Getting Started

Installing XLink Kai on a Raspberry Pi is a straight forward process with a few requirements:

  • A Pi 1/2/3/4 with Ethernet OR a USB Ethernet adapter
  • ~20MB of disk space
  • An internet connection. A wired network is preferred for stable gameplay. Using a cell phone hotspot is extremely discouraged.
  • A Supported Network Setup. If playing Original Xbox or Xbox 360 games your PC/Laptop/Pi can NOT be fully wireless!

This guide assumes you have already signed up for an XLink account and have completed the registration and consent process.
