Say hello to the 3DS Homebrew Channel! (Not mine, this is neimod's work)

EDIT:
In all seriousness, I understand this isn't actually the Homebrew Channel. However, it is undoubtedly the biggest accomplishment in 3DS hacking, so far. This is proof that neimod's RAM setup is working quite nicely. From this picture, you can see that he is able to edit live RAM, which is an invaluable necessity towards the goal of a future Homebrew Channel. With this setup, it makes it much easier to locate system bugs that would otherwise remain hidden. One would also have deep insight into the 3DS's various encryption and decryption algorithms, as they can now be seen as they are running live.

Hmmmm it is posted on Neimod's Flickr.... But the question is... Where did it come from?
It's a modified System Settings icon? How does THIS prove anything?
If this is real then let's see some cold hard proof this is actually PROGRESS.
Until it is proven this is very mysterious and I for one am very SKEPTICAL!

This looks fake, because it just looks like a TEXT EDIT of the System Settings icon.
Because it is literally all I'm seeing, I fail to see how this is PROGRESS of any KIND!
The System Settings icon is right after the Download Play icon, which is what we can clearly see in the picture.
So...... To settle the conflict... LAUNCH the application and tell me it doesn't lead into the System Settings! If it doesn't fair enough but....PROVE IT!

...you can change the order of the icons you know?

But I do agree, I believe neimod managed to change the header information successfully, but that's it. However, we won't know until neimod says something...

Well, Neimod seems to be quite active in the 3DS hacking scene, I mean, he's the one behind RAM simulation boards and RAM dumpers for the 3DS - the way I see it, this has a fair chance of being real... however it's probably a modded channel, not an actual "homebrew channel" just yet. That is, if it's not just late April Fools.

Is anyone else sick of any Nintendo homebrew launcher being called a "homebrew channel", I think at some point even Team Twizzers said this habit was kind of redundant to say the least. Also more trolling the hopes of forum lurkers trying to get closer to pirating everything. :/

  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    there were still some metroid like enemies in the final, like those leeches or what they were
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    either way the story got changed a bit but still, you can progress in singleplayer in not strictly a linear way at some point you can pick a planet to go to first after the initial stuff...and it can be challenging...theres also a bad ending and a good ending with the second final boss fight
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    i like that its more action based and yet allows you more freedom than some of the later metroid games
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I think overall my personal favorites are the original gameboy metroid 2 and metroid hunters, thouh i havent played hunters for about a decade
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but still, what i played was great
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    I also played other ds fps games like the call of duty ds games and goldeneye rogue agent
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    and im also convinced that it uses a heavily modified unreal engine that got changed...you see there was a cancelled nintendo 64 DD port of Unreal (due to N64DD not coming out) that was based on an alpha/beta version of Unreal but re-written almost completely
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    if you change the display mode it has some of the same graphical glitches like Unreal 0.83 had for example and I saw editor screenshots from one of the level designers
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    it looked to me like a heavily changed unreal editor
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    also it had some models for "mover" this and that and that is something Unreal uses for terminology
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I talked to this developer and when I revealed that, he stopped talking
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    mhm
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    probably because the engine got obtained via not a direct route and I suppose they didn't have a direct deal with epic and it was significatnly changed anyways
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but I saw what I saw lol. it seems to be still based on it just like proper metroid prime seems to be based on unreal warfare to some degree, the physics of the water are almost identical and other things
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    even if it became an "additive world" that actually was the default state of things in unreal until they changed it, and its still possible to hack it in any version of the game to not use subtractive model
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    additive world?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so yea i believe the routes point to the cancelled n64dd port of Unreal and whatever deal was left out of that, it was developed by the lemmings guy, DMA, well more like the branch that also developed hired guns(the cancelled ue remake), they got renamed to devils thumb iirc?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    yea...as in the world is additive..its all void and you have to place something in it to start..where subtractive world is filled with mass, with one giant "cube" that is a mass and you have to cut something out of it
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's how making levels for unreal work typically...but until version 0.84 it was additive by default
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    its still all constructive geometry though
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but yea..a lot of people have misconception how it really works with Unreal, they thought it was only subtractive but its not and the fan 227 patch shows that and allows you to choose between the two modes by making "new" map or "new additive" map
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    okay
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    it just does some magic with the bytes and makes it a void by default in one case where you have to add objects into literal void space and subtractive where you cut out shapes as everything is filled up by one giant cube in practice
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so the subtractive model is actually a lie, the true default is additive
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    "haha, its a lie...you live in a tunnel? NO! "
