    Hi all its been too long but the hacking of the site a few months ago made us update security features and to the latest version of vbulletin.

    One of the downsides was a massive loss of positions in Google which is one reason for the bringing back of all the DCEmu Network sites whilst keeping the new DCEmu CMS system..

    But also since then no one has been able to register and even get their lost passwords back.

    finally last night Martin traced the bug that caused this and that side of the site is now working properly again, thank god.

    Ill be sending an August newsletter out detailing all the recent news and fixes on DCEmu in the next few days.

    This weekend im hoping to bring back the remaining sites inc the coders sites and open new ones covering PSvita, 3DS, WiiU.

    Thanks for now. ...

    Well its been a busy few days since Martin upgraded not only the server but upgraded the forum to the latest version of Vbulletin and installed many new security features, hopefully this will stop the hacking that has done damage to the name of DCEmu.

    The last few days i have been posting like crazy and now we are back up to date and what a month it has been, if you follow the PSP, DS and Wii scenes you have seen so many new releases, infact i havent seen so much activity in a long time and some genuine great releases, the weeks away has really renewed my passion for homebrew.

    One thing i am going to do is bring back the old sites for archive purposes so that releases especially older ones can be found easy, there are thousands of pages on those sites that form a major history of the site and whilst the new CMS is great theres a need to be able to relive those releases, that is my next task and an ongoing one until they are all online.

    Over the last 4 days i have posted literally hundreds of news items and a couple of hundred Homebrew releases, so if you havent yet then check the forums to catch up on releases you may not have seen before.

    The Homebrew scene seems to be coming out of a dark period where homebrew was just linked to piracy and its good to remember that Homebrew is and never wil be the same as piracy.

    Long Live DCEmu and The Homebrew Scene,

    thanks for your time

    Yes, you read correctly... "The very first time", thanks to the U.S. PlayStation Store having the demo, which for some reason the UK store does not (I've even searched for it many times).

    Anyway, I played through the first level demo with my SEGA Saturn controller (I now refuse to play a Sonic game with a non-SEGA controller) and was quite impressed with the demo overall. Although, it was ruined by the adding of the lock-on targeting, which did not exist pre-SonicAdventure.

    Also, to celebrate my new YouTube channel (VampDudeDCEmu), which from time to time I will upload gaming related videos. My dodgy footage from my HDDcam, which was rested on my knee during gameplay. Something that will not be an issue once I go back to recording in my standard format, when my new HDD arrives for my homebrew PS3 (component to DVD) and free advertising to DCEmu.

    I'm considering purchasing the full version from the store, but I'll wait and see if anyone wishes to see a playthrough. Obviously without the shaky cam. ...

    Hi Buddy

    We are E3diy. Do you forget your E3card Reader?
    Today we will bring you a new surprise, a complete FREE gift, the E3 Golden Finger.

    Three months ago, there was a war that engulf the world. It's not only the war between SONY and hackers but also among the jailbreakers. You know, there were three kinds of jailbreaks: those could not be upgraded, those the clone of the clone of the clone and those big-ones which could downgrade the PS3 firmware from 3.50 to any lower version. Those of the three. That was three months ago. And now, how many of them can still be named?

    I don't want to mention that we were the one who had fistly cheated the PSN with a 3.5proof then made the SONY change its strategy; I don't want to mention that we were the first one who had released the world's first unlimited downgrader for completely free meanwhile some smart guys tried to sell their promise but made everyone upset.

    I just want to say, hi guys we are still here, we still work for your joy, and other than these, nothing is important. Currently, E3 GoldenFinger support genuine games (check game list), and the supporting for ROM is coming soon. You can download the E3 GoldenFinger by click here, and read the user guide from here.

    Armed with the E3 Golden Finger means that you could have:
    - unlimited ammo
    - unlimited HP and MP
    - An undead body in the game.
    - Teach those big-guys who truly is the right BOSS.

    The only thing you need is to:
    - Download the free upgrade file
    - Plug your E3card Reader in your PC
    - Copy the upgrade file (GoldenFinger.bin) to the E3Upgrader driver
    - Copy the CFD folder into the 4M memory stick (E3_4M_STICK).
    - Please refer to the user guide for the useage.

    Then everything is done.

    For your joy, we will
    - bring more new features to you,
    - add support for new games ASAP
    - try to make the next surprise for you quietly. ^_^

    Have a good time.

    E3 - make Everything Easy and Efficient

    Best Regards

    *NOTE: Although some of the features mentions playing "roms" or genuine games without the actual disc, we at DCEmu do not condone piracy. The purpose of this post is for reference and news purposes only.

