    Im sure 90% of this forum loves Pokémon in some way, for those of you using either VBA-PS3 or the more advanced RetroArch, you can take advantage of  the Pokémon: Liquid Crystal Project whilst using your favourite control pad on your favourite console, now onto what Pokémon: Liquid Crystal Project actually is, he is a small quote from an article written by Jake Durasamy aka Zeikku, the Graphics artist for the project.

     

     

    What is Pokémon: Liquid Crystal?

    Pokémon: Liquid Crystal is a ROM Hack of Pokémon: Fire Red which was initially started by my friend Kristian, who had pretty much completed around 25% of the game’s overall development when he had appointed me to being the co-owner and developer of the project. Nowadays, there are other people on the team who are great assets and will be mentioned later on in this editorial.

    The workload between us was quite simple really. Kristian was in-charge of coding, scripting and the assembly and disassembly of our ROM. I was in charge of the graphics – so everything you guys can see in the screenshots below are redrawn from existing images or drawn completely from scratch in Microsoft Paint. We also have a music composer under the name “Magnius” who remixed and recomposed all of the original 8-bit melodies into 16-bit midi’s that we would then use to re-create the greatest unofficial Pokémon game of all time.

    The game itself is a Crystal remake and much more. The original Crystal version offered 251 obtainable Pokémon to catch, two regions to explore and 16 badges to acquire. Pokémon: Liquid Crystal, however, offers three regions to explore, 20 badges to acquire, 386 Pokémon to obtain and the same story as the original but with extra twists and story plots. This meant that we had to rid the ROM of all data from Pokémon: Fire Red – which then gave us a brand new, newly-formatted ROM. This space was then used for music, assembly routines, maps, region layouts and general graphics.

    Editorial: A developer’s diary on recreating Pokémon: Crystal for the GBA

     

    Jake also wrote this on Twitter:

    I’m the graphics artist and co-owner of the Pokémon: Liquid Crystal Project, a Crystal Remake for the GBA.

    If you are unaware of what the project is, please read the developer diary I wrote previously:
    http://www.neogamr.net/news/editorial-a-developers-diary-on-recreating-pokmon-crystal-for-the-gba

    Suggestions for graphics and visuals are appreciated as tweets to my Twitter account, simply because I’m online there all the time, but commenting on this reddit thread is fine, it just means it’ll take a little longer to reply at times.

    My Twitter account is found at: https://twitter.com/_Zeikku

    For any suggestions for features contact linkandzelda, the initial owner of the hack:
    https://twitter.com/linkandzelda137

    We really want to nail this release because it will be the first release candidate since beta 3 was released last year. You can also take the time to ask me questions, and I’ll do my best to answer all of them in Q&A fashion.

    So let’s hear those questions and suggestions.

     

    So go follow Jake on Twitter and give him some help :)

     

    You will need one of these Emulators to run the game:

    VBA-PS3 (Very Old)

    RetroArch (recommended)

    To download the game you will need to visit this link:

    Now this isn’t totally PS3 related, but it is related to the PS3 control pad and will come in hand for many of you, im sure.

    Over a year ago, we posted a story about an Android application that let you use your PS3 Control pad wirelessly on your Android device, the app has come a long way since then, it now allows you to map your own buttons to the specific area on the screen and whilst it isn’t the hardest thing in the world, the last thing people want to be doing is sitting configuring button maps before they play each game, for those of you who haven’t the time to map your own buttons, a brand new website has opened, where you can download pre configured button maps, here is a quote from the site:

     

    There is this really great outfit called Dancing Pixel Studios that created this really awesome app called SixAxis Controller which can tether your PS3 controller to an android device (yes, your Playstation 3™ controller to your phone or tablet)! Well, this application uses Profiles which are used for seperate games - it can be difficult to track down profiles or make your own. Well no longer!

