Seeing as how I keep finding myself relying more and more upon trying to find out "how" to softmod/jailbreak systems, I figured make a dedicated homebrew thread for other Anons to refer to if they want to do the same.

I have modded my wii,ps1,ps2,ps3,xbox(original) and my new3dsxl.
I used consolemods.org
A helpful thing i found out myself when softmodding my wii is that if you use a usb adapter(for sd cards and such), you can put a sd card in it and it will function like a usb.
Will Xbone+ homebrew users ever stop paying Bill Gates and the Illuminati 20 Dobsons to unlock a speshul dev mode needed for installing Retroarch that MS can revoke access to on a whim?
That there's no genuine Xbone homebrewing scene with a CFW infrastructure similar to other 8th gen systems is disturbing given the strong scenes the Hueg and 360 had.
Either the Bone's DRM botnet is powered by Heretek enchantments born from Molochian blood sacrifice rituals or fags are too lazy to penetrate hypervisors when an ((( easy ))) way out in the form of shekels exists, though if the latter were true then why haven't Kiketendo and Soyjew offered something similar on their systems?

The obvious reason is money. Better to never sell the game on the offchance it can be done in the future then give it away for free. The easiest emulators to run are generally from the 5th generation (PSX/N64/Saturn) back, which consequently are also full of Nintendo/Sony games. Even considering 6th generation (PS2/Gamecube/Dreamcast/Xbox) games are becoming supported in most chinese emulator boxes, both Sony/Nintendo have an especially large amount of big games from that era.
Microsoft's strategy is to simply become Netflix since it has completely failed in making worthwhile exclusives, so it essentially doesn't give a damn so long as it can ensure the console isn't hacked and people pay for gamepass. Especially good for Microsoft when it can make an extra $20, make the console look more appealing, and protect its hardware all in one.
Nigger just buy an R4, i got one for $10 and it had a 16GB SD card inside already.
Yes actually, the 3DS screen is not exactly twice as big as the DS, so DS and GBA games scale poorly, the DSi XL is guaranteed to have an IPS screen so that's another plus. With the 3DS only the New models can have an IPS screen, you can't tell at a glance which ones have it, and even then there's the scaling issue i already mentioned. Funnily enough the shitty 2DS is the only one that can scale GBA/DS games properly, but it has weaker hardware than a New model, TN screen and it's as uncomfortable to hold as the original GBA.

Actual nightmare to find for a reasonable price. I even sat and refreshed ebay for an entire day once.
Here are some confirmed serial numbers for (guarranteed) 3ds dual ips


Its an actual nightmare to look for serial codes that match. I told you i was refreshing all day for a day. Well i wasnt the only one. There are alot of people trying to get these (probably to resell). I got lucky and bought one that just popped up and said (dual ips) in the title.
Hey guys, just wanted to tell you not to buy a Wii U. I had to get a new Wii because my old one bit the dust and I got a Wii U instead because I thought that with vWii it'd be a straight upgrade. It's not. Wii games that should be compatible with Gamecube controllers just don't detect the things for whatever reason, and it fucking pisses me off.

I think that the oversized A button is actually nice for a few games, and it's also one of the only controllers with a grooved stick. Other than that, having more options like that is generally preferable to having less options.
>Wii games that should be compatible with Gamecube controllers just don't detect the things for whatever reason, and it fucking pisses me off.
Anon, that's been known since day one. In addition, it's pretty much considered a non-issue as every game that uses the GC controller is also compatible with the Classic Controller. I think the sole exception is Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity.

The worst part about upgrading the hard drive on xbox original was that it took a long fucking time to troubleshoot.
First thing i got wrong was the jumper on the hard drive. I didnt understand that shit and got it wrong and that let to error screens. Pretty much everywhere i looked people just said some stupid shit about "checking cables" "unplug cables and plug them back in" vice verca. Which took me a long fucking time because it never worked.
I was ready to give up and just accept my xbox was dead until i somehow thought of the jumper setting. I didnt understand where to put it and such and i had the jumper in the wrong pin. It took me a bit of looking around because faggots cant properly explain what jumper pins and that kind of shit is and how to figure out where to put the damn thing.
The last problem i had was after doing everything, i got another error code. This also took  a long fucking time to find the answer for because once again there was only like 1 fucking post on the entire internet talking about it. I JUST happened to stumble across the post.
It was because the xbox original cable doesnt work for SATA or something like that? Like newer drives or something? I dont fucking know.
But i had to buy a 80-pin UDMA 66/133 cable
fucking finally the thing worked.

Two questions regarding PS3 homebrew:
>If I'm installing games from the USB to the hard drive, does the USB have to be formatted to Fat32?
I'm asking because I cannot copy PKGs bigger than 4 GB to it. I know that I can copy the games from the USB to the hard drive using MultiMan (Cannot get FTP to work), but I want to know if that is also compatible with any other drive format.
>How do I play rips of PS3 ISOs?
There are some games that are either absent from NPS or are lacking the DLC when using those versions as opposed to the physical versions.
>does the USB have to be formatted to Fat32?
As far as I know. I had trouble with some games with a file or two bigger than 4GB so I used FTP for those.

>How do I play rips of PS3 ISOs?
You just copy the files to the HDD and use multiman to open it, then select the disc when it brings you back to the XMB.
Replies: >>199477
>I had trouble with some games with a file or two bigger than 4GB so I used FTP for those.
IIRC there are tools that can split games and then recombine them after you copy them over, but they're probably all made by some macaco in 2011 and only work on XP, so getting some form of FTP working is a must. I recommend webMAN mod.
I do everything over FTP, but if there are tools to split WBFS files for the Wii, there must be PS3 equivalents out there.
And yes, you can just load ISOs through multiman, worked on my machine.

