Many view humans as the messiah, a symbol of hope, or fantastical creatures, but the Seekers view them as enemies that must be destroyed. In third- and first-person points of view, you'll realize what it means to be truly human as you delve into an intergalactic saga. Advent Rising sets you on an action-packed adventure where you'll develop superhuman powers, wield an arsenal of high-tech weapons, and command a vast array of futuristic vehicles.</overview> </synopsis> what i would love is if someone made a plug in that will ftp into the xbox scan the folders add them as a rom in launchbox let it scrap the data then when complete ask if you like to convert and transfer to xbox the convert will make a folder matching the game scan folder "Advent Rising" add _resources folder and sub folders rename media and put in correct locations and then transfer over the network ps i dont know if its possible but for the perview video i like to use the game trailer that would have been advertisement for the game back in the day rather then game play if that would be possbible plz add it if not i replace the video myself pps also this would save me days of editing data manually im also wanting to share my _resources folders with the xbmc4gamers and xbmc4xbox community for other to enjoy and i will point them back here thanks for at least reading this
