    SX Installer supports a bunch of install sources. FTP, SD, USB, NUT, etc.
    It also supports one called 'CDN'

    There is no documentation for this source anywhere.
    The changelogs do not mention it
    The only people using this source type are Stargate.
    It appears to support authentication, allowing the source to be 'bound' to a specific system on the server end of the 'CDN' service.

    It serves NO OTHER PURPOSE than to enable Stargate. No one else uses it, there is no way for others to use it as it is not documented. And the functionality was added before Stargate announced their existence, but not by much. @blawar is enabling commercial piracy. When he took SX money, that was bad enough. When he took SX's Stargate money, that's too far over the line for us to tolerate as a community.

    This is rather concerning, do you think you could post screenshots showing this information?

    Why would an installer have CDN on it, without a CDN server to install from?

End of little rant
     
  6. Not everyone is shady dude,people that are shady usually were raised by shitty parents.Some people actually have morals in this world and those are the types that you want to keep around.

    I'm not seeing how @blawar is at any fault here. He created a program that just happens to have an install source named "CDN" (allegedly, of course as I have not seen proof of this to verify myself). The only thing I can tell is wrong here is that he is being blamed with something that may or may not be true before any real facts come out.

    Regardless of these accusations, assuming that it is true, if he designed a program that a company likes, he has every right to accept payment for his work. If he refused to offer his program, the company would just find somebody else. This means that at least blawar is getting some form of compensation for his work while not changing the outcome of the main situation which is stargate.

    He created a program that supports a source type that is completely undocumented and used exclusively by Stargate. It was created for Stargate. Only Stargate has the capability to use it, the other component needed to use it (the backend server stuff). This is factual and easy to verify.

    Umm, no. Stargate isn't a company, it's part of a criminal enterprise. Blawar created functionality solely for piracy-for-profit. That is disgusting and criminal.

    I'm also suspicious of the group that go by the name of Team Xecuter. I think they might be supporting piracy. This is really concerning.

    Hah. Same group, of course. But the Stargate brand goes beyond that; straight up accepting money in exchange for pirated games.

    @blawar, do you have anything to say? Is there some other use for the CDN functionality that I am not aware of? Any documentation on how to use it, or are you just writing software for criminal piracy-for-pay syndicates?

    Been busy the last couple days so haven't been able to go deep into this.
    @blawar do you know why Stargate is using CDN?
    You're once again the only dev to support it, making me more curious of your involvement

    StargateNX is a paid Switch application to download games to your Switch. However the payment does not go to Nintendo or the game developer's.

    And this thread seem to be a 21th century variant of a pyre to burn the presumed programming witch without a trial.

    Blawar solds it's code months ago to team xecuter. Of course it's going to be used for things like stargate nx. Who cares?

    Also, get off your high horse. This community is enabling piracy and payed privacy products since the age of dawn. What's the difference with a paid subscription compared to the SX line?
    Let him be. He's not spamming anything about this service on Gbatemp or is he?

    Speaking of Stargate, the site is in maintenance at the moment.

    Anyhow, I don’t care who is and why someone is involved. SX Installer is still a buggy mess. Today I upgraded to latest version and also installed the trial version of stargate and it for whatever reason can’t access SD and USB anymore. There is an issue where no progress bar is dispayed when attempting to install something that is still not fixed.

    I made it because I'm sick of seeing him, a dev, attacking other devs, and being an overall dick head.
    What paid piracy has been recommended here? What are you talking about? Flash carts? Give me your example. I guarantee it's not the same as StarshitNX.

    That's another yikes. Hope everyone soon realizes blawar is just a shitty human being.