>If I'm installing games from the USB to the hard drive, does the USB have to be formatted to Fat32?
No. FAT32 is only required for installing the CFW. You just need an NTFS USB drive with the full edition of webMAN MOD installed on your PS3. To be able to utilize that NTFS drive you'll need to go into webMAN Setup (located in your webMAN Games folder) and scroll down until you'll find prepISO. Launch it, your PS3 will restart and now you'll be able to find your pkg files in the Blu-Ray and DVD folder inside the webMAN Games folder. You'll also need to place the exdata folder with the RAP files downloaded by NoPayStation in the root of your USB drive so that your CFW can also install them (and they're required because otherwise your installed game will require you to log-in into a PSN account with these games purchased). Only modern CFWs do this, so make sure that you're using the latest (4.90) Evilnat CFW (CEX or PEX), and not some old CFW like ReBug.
Keep in mind that installing games this way is slow as shit (unless you replaced the stock PS3 hard drive with a faster hard drive), so I heavily recommend you take this anon's >>199513 advice.
PKGI requires some config files to be transferred into it's install data on the PS3's hard drive. You can use IRISMAN and my files https://files.catbox.moe/7sbxgh.7z to properly set it up to use NPS. Place them in /dev_hdd0/game/.

Pic related, it's not official but it does exist and I should have known.

Are you suggesting to gut an old computer's SATA connector to weld it onto the PS2 HDD adapter? Why would the SATA PINs be compatible with an IDE board? Even if I were to, buying a SATA plug to convert the board with would cost me as much as selling the PS2 IDE adapter and buying the SATA one instead.
>use an IDE drive
Does anyone here use IDE drives for his PS2? I've got a bunch of old PCs lying around, and optimistically I could find a 40GB drive, but what would it be worth? 40GBs is barely enough for Yakuza 2, the two Sirens and Rogue Galaxy, that's 4 games worth of drive.
<PS2's DVD-ROM read speed is 5.28MB/s
<PS2's HDD read speed with OPL stands at 3MB/s
Games on the HDD are read slower than on DVD, right? It's an acceptable tradeoff if I get to store 6 gorillion .isos though and I assume more fags here have a similar setup.
>the PS2's NIC bus is faster than the HDD one
Has anyone here ever done this, read games through Ethernet on the PS2, or is this some bullshit suggestion no one would follow himself such as installing Gentoo?
I use and IDE HDD for my ps2. I was able to get a 250GB for about 20 bucks and that's enough space for a decent selection. This was like a decade ago though so I couldn't tell you what prices are like now.

>Are you suggesting to gut an old computer's SATA connector to weld it onto the PS2 HDD adapter?
No, faggot, you buy a PCB that has the SATA connector and a conversion chip on it. The IDE connector is on a daughterboard inside the adapter and this is a drop-in replacement. You can get them for like $20 on amazog.
>I've got a bunch of old PCs lying around, and optimistically I could find a 40GB drive, but what would it be worth?
About tree fiddy, or upwards of $20 depending on how much the seller knows about retrocomputing. For a few years office and school computer sales were a goldmine for this sort of thing, but that was a long time ago so  your best bet is garage sales and whatever your country's equivalent of craigslist is.

I've just bought the SATA adaptor off some second hand retailer for less than $20. In fact, I could try to sell the IDE adaptor on the web in the hopes someone fucks up just like I did to recoup losses.
>FMVs will fuck up if the ISO is on the HDD
Is this true? I've been skimming through a few pages and all these stuttering issues relate to faggots using the PS2's USB port to play vidya, not the HDD port. There are plenty of issues regarding loading games through OPL but those seem to be fixed with game specific settings regarding DMA speeds I think.
>NAS for hosting disc images
This would require a crossover netowrk cable I don't own to connect my laptop to the PS2, assuming it will read its secondary HDD. Thing is, I don't want to buy yet another accessory off the web, moreso one that pisses on everything I've ordered up until now. Besides, from what I've seen on the PS2-Home forums SMB is much more faulty regarding games than an HDD. I'm not sure yet but I don't think I've been meme'd on by buying a PS2 PHAT + HDD adapter. None of these have arrived yet so I can't be sure yet.
In any case I've got a cogswap-ready slim PS2 to read burned DVDs with Swap Magic. Problem is the only computer at home that still has a DVD player doesn't seem to burn DVDs well. I don't think the PS2 can read the DVDs either now that I've got to try it.
Someone should make a ODE for the PS2 already.
Honestly I haven't had issues with load times or FMVs with OPL outside of one case of desynched audio I believe. However, I haven't played a large enough selection of games to claim it doesn't happen.

The link in >>206581 uses SMB, all you need to do is keep your games in a shared folder on your PC.
This far, from the several games I've tried, the only game that I have never been able to get to work is Flatout. Every other PS2 game loads without issue, or has an issue that's easily solved with an option applied in OPL.

