  1. Hi, there is no Dsi forum so I hope you don't mind me posting here. Pirating DSi games and actually being able to install them on your DSi is impossible. You have to have a legitimate copy of it. I found no other website I could post these on so I'm using dark umbra. So I ripped all the ones I have off my dsi I was lucky to have a bunch of games though. There is no possible way for me to add more games unless somebody sends me more games so then I'll add it to the list. If you want to install these games then go to [Hidden Content] and follow the steps. You can ignore the parts about getting the 00000000.app and downloading the template and getting the tmd file because they're already set up so you would be wasting your time trying. Ok so I'm asking you. Any of you. To send me your games so I can add them to the list. I'll have a list of credits of who contributed and I'll put you in there. Extraction Method A: If you don't know how to extract these dsi games then I'll tell you how. If you already have a hacked dsi and you can boot up into TWLnf to install dsiware then great! if not... Then follow this guide [Hidden Content] up until the point until it asks you to create a NAND backup. Once you have created the nand backup you can just close out of the application by holding down the power button. There should be a file called nand.bin on your sd card. If you don't want to go through anymore process of extracting then just upload the file to some file service like MEGA or Mediafire and put the link in the comments then I'll extract it myself and add the games to the list. Extraction Method A Continued: If you want to keep going through the process of extracting the games then you'll need to download this [Hidden Content] and download OSFMount. Launch the dsi nand tool and follow the steps when it asks you for your ConsoleID and your CID you can get those from when you first boot up TWLnf and you'll see them. Once you've gone throught the setup type 2 to decrypt the nand. Oh and did I mention that you need the the nand named as nand_dsi.bin inside DSIs/YourDsi after it is done you should now have a file called NAND_DEC_yourDSIconsoleID.bin. if it isn't in a .bin format then just make into a .bin format. Mount the Decrypted in OSFmount when you do mount each partition individually. Then click on each of the partitions until you find one with a folder caled title. Inside it you should find more folders with random numbers click on the folder that ends in a 4 and all of your games and dsiware should be in there. Now post them online and I'll add them to the list. If you want to know what game is which then put them on your sd card and follow the dsiware installation guide then when you get to the point of actually installing it, it should tell you what game it is. Extraction Method B: You must have a hombrewed 3ds or 2ds with FBI on it or a way to boot into the homebrew launcher. Nonetheless you have to be able to boot up into FBI. Go into FBI and then go into TWL Nand then go to title and go into the folder that ends in a 4 all your dsiware should be in there. Click on current directory and copy all contents of the folder then go all the back and click on SD card then click on current directory and click paste. You should now have the games on your SD card now just upload them and give the link in the comments! Extraction Method B Continued: But if you want to keep going so that you can install that particular game then first delete the folder that says cmd. and follow the guide to get the right TMD file. That is all. This is the guide [Hidden Content] Download for Games I Already Have: [hide ] [Hidden Content] [/hide ]

  3. PS1 on PSP sound Issues

    Hi PSX-Scene community! I'm new here and I have a question for anyone who knows the answer or knows someone who does. I've recently got my "JOY" of a PSP back out and started to put some PS1 games on there using POPSTATION. The problem I'm having is no gaming music in some of them. What I HAVE noticed is that the ones that have sound, when loaded up in UltraISO, it says it's a "PS CD". The ones with no gaming sound except only sound effects like sounds of shooting and enemies blowing up ETC, when loaded up in UltraISO, it says it's a "Mixed Mode CD". So is there ANY way to like convert these title's (mixed mode cd) so as to have sound? I've tried EVERYTHING, extracting the files, then using different programs to create ISO's or BIN/CUE files. I'm alittle worn out and need help from someone with ALOT more expertise than I have. The games I'm working with are REALLY cool SHMUPS with REALLY cool soundtracks, one of them being STAHLFEDER. Thanx for any help guys in advance, and have a good one. KEEP GAMING!