    Update:

    Thanks to user @hellish We have some details about this new *DRM DEVICE*

    Translation:

    1: We really appreciated duowan’s unbiased test and everyone’s enthusiasm.
    2. When delivering the test PS3 to duowan, we never mentioned anything about CFW4.21 being commercial or not, so it’s not fair to blame us for cheating duowan. We deeply apologize for any misunderstandings.
    3. Team Blue Disk has never released any 3.55 USB dongle before, so please do not confuse us with those discredited teams.
    4. We understand that many users are dissatisfied with previous 3.55 dongles, so we have prepared two versions:
    A: You cannot upgrade to newer CFW and will remain at the current CFW
    B: You can upgrade to newer CFW. We will offer free handware change and free software update. We promise to update this CFW continually.
    Both these two versions are very cost-effective and we will announce the price later.
    5 Please be prepared for more wonderful surprises when we launch Blue Disk.

    FAQ on BlueDisk
    1. Blue Disk is compatible with downgradable consoles ONLY, and can be updated to from 3.55 or below.
    2: No need to modify your hardware after upgrading to this new CFW and you can downgrade to 3.55 again via PUP. You can upgrade to OFW. These actions can be performed repeatedly.
    3. No bricking risk involved (do not turn off power when upgrading)
    4. Original game backup can be run on BDCFW via internal or external HDD without any modifications.
    5. Blue Disk dongle can be removed after CFW is booted. No need to keep it plugged in all the time.
    6. BD team will develop more features for BD USB dongle, such as PS2 emulating, offline/online cheat codes

    ==============================================================================================================

    WARNING: All this info from here it’s a mix of my broken english plus Chinese so if your braincells explodes, not my fault. You are free to check the source and use any translator you want. 

    Well here i will share something i found, many random posts and quotes:

    所謂的4.21 cfw說到底就是經過大量公開測試然後推出新款電子狗賣錢的所謂破解,難怪在外國人眼中一向都看不起中國人,這樣的行為根本違背了破解共享的義意!!

    The cfw 4.21 constitutes the bottom line saying a lot of public expenditure went through test launches for a new electronic trading Silver Dog constitutes a break, this is hardest on developing countries, a country in the eyes of people in the People’s Republic to those who are dismissive.
    And thus shalt thou do the fundamental rebelled against the righteous cracking shared. !

    Note: Someone is not happy about this…

    =====================================

    Plus they are not looking forward about Rebug (some user stated) possible close to admin’s toughts.

    ======================================

    Red Power JB3 version 5.21 CFW….

    ======================================

    They are talking about business is businness and if they don’t want to release the whole *pack* but the Solution SHOULD be free…

    ——————————————————-

    Update:

    Some more random comment:

    Some reference about some of the money and shows the real ugly face of the foreigners, already have been exposed for reasons dismissing more than China, perhaps it is only the so-called false sense of superiority …

    Response to that comment:

    This is not exposing true colours (faces, intentions), there are many opportunities to people to use for the ones who do not want to be respected

    Let’s wait what Mgt hua says, wait for : rebug 4.21 CFW from Fei. Free PUBLISH!!

    Note:

    For some reason many Chinese users want this published FREE or released for free but the admin is not reporting anything yet.
    But i think they are debating if it’s right to make a free release or make business with it. Which using some common sense, business means in some kind way a new DRM or something similar.

    =======================

    BLUE DISK?!?!:

    Once again - I swear, the day before I really do not know what it is you want to sell the *DOG* and the test on the host. (RED Blue Disk POWER), the discussion Then, Blue Disk (RED POWER) discussion, vent (was leaked?) it in this post Reply.
    Blue Disk (RED POWER) prohibit new open new topic related no open posts necessary (and decided by the Moderator whether there is necessary to start a topic), and offenders to delete, gag those without treatment - whether it is praise or scolding equally.

    Verdict:

    I was checking many of the messages on the bbs board but seems they have a heavy *fight* or crossed opinon in there betwwen them, seems this was a big move to advertise the site with some *real* CFW.

    • There’s no solid PROOF whatsoever that this exists.
    • Can be a LEAD for a new DRM device (like i said many times 3 were predicted this year) maybe one can be the real one.
    • Probably a new COBRA incoming with new features, since they go hand to hand with mM.
    • We cannot check NOTHING about this, because so far we have ONE video and various pics. No download LINK nothing.

