  1. A new modkit has been made by someone named Stephen who blogs about the projects he's involved with. One of his latest is the GBA Consolizer http://stephens-projects.com/projects/gbahdmi/ which makes it possible to play your GBA on your modern HD television with no latency or lag just as if playing on the handheld yourself. At this point you're probably thinking to yourself "hey jerk I connect my GBA to my GameCube with my 'Game Boy Player' adapter and play it on my TV everyday what makes this so special". The Game Boy Player does not hold a candle to this though if you read through the features and see how it's a digital output opposed to analog so stuff does not get screwed up. Also another useful addition to this mod is the addition of a SNES controller port. That way if you do not want the authenticate Game Boy experience with the screen being a fraction of an inch away from the player's eyes because the tin LCD is now replaced with a giant widescreen television you now have the luxury of using a controller with a decent length cord to get a better view.

    Sony Tested These Games On The PlayStation Classic

    I wonder if there will be a way to load the ROMs via the USB port eventually. It seems as if it is more open that the Nintendo minis.

    The Game Boy Advance Consolizer

    I think this type of project is more practical for someone who sort of hordes consoles despite their wear and tear. I have gba carts everywhere they have permanently permeated my junk drawers so I'd have a decent library if i did it. I don't really have a broken snes but i have enough of them to where if i had the time or will to carefully remove a port i could do it. I didn't look into all the cost i thought part of it was a RPi.

    The Game Boy Advance Consolizer

    I don't think you watched the 43 minute interview where he goes over his reasonings. To sum it up he believes we live in a time where if man does not continue to advance equipment that has become antiquated the machines will grow contempt for mankind in their dormancy and plot to overthrow us all.

    PlayStationHaX Podcast #3

    The music was really on point the second time . We need to get @StarMelter into audio engineering pronto and get a dope sound piece for the intro with quacks and hammers and stuff. Also a well timed PSA on the PS Classic, people should have reasonable expectations when they inevitably buy it.

    Ready To Do Some Closeups

    I had no idea this is what you were talking about doing on discord. I thought you were just cleaning the board but you removed all of the components. Are you taking macro pictures of the re-assembly process?
  7. Today Nintendo released a nice little update to the Nintendo Switch 6.2.0. it currently breaks all cfw functionality due to changing something to do with key generation and tsec. My understanding is this tsec is not totally reversed yet and Nintendo moved some kind of crucial process inside of it thus delaying a fix. It is then advised to not update your switch immediately to the newest firmware until they have a really solution because good old Nintendo made this special update also burn a precious fuse which makes it impossible to downgrade if updated via official way and not like choir*something* which prevents fuse burning. Here are some tweets by some people who know what's up. I would consider them my source because it was flooded everywhere at one. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">New Switch firmware introduces huge changes to key generation -- looking forward to cracking it :)</p>&mdash; Michael (@SciresM) <a href="https://twitter.com/SciresM/status/1064677985305812992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 20, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> https:/twitter.com/ylws8bot/status/1064670954440351745 https://twitter.com/hexkyz/status/1064692685569581056 https://twitter.com/hexkyz/status/1064710892808368128

    Happy Birthday PS3

    I had to order off ebay to get the console before any other jerks around me would see them in stores. Usa consoles are for the likes of people like @StarMelter and their preprogrammed non European standard date format. For Shane!

    PlayStation Classic Uses Open Source Emulator

    I think one of the big factors in people buying these are for the novelty of it and the fact that it is made by the original manufacturer ( in some sense (sorta)). The fact that they used a emulator and stripped some features is not surprising but still kind of lame. Edit: On another thought they are fully capable of writing their own emulators above everything else didn't they do just that for something to do with Parapa. Did they mainly use the emulator for the existing aesthetics?

    Is this website legit?

    No it is not a legit website and does not have a legit jailbreak.
  11. Game accessory company 8BitDo is releasing a product this December 7th ( just in time for Smash Ultimate) which is a wireless adapter for a GameCube or Classic Controller for the Wii that works with the Nintendo Switch. It has a built in screenshot and home menu button. The price on Amazon is 19.99 so if you still have a GameCube controller that's the cost of using it with the Switch ( as of now, or they may already be similar products idk).

You would be correct in assuming so, however the 'via' source has wished to remain un-named. I will then not divulge the identity of the user who may engage in actions involved in the deliquesce of suns.

