To be honest, I'm not so sure on that one. My knowledge only extends to the basics of PC mod conversions. If I understand it correctly, most gamesave mods are created from PC gamesaves and then converted to console; but I don't think we have a lot of PC Skyrim players/modders here.

There's me. I've never actually played it on console.
