    The Gigaleak 3, featuring Pokémon Emerald & Wii Startup Disc

    Untitled.png

    After little more than a month, a new undescribed archive has been uploaded to anonfiles and posted on 4chan, called "emeralds.7z" and having a SHA-1 hash of D27A9CE1455F825C9169D40DCE362C6A9C472F11. It in turn contains multiple archives.

    The contents can be broadly divided in three categories:
    • More CVS repositories of internal-use Wii titles, including retail and developer versions of the infamous Wii Startup Disc
    • The source code for all language versions of Pokémon Emerald, including the long-teased "pokeviewer" map previewer for Windows, and the MIDI files from which the game's soundtrack was converted.
    • Wii archives attributed to ATI (yet having an owner group name of "routefree", suggesting the archive originated from BroadOn), including Verilog files, schematics for NDEV systems and plans for the canned "tako" handheld GameCube on which the "vegas" Wii GPU and coprocessor, better known as Starlet, is derived.

    Despite this being major lekaks, is more like "Mega" rather than "Giga" by the number of things leaked.

    Hopefully, there's more than just Pokemon stuff.

    IDK about anyone else, but I'd love to see the early build of Super Metroid leak out where, when Samus died, it was revealed that she was baring all underneath the suit, and her scream was more orgasmic. I'm not making this up, the devs said as much in an interview somewhere! XD

    They haven't and most likely won't, because the responsible for the leak is already behind bars for different reasons, and they can't do jackshit about the leaks other than cry about it.
    They deserve the leaks tho, for being such assholes to the fanbase.

    lol how should we know. Ask the leaker. But these things often spread out from there.

    Because of
    1) Anonymity for leaks
    2) Harder to track... ?

    Nope (unless by "partially dead" you mean having the Insert Startup Disc wii menu stub installed, lol)

    The gold standards for Wii recovery (Priiloader if installed and working, restoring full nand backup with bootmii as boot2 or hardmod) have been the same for over a decade;

    and even assuming the unlikely-but-possible case of (wii menu only booting to recovery mode, trucha enabled wii menu IOS, modchip or ODE) not only this disc would still be useless for that purpose, but there are better homebrews you can make a bootable DVD of

    And here I was thinking it could install factory IOS's and thus "reset" the machine so to speak to a factory state.