  10. WIIU

    Hi, has any one Toki Tori en Toki tori 2 is his collection for the WIIU
  11. GamerzCorp's team is overjoyed to present you its original and exclusive "eShop Games Mega Pack #1"'s thread! Welcome everybody! Waw, I have to notify that more than 90% of my free time this last month was dedicated to the Wii U scene, and although my abnegation was at its fullest it wasn't done without various difficulties. But somehow I truely loved diving into the deep work that was the dumping process along with the full codage of [Hidden Content] . And now that our releases library is quite consequent, I thought about giving them a proper and unique package where all our past and working titles could be downloaded at once! [ Cause yep, defectives titles are waiting for a fix to be officially released, so they'll wait till the second pack #2 =D ]. I surely can't pass over the admirable participation of these fellows on the scene with their own releases, their fixes, their covers & even their help on testing stuff : @mitcha, N1ghty (GBATemp), @fjar, @Moii, @yamaoka (Atsuma), MasterWin LGB (Facebook Spanish Group) AND of course those who leave a kind message on each release, I like to read them all guys, so never stop doing so! . Special mention to Dimok (GBATemp), creator of Loadiine&DDD and a fuck**g genious. Nothing wouldn't have be possible from my side without him O^O Let's get straight to the content of this pack, which I'm sure will give some people erec--FULL pleasure playing them all! Cause yes ladies & gentlements, there is no less than 35 eShop titles waiting to be inserted on your SD card(s) impatiently . Please discover below what the pack definitely contain (Click on the link to get its matching thread) : - Adventures Of Pip - Armillo - BIT TRIP RUNNER 2: The Legend Of Rythm Alien - Chasing Dead - Child Of Light - Chompy Chomp Chomp Party! - Chronicles Of Teddy - Harmony Of Exidus - Color Zen - Don't Starve Giant Edition - Dreamals - EDGE - Elliot Quest - Freedom Planet - Freeze Me - Grumpy Reeper - Human Resource Machine - Infinity Runner - Ittle Dew - Life Of Pixel - Lone Survivor Director's Cut - Master Reboot - Nihilumbra - Olympia Rising - Puzzle Monkeys - Shadow Puppeteer - Spy Chameleon - SteamWorld Dig - Stick It To The Man! - Tengami - The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth - The Cave - Trine Enchanted Edition - Whispering Willows - Wicked Monsters Blast! HD PLUS - Year Walk And everything dumped within a month (& half)! What do you say lovelies? \\O// *Sblaaaf!* Needless to say this very first pack is a good & entertaining way to prepare the second (When? I wonder too :3). But before we get there, you'd probably like to know that with a total of 25,8 GB Only for the compressed games, a strong and effective SD Card is needed to get the best of it [BUY MOAAAAAHHRRRR SD CARDS CAUSE OF ME! IT'S A CONSPIRATION FROM THE START!! BUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA xD]. -- Ahem.. Why am I not capable of making a single thread 100% seriously. Heh . So please, don't even think asking me about the expected weight of these games once uncompressed. It's a surprise [And a heartattack for a few] To download this pack, 2 methods have been carefully prepared. Each offers its advantages & disadventages. Torrent (OpenBittorent Network) : - Advantages : Cannot be putted down by any action, use no less than 5 open torrent trackers and offer a very long timelife for the pack staying online. - Disadventages : When no enough peers are connected, might take a while to be downloaded. For some people, having a torrent activated may cause network slow-downs. MEGA : - Advantages : Direct access to the files, for most people a very great bandwith offering a fast delivery of the games. - Disadventages : Can be putted down easily, in case of DMCA action or even if MEGA is closing down (Not impossible). For files larger than 1GB a plugin may be required [Except if you're using Maxthon, tested myself]. Thus, it's up to you to decide which one you'd like to use. Feel free to spread these links wherever you feel it could be useful, our mind is clear : Share with passion, share with everyone [Without sponsored links, you'd be kind ]. [Hidden Content] I thank you everyone for your likes & your cheers. They are why I went into so much releases here on Darkumbra, a forum we feel confortable with <3. I hope you'll also be there for the next releases to come, only YOUR support make me feel it's worth the time & the money spent into it . With all the best, good games to everyone \\O// Cybernatus.

