  1. HAPPY MOTHER FUCKING BIRTHDAY @GregoryRasputin !!!!!!!!!!!!! You remember everyone else on their birthday. Do you really think you would we forget yours?
  2. I am looking for a member of this community that has a NES or Famicom classic. If you have one please contact me. I will explain more after I see if someone owns one. I would just buy one for what I need, but they are still hard to find, and I am not paying $150 for 30 games and an emulator
  3. I just completed this quiz. My Score 100/100 My Time 87 seconds  
  4. yeah he messaged me already saying to let you have it
  5. I can get you a link, or you can have this one. Just pay the shipping
  6. You can have it if you want. I have been looking for someone to give it to for a while now. No one I know has a NES or Famicom classic. Do you live in the states? If so PM me your address
  7. Sorry I didn't realize anyone had replied. I contacted Brook a while back about some samples for review. They sent me a PS4+ fightboard for my stick, the Brook Sniper (mouse and keyboard converter for consoles) and a nincade. The Nincade is a neat little device that lets you use bluetooth controllers such as the dualshock 4 on the NES classic. It does require opening the the NES classic to install it, but it is solderless and the nstall looks pretty easy. The reason I ask is because I would be willing to give it to a community member. Only thing I ask is make a post on how you feel about it. I do not have a NES classic, and it doesn't look like I will ever own one because of the discontinuation and price hike. I wanted to keep it in the community. If you feel uncomfortable with the install I would be willing to do that as well, but you should be fine
  8. The feature I have been wanting the most is finally here.... PS1 Support \o/
  9. People really shouldn't make retail releases of shit like this. There is no good that can come from these other than buying them to intentionally damage other people's property. I have seen these things used on all types of devices. Some survive, and other devices die. As @Lucif3r said above this should do nothing more than pop the fuse on the USB bus, but most devices are so poorly designed that your device dies. I have seen macbooks, consoles, and almost every single phone die to this thing. There are some phones that survived. Yes I understand that making one of these at home is actually fairly simple but I would love to slap the fuck out of the person that thought "hey let's sell these at a profit and watch the chaos while we laugh and count our money." There are some pretty evil tools on the market that do have a legitimate use like penetraition testing tools, and password crackers, etc. This thing? This thing was designed to kill shit... nothing more, nothing less. Some people just want to see the world burn
  10. Yes you read the title correctly. If you are one of the people unlucky enough to have OFW, but lucky enough to be on 4.70 or lower then there is good news for you. There is a method to inject backups into a system backup and restore it with those game backups being playable A few words from the source I used. The original source is in Russian: "So ,here is some news for PlayStation 3 OFW owners, as Russian hackers have released a new method of injecting backups on PS3 4.70 Official Firmware, similar to the hack and information from Kakaroto that lead to injections of various PS3 and PSP backups and tools such as trueAncestor backup Injector (which is used in this method). This new method seems to require a update for the game or it will not work according to limited reports. Also the hack does not require a IDPS which becomes even more useful for OFW user's as there is currently not many ways to obtain an IDPS via software. IDPStealer was one method used by PS3 user's during the first backup injection hack, but Sony patched the tool created by flatz and now this new method has a conversion that is said to not need any hardware or idps." Requirements: Requirements for Converting your Games on PS3 4.70 OFW (Downloads @ bottom of article): The Game (Disc Version) and the Patches.. Converter: GAME_CONVERT.zip Injector: TrueAncestor - The BACKUP Injector Hex Editor: HxD - The Hex Editor is Freeware make_npdata: (Complied version inside GAME_CONVERT) PkgView: (Latest version 1.3 is needed) PART: #1 - Convert PS3 Game / Modify License Open archive GAME_CONVERT.zip any archive and extract packed inside GAME_CONVERT folder at any convenient place, preferably close to the root of the drive (NOT the folder path should be long and contain Cyrillic characters and other signs such as @ & () "/ [\ ]:;! | =,) If you have downloaded the game