    Im just about to mod my modchipped Xboxs with bigger hard drives and put a load of games on them, heres a great article and video from one of the emulator greats from the Original Xbox Scene:

    Back in the early days of the original Xbox Scene, newcomer 'Lantus' entered the homebrew world with his port of the SNES9x Emulator releasing it on 'xbins' and the rest is a massive history of more Emulators and Homebrews, and now he looks back at the wonderful start of the Xbox Scene with his latest retro video which is released below.

    The Nintendo Switch homebrew and hacking scene is thriving at the moment and heres a news story about Linux running on the Nintendo Switch:

    he Switch scene has been on fire since the 34c3 talk, with Team-Xecuter soon afterwards demo'ing a coldboot logo change exploit, and then later on Team Fail0verflow showing off their 'coldboot scroller' and now they are teasing yet again with Linux boot-up!
    Fail0verflow have stated a month ago that they have a bootrom exploit on the Nintendo Switch, which virtually gives them full control of the console. It’s likely they’ve spent the past few weeks or months porting Linux to the console. The hacking team are very familiar with the process of porting the popular OS to consoles: most flavors of Linux running on hacked PS4s are based on their patches.

    If history repeats itself though, it is possible that Fail0verflow will release their Linux patches, but not the underlying exploits. In the case of the PS4, the scene had to wait for more than a year between the time Fail0verflow released their Linux port, and the time they revealed the exploits they used to get access to the system.

    Heres a nice release for owners of MACos machines, heres the release news:

    SameBoy v0.10.1 is released. SameBoy is a user friendly Game Boy and Game Boy Color emulator for macOS. SameBoy is extremely accurate and includes a wide range of powerful debugging features, making it ideal for both casual players and developers. In addition to accuracy and developer capabilities, SameBoy has all the features one would expect from an emulator – from save states to scaling filters. An SDL version is also available to Windows and Unix-like systems.

    SameBoy v0.10.1 Changelog:
    New/Improved Features
    - The libretro port can now be compiled for the Switch
    - Made the menu key more obvious in the SDL port
    - Can now emulate a Game Boy Advance in Game Boy Color mode
    - Changing a model in the SDL port is now done via the menu
    - Major improvements to the way the libretro port handles audio, significantly improving audio quality
    - It is now possible to select a specific model to emulate in the libretro port

    Accuracy Improvements/Fixes
    - APU stereo volume levels are now scaled emulated correctly (Volume levels are 1-8, not 0-7)
    - Triggering a pulse by writing to NRx4 now correctly changes the volume level of the previously played pulse. Fixes sound pops in Link’s Awekening.
    - The CGB boot now finishes with correct register values
    - Fixed APU DIV events sometimes causing audio pops in disabled channels. Fixes sound pops in Super Mario Land 2
    - Fixed a bug where the effects of NR50 and NR51 were unintentionally delayed. Fixes sound pops in Pokémon Puzzle Challenge and Donkey Kong ‘94.

    Bug Fixes
    - Fixed video issues with the libretro port when using Vulkan
    - Using a Joypad in the Cocoa port did not prevent the screen saver from starting

    If you can find old DOS games on abandonware sites then this emulator is awesome for playing those classics, heres the release news:

    DOSBox-X (2018/02/04) is released. DOSBox-x is a branch of DOSBox v0.74. DOSBox emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, joystick, modem, etc., necessary for running many old MS-DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and FreeBSD.

    DOSBox-X Changelog:
    * 3Dfx OpenGL state cleanup
    * output=opengl state cleanup
    * Eliminated OpenGL output kludge that resets state by forcing SDL to shutdown and reinitialize video driver
    * Other cleanup
    * Losing focus in fullscreen mode now restores the window instead of minimizing it