    This being said i hope in this week this *issue* clarifies but i have more message for RED or indeed the whole board, if between users keep fighting you will not achieve nothing. Quite the contrary you will confuse more and eventually get debunked and labeled as FAKE.

    Regards

    Hellsing9

    P.s: If you don’t like this, don’t read. If you don’t give a damn about this IGNORE. If you don’t like the way i manage things..well it’s your problem not mine. THANKS!!! ;)

    Everyone that is a member of this forum, or any other PS3 related website, knows that Sony hate the PS3 Homebrew Developer, this is because they don’t have any control and wouldn’t make any money out of it, but they are looking for developers as long as you obey their command, they are looking for small games studios and bedroom developers in the UK, here is some info:

     

    XDEV-Logo

    It’s an incredibly exciting time to be a budding developer in the UK and with the imminent launch of PlayStation Mobile small development teams and even bedroom coders can create great games for the platform.

    It’s with the arrival of PSM and our continued commitment to finding and nurturing new development talent that, in conjunction with Creative England and Birmingham Science Park, we have established PlayStation Pioneers. The initiative will give smaller developers the opportunity to win £25,000 for a games concept and the opportunity to work alongside Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Europe External Development Studio (XDev).

    With the PlayStation Mobile development studio freely downloadable, taking part in PlayStation Pioneers could not be easier and this is a great opportunity for smaller developer’s with little or even no PlayStation experience to make a great new game for PlayStation. It is equally a great opportunity for XDev to meet passionate and talented teams within the UK and for us to hear all about your great ideas!

    Now for the details:

    • The opportunity is open to UK-based developers only
    • The goal is to take a concept/prototype and develop a playable ‘vertical slice’ suitable for consumer trial/user testing in summer 2013.
    • The deadline for submissions is 31st October 2012
    • Five finalists will then be selected to exhibit at this year’s LAUNCH conference taking place at Birmingham Science Park on 13th and 14th November 2012 and present their concepts to a panel.
    • £25,000 will be awarded to the winning entry
    • XDev will have the first right of refusal in regard to publishing the final game.
    • The winner will be announced by the panel at LAUNCH on 14th November 2012.

    “PlayStation Mobile is the best platform for the next generation of game developers to get their first game published! I really encourage submissions from recent graduates, game incubators and young start-ups to take a shot at this.”

    Maria Stukoff, Head of Academic Development at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe

    For more information, please visit the PlayStation Pioneers website. Good luck!

    Im sure everyone here has done it, that is ranted on Twitter, i know ive done it quite often, but then im not a well known ex Sony employee and it wont affect my future job prospects, unlike Will Powers, who recently lost his job from the company.

    Will Powers was the first winner of The Tester, went on a multi Tweet rant, he was annoyed at how Sony laid of him and half of his PR team mates, here the rant:

    I am sure we have some FIFA fans out there, well good news for you today. Team DUPLEX has released a CFW version for FIFA 2013 (EBOOT patch). If you by chance have any hanging issues, simply restart the game.

    To quote NFO:

     Release Info:
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      Overwrite the files with the ones in the archive and enjoy !
      Notes:
      ~~~~~~
      In rare occasions we noticed, that if you start the game for the first time,
      and it hangs when loading, quitting back to xmb and simply restarting the game
      fixes it.

    A Chinese website has posted what they claim is a CFW for 4.21, the titler of the thread reads,

    [News] [the exclusive worldwide news] RED POWER 4.21CFW confirm is true!

    And here is a terrible Google Translated quote from the source:

    Just deliberately pulled Ida driving to the the RED POWER city where, met with their people and
    then get it back one is said to brush a 4.21CFW hosts
    not open test, ready to begin testing next
    evaluation please wait …… ——————- update: host songce HDMI interface is bad, then the TV box on hand, chromatic aberration line as well as support for AV input of the display device, thinking solutions —————————- updated again: buy a component cable encounters heavy rain, all wet finally back the find component cable screen flash orz finally found a conference room projector can be used AV interface, meow, white rain, anger!

