The procedure for adding games, packs or 'R' updates is much the same as the initial install.
Follow the procedure in the Installation section within this help file until you have successfully gained FTP access to your xbox console.
locate the game pack you wish to add or upgrade you wish to apply, and allow the transfer to Overwrite older files in the appropriate directory if necessary.
Updates are presented as 'r#' or 'revision?' followed by a number e.g. r1, r2, r3 etc.
If you have applied an update, Coinops will Automatically update any settings and Rescan your games.
If you have simply added some games or a pack you will need to Rescan manually as described in the User Settings section.
NOTE - You do NOT need to add all the 'rx' updates in order, simply use the most recent as all the patches/fixes are included in each release.
you may also 'step back' to any previous update you wish by overwriting in the same manner.

ADDING AN XBOX GAME
All xbox games require 'Shortcut Pointers' and must be located in the root folder of CoinOPS
All Folder names must be Identical to the XBOX Pointer Name (XBOX_Gamename)
1. Locate Game on XBOX Hard Drive ex. Xbox_Black Folder is located in my F: Drive
2. Open Xbe Shortcut Maker 1.0 (Included in your CoinOPS folder)
3. (Target Path) - F:\games\XBOX_Black\default.xbe
4. (Title Name) - Enter Folder Name (ex. XBOX_Black)
5. Click Create Shortcut
6. Save File as The Same Name as Pointer Name (ex. XBOX_Black)
IMPORTANT NOTE - you must reopen Xbe Shortcut Maker each time you create a shortcut.
a bug in this software prevents you from creating more than one working shortcut.
Name the folder the same as the pointer for this to work,
So if the XBOX game is "Black", the pointer will be "XBOX_Black"
then the Folder it Should be pointing to should be also called "XBOX_Black"
So the Shortcut would be pointing to something like "F:/Games/XBOX_Black/default.xbe"
The shortcut must be located in the root folder of CoinOPS, eg CoinOPS/XBOX_Black.xbe or it wont launch
Failure to follow this guide exactly may also result in issues when trying to Reboot
(It is recommended that you first delete the entire CoinOPS directory from your xbox if you wish to upgrade from a previous version i.e. CoinOPS 4 to CoinOPS 5 or 6 to prevent conflicts and ensure there are no redundant files)
When Updating to the latest rx version you simply need the most recent release (all the previous rx updates are combined into the latest number)