This fucks. I've already played more vidya than I had played this entire year. For instance I've just beat Katamari Damacy today trying to get a high score on Taurus/Ursa Major is martyrdom; got already filtered by God Hand; got pleasantly surprised by Ape Escape 3 which I believed was going to be significantly worse than 1 it's only slightly worse; ragequitted in Silent Hill 2 after having to look up a guide to find where the fuck was uncle David's room thinking it was just another regular room I could press X to collect a key from surprisingly I figured out dropping the pack of soda in the trash would do something and skimmed through Galdelic Hour to see what the fuck that shit was about, which is what I'll be playing later. I'm thinking of buying a Teamninjabox too while I'm at it, to which I might want to sit down and read that Sleepy Station article one day.
My only complaint is that most games seem to have more slowdown than they should gameplaywise. For once I expected Ape Escape 3 to have a consistent 60FPS throughout yet I rarely reach that framerate in most stages. Settings on OPL don't help either. Does this game naturally slow down on DVD or is worse performance what's to expect from here on?
Dont get a official taiko drum. Just dont bother. Because you NEED to mod it. I tried modding mine aswell. Didnt really change anything.

Oh nice, a modding thread!
I've been slowly working my way through modding my consoles, got a modded PSP (currently dead, need to fix it), a Vita, a Wii, and recently modded a PS3 Super Slim. Still need to get my storage situation sorted out, originally went with a 250gb SSD and ended up having issues with Armored Core V so I'll need to redo everything with a 1tb hdd and start keeping backups (sans PS2 classics files) external. Sucks, but oh well. 
Next on my list after that is sorting out my wii and getting a nice big hard drive for it instead of just loading games off the sd card, I managed to get 4 classic controllers and 4 wiimotes so it's the perfect party console. After that is a PS2 Slim, an Xbox, and an Xbox 360, but I'm not sure when I'll get around to it because I'm saving up cash for more hard drives right now.

I personally have a o2DS and I like how I can play (almost) the entirety of the awesome DS/3DS library and emulate older systems for free (and the console itself is very affordable), but I wonder how the grass is on the other side. One thing I know PS Vita does better is having more weeb stuff.
It literally comes down to whether you want to play Nintendo stuff, NES/SNES/GB/GBA/NDS, (3ds) or Sony stuff, PSX/PSP, (Vita). Both have a large amount of homebrew themes and autistic homebrew communities.
if you already have a 2ds I'd get a vita.

There are a few listings in my area for classic Xbox I no longer know how to name this console, fucking Kikerosoft consoles that fail to boot up.
Did I buy any of them, is the solution an easy fix, perhaps a broken capacitor or something? The other listings with functional consoles ask too much money.
What does the listing say?
If there's a popped capacitor, it may have damaged nearby circuitry as well.

I can't tell how damaged any of these are since I lied about them being anywhere near me to begin with.
Both the 1st and the 3rd one have their controllers' joysticks worn out to the root, but if the capacitors are the ones that deal the big damage and not use then these details are moot. 
Found this on my download folder too. Are capacitors the only thing prone to failure on these systems?

even Xemu isn't in a state where it can reliably emulate. The compatibility list lists games you

No. I know I've been emulating console games on PC and they don't feel right, specially when I can sit down and play them on a CRT TV that's still around.
>If there is a error code or something then you could easily fix it
No way to tell since I can only buy it blindly. Regardless, judging from these ads the ones that aren't working won't display you a screen telling you what's wrong.
>I would recommend you go with the one that hadn't been booted up in a long time
That's the one I should the most wary of. At the very least the other two sellers bothered to check out the console and try to see what's wrong, whereas the third guy simply dismissed it. However, this one comes with two controllers. Whether original Xbox controllers are durable enough to last after having their thumbsticks rubbed out and work I don't know, but if they were I'd be able to replace the thumbsticks and be sitting on two functional controllers to use.
Or perhaps I should not be a stingy nigger and pay 20 more bucks to make sure I have a functional console, I don't know.

Some multiplatform games got more content because exclusivity deals, like Onimusha 1 and Fatal Frame 2, and it wouldn't hurt to play some of its would-have-been exclusives such as Sudeki or Stubbs. Or, if you don't own a Dreamcast, Shenmue II.
Besides, for what's worth, all games that didn't see a PC release played better on the biggest console of that generation. Burnout 3, The Warriors, Darkwatch, The Punisher, XIII, Fatal Frame, Timesplitters, SMB Deluxe, etc.
I know it's not much, but it's not trivial either. At least Ninja Gaiden is a better killer app than anything Nintendo put out on that generation.

I've been sitting on buying an Xbox for some time but finally there's one that has caught my attention. 60 bucks:
>transparent Xbox with inner metal plate removed so the HDD/disc drive can be seen, very pretty and works perfectly, AV/power cords and 2 controllers included as seen in pictures
Surely the removed metal plate isn't something I should be worried about right? The faggot hasn't included images with the console powered on as other sellers have, but if he were lying I can technically call him out later.
>remember when modded Xboxes were through the roof in resale value
I'm still seeing a few Xbox on resale with stupid prices here. For instance, 500 bucks:
>green transparent Xbox with v1.0 motherboard that can output in 720p and is compatible with PAL games, 128MB original Samsung RAM sticks, original Samsung DVD drive and Sunon fan, includes SmartXX USB adapters and modchip and Pico-PSU M3 (???)
What are these worth either way? What's the point? How much more powerful can these consoles be either way? Aren't most games running in 60fps already?

On an unrelated note, can PS1 controllers be repurposed to be used for PS2 games? The original PS2 controllers are flimsy pieces of shit that last nothing, specially when used for games designed around murdering your controller (Katamari Damacy).

Way too much. The only thing you need an original xbox for is playing original xbox games, and once emulation becomes more viable (a reality fast approaching) things like that will quickly become worthless.