in an ISO you need to unpack it or mount a virtual drive. Of all the files we need only PS3_GAME folder, copy it to GAME_CONVERT. This also unpack the archive GAME_CONVERT.zip, containing script-BAT and utility make_npdata. As a result, you should get this: We go in and check out there PS3_GAME presence LICDIR folder. If not, then read the following second part. Run CONVERT.BAT, continue to enter the name of our future in the game folder NPEBXXXXX format (where XXXXXany five-digit number), click the interval, waiting ... After the completion of the script, next to the other files will be almost finished with the game folder. It's time to unpack the patch (s). If the patch is not one, then you need to unpack them all and merge into a single folder, from smallest to largest, while agreeing with the replacement. Copy EBOOT.BIN file from the patch to the folder USRDIR our converted games. Editing, if needed, PARAM.SFO. (Change the version of the game, and the firmware on the exact same as in PARAM.SFO patch) Finished the game folder and the folder with the patch throws in "TrueAncestor BACKUP Injector \ game" and create a backup for instructions, please read third part below. Something like this should look ready patch folder and games. PART #2 : (Create/Modify License) Only needed, if one was NOT included in your 'backup'! Creating PS3_GAME \ LICDIR \ LIC.DAT In PS3_GAME create LICDIR folder. Open in LIC.DAT hex-editor on any game, scroll down to 0x800 position until we find the game code (scroll carefully, that would not miss). Once found, we replace it with the code of our game, taken from PARAM.SFO. Vanishes 4 bytes old checksum in the 0x20 position (which indicates the 4th arrow), then select from the beginning exactly 0h900 bytes (number of allocated code is displayed in the bottom of the hex-editor - "Length: 900"), calculate a new CRC-32 as shown by the arrows and write a new check sum in the position 0x20: Save and copy ready LIC.DAT in PS3_GAME \ LICDIR. P.S. --> You can generate LIC.DAT code of PARAM.SFO games via the PS3 LIC.DAT Generator. PART #3: Repack ISO to PKG and Inject Backup to PS3 PS3 OFW RePack (ISO2PKG) Insert the flash drive in the PS3 or an external HDD, formatted in FAT32. Go to "System Settings> Backup Utility" and create a backup copy. To unpack (* .pkg) use PkgView v1.3 To add a game to use the backup TrueAncestor BACKUP Injector v1.70 Drag a folder with numbers "PS3 \ EXPORT \ BACKUP \ 000000000000" in "TrueAncestor_BACKUP_Injector_v1.70 \ backup" folder Folders with the unpacked game move to folder "TrueAncestor_BACKUP_Injector_v1.70 \ game" [NPXX00000] - The game itself [BLXX00000] - Patch DLC (if present) Run injector.exe and Recompiling BACKUP with the game (carry out points "1", "3", "S") Restoring a backup to the PS3 Now this tutorial is pulled from PSX-place as they are the source I pulled this from.

  11. Yes PSN still works on PS3, but some games are starting to shut down their servers
  12. Lately I have been trying to think of other uses for my youtube channel. It is a nice side hobby to have since I do have an audience which I never thought would happen. I remember a long time ago during our ps3hax days that @GregoryRasputindid a product review for the original cronusmax. There are two things I love and that is electronics (tinkering, modding, playing, etc.) and fighting games. I reached out to a company called Brook to see if they would be willing to send me some samples in exchange for an honest review for our community. They agreed. Brook makes controller converters, fightstick PCBs, and other cool gaming electronics. They have USB plug and play converters that allow 3box360/One to PS3/4 and vice versa. They have convereters for the wii u. Most of these converters also have bluetooth so you can use your favorite controller on your console of choice over wireless. They sent me 3 products to review. The first one I am doing a review of is the PS3/4 Fightboard with audio. This is a fightstick PCB. Fightsticks can be very expensive. Some games allow the use of PS3 fightsticks on the PS4, but you are stuck in legacy mode with an 8 minute timeout. After 8 minutes you have to power cycle that peripheral. That can be annoying, especially if you are in the middle of a match. With this PCB, (and their converters) the 8 minutes timeout is gone. Your devices is read as a native PS3/4/PC fightstick depending on what you are playing on. My fightstick stock This was originally a PS3 stick. I love my stick. It had the LEDs stock and I can easily change that art (actually waiting on a new print ) With the work I have on the internals this controller is kind of expensive. Why should I