    Japan is home to some of the biggest gaming companies in the world. With reports that last week's earthquake killed thousands of people and devastation in the country, the gaming community and companies has started to respond by sending relief and donations.

    Nintendo, which is headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, has announced it will donate 300 million yen ($3.6 million) to the relief effort.

    Sony Corporation also has announced that it will be giving 300 million yen in earthquake relief along with 30,000 radios to help those working with the relief effort.

    Sega Sammy is giving 200 million yen while Tecmo Koei will be donating 10 million yen to Japan Red Cross. Namco Bandai is donating 100 million yen through parent Bandai Namco Group. The company will also be suspending operations in arcades where power conservation is needed, and will be holding back on events.

    But it isn't just Japanese game-related companies that are donating to the effort. Microsoft has announced that it's giving an initial $2 million to help with relief efforts. Meanwhile, social gaming community Gaia Online has designed a series of virtual goods and will send the proceeds from those goods to the Red Cross.


    When Haiti was hit with their devastating earthquake last year, we (DCEmu Reviews) took donations which we we sent the American Red Cross. However, PayPal suspended my account even though we were doing a good cause. I had to refund the payments (even though we already submitted our donations to the ARC) in order for my account to be reinstated (it was also my personal account). So rather than go through this whole ordeal again, if you would like to help and donate whether it be $1, $5 or even $100, you can send donations to the American Red Cross. If you are unable to send payment, watch the news, read the newspapers or find out from your locals to see how you can help.

    Translation of image:

    "Dear customers who resell Nintendo 3DS "
    "non purchase able 3DS system"
    In case if you use equipment which is illegal or unapproved by Nintendo or if you do customization which is unapproved by Nintendo, there is a possibility that Nintendo 3DS become non bootable by system update.

    - From Nintendo 3DS terms of agreement

    Because of terms of agreement above, Enterking refuses to buy 3DS system with record of illegal or unapproved equipment.

    "Request to format before you sell"

    To protect from leaking your personal and internet connection information, We ask customer to format system. In case purchasing could not be established after you format 3DS system, Enterking is not responsible for lost datas and settings. Please understand before you format.

    Japanese game retailer Enterking issued a notice that it would not be buying back any 3DS units that were used with a R4-type devices - specifically "illegal or unauthorized devices". The notice states that there seems to be a record of such use left on the system. This would be in line with the rumors that the 3DS keeps a log of flash cart use, which then can be checked.

    The Nintendo terms of agreement clearly state that it is possible that the 3DS might not be able to boot up after firmware updates if unapproved or illegal devices are used in the 3DS. You've been warned! But will this still stop you?

    Here are some videos of flashcards running on Nintendo's new 3DS:

    When Sony releases a new firmware, its one of 2 things...apply new security patches or new features are added. With Sony's new 3.60 firmware, it's both. One of the new features is the option for Playstation Plus members to store their save game files on Sony's cloud based online storage system. Of course, if you wish to retain your jailbroken console or you plan on or currently have installed a CFW, DO NOT install the new OFW. It will overwrite your firmware and block the use of homebrew.

    Hey everyone – We’ve got an exciting new feature coming exclusively to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Included in the system software update (v3.60) coming tomorrow to PS3, PlayStation Network’s new online storage for game saves feature gives PlayStation Plus subscribers the capability to back up game save data to the cloud. Online storage for game saves is a great way for PlayStation Plus subscribers to ensure that their data files are secure and also for users who wish to access their files from other PS3 systems.

    The new online storage feature allows gamers to store up to 150MB of game save data and a maximum of 1000 data files per PSN account. Users also have the ability to back-up “copy-prohibited save data,” and all previously saved data may be restored once per 24 hour period. When the new feature launches, most PS3 titles will be compatible with online storage for game saves, and moving forward, all new titles will have the capability to offer the storage option.

    As I mentioned before, online storage for game saves functionality is included automatically for PlayStation Plus subscribers with system software update (v3.60), which will be available on March 10, 2011, and users can access their stored data on the XMB at any time. Additionally, users who save their files to the cloud can access their data on any PS3, using their PSN sign-in ID.

    PlayStation Plus subscribers should turn on the auto-download feature to ensure that the update will begin downloading as soon as it’s available, so you can start backing up your game saves right away. If you aren’t already a PlayStation Plus subscriber, be sure to check out our bi-weekly post highlighting the free games, discounts and exciting exclusives we offer, in addition to the upcoming online storage for game saves feature.

    Other minor features will also be added via system software update (v3.60). For more information please visit http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/ once the update is live.
    KaKaRoToKS has confirmed via Twitter: "Wow, in 3.60, Sony removed all the loaders, no more isoldr/lv1ldr/lv2ldr/appldr.. but they added lv0.2! Seems they found a way to secure ps3"