Most PS2 games can be played with a Dualshock 1 on a PS2. Some of them won't work though. Not sure if/how a non-dualshock controller will work, but just try it and found out.

I've booted up my PS2 and got my SCPH-110 (those Dualshock controllers they sold with the mini PS1 to clear out PS1 software stock) and tried some games out. Ape Escape 3, Virtual On Marz and Katamari 1 work perfectly out of the gate, but for some reason Silent Hill 2 doesn't work. It's mind boggling for a game whose controls are already mapped to the D-pad and doesn't even use the pressure sensitive buttons on the joysticks (the PSOne controller has these) can't even bother with basic interfunctionality when a game released in 2006 still bothered to do so.

Now a small part of the outer shell isnt connecting but it didnt affect the console in any way so its fine.

Only thing to mod on a Dreamcast is installing an ODE. Technically you don't need to if it's MIL-CD compatible but most games worth playing will require deleting content to squeeze them onto a CD-R if you go that route, like it's 2005 and you're ripping a DVD from Netflix or something. Frankly Dreamcasts are in the same place as gaycubes right now, unless you already have one or can get one for a steal you're probably better off emulating instead of paying $300+ for a console and an ODE.

Saturn is much easier, scrounge up an Action Replay 4M and reflash it with PsuedoSaturn Kai using the swap trick for free burned games support. Checking eGay a Japanese Saturn + Fenrir is about 100 burgers cheaper than a Dreamcast + MODE if you want to go the ODE route. Saturn library better than dekinais like me deserve, but if there's a killer app like Guardian Heroes, Virtual On or Daytona that you really want it could be worth it.

I've made up my mind on the Saturn. Instead of buying an Action Replay, to install a Phantom modchip to bypass the system's copy protection. The chip's only $20, installation's piss easy from what I can tell and you don't need to rely on some plastic made-in-Chian piece of shit manufactured almost 30 years ago to be able to read your CDs. Besides, it's much less expensive than an ODE which would still need a separate PSU to keep up with the higher wattage consumption; plus, the console would benefit from being able to plug in the original shielded cartridge. Finally, I would be able to play, uh, C-Cotton 2, and... Astra Superstars.
Only thing that's left in the air and I haven't bought as of yet is a video cable. The idea was to buy one of these echspenshive RGB cables. Problem is, I remember using composite on a SNES I used to own and the color bleeding and signal loss is negligible. A console that outputs in 240p isn't going to suffer as a 6th gen console that outputs in 480i/480p. For once, I imagine pixels on a Saturn to be as big as twinkies. Pixel art is going to look slightly cleaner but 3D graphics will still be crippled from the internal resolution. What's the point? Should I even bother? Wouldn't a shitty AV cable do the trick? Perhaps I should try to upgrade my PS2, where text's sometimes impossible to read from a distance.
Low resolution is a bitch but I don't think all 3D games on older hardware benefit from higher fidelity. The game you posted looks like mobage-tier shovelware garbage when upscaled for instance.

>Only thing that's left in the air and I haven't bought as of yet is a video cable. The idea was to buy one of these echspenshive RGB cables.
The only requirement is quality cables. RGB is shilled everywhere mostly because it's an easy grift for youtuber scum to sell all this equipment that's useless on US televisions. Good cables (and good AV circuitry on your television and console, but that's usually not under your control) are more important than masturbating to RGB. Any composite cables you find are going to be OEM (and possibly expensive) or garbage. RGB cables at the retro stores are going to be expensive, but they probably won't be garbage, which is why RGB started getting shilled everywhere in the first place. Shop around.
Don't be surprised if you need to recap the console. If you're in the US Console5 sells DIY kits, otherwise use their cap lists and buy the parts yourself on digikey/mouser: https://wiki.console5.com/wiki/Saturn

Pinouts are available if you bother to look. The issue is the custom shell, making sure sync goes to the right places, and making sure the signals are actually shielded properly. Most online shops (unless you shell out for HDRetrovision or similar) skip that last part because it costs money. Unless you already have a good cable and know how to dissect it without compromising the foil shielding etc I suspect it would be cheaper to just get an OEM or (if OEM isn't available for your format) HDRetrovision cable than to make one yourself.

Why? Just replace the SRAM memory where all the save data is stored with an FRAM one, and pay the money for an OEM 4M RAM cartridge that's actually shielded unlike all of these chinese knockoffs.

Sorry fag, I already got grifted. Bought two SCART cables from retrogamingcables.co.uk for 65€. Luckily I'm a yuropoor so most newer televisions I have around have them as well as older, CRTs TVs.
Problem is, even if the signal was objectively better I'm slightly miffed as to how it looks compared to composite. In spite of composite's artifacts, the colors are much deeper/prettier and the image tends to come together much more nicelier. Comparing both outputs, both RGB and composite, TJ&E's ocean looks like diarrhea when thrown in RGB, whereas SoR's title screen loses that high evening 80's jap drama touch to it.

Don't know whether the cables will be shielded properly around each end. Disassembling the SCART end is piss easy since there's a plastic piece that's holding it together, but the mini DIN 10 that goes to the Saturn might imply snapping both the cable and the connector and peeping inside. What am I looking for, exactly?

