I'm kinda sad that I live in the Pacific Northwest because our weather is really mild year-round. Doesn't get too warm in the summer, or too cold in the winter. Don't have a lot of snow, or a lot of rain (it's more of a constant drizzle).

It's convenient, but convenience is boring!

Sorry about that. Migrating to the new server broke the email configuration. Should be working now.

Forum Discussion / Help with regaining my Original Account
« Last post by coloradohugge[Temporary] on Yesterday at 12:37:21 pm »
Yo,

I've had trouble with Login for my account the last two months, My guess is that there could've been some issues either with some upgrade of the website or that i requested to change my username from HPoké_Coloradohugge to only coloradoghugge earlier some year ago (I did notice during the time me and Evie we're working on the entries for the international glitch pokémon pages that my own userpage displayed the wrong username too, so maybe there's some issue that is related to this idk).

Anyways, I also tried to press the "i forgot my password" button, but it doesn't even send a link to my email even though it says it did. infact, i had to use my alt. email adress just to make this temporary account since the forums doesn't let two users profiles be created with the same e-mail adress.

Could some admin maybe help me regain access to my account maybe?, and is there some way i can prove that it's me somehow? I'd rather have my actual account back than using a new one. If i get my real one back this one could be deleted.

Thanks in advance, feel free to email me: coloradohugge@gmail.com or simply reply to this tread

Thank you Sherkel ! :)

I only have one small nitpick: mentioning the sprite decompression routine out of nowhere (which actually does cause data to be written to an unintended place in 'M's case, that being the Hall of Fame) isn't really necessary, as it doesn't relate to any of the other content in the presentation. As I said, though, minor nitpicks; no audience would know the difference,

The intent was to show how security researchers can try looking for things to exploit. I think (hope) this was clearer when I talked than when I later did the writeup. I'll improve that, thanks !
Thank you for telling me about the 'M's case, I correct this :)

and they don't detract from the quality and thoroughness of the research. Knowing that this is going to be presented in a lecture setting is awesome. :D
I gave it twice already, about 150-200 attendees total. And people seem to enjoy it and to learn more than they expected. I'll try to post the video (in french) when it's available.
Apprently organizers of two different conferences want me to give it again. If somebody here want to try giving the talk I may be able to help :)

Wow, this is really great to see! There truly is so much to learn from taking apart these games and even just looking at the deconstructed parts and seeing the exploits they allow for. Going to proofread now; major props for having the idea to use the site's information for this!

I read through it. The presentation is excellent, both accurate and pleasingly thorough.

Hi,

  I am an (ex?) Java developper. Since I work less these days, I took time to have a look at how the Old Man Glitch worked and hade a lot of fun. I gave a talk about it at local Java User Group, and have been asked to give it again at DevFest Toulouse (developper conference with about 550 people, maybe 150 people choosed to attend this talk).

  I tryed to make a precise writeup of the presentation and it is available on github: https://github.com/FabienTregan/TheOldManGlitch/ . It is meant at people who would like to give the talk, or attendees who would like to reproduce it at home.

  I am by no way an expert in Pokémon nor GameBoy dev, and english is not my first language. There are probably lots of errors and imprecise things: feedback is greatly appreciated.

  While writting the talk, I did not find much information about how / when / by who the glitch was discovered and when the RCE was crafted. I could only tell that I've found all information on this forum and on the disassembled Pokered code on github. Any verified information is welcome.

  I gave this talk mainly to show new or old devloppers who are more into java / javascript / php that security and assembly can be fun and that they can learn the basis. This lead to some choices, e.g. using the Fossil method instead of the Dry one to underflow the item count because it was more interesting to explain what was happening.

Thanks for all the great information on this forum,
thanks also for any feedback.

treg.
