How do you impersonate an Xbox1 while running on Windows XP?

This involves a few steps:

1) Dxbx converts the XBE (the Xbox1 executable format) to a windows EXE
2) This EXE is statically linked to our Xbox1 kernel-replacement DLL.
3) Our kernel DLL bootstraps the game by setting up a kernel thunk table and patching some library code contained in the executable with patches that solve the differences between Xbox1 and Windows.
4) Once the environment is set up, we call the original entry-point of the executable, effectively launching the game.

Now, hopefully we’ve done enough patching to make this work!