Oh yeah, you can do that. If you're going to be soldering anyway I guess there's no harm in going with the modchip+FRAM, unless you're going to have enough saves that you actually need a BRAM cart, like Dezaemon or something.
>Bought two SCART cables from retrogamingcables.co.uk for 65€.
>Luckily I'm a yuropoor so most newer televisions I have around have them as well as older, CRTs TVs.
Then it's okay. Note that not every device with SCART actually supports RGB, but most consoles with native SCART should. In the US SCART cables are only useful if you have a VGA monitor and want to frankenstein your consoles to it, if you fell for the OSSC meme and have a SCART switch, or if you fell for the PVM meme.
>Problem is, even if the signal was objectively better I'm slightly miffed as to how it looks compared to composite.
>genesis examples only
Funny how they forgot to add the obnoxious rainbow bars when they ran those screenshots through the Blargg filter; the Genesis/MD is infamous for its video quality. One of the few redeeming qualities of the 32X is you get to use its video out instead. Other consoles don't have this problem. Here's Final Fanta Sea with composite, S-Video, and RGB. Notice how there's barely any improvement in RGB over S-Video, and how composite blurs some of the  checkerboarding smooth but mostly just looks funky.
>Goddamnit, I thought these older consoles didn't use electrolytic capacitors. Let's hope they didn't jizz their pants all over the motherboard.
Solid-state caps were still killing Macs and setting power amps on fire at this point IIRC. With electrolytics of this vintage the issue isn't leakage so much as the electrolyte drying and letting voltage ripple into the rest of the system. If it works today it's probably not in danger, but it may not work 5 years from now without a recap.

things are definetly not going good. The xbox 360 i opened up and thermal pasted seems to be broken now. And then another xbox 360 that just arrived someone had fucking cut the fan wires and several screws were fucked by some dumb faggot that dont know how to screw screws.
You know what. Im just going to buy a xbox 360 and not fucking open it up. I think in total in my lifetime ive destroyed 4 xbox 360. 2 when i was retarded and didnt know what i was doing and 2 now when i knew a little from tutorials on youtube. Im such a fucking retard. I also ordered replacement parts on ebay for the 360 i was thermal pasting. Well now thats a waste of money since its unplayable.
Im just going to go on ebay again. Get myself a 360 and just fucking do nothing with it except play.

When developers develop a game they usually build it for a specific platform. So lets say they developed a game for the xbox 360. Any other hardware you play it on is not going to be the intended way to play it. I just want to play the game on the hardware the developers developed it for and intended for the players to play on.

Has anyone ever modded a PAL PS1 to run at 60hz? Is it doable?
It's come to my attention most interesting games that didn't see a release in America weren't PAL optimized (Hellnight, Gungage, Poy Poy 2, Rapid Reload).
I have a console that's already chipped to accept burned CDs, so I can't see why not making another modification here and there.

I hadn't, but now I have.
There's a modchip (Dual Frequency Oscilator) that apparently autoswitches the frequency depending on the software's region.
However there doesn't seem to be some sort of switch so you can decide what frequency is the game playing on, regardless of the game being played.
I want to be able to play Ape Escape with my shitty dub at 60hz, is this possible? Can I do this on console?

I'd delved into it further and apparently you can patch PAL games to play on an NTSC console and viceversa, but that will carry video size discrepancies.
For instance, PAL games converted to NTSC won't fit the screen, whereas NTSC games patched to PAL will now feature black bars.
I was wondering whether the dual frequency oscilator would solve this, or if I should simply stick to NTSC games whenever available instead of frankensteining European isos to my amusement.

We don't accept global standards. We make them.
1: Power standard differing from North America. Remember that for 20 years, the only way to store TV broadcasts was to record the thing on 24 FPS film, and even after a studio level solution was created it was another 20 years before it reached homes. It was easier to just make TVs work with low power standards for their refresh rate instead of dealing with conversions since the average consumer wasn't going to be getting content from the other side of the ocean anyways.
2: NTSC color programming is very in-elegant internally in an attempt to hack in color to the same bandwith used for black and white broadcasts and let B&W tvs get color program then play it in B&W, and PAL coloring was created to address some of those issues. Again, both were created long before home video was remotely possible. I couldn't tell you why 'anyone' used SECAM though.

The only reason we don't have to deal with this shit today is the change to digital let everyone use a standard that made sense.

And here I thought I would be able to play DoA3 this evening.
To make matters worse, I was in the process of burning game CDs with the only DVD drive I had on any computer at home, and only 2 out of 9 rips came out properly. What the fuck do I do now, when most computers I work with are laptops? Most importantly, I hadn't realized DVD drives had slowly been being removed from newer machines. Should I search for old desktop computers in my parents' hoarding attic? There should be a few that used to run Win XP from back in the day, though I doubt they would boot up in current year by a long shot. If at least the drives were recoverable, what should I do with them? Any creative way to plug them into a laptop's motherbase?
there are USB to SATA adaptors if you wanted to try older drives to do shit with, but the price of USB to DVD drives/burners is around $20-$30, if I was in your position I would just get a USB drive that can burn discs and not bother with digging around for an ancient drive that may or may not work
Replies: >>213265
examine the board carefully, is anything scratched, pierced, scorched, not what it should be?
as for actually playing games on it, softmod it, put a bigger drive in with a IDE to SATA adapter, (MAKE SURE YOU UNLOCK/LOCK THE OLD/NEW DRIVES), and just FTP all the game files to the drive and run them off that.

