Has anyone been banned for playing your own dump (xci) of your own game online?

I figure it might be safer going online with unique header key instead of scene dumps where everyone's going online with the same key.

Don't recall of any one specific report but it's not a good idea. Running XCI's requires running CFW. Running CFW while going online is a risk for a ban. The surest way to play online without a ban is to use emunand while having a clean nand. Play your legit cartridges on system nand, and use all CFW on emunand.

SX OS is not safe to use online even if you never install any nsp or run any xci. People have gotten banned just for running SX OS, going online and idling in the home menu.

Yes, people have been banned and this should not come as a surprise to anyone considering people have been banned for updating their .XCI files in OFW. Just assume anything regarding .XCI files is at risk for a ban. If you want some names, @PatrickD85 and @Darth Meteos come to mind as prime examples

Yep as @Draxzelex mentioned even being a whitehat "pirate" was not a good thing it seems. Own dumps nothing fancy and still got superbanned.

But well im ok with as mentioned before. I also have an ipatched system beside it so ... fun worlds either way. Still wish I could finally move those saves of the superbanned one ... but till this day that is not an option (right?)

    @Psionic Roshambo, The Wii U gamepads are tied to the console's region, so its impossible to find a cheap gamepad that supports your model.

    Unless you modify your system, of course, and remove the region check.

    @Xdqwerty can we discuss chrono trigger
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    @Xdqwerty I like how the game had the middle ages 1000AD, the dark ages 600AD.It was great seeing the post robot apocalypse 2300 like Terminator and enter the matrix. some of mad max and fallout. 2300ad though it could had used more elements instead of just a generic ai uprising. It was a great idea for their judgement day to be 1999 Y2K.

    -great additions if they would have made an expansion or dlc in my opinion would be finding out humans trapped in a matrix -

    a follower having a cyborg character living tissue over metal endoskelleton like terminator, and the synths from fallout
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    4After Zeal fell it would have been good to see more ancient eras. Perhaps Sumeria based in one area, then Egypt based in another area, Greek based in another area, then roman based in another area before the middle ages.---------

    ----between 1000ad and 1999 is a big gap they should have had the age of revolution like the american and French Revolution

    then the cowboyy era in one area of map and the Industrial revolution/age of enlightmentthen a ww1 and ww2 and a cold war era
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    they could have added 75,000 bc like assassins creed. zeal was already establish in 12, 000 bc , soething before the kindom rose
