    3. Nes News

    weird news but here it is:

    • You own some SNES cartridges, but you only have NES console, well no problem, as you can now run SNES games on your original NES!
      Tom Murphy, aka Tom7, has found a way to manipulate NES cartridges so that they can truly outperform what would usually be expected from them. Tom hacks the circuit boards of these cartridges, equipping them with Raspberry Pi 3 mini-computers. The Pi plays host to a number of SNES ROMs which are all filtered through a special program, translating the necessary data into something the NES can read and essentially display on a TV.

      If you want to see all of this happening in action, check out the video below. The idea starts to take shape at around 5:40, and if you skip ahead to 16:12, you'll see Tom placing the finished NES cartridge into the system, allowing the NES to play the SNES classic Super Mario World. This is some kind of Back To The Future-style wizardry that goes well over our heads, but it's pretty amazing to see.

      This isn't the only interesting project that Tom7 has created, though. A few years back he created a computer program that could learn how to play NES games on its own, with just tiny amount of instruction from the player. Somehow, though, seeing Super Mario World be played on a NES just seems even more crazy. We're all used to Virtual Console, where retro games are played on newer systems, but reversing that is very interesting indeed.

      Now then, who's up for some Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Game Boy Color? -- Nah, I want to see Super Mario Odyssey for the newest console, the Nintendo Switch, running on my NES console, or better yet the NES Classic Mini, to prove you don't need the latest shit

    2. Retro Consoles/Translation News

    • Atari been hyping up their launch of new console for many months now, but before nothing but a fancy box with lights were shown, but now we finally get some solid hardware specs. of what inside the retro-wooden-styled Atari's new console, check it out below:

      “We are happy with the progress we are making on Atari VCS and thrilled that fans finally have a chance to reserve the first ones,” said Michael Arzt, Atari COO of Connected Devices. “Atari VCS will give fans a lot of freedom to game, stream, connect and customize their experience like never before. The entire Atari team is working hard to deliver this unique platform and can't wait for fans to get their hands on it. We’ll have exciting reveals and announcements between now and then so stay tuned!”
      Additionally, the Atari VCS platform will support 4K resolution, HDR and 60FPS content, onboard and expandable cloud storage options, dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, as well as USB 3.0 support. Moreover the proprietary Atari VCS User Interface that the device packs integrates optional voice control and a web browser for full access to the internet.

      A new Atari VCS launch video accompanied the announcement: (see the video below)

      And what about games? Every Atari VCS comes with the Atari Vault collection of more than 100 classics like Asteroids, Centipede, Breakout, Missile Command, Gravitar and Yars’ Revenge. (see the video below)

      And that's as much as we know for now but the team behind the Atari VCS previously said that "a growing list of games, especially a full range of popular modern titles, will be announced at later dates". Nevertheless, the Indiegogo campaign page is touting the device as a "gaming and home entertainment streaming device with open platform for creativity and customization". This might entice tinkerers as the platform runs on Linux and might evolve into a community investing in independent software development for the console.

      However this revival of the Atari brand in the console market does not come cheap. The less pricey option is the Atari VCS Onyx priced at $199 USD (without controllers), and that for a limited time. Other options include extra controllers or even the $299 USD Indiegogo-exclusive Atari VCS Day One Collector’s Edition, also available only for a limited time. Nevertheless, there seem to be a lot of people interested in the product as its campaign has raised 1819% of its initial goal (over $1.8 million) at the time of writing, with a month left before the backing ends.

      The Atari VCS has an expected delivery date of July 2019. But the big question is, do you like the 'specs.' posted above? And if so, will you pre-order one, or what until next year?

    2. Wii U News

    Some awesome news for the WiiU Scene, the PSP Emulator PPSSPP has been ported:
    The Wii U homebrew scene is still alive, proven by a new emulator for use on the Wii U: PPSSPP. The gameplay is choppy for most games that have been tested, Ridge Racer and Street Fighter Alpha 3 among them, but this emulator's release is an alpha build, meaning there's certainly more to come and refining to be done eventually. This adds yet another system to the Wii U's emulation repertoire.

    Heres a new version of the Game Boy Advance Emulator for the Nintendo Switch:

    A quick port of VBA-next(VBA-M https://github.com/libretro/vba-next). I developed it on 4.1 so, it definitely works on this version. It's partly based of 3DSGBA https://github.com/shinyquagsire23/3DSGBA.

    vba-next-switch v0.5
    UI improvements
    Fast forward is now on the R button
    There's an option to swap the function of the L and R buttons with ZL and ZR's function.
    Some minor adjustments and bug fixes(see the commits made)

    vba-next-switch v0.4
    Reduced lag from emulator and main thread image synchronisation
    Increased filename buffer
    Filenames are sorted alphabetically

    Note: this release was originally named 0.3b, but since Github sorts the releases weirdly, I decided on renaming the release

    vba-next-switch v0.3
    Better audio in almost all situations
    More robust string and path handling
    Added autosaving
    Added settings menu (press Minus to open it)
    Added screen scaling (Options: Nearest Integer, Nearest Fullscreen, Bilinear Fullscreen. The last one is a bit slow so I don't recommend it)
    Added RTC support
    Fixed #8 (analog sticks can be disabled via the settings)

    Thanks to @jakibaki, who contributed both the autosaving and the RTC support