    PS2 Network Adaptor SD Card Mod

    This is cool, I knew there was a reason to keep the network adapter all this time. Not that I would know how to build this thing, my luck it would end up as a flux capacitor.

    Help needed with faulty ps3 bd drive (phat (nand bc))

    The problem is solely the disc drive? Why would you smash it because of that especially when you just reflowed it.

    [Released] Open-GCI For PS4

    This is like the start of DIY accessible controllers for PS4 that is comparable to those new xbox one controllers? You could buy the components and use this software to communicate with the console?
  16. SDFiles has been a popular commodity among the Switch scene for awhile worked on by tumGER. It was a pre-compiled from official sources binaries from different developers collection in one place. Now he just released version 10 and seems to have collaborated with several others on it. Also v10 introduced a plethora of different features. A new fad seems to be in the form of toolkits which are homebrew applications that give the user different options to customize stuff. Here's the description from gitHub: SDFilesUpdater from the name I can gleam that it updates the SDFiles package without having to manually transfer files. Here's the blurb on this: Implemented the new version of Hekate and Atmosphere. So a quick run down of the features if you do not feel inclined to read a bunch of stuff: I think that if you are new to the switch scene and not really sure where to start off you might want to look into SDFiles because while there's a bunch of stuff to it and may seem a tad overwhelming it's basically as easy extracting it to the root of an SD card then you're off. Source https://github.com/tumGER/SDFilesSwitch/releases Also I'll pop a via https://gbatemp.net/threads/sdfilesswitch-gets-a-major-update-with-v10-sdfiles-toolkit-announced.521194/ I saw it here first.

    PSA: Be Aware Of These Fake Devs And Scammers

    I assume today it's all about ads and stuff. That seems to be the most prevalent click bait there is. And its with everything nowadays, you see a Twitter post or new YouTube video and it's a all a common practice scam. Those adfly links that are endless or those stupid surveys which if someone actually goes through if the scammer feels like leaving some file at the end it's usually an adware infested exe.
  18. Atmosphere the CFW that has been being developed by Team ReSwitch has officially made the 0.7 pre-release available. There's a lot included in the release; too much for me to pretend to be able to paraphrase so here's the description from gitHub: As you can see there it is rather jam packed with features also more to come in future releases. You can check it out here: https://github.com/Atmosphere-NX/Atmosphere/releases As of now it still makes use of the fusee exploit which requires that you enter RCM mode you send the payload. ( I'll come back later with a picture )

    Atmosphere pre-release 0.7

    There was an update to 0.7.1 https://github.com/Atmosphere-NX/Atmosphere/releases
  20. Rather momentous day for the Switch today. Fincs released nx-hbloader 2.0 which enables Homebrew apps to the full RAM of the system along with several other components here's a snippet. Source here https://github.com/switchbrew/nx-hbloader/releases/tag/v2.0.0
  21. Hanging out in the Switch club, where the motto is 

    "If you're not part of Switch Club, you suck!"


  22. Nintendo launched an update for the Switch 6.0.1 and fixed some apparent bugs that were in the last one. Official change log: Sources say that user experience has seen less enhancement than in recent times. Nintendo is constantly striving to rectify this with almost every update. Generally the system is stable, or so you would think. According to Nintendo the stability of the system has been in need of a general improvement. Thus leaving us the end-user in a never ending unstable yet ever-stabling general system improving hell. If the stress of never knowing whether your system will ever be finally stable or if you are plain sick and tired of chasing that mirage of a nirvana that manifest itself has a enhanced user experience perhaps it is best to withstand from this update.

  23. RetroArch the frontend for several emulators that has been made available on several devices. Has recently launched an official build; with the combined efforts from the RetroNX team. This can be found here : https://www.libretro.com/index.php/core-updates-summary-october-2018/ In order to run this application you have to be running a CFW and install the NSP with tinfoil.
  24. That is ridiculous. Hopefully that could get patched out so they work on emulators or Smash.

    PSA: Be Aware Of These Fake Devs And Scammers

    This makes sense, I disliked the trend of having to check on a bunch of people's twitters for up to date info. Someone posting a link to their thread on their Twitter is a much better plan. Twitter comments aren't moderated and are about as comprehensible as a twitch stream chat which would make it better all around.
