Some idiot at my school won't shut the hell up about wanting a legit Deoxys in FireRed. How can I trigger the event to shut him up? Glitches are fair game, but he's emulating (RetroArch/mGBA, on a Chromebook) so no trading.

Remember the game "Terrifying 9/11"? No?

good because it's garbage

EXCEPT for the fact that BGB won't run it because something something custom pirate cart.

well, yet. That's what i'm trying to accomplish, anyway.



This is further than the stock ROM, at least. Stock ROM just turns off the LCD and hangs in one of various ways.

(Probably not gonna stop trying either because why not I can use the experience)

Debate Wars / Gun Control in the US
« on: March 15, 2018, 09:50:17 am »
I'd love to hear the opinions of other people on gun control/gun bans in the US, as that's a hot topic right now.

Personally, I feel that weapons like pistols, shotguns, rifles, etc. are fine as they are, but weapons that can be more powerful, exotic weapons, weapon platforms (AR-15), etc. should require extra training (along the lines of conceal carry training and certification) to be owned (unless modified to be inoperable, like a prop or smth). And, of course, you'd need the training to buy the ammo too (something like presenting the certificate of training when you go to buy it).

Forum Discussion / Forum Thread Cleanup Required
« on: January 14, 2018, 12:51:22 pm »
Can we unpin and lock threads about really old things? Like, do we really need a pinned thread on Wii/DS(i) friend codes anymore?
or E3 2013?
or E3 2010?
or Smash Bros. Brawl?
or... what even is this?

Do we really still need these to be pinned and open still?

General Discussion / A Guide to Everything Malware
« on: January 12, 2018, 04:26:55 pm »
A few people have asked me to give them malware for one or another reason, but I've usually given them instructions on how to keep themselves safe while using malware for testing, wiping, etc. However, there's only so much you can say over Discord before you get ignored, so I'm writing a guide called "Parzival's Comprehensive Guide on Preparing For, Containing, Collecting, Maintaining, Trapping, Testing, and Recovering From Malware" to alleviate the issue.

best name i know

Guide resides at:
https://goo.gl/c9McYY
(shortened because ynawt?)

It cover hows to prepare for a malware collection, how to prepare for malware attack, how to maintain a malware collection, how to recover from malware that slips out of a VM, etc. The name says what it talks about, essentially.

Debate Wars / Riots

What's your stance on the current riots happening due to racism?
There's no judgment here. If someone judges you, I'll... I'll get the fucking mean police on 'em. Anyway...
My stance is that both sides can deal with it.

Computers and Technology Discussion / Anti-virus and Anti-malware tests
« on: August 03, 2017, 10:23:21 am »
Because I'm bored, I'm testing my entire 50GB malware collection against several popular anti-virus and anti-malware products. This should be interesting.
Your mileage with detection will DEFINITELY vary, but none of my malware's newer than 2012, so the rates should be fairly high. These tests will only be done with the Free versions of the software.

Detection rates:
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: 8.6%

Emulation & ROM Hacking / All-System Emulation Accuracy Tests
« on: August 01, 2017, 07:00:57 pm »
After the testing done on GBx emulators with 8F/ws m, I decided to do this when I got around to it. I'm bored, so I figured why the hell not?
This'll be for ALL systems, not just GBx, so it'll take a long time to do.
Help is appreciated.

Test ROMs to use:
GBx: Mental Respirator
GBA: Up Rough City
Genesis: Overdrive
NES: High Hopes
SNES: TBD
Master System: TBD
More systems to come...?

Most accurate emulators:
GBx: Surprisingly, KiGB won. It's as accurate as BGB, HOWEVER it emulates the color issues that the CGB's LCD had instead of showing the real colors, which bumps it just ahead of BGB. If you're emulating 2 GBCs with link capabilities, however, GEST is definitely the way to go.
GBA: BatGBA
Genesis: Exodus
NES: You're all garbage. NOT A SINGLE ONE would run the test ROM and survive past 5 frames.
SNES: TBD
Master System: TBD

All of these ROMs are homebrew tech demos where the dev groups compete to see who can make the coolest tech demos. These people do things no one knows about beforehand, so they're quite good indicators of accuracy. Think dick-measuring contests between hypergeeks.

Someone told me my NES tests were invalid since I didn't set PAL mode, and that KiGB isn't the most accurate since BGB also has the LCD color-difference, I just have to set it.
I'm going to say this now:
THE ONLY SETTINGS I CHANGE ARE WINDOW SIZE AND RESIZABILITY WHEN NECESSARY. ALL EMULATION- AND COLOR-RELATED SETTINGS ARE UNCHANGED. ALL OF THESE EMULATORS WERE TESTED WITH FIRST-RUN CONDITIONS. I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO SET THE REGION OR COLOR SETTINGS, THESE THINGS SHOULD BE DETECTED OR SET AUTOMATICALLY.

My local store just got their display New 2DS XL. Anyone know how to f**k with it?

(Side note: I'm posting from the display iPad Pro. It's disgustingly outdated. iOS 5... Also, the tether for the display 2DS has a developer cart box... whatever the hell it's called.)