have to spend $100-$300 on a new stick? Well I don't have to spend that much. The Fightboard with sound This is the replacement PCB they sent me. It is a little longer than a credit card. It has support for a 20 pin header (stock on newer premium fightsticks) as well as screw terminals for solderless installation of your buttons and stick. This board also comes with a daughter board for USB and the 3.5mm jack. Now I do not have a problem with this board. There are covers you could put over it and it would really nice on some cases. I chose to keep my USB port as mine was designed to be an actual port on my stick. They included the cable so I could do that. The board itself has a very visible pinout on each point so soldering to an existing USB assembly was easy. My Install: Excuse the wire mess. That is 32 wires coming off the buttons alone. A nice wire harness will make that look much nicer (making that this weekend) As you can see I kept that daughter board as mentioned above. I plan on using a small aux cable, hiding that small board and the aux cable inside the side panel, drilling a small hole on the bottom of the left panel, and gluing that aux port in the hole so it will sit flush with the case and look professional. My install was much harder than most people's install will be. Like I said above, I wanted to keep my stock USB port, and I wanted to keep my lights and the light switch working. In many cases this board will install without the need for soldering for most people. So How well does it work? I love this thing Before I had a ps3 stick with direct input. The main systems I play on now recognize this stick as a native peripheral. No 8 minute timeout on the ps4, chat works on the ps4, ps3 works grea, and it is x-input on pc so playing games like Killer Instinct is not a problem. The board detects what it is plugged into an just works. With the old PCB I had a slight input delay I was never really aware of. After installing this I noticed that doign combos in Ultra Street Fighter 4 was much easier. I was able to hit my links much easier. That game can be very tight on timing (within 1 frame) So not only does this give me what I need for PS4 and PS3, but it is also perfect for my PC. No more input mappers, less input delay, and not hard to install. For anyone that has a fightstick that they would like to work on the PS4, I do highly recommend this as this is a great fightstick PCB, and it sure beats taking apart padhacking a dualshock 4 (google that nightmare, and even then you still don't have x-input) There are many features my video was able to show off. There is the ability to setup turbo, hook a ps4 touchpad up, emulate the ps4 touchpad with a button and stick movement as well as add a switch to switch between d-pad, and the right and left analog sticks. My stick was fairly basic, but this PCB includes the needed features if you are upgrading a current gen stick (it is nice having X-input on a ps4 stick without using an input mapper, or software. Even many of the Premium PS4 sticks did not have native x-input for the longest time which made playing Killer Instinct, or Street Fighter 5 season 1 more difficult than it needed to be) I would like to thank the people at Brook for sending me some samples. I feel as though these are relevant in our community since we cover gaming and modding. Sony has been known to put out updates that blocks certain USB devices. I know with their products if Sony does attempt to block them, they always have a firmware out within 24 hours (usually within the first 12) This board is completely tournament legal, and their converters are also tournament legal. The cronusmax that Greg had reviewed years before is not tournament legal and has been known to damage USB ports I also did a video review: Brook has sent me a total of 3 products to do an honest review on. This is the first of the 3 products. The next one is called the Sniper. It is a mouse and keyboard converter for consoles. It also happens to be a controller/fightstick converter. It works on XBox360/One and PS3/4. I am workign on editing the footage and will do a review on that soon. The third product I have may require some community help, but I will explain more on that soon. Thank you guys for reading and watching. This is my first ever product review. I like to thank Brook for being kind enough to send some samples. All they wanted in exchange was a review, and spread the word a little. These opinions in this review are mine, and mine alone. This review is not affiliated with PlaystationHax. This review was not paid for. Again they were kind enough to send samples just so I could review them for our community.