Dusted off the Xbox again and removed the motherbase. Since I had no idea what to look for I've simply brushed off the capacitors with a little alcohol, then went on to power on the console and somehow have it work properly for 6 entire hours without any hiccups.
I'm still in disbelief, and in all honesty I'm wary of having a ticking time bomb inside the console. At the very least I've finally had a chance to install a new HDD using Chimp without the console dying on me. FTPing files over to the console seems to do the job albeit fairly slowly and the few games I've sent seem to boot up correctly. Only real issue I'm having is the console only displaying 127GBs worth of F: in spite of installing F: to occupy the entire disk. Could the BIOS be outdated hence why it's messing up with me? The Xbox was already hardmodded by the original owner, judging by the Shenmue II game files around 2007. What's the easiest way to update the BIOS was I not able to burn a DVD? Can I send OGXboxInstaller over FTP?
On a side note most fags doing these retarded tutorials on the web seem to advise buying an 80-pin IDE cable instead of the OEM 40-pin one inside the console itself, but I've found zero reason to buy one since the games seem to boot up just fine. I've been staring at my computer screen waiting for 2 whole hours for the games to download from the Internet. Surely there's some site I can download from that supports speeds above 350KB/s out there, but I've found nothing. Either the magnets on archive.org are broken or are not seeded.
>there are USB to SATA adaptors
I haven't looked into it yet but wouldn't a DVD drive require a power supply connection on top of the SATA end? I have one SATA to USB adaptor at home but it seems to be designed for small 2.5" laptop HDDs. Either way, I'm almost positive there's a working desktop with a DVD burner somewhere.
>congrats, you probably killed the via
God I hope not.
>a tutorial page on how to desolder
I don't think I need this.

On a side note, I've been seeing some listings for older Japanese import consoles that claim they've been modified to work with EU power outlets. Thinking about these faggots writing about using PicoPSUs to reduce voltage on the console I didn't know what were they doing here until it dawned on me today: can you replace the PSU on a Japanese console with the European one, did I have a spare? Specifically the Saturn and the Dreamcast. I assume, while more annoying to set up, it would be preferable to a stepdown converter, or perhaps the converter itself may have the console malfunction.

What are your thoughts on MX4SIO? I got a PS2 with an internal mx4sio mod, i don't own a phat nor tried any other loading methods. While it's certainly still more limited than HDD, at least for playing games i think it honestly singlehandedly redeems the Slim PS2s. It's a very just werks method like USB but with better load times, it still seems to have some issues with FMVs and loading in a few games like DMC1, but 95% of what i've tried worked great or just required turning on asynchronous mode in OPL.
And while it doesn't work with POPStarter (mostly due to that not being updated in years, apparently), with some way to load PS1 isos off the memcard slots, maybe it could be a good way to play PS1 games right away without even using POPS or using burned cds on a chipped PS2, since the memory card I/O ports stay active when playing a PS1 game unlike the HDD, Firewire, USB or Ethernet ones.

I've got one of those PHAT-HDD setups and so far I've got no complaints so far, since cinematics can work under the right settings. What's been bugging me is whether some games are underperforming on the console or not, since I've got stupid hiccups on Ape Escape 3 on a hunch it has to do with the slower HDD read times. I might have to try to buy a modchip to see whether there really is a performace difference, but other than that I'm okay with it.
Since I've read the MX4SIO works on memory cards (~1MB/s vs 3MB/s for the HDD vs 4.7MB/s on the lens), have you experience any hiccups on any game you've played? Particularly Ape Escape 3, to draw some comparisons.
Genuinely horrible software. Used to play PS1 games on that emulator, then tried those same games on a hardmodded PS1. Turns out, I was playing the PS1 games on POPStarter at 50% or less the frames I got on the PS1. There were even some sections where I played at 60FPS on a game I assumed was locked at 30FPS.
My recommendation is to get a real PS1 and chip it out. It's not going to cost you any more than 50 bucks at most, considering original PS1s are still dirt cheap.

>Is the hiccup something easily reproducible
Not so much of a hiccup but places in-game where the framerate drops noticeably. For instance, I remember some levels like Mishap Mountains and Formidable Fleet were sub-30fps when you entered them. Either that, or simply check out how frequently does the game play at 60fps, which is immensely rare using an HDD.
>I've been interested in trying it because of the loli anyway
1's the better game even if the devs were such fuckups they left in a fucking moonwalk exploit it takes you 30 minutes to discover. The apes looked much more feral/agressive, and Spike's such a madlad I don't care all that much about the the hebe loli.

ive just been downloading like 10 games but suprisingly its taken me hours.... Not only do you have to download games but you also have to ftp thousands of files. Say a download takes roughly 10 minutes. Then theres another 10 minutes for transferring over ftp. Anyways here are some links i found that i ought to share. Apparently the original xbox has a functioning multiplayer now.
Also found a place to download dlcs from. Not sure if you need the offline dlc installers you get the multiplayer mod... 
I think you still do...
Also saw there was phantasy star online games on the xbox that was XBOX LIVE ONLY. So i guess thats playable now. Cool.
https://archive.ph/tSCTv (multiplayer mod on original xbox)
https://archive.ph/OcGzU (offline dlc downloaders)
xdvdmulleter or extract-iso on github to turn iso files into "hard drive ready" files. It basically just means so you can ftp it to your xbox hard drive and then actually play the games. I dont know. I dont quite get it but i guess disc files are different from hard drive files? Its a little strange but the programs work.
might aswell share where i got my vidya from.
here u go.

