This years DEFCON badge was a nice idea, still don’t have any kind of tape player tho. I tried baudline & multimon-ng on the flac and looked like the audio has encoded data signals. Didn’t get far into solving it. I also had a lot of fun getting WeeChat to work on my pinebook again after reinstalling Manjaro to the NVMe. Great music & talks to sift through in the torrent, ATM talk easily a highlight for me.
The nintendo gigaleaks is everything I ever wanted as a kid. There is so much cool ROM's and debug data, I've never played through some of the games so I'm doing them some justice with emulators on my pinebook which handled SNES, NES & Gameboys but N64 isn't very playable. snes9x-gtk works best and higan & bsnes-plus both work just with some lag. I could hack around in Yoshi's Island & Zelda for hours. This leak is phenomenonall!
Awesome, playing yos_edit.bin - a debug build of Yoshi's World on the SNES which leaked recently. Use controller 2 to trigger different debugs when loading from different file slots (1 normal 2 cheat mode or 3 complete). Collision detection can be switched off to freely move the character around in levels using UP+L+R and hitting L+R on controller 2 on the world map will complete the game and give you end credits. start+select completes the current level. A,B,X & Y toggle gFX on & off. Love it.