  13. I just completed this quiz. My Score 71/100 My Time 71 seconds  
  14. VPKmirror started off doing this then it just sort of died. It no longer gets updated. Glad to see there are alternatives
  15. I have been noticing a lot of sellers of raspberry pi carts on social media. I have a problem with most of these sellers because they are selling at an extremely inflated price, and basically charging for roms. I liked the idea of using a raspberry pi zero, but I wanted something with a bit more power under the hood. Not only are the carts I am selling more powerful, but I am charging half the price in many cases (I do not load with illegal content, and I am sure as fuck not charging for roms like some of these crooked ass sellers.) This is not a sale thread. I do not plan on using this site as a way of advertising/selling these but I did want to show off my work. Instead of using a raspberry pi zero I went with an android tv stick instead. Going with an android TV stick did make it a little more difficult to fit everything inside of the cartridge. To keep everything flush with the end of the cartridge I had to use HDMI male instead. In the next picture don't mind how it looks lopsided as I hadn't yet closed the cartridge [ Now I like the raspberry pi zero and I like retro pi, but with these I have a quad core, 2 gig of ram, a full kodi install, and some games run a little better (N64, PS1)
  16. I do package one of those controllers with each bundle. I haven't done extensive stress testing but so far they seem to be working ok. I keep the insides of the cartridges as I can always put them in an empty shell later on and just print a new label. I could buy empty cartridges, but I just went to my local game store and grabbed a few cheap $2 cartridges. I grab duck hunt whenever I can find it because that game actually has the famicom to NES converter built inside the cartridge Once I get a better printer I will start doing custom labels. They do not take long to assemble and they didn't require many tools. I think I spent more time configuring the software the way I want it than I did assembling them. A razor blade, a pair of pliers, a dremel (I could have done it without the dremel, but it made life easy) and the screwdriver for game cartridge security bits.
  17. yup. Legion is one of the most powerful mutants in the marvel universe. He is up there with professor X and phoenix
  18. I started watching it about a week ago. Only watched 3 episodes so far. The thing is most people do not know this is a X-Men Spinoff. Legion is actually the son of Charles Xavier https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legion_(Marvel_Comics)
  19. True 4k gaming..... yet it still takes a beast PC to get true 4k gaming. They did mention that only first party titles would have to be 4k. Now I am seeing shit about it is able to capture 4k 60 FPS footage.... now I call bullshit. So this thing can render 4k and also capture 4k 60FPS.... LMFAO. At this rate we are looking at one expensive ass console for a niche market. This will be worse than launch PS3s as far as the price point is concerned
  20. I have been wanting to start covering wii u tutorials for a while. I have been waiting on a new gamepad motherboard and it finally arrived. It only took 2 damn months (thanks China) This tutorial covers installing a wii u CFW to your system nand, having it autoboot, as well as installing the hombrew launcher to your system menu (so you no longer have to use the web exploit) There are other methods such as rednand and mocha, but this is the easiest method. Mocha has its purpose, but for the average end user this method is good enough Prerequisites: 1:) A wii u on System software version 5.5.1 (this is the current version and I doubt we will see anymore updates to the system from Nintendo since the switch is out and the wii u is dead 2.) SD Card (I recommend at least a 16 gig SD card) 3.) A LEGIT (NOT PIRATED) DS Virtual console game from the eshop. It will be used as a sacrifice Cheapest one I found on the US eshop was Brain Age. I am told it is free for people that had their account before June of 2014 but I cannot confirm this. Any legitimate DS game will do but you will not be able to play it. INSTALL THIS TO SYSTEM MEMORY!!!! DO NOT INSTALL TO USB!!!! DO NOT MOVE IT TO USB STORAGE!!!! As usual I put together a starter pack for you of the things you will: https://mega.nz/#!lQJj2DAQ!D-4lXpYUFoYvmFo2ERJxvO4of1Ejs8O1dC1kOEvuD58 Now this tutorial is in video format. It is not hard to do but a rough written copy is included under this video 1.)Buy and download a DS virtual console game (NO YOU CAN'T JUST PIRATE ONE YOU CHEAP BASTARDS) Buy a game you have no interest in playing, because you will not be able to play it. Do not try to download and install a pirated copy of this game after you use it for the CFW install as you will overwrite your original and brick 2.)Create a new folder, name it "Hax" (or whatever really), and move your virtual console game into that folder. This game will be a sacrifice to the wii u modding gods 3.) (OPTIONAL) Go into connection settings and set your DNS to This will block any future updates, but also blocks the eshop. In my video I didn't bother because I doubt we will ever see another update for it from Nintendo 4.) Download my starter pack linked above. 