In my opinion, you actually have a few systems that are redundant. Your DSi is made redundant by your 3DS, your Xbone is useless unless you want to play 'Crimson Dragon (That's literally the only genuine exclusive on the platform), your PS1 is made redundant by your PS2, and your PSP is made redundant by your Vita (Unless you're ripping PSP games).
>I was thinking about gamecube,wii u
Sell your Wii if you do go that route as it will be redundant at that point. The GC can output a cleaner picture than the Wii with attachments like the Carby, and the Wii U is fully backwards compatible with the Wii (Outside of GC accessories).

It's a lie. If you care about "LCD screen goodness", get an original DS (Lite of Phat, doesn't matter). Otherwise, the 3DS is fully backwards compatible with 'everything' on the DSi, especially with TWiLight Menu++.
>i doubt that considering they're very different consoles.
The PS2 is fully backwards compatible with the PS1 (Games, controllers, memory cards).

The Vita is fully backwards compatible with the PSP, especially with Adrenaline.
>Im not looking to emulate or play some poor port. I want to play on the original hardware. The intended way to play.
Your PS1, PSP, DSi, and Wii are made redundant by later systems (PS2, Vita, 3DS, Wii U) it is the real thing. It's not an emulation nor a port. This is mostly possible because the systems either have the same CPU archtecture or have the earlier system relegated to a SoC.

>Does the CECHA PS3 fat really have "perfect" PS2 backcompat?
Hell no!
PS3 backwards compatibility is a bag of dicks. Despite having the actual PS2 hardware in the first-gen system (So, it is "100% compatible") Sony went full retard when it came to resolution output by requiring that the PS3 interally upscale all sub-480p images (Which means all PS1/PS2 gameplay) to 1080p and then downscaling it to whatever video output you're using. This process introduces 1-3 frames of lag every second, which compounds over time and makes some games practically unplayable after 45 minutes to an hour.

Thought people would like some advise on how to play game backups on their PS3. So, the two most common ways is to either go through MultiMAN: https://consolemods.org/wiki/PS3:MultiMAN
Or WebMAN: https://consolemods.org/wiki/PS3:WebMAN
What you do is that you decide on which device you want to store your PS3 games on. This is important because there are are limitations to each method. The "easiest" method is to store everything on your native PS3 hard drive, but this presents the problem that you're bound by whatever transfer method you're using and the size of the drive. If you want to upgrade the internal drive, here's a guide: https://consolemods.org/wiki/PS3:Upgrading_your_Hard_Drive
If you want to use an external hard drive (Or a flash drive), you have to two options, each with their own issues. The first option is to configure the drive into a FAT32 format. This has the best compatability with the PS3, but it poses the limitation that you cannot have any files that are bigger than 4GB on the drive. Here are most of the solutions to that: https://consolemods.org/wiki/PS3:4GB_Files
With the easier solution being to use WebMAN to load games from an NTFS formated hard drive: https://consolemods.org/wiki/PS3:Using_an_NTFS_External_Hard_Drive
MultiMAN will not load games on a NTFS formatted drive, so all it's good for is file transfers.
However, this poses it's own limitation in that you cannot load jailbroken game rips when using an NTFS drive: https://archive.ph/JFMwC#post-169034
When it comes to PS3 games, there are two formats that you can find/extract them as. The first is the standard ISO format. The second is the "jailbroken" format. What the latter literally boils down to is just an extraction of the disc's contents into a folder. The reason for this format's existence is to work around the FAT32 size limitations (As, the only other method is to split the ISO). Once you figure out which drive (And/or it's file format) you want to use, here is how the folders are structured on the drive: https://github.com/aldostools/webMAN-MOD/wiki/Game-Paths-&-Covers
Outside of that, the only other thing of note is that you'll have to open PrepISO/prepNTFS every time you add/remove a game if you're using an NTFS external hard drive. And you need to unmount the game through MultiMAN/WebMAN when you're done using it.

Hopefully that gives people enough information to get them started and answer basic questions.
Replies: >>224374
You forgot to mention that the NTFS driver is literal dogshit and won't work with some hard drives, even with the USB.CFG file.
Just use ps3netsrv. The PS3 has gigabit LAN and is much faster than the anemic USB 2.0 connection.

If you ever consider buying a fat ps2 then avoid the 30000 models. I didnt know beforehand but fuck. Its really fucking loud. And thats a understatement. It sounds like a jet engine. Even with headphones and even with a considerable distance. It bothered me so much that i researched it (i just googled some shit) and it seems that the 30000 models are simply louder for some reason. So i went ahead and ordered a 50000 model. I wasnt expecting a massive difference or anything. I was simply expecting a little less louder to just make a little more bearable. I started the console and i was like, holy shit! The difference was fucking massive! Its almost fucking dead quiet. I really dont get it. How the fuck the 30000 model was the loudest retro console ive ever owned and yet the 50000 model is probably one of the quietest retro consoles ive owned.
For clarification my 30000 model was 39000 something. I just read the 39 part of it. And my 50000 model was 50004.
I was considering playing devil may cry but it was so fucking demoralizing with the 30000 console and the constant jet engine noise. Im pretty glad i figured this out.