    The video:

    The source of this exclusive

    Now the question is, is this a new CFW or just DOA 5 patched to work on 3.55 CFW ?

    UPDATE

     

    Most on the forum believe this to be fake, but im going to humour you with an update, also the translation is yet again done with the terrible Google Translate:

     

    [Crack] RED POWER 4.21CFW evaluation specifically posts

    This post will serve as evaluation designed software, while test side update, sustained attention!
    Want to say: I’m just testing the only valid and the consultation released way like true is not within my ability. Until now, I only got a brush system host everything! The detailed subsequent issuance Do not pinning his hopes in me, all RED the POWER can decide things

    Another great update has been publicized by aldostools. This time he released a new app, called PS3 Keys 1.0, and updated the BruteForce/SCETool Decrypter tool to version 2.0.2. All Downloads are available on his website aldostools.org

    Today I updated the BruteForce 2.0.2 package again…
    but this time the update is not related to any of the tools, but related to the ps3 keys (both .ps3 and scetool’s keys file).

    Here is the background:
    Yesterday I decided to recheck the .ps3 keys and realized that it was a bit difficult to edit/fix the keys using just an hex editor.
    So I created this tool to review the keys and edit them with a little more ease.

    I used the .ps3, datakeys and ps3devwiki Keys article for a three-way comparison.

    And found some mistakes in scetool’s datakeys file and some missing keys in “.ps3″ and others keys were wrong.
    Not to talk about all the mistakes in the ps3devwiki already discussed here some days ago.

    So I did the best that I could do and fixed the files included in the updated archive of BruteForce 2.0.2

    It would be great if some of the experts here could double check if all the keys that I updated are correct now or if there are still more mistakes…

    PlayStation VP of hardware marketing John Koller says Sony will support aging console as long as development scene is running; claims $270 price point for new model a result of consumers’ call for value.

    The PlayStation 3 isn’t going away anytime soon. PlayStation VP of hardware marketing John Koller told GameSpot this week that Sony will continue to support the aging console until at least 2015, and possibly longer, provided the development scene continues to exist.

    Elsewhere in the interview, Koller defended the new PS3 model’s $270 price point-above the current $250 entry level unit-saying gamers have called for value, and claiming Sony is coming through with its new bundle.

    Note from @fanboysarestupid

    I’m sorry, did $ony just somehow forgot the world’s in an economy crisis right now?

    This thing looks very cheaply made and its price should also be rather cheap too.

    Something weird is happening on the COD series world an official REP said that the game will include an option to install textures on your HDD to avoid using too much your BR drive lense.
    We experimented something similar with BF3 series where you have an HD extra package of textures to install them.
    Maybe they are *scared* about the results of the new 4K series

    To quote:

    Black Ops 2 Game Director David “Vahn” Vonderhaar has taken to the official Call of Duty forums to reveal that the PS3 version of the game will include an option to install textures to the harddrive.

    Now, before PC and Xbox 360 cry that they’re getting the short end of the stick, Vahn has confirmed this won’t give any “significant performance gains” to the PS3. It’s there to keep the PS3′s Blu-ray lens to wear out.

    Here’s Vahn’s message in its entirety:

    This is one the fans having been asking us about demanding for a bit. Black Ops 2 has an option to “Install Textures to HDD.”

    When we explained to PS3 folks that installing to the HDD wouldn’t neccessarily give us any significant performance gains, they explained back that the issue is they play so much it puts constant stress on the Blu-ray drive and wears them out.

    Roger that.

    It’s a non-trivial amount of HDD space to install all the textures. I don’t want to get into exactly numbers because anything can, and does change during development.

    You don’t have to install to enjoy the game. We still pre-cache like we did on Black Ops.

    David ‘Vahn’ Vonderhaar

    Of course, this install is optional and as Vahn states, he doesn’t want to divulge how much disk space this will eat up as they haven’t finalized it yet.

    While I appreciate Treyarch even considering this, I just hope Black Ops 2′s netcode is up to snuff. I don’t know about you, but Black Ops 1 might have had the worst netcode out of all the Call of Duty games I’ve played.

