    It seems that Nintendo are getting pissy against sites offering roms of their Systems, heres the news:

    • The sites are among the most notorious online hubs for pirated games, according to Nintendo, and face millions of dollars in potential damages. With the launch of NES Classic Games on their Nintendo Switch coming up soon in September, it means we are in for another wave of crackdowns by big 'N' over any site that offers Emulators or Retro ROMs for playing Nintendo games on other platforms.
      This week, Nintendo took two of these sites to court. In a complaint filed at a federal court in Arizona, the game publisher sues LoveROMS.com and LoveRETRO.co for copyright and trademark infringement.

      Both sites are believed to be operated by Jacob Mathias and his Arizona company Mathias Designs LLC. They offer access to a wide variety of ROMs, including many Nintendo games.

      “The LoveROMs and LoveRETRO websites are among the most open and notorious online hubs for pirated video games,” Nintendo writes in the complaint.

      “Through the LoveROMs and LoveRETRO websites, Defendants reproduce, distribute, publicly perform and display a staggering number of unauthorized copies of Nintendo’s video games, all without Nintendo’s permission.”

      In addition to the copyrighted games, the sites also distribute proprietary BIOS software, while using trademarked logos and characters, Nintendo notes.

      While some ROMs sites may be hobby projects, Nintendo sees these two sites as professional operations that profit from its works.

      “Defendants are not casual gamers but are instead sophisticated parties with extensive knowledge of Nintendo’s intellectual property and the video game industry more generally,” the company notes.

      Through the lawsuit, which also lists a count of unfair competition, Nintendo hopes to shut both sites down. The company requests statutory damages of $150,000 per infringing Nintendo game and up to $2,000,000 for each trademark infringement.

      This means that, with more than 140 copyrighted titles and 40 trademarks on the record, theoretical damages could go up to a staggering $100 million.

      Nintendo further requests a permanent injunction ordering the sites to stop their infringing activities while handing over domain names to the game publisher. At the same time, Nintendo wants the operator of the sites to reveal the sources for the infringing ROMs.

      As noted above, Nintendo is demanding a list of all 'uploaders' that filled up the site with these nasty illegal backup ROMs, so if you were nice sharing member, get ready to receive a letter if the site's owner caves into all the pressure from the lawyers, but so far he still fighting and operating the sites.

    One of the main apps you will need if your putting custom firmware on your 3DS/2DS:

    GodMode9 Explorer by d0k3 is a full access file browser for the Nintendo 3DS console. It gives you access to your SD card, to the FAT partitions inside your SysNAND and EmuNAND and to basically anything else. Among other functionality you can copy, delete, rename files and create folders. You can find the source here.
    [new] Support for PNG (for splashes, script previews, screenshots) (thanks @Wolfvak)
    [new] Display the SD FAT volume label in the drives listing
    [fixed] Several smaller bugfixes and improvements
    [deprecated] Deprecated PCX support in favor of PNG

    If you have a pal with a 3ds and the right game this could be a killer way of hacking your 3DS:

    If you lucky enough to have 'two 3DS consoles' there is simple way to get CFW on one them using a combo method of the previous Seedminer exploit and DSiWare Injection system, but his tutorial posted below makes it clear how to do the complex transfer setup.
    Hello! I think I've found a new method that combines Seedminer and DSiWare Injection, I'll explain this method here:


    • Console 3DS Source with a CFW and Godmode9
    • Console 3DS Target
    • DSi Ware compatible on the NNID account of the source console (list in step 1)
    • A mail address

    1. Preparation on the source console
      Check that you have a compatible DSIWare game on your NNID account and therefore in the list:

