Unfinished information

Savegame notes

There's no database or anything for savegames - the directory-listing APIs are used to enumerate all savegames. The data is obviously in E:/UDATA/. Each XBE has a subdirectory for it's title-id. Then each save is a subdirectory (I'm not sure about the name; but it's some 48-bit hex value).

XAPI would normally initialize title-images before `main()` of the XBE. The data is copied from sections "$$XTIMAGE" (TitleImage.xbx) and "$XSIMAGE" (saveimage.xbx in savegame folder). I believe the saveimage can differ for different save-games, which implies that they probably have another API. I'm also not sure where it would put saveimages, because no savegame exists then. The images are XPR, and could theoretically be any format supported by the GPU. The dashboard expects them to be swizzled (checks on load imply this), but linear textures might still work.

Metadata is stored in TitleMeta.xbx and SaveMeta.xbx (in savegame folder). I'm not sure when / how they are initialized. I'm not sure if they are already shown in the dashboard, even if metadata is missing.

Metadata are INI files, which are implicitly prefixed with `[default]`. I don't think there's any comments allowed. I believe that XAPI has a hardcoded emitter. Whereas the dashboard has some INI parser. I'm not sure about the parser in XAPI (or if it even has one).

I believe metadata also supports keys without values.

When reading, it will try to read a localized version first, before reading from the `[default]` section. I have looked at many savegames, but had never seen this. I'm not sure if this was ever used.

I believe the metadata files can be ASCII or Unicode (using [Unicode BOM prefix](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte_order_mark))

Titledata in E:/TDATA is similar. The user soundtrack / music collection is using a database file. See Soundtracks.

TitleMeta.xbx locales

Put this into a file and move it to "E:/UDATA/13371337/TitleMeta.xbx" and check which languages your MS dashboard supports. I have dumped the locales from a list in xboxdash.xbe in dashboard version 1.00.5960.01 from Germany. I've then tried all languages that my Xbox dashboard supported in NTSC mode.

THPS2X Syslink crash

Happens if too many servers are present (this is where data is written to driver?):

Hardware watchpoint 1: *(int*)0xD004D048

Old value = 1065353216
New value = 1500647462
0x00215adf in ?? ()
(gdb) pint $eip
Undefined command: "pint".  Try "help".
(gdb) print $eip
$1 = (void (*)()) 0x215adf

And this seems to copy server to database (this in particular copied string?):
