Just got home, know nothing but the name, first impression: could have come up with a better name.
Brace yourself; "THE SWITCH IS A TURN-OFF" headlines are coming.

Also look forward to more posts along the lines of "nintendo should release their whole library on android for free they would make 2k monies".  Because there's certainly no reason to stop with those yet.

Newcomer's Board / Re: Ps2/PS1 ROM Hacking
« on: October 15, 2016, 04:12:13 pm »
1/-there's few games on ps1/ps2 like Digimon World 3 ,you can find 3 files = total 36Mb i mean where's the other files???
The Playstation accesses the data stored on the disc by means other than the ISO9660 filesystem.  In other words, it doesn't have to use "files".

2/-every game has his own extensions ......wanna hack Onimusha : Warlords but no idea ,weird extensions
Yes, games can store their data using different methods.

3/- if anyone here is experienced or Advanced on Rom Hacking can you tell me from where i can start pleaaaaaaaaaaase ?

Have you ever found it difficult to be around people in general? I suffer from severe social anxiety, so I have about 3 or 4 people in my life that I consider friends, and generally, both them and me are too busy to talk to each other.
It came as a tremendous shock to me, the first time I was living on my own, away from everyone I knew, while I worked at a profoundly crappy job that might fairly be said to have left me badly traumatized.  I never got along particularly well with the people from school with whom I had spent so much of my life at the time – but it was only then that I realized just how badly I needed them.  And I realized that whatever other qualities I may have, no matter how different I thought I might be, I had to do my darndest not to push people like that away.

Cliché though it may sound, in some ways I miss those times, journeying along with so many others to a vaguely-common goal like graduation and whatever lay beyond.  I've never again been in a community with that kind of unity of purpose, and I probably never will be.

General Discussion / Re: Spoilers for the ending of The Wrath of Khan!

It's been so long since I've seen that film.  But it was definitely one of the better Trek movies, by far.

There was an astonishingly thoughtful series of articles on Entertainment Weekly recently covering all the Trek movies.  May I suggest http://www.ew.com/article/2016/05/06/star-trek-ii-wrath-khan-geekly ?

Love that James Horner score, too.

Also, and I've never heard anyone ask this question before, but how did Khan find time in 2 hours of looking around for the Enterprise to familiarize himself with the activation of a device that has just been prototyped, and has no included instructions, due to Regula 1's memory banks having been wiped before his arrival? What the hell?
As noted, he's supposed to be some kind of genius.  (Although the image of that wacky control panel with the weird rotating cylinders stands out prominently in memory.)

OIC. Thought that was mentioned. Nothing has been published as of yet, and likely won't be for another decade. So citing peer review documents is just not going to happen.
If that's the case, then it hardly seems unreasonable that "the science community refuses to explore it" or that it "ignores the obvious staring us in the face" – which is how we got into all of this back on page 2.  I mean, if nothing else, it's pretty darn difficult to get funding for something which might garner publications ten years from now.

An improvement over the PSX version released seven years ago, apparently.  The readme states that it runs in SSF.

Second, the debates and banter which happen here on RHDN are in fact very unique on the internet in the respect that they tend to be much more intelligent in content, generally.
Where do people get this idea?

You're talking about this patch?

That patch is for the PC88 version.  It might not even be required for the Sharp X1 version.

The last time I heard of Byuu, he'd completely and utterly had it with all of his projects and with coding in general.  Did he change his mind?

I would love nothing more than to be able to freely explore space and time once I'm no longer among the living. I want to know what the inside of Jupiter or a black hole or the dinosaurs looked like. I want it so badly that when I think about it my soul cries inside me.
It's actually probably pretty boring once the novelty wears off.  Jupiter is a dense gas cloud.  It's dark in there.  Speaking of C. S. Lewis, he had some sort of vision of heaven in which one would move forever through successive layers of novelty, each one grander than the last; that sounds like the only kind of thing that would satisfy the human intellect for all of eternity.

The way I see it, in the end, we live on through whatever we leave behind, be it forum posts or the mere ripples of the effects of our actions, spreading forever outward.  And dreams are just random neurons firing off while we're unconscious.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Nintendo DS USB Card Reader - Does this exist?
« on: October 08, 2016, 10:18:49 pm »
I don't care if it can dump or not
A card dumper is precisely what you are describing.  Or at least, no one would bother making such a device that was not a card dumper.  If the existing card dumpers are not sufficiently suited for your needs, then no, the device you are seeking does not exist.