5.) Extract the starter pack using an archive manager, move the contents to the root of your SD card, reinsert the SD card into the wii u 6.) got to loadiine.ovh, highlight hombrew launcher, and press select (you should now boot into the homebrew launcher. If it hangs power down your wii u, and try this step again 7.) From the homebrew launch choose haxchi and follow the instructions. Once successfully installed you should be returned to the home menu 8.) From the home menu click the newly created haxchi install. It will be located where you placed your original DS game. This will take you back to the homebrew launcher. 9.) Once in HBL, you want to choose CBHC installer. Follow the on screen instructions 10.) Once installed power down your system. 11.) Power it back on and you will now see the new CHBC menu. Go down to autoboot, and press a to change it from disabled to System menu. Once that is done go back and choose boot system menu. 12.) You will now be at the system menu with autoboot enabled. 13.) You want to run the web exploit one more time to get back to the homebrew launcher. Go to loadiine.ovh, select homebrew launcher, and press select. 14.) From here you want to load WUP installer 15.) From inside WUPinstaller you should see it says install/HBL. You want to press right so that there is a star beside it. Once there is a star you want to press a to install. Just follow the on screen instructions 16.) You should now have HBL as an item on your system menu. Enjoy your signature patched, region patched Wii U CFW with no need to use the web exploit again. There is some other information. DO NOT EVER DELETE THAT DS GAME EVER!!!! DO NOT DELETE THE ACCOUNT YOU USED TO BUY THAT GAME!!! Your machine will be bricked if you do. There is a way to revert to stock so you can safely delete it. Information on CHBC: https://gbatemp.net/threads/cbhc-v1-6-coldboot-haxchi-cfw.452615/
  21. Not right now. It really isn't worth the upgrade yet. Let them iron out the launch bugs. Wii U version of BotW is fine and the wii u is moddable, while the switch isn't right now. A few games you will be seeing on the switch are currently available on wii u
  22. Today is the release of the Nintendo Switch. Today is also the day we see the wii u officially die. With the release of Breath of the Wild we are seeing the last wii u title. The wii u can be considered a failure, but there are still reasons to consider getting one. Both wii mode and wii u mode are now open. We are able to run a library of wii homebrew as well as homebrew made specifically for the wii u. On open platform is always a good thing, and since it is now dead and buried, we can assume Nintendo is not going to update the system or try and stop us (they gave up a while ago) With a modded wii mode you have access to many emulators, wii backup loaders, as well as the ability to play gamecube games. With a modded wii u menu you also have access to homebrew, emulators, wii u backups, and modded games that were never available on the market (such as Newer Super Mario U) So what does this mean for us? It means that the wii u is a system capable of playing any nintendo game with the exception of switch and 3ds games. A lot of the games you are going to see on the switch over the course of the next few months are going to be re-releases of wii u titles (such as Breath of the wild and Mario Kart 8) Even if the switch does get modded (and the modders are all over it already) I doubt we will ever see stable gamecube support as current arm builds of dolphin are a bit slow. The system does have a few gems even though the library isn't great, and third party support was horrible Price could be a problem (for now), but with the system being on it's deathbed, we can assume the system will also fall significantly in price. Personally I prefer one system in my entertainment stand opposed to 5 with a few handhelds thrown in the mix Nintendo may think the wii u is dead, but to me there is still plenty of life left as far as communities like ours are concerned. I have seen some amazing work by the community such as making the gamecube adapter work outside of Smash, modified games, features added that were neglected by Nintendo themselves. Nintendo themselves has done a shit job with their virtual console, and I doubt the switch will improve upon those terrible practices If you can find one cheap I would grab one. I like to consider it Nintendo's version of the dreamcast.
  23. I was wondering why I had 2 of them error out on me
  24. I just completed this quiz. My Score 0/100 My Time 13 seconds  
  25. when I tried taking it the sire gave me an error