>specially alternate colors no one saw or knew about
By that rule you can make-believe the N64 was a pretty console because of its clear variations, and forget the one everyone had was that pitch black ugly tumor.
The picture I posted there still applies. The Dreamcast was immediately prettier than the PS2, with its shape and white colors; the Gamecube was prettier than the PS2, with its utilitarian, compact look; the model 2 Saturn beat the PS1 on looks alone, as did the 360 against the NogamesStation. In fact, if purchases were decided on casing and looks alone many one-offs consoles would've beat Sony's offerings by large.
The only console that was selling at the time I'll give you was uglier than Sony's was the Xbox, and not by virtue of its size.
The fat PS3 was ugly mostly due to its sheer size and the curvature of the top. It looked like a pregnant piano and you couldn't set anything else on top of it. The perfect PS3 design would be the case shape of the slim with the glossy finish and Spider-Man wordmark from the fat.
Rest of your post is just gay revisionism. the Saturn didn't look like much of anything while the PS1 at least looked vaguely like stereo equipment and has that chunky space-age look a lot of consumer electronics had in the 90s. The N64 looked like a toy because it was a toy. The GC was immediately derided as a purple lunchbox for children because it was designed for Japanese kids to hold onto on the train to see their friends, not to look inoffensive next to the cable box and the VCR where most PS2s lived. The 360 could have looked like a dog turd and people wouldn't have cared because you were either a dudebro and were getting the Halo machine no matter what or your parents waited in line for hours to buy you a Wii.

Yeah, Raspberry Pi. The 5 is up for preorders already, but it's quite a bit more expensive than the 4 (way more powerful, though). The Pis are small (the form factor is literally a credit card) ARM computers that load the OS off of a Micro SD card. USB and HDMI are crammed in there for interfacing, and there's a GPIO array on the board for turbonerds. There are a few preconfigured emulator-focused Linux distros for it as a result. Retropie, Lakka and Recalbox are the most popular, but you can also install a proper distro to use emulators outside of a curated list.

What are you talking about? The 360's design is definitely borrowing the same curves and white tones those old consoles were doing, only the 360 did with more nuance by choosing off-white and metallic undertones and doing that elongated shape, overall looking much more dignified. It's a pretty sleek and recognizable design, unlike all the bleak black boxes M$ followed it with they couldn't market for shit.
>why do people want consoles to look like a building in some scifi flick city?
Are you talking about the PS5? In any case the PS5's an outlier designwise. Boring lifeless black boxes became the norm 3 generations ago, and that's what Sosny had been doing with the PS3 and the PS4.
You can't blame the PS5 for trying to do something different. What you can blame it for is being an ugly piece of shit made by Commiefornians who couldn't adhere to a design document. Instead whoever bought that shit got a TP Link router on bone growth hormones.

PS5 is even bigger than the xboxhueg.

And yet it still overheats because it's got one squirrel cage fan and an aluminum heatsink. Can't wait until the PS5 "pro" actually starts house fires.

$40 gaycube ODE by March. Absolutely godlike. Nothing on it looks hard to source either so it should be available in quantity unlike most other ODEs.

>the molester phenotype
Disappointed, but not surprised. This is something you just have to accept when dealing with Nintendo console modding, the Sony and Microsoft scenes are downright heterosexual by comparison. If it's really a dealbreaker for you PicoBoot and an SD2SP2 with Swiss gets you 80-90% of the way there, this is for if you want the shiniest and most compatible experience possible. If I was setting up a GC for a younger relative I would seriously consider this, for example.

There's already a continuation fork called Suyu:

Is Ryujinx affected by this?
And since Citra is gone what's a good 3DS emulator?
There's been a lot more forks that popped up that I don't know if this one is an actual continuation or not.

Just use the last released version of Citra for now. Next best project would be Panda3DS, but it can barely play 38 titles at the moment.
>Is Ryujinx affected by this?
Nothing yet unless the devs get spooked and drop it. So far DraStic DS was pulled and its source code released, even though the dev said it wasn't related to Yuzu. Also the 3DS homebrew FBI was taken down from Github. Those are the only immediate casualties.
>And since Citra is gone what's a good 3DS emulator?
Citra. There isn't anything else at a remotely comparable level of development.
Im going to RGH mod my 360. Fuck it. I bought all the shit to flash my 360 but due to the limiations of only being able to play disc games and not out of region games im just going to fucking order a soldering pen and some more stuff. Yeah i might lose money but i want to be able to play whatever the fuck i want. I want to be able to play dlc aswell and digital only games. Lets hope i dont fuck up my 360 with my 0 experience with soldering.

You're going to fuck up your 360. Start by recapping the other dozen consoles you've pissed away money on.
Im just not going to bother rgb3 modding my 360. Seems like a massive bother. I might just be able to play disc games when i flash the drive but whatever.
I've thought about it for a bit more and realized that simply buying a rgh modded console of ebay is cheating and i wouldnt be able to live with it. I have to mod it myself and i have to buy a soldering iron and wires... I have to do it. Otherwise whats the point? Its like you are cucked. You are using someone elses modded console. Its not yours. You cucked yourself.
I have now ordered everything. Lets hope i dont fuck this up.... If i somehow successfully do this i might attempt the same with a switch oled.

I still cant believe that i didnt use this piece of shit for months just to use it and update it and 1 day later a jailbreak comes out for it. Its so fucking bizarre.

Holy shit man take your adderall and play some fucking video games.
that literally happened to me, man. I literally have the console years taking dust and i turn that shit on once to jailbreak it, and the first step was "DON'T UPDATE" then a box appears that says "Do you want to update?" And i got dumb and i press yes because i am dumb and i thought i was supposed to update it, man. I had the 8.00 version and now i am stuck with the 9.03 and probably i will not play any game on it anyway, but i like jailbreak consoles, now i have a useless box to use as paperweight. This was some time ago, i don't know if there is a jailbreak for that version now. But i understand your pain.

It might be coming sooner than you think.
