    In recent times, we've seen quite a number of major leaks in regards to video game content. Joining the leaks for The Last of Us Part II's story cutscenes, and the source code for both Pokemon Gold and Silver and Team Fortress 2 is a collection of Nintendo-related content. Supposedly, RouteFree, the company behind Nintendo's iQue Chinese division, and BroadOn, a company that assisted Nintendo with the development of the Wii, were recently hacked, leading to a source obtaining various files from them, including source code and betas.

    Included in the files was information about how Nintendo created the Wii itself, demos for games that they used to test the Nintendo 64 during development, the full source code for the Nintendo Wii's IOS, a handful of pictures and documents about Nintendo's plans during the years of 2004-2006, the iQue GameCube SDK, and much more. Certain users have already begun uploading videos of some of these leaked demos running on emulators or official hardware. Just as with the other leaks, you cannot link to the content or distribute it, as those files contain copyrighted content.

    Really hope this helps developers tweak their emulators for the Switch :yayswitch: and maybe lead to some unfinished projects 2tb worth of sorts of stuff

    Just be careful as I've heard there are **** posts going around e.g. fake files.

    Issue would be doing so legally, I don't know if they'd get away with e.g. clean room REing like with the IBM PC BIOS.

    I'm guessing they'd (officially) want to avoid anything to do with these leaks.

    I'm guessing this will help emulation, but no developers will legally be allowed to admit that they used any of this information

    Not really.
    You'd risk inputting certain code that might look similar to Nintendo's code.

    You will see a ton of knock off hardware
    That’s only if they release their projects but I’m sure it will help for testing purposes :wink:

    As much as this sounds interesting, i don't get what fool is keeping important files on online machine.
    it should be on offline drive on a machine disconnected physically from network entirely. I dont care how good the security is, as long as theirs a risk of something important being hacked, don't hide it in plain sight lol.

    by the way...if someone more technical would please explain to me, what does this actually mean for us if someone actually has the original source codes?

    I'm so curious to see how Nintendo will react about this,
    and what will they do exactly...
