  1. Cobra Blackfin Leak At Wololo Part 2

    From my understanding this guy found a unique way to emulate a game iso from his computer over wifi to his vita in 2012. Then in time between this and the CObra fin rumors he contacted under them to manufacturer a mass produced thing with Cobra's backing. Then the need fell flat and cobra abandoned the project and burned the dude on his work or severance package. All the while his work is being mocked and then inevitably his situation as well. That kind of sucks but I think that's the risk / reward for the type of individual who does this. He mentions his skill going unappreciated but if praise is what he was looking for he could have opened up a cleverly named gitHub and a Twitter account with a snarky sarcastic persona and the world would have been his in 2012. Hell he wouldn't have even needed to really release anything just a couple screen shots and hashtags with the caption 'working out the kinks'.
  2. It's been awhile since the news made the rounds of the game Golf for NES being installed on every nintendo switch as a means of paying tribute to the original creator of the game and main nintendo head op's recently passing. It was a trick to get it to launch because if you connected the console to the internet you couldn't launch it afterwards by just simply changing the date to the required one. But jam1gamer made this tool that runs on the Switch that will eventually launch it. You need to have a Switch capable of running public exploits so 3.0 and lower and then you have a litany of things to do to get it to run. Anyways this gbatemp user blinkzane made a pretty straight forward guide to setting it all up here https://gbatemp.net/threads/apparently-it-is-possible-to-trick-nes-golf-into-loading-on-your-switch.485956/ I figure since it involves a homemade script to launch the game or emulator for the game it would classify as homebrew. the ChangeSetting.Py script. However the game as well as the glof emulator that runs it is not the homebrew that is the thing that is designed to only run on a certain date.

    Welp this has been my theme for a long time but today I hacked it all off.
  4. [Update] This Is A Test - Do Not be Alarmed

    That's the spirit! I never turned on you Frank I've always been loyal, I made what I could on the side but I never betrayed you. ^^ I may of butchered this one. but it's my favorite because he totally did Frank wrong with the girl.
  5. [Update] This Is A Test - Do Not be Alarmed

    YOu know what you are frank? a hazza that's a pig that don't fly straight and neither do you.
  6. It's never too late for now,

    Hey good to see you back, congrats on new born.
  8. PSA: WiiU FW 5.5.2 released!

    Looks like a new browser exploit is in the works: https://gbatemp.net/threads/new-browser-hack-method-for-wiiu-on-firmware-v5-5-2.480966/
  9. NTRBoot has been released which involves the use of a DS flashcard and magnet that can unlock several useful options for your 3DS. If you have a bricked 3DS this may be able to breathe life back into it. 3DS on non exploitable fw can now be hacked. Apparently works on every 3DS just to get that out there. By the following people (quote of source): Here's a helpful guide to get started https://3ds.guide/ntrboot There are several useful faqs you should probably read on the source via thread : https://gbatemp.net/threads/ntrboot-released.472585/ It seems rather exciting, if you have ever bricked a 3DS and still have it, or updated past exploitable fw. And you get to use a magnet to screw with factory option stuff which is all I need to hear before I hunt down some DS carts.

  10. PSA: WiiU FW 5.5.2 released!

    edit: nvm, i think i misunderstood.
  11. A GBATemp member CTCaer made and released a tool that lets you change your JoyCon color in game. He utilized the joycon work done by ShinyQuagsmire and implemented this. At first I thought the tool changed the LED lights however in game when it shows you your controller it displays it's actual color like blue or red. Now if you got yourself some custom color shell deal and would like to change the in game display of the color joycon you have you can use this thing to do it.

  12. Transparency Regarding Article Removal

    I think the problem stems from having a hosting provider that doesn't feel like putting up with anything. If Sony tells them that a site they are hosting has copyrighted material wtf do they care they'll tell you to take it off before going to bat for anyone.
  13. User OatmealDome at GBAtemp released a program for the wiiu that lets you play TV only games on your WiiPad. By allowing you to swap displays with a click of a button. So games that were previously unplayable with only the wiiupad as they would show a 'look at tv' message are now playable without a television monitor. https://gbatemp.net/threads/swap-drc-for-tv-only-wii-u-games.478026/
  14. Today is has been reported that some Nintendo Switch games have been successfully dumped. They may not be complete cartridge dumps and it comes shortly after this code was released: They games reportedly dumped were Also I am getting the term 'cartridge dumps' from the source thread, I have no idea if it was made clear whether they were cartridges or eShop games. source thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/first-nintendo-switch-cartridge-dumps-released.477954/ Post-script; I lucked out on not posting this before I saw this message: I am not sure how much of step this was, I don't think this necessarily marks a a huge accomplishment. I think the powers at be made this possible via doing other things and some team picked it up and announced these dumps as a by-product. While it is always exciting to see the first game dumps announced, it may not deserve a lot of attention in and of itself. I don't know if this is abundantly obvious however there is no way to play these and who knows where they actually are. Edit: To expose my own ignorance here a bit; the NFO for the game mentioned that it was a cartridge dump. To add to that it also said something about uniqueness and something about being unique. I didn't totally comprehend what that was but not too interested to contemplate it that much.
  15. This is hilarious. I'd like to see that email he sent Sony. "...AND THEN MY NARROW CIRCLE BETRAYED ME, ANYWAYS HERE IS BLUEPRITNTS." Sony: Oh thank you very much sir, we greatly appreciate you telling us about the device you invented to garner piracy of our console.