Ok. Anything else?
Well, actually...

It's just so dang easy to get passionate about things one knows nothing about, isn't it?  So very much of the time any incitement of passion is followed by a regression towards the mean, as nuances appear and things turn out to be perfectly ordinary, or the mere accumulation of large quantities of very hard, very boring work.  Why should people be passionate, when it is so very difficult to become properly informed and the cost of holding a strong, uninformed opinion is so very high?

However, the reference made was about the people out there who are never passionate or sensitive about anything.

Really? Ok. (I wonder then what that degree on my wall is all about?)

Sarcasm aside, yes, I am. And when great minds like Prof. Hawking can not explain these observed misbehavior's of the universe using the current model, then how can that model be correct?
Well, surprise, surprise.  Seems to me there's no shortage of people spouting off about "teh sciens is wrongzors it's Gallillillieo all over again Tesla save us" who graduated from the University of Youtube.  But maybe that's not you.

Still, I've got degrees on my wall too, and I'm sure I couldn't make heads or tails of anything Hawking has actually published in the scientific literature lately.  (I couldn't even tell you if he still does that regularly.)  The math just gets crazy nasty.  But again, maybe that's not you.  This is probably not particularly relevant to the thread anyway.

Extra Mario Bros was really good. The original levels are almost the same, but it gives you worlds A-D, and the lost levels effects.
I don't think we're talking about the same thing..?

Extra Mario Bros is the biggie. A staggering piece of work.

As for SMB3, Super Mario 3mix would be the way to go. Mario Adventure is very impressive, but the challenge level is kind of obnoxious.

Superstring theory and multidimensional physics. Thats the answer he was going to give right? It's a branch of science that purports to have an answer and a metric crap ton of math to show how it would work.
Aye, but who needs to understand the math when you can attain the same level of expertise as a wizened PhD with just a few slickly-produced YouTube videos?

Many of the people I know or have crossed paths with have all the passion and sensitivity of a slug.
Maybe you just haven't seen them doing something what they're "passionate and sensitive" about.  One cannot be "passionate and sensitive" all the time – not without getting utterly exhausted.

The thought has crossed my mind: the capacity for being a Total Jerk lives in us all.  We can't just pack all the jerks onto a rocket ship and hurl it into the sun, as true jerkiness comes from within.  (It would probably be nicer to say something about the capacity for goodness, but meh.)

Also, waoowwkoo.

There are 5 major mysteries of the universe.
And yet, none of those things you've listed would conceivably have the slightest impact on anyone's day-to-day life – not at all unlike the vast majority of other "mysteries" pondered at the higher levels of scientific disciplines.

The current model of the universe, based on Einsteinian derivatives, can not explain even one of these points.
Yeah, I'm guessing you're not a physicist.

There is only one theory that accurately and completely explains the points stated. Yet the science community refuses to explore it. Why? Arrogance, pride and ego.
If this is going to turn into "God done did it" then there is no point in furthering the conversation.  How's that for passion and sensitivity?

It is important to state that there is no a lot of hacking left to do in Far East of Eden but the hacker who accomplishes it will get a lot attention from the gaming community.
From the sounds of things, whatever remains of the hacking is monumentally difficult.

And the point of that statement was not about which individual it applies to, but what the larger consequence is.

Sure. You can say it that way, if you want to simplify away any nuance and make things binary. That's how all rules are. It just so happens that the 'taste' of the majority tends to be what the implemented rules are based around, at least in the long run. You, yourself, will have an opinion that slants towards one side or another in any given dilemma, would you not? Ostensibly you have already stated where that slant that is, on this subject.

But the word arbitrary is intended to mean something because that's the nature of language. We can argue about what qualifies into the definition, but I don't see how someone could argue that rhetoric is equal to force, at least not successfully.

This sentiment goes to the topic. Your expectations on this exchange could be called "toxic". The question here would be whose responsibility it is to avoid 'unpleasantness'. The person feeling displeased, having the ultimate power to avoid a voluntary exchange, or a 3rd party blocking all interaction. Only one of those is applying force.
I'm sure you think you're very clever, but I find myself unwilling to expend the energy to wrest the meaning from your linguistic contortions.  Perhaps someone else here would like to have a go.
