    Exactly. Publicly, they would never do that. Behind close doors though I'm sure a lot of emu devs have peaked at the code. I'm sure they wouldnt want to copy it line by line into the emulator but it still offers a crazy amount of information.

    Were Nintendo products made by a 5 year old? Neverending leaky/quality/security issues...

    the one thing I would really love to see come out is the Rogue Squadron Trilogy that was never released.
    But eh, one can hope.

    Yep. The actual act of writing lines usually only makes up a portion of the time spent coding. There are projects I've done where a single issue has taken 6+ hours to work out, yet the fix only took a minute of "actual work"

    To give an actual example. I was working on an interface for a t-shirt printing company so customers could upload their own designs, and I had issues saving the designs to a server. Turns out I kept hitting file size limits and simply had to allow the server to process bigger file sizes, something which was literally a single line change in a config file to fix.

    Had I been able to see the source code for a similar project I'd have identified and fixed this problem much faster. And there would be no way for anyone to know I copied the same general solution

    Just do the Wii U one already, this is the least loved console for homebrew and yet the most capable in my mind for emulation purposes... leak the Wii U Source code, so that can help understand and develop a cold boot solution and better and more stable hacks. I'm sick of the Wii U not getting as much love as the Wii or Switch when it comes to homebrew.

    Just one thing: we already have the 3ds bootroms, but if the MOTHERF-ING DSI BOOTROM is legit this is going to improve emulation a lot... We don't even need to use the source code inside the emulator itself, just being able to get all the missing keys from this dump would be great!

    Is this mean will we finally get better support about SNES GAMES on old 3ds?

    I would be surprised if anyone could push Snes Emulation further than Bubble2k16.

    As was I, however I do enjoy giving pointless answers (even if actually correct) to such things.

    Other than the obvious security mess reflected on Nintendo - what could be the benefits of such a leak?

    Man, they just can't catch a break, can they? Not that they haven't earned this treatment, though, given what they've done to the fan community, homebrew, and everything else in between over the years!

    This is interesting.

    Time to update the HTTPS module to use newer TLS I guess.