      Go to GodMode9 then press "HOME", then go to "Scripts" and "Backup Sysnand", do the requested actions (Unlock the write if requested), then save the NAND from gm9 / out in the computer, then reinsert the SD card into the source console.
    2. Preparation on the target console
      Go to Parameter and others then format the console, your NNID will be untied but can be used at the end of the hack.
      Go to Parameter and Others then go to Data Transfer then from a 3DS and receive data via another console.
      Do the same thing on the target console except that you select Send data instead of receiving.
    3. Data transfer
      Save the contents of the SD card of the source console in the computer, then reinsert it in the console, if you want to keep your friends on the source console they will be automatically put back in place thanks to the restoration of the NAND, on the target console will need to be added, make the data transfer.
    4. Hack of the target console with Seedminer
      Once the transfer is finished, finish the initiation of the console and then connect directly to the internet, then go to the Nintendo Eshop and normally as you get the account of the source console you must have the compatible DSiWare, download then once the download is complete you will have to go to settings and in Data Management and DSiWare to copy it to the SD card.
      Then go to this thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/seedmine...g-help.496114/ and follow the instructions for all steps.
    5. Data Restoration
      After doing all the steps from 1 to 15 on the FC mining and help thread you will have to put everything back in order so here are the different things to do:
      • Select the NNID of the target console in order to put it back on the source console:
        Contact Nintendo and tell them that you no longer have access to the old console and then follow their information.
        Once the NNID untied you can put it back on the source console.
        For the target console, reformat it (you will not lose the hack) then re-download the CIAS required software on 3DS.guide and finally connect your NNID account, everything should go for the best without contacting Nintendo on the target console.
      • Restore the NAND from the source console
        Go to Godmode9 with Start at the start of the console then press HOME and go to Scripts / Restore SysNAND, do the required actions then wait, then restart the console, you will then need to return the contents of the SD card previously saved in the computer .
      • Deactivate sending system information on both consoles:
        Go to setting and network then spotpass and Sending system information to No.
      • Add friends if needed:
        If necessary, re-add to the target console any friends lost during the transfer and formatting.
      • Edit mii and pseudo if needed:
        If your Mii or your nickname is different, go to the mii editor and put everything back in order.

    You can now enjoy all this hack that I myself tested with my friend and it's worked successfully!

    The awesome multi system supporting emulator has a new release, heres what systems this release is for starting with PC, Apple Mac, Android, IOS, Playstation 3, Playstation Portable, PSVita, Xbox Original, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Raspberry PI:

    RetroArch 1.7.3 has just been released! Grab it here. This latest version has also been uploaded to the Google Play Store. If you’d like to show your support, consider donating to the team. Check here in order to learn more.
    RetroArch now has a WIMP GUI, powered by the powerful multimedia framework Qt! This feature is available currently for Windows and Linux. macOS users will have to wait a while longer for this feature to arrive to their platform.

    The WIMP GUI works as a companion to the main RetroArch window. You bring it into view by pressing the F5 key on your keyboard. From there, you can do many tasks:

    • Select a game from any playlist
    • Browse the file system or any attached media storage device and load a game.
    • Scan directories for content and generate system playlists.
    • Associate cores to an entire playlist or associate only one entry of a playlist to a specific core

    Some things we’d like to note:

    • This has been the combined work of bparker and Tatsuya79 that have worked tirelessly on this for a month. We are aware of several features that we’d like to implement, such as playlist editing, grid view layouts, etc.
    • We are open to feedback on the GUI.
    • You will likely not see this WIMP GUI on Android or iOS (or any game console for that fact) anytime soon. WIMP interfaces don’t lend themselves well to devices that rely on touchscreen or gamepad-based controls.
    • (For Linux users) The Qt GUI should definitely work on X11. If you’d like to run it on Wayland, make sure you have the appropriate packages installed for Qt5 in your package manager. Be aware that Qt 5 cannot gracefully fail right now in case a platform module/plugin is missing from your system. This means that if you invoke the companion UI by pressing F5 on Wayland, and for whatever reason the platform module that Qt relies on in order to work on Wayland is not there, there is no way for RetroArch to gracefully fail there and just not show the companion UI. There will be a crash instead. Unfortunately we have talked to some Qt developers and they see no other way around this for now. The same situation applies for DRM/KMS right now. If we can find a better solution to this, we will certainly return to it.
    • (For mac Users) You will have to wait a bit longer for this to arrive to the Mac port unfortunately. Hopefully that wait is not too long.
    • We would like to still improve initial bootup times for the companion UI. Right now, on first initial startup, it can take anywhere from 5 to 10 seconds (depending on your harddrive and its performance), but on subsequent boots should only take 2 seconds or less for first startup. Hopefully by resorting to Link Time Code Generation and other avenues we can shave off some more seconds off this boot time.