    Will you be installing the textures to your HDD? Come to think of it, do you play that much that your Blu-ray’s life is in jeopardy?

    Another lv2 Exploit has been published, this time from german dev KDSBest. He claims he did not get it to work on firmware 4.21, so he did it on 4.20. If you don’t know what lv2 is, you can read it up on the ps3devwiki.

    Since @naehrwert posted an lv2 exploit I will do so too . The stack pointer points to lv2 and if we do a syscall, the syscall saves register to the stack HAHA.  Btw. It just crashes the console for now, since I totaly overwrite dump the lv2 or some memory addresses I don’t know. Feel free to try around, adjust the address of the stackpointer and so on. If you managed to get the panic payload executed. Tell me!!! ^^

    //compile: ppu-gcc kds2.c -o kds2.elf
    //or: ppu-lv2-gcc kds2.c -o kds2.elf

    register unsigned long long payloadHolder2 asm (“r21″);
    register unsigned long long payloadHolder asm (“r20″);
    register unsigned long long stackpointer asm (“r1″);
    register unsigned long long counter asm (“r25″);
    register unsigned long long bufferStackpointer asm (“r26″);

    int __volatile__ main(int argc, const char* argv[])
    {
    // backup Stack pointer
    bufferStackpointer = stackpointer;

    payloadHolder = 0x3960024F3960024FUL;
    payloadHolder2 = 0x4400000244000002UL;

    // Incrementer
    counter = 0×00;

    // Play with that address till the panic is executed, I lack of time todo so
    // add always 2 or 4 to it, i would try 4 or 8… bla bla you will get the idea
    stackpointer = 0x8000000000000100UL;
    doItAgain:
    // KDSBest Payload
    // Prepare for our Syscall

    asm(“li %r0, 0×0″);
    asm(“li %r3, 0×6″);
    asm(“li %r4, 0×1″);
    // li r11, 0x24F -> PANIC
    asm(“mr %r22, %r20″);
    asm(“mr %r23, %r20″);
    asm(“mr %r24, %r20″);
    asm(“mr %r27, %r20″);
    asm(“mr %r28, %r20″);
    asm(“mr %r29, %r20″);
    asm(“mr %r30, %r20″);
    asm(“mr %r31, %r20″);

    // Stack Pointer = Build Address of LV2
    stackpointer += counter;

    // Syscall 0xA9
    asm(“li %r11, 0xA9″);
    asm(“sc”);
    counter += 0×04;

    // We write sc
    asm(“mr %r22, %r21″);
    asm(“mr %r23, %r21″);
    asm(“mr %r24, %r21″);
    asm(“mr %r27, %r21″);
    asm(“mr %r28, %r21″);
    asm(“mr %r29, %r21″);
    asm(“mr %r30, %r21″);
    asm(“mr %r31, %r21″);

    // Stack Pointer = Build Address of LV2
    stackpointer += counter;

    // Syscall 0xA9
    asm(“li %r11, 0xA9″);
    asm(“sc”);
    counter += 0×04;

    if(counter < 0×1000000)
    goto doItAgain;

    stackpointer = bufferStackpointer;
    return 0;
    }

    I didn’t managed to make it work on 4.21 so I just did on 4.20

    Naehrwert is always active, this guy don’t stop (lucky for him) Now with this:

    To quote:

    A long while ago KaKaRoTo pointed me to a stack overflow he found while reversing lv2_kernel. But there are two problems:

    The vulnerability is in a protected syscall (the SELF calling it got to have the 040 control flags set). So youd first need to find a suitable usermode exploit (dont ask us), that gives you code execution with the right privileges.
    The payload data is copied to lv2 heap first and the function will do a free call on it before the payload has any chance to get executed. This might not sound like a problem but it looks like lv2′s heap implementation will overwrite the freeed space with 0xABADCAFE and thus destroy the payload.

    Here is my sample implementation for 3.41 lv2_kernel (although the vulnerability should be present in all versions of lv2 up to the latest firmware), maybe someone of you will find a way to overcome problem (2.) and can get something nice out of it because right now its only good to crash lv2.
