Disclaimer: It is highly recommended that you create a backup of your TSSM iso. Just in case something in the mod installation process goes wrong.

1. Extract DX Gamecube and/or Xbox zip file to a folder

2. Have TSSM files from an unmodified game extracted to a folder:

  • Dolphin: Right Click a TSSM iso, click Properties, click Filesystem, then Extract Entire Disc and choose a location.
  • Xbox: FTP the files from your Xbox to your PC, or use a supported flash drive or other methods.

3. Copy the files from the DX mod and paste them over the original game's files.

  • In the zip mod file, you can CTRL+A to select all of the files, then Click+Drag these files over the ones from the original game. If asked to overwrite click Yes.

4. Now all you have to do is set up your method of playing:

  • Dolphin: Click Config, Paths, and click Add, then choose the "sys" folder from where you extracted the original disc (folder should have "files" and "sys"). If you want to build the mod as a rom, then check this video out
  • Xbox: Transfer the modded files back to your Xbox, go to the file explorer, and launch default.xbe from your game directory.

You should be all set to go, you will know that it's working if the logo on the title screen says "Community Cut."

Known Issues

  • Game may break when playing off a save file from an unmodified rom or other mod.
