    Homebrew Discussion Egg NS, a Switch emulator for Android devices

    What exactly are the "etc" things you found? I'm not exactly calling BS on this, but code compiled for x86 would in no way resemble code compiled for an Arm processor. Strings are also typically optimized out, unless they are used. A quick look through the video_core code doesn't turn up any...

    Tutorial Setup Compile Environment Windows 10 WSL

    People really need to read through the GPL license. It does not grant you god like control over your software.. in fact it has the opposite effect. Anyone is free to do whatever with the software, as long as they release, or provide a way of obtaining, the source code. The may rename it, charge...

    SNES-CD Boot ROM Discovered (Maybe)

    Real? Yes, Official? No. The UFO and similar devices replaced the cartridge ROM with hardware that could load a ROM from a floppy into internal RAM, that acted as a ROM. The device wasn't something a developer could use to load additional data from a floppy drive. One of the early attempts to...

    PS1/2 Question about DVD Formats for soft modded PS2

    I'm guessing that will launch an ESR format DVD inserted after the system has started. Normally FreeMcBoot will boot directly into an ESR DVD when the PS2 is powered on.

    SNES-CD Boot ROM Discovered (Maybe)

    That's exactly what I was thinking, the Nintendo DS dev kits had twice the normal ram. Byuu was only testing the CD checking routines, so it's possible it only checks the normal amount of ram.

    SNES-CD Boot ROM Discovered (Maybe)

    The SNES CD has 256k of ram, according to Byuu, so they would have had to load in parts of the game. From Byuu's tests, maybe only 128k was planned. http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=13907 I'm guessing the SNES copiers actually had 16, 32, and later 48 megabit of ram in them.

    Gaming SNES VC on New 3DS coming soon.

    What's the odds on pricing? I would say $10, or $8 if Nintendo is feeling really generous, for the more desirable games. No Earthworm Jim?!? F'kin Nintendo... I'm done.... DONE!

    PS1/2 Question about DVD Formats for soft modded PS2

    You probably already know this, but you have to convert the ISO files, with the ESR GUI tool, before burning them to DVD.

    SNES-CD Boot ROM Discovered (Maybe)

    For the SNES, he's probably talking about stuff like the UFO, Super Magicom, or Super Wild Card. With only 256k of ram (based on byuu's research) this wasn't loading up entire roms, but sections of the game at a time, similar to the Sega CD or PC Engine/TurboGrafx CD.

    SNES-CD Boot ROM Discovered (Maybe)

    The SuperFX came from Argonauts Games, not Sony or Philips.

    Hardware How to setup MayFlash Classic Controller Adapter

    Connect the device to a USB port and wait for Windows to install a driver (you are on Windows, right?). Plug in a classic controller or nunchuck controller. Type 'USB game' into the run box, and you will see something like "Set up USB game controllers". Open that and it will show any joysticks...

    SNES-CD Boot ROM Discovered (Maybe)

    It was supposed to be a SNES add-on, so the base system would run on the SNES and pull data from the CD. The SNES uses data ports, so it would appear as normal data to a SNES emulator. The emulator probably ignores data written to the previously unused bits. This is how the PC Engine CD unit...