  17. Growth in digital has seen video games overtake movies as the most lucrative entertainment medium in the UK. The figures published in the ERA Yearbook 2012 shows that despite faltering physical sales, digital downloads and apps meant UK games market sales reached £1.92bn in 2011. That’s well ahead of video on £1.8bn, and music which is on £1.06bn. Games accounted for over 40 per cent of the entertainment market. However, for the first 11 weeks of 2012, sales of physical DVDs and Blu-rays are double that of games. Even with the inclusion of digital, video is still No.1. “This is a dramatic time for the entertainment market,” said ERA director general Kim Bayley. “It’s a historic development for games to overtake video, which has long been the biggest entertainment sector. But sales so far this year suggest video is not going down without a fight.” Overall games, video and music sales dropped 3.3 per cent to £4.8bn. Source: Christopher [email protected]
  18. Videogames Used To Be Hard

    Not that this really needed proving (not to me, at least), it’s good to have decent support to wave in the faces of those who insist otherwise; videogames used to be pretty hard. As I said, this is far from ‘news’ to a lot of us, but seeing the gory details is damn interesting. Belgian Scientists from the Free University of Brussels have sat down with older games and analysed their difficulties. The games are all classic Nintendo games, which most notably include Super Mario Bros and first generation Pokémon. The study, which is available as a free PDF (link below), includes screenshots, diagrams and a to b explanations of the puzzles and problems in the games. The report is only 21 pages long, and I recommend you give it a quick read when you’re bored. [Hidden Content]
  19. Researchers at the University of Rochester found that decision making is greatly improved with those who play action-based videogames. And I mean greatly improved; they found that decision making times by action gamers were 25% higher than others, without sacrificing accuracy. ‘Practiced’ gamers were able to pay attention to more than six things at once without getting confused, while the average non-gamer can usually only follow four. I can attest to that; anyone who obsessively played The Sims with a household of four employed Sims will know how hectic even that can be, never mind the ‘surrounded by a group of individual men moving around the map and firing at me at once’ mayhem of an online shooter today. Studies also found that female gamers were better able to mentally manipulate 3D objects, an attribute usually handed to men. It’s always interesting to see the various institutes that conduct these studies regarding videogames and looking at their results compared with their intentions, and I’m waiting to read that catching Pokémon does increase sexiness. source: University of Rochester

  21. Bloomberg reports that Nintendo is facing increasing investor pressure to develop titles for the iPhone and other platforms. The rift highlights the dilemma President Satoru Iwata faces as consumers shun Nintendo devices to play games on iPhones, iPads and Facebook Inc.’s website. The flop of the 3DS debut prompted the company to slash prices 40 percent in Japan starting today, the first time the games developer has resorted to such a move within six months of a product’s debut. Nintendo has seen very poor initial sales of its new 3DS platform in the face of slumping DS and Wii sales, resulting in the announcement of a quarterly loss of $328 million late last month. In reaction, Nintendo has slashed prices of its 3DS in order to promote sales, but Bloomberg reports that investors want a more dramatic shift in strategy. Nintendo's stock, which is currently near a 6 year low, saw a big boost after news last month that an affiliated company of their's, Pokemon Company, announced plans to release a Pokemon-themed iPhone game. Nintendo was quick to deny that they had any involvement and that Nintendo had no plans to bring titles to external platforms. Their stock subsequently saw a corresponding drop. Alternatively, some have suggested that Nintendo should "buy its way into" the smartphone platforms by acquiring companies and technology or developing their own. Mobile applications and gaming have seen huge growth over the past few years, clearly impacting both Nintendo's and Sony's portable gaming systems. In line with that interest, a number of major acquisitions have taken place with iOS-related gaming companies such as Ngmoco, Open Feint and Chillingo. Despite these trends, according to Bloomberg, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has said that Nintendo will only make titles for its own products as long as he's in charge. Source: MacRumors I personally agree with Iwata. I think that instead of focusing on other platforms like Apple's iOS App Store, they should focus on developing fantastic core titles for their current and upcoming platforms, like Mario, Zelda, and Metroid. Along with 3rd party support, that should get Nintendo back to their old dominating ways. Developing for other platforms will only fragment growth on actual Nintendo systems, and is just a "quick fix" for Nintendo profit wise. That's just my opinion though, so what do you guys think